    I just bought the game and installed it ang got the following " error steam.exe (main exception0 unable to load library stea.dll), i then tried to install via the net and more than one hour later and after giving my game id number, I had on the desktop a steam icon, H/L deathmatch icon, H/L 2 deathmatch icon H/L 2 episode one icon, and another steam icon in the systray, i clicked the H/L 2 episode one icon but could not start the game as it tried to connect, I am not in the least interested in playing on line, i just want to play in single paly mode, so how do i install correctly, hopefully i uninstalled thoroughly (but i dont think so)

    thank you

    hello m8 ,
    first of all you need to have valves game client "STEAM" installed on your machine inorder to play valves games .. steam will need to connect to the net inorder for you to connect to the desired game .. so fire up steam and under the my games tab . slect episode 1 and it will launch .. just so you know there isnt a MP game for episode 1 .
    hope this helps ,
    Cheers
    MGT .

    It's really not a big problem , you HAVE to have steam installed in order to play these games .. i personally think steam is 1 brilliant piece of software .. but why would you need 1½ hours . steam .exe is only about 708 kb so that doesnt take more than a few seconds to download .. then under the my games tab select episode 1 and install it .. simple m8 .
    good luck
    Cheers

    Steam will require you to download all the latest patches for a game before being able to play, so maybe that's what took that length of time?

    that is the beauty of steam . you dont need ot go and find updates for your game , they are just applied when you fire up steam .. so check the "my games" tab in steam to see if they are 100% ready to play .- easy as pie
    cheers
