    We need more details. What is the new of the game and the version you are using? What is your PC configuration? A make and model would be nice. What OS are you running and service packs have you installed. Did this problem exist in a previous OS, and what was it?

    The thing that kills me is I have a problem with HALF LIFE FREEZING my rig....

    500Mhz Win2K Pro
    Voodoo3 2K
    500+ MSDRAM

    When I get up to go do something for a few minutes I come back and I have to RESET sometimes... Sometimes if I use Task Manager, I go back into the game and the only way to fix an error that I get saying video is not compatible or sumtin like that, then I have to re-boot to fix the 2nd problem, but I still have the 1st problem of FREEZING...

    Let me know if you can ever get yours working solid....
