A link file for older hl2 version


Hello, so i was recently looking for an old engine build of Half-Life 2 and a friend linked me this: Older version of Half-Life 2? now unfortunately the link file download is not working and he doesn’t have it either and it won’t work without it. So if anyone here has the file saved is it possible for them to upload it for download?


If you want 4044 specifically you can download this:

Or check out the Source Unpack:

download the GCFs from here:

Download the Source SDK 2006 and copy all of that over it and run hl2.exe

Alternatively you can link me your steam account, I’ll verify that you own HL2 and give you a link to an earlier 2707 build of HL2, premade.


I would like an early version of HL2


I’d love to get the even earlier version my profile can be found here http://steamcommunity.com/id/jerpism. But thanks for the 4044 file.

Edit: so the steamemu can’t find any gcf files and i can’t either inside the zip file you provided i have reinstalled verified sdk 2006 and installed and overwritten and not overwritten files in many different combinations even changing the “source engine.gcf” inside the steamemu.ini and yes, i did replace the basedir location. i just can’t seem to get it to work i’m a nub :confused:


I’ve sent you a PM with a full Old Engine build.
