3. On the bright side Aug 12, 2005, 18:54 andross
 
On the bright side... this could work out well for mod developers.

BTW the article's method for avoiding adverts is easily bypassed by variations in the initial xml handshake data.

News Comments > Valve Wins Cyber Café Suit
8. vivendi is screwed Nov 29, 2004, 22:40 andross
 
Dr Evil:

here's some interesting tidbits, tho I don't understand all the limitations:

II.2. - "Plaintiff (Valve) may recover copyright damages for any infringement as allowed by law."
II.3. - "Plaintiff may recover any general damages for breach of the 2001 Agreement."

Viviendi is somewhat screwed. They pirated Half-Life when they bulk distributed it to cyber-cafe's.

I think some of the limitations would allow Valve out of their Vivendi contract. IANAL but I think that's going to not be settled until after the court case.

35. Make a new Account Oct 7, 2004, 16:03 andross
 
Having already purchased a Half-Life 1 steam pack ($30), but I didn't want to throw that away when I got the Silver pack ($60, which includes the Half-Life 1 steam pack but no discount).

I made another steam account and purchased my HL2 Silver under that... so now I guess I have a steam account for my wife to play at LAN parties.

Sony also insists that your copy of SWG is not transferable to another person. Nice huh?

66. HL2 Mods before HL2? Sep 29, 2004, 13:42 andross
 
Here's a question for anyone in the know:

As long as they release an SDK, then won't we be able to mod for HL2 even before the retail box is released?

When is the SDK being released to us and will we be able to produce and play mods before HL2 hits retail?

Seriously... Dell's support of their ATI powered laptops is CRAP, and ATI doesn't provide mobility drivers to laptop users... they referr you back to your manufacturer!

LAM#!!!
