Steam, Single Player, and Cheats

Postby middletoe » Thu Aug 26, 2010 5:10 pm

I'm interested in playing Half Life 2, but I'm absolute garbage
at anything that requires quick reflexes because of nerve
damage. So I'd need cheats in order to play it.

I found some cheats at cheatcc
but it says "server only" for some of the cheats.
The same at gamefaqs -- it says "server side only" for the god mode cheat.

What does "server side only" mean. Would I be able to use the
cheat if I'm only going to be playing the single player version?

Not sure if this will answer your question, but someone asked a similar question on the Steam forums...

Well now I'm thoroughly confused. How does it apply to games played as single player?
Are you both client and server when you play single player?

Cheats should work fine for single player. I played Half Life 2 with them.

Let us know how it works, middletoe. I've never used cheats with Steam.
