Can I Run Black Mesa?

Most sites recommend downloading some program from them into your computer. Don’t try it. Especially with the advent of Bitcoin seeking and webcam spying ransomware on the Internet nowadays, it is recommended you don’t make that mistake since this info is something you can find with some simple digging and common sense.


Here is how to check your system Specs without downloading malware from the Internet

Find specs for all Windows versions: 1. Click the Windows Logo button on your keypad + R key. In the small little window that appears titled "Run", type "msinfo32" and hit the enter key. A window will appear showing you detailed info on your System specifications.

    Alternative steps:

    Windows 10 specs:
  • Step 1. Open Windows Explorer, locate “This PC”.
  • Step 2. Right-click “This PC” icon and select the “Properties” option.

  • Windows 8 specs:
  • Processor, memory and operating system: Click the Windows Start Button > Settings Tile > PC and Devices > PC Info.
  • OR
  • Step 1. Click the Windows Start Button > search for “System” in the search bar.
  • Step 2. From the drop-down results, select and click the “System” result.
  • How to see the Graphics Card: Click the Windows Start Button > Settings Tile > Control Panel (bottom left) > Devices and Printers > Device Manager > Display Adapters. That's it.

  • Windows 7 specs:
  • Step 1. Right-click the “Computer” icon to open the menu > Select the “Properties” option.
  • This last instruction also works for Windows Vista and XP.

  • As you can see there was no need to download computer malware to your system.

Recommendations: It is recommended you have double the RAM recommended by the above and Game makers above. The ROM should also be less than 5% of the Available Space on your computer or a maximum 15%.

Reviews

“This is Half-Life updated just enough to make it palatable for contemporary tastes, but not so much as to deviate from the original vision.”
YES – Kotaku

“Black Mesa Source winds up being exactly what it always promised to be – a modernised, faithful recreation of a deservedly landmark first-person shooter.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“It's a brilliant tribute to one of the greatest videogames ever made, and it's also a good game in its own right.”
