    Unhappy So the source has been leaked, its been delayed - think it couldnt get any worse ?...

    A *full* pre-release version just hit several P2P networks by the looks of it. Playable, all textures sounds ect...

    http://www.halflife2.net/

    I bet valve are *totaly* gutted now...

    Could this still get any worse ?...

    A word of warning :
    Do NOT link to files, sites with files, or anything illegal regrding this leak

    This sucks :/ Its like being told that the movie of the year is coming out in a month, a day before they then tell you that it isnt going to come out for another year because a film reel was stolen.

    What can they do now? They cant exacly reprogram everything, what would the point in that be?

    I do blame Valve more than anybody as there is alwas someone trying to get in a mess things up where ever you go. The bigger you are the bigger your defences should be.

    I can't believe that a PC with the source code on it would be so vunerable. Could they not even moniter the outgoing bandwidth?

    what i dont get is...

    was the -whole- source stolen (and then compiled), but only some of it released to the 'public' - hence vavle saying only 1/3 of the source had been stolen..

    or

    was 1/3 of the source stolen, and then somehow a beta was leaked... (ie e3 demo thing)..

    i think the former, but why would valve lie when they -knew- that the game would be leaked as soon as people managed to compile all the sourcecode..

    it really hasnt been valves week/month really..

    The source code was leaked via being hacked. From various reports ive read, it seems like they downloaded a compiled version aswell from the same computer.

    ive seen some screenshots of it, not sure if im allowed to link to them, but the game looks past doom3 e3 leak in terms of comleatness ... and i think that was being ran on a ti4200, which is nice, no need for everyone upgrade yet

    Well rather than a leak thats theft.

    I for one wont be going anywhere near it.

    I reckon after effort of the original Half Life, and the amount of work and effort into this one, Valve are deserving of my dosh. The first time I play this game will be after installing it from my pristine shrink wrapped copy bought off the shelf.

    Just did a few searches out of interest. Well I found something described as Half Life 2 iso's, so assuming they aren't fakes then they must be out there. Nope I'm not going to download it either.

    i will... i downloaded doom3 leak, and i dont regret that!
    i download a lot of games, if i play them then i buy them very soon after - its just to check if its any good as demos usually only show the best bits, and a lot of games i get bored with on the intro (halflife 1 - my brohter had done the 1st level for me and i stole his save) so its a good thing, ive got a few games that cost £30 each that ive not even installed yet!
    also i wanna check my pc is capable of playing it, so i know if i should save up some more £££ before it gets released, oh and also to be amazed by the good gfx

    how is that stupid? firstly i dont think i should pay £30 for a game that was made by half arsed coders, not that valve are, but they got hacked, so theyve done sommin wrong.
    im not buying it untill it runs playably, if i can test it then ill know what i need to get, valve will get there money sooner. i will defiantly be buying it, cant wait to play it online...

    my post imo was more usefull than Hades post atleast, what did u expect from a thread like this anyway? most ppl probly already new bout the leak, and if u think that is enuf for u to close the thread and delete it then tbh it must be a pretty crap thread. maybe you shoulda pmed me that, and i might have edited it.. now the thread is off topic, not that there was anything else on topic that could be added to it....

    theft is theft, whether you like it or not.

    i can't walk out of PC World with a laptop under my arm & then decide if i feel like going back & paying for it afterwards.....

    A small faq I found. Dont know how true it is though.
    "#halflife2 is to talk about the game. if you want the beta, goto #hl2_beta .. Do not request or post links (yes even torrent) in #halflife2.

    BETA is 1.4GB, 100X15MB rars

    console key is the tilde or ~


    Q: Is the source leak real?
    A: yes


    Q: is the BETA leak real?
    A: YES


    Q: How do you run the game?
    A: to runthe game click the exe and get to the main screen and hit ~ and type maps * for a list, then type map and the map name to run it.There are a couple dozen maps so far that I can see.


    Q: how do you turn on the hud?
    A: type cl_drawhud 1 in console


    Q: can you shoot enemies
    A: yes, and the AI attacks back, like that big flying mofo on e3_seafloor. Maps with working AI so far are seafloor and phystown


    Q: Do vehicles work?
    A: yes, the buggy and the jetski work

    Q: is the "beta" release a source or binary release? are linux binaries available?
    A: binary, no linux

    Q: what can you do in the beta?
    A: walk around and look and shoot, no structured story

    Q: Does multiplayer work
    A: possibly not 100% confirmed

    Q: is there blood
    A: yes blood works when shooting AI and being shot in several maps
    So it seems like it's far from a playable beta really.

    if there's no story and people dont know if MP works WTF's the point? Its like the Doom3 alpha leak - WTFs the point in dling it? Its frikkin alpha and was 2 years from complete.

    I'll just wait on my pre-order from play.com still as ever. Valve will deserve my money at the end of the day, even though their people need a slapping with a security manual.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    I know I won't be downloading anything to do with this game until they start bringing out patches for it. Why spoil it by playing a uncomplete version?
