I got Half Life 2 to work!
My clue was the 'click' that said it was trying to change resolutions just before the crash. So, since I could change video options before hitting the crash point, I changed the resolution to my desktop's resolution, and voila!



Now, I wonder why I bothered..... FPSs really aren't my favorite. I just do NOT like getting shot at. And, if someone tries to tell me that Oblivion is an FPS - you are out of your mind. I do not have specially placed, constantly respawning guards taking pot shots at me simply because I am there, all the freaking time in Oblivion.

Heh. You aughta try one of the Quake Arena titles.

You don't even have time to worry about getting shot at.

Hehehe, yeah. Of the most severe and exciting kind.

Having you and 14 of your friends running around shooting each other in the ass in a fog shrouded arena during a LANparty at 3am is a total blast!

Yeah, you generally have to piss someone off to get shot at in Oblivion.

Of course you do get assaulted randomly by bandit jerks any time you go for a ride down an actual road.

Very, very true. And critters are everywhere bandits are not. But... there's fast travel that avoids all that after the first time you find a place.

AAAAAND, the Knights of the Nine plug in offers an interesting protection from all woodland critters. This does not seem to include crabs, most unfortunately. And you pretty much have to have a squeaky clean record to use the protection. Thankfully, the plug-in offers a means of 'washing' your rep. LOL Talk about 'all your sins forgiven'.
