    Screen size problems

    I bought HL1 for my friend so he can play this, but the screen is too big for him to change options, even to make screen smaller! Could need some help on how to make screen of game smaller to fit his monitor without being able to access options in game! thanks

    Is he playing with Steam or the old WON install?

    Question Re: Screen size problems

    Yes, he plays it off steam. I wonder if he messed up during set up, but is there any way without uninstalling and reinstalling it, to change the screen size of the game without access to its options in game?

    Add -width 800 -height 600 to the command line. (My Games list -> Rightclick on SC -> Properties -> Set launch options)
    Start the game once, close it, remove -width 800 -height 600 and restart the game and correctly adjust resolution.

    If that does not work you can try the command line option of -startwindowed
