Uploading HL2 to Steam!!

YEA... there uploading halflife 2 to steam now!!
I think I might by the bronze back, so the day it finishes I can play it.
Half Life 2 will hauls so much ass!
Cheeck out the bink videos if you didnt see them. The HL2 engine is going to be running good. The game physics are so awsome. If you see a box or a bottle you can do anything to it. Move it , Throw it, Push it. The gravity gun will be able to throw people in the air or you can take a object and throw it. Imagine how much coding that took to do. Better make sure you have a good video card for this game, ATI Radeon x800 is the way to go if your building a new machine and your gettin this game with it. I just hope it goes gold before November 2nd. Or we might have to wait for another 7 months.
:clap:

Actually, in HL2 you cannot throw people with the gravity gun, although you can deal them damage with it.

And here's already the first tweak for ATI video cards...

Dave Baumann of Beyond3D said:
ATI users might want to use the following command for areas of HL2 that are graphics limited (this might work with CS:S as well):

+r_fastzreject 1

The command enables Z fill geometry pass in order to speed up rendering of the full scene rendering pass - by default I'm told it is disabled for ATI as they had some slight performance drops in the more CPU limited levels, however there are gains to be had in graphics limited levels.

AFAIK this is presently a default option for NVIDIA (the testing was done back with 9800 / FX's), but should be updated as the default for both in the future.
