    I dont have a free copy of Portal, but does anyone know if this gives people access to the SDK Base?

    If it does, it would mean a great thing for Source mods!

    It will, since it's a source game.

    It does not include the SDK, nor the SDK base.

    It's the same as the free HL2: DM and Lost Coast offer

    Sooo... If you download portal now for free you can't map for it unless you buy another source game?

    No, you wont be able to get it for free after 24. You will be allowed to play if you have already DLd. What about this do people not get.

    Yeah. Until the 24th you can 'buy' it for $0, and it will be forever attached to your account. After then it will go back to $20 or whatever it normally is.

    I BELIEVE they're basically saying "Here it is for free but, if you want to pay for it because you love it so much, we're totally cool with that. :3"

    The part they dont get is that in the past Valve have done several TF2 weekends, where everyone could DL and play the game, but after 3 days it stops working.

    Thus when you offer something FREE, but put an end date on the offer, they think it will stop working on the end date. They are having a hard time grasping that a very popular, albeit aging, game is simply -FREE-. (for a limited time)
