HL2 demo bug help?


#1

Hi all,I downloaded the demos for the HL2 run, and I was attempting to view them through my copy of HL2 purchased through Steam. I ran into the following problem:First, I extracted the demos into the directory C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps[MY STEAM NAME]\half-life 2\hl2, meaning that there are a bunch of demo files in that folder, and no more subdirectories between that directory and the demos themselves.I enabled the console and ran the command demoui in the console without any problem. I double clicked on a demo to load it, but I got the following error message in the console:Host_Error: CL_CopyNewEntity: invalid class index (166).Could someone please point out what I’m doing wrong? Thanks in advance!Comp specs:AMD Athlon XP 64 3500ASUS A8N5X mobo1gb ramPNY NVidia Geforce FX 7600 GTRegards,Rahzel

I think you’re trying to play demos that use an “older” version of HL2, the “older” demos are all maps before d2_prison_01 I think.here is a post I posted a while ago, it should help (I hope):OLD POST:I think that you are trying to watch older demos, and the older demos are running on a different version of the game - and this means that if you try playing an old demo with an updated version of HL2 it won’t play.This is the backup that makes it possible to watch old demos (thanks to doxliy):http://files.filefront.com/hl2v7b2455backu…;/fileinfo.htmlCheck this thread if you have problems of any kind:http://z7.invisionfree.com/HL2DQ_Temp_Foru…owtopic=79&st=0I hope this is your problem, if not: :frowning:
