If anyone happens to have a problem of textures not appearing (thus everything would be a bright purple to indicate a missing texture) saving the game and reloading fixed it for me.

"Kill 30 enemies with thrown physics objects"? you get this achievement by throwing objects with the gravity gun and killing an enemy. pull stuff in (left trigger) then shot it at the enemy (right trigger)

after defeating the hunter chopper in the water hazard level you will have to open a gate to get up to a building. instead of going to the building go through the gate straight to the back and you will see two pipes the one on the left is the one the "singing thing" is in. use your air boat to get into the pipe and make sure you have plenty of health.

the flares are in episode 1

On Testroom 18, how do you get up to the crate? Its the big room where you take out 4 turrets and then get the square platform to go from side to side. When i reach the other side and try to jump for it i always miss. You can't use a portal and you can't grab the crate in the middle of the jump so i have no idea how this thing works.

I'm having trouble with this part on advanced. On normal, you activate the switch one level below the crate. The wall will pop out on the opposite side of the room (the same wall that popped out to let you into the room originally), portal yourself next to the wall, place a portal on the wall that's sticking out and angled, then there should be a small floor amidst the acid below from where you're standing (look over the edge below to find it). Place a portal down there and fall into it and you'll go flying across the room into the crate area. I'm having trouble because that floor by the acid is gone in advanced. I've tried falling into the floor near the crate and switch, but it's at an angle and I always miss my mark. Good luck.

for advanced, before you enter the room with the turrets and cube, hit the switch to open the angled door, quickly go through and turn around and place a orange portal on the angled door, then quickly go back through the door towards the button (where the cube will go) and free fall to the level below and quickly shoot a blue portal which will shoot you out to the cube if done quickly enough. Then use the cube to protect you from the turrets. walk out to the edge fall and quickly walk backwards. You will land on the level below. Shoot a portal above the door (that is currently closed) and one on the wall beside you. hit the switch, grab your cube and jump through. You can now advance to the next portion.

In advanced, you can't remove the turrets. The floor in the acid area was moved to below the switch. To go flying out the angled door, place a portal on the door once it's open, and RUN inside, jump over the button and place a portal on the floor on your way down. You'll go flying across the room, grab the portal once you land, use it as a shield, jump down past the switch, place a portal down there, and bring the box through it. (this will bring you to the door across from the button, if you placed the right portals).

I'm not exactly sure what your question is. You can drive the hovercraft onto toxic water and it won't hurt you.

leave him in that area, but for godssakes not near the elevator. i suggest by one of the ammo crates. keep an extra save just in case.

you CAN take him with you, but i wouldn't recommend it. it makes the part with the antlion gaurd insanely hard.

Apparently when I played through HL2 I didn't kill all the snipers though I swear I did. Maybe one was hidden. Anyone remember which level the first one appears on and how many there are? Thanks.

Never mind, I found it and got it myself. I missed the one in the alley as I thought I could get it from the upper floors of the building, but you can't.

It's in the chapter "Follow Freeman" and it's at the very beginning. There are five snipers. Two in the street (one straight ahead and one to the right down an alley, you have to throw high to get it far enough) and then there is one on the second floor and two on the top floor.

I think I know where you are talking about. there's a big dam, and you have to go through a building and find a way to open the dam. If it is the one I am thinking of, if you make it far enough through the building, a door will eventually lead outside, behind the dam, and you notice a broken valve. Well, while looking at the valve, turn to the right and you'll notice some red barrels. Shoot the barrels and your path will be open. Hoped this helped.

So I'm at Highway 17 with a combine up on a billboard and I don't have the crossbow. Am I supposed to have the crossbow by now? I tried looking for items I could shoot at him that would impale him but that failed. Do I do it later? Any help would be much appreciated.

When you reach the bridge under Combine control in Highway 17, there's a hill on the right side of the road. Go up the hill, there's a crossbow next to a dead Resistance fighter. Pick it up and zoom in on the Combine standing in front of the billboard on the other side of the bridge. You might wanna save right before shooting in case you miss, that way you can try again if you run out or anything. Hope this helps!

Unhappy

I recently came across this site and used the invincibility cheat in the middle of the game (after I came out of mines) just to see how it works.

That cheat took the fun out of the game and ruined it for me.

Can someone pleaaaase tell me how to disable the cheat so that I can play it like a normal person?
