Strange Portal update.
So recently while at my grandparents house (who don't have internet) I thought "Why don't I play Portal, for old times sake". So I tried starting it up and a notification came up saying we want to update this game to a more efficient version (Mind you this was only last week and it has never come up before then!). So when I got home I downloaded the update which was a HUGE 2.3Gb (That's big on my internet speed XD) and started playing, but absolutely NOTHING was different.
Can't find any patch notes or anything.
If anyone knows what this is about please reply!

Lots of valve games are doing it, its converting it to steampipe, i think it makes it compatible with linux but im not sure.

steampipe makes for faster downloads. At least that is what it is supposed to do.

Steampipe is some bullcrap! I wish I could play Portal without the damn buggy steam pipe! I miss the old version of portal without the damn steam pipe!!!

I'm getting the vibe that you don't like Steampipe... XD

Since steampipe was introduced, hl2 and portal are having problems like forcing Directx 8 even on a high-end card, and downloading the same update everytime you log on steam
steampipe was a good idea..but on this cases, it's worse than it was before
I mean..what is the point of move old games like this to steampipe?
Isn't like they need a 2-sec faster loading time..
Useless.

steampipe causes garrys mod to crash loads

From what i've seen..this crash on load porblem wasn't caused by Garry using themida to virtualize Garry's Mod process?

I realised it did it for a lot of Half life games, but nothing seems different either
