Did the HL2 turret standoff get easier? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Are we talking about the Nova Prospekt turret battle? I had a different approach..

I took all of the props, stacked them up and made stairs up to the combine spawn room, carried 2 turrets up and just killed all of the combine as they spawned with the AR2.

The other easier way is to back yourself into a corner with all of the turrets and let the combine come to you, but not as fun.

+1 for that. Completely changed the game for me. Shame it's about 10GB.

I set up cinematic mod once way back in the day, mostly because of their uhh... liberal redesign of alyx. Unfortunately it caused my game to crash before the first level. I take it it's in better shape now?

Edit- just looked at the site and obviously it has. Just hope my sig rig can run it

It eats ram, nom nom nom. But I played it with my 8800GTS and it was fine.

That liberal redesign is why I refuse to install it. It makes Alyx look like a cheap whore just like every other female protagonist in gaming these days. Do. Not. Want. and yes I am aware I don't have to use the model, but I don't care. Principle, man.

You can disable custom skins with Cinematic Mod 10. Also, note that if you do use that mod, it changes gameplay. I used it on my first playthrough of Half-Life 2 and episodes, and I died so much because of the difficulty increase.

Yeah, I do this except I set up the turrets at the entrance to cells and wait in the turret cells with the shotgun and just watch the bodies pile up
