ok i noticed these questions going on all day about "how do i install this game" and like that so i now am gonna write how:

First go to a shop and buy yourself a Half-life1copy
(if you dont have one already)

then install half-life on your computer (f.x C:\half-life)

now download steam (if you dont have it) here:http://www.steampowered.com/index.php?area=getsteamnow
and register a account for steam

ok enter steam and look in you Half-life1 cover for a cd-key and go in the "browse games" menu in steam then you press "register a cd key i already own" and write in the cd key in the cover of your half-life1 copy.

ok now you will get a "message" about you just got half-life platinum pack
and what games you have available. choose one of these games (or all of them if you like) and run it in steam (play it) once (you dont need to enter a server or anything just start the game and exit it)

now you will find a folder with your accountname in your steamappsfolder (f.x c:\steam\steamapps\youraccount)
where you shall put your installed half-life folder.
now install ESF latest version to the half-life folder

enter steam and look in the "play games" menu it should have a place where it says "third party games" and ESF should be there

happy gaming

just to add something


You have 2 ways of installing ESF:
1.) You download ESF b1.2.3 full installer and install that
2.) You download ESF b1.2 full installer and then get ALL the patches and install them (first ESF 1.2.1 patch, then ESF 1.2.2 patch and then ESF 1.2.3 patch)

well as you see this starting from scratch i wouldnt think about patches as a possibility if you have an older version you would most certain have been playing ESF before and know all about how to install it. right?
