Old Version of Half-Life 2: Deathmatch

Hey guys,I am going to make a Half-Life 2: Deathmatch frag video, and most of the footage is from demos which I can no longer view do the VALVe’s so called “updates”. So what I need is a pirated version of Half-Life 2: Deathmatch BEFORE the HDR update. I know some of you have the pirated version of Half-Life 2, but what I want is Half-Life 2: Deathmatch.Thanks,- Gordon

Do you have legal fully updated latest hl2+hl2dm ?If yes, then it is easy to make “old” demos working =)First, get hl2v7b2455 update here (5.5mb) http://files.filefront.com/hl2v7b2455backu…;/fileinfo.html2nd - unrar it anywhere but not in steam folder3rd - if your steam install folder is not typical (c:\program files\valve\steam) then open steamenu.ini with wordpad and at line “basedir” write your path to “steamapps” folder, where GCFs are located4th - at that hl2v7b2455backup folder create subdirectory “hl2mp” and copy there file “GameInfo.txt” from your current hl2mp folder5th - start hl2.exe from hl2v7b2455backup folder with “-game hl2mp” command line, it should startDon’t forget to turn on console at keyboard options =)Now all you need is copy your “old” demos to this hl2dm folder and play themIve tried this myself just a couple of seconds ago, it worked for me =)

Hey Pincus, let us watch you frag-video when it’s done…ok ? :wink:

Wow. Thanks for that. It worked! I will post a link to the video once I have finish it. That might be in about 1 month or so. It will be full of 1v1 frag high lights and maybe a few dm tricks :)- Gordon

nice. I’m looking forward to it B)

Glad that it worked for you =)I like q3 movies, but never seen any hl2dm movies, and will wait for it.

OMG. Stupid update. I am just about to go through all my 1v1 demos, and I cannot open it. It complains about friendsui.dll something. Ive tried everything! I cannot even open HL2 with the old engine :(HELP!


In 2008, we created a “mod” for HL2DM. It’s basically just a level with specific rules and different assets, there was no custom code since none of us knew how to do that. I’d really like to try this out again, but it doesn’t work anymore with the current HL2DM version. Is there a way to get this to work again? You can check it out for yourself, the website for our mod is still online: http://babelbabel.elitepigs.de/
