V e n g e a n c E P r e s e n t S Half-Life 2: Deathmatch Addon (c) Valve/Sierra Release Date : 12-02-2004 Protection : SecuROM/Steam File Count : 04x05mb Game Genre : Shooters Release Notes: Only to be used after updating to protocol v7. Protocol v7 adds the ability to install Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. (without protocol v7 update installed, you CANNOT install HL2: Deathmatch) Protocol v7 also updates the following: * **** and non-**** map auto downloading functionality * Various tweaks and fixes Now for the good stuff. This update also features our latest emulator, Vengeance Steam Emulator v2.0. Why the jump from v1.10 to v2.0? Simple, we have now added ability to play online on ANY servers, legit or cracked. We have also allowed the emulator to use local file if wanted, instead of the GCF's, to allow for game modding. This is only for advanced users so, at your own risk, play around with your GCF's and the steamemu.ini :) Install Notes (Please follow these instructions IN ORDER) 1. Unpack the release with WinRAR or equivalent 2. Run hl2dminstaller.exe to copy over the new GCF and install needed game files. 4. *OPTIONAL STEP TO ENABLE ONLINE PLAY ON -ANY- SERVERS* *CRACKED SERVERS STILL FUNCTIONAL WITHOUT THIS STEP* For those people who wish to play online on ANY servers, legit or cracked, you must first run STEAM from your start menu: Start -> Programs -> Valve -> Steam -> Steam Click "Create a new account..." and follow the on-screen steps to do so. You MUST create a NEW account which does NOT have any games subscribed. Once you have created your account, minimize STEAM to the system tray, while REMAINING LOGGED IN. Then, go to "<install directory>SteamAppsUserHalf-Life 2 Deathmatch", in explorer, open the file "steamemu.ini". Here you will see a section for enabling online play: ; Enable online Steam play ; This enables the ability to play Half-Life 2: Deathmatch and Counter-Strike: Source on any server. ; Log in to the Valve Steam client with a valid steam account (no subscriptions to games needed) ; And enter the Steam information here ; For example: ; SteamOnline=1 ; SteamUser=MySteamUser ; SteamPassword=MySteamPassword SteamOnline=0 SteamUser= SteamPassword= First, change "SteamOnline=0" to "SteamOnline=1". Second, since you have a new account now, use your new Username and Password and write them into the steamemu.ini file and SAVE. *** EXAMPLE ************************************************** Your new username is "BOB" and your password is "dolomite". Your .ini file should look like the following to play online: ; SteamOnline=1 ; SteamUser=MySteamUser ; SteamPassword=MySteamPassword SteamOnline=1 SteamUser=BOB SteamPassword=dolomite ************************************************************** *** REMINDER ************************************************* Each time you want to play online on LEGIT SERVERS, you MUST have STEAM running and you MUST be logged into the same account as found in the steamemu.ini file! Mind you, this is the same thing as running steamengine.exe from the EMPORiO release and the same information is exchanged. Otherwise, if you ONLY want to play on cracked servers, you DO NOT need STEAM running at all. ************************************************************** 5. --- Half-Life 2: Deathmatch --- To play Half-Life 2 double click the "Half-Life 2 Deathmatch" shortcut found on your desktop. (HL2: DM is ONLY functional if you are in ONLINE mode) (Legit server play only if step 4 is completed) (Cracked servers functional with or without step 4) *** SHORTCUT NOTICE ******************************************* Our installers will make shortcuts ONLY to the REAL location where windows believes the desktop is. If you have played around with the desktop using TweakUI or other programs, you may not see the shortcuts on your "desktop" which is NOT where windows thinks the desktop actually is. So, follow these instructions to make your own shortcut: For Half-Life 2 Deathmatch: "<install dir>SteamAppsUserHalf-Life 2 Deathmatchhl2.exe" -steam -game hl2mp <install dir> being wherever you installed the game obviously. *** OFFLINE / ONLINE MODE ************************************* --- ONLINE --- Double click the file "Steam Online.reg" to put the game in ONLINE mode. Make sure your internet connection is active and the needed ports to play CS: Source are open (or turn firewalls off). --- OFFLINE --- Double click the file "Steam Offline.reg" to put the game in OFFLINE mode. --------------------------------------------------------------- The game MUST be in ONLINE mode to play Half-Life 2 Deathmatch on cracked servers, or to host a cracked server, and you obviously must be connected to the internet. Same for, legit servers. OFFLINE mode is for those who do not have a constant internet connection or for those who do not want any contact with VALVE servers and want to play Half-Life 2. Remember that OFFLINE mode will disable HL2: Deathmatch online capabilities. So if you want to play online, follow the instructions above to enable ONLINE mode. Remember, STEAM only must be logged in and running if you wish to play HL2: DM on legit servers. Otherwise, you do not need STEAM to be on at all. *************************************************************** Contacting Vengeance: We are always looking for talented people to help fill our ranks.
