    If I have the Emporio HL2, can I still use the Vengeance release? Or what can I do?

    The Vengence update release is made for the "retail" release of HL2.
    I'm not sure if Emporio done a retail yet.

                    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:
    
         * HTTP and non-HTTP 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>\SteamApps\User\Half-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>\SteamApps\User\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2.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.

    I can't figure out how to install the Vengeance HL2 Retail. Help, look in my previous post Hl 2 Retail Burning and help me out! I tried putting in CD5, blah blah and it wouldnt work. Read it! And wait, Singaboiy, if I use that deathmatch patch, will we get detected by valve, if we use valve servers? Are cracked servers and valve servers together? Or will we only be able to see/play cracked servers?

    After installing half life 2 retail , dont go an open up the halflifeinstall.exe YET. first off go to your desktop and start hl2 then you should see Steam open and update itsself. After that, completely exit out of Steam, go back and run the halflifeinstall.exe, in cd Cd5/crack folder , and execute it. I had a problem at first and then i did this and it worked.
