    I've been playing on bootcamp with a TF2 disc I bought for $9.99

    Will I have to purchase the download for $19.99 to play on mac side today or will they just let me download with the serial code I have from the purchased Windows side disc? Just asking because it wasn't a steam download when I originally purchased on the windows side.

    You're all set to download and play the Mac version when it arrives, you won't be required to purchase it again.

    It's a Valve title that is tied to his Steam account. He'll be able to download it for free via Steam once it's ready.

    I have installed TF2 on 3 different computers now and I bought the orange box and used that for the first computer shortly after it came out.

    The rest have been threw steam. Most recent was about a month ago.

    ok here's some info to help for users that already have TF2 on a different computer. You can copy a few files across massively reducing download time:

    You can find you files here:

    [Mac's volume] /Users/******/Documents/Steam Content
    [Windows volume] /Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps

    Copy the following files to your Mac's Steam Content folder:

    team fortress 2 client content.gcf
    team fortress 2 materials.gcf
    team fortress 2 content.gcf

    If you do not have Portal or Half-Life 2 on your Mac, you'll want to copy these files:

    source sounds.gcf
    source models.gcf
    source materials.gcf
    source 2007 shared sounds.gcf
    source 2007 shared models.gcf
    source 2007 shared materials.gcf

    This should save you a massive amount of time when downloading!! Hope it helps!!
