Episode 1 will not load
« on: June 13, 2007, 09:11:06 PM »

Half-Life 2: Episode 1 for some reason won't load for me. I tried it before and it did work, but since I tried it today, it doesn't work. It just shows the loading screen, but when it comes to actually loading the background map, it exits and comes up with this error message:



I have no idea why this is happening. I tried reinstalling it, but to no avail. All other Source mods work fine. Does anyone have a clue why this is happening and, if so, how I can fix it?

The Steam Crash Test says my nVidia display drivers are out of date. I've downloaded the one the recommended, but when I run the installer, it says that it couldn't find any drivers compatible with my hardware. I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT. I am getting very, very annoyed with having to keep restarting my computer.

nVidia... 'nough said.
I have a Geforce FX 5200. To get onto the computer it has to be restarted about 6 times until it works. I've tried hundreds of drivers, none of them fixes the instability. Oh well, at least everything works at a much higher rate of performance than it did before the card was put in  ;D
But still, nVidia >:(
 Over a month old bump.

I enjoyed Episode 1 allot but I'm not gonna bother playing it trough again. You see, the game crashes at regular areas and times.
 Gah, don't bump STRAIGHT AFTER A WARNING FOR A BUMP, you idiot.
