Definately. The game is over 2 years old now, they can hardly expect
Valve to sort them out with a client at this stage. Open-sourcing
Half-Life would be nice, but they still make an awful lot of money
from the game, and the implications it would have for the already
serious cheating situation would be too horrible to contemplate imho.
If you're interested in setting up a HL server let me know, I run a
couple myself for clan training/matches.
I was court-martialled in my absence, and sentenced to death in my absence, so I said they could shoot me in my absence. [Brendan Behan]
