I understand that there is no manual for Half-Life 2. I went into options and wrote down some key designations (use item "e") etc. But I don't see anything that tells you how to interact with people. Are there any instructions anywhere? nu2gaming

In the game, go to options and then controls. This will show you how your control keys are setup. Interact is the same as "use". I think with this game it is the "E" key.
Also, I'm pretty sure that there is a manual in the game folder.

I've just left the plaza, entered the building and witnessed the Combines attacking people in an apt. I went up the stairs and some guy is calling me into a room and tells me to go to the roof. Combines rush in and beat everyone, (me apparently to death). I tried running up the stairs but there is a pile of furniture in the way. No matter what I do I get killed. nu2gaming

Thanks friedmonkey; This thing needs a manual. I'm at the planks blocking my way (after lab) and I don't know how to use the crowbar. I can see it, I'm at the planks but pressing the "e" key does nothing. How could they not have a manual? Do they just assume that everyone has played the original game and knows all this stuff? nu2gaming

To use any weapon (and the crowbar is your first weapon) use your left mouse button. You should be able to switch weapons, after you have more than one, with your mouse wheel (if you have one).

You're on your way now! bravo

Sorry friedmonkey; I've pressed the left mouse like crazy and I'm not getting any movement. nu2gaming

Strange...the default controls must have changed somehow. In the game, go into options and then controls and click the default button. This will reset all of the controls to default.

Good morning; Once I have used a weapon (in this case the crowbar) how do I put it away? nu2gaming

EDIT: I'm in the hallway (at the Medical Console at the beginning of Chapter 3: Route Kanal) and I don't know how to put away the crowbar. Everytime I try to use the Med. Console I just keep hitting it with the crowbar. Someone please help. nu2gaming

EDIT 2: What happens if your suit goes down to 0?

Hi nu2gaming wave

I just checked inside my Half Life 2 box and there is no manual. However, there is a Quick Reference Card that lists all of the controls. Don't you have one?

You can't put away your weapons. The reason you can't get the Medical Console to respond is because you are using your left mouse button which is the attack button. Try using your "E" key with the console. That is your USE button.

Is there anyway to get Gordon to just inch forward? He always seems to go farther than I want him to and gets killed. nu2gaming

Try holding down your left Shift key while moving forward.

Thanks friedmonkey; Right now I'm at just after turning water valve. I'm back up at main room needing to jump in and find large valves. I've tried this a couple of times but ran out of oxygen and died. Think I'll take a break. nu2gaming

hi guys/gals; okay, what is the secret? I've been fooling with these blue barrels for a long time. Are there only supposed to be three? I'm thinking I have to get this ramp to tip, but I've pushed the barrels as far as I can get them and it still isn''t tipping. What now? duh nu2gaming

Put all the barrels in the water. Then jump in and put all the barrels inside the underwater cage to raise the ramp. I don't remember how many barrels there are. wave
