About This File

This is a patch for HL2: Update mod to update the game to the latest version of Source engine similar to vanilla HL2, basically this guide but are simplified, you just need to run the installer and choose the steamapps\common\HL2 Update folder and install (overwrite anything). Plus, SDL2 2.26.3 is also included.


- Vulkan is fully supported with no issues

- Gamepad UI is also supported + Community Commentary option added.

- Custom chapter backgrounds/images that matches the one from HL2 Update one.

- Along with other changes from the latest HL2 vanilla are also included aswell.


If you find some bugs aside the one from readme which i can't fix, comment it below, and beside I might be inactive so some bugs might not be fixed.

Also it's highly recommended that you don't download the older version (other than 1.0.3) on the changelogs, they are obsolete and contains lots of bugs, and nonfunctional Gamepad UI, always download latest one, 1.0.3 was the last oldest version that was recommended if you have issues with latest version (in case I release a newer version everytime Valve updated the vanilla game).

Since it's just an updated version of my idea (to make your guide a simple file) you can use the name of my file, it's catchier than "HL2 Update mod - Source 2022 patch (Updated 2023)", and I  deleted my old file anyway to avoid confusion.
