Orange Box PC / activation on mac

Orange Box pack (contains Half Life 2, episodes 1 & 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2) PC version (isn’t available as box for mac) allows to activate the games through Steam on OSX : we have to click to Add Game (or menu Activate a game) from Steam application (not from internet site). Then Steam downloads the files when needed (some of these are different on mac and PC).

Performance using the mac version is finally better on mac mini (and no slowdown after having played one hour, and no over-heating) than with using CrossOver. Rendering quality (water and reflections) is stunning, considering the game was out late 2004.
