2. Start DPArray. Confirm your acquaintance with ADP if needed.

3.2. If you already have (or will have after the previous step) the mod version 13.5 or newer, download the ESHQ update package.

4. Perform installation steps in suggested order.

Older updates log you can find here


When I found out about the 9.x updates, I installed them into an empty directory in c:\bin\ESQL10. (The gameinfo.txt in the valve directory says version 10...?)
The icon starts the game using:
C:\bin\ESHQ10\hl.exe -dev -console

When I started it for the first time, it came up in a window, not full screen.

I then changed the video settings to not run it in a window, and
use the max screen size, max gamma, and added my usual control
keys, w-s-a-d for movement and others.
Now when I run it, it tries to run full-screen, but the screen stays black for a long period (the last time I waited for 15 minutes, no initial screen with menus ever showed up.
I tried changing the desktop icon to run in a window, then
the smaller half-white screen (console?)comes up with no text in it, in front of a full-screen whiter screen and the disk light on my desktop goes full on and stays there. The mouse disappears.

Is there a way to use command-line switches to run 9.x initially as a window, so I can adjust it whenever I'd like to play it ? have a great mod here.

Sorry for late answer, we haven't received a notification about this (article) comment. For faster troubles solution, please, use main page's comments section.

May be, our engine version doesn't support your (large?) monitor. It's old a bit, and it has problems like this.

To get to initial state you can remove 'video.cfg' file from 'C:\bin\eshq\valve' directory. Or open it and change value of 'setr fullscreen' parameter to '0'. And then start 'hl.exe' again.

And please, remind us about results. Thank you!
