valve brought today update out to let people play it on linux with new optimized engine wich also prevents play it FOREVER ANY MODS game titles like half life 1 half life 2 counterstrike 1.6 and source

does it mean esf will die? otherwise esf must work on a pirated hl game !

this is not a lie.. start hl and it updated not even if u reinstall esf and stuff it wont start it gives error

now im starting to believe after what they did today with hl and counter strike 1.6 WTH WE DID VALVE !!**** those linux users!!

it updates after you start any mod or the game itself even if u remove the game and completly redownload it, it wont play any mod anymore

aktualising the game :

"We want to raise awareness to Valve and let them know they have broken EVERY Half-Life mod that have been released."

Read the sentence very carefully.

Let's hope indeed that they'll fix it but as it says every mod that has been released
i think it's fixable by the team itself even though this would bring a lot of work i guess.

Edit:

I just tried to launch esf. it worked.
I tried opening ingame server browesr. Failed.
I tried joining esf 1.2 from external server brower. Succeeded.
Gameplay you asK? pretty normal, empty server but still...

don't think this will bring to much problems

--- edit ---

i tested with a 1.2.3 server btw

the reason why it could work on u guys its because the game is not set to be updated in propertys

go to game bibliothek rightlclick on half life then propertys/updates and set on automatic updates : keep game updated

most people have it not and wont get the issue but the must be updated for those who just buy it now or need to redownload!

I'm pretty sure 99.9% of people that use Steam have their games set to update automatically. Mine is fully updated, I can play just fine, although the server browser doesn't find any servers, I have to enter a server ip manually.

Also, this might have just been the server overriding my config, but I was getting like 800 FPS and FPS max was set to 100.

I think it has to do something that they updated their master server, because when I try to start up my dedi server in Steam it says I need to update HLDS so that it can be viewed on the master server. Therefore, servers can't be seen on the server list, but you can still connect to servers online by typing the ip adress manually.

So far we have the following issue.

The Half Life directory has moved to the common foulder. As a result all mods have to be moved to that directory. YOu also have to delete the old half life foulder after you move the mods. ESF 1.2.3 works OK after moving it. (according to raven im still updating HL and will see when thats done)

Apparently the issue comes with dedicated servers. According to initial research, there is a new tool for hosting dedicated servers. This new tool contains STEAM. So you have to log in to STEAM itself in order to run a dedicated server.

I really don't get what the buzz is all about. Sure, they moved it, so what? Move the mods too and be done with it. Hard-coded paths of course won't work anymore, but who cares anyway? Only idiots use these. Yes, I mean you, Black Mesa Source devs.

@Grega, it's been a while that you can run HLDS through the Steam tools list, it's been updated now however.

YOu could yes, but it wasnt necessary. Now you must have a STEAM account for HLDS to even be useable.

-Added support for Mac OS X and Linux operating systems
-Enabled Cloud support for save games

That's not entirely true. While SteamCMD is, essentially, a full-fledged Steam client, you can log in anonymously.

Try right clicking on halflife and ESF and properties --> general ---> set launch options and write -nofbo in both games; see if that helps.

correct, but the hlds is not accessible while being logged in anonymously it seems, at least not last friday.

Edit: They changed it so you may access it now.
