i dont get why you have to install steam if you just want to play half life 2
i would be playing it now if it wasnt for that shitty program you cant aviod installing while installing hl2
plus if you are on 56k and just want to play hl2 your forced to donwload the css updates



Your not forced to download updates.


You can disable the option to keep games automaticly up to date.


but you will have to update CSS if you decide to play it..

Yeah, that's what he's getting at. When I just had CS, I had to wait a couple of hours before I could play it, as it needed to download a 300 MB update and at home we still had dialup. Now had they just made patches I could have downloaded it via my laptop at uni. CS was installed on my home computer, the laptop doesn't have wonderful specs.

No, hes bitching that he has auto-update on, and that it downloads CSS updates when he just wants to play HL2


According to his post he has no interest in playing CSS, which is why he is bitchy about it being updated, and he has failed to notice he can disable auto-updates.

Hmm I thought he mentioned a different story at some point in time to me, but yeah, luckily you can disable the auto-update.
