Surrender, Freeman!

On a nostalgia kick I de-mothballed the PS2 and picked up a used copy of Half-Life. I was halfway through the game yesterday when I lost power. I was quicksaving frequently--practically every room (wussy, I know). Mystery: The saved game is still there--but it isn't.

I went to restart, and there was no saved game! I go and browse the memory card, and there is a saved game file, just that when I go to restart the game, it can't find one. What gives?

Why does it show the file but not load it in the game? Is it possible to possible to copy the file to another card? Would it read it if copied?

Please! Black Mesa is depending on you!

Your save is probably corrupt. Losing power mid save will do that. I'd just delete the file and start over.

Sounds like your saved file is corrupted. I think you're hosed, and will have to replay the game from the start.

I don't know if you can use the developer console on the PS2 version of Half Life, but if you can, rather than starting over from the beginning, you can use the map console command to manually jump to a level.

List of Half Life map names.

If that works, you may want to use the code "impulse 101" to give yourself some of every weapon, which you'll be missing.
