File for HL2

I’m having trouble finding the file gameinfo.txt for the HL2 game I’ve tried using the same type of file from the other games but it just loads up the main menu and leaves the start new game button disabled.

So if anyone has a gameinfo.txt or knows where to get one I would like to know where and how I can get it

Why do you need gameinfo.txt?

It’s supposed to be generated the first time you start the game…

You need to go and buy HL2 from Steam to play it.

There’s no reason at all this would happen unless you’re running a pirated version.
