    Q:I got Error about tier_0.dll
    A:Ignore that press ok ant wait until game load.
    Q:Buggy doesn't have gaus gun?
    A:Yeah i think is name mishmash witch car from EP2 [3 cars in Ep2 don't have guns]
    Q:In citadel on d3_citadel_03.bsp I have all guns and normal gravity gun and i cannot move through forcefield.
    A:You need to use noclip to move through forcefield and you need to complete this map using normal weapons. On next map (d3_citadel_04.bsp) you will have only super gravity gun.
    Q:when I enter final teleport chamber nothing happens!
    A:There must be a broken script. In this moment you cannot finish game.
    Q:I got stuck on d3_c17_07.bsp when Dog should lift a combine wall but he is not moving.
    A:You need to use noclip here.
    Q:Striders move different than in normal HL2 why?
    A:This bug is due to maps don't have nodes and game makes every time when map is loaded. Striders needs nodes to move.
    Q:I got when vourdigant want to charge my suit he is not moving!
    A:Ohh You need to noclip here
