Finished Half-Life, excellent game with the exceptions of, and this is my taste only:

I did do the Training, and had no problem with jumping sequences; but when he gets out in the field, forget it

I'm into HL2 and the graphics are awesome. Gordan seems to jump much better. Fighting my way through the Route Kanal and so far am enjoying it even better then HL1.

ShaggyDog, if I remember and have you in the right place, you need to get to the fan switch. Then get back so when the fans get to high speed you can jump into the air stream and get pulled up.

Thks Soozie but your in the wrong place, I past that, in We've got hostiles, I've killed the 3 headed beast, jumped down tothe pool, re-surfaced to get air, the walk through says to find a pipe to escape.
Cannot locate any pipe, I see 3 fans turning down below, but no escapr route;.

I remember having a terrible time in that spot. I couldn't see any opening either, but my video card wasn't rendering the water part correctly using Direct 3D and when I switched to OpenGL, I found it easily. I think it was a hole rather than a pipe.

Okay, think I've got it now. When you fell down and ended up by the pool, there's lots of radioactivity going on and you get a good gun, right? Okay so now you have to jump down in the water and swim around until you find an opening to take you thru.

I had to save and restore several times until I found it. Each time trying to memorize an outline or object. I think I swam down then north, then west, but I'm not sure ... you finally see a small white area.

I believe Pokey is right, it's a hole rather then a pipe. Just keep restoring and you will find it.

Ok guys, thks, I'll have a look andlet you know how I make out.
One question, is below down with the fans, or above in the main pool area, maybe near the dead monster.?

ShaggyDog ... hmm, the fans? I'm wondering if I do have you in the right area ... I don't remember the fans ... doesn't mean they aren't there, I just don't remember them.

After you killed the 3-headed monster you went to the center of the room and dropped down the big hole they were guarding. A long drop which landed you in a pool which you climbed out of and got the upgraded handgun, and whatever other stuff there was.

Then you jump back into the pool swim down and this is where you are stuck. Am I right so far?

If I am, when you jump back into the pool, swim under the pipes looking for an opening. You should end up in a radioactive room with a long pipe and a ladder leading to some goodies. Get the health stuff, climb back up and jump on the long pipe, follow it and find another pipe you can jump down to ...

If this doesn't do it, yell out.

Yes, your exactly where I am stuck. I think part of the problem is, I can't switch to open gl, apparently my video card (nvidia geforce3) doesn't support it, so when I dive in I can't locate where this pipe is.
To help me a bit more, which wall is it on, I see 1 wall with 2 pipes, on the opposite wall is 1 pipe down low with the dead monster on your left.\
Let you know how I makle out. Thanks

I can't remember which way I went once diving back in. I recall trying it different directions. Once I went down and to the right then up. Another down, to the left and up. I'm pretty sure I tried swimming under the pipes. I can't really say for sure; although I have a foggy, very foggy recollection, that it may be near the dead monster.

I still think we were right in saying your looking for an opening rather then a pipe. In this particular section the pipes are your hindrance, not your escape. I recall seeing a white or gray area, try swimming for that. Or just swim down under the pipes and then up in whatever direction until you hit it.

Keep at it, you'll find it.

Btw, I do agree HL2 is better then HL1, and definitely worth playing.

Hi, thks again. Yes I finally found it, it is down below the pool in the lower section where the 3 fans are, you need to swim near the ceiling of that area to find the opening and as you say, its not a pipe but an opening.
So I will carry on and hopefully if I get stuck again I will contact you thru this forum msg, Ok?
