Valve Steampipe Conversions

The Team Fortress 2 blog has word that the Team Fortress 2 Steampipe conversion is complete, and the next time users log into the teamplay shooter their installation of the game will be converted, something that could be a lengthy process even on fast machines. They note that this is a one-time procedure, after which the game will operate and update more efficiently. This is a process all Valve's source engine games are undergoing, which will result in these games no longer sharing any code. For server operators, there is no automated conversion process, so the game will have to be reinstalled, but the good news is that server installations are now much smaller, as they no longer include textures and audio data. This FAQ has answers to burning questions about this and discusses known issues.
