I hate to tell you but I was unable to play HL2 or HL2 DM at my lan on
Saturday for what ever reason. If you produce a game that you want to be
played everywhere you have to get rid of any Steam like programs. The fact
that the Devs decided to make BF2 lan compatible from the start speaks
volumes for them. Thanks guys :)
