Every Half-Life Mod Broken In Recent Steam Update

On February 15th, the update seemed innocuous enough. Three listed changes, none of them particularly remarkable. However, behind the scenes, Valve changed the file directory path for the original Half-Life from username/Half-Life to common/Half-Life. “We have been seeing rendering problems and gameplay problems,” said ModDB. “We’re not sure if we can release a hotfix for these problems, since it’s a lot of changes made to the engine that causes it.” The reason for the change is unclear, and its effects are clearly far more serious than intended. With luck, Valve will revert this change. Stay tuned.
