so what would happen to achievements if i spawn say turrets for the big battle with the antlions in ep2 and turn sv_cheats off before they attack ?
does the game/steam still give the achievement cause it checks if sv_cheats is on 0
or would it still see it as sv_cheats 1 ?

If I remember correctly (I haven´t played HL2 in a while), you need to save after you´ve done your cheating and turned sv_cheats off, and then restart the game and load that save for achievements to work again. Remember, the buddha code works without sv_cheats turned on and is a solid alternative to god. And you can edit NPC health too no problem without sv_cheats turned on (and there are two dudes helping in that section, right?) See my post I created on the HL2 message board here titled Easy HL2 editing tricks: www.cheathappens.com/show_board2.asp?headID=122145&titleID=9130 99-100% of all stuff outlined there apply to the episodes as well.
