Rusty; Sometimes I save by pressing "F6" and sometimes it auto saves and sometimes I hit "quit" and save. nu2gaming

Do you see any saves at all in the list that are called "Quick Saves"? Those would be the saves from pressing F6.

Yeah some, but sometimes, like today, all the saves are from 2 days ago. I don't know what is happening to the rest of them. I save when the w/t says there is a rough spot up ahead, and before my health gets too low, so I can try it again. I don't know Rusty. nu2gaming

I'm sorry I can't help you with this save problem. I don't know what would prevent only some of the Quick Saves from showing up in the load list. duh I've never heard of this problem with any game.

Hi Rusty; Guess I'll just have to live with it. Right now I'm in some kind of big pipe and just around the corner is the exit with a chopper hovering. If he sees me he shoots into the pipe. I back up and he quits firing. Can I wait him out? My health points are down to 14, right at the exit are two supply boxes but with the chopper at the opening I can't get to them. Do I just have to bite the bullet and hope I can get the supplys before he kills me? Or can I hide and he will go away? nu2gaming

I'm not sure. I don't remember this exact part. I would recommend trying different things and see what happens.

You are doing great! bravo

Good morning; Okay, how in the h*** do you take out the chopper near the end of chapter 4? I've shot the heck out of him, he's on fire, parts blowing off but he gets right over me and I can't fire at him and he bombs me to death. nu2gaming

EDIT: Hey! I found a fantastic site with lots of hints and "secrets" about Half-Life 2. It's fantastic!!: http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=92135&rid=85563

You guys are so sharp you probably already know this, but I just stumbled on it and I think it's great. Check out the fantastic way to finish off the hunter-chopper in this part.

Do you ever go into the main menu/save menu and make a save from there? That is what a real or manual save is. They don't disappear. Quick saves use the same save slot over and over again which is why they keep disappearing on you. It sounds to me that is all you are using. Quick saves are great to have but are NOT meant to be a replacement for real saves.

My Quick Saves never used the same save slot. I had alot of them to choose from when loading. Every Quick Save I made was there. duh

You're right Satine, I have been using "quick save" a lot, only doing a hard save when I was getting out of the game. I know better now. I don't think I'll be using quick save any more. praise thanks nu2gaming

Boy, could I use some help. I'm at the windmill roadblock (a big double tanker truck blocking the road) and I can not find any way to get past it. There are two huge boulders on the left but the space between them doesn't seem to be big enough for me to drive thru. There is no way on the right (I wound up in the water). How do I get past here? help nu2gaming

EDIT: Got it. It was the mossy hill on the right. I just wasn't hitting it right. nu2gaming

I have no idea where you are in the game. There are alot of Vortigaunts in the game. Just try different things and see what happens. Also, please see what the walkthroughs say to do in this part.

Rusty; I'm in the first Vortigaunt camp where I'm being instructed in the use of pheremones. The Vortigaunt leads me out of the main camp area and tells me to throw the pheremone at something. I can't understand what he is saying. It sounds like "throw it far, at the light". But I don't know. Can anyone tell me what he is saying?

EDIT: I finally turned the sound real high and was able to hear what he was saying. I am now entering Nova Prospekt. nu2gaming

Hi gamecheater thumbsup
The first Half-Life was released for the PC and PS2 only.

Hi nu2gaming

I knew you would figure it out eventually!

wave help I need some suggestions. I'm right at the beginning of "Follow Freeman", trying to take out the sniper from behind the truck. When I try throwing grenades they don't go anywhere near the window with the sniper and I always get killed. What am I doing wrong? Why aren't my grenades going very far? nu2gaming

If I remember correctly woozy , you have to aim using your mouse and then let the granade go by clicking your left mouse button. The grenade should fall where you had aimed the crosshairs at.

Hi Rusty; I've tried that but it's not working. Maybe my timing needs to be better. The w/t does say wait until you hear him fire before you pop up. So far I haven't had much luck. nu2gaming

Rusty; Gave up trying to take out the sniper with the grenade. Ran to the supplies under his window, got up into the building with Barney and took out both snipers from there. Now I'm outside battling my first striders. Whew! These guys are tough. W/t says it takes six rockets to knock one out and I only have three. So I must have to find some way around them for now. nu2gaming

Hi nu2gaming thumbsup
You have an unlimited supply of rockets, as long as you are near a rocket chest. Every time you close the chest it is restocked with rockets.

Before you're able to get to the rocket supply chest, you'll have to pick up individual rocket lanchers to get their ammo. One is in the small building on the other side of the main building. Once you shoot all the rockets, another launcher will spawn in there. After you drop the first crawler, get to the small concrete bunker in front of the main building. Use the rockets in there to drop the next crawler. Then you can get to the rocket supply crate on the other side of the street.
