Half-Life 2 old engine without "pirating"


#1

So I still have my physical copy of Half-Life 2 back from 2004, and I was thrilled to see that there is a common interest in going back to the unadulterated version with all of its idiosyncrasies, most notably the bunnyhopping and prop boosting.
However, the only way I have been able to get to play it is by the means of following links to large downloads with everything prepared for my enjoyment. It seems absurd that one has to resort to such an arguably nefarious act, defeating the purpose of the disc that I own. Is there a way to get the game to work from the disc itself without downloading more than a gigabyte from the internet?
The problem appears to be that the files are encrypted, so even if Steam is bypassed, it is still not possible to run the game.
