When I try to run Half-Life 1 on my 13" 2012 Macbook Air, which runs Windows 8 natively, it crashes immediately with the following message:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: HL.exe Application Version: 220.127.116.11 Application Timestamp: 3fd11900 Fault Module Name: opengl32.dll Fault Module Version: 6.2.9200.16384 Fault Module Timestamp: 5010a91d Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 00047f61 OS Version: 6.2.918.104.22.168.256.48 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: 0627 Additional Information 2: 062795ccd9a7d27934c38fc16044f34d Additional Information 3: 20d0 Additional Information 4: 20d077d1af1dfc006cc3754e64a57308
hl.exe is running in Windows 7 compatibility mode on the native display at lowest resolution. Running in
-windowed mode has the same symptom.
My Macbook Air has an Intel HD 4000 graphics card of which I cannot update the driver without bricking my Windows, so I'm stuck on the current driver. I got it working in the past, but I don't remember how I did it. Maybe I replaced the
opengl32.dll with a modified version, or changed some obscure setting?
