This is slightly off-topic but....

I was playing HL single player (not played it before) when I had to do a win98 reinstall. Because I'm a bit stupid I clobbered my HL installation too - loosing my saved-games http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif. Anyone know how I can "reconstruct" my position? I think I'd just picked up the gluon gun in the Lamba Core area.

It's a top game, I'd just like to finish it.

You'll probably have to load the appropriate map...

Pull down the console and type in:

map mapname

In the console type:
/sv_cheats 1
/give_weapon WEAPONNAME

*Look in the valve.pak for the map names an keep guessing until you get to about where you were. I use Pak Explorer to look in the pak file.
*Look on www.planethalflife.com (http://www.planethalflife.com) for those weapon names.

Thnks for the suggestions, I have not got my game back to more-or-less the same position.
