Half-Life

Filed under
Linux

I've been playing Half-Life recently, something to which I've looked forward for quite some time. I did get it playing under Wine years ago, but I thought I only got a little ways. I'm stuck In the Rails right now (the rocket level), but I remember this level.

I think this is as far as I got under wine. It got to where it couldn't save games and then couldn't load them, so I gave up. But I'm pretty hurt and almost out of ammo. I'm out of all the big stuff except for one of those mines you set and detontate when someone breaks the beam. I'm trying to sneak under the dang marines and set that at the bottom of the steps to try and take a couple out when they come after me. Then I can take out the other one with my m16 or whatever that machine gun is.

I keep seeing these "Such and Such on Steam for Linux," but you wouldn't know it from Steam. I think I finally saw somewhere if you buy the Windows version, the Linux beta will show up in your list as playable. Is this correct, does anyone know how that works?

Hey, it's taken at least 10 years, but I'm finally playing half-life as it was intended - even if Steam sometimes loses my latest save or two. Sad

  • Danbooru Client 0.6.0 released
    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
