Problem with Half-Life 1 Game view on Windows 8 Pro

Hello folks,

i have tested Steam Half-Life on Windows 8 Pro but it doesn't happen because display driver got crazy like our game got full-light .

How do i fix same problem of normal lights/shadows.

Before i am using Windows 7 Pro and Game view of Half-Life shows normal.

Or i have forgotten for correct setting by AMD Radeon HD Driver.
Did you use same Half-Life under Windows 8 Pro? But it gets too light. What does it happen?

Thanks for support!

or redownloading it so the DX9 library needs are taken care of.

If he's talking about the GoldSrc version of it, updating DirectX would be pointless because it runs on either software mode, OpenGL 1 or DirectX 7's DirectDraw (basic functionality included on every copy of Windows since Windows 2000 was released 14 years ago).

I have found HL and related games to run extremely bad on my rig under both Windows Vista, 7, 2008 R2 and 8 suffering from low fps (30 and below) and stutters here and there, thankfully I own the Source version of HL1 that I can more than recommend for anyone with a modern machine, the game runs much smoother and since it's just a copy paste, on my experience the game behaves the same. I think HL's build was just left outdated/untweaked because CS works fine, but i'm not an expert

The old engine was really designed for OpenGL. DX doesn't work so well, never has. You can't even run your view in Right handed mode...

If you are running a Vid card with little or no OpenGL support, HL is not going to work very well at all.

DX is not just for video. There are many DX addins, as you see when installing many many games, that aren't present by default with the OS.
