Common L4D Problems & Solutions:
[Problem] How do I bring up the console?
[Solution] Use one of three different methods:
1- Go to your left4dead\cfg folder and open up config.cfg.
Add: bind "button" "toggleconsole"
[button=any keyboard button you wish to bind console to.]
2- In game, go to options and enable "Developer console".
3- Add -console to your Left 4 Dead shortcut. Right click L4D shortcut -> select properties -> look for the "Target" line and add -console to the end:
"C:\games\Left 4 Dead\left4dead.exe" -console
[Problem] How do i disable intro videos?
[Solution] Add -novid to your Left 4 Dead shortcut. Right click L4D shortcut -> select properties -> look for the "Target" line and add -novid to the end:
"C:\games\Left 4 Dead\left4dead.exe" -console -novid
[Problem] How do I bring up the server browser?
[Solution] Go to your left4dead\cfg folder and open config.cfg. Add: bind "button" "openserverbrowser".
[button=any keyboard button you wish to bind the server browser to.]
Server browser doesn't work in non steam versions, it will show up but not function.
[Problem] I can't see my or any servers in lobby, even if we are in same lan/hamachi.
[Solution] Make sure server and client is using sv_lan 0, make sure all use the latest hamachi version, some how it seems like Vista machines wont find any servers in lobby but XP users will find. If you did the above and you can't find any servers type connect ip:port in console.
[Problem] I get Class C error when I try to join
[Solution] Make sure you use latest hamachi and sv_lan is 0. Then type connect ip:port.
[Problem] I get connection timed our after 10 retries.
[Solution] Make sure server port is forwarded and firewalls are configured / turned off.
[Problem] My L4D is crashing to desktop.
[Solution] #1- If you use Vista, disable visual themes when running the game.
#2- Disable V-Sync in advanced video options.
#3- Turn off Multicore in advance video options.
#4- Make sure Steam Cloud is disabled. [see next problem]
[Problem] Cannot get rid of Steam cloud - Game keeps crashing!
[Solution] If you left Steam Cloud checked and cannot run the game without it crashing:
1- Go to Registry Key in regedit:
It will have a default value of 0x00007fff (32767) meaning steam cloud is enabled
2- Set the value to 0 to disable steam cloud.
delete this key and the dialog box will pop up again next time you run left4dead.exe.
[Problem] I am having Problems connecting to servers.
[Solution] Try replacing your engine.dll in the left4dead/bin folder with the cracked one HERE.
[Problem] "The Server Requires that you be running Steam" Error
[Solution] Make sure Revolution's Steam Emulator is properly installed.
Make sure you install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package, for the steam emulator to work.
[Problem] Malware in the Skidrow release. The uninstaller (skidrow release), takes a very long time to finish and may stop responding. Afterward (or during) removal, system fonts become different. Bold and italic fonts appear where they should be normal.
[Solution] If you already uninstalled:
The installer this group made registers some fonts (in Left 4 Dead\platform\vgui\fonts) with windows that it shouldn't, causing your original fonts to be unregistered (but not deleted). The originals should still be in WINDOWS\Fonts, they're just not active. Move them out of the folder and then back again to re-register them:
ARIALN.TTF arialbd.ttf lucon.ttf tahoma.ttf trebuc.ttf
arial.ttf cour.ttf marlett.ttf times.ttf verdana.ttf
If you are about to uninstall:
Make a backup of FONTS folder in your WINDOWS folder before Left 4 Dead uninstall.
After uninstall, move the fonts back to instal them. Click yes. Then restart pc.
There are so many ideas floating around my head, that I need to FOCUS on just ONE to get started. Great GIVE AWAY!
