What works

Absolutely EVERYTHING, but apart from one thing...

What does not

You know the Half-Life logo @ the top of main menu? The graphics in that are screwed up.


What was not tested

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING!

And by the way, I also tried cheatzording through the game (what was tested here: using console, submitting console commands + cheats). Everything works here, too.

Additional Comments

One annoying thing: the cursor does not banner off when you play, it flickers during gameplay. But don't worry, that's only annoying, it won't affect the game.
