    I bought Half Life on Steam about a month ago, and it froze at every loading screen unless I wasn't holding any weapons or the crowbar. Is was really just a minor inconvenience really, seeing as how you always either have no weapons or at least the crowbar. I managed to beat the game like this but now I bought Blue Shift (and Opposing Force, but that doesn't have this problem) last Sunday. In Blue Shift, you get the pistol before the crowbar, unless I've missed something. So now I can't advance past the map where you first get the pistol from the firing range because it won't load the next map.

    I've googled this problem but it didn't help. It said it was a problem running on Vista and it works if run in compatobility mode, but that didn't work either.

    My question is, is there any way of getting the crowbar with a console command, or any way to fix this? I've tried sv_cheats 1 and then impulse 101 but that didn't work.

    Yeah, you do get the pistol before the crowbar in Blueshift. And sv_cheats does not work on the GoldSrc engine to my knowlage, I think it has a completely different scripting language.

    You have to enter sv_cheats 1 and then load a save for cheats to be enabled.

    Enter sv_cheats 1, load a save, and then enter "give weapon_crowbar"
