The first game I bought from Steam is the "Orange Box". It wasn't my intention to get the game suite I only wanted Team Fortress II actually but because it wasn't on the shelf, so I had to buy the box.
The trouble is every time I reinstall windows, I have to wait to install it from online connection which varies from time to time. It took me 45 minutes to complete just Team Fortress II alone. Is it possible to obtain the download as one executable so that I can keep in on a disc and use it for reinstallation in the future?
45 minutes isn't really that bad from my stand point. I'd love to have that actually. Took me about 4-6 hours to download TF2 just for a guess pass a friend let me use.
I guess you could copy the TF2 folder that is in your steam folder somewhere and put that to disk. Drag and drop that back into steam and it will want to reactivate I believe. But really ... that's just a guess, you can try it though.
