    A good arcade setup for public / friend servers especially those that want a guide or gauge to properly have their adrenaline fueled server fun and loving:

    Recommend Easy or Normal difficulty, have Special infected at 4spawn at once, 8max (Maximum special infected allowed out at once) in the l4d2_autoIS config. Which is in the sourcemod folder in the cfg folder. The commands you want to edit are:

    l4d2_ais_limit "4" change 4 to 8 save the file.
    l4d2_ais_spawn_size "4" leave at 4.

    Also some useful commands if you are admin of the server:
    sm_qcvar l4d2_ais_spawn_size 4
    sm_qcvar l4d2_ais_limit 28
    sm_csc - change another players character.
    sm_addbot - adds a survivor bot that a player can gain control of.
    Basically you can set the spawn size from 1 - 28 or limit from 1 - 28. Very useful!
    Left 4 Dead 2 Arcade Edition main attraction modifications are found in the server.cfg file and in cfg folder sourcemod folder!
    Mod comes with lootdrop, character select menu, pro infected bot spawner, and more!
    Make sure you keep the server.cfg file intact as it houses most of the A.I. Director and Special Infected changes & modifications!

    l4d2_autoIS, l4d2csm00, are main cfg files you should check out to tune the mod to your liking after you set your server up!

    Useful commands for any player:
    sm_csm - change your players character from 1 - 8 Survivors!
    Bill, Zoey, Francis, Louis, Nick, Rochelle, Coach, Ellis!
    type !join in chat if you get stuck in spectator and you will take control of an available Survivor Bot! Type !join multiple times to cycle through available Survivor Bots if stuck in spectator!

    This mod scales well with all player skill levels feel free to play on Easy, Normal, Advanced, Expert Campaign or Realism mode! Give it a shot and let me know what you think! Also feel free to Add/Modify to your liking and show us your server with the mod running with your mods in addition going!

    Uses Stripper:Source to add on weapons, dynamic spawns, etc. to various campaigns throughout the game! All Tier 2 weapons and Grenade Launchers and M60s can be found on various campaigns in the game! Special Infected can drop items and weapons! I will update the Stripper Config files over time to finish adding in Tier 2 & 3 weapons / spawns / fixes / etc. to many campaigns to come!

    Some plugins source code like l4d2csm00 , l4d2_autoIS , l4d2_lootdrop, l4d2additemsbots are
    slightly modified from their original to be better tailored for the gameplay in this mod.

    Example, the L4d2_autoIS has removed the leap away feature from the Hunter in the source code so the hunter will STILL ALWAYS leap away as in the base game of left 4 dead 2 if it is shot
    when fast response is set to 1 or 0. With the leap away set to 0 in the source code it made the hunter way too easy to kill with fast response set to 1 when in addition it made smoker and boomer have no delay on their vomit and tongue attack on normal and easy difficulties, which was not modified.

    l4d2_lootdrop adds all weapons to the lootdrop table except a few CSS weapons, however it has the AWP in there you will need to give it dice roll number on the infected if you want to see it drop in the game. The rest of the CSS weapons associated with l4d2 can be manually added if you properly inspect the code in the game and put their name in the loot tables.

    l4d2additemsbots adds a simple bot spawner on command: sm_addbot and you can modify the entity counts of the items in game. Example: health packs are at 8 per stack and
    so is the standard melee spawn. Since this mod can go up to 8 players.
    l4d2csm00 is the old school csm except all 8 survivors are working with 0 problems under linux, and a admin command (sm_csc) to switch the model of another players character is in the plugin.

    Installation Guide:

    CFG files go into CFG folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\cfg
    Server.cfg and Sourcemod folder with the .cfg files inside of it go into cfg folder as stated above.

    Metamod.vdf, Stripper, Sourcemod, Pounce_Damage_Uncap, Metamod, l4dtoolz, go into addons folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\addons

    Don't forget to add at least yourself to admin in sourcemod\configs admins_simple.ini

    Restart/Start your server after all files are uploaded.

    You are finished.

    Have Fun!

    I hate to be "that guy," but this should be a tutorial rather than a plugin release. You're not releasing anything new nor standalone. The zip file contains plugins and extensions of other people with modified config files and custom commands, and you don't even seem to mention/credit those people. I don't really see any indication of your own plugins/extensions in any of the folders.

    I don't mean to come off as rude, but it really would make more sense to make this a tutorial instead since it just comprises of file/config modifications.

    As said above you shouldn't be releasing with sourcemod and metamod packaged, there are compiled plugins without the source code, stock plugins from sourcemod etc.

    I'd suggest writing the post like a tutorial linking to the plugins, showing the configs/setting changes.

    From a security standpoint I wouldn't trust any of the compiled binaries .DLL/.SO/.SMX.

    Roger I'll see if I still can recover the source code. Also is that the only problem you guys have with this? I'm not taking credit for their plugins I've been using this for years and it's a good campaign mod. Did you watch the demo video? This is for people who wanted to try a campaign mod. You can modify the Special Infected and Common Infected in the server.cfg file. The A.I. Director in the server.cfg file, and much more in the server.cfg file. You don't have to tamper with the source code to make the mod work. It's really well done. I've had it for 9 years. All credit goes to their respective plugin creators. Also like I said I will try and recover more of the Source code but I might not have all of it as I put this mod together over 9 years ago then I would play it with friends and update as necessary and try new things to see what works best for a good campaign experience.

    However if that was the only issue and u are interested in this mod I suggest you watch the video and see if you want to install it on your server to give it a shot. Hint: if you are in a rushing team put Special Infected to 1 Special Infected per survivor so that would be 4 Special Infected if you have 4 players with atleast +2 +3 or +4 on l4d2_ais_limit so that would be 6 7 or 8 for a good challenge. If you are playing normally put Special Infected to 4 if on 4 player team in l4d2_ais_spawn_size 4 and l4d2_ais_limit 4.

    The issue is simply how it's packaged, I think the rules on alliedmods state you shouldn't post the whole sourcemod/metamod installation and .smx without the source code. Full copy paste installations like this never work right from my experience (talking about backing up my previous servers and restoring) and public ones well I would never trust them anyway. Nothing against you, just my two cents.

    Ah, I'll see how much source code I can recover, I don't have all the source code for all the files though, as the mod as a whole is quite old. I hope that isn't an issue though and gets the thread deleted. As the mod is quite good, you can still find most of the plugins the mod uses on this website (sourcemod.net) however thank you for the tips as it will only make the mod better in the long run!

    I mean, you shouldn't post the sourcemod/metamod install whatsoever, just the 3rd party plugins and their source code, not the sourcemod plugins.

    OK I will get all of the source code, If I can't get all of the source code I will let you know. Give me some time though. Thx for the input.

    **UPDATE** Ok all the Source Code for the plugins is in there and base mods to get what you see in the videos, is working on servers you upload to is available! In addition to a full download from the first download link, to upload the entire l4d2arcade mod playable server is also available with a better set up layout for installing! all source files except qcvartest and cvartest and precacher is available! As I couldn't find the source files for those sorry! But i'm sure they are around www.sourcemod.net somewhere if the source is really that important for those files! They are minor so you shouldn't notice anything as I didn't modify their source. One is a quiet convar changer sm_qcvar instead of just sm_cvar where you see the text printed on your screen. Also cvartest was I believe something that revealed all hidden cvars in the console like if you typed in their name they are no longer hidden. You would have to dig around for it on www.sourcemod.net for its source sorry! Precacher precaches a lot of things so the game doesn't crash on map load. That is all! Let me know if you have any more problems with this set up! Or any questions! Thank you for your time!

    Also I post all that stuff cause its like an actual whole new game to play not really just little plugins to enhance something - its a bunch of plugins and cvar changes to A.I. Director S.I. Survivor, Weapons, Friendly Fire, etc. to make a badazz campaign experience on a whole new level, compared to old campaign - it goes from boring slow standard campaign to arcadey fast paced fun/exhilerating/intense campaign! Hopefully nothing else is the problem! But like I said, if there is, I will fix it right away! So let me know! Peace!

    You need to tidy this up if you want to distribute it, you need the source corresponding source code for everything GPL-licensed you're distributing. As was suggested before, you should instead link to the existing release threads of the various plugins/extensions you require. If you get this into a state where it isn't a massive pile of copyright violations you can report it for re-approval.
