    GM L4D server - Instructions

    Right, due to the instability and unreliability of third party servers and numerous other matters; [GM] is now hosting an 8 (MAX) slot L4D server that will allow Disco to play with all his friends! (With no-one being left out).

    Anyway, to connect specifically to the GM server, some magical witchcraft is needed:

    Connecting via lobby:

    To connect to the Gamingmasters' server, the lobby leader MUST do the following;

    Right click on L4D in the steam games list and select properties;

    Click on "Set launch options" in the properties dialog;

    +sv_search_key GMvanilla
    to the textbox in the dialog and then press OK

    Now, whenever you press "Start game" It'll always look for the GM server.


    Good luck,

    The Management.

    To be honest, 18 is to much. Make it a 12 or 14 because it becomes a big death match after that = no fun.

    or you could just type "openserverbrowser" and add it to favourites?

    *bump* - This also works for L4d2
  10. Are L4D (1) servers still alive?
  11. Geit Coding wizard!

    No, replaced with a l4d2 server.

    Doesn't the search key also work in-game when you open console and type "sv_search_key GMvanilla"?

    protip: when spamming threads to get your pitiful post count up; check the date of the last post.
  15. The search key no longer works reliably - for best results, put this in your autoexec.cfg:

    It might also be worth binding a couple of Function keys (which are pretty much the only bindings that work in lobbies) to set it between the IP and "".

    Ah, i see.

    And Gaw, i am not trying to get my pitifull post count up :)
  17. HellJack A message was delivered, and received.

    I can't wait to try this game out.

    Should I start with L4D 1, and then move onto L4D 2?
  18. Sir Rahka ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

    Well you can play in chronological order aka L4D 1 first, then catch up with the comic and move on to L4D 2. Or you can play L4D 2 and then visit the historical world of L4D 1 to shed some light onto when the infection started and so on and so forth.

    If you want, I am up for a game of L4D 1 when I get back home (Since Ame does not yet have it on her own account, gonna get it to her soon though).
  19. I prefer starting with L4D1, because if you play L4D2 first it can feel weird when there is no melee weapons in L4D1. And also, if you need players, I'm ready!
