In light of the new Linux, Mac, and SteamPipe additions made to Half-Life on Steam, a required update was made necessary for the mod. Hence, version 1.1 of Half-Life: Dreamcast is now available to add full compatibility with the recent Steam changes. Due to the nature of this update, a single patch is not possible. Be sure to delete the previous version of the mod before installing 1.1!

Half-Life: Dreamcast v1.1

Be sure you have Half-Life on Steam installed!

If you encounter issues such as scripted sequences not working, chances are your saved games from the base Half-Life game are conflicting with the HL: DC mod. This can occur even if you don't load these saved games. To address this problem, go to your Half-Life save game directory ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\ [SteamName]\half-life\valve\SAVE ) and either delete all files you find there or temporarily move them to a different folder. You may need to disable Steam Cloud synchronization for Half-Life to prevent Steam from automatically redownloading the saved games.

As stated, it makes the mod work again after the Steam Half-Life updates.

The new location is Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-Life/ for SteamPipe. You also need to add

gamedll "..\valve\dlls\hl.dll"
gamedll_linux "../valve/dlls/"
gamedll_osx "../valve/dlls/hl.dylib"

to the liblist.gam file.
