    Description
    This plugin adds on to the default Sourcemod admin menu with a custom campaign menu. This will allow you to easily navigate all currently installed campaigns.
    This plugin does not touch the map rotation at all and I have no idea why people think it does. Please READ this post in full before posting!

    Installation
    L4D
    Download the l4d_campaign_manager.zip package and copy the files to your server. This package does not include the missions folder as it already exists on all L4D installations.
    L4D2
    Download the l4d2_campaign_manager.zip package and copy the files to your server. This package includes the missions folder and must be copied to your server. If you do not do this the plugin will fail.

    Note: The zip packages are compiled against SourceMod 1.3. If you are using 1.2 for L4D, download the individual files and compile it on your server. Remember to download the missions.zip if you are running a L4D2 server and have manually compiled the plugin.

    Upgrading
    Copy all files to your server while maintaining the directory structure and allow it to overwrite them. Any specific instructions will be included in the release.

    Custom Campaigns

    To install custom campaigns on your dedicated server you will need to extract the mission file from the .vpk addon file. This can be done with GFCScape. Follow the instructions provided on the linked page to extract the file. You are looking for the text file in the missions folder. This will need to copied to the missions directory on your server. This is the only file that needs to be extracted.

    Translations
    A translation file is included to handle Valve's naming scheme. If you have translated this into another language please leave a message here and I will add it to the next version. This plugin currently supports the following languages.
    • English
    • German

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
    This is a list of frequently asked questions that will hopefully clarify common misconceptions about this plugin.

    Q: Will this plugin allow me to change gamemodes without editing any .cfg files?
    A: As of v1.0.1, yes it will. All you have to do is make sure you have set the gamemode you want to play as an allowed type on the server using sv_gametypes. Ex. sv_gametypes "coop,versus,survival" would allow you to play Coop, Versus, and Survival maps. Make sure you do not have mp_gamemode set in any config file as this will prevent the plugin from changing the gamemode properly.

    CVAR doesn't need sm_ in front it, most other plugins convention use l4d_ as a prefix.

    Looking good though, gotta install this on my server!

    Just a feature suggestion from me: any chance we could roll in a game mode changer with this? e.g. you pick a map then pick the gamemode (versus, scavenge, coop, realism, survival)

    I just use sm_ in case users put my plugins cvars into the server.cfg so they know its a sourcemod cvar. Downtown, that is a good idea and something I will look into adding for the next version. Since the maps are already sorted based on what gamemodes they support I can just use a ServerCommand("map map_name gamemode") instead of ForceChangeLevel. One problem I do know with that is it tends to disconnect everyone when the gamemode gets changed. Maybe there is a way around that, but I haven't looked too much into it.

    L4D2 itself doesn't have any public CVARs starting with L4D so it's not a problem. Pretty much all the other plugins are using l4d_ or l4d2_ as CVAR prefixes so you should stick with that convention so we can get your plugin approved faster.

    sm_cvar mp_gamemode <gamemode>
    changelevel <level>

    Works without disconnecting anyone.

    Since not all maps support all game modes (eg scavenge for c1 only is supported by c1m4) it may make sense to first display the game mode that is being changed to, then the list of maps that are supported by that game mode.

    e.g. command 1: opens up a map changing menu for the current game mode. command 2: opens up a game mode menu that when selected goes to the command 1 menu.

    Thanks for the translation DieTeetasse. Unfortunately since I do not have L4D2 I wasn't able to test this and I missed quite a few strings. When I went through the missions files I just took the values for coop and assumed they would be the same for the others as is the case with L4D. For some reason Valve decided to have a different string for each gamemode. I've attached the updated translation file. If you could go through and translate the added strings that would be great.

    Hi.

    1) Any idea on how can I limit to coop only?

    2) It could be better if you can make it to be able to go back up one level after accidentally chosen a mission/gamemode.
