    Post :banghead: HELP! FAILED TO CONTACT GAME SERVER ON OWN SERVER :banghead:

    This is a really annoying bug. If I turn LAN off, the game will load then quickly turn back to the main menu, and if I turn LAN on, it will load, then show the screen for a split second before it then loads for while, then gives me the message, "Failed to contact game server." If I try to join someone, the game will then infinetly load, on my brother's screen saying I'm leaving and coming back repeatedly.

    HELP!

    UPDATE: The game works now! But most of the sounds are missing or out of place (i.e. When I shoot a human, it sometimes makes a bulletproof sound, like G-Man) some and I can't die from NPCs. Some NPCs aren't in their animations. It still takes me to the title screen when it's non-LAN though. It would really help if anyone were to help me!

    the sound error is due most likely to starting a singleplayer game and then joining/ starting your server

    to fix this you must exit the game after running singleplayer mode before starting a multiplayer map

    That isn't just the most likely cause, it's the exact cause. Never start a local game with the "map" command unless you need GL wireframes.

    I take it you are using the steam version of half life?
    I noticed you don't have a steam popup ingame and the half-life.rar file on your desktop

    It's definitely not the Steam version, it doesn't even show the "preparing to launch..." window.

    You are not running the Steam version of Half-Life, these bugs/glitches are expected on a Non-Steam installation. You're on your own with this unless you get a original copy of Half-Life or wait for the Steam release of Sven Co-op
