Half Life runs well on my K6-2+ With rage 128, a P3 should run it fine even in Software Mode..

Hi Guys,

I am trying to do some HL1 benchmarks without luck. Even if I record my own it just doesn't play afterwards.

I have 1.0.0.9 GOTY currently but hoping I can try the benchmark from BeginnerGuy but cannot find HL1108.exe. Does anyone have a link?

Super old thread but I used to play Half Life at lan parties ( A lot) at the end of the 90s and everything about this machine should make it run 60fps except for the TNT2 M64, which was never a good card. A overclocked Voodoo will get you there though.

Didn't they remove OpenGL from the original HL/goldsource engine in favor of Directx?
