    if i could find out who it was who hacked half life 2 i would PERSONALLY go and smash their face in... no i'm not joking, it's ******* idiots like them who ruin it for the rest of us... not only in delaying the release of it, but making the source code available to writers of aimbots and other hacks.. meaning the game may be screwed as far as multiplayer is concerned before it's even released.

    Hopefully Valve will use this extra time to re-encrypt the source code and make it un-hackable some how.

    The Game was always going to get leaked, Sooner or later.
    The powers that be arent as pissed off about
    this beta as much as the Source Code itslef.

    The Source code being leaked is what will
    cause a delay more then anything else,
    If there is a further delay of course.

    One thing too note thou,
    This beta build is supposed to be 26/09/03
    So if this build is the stage they were at
    2 weeks ago, these no way it would
    be ready for 30/9 and they must have known this for
    ages. Yet they still rigidly stuck to that rel date.

    Soz I can,t get worked up about the source code
    being leaked, Even thou I don,t agree with the source code
    being leaked, coz that,s valve,s blood and guts for the
    past 5 yrs.
    These just too much happening in the so called "real world"
    for me too get wound up by a hacker.
    Of course if as a direct result of the source code
    being leaked there is a delay, then these going
    to be plenty of hl fanatics pissed off.

    The truth is only valve know where they are
    with the game....and they don,t appear to be saying anything
    at the mo. Not that you would neccessarily believe them ethier.

    heres my 2p, ive also played it, its not a pre-gold its an amatuer compile of the source code which was stolen, the hacker claims it demonstrates all that valve have, it isnt much and LOTS of textures are missing. Theres two sides to the story, either u believe valve in saying they delay because the code was stolen OR u believe the hacker and that valve are using it as an excuse because the game isnt ready.

    THERE IS A LEAK, stop doubting it.

    A few places are taking pre orders for the rad cards boxed with HL 2. I believe they are being released Dec 5th. This still remains to be seen wether it happens or not though.

    There will be a gift certificate for getting HL2 when it comes out inside the 9800XT box!

    Release date is 10th April ... annoying isn't it!

    I had the displeasure of browsing the leaked demo round a mates house, he couldnt run it so I took a look at some of the audio files (im an audio nut) to see if there was anything good in there. Needless to say that a lot of the speech samples were very low quality and badly recorded, implying that it was the guys in valve to temporaty files, and they havent been done yet.... either that or they havent been stolen from valve...

    why anyone would spend ages DL'ing a 1.5gb demo leak is beyond me though... it takes the anticipation out of waiting for the release.... nothing will beat the relief of unwrapping a copy of the game and running it for the first time when its released.... its gonna be beautiful man
