[Synergy] 10-player Co-op Half-Life 2! no current game in progress

edited December 2011 in Games and Technology
Do you like Half-Life 2?

Do you have friends?

Do you want to play Half-Life 2 with your friends?

then Synergy is right for you!

we've done big PA games before:
Spoiler:

but we never had a dedicated thread to center all synergy-based co-op activity before. this here's where we'll hammer out times and get our crowbars on.

what you will need:

Synergy

Half-Life 2

you may want to install the various episodes and whatnot, depending on if we finish the main game.

ALSO: after installing HL2, you'll need to boot up HL2 and then exit it in order for synergy to properly recognize the game files. this step is IMPORTANT.

    Downloading Synergy. Trying to add CHB is like trying to save a Batarian in ME2.

    IMPOSSIBLE.

    Oh hey. Co-op HL2? Maybe that'll help me finish episode 2 eventually.

    Now I have to go re-download Half life 2.

    i got that when i tried to add you from your page in firefox. it probably has to do with not being logged into the steam community website.

    then i added you through steam and it worked fine.

    remember: when curly says jump, you say how high.

    Then you turn no-clip on and use it to jump, like, 30 feet.

    Because why not?

    That's what I tried. It told me the server wasn't responding. Then again, I was using the Steam overlay, not the actual server browser on account of not having CHB as a Steam friend.
