Why is Portal more than double on my Mac than on my PC???? When every Steamgame is so big space won't be enough!?

I thought Portal was only that small on the PC when the Source engine and all the plumbing was already downloaded with other games. Could be wrong, totally wrong.

You are not wrong, portal, like many other games share GCF packages from other valve games.

Give it a bit of time. Started in the teens for me but after 10 minutes jumped to full speed at 2.5MB

You know how when you install a source game, then install another, it jumps to about 50% or higher?

Yea, that's because they share the packages.

If you have other source engine games, it won't add the size of the engine. because on mac, you can't have other source engine games, it will add the source engine size to portal
