So does this mean that their Source games all run fine now that they have moved on?
I'm confused as to why they ported the GoldSrc version. They've got an official build of the original Half Life that runs on the newer source engine, why not use that one?
I suppose they don't care just for this specific game but for the collection of the games that runs on goldsrc.
According to a User named Fred, he emailed Valve about the goldsrc engine a yesterday or whatnot, telling them what a win/win senario it would be for them... who knows... (you can find this in the half-life(beta) post in the community section of Steam4Linux)
Any way to buy it without Steam?
I just clicked properties on Counter Strike in the Steam Linux client and joined this SteamPipe Beta, Counter Strike is now installed on my Linux steam client.
2. Mods. Lots and lots of mods.
3. Other GoldSrc games inculding the HL spin-offs.
4. Many Linux users outside of the US are running setups with hardware that is several years old, making GoldSrc the perfect choice to port due to it's age and level of optimization for that sort of hardware, so that they can get a taste of what Steam can offer them.
