Cant believe no one has mentioned it...but it's now available for preload on Steam!
Wasn't this on frontpage? And people have been talking about it on IRC for the past week.
So it is
Also what happens for ppl that don't buy HL2 .. can they delete the HL2 pre-cache? Also what size is the cache?
You don't have to pre-load HL2 if you don't want it
Don't know how accurate it is but this is posted on the Steam forum
anyone know how it's gonna be activated? i've got my free copy coupon thing with my graphics card...do i still have to send that off or can i just download it with steam then use that to activate it? if i send it off it says 'allow 4-6 weeks for delivery'...there's no way i'm doing that.
I've been pre-loading it. It's a little over 1 gig so far. One gig or so to go apparently.
All done dowloading apparently!
The first download was about 500 megs compressed and cached at about 1.1 gigs.
This second preload cached at about 900 megs, but its audio so most likely didn't compress very well.
download and install steam and register the voucher through steam...the product will preload and valve will activate it when it is ready...there are posts on the steampowered.com website forums that go through this but can't find it atm...hope this helped
The coupon, when you enter the code, will also let you play Counter-strike: Source beta, which is even more files you would have needed for HL2
