    OMG this add-on is just jaw dropping...

    http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/2005/...screens/1.html


    check out the insane system requirements:

    2.4ghz cpu

    1 gig of ram

    nvidia 6800 or x800 if u want smooth game play, anything less gets choppy on higher resolutions


    My friend has a amd athlon 64 3200+, 1 GB ram, and Nvidia 6800GT. He gets around 40 fps at 1280 by 1024 with high details, so that should give you an idea as to how power hungry the game is

    I played the game at a friend's house, and it looked absolutely stunning... I love source engine, it's so realistic. If fact, real life graphics suck, so life shud run on source engine

    Yes the HDR does look amazing but I won't bother dling it even though I have Steam and acess to it. I hear that the new Counter Strike Source maps will include HDR.

    Yea dude, sounds really cool.

    Btw, when are those damn updates supposed to be released? They are supposed to be released today but I have a feeling that they won't be.

    my comp can run it yay so do i just dl using steam or do i have to pay for it (in that case...torrentspy?)

    edit: hmmm when i click install in steam, it says itll only let me download a demo? i thought it was a full version, and it says that i dont meet the system requirements (wtf):

    Recommended:

    CPU: 2.9 Ghz
    RAM: 1GB
    Video Card: DirectX 9 Capable

    Your System (mine):

    CPU: 2.4 Ghz (AMD)
    RAM: 2GB
    Video Card: ATI x800

    perhaps a glitch, because i have a 3800+ but it shows up as a 2.4 ghz (which it is) they'll prob. fix that soon enough, and it also says this:

    Lost Coast is a free update for owners of Half-Life 2 which has been built to showcase the latest in real-time graphics, including HighDynamic Range lighting. As such, it has unusually high system requirements.

    so my question is, is it only a demo or is there a full version out there?
