Yeah it’s pretty cool that some explosion-boosts/shortcuts are possible even though the explosion-boosting in HLS is very different from explosion-boosting in HL. I’m kind of interested in doing a “casual speedrun” of HLS, or a speedrun as good as I can do it, but I keep getting a “memory can’t be read”-error every time that I try to play a demo - this pisses me off!
Now this would be cool to see, also is that error coming up in console or a error box?

I’m really tired of this but might go through all possible solutions tomorrow, but I’ve already tried reinstalling HLS once (and that didn’t work).
Yeah. I have the same demo problem. Someone should email valve. <_<
I’m getting the same damn error, I sent a email to Valve with a picture of the error, I’ll post what get back in here.

Most of them are quite simple though, such as “Disabling Background Applications”…I will post here when I’ve gone through my 12-solutions-list. Crosses fingers for luck
I have talked to a few people today playing HL:S, told them to try to record and play a demo, it crashed for all of them. I have also put in a support ticket as well as a 2nd email seeing as how Valve doesn’t really respond the first time around.
When I emailed Valve about the ep1 run, I emailed Yahn Bernier, and I got a response from him. He might not have worked on HL:S, but maybe he’ll talk to someone who did for you?
Any response from Valve is usually pretty good. If we can get a whole update on HL:S just for us though, it would be awesome. :lol:
I put in an email to them Wednesday and a ticket Friday, haven’t heard shit, whats Yahn’s email?Edit: I sent the email to email@example.com
… Beginning to lose faith.

Please God/Allah/Buddha/Shiva/insert your God here let something work!!edit: It’s so weird because it never used to be a problem in the past. I mean we even had a “HLSource DQ”-run in the workings a year ago or so…
Oh yeah… I had forgotten about that. Have there been any updates since you ran it?
QUOTE (typical @ Dec 30 2009, 03:31 PM)Oh yeah… I had forgotten about that. Have there been any updates since you ran it?Not any updates that I know of.I just went through the “12-solutions-list” and nothing worked. Settings at the lowest, all background softwares were turned off, verified the integrity of the game files, defragmented game cache, deleted config-files, deleted old save-games, used additional launch settings (+mat_forcehardwaresync 0 +snd_async_prefetch_priority 1), increased my computers Virtual Memory, (reinstalled before and that didn’t help), some minor weird changes that were suppose to help… still that “memory could not be read” error. Damn.Valve? Yahn? We need you!
Hmm. I’m going to ask Demonstrate when those demo’s were recorded that he put in this youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vH210ikJfoHopefully then we could completely un-install the game completely and patch by patch go to the spot when demo recording worked. The trouble is that do patches get removed when you un-install?
This has just recently started to happen. We’ve never had this problem before.
But has there even been any updates to HLS that we know of? Although I guess it could have been some generic source-engine update that messed up HLS. I don’t know, I’m lost. Our fate is in the hands of Valve and Yahn (if Inexistence still knows his email)…
