I ran into the same problem as I had encountered in Half-Life version 188.8.131.52 and left a response to in comments, however this time the same dll override did not work and I have had no success using the keyboard in conjunction with this game. Any help would be great.
P.S. I've noticed this game is posted twice, once under half-life 2 and once under Half-Life: Source. I would prefer the "Source" posting, as that is where I looked first, but if the same posts would be recognized under both locations, it would be of assistance.
Crashing after same time of playing

HL2:deathmatch works nice and runs well, but on server with many plaers it crashes in 10 seconds. With local server it just dont crash. On server with 1-2 I can play longer, but it still crashes randomly on some action, never when waiting. Example, shoothing with magnum, shooting barrel, granade...
I have this problem only in hl2:deathmatc normal hl2, episodes, portal, css and tf2 works well.

I would like to verify that the MSI installer works without any tweaks.
I got a promotional dvd from a LANparty which included 'licenses' for HL2, HL2DM and CSS.
Steam from the dvd was quite outdated, so i installed from the steampowered.com website. Made an account, put in my license key.
Steam wanted to download the whole game. I canceled it. Inserted the dvd and when into the hl2 folder and ran the setup.exe. All went smoothly. I ran steam - it needed to update but it saved upwards of 80% of the download.
