Apparently this is a 'must have' for HL2 owners -

It's a 700+ meg download and it replaces all low res textures, adds extra music and generally gives HL2 a much more 'Hollywood' feel.

Let us know if you try it.

I have owned HL2 since the day it was released in Holland, yet I have never played it and don't intend to :D
I just wanted CSS :D

Amen Link, I didn't think much of the old hi res pack for Half Life 1 when Blueshift came out either...

It says you need at least a 256mb Gcard and over 1.5Gb of ram to avoid stuttering - good job I have 3072mb of pc4400 and an overcloked x800xt

I have hosted some 1650x1080 (best quality) pics below. Overall it is much better then the original but I saw slight stuttering when enterting a new area a few times but not many - awesome quality

Yeah I myself bought HL2 for HL2 and CSS. Since I started on HL when it came out and played HL DM a bit. HL2 totaly blew me away although my CS training made it into a bit of a easy thing it still made me jump/panic at some stages. And watching my mate play it when I had enough for a bit it was even more intense as he has amateur FPS skills :)
