Will beta games and beta games save's transfer to the original game at end of beta?
If I install HL2 (beta) now, will I have to start over when the non-beta is released? Or vill it update and "convert" to the stable?

I'm going to water hazard a guess and say they will.

Don't worry. Saves are automatically uploaded to the Steam Cloud service.

left for dead 2 beta and team fortress 2 beta have different app id numbers so for those two I'd hazard an educated guess and say no...

the ones that don't have a separate beta like portal and half life 2 will more than likely carry over your saves and achievements

Like RandomWeeJ says, there's a diiference between an actual beta version of the game, like L4D2 beta and TF beta, and a beta version of a game that's being ported, indicated as beta like this: (beta)

There are 2 different types of beta, single player betas are for solely for linux and one would hope that save games will be transfered over, however their multiplayer betas for tf2 and l4d2 are betas for different mechanics and such and is completely different install.

It has nothing to do with single or multiplayer. See DoD:S, HL2:dm or CS:S.

i said the multiplayer for tf2 and l4d2, not css or hl2dm

Hey, Just beware. I had a problem with this playing Half-Life 1, and lost a ton of progress. It turned out that this is a known issue with SteamCloud that is still unresolved.

[Half-Life] SteamCloud failing to sync saves (<-- mine)

Saved games dont sync (<-- current tracking)

It looks like someone reported that it's working now, with Steam beta. I'm personally waiting for proof that it works out of beta before I start Half-Life over again.
