Is it possible to run this game?[edit]

I'm trying to get this game to run on a 32-bit Windows Vista system. This is an old version that comes on two CDs for two different types of operating systems, which once ran successfully on (I think) a Windows ME system. It installs properly - after first demanding an update to the original Half-Life. The opening credits and the menu of options appears properly. But when "New Game" is selected, it clears the screen and beeps five times, then says that there is a "failure to authenticate" the CD. Does anyone know about this? 24.152.227.135 (talk) 21:14, 28 November 2010 (UTC) Does anyone have an answer to this one? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.218.226.249 (talk) 04:13, 9 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This isn't really the place to ask questions like this. Here is really just for discussing improvements to the article, not general discussion on the topic. In this case, I'll suggest using the CD key and register the game with Steam, which should be compatible. Rehevkor 11:53, 9 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Valve Task Force Re-vitalization[edit]

Attention, all contributors to the Valve Task Force and the articles it constitutes!
I am here to announce that I will be re-vitalizing the Valve Task Force, aimed at universally improving articles constituting Valve Corporation, their employees, associates and products. This specific task force has been dormant for quite some time and with two very notable releases coming out this year, I feel like this is the appropriate time to re-stimulate the general aim of this group. For those who are not already members of the Valve Task Force, feel free to add your name to our members list and contribute to whatever articles you feel your contributions may prove beneficial for. Valve, its products and notable employees have proven to be essential to the progression of the video game industry, so I'd like to make a call of arms for this cause.
