As Bucky point out: Wrong thread, but:
How about a patch that removes the long load times for a dumb 3d load screen?
How about a patch for removing dumb internet connection for single player games?
Going straight to the load screen (w/o loading up the 3d intro screen) would be cool for HL2...
As far as internet connection for SP? I've had Steam online ONE TIME since Tuesday (and that was only because I was checking email when I fired Steam up to play - I was in no way REQUIRED), and have played HL2 a number of times in offline mode.http://www.placeboworld.co.uk
