Even though it's a pre-release version it's just the Sierra promo video, it most likely never leaked

I know only one leak. It has some unfinished maps, monsters (from HL1), weapon... It`s around 1,4 gb + 2 map packs (that you should compile yourself).

He is propably talking about HL2 - it was 1.39GB. And there 2 map packs - 1 with uncompiled HL2 maps and 1 with (un?)compiled HL1S and CSS maps.

EDIT: However, if he is talking about HL1 leak anyway, he might be right. If it contains engine source code and uncompiled maps/objects it may be much bigger.

the true is that this demo doesnt have differences for the final product, but if you search in its .pak files, it have inside many models, sounds and textures that didnt appear in the retail game, this beta files were used for some mods like the well-known Sven Coop, and for a future mod (i think it was cancelled) called Quiver (the old project codename for Half Life), that wanted to recreate the beta story seen in the early promotional videos and the book Raising the Bar. If you want to see some supposed beta levels of Half Life you can download Half-Life: Uplink, it is a second demo of Half-Life but in a totally different map that doesnt appear in the final game, it is a short but interesting demostration, you can download from here: http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/f ... ption.html
