Updating content... 0%

This Steampipe thing is starting to get to me. To launch a game I have to let it do all this file transfer, which is like letting it update only worse because I can't do anything on Steam in the meantime. Half-Life 2 seems to be stuck at 0% right now and has been for twenty minutes or more now- is this normal?

Now it's fine. It turns out that there was nothing wrong with the file conversion- just the message about the file conversion.

I'm 2.5 hours into converting HL2 (still says 0%), and Steam has barely if at all used any cpu in the last hour (I've seen it hit 3% on task manager; usually it hangs around 1 or 0). At this rate it would have been (and may still be!) faster to remove it and redownload.

I can't find any HL2-specific files with timestamps later than what I presume was the first two minutes of this process.

I wasn't playing any Steam games or doing anything really cpu intense during this process as I was hoping it would finish quickly. Then I found this recent topic...

Edit: funny enough, it seems to let me play HL2 even though the steam client is stuck.

Same thing happened to me. I just got fed-up and ended the Steam process and restarted. Never came back up though.
