Sunday, 29 August, 2010, 02:00 - Left 4 Deadeyeonus, the author of the Hunter Training map made a plugin for this map. It's of benefit for both L4D and L4D2 servers. I've decided to add it to both the main and test L4D servers.

Some things to note..
You do not need this plugin to play multiplayer on L4D dedicated servers, however, I recommend getting it anyway, as it will make your server much less able to be highjacked, as it will not enable all cheats, but merely those listed below.
whenever HTM is loaded, the cheats it needs will be enabled, and whenever any other map is loaded, the plugin will disable them, preventing abuse that could happen otherwise.
1.0 - Initial version
1.1 - Removed all unnecessary variables.
1.2 - Add hook for noclip to make it actually work - merely removing its cheat flag wasn't enough.
1.3 - Added "kill" to the cheat enable list, restricted "give" to "give health", restricted "z_spawn" to exclude tanks and witches, made enabled noclip function like normal, fixed minor bug that causes servers to bork on map change.
1.3.1 - Added check to restriction on give and z_spawn to only restrict when "l4d2_htm_mp_enable" = 1.
2.0 - Added manual start of Live Fire Course settings to admins for any map and removed need to manually reset anything on map change.
2.5 - Add "respawn", "respawn_all", updated "htm_training_start" to also change game mode to versus and teleport bots back to start when they get to the end of the map. Requires "htm_mp_enabler.gamedata.txt" to be in gamedata folder for respawning to function.
I'll add some L4D specific notes for this plugin soon..
