I have downloaded Half-Life using Steam. But, I am unable to play it due to heavy performance issue. When I click Play Game, Steam asks for Training, Easy, Medium, Hard options. After choosing one, Steam starts local server & launch the gameplay. But, I am unable to play due to heavy lag and low framerate.
Here are requirements for the game:
Minimum: 500 mhz processor, 96mb ram, 16mb video card, Windows XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection
Recommended: 800 mhz processor, 128mb ram, 32mb+ video card, Windows XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection
And, I don't think any of today's PCs don't satisfy the requirement of this 1.5 decade old game.
Anyway, here's my Laptop specs:
CPU: 1.9GHz Intel Core i7 with 8 cores (4 hyperthreaed) - Turbo Boost upto 3.2GHz
RAM: 6GB DDR3
GPU: 1GB ATI Raedon
OS: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
Internet Connection: Yes
How to fix this performance issue?
