    Unhappy Half-Life 2 Pre-Gold..Looks like things just got worse =/

    The ANON leaker/hacker (anonymous), has said in an undisclosed IRC channel and room that he will be releasing the Pre-Gold version of Valve's Half-Life 2 tomorrow with the 100% SourceCode. When asked why he will be releasing it so soon after the Beta he said "I suggested Valve to stop lying to their customers about how much was stolen. However, they disregarded my statement and called me a liar. Now they will see how much I have been lying when I release the Pre-Gold and all 100% of the sourcecode. Actions speak louder then words."

    I was in the IRC channel and room when people where buzzing with the new news. I just wanted to let you guys know, for you all will know soon enough, especially when it will be out tomorrow. I just hope Valve does something and something real soon.

    And for you guys that will come in here flaming, it is not fake and I did not make this up. In a little while go into any IRC channel (I won't tell you which) and you'll hear the buzz too. Remember, Im just trying to tell you guys what's up. Judge me tomorrow when it comes out if you want. I am not trying to support Warez but its not like I can do anything about it to stop him.

    There is no pre gold release.

    It acctually looks like it wasnt now - several people are saying they have it. I dont know how reliable they are, but im sure we'll find out tomrrow when it will hit the news sites if its true.

    Well i a mate of mine from my cs clan, has claimed he has got the copy and that its brilliant etc. I know he doesn't lie so i think that it has been realeased.

    I myself will wait until the full copy comes out, if it ever does come out as i would like to support the creators not go against them as it looks like a brilliant game.

    Agent there more then likely talking about the beta,
    This anon bloke also leaked hl & cs for hl2 apparantly
    there inbuilt to hl2 , here,s an extract i
    took from the rel nfo:
    |
    | Regarding Half.Life.2.Beta.Patch1-ANON.tar: |
    | Ok, the last release was my mistake. I thought I didn't |
    | integrate these patches yet, but that was proved being wrong. |
    | Sorry for the non working patches, i didnt intend to waste all |
    | this precious bandwidth. |
    | |
    | Regarding Half.Life.2.Pre.Gold-ANON: |
    | This is fake, and I will never give out info about my releases |
    | in public. |
    |

    Also if he did have a pre gold rel, I,m sure he would have leaked that instead of the Beta, which is more like an alpha. I think what is already out, is it.

    Such a shame all this has happened
    It is a shame this happened,

    But it the Beta is not the full game,
    sure it has the maps, there is no narrative,
    most of the maps are missing textures/buildings etc,
    and last for 5 mins.
    I would say the most you,d get from the 4 gig install
    required is 60 mins of actual gameplay, and i use gameplay
    in the loosest term possible, really it will give you an
    idea on how hl2 will run on your sys,
    And yes you will see graphics that you havnt
    quite seen before.

    Such a Shame that this has happened thou,
    I suggest you don,t d/l and save yourslef
    till it,s actually released, It will be worth the w8,
    thats for sure otherwise after playing those few
    playable levels in the beta, other games mostly
    pale by comprasion, it,s too much of a spoiler.

    On a side note, I picked up a 9500np which worked
    perfectly with the 9700 softmod, came
    home installed it, was running some tests, then i
    heard hl2 beta was leaked...lol...i needed to know
    how it would run, and it runs on a 2200xp with 512 meg
    pc2100, 95@ 9700 pro at 1028 with 4x af and 4 aa
    like a dream, it really does.
    Anyone who,s got a 9700 upwards is going to
    be well happy with how it runs dx9.0.

    this beta is not the pre-gold, ive had a go myself, lots of textures are missing and its uncompiled and quite ugly looking.

    How could you do this to yourself? I know you have been waiting ages for HL2 like millions of others, now surly by playing a half arsed version it will take something away from the full version when you finally get it?

    Once you have seen it you will never be the same
    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    That is the reason why i am actually waiting for it, the game wont be new to you because you would have already played it. Don't think this will be coming out this year now, so don't know how long ill be waiting for.
