    Default Half-Life for PS2 -- Save Data?

    Would anyone happen to have a PS2 memory card with a save file for Half-Life on it?

    My save file got corrupted right around the end of the "Apprehension" chapter. I've already decided I'm not starting over from scratch, it's too time-consuming and I've got too many other games I want to play. But I thought I'd ask and see if anyone had a memory card I could borrow?

    I'll pay shipping both ways of course, and a little something extra for your trouble if you'd like. I'll even send you my card if you'd feel more comfortable doing it that way. Prefer to do a straight copy through the PS2 though, as I've read horror stories about 3rd party devices wiping cards clean.

    Thanks in advance.

    Wait, you can do that? Softmod a Ps2 to use a USB stick? I thought you had to use one of those cheat devices...

    Hmmm... IIRC, you do need an AR Max, but you can get one cheap and easy.

    Here's a quick guide:

    I softmodded my fat ps2 and it works fine.

    I have a Codebreaker somewhere but it doesn't recognize my only USB drive thing. Been trying to find a smaller one somewhere (mine's 512MB) but nobody sells any around here for cheap. People actually SELL the softmod down here in Mexico but I refuse to pay anyone money for this. Blargh.

    My PS2's pretty new anyway, that guide will likely not work.

    Is it a fat one or a slim one? I think that it works for all fat ones.

    Mine is one of the GT3 PS2 and it worked great, but it's supposed to work on later ones too.

    I believe there are passwords you can use to unlock levels in Half-Life on the PS2 without nonsense like modding your console.

    I checked GameFAQs, the only passwords listed there were to unlock the Decay and bonus Vortigaunt levels.

    I could swear there was a code to open up all levels. I don't have my PS2 hooked up at the moment to check, but give the code listed at GameFaqs for opening up bonus levels a try, it's not out of the question that it would unlock each chapter.

    Triangle, Square, Left, Right, Circle, X, Up, Down at the cheat menu.

    Don't forget that an (apparently) extremely-accurate port of Decay was made available for the PC some time ago.
