Half-Life

Filed under
Linux

I've been playing Half-Life recently, something to which I've looked forward for quite some time. I did get it playing under Wine years ago, but I thought I only got a little ways. I'm stuck In the Rails right now (the rocket level), but I remember this level.

I think this is as far as I got under wine. It got to where it couldn't save games and then couldn't load them, so I gave up. But I'm pretty hurt and almost out of ammo. I'm out of all the big stuff except for one of those mines you set and detontate when someone breaks the beam. I'm trying to sneak under the dang marines and set that at the bottom of the steps to try and take a couple out when they come after me. Then I can take out the other one with my m16 or whatever that machine gun is.

I keep seeing these "Such and Such on Steam for Linux," but you wouldn't know it from Steam. I think I finally saw somewhere if you buy the Windows version, the Linux beta will show up in your list as playable. Is this correct, does anyone know how that works?

Hey, it's taken at least 10 years, but I'm finally playing half-life as it was intended - even if Steam sometimes loses my latest save or two. Sad

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
