Brief Bio
ive been playing hl2 since i bought the orange box on release... from then ive been "attempting" to create a hl2 map called "clone" however with zero mapping knowledge im picking it up as i go along i also run a graphic card information website called videocardtsar ...which has been going for around 14 months.. and this was born out of the hundreds of messages i got via yahoo answers regarding pc hardware
