Half-Life Forum  /  Any way to speedrun on Linux?

I was wondering if there was a way to speedrun this game on linux? Because the 2005 and gldsrc packages are windows only i am unable to use them even with wine or proton, i know that Bunnymod is compatible with linux though so i was wondering if there was a way to speedrun on linux


Hello, the only native way to speedrun Half-Life the base game is to speedrun the "Steam version with the Bunnyhop cap" category: https://www.speedrun.com/hl1#Steam

If you want to speedrun WON version that doesn't have the Bhopcap, you unfortunately have to use Wine/Proton and run the Windows version of the game, because the Linux native version was only made in 2013, long after the bhopcap was in place for several years.

There's also a Steam without bhop cap category in Category extensions: https://www.speedrun.com/hl1ce#Steam_wo_Bhop_Cap
