[L4D] Dark Blood update and.. Crash Bandicoot L4D style!

CastorJudo has updated his four map Campaign Dark Blood to v2. This is a big update which includes Versus tweaks, engine and BOT improvements. See the readme for details!

Dark Blood is on both servers.


FlyingBandicoot has made a 4 map Left 4 Dead Campaign based on levels from the Crash Bandicoot series. Since the 'L4D The Sacrifice' update where they added VPK audio cache support the customs sounds aren't working but this is currently being addressed and an updated version will hopefully be out soon. A bit of a pain for mappers BUT much better for everyone once updated.

Crash Bandicoot Course v4.0 is currently on the test server and will be added to the main server once the customs sounds have been sorted.

[L4D] Server news

I've removed Fort Noesis and I Hate Mountains from the main server. It looks like both Campaigns are no longer being developed which is a shame. Both are so close to being fully playable without major issues.

SOURCE - Fort Noesis
SOURCE I Hate Mountains - forum - Where is v1.2?

Both of these are still on the test server which is run on request or if the main server is full.

Jungle Crisis is also now only available on the test server.

I've added ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead to my to-do server list. An awesome coop military sim! Initial server testing went well, I just have to tweak bandwidth and difficulty settings to my liking. A small amount of custom content will be added. Test nights soon.

Stay tuned...

[L4D] Dead Before Dawn 
Sunday, 10 October, 2010, 00:35 - Left 4 Dead

For those that don't know.. Dead Before Dawn is a custom campaign based off the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.

Some recent news..
Nearly a year ago, we released a beta version of Dead Before Dawn to try and satisfy those who kept nagging us to release the campaign. We did just that and then suffered the wrath of the internet. Well, ever since then, we decided not to post any more news or media about the campaign until we feel it's ready. We did exactly just that, we kept updates to a minimum...

We have successfully overcome these obstacles and the campaign works in VPK format

A few weeks ago, we sent out a link to all the people who has ever donated to L4DMods. This link allowed them to download the RC for Dead Before Dawn. They had their hands dirty with the campaign and so far we have not received any serious issues with the campaign. Other errors we missed have already been fixed and everyday we have a new version with previous errors fixed. Although, there is always more work to be done when working on a campaign, what remains will be dealt with over the coming months. We can however assure you, that the future updates are only for minor things that are lower on our list or priorities. The campaign works in every aspect of the word.

* Fixed the need to type "snd_rebuildaudiocache" in the console to hear our custom sounds
* Fixed specific mission music and sounds from The Sacrifice DLC not playing when Dead Before Dawn is installed.

Dead Before Dawn v1.66 Complete is now on both servers.

[L4D] game update! 
Sunday, 10 October, 2010, 00:07 - Left 4 Dead
Posted by ned
Left 4 Dead has recently had some significant updates..
- Fixed a few third person camera cheats.
- Added VPK audio cache support.
- Added "The Sacrifice" content.
- Added Versus Multi-Map Scoreboard
- Added the L4D2 Mounted .50 Cal

- Fixed demos crashing on load

Some things to note:

"Added VPK audio cache support" - A bit late but this enables custom mappers to add custom sounds to their work and for us not to have to use the snd_rebuildaudiocache command in the console to be able to hear them.

"Added "The Sacrifice" content" - more official campaign, versus and survival goodness! ..and five new achievements!
