Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Half-Life 2 is a 2004 first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve. It is the sequel to 1998's Half-Life. Like the original, it combines shooting, puzzles, and storytelling, and adds features such as vehicles and physics-based gameplay. Players control Gordon Freeman, who fights the alien Combine with allies including resistance fighter Alyx Vance, using weapons such as the object-manipulating gravity gun.

The game was created using Valve's Source engine, which was developed at the same time. Development lasted five years and cost US$40 million. Valve president Gabe Newell set his team the goal of redefining the FPS genre, focusing on advanced physics systems and non-player characters. Valve announced Half-Life 2 at E3 2003 and released it through its new distribution service Steam after delaying it by over a year. A year before release, a hacker stole an unfinished version and leaked it online.

Half-Life 2 was released on November 16th, 2004 and received universal acclaim for its advanced physics, animation, sound, AI, graphics, and narrative. It won 39 Game of the Year awards, and has been cited as one of the greatest games of all time. By 2011, it had sold 12 million copies. It was followed by a free extra level, Lost Coast (2004), and the episodic sequels Episode One (2006) and Episode Two (2007). A prequel, Half-Life: Alyx, was released in 2020.

Notes
These are the native Mac Ports of the Half-Life 2 game series published by Valve, ripped from the Steam resource files and wrapped into nice little standalone Application bundles for your convenience.
Included are the original Half-Life 2, it's expansions Episode One and Episode Two as well as the Puzzle game Portal.

You need to follow two simple rules if you want these games to function flawlessly:
1. Don't rename the Half-Life 2.app
2. Leave all apps inside the same folder - don't copy them to different locations.

Known Issues:
Audio can be choppy sometimes - try disabling Anialiasing and VSYNC if this should happen.
There are various other reported issues mostly from 10.5 users such as scripted events not being triggered properly or oversaturated water/breencast graphics. 10.6 is recommended for best exprience of these games.
Oh yea, and achievements do not work because this is a Steam rip.

Compatibility
Architecture: x86 (Intel:Mac)

Intel Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 or later

Definitely was not expecting this version to show up on the Garden any time soon.
Anyways, Mac port released in 2010.

Tested today for about 30 minutes on an iMac with Mac OS 10.14.6 Mojave : it works very well, audio and video.
Many thanks for the upload.

Will try to upload that tomorrow if I can... And would test the game later also, if possible... Smile

[EDIT] Finally, fogWraith was faster than me, never mind... Wink I've played Half-Life 20 years ago, but only in multiplayer deathmatches (not on a Mac of course). So, it will be a real pleasure to rediscover it on my own Mac. Smile
Thanks for your awesome contributions to the Garden, thedoctor45.

Would be cool if someone else could upload the files from the external link directly to the garden since my upload bandwidth is severely limited atm...
