Do you have HL2:DM? If so, there is a way to make it work with that.

^^ What he said. Install it into your

steam/yourusername/HL2 deathmatch/

directory. it'll make a subdirectory called hidden inside of it.

then, load up steam and right-click HL2 DM > Create Desktop Shortcut

Do a properties of the shortcut. Under 'Target' add

-game hidden

Run that shortcut and it should load Hidden.

So do you mean add the -game hidden to the end or take out whats already in that box? im installing HL2 DM but do I have to have it fully updated before I can play Hidden?

To the end. If it doesn't work, then wait for it to be fully updated.

If you never play HL2 DM, there's an even easier way. Just right-click it in Steam itself and goto Advanced. Add the
-game hidden

and it'll work whenever you click LAUNCH on the Steam thing.

Otherwise, the Shortcut is supposed to point at hl2.exe in the HL2 DM directory IIRC.

I dont know what the "advanced thing is all about, i dont have that as an option. I tried the first way, as well as another way involving creating a shortcut to steam with a bunch of tags that i dont really understand. anyway both ways gave me the error message: hl2.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program ... An error log is being created.... *ok box*.

I tried "restarting the program", obviously, and it didnt do a damn thing except, again obviously, give me the same ****ing error message. OMGWTFBBQ what does it take to get this game running ><
