Description

This is unofficial patch for retail, pre-Steam, aka. WON version of Half-Life, which main feature is allowing user to set any resolution supported by the system when running in OpenGL or Direct3D mode. Field of view is also adjusted correctly for wide displays. The patch also fixes the error about the game requiring at least 16 MB of physical memory that occurs on some systems. As a bonus, the fix for incorrect MP3 files being played in expansion packs is included when using the undocumented MP3 playback feature in Half-Life v1.1.1.0.

Just the job, renamed all the the .mp3 tracks and running nicely now with correct monitor resolution and the music. Thanks very much indeed.

>FOV patch for Half-Life v1.0.1.6 and Blue-Shift causes the left and right sides of the screen to not black out when the game triggers that effect.

Still no solution for that, huh. v1.0.1.6 doesn't use textscheme, so beats me if it's even possible to fix it.

I don't know how to tackle that. There's something about internal workings of the older version of the engine that causes this to happen. Probably some value at another place must also be changed.

For some reason, patching my disc copy (v1.1.1.0) of Half-Life only shows display options up to 1920x1080 (Windows 10).

I have a 2160p and 1440p display but there are no listed resolutions above 1920x1080, so no 2560x1440 or 3840x2160 options(regardless of fullscreen vs windowed mode).

There seems to be no obvious reason for it to be doing this, any insight or a tweak I'm glancing over?

I'm currently on Nvidia driver version 399.24 for my GTX 1070.

Thanks for this patch!

The game is not multi-monitor aware, so you'll always see the resolutions of the primary display. Another limitation on the game side is that its resolution buffer is preallocated and can hold 50 resolutions at most. Could probably be lifted (do we even have configurations with such large number of display resolutions?).

Are you running the game in Windows 95/Windows 98 compatibility mode by any chance? This does limit number of reported resolutions, the last ones on the list are omitted.

Aha! I have an uncommon audiovisual setup for my home system since it also powers a home theater and some diagnostic bays.

Bypassing the HDMI audio pass-through from my receiver (which passes through to a 1080p display) fixed the issue and now all resolutions (including Nvidia DSR ones) appear!

I did notice 95/98 compatibility was blocking some resolutions so it's good to know this executable doesn't require it.

Thanks for the extra information!

Glad you figured out! My setup isn't anything special, so I didn't come up across such quirks. The game doesn't do anything special to retrieve resolutions, so the same resolutions should be seen in any game that ask the system which resolutions are supported.

i cant see any resolution above 1080p, i got an 1440p monitor

Do you have multiple monitors? It only enumerates resolutions of the primary monitor. Do you have compatibility mode set? If so, turn it off. There aren't any artificial restrictions in place regarding resolution. Works with 4K resolution on my end, although that makes the HUD ultra small.

I don't know how to help in that case since I can't reproduce the crash on my end.

So is the music without cd fix possible with the regular version of Blue Shift or is it only Blue Shift unlocked? Also great work with this fix, great for people like me who hate relying on steam for their games.

I haven't tried, but you could probably use DxWnd's virtual CD audio feature. You'll have to prepare the tracks according to its documentation then.

Will I get the option for 1920x1080 on the expansions too?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Yes. Blue-Shift is a bit special since it's a separate installation using separate engine files, so has to be patched separately; patched versions of those files are provided.

Or you can convert it to plain Half-Life mod with the help of Blue-Shift: Unlocked. Patching Half-Life affects mods as well. Conversion will also give you the ability to play music off MP3 files without having to use software emulating CD audio, since the separate (older) engine doesn't have the MP3 support.

So I ported the music from the steam Half-life folder to the media folder in my WON Valve directory.

No music. None. Is the Steam music not compatible?

Use Mp3tag software to remove tags from MP3 files, then it should work. The MP3 decoder that comes with WON version doesn't understand MP3 files with ID3v2 tags. Files without any tags or just ID3v1 tags are playable.

It's probably doable, but finding time for it is the problem.

Also have a 1440p monitor and the max resolution that's displayed on my end is 1920x1440 instead of 2560x1440.

Any idea how to fix this please? I have Win 10, I'm not running any compatibility mode on the exe either.

Surprised to see you have 4K resolution showing, yet mine can't show native 1440p option :(

Have you ever tried running 3DMark99 Max on your PC and does the desired resolution show there? I'm curious since it also uses DirectDraw's EnumDisplayModes method to get the resolution list. 3DMark99 will need the patch too: Drive.google.com

Still, the only limitation on Half-Life's side that I'm aware of is that it won't show more than 50 resolutions, so the first 50 reported get added to the list, the rest is ignored.

Another idea, Dege's dgVoodoo2 wrapper - Dege.freeweb.hu - see if the resolutions shows with it (and if its configuration utility displays it). The files DDraw.dll and D3DImm.dll from MS folder go to Half-Life folder.

Is it possible a version for HL: uplink could be created?

It might be possible (I'm assuming you're referring to the original demo with its own .exe), but I'm not sure when I'll find the time for these things again.

You can try installing Uplink as a mod to the existing installation. Since the old mod version seems to have disappeared from the internet, I've uploaded it here: Drive.google.com

Might be a good idea to put it on this site and other sites like this one sometime.

Does it work with 1.0.1.5?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I don't know what the differences between 1.0.1.5 and 1.0.1.6 are. The files for version 1.0.1.6 may work fine if 1.0.1.6 engine files don't introduce some incompatibility with any of the other files in the 1.0.1.5.

I guess in this case there's a greater chance that it works fine rather than it doesn't, but impossible to tell for sure without knowing what was changed.

Like others here, 2560 x 1440 is not showing up for me in Half-Life (or Opposing Force). 1920 x 1440 is the maximum resolution. However, it does show up in Blue Shift.

Opposing Force is technically a mod for Half-Life, so yes.

Hello. When I openning "hl.exe" it shows an error. It can't find "WONAuth.dll" even though it's there. I redownloaded and reinstalled everything including this patch but it still shows this error. What am I missing?
Edit: I also tried another resolution patch and it shows the same error.
