HD Remake (much better): http://youtu.be/bG7sfXitotA

I lowered the graphical quality of Half-Life 2 by a huge amount by creating a custom configuration file, and this is the result. I'm sorry for jumping around too much. Also, I forgot to disable vertical sync, so the whole time the game was running at a solid 60. I have no idea what the capabilities where beyond that if I had removed the cap.

The settings used were the following. Put them into a config file to see the effects:

mat_dxlevel 60
cl_ragdoll_collide 0
sv_cheats 1
mat_picmip 4
r_WaterDrawReflection 0
r_WaterDrawRefraction 0
mat_wateroverlaysize 8
r_lod 5
mat_fullbright 1
mat_diffuse 5
mat_bumpmap 0
r_shadows 0
mat_fullbright 1
mat_forceaniso 0
mat_forcehardwaresync 0
mat_reducefillrate 0
mat_mipmaptextures 0
mat_filtertextures 0
mat_bloom 0
mat_envmapsize 32
mat_envmapgasize 8
mat_antialiasing 0
cl_phys_props_enable 0
mat_filterlightmaps 0
mat_showlowresimage 1

I compiled that list together from various videos I found, as well as from messing around with all of the commands beginning with "mat_". Some of the strange effects you see are probably easily removed with no performance impact, so if you find anything, comment about it.
