Q. Can't See the Paintballs
A. Go to Video Settings and switch to OpenGL. If it says your computer cannot support OpenGL, you need to download your most recent video card drivers.
Q. Where Do I Install DPB To?
A. C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\[your email here]\half-life
Note the [your email here] be sure to change that to whatever e-mail you used while registering your account with Steam.
Q. Sound Cutting In and Out
A. Usually pressing Alt + Tab then re-entering the game in your status bar at the bottom of the screen will fix this. If not, updating your drivers never hurts.
Q. How Do I Shoot Fast?
A. There are different methods of shooting fast:
- Bind mouse1 and mouse2 to +attack in console (type "bind mouse1 +attack", etc in console without the quotes). Then alternate pressing both buttons with your pointer and middle finger in a fast motion (it's called "walking" the mouse).
- Bind your scrollwheel up and down to +attack.
- Also walking mouse1 is just as effective.
Q. How Do I Script?
A. Scripting is cheating and is a global bannable offense. This should be avoided.
Q. I installed STEAM but I dont have a half-life folder
A. Login to Steam. Click on the Games tab. Right click on Half-life and click Launch Game. Play the game for like around 5 minutes or so. Leave game. Look in SteamApps folder...Now you will have a folder with a bunch of letters and numbers like 324u902u34-324324324. Click that, inside you will find your Half-life folder. Put your DPB folder inside of the HL one.
Now you have teh most best game in the world!!!!!!!.....half-life.
Q: When is 2.2 coming out?
A. Soon, but a watched pot never boils.
Q: What's the difference between a skin and a model?
A. A Model is just that, a model. You can basically model anything you'd like, in DPB's case there is a player model and several marker models. Depending on the map there could also be models present on the map but we'll leave that out for now. If you look in DPB's model/skin forum you'll see many 'naked' models that have not yet been skinned. These are usually just rendered, you can tell because there is no color on the render. A skin is basically what goes over the model. A skin does not change the shape of the model but a skinner can often times apply fake 'shadows' to make the appearance of milling etc.
Q: Where can I get Halflife?
A. If you're looking to buy a copy of half-life for steam, you should read this first.
Verify that you are buying an unopened copy of half-life, as a used copy could well have had it's cd key disseminated on the internet.
Half-Life Blue Shift, if you can find it, is normally much cheaper than any of the other half-life games, and it's cd keys work for steam just like any other.
is a great place to start, and i've had great luck with amazon in the past: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...tware&n=507846
