    You mean the code? What sharing? If you mean share Orange Box with your other friends with Steam then IIRC you can only use that serial on one account. (Where did you buy it? [​IMG])

    Sharing?? its STEAM

    you bought a licence key... not the game data itself remember the eula?
    TF2 has guest passes which suck but they are something
    and there is cracking the game which only works on cracked servers and you can't auto update and you would probably never be able to play together.

    Just give them your steam account details, everyone I know does that. But you really need to trust the people you are sharing the details with as they can change it, so be sure to do all the email verification and stuff first as a precaution. Also while you are sharing the games with them, you aren't able to be signed in on steam at the same time, nor can you both play together (obviously.) So aside from them buying the game, that's your only option.

    You could always try Hamachi or something similar, I know theres some new program everyone uses these days, but back when Left 4 Dead came out I'd play with friends over that. It may require some file swapping but if your friends are going to pirate the game then they should expect that at least.
