Thats quite simple to work out.

The game is split up into a number of different levels, depending on how big a level is and what you have picked up during that level added with how far in you are determines the save size.

The start of a new sector the save file is always small and gets progressively larger untill you reach the next level where it begins and repeats.

I've played it through ages ago on the PC, so I'm just looking to have fun with it. Plus, my save files have already screwed me over twice :twisted:, so I want to pick up around where I left off.

Hey I am so suprised this isnt locked, not that im complaining, i also have "obtained" the DC Version of Half-Life, wich also includes Blue Shift as a added bonus.. And the fact that this discussion is kinda limited due to the fact you can not get this game through legal mean (at least not of any i know of). Well as for my observations, the pC version is way better, and less trouble to get, shaper graphics, mor eoptions, you dont have to mess around with shifting the controls like you do in the DC version, and HL on DC is a little too dark, at times even pitch black... go buy the PC version... same yourself sum trouble.

Sharper graphics on the PC version? The DC version has highly superior models and textures (unless you have the high-def pack). Granted the resolution doesn't go as high and if you're playing on a TV there is plenty of room for interference.

HLDC supports the keyboard and mouse so you can avoid all the shifting if you're willing shell out a few bucks.

I agree with the darkness thing though. It was nearly impossible to see in some areas.

That's the lamest reason to getting Half-Life for Dreamcast and you are lower that dirt. :angryfire: I own the PC version and got the DC version out of curiousity. Besides the PC version has multiplayer and mods.
