OS X Problem with Half Life

    I'm having a problem with HL (I know it's hard to believe but I'm playing it for the first time ever). I've been going through the Black Mesa training, and have gotten to the part where you get on the train and hit the use key to travel forward into a dark tunnel.

    The lady's voice says I've passed my training course, but the screen goes black , I can't move, and the game goes back to the main start menu screen.

    What gives? WTH am I doing wrong?

    I think that means you finished the tutorial. It's been a while but I'm pretty sure the main game and the tutorial are separate though.

    Yup, you were right.

    Damn, this is a creepy game.

    For anybody else who still hasn't played Half Life 1, it's mere two quid on the steam right now.:)

    I was wondering, is it possible to put Opposing Force and Blue Shift into the Mac version of Half Life and switch between them in the menu?

    Yeah it still sends shivers down my spine in 2013! :D

    don't forget that Black Mesa (the user-made free remake of Half Life with HL2 graphics) is available now - it's great. http://www.blackmesasource.com/

    No Mac version.

    There is an unofficial Cider port to be found on the web. Works quite well on OS X.
