    I don't think this is a good thing. Surely this will be bad for game sales. Dodgy versions of the game will be out soon for sure, provided enough of the source code is there. Damn whoever leaked the code!!!

    I briefly considered finding the code and having a look. Briefly was about 3 milliseconds before my programmer's sympathy kicked in. The HalfLife2 team have put in so much effort to make game, and any good programmer would do everything in his/her power to make that worth it for them. So I hope no posts go up on these forums condoning the use of this source code. If anyone finds out anything about the leak, do the right thing and send the information to Valve, there is an address at www.halflife2.net where you can send it.

    Jawib, whoever posted that message is an idiot. There will be no "dodgy versions" of the game around "for sure". Without the game content, you have no game.

    Besides, Quake's source was leaked too before it was released back in 1997.

    Two threads, same topic. I'll close this one as the other was started first.
    Conversation continues over here:
    Half life 2 source code stolen
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
