Hi,
I've downloaded and installed "HSB4a-full.exe". I've checked if I've installed Half-LifeČ. All looked fine. I double-clicked on "Hidden: Source Beta 4" in the steamlist. But after "Preparing to launch Hidden: Source Beta 4..." the game don't came up. I see that it tried to start but it close without an error.

What can I do? I want to play it :(

System:
AMD Athlon XP 2600+
512 MB Ram
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
Windows XP

I hope anyone here can help me out :)

I've readed the HowTo for playing the game with HL2:DM, I was happy that it start but after it shown the logo the window close. I read some stuff, that says I must be 18+ to play the game. I know this before, because you need to be 18 to buy HLČ, too. What can I do now? How I get this working? Its so frustrating :(

Thanxs for your answer!

I got it working, but I had run HL2/HL2DM started before.
The problem was my desktop resolution: 800x600
The game dont support this correctly, after setting destkop solution to 1024x768 I startet the game changed ingame to 800x600 closed the game and reset my desktop solution.

And it works greatly!

Maybe write this into FAQ, if someone else get this problem.
