I use these settings with L4DToolz:

sm_cvar sv_removehumanlimit "1"
sm_cvar sv_maxplayers "8"
sm_cvar sv_force_unreserved "1"
sm_cvar sv_visiblemaxplayers "8"

The problem solved, here the issue.

1. when there any slot 0/8 (no one in the server, and i force join via steam groups = no one joined)
but
2. when i create a lobby and use mm_dedicated_force_servers and buum... another player joined

you know why no one joined at number 1 issues?

It sounds like you're only allowing lobby connections to your server.

These are what I have for allowing players to connect to my servers in multiple ways:

sv_steamgroup "XXXXXXXX" // replace this with your Steam group's ID
sv_steamgroup_exclusive "0" // 0 = allows non-members to connect/see the server, 1 = only group members can connect/see the server
sv_allow_lobby_connect_only "0" // 0 = allow players to connect in different ways, 1 = only game lobbies can connect to the server
sv_lan "0" // 0 = allows public connections, 1 = allows local connections only

yeah sounds like a Steam Group cvar setting issue

also L4D2 has a weird system to its matchmaking, if you use the connect 00.00.000.00:27015 command, or just click on Steam Group Servers on the main menu to join your server, then no random public players will see your match / server, only the players that have joined your steam group will see it in that group list on their games main menu

*if you want All Public players to join your matchs on your server, then you have to make a regular L4D2 Lobby by going to Campaign, Play Online, then more options at the bottom to create your own lobby, then change the lobbys Server Type to the Steam Group Server option, then when you start the lobby as the lobby leader you can pick a server to use from your own group servers list that you see on the main menu. . . and if you do that then any random player will see your match in the regular default l4d2 Play Online option for coop
(just dont let other players in your lobby Vote to Start, otherwise if it counts down it will choose a random server like normal, or use the mm_force_dedicated command from the lobby like above)


not to spring an older post and im guessing he figured his situation out, but im finding more and more players asking about this area of l4d2 and this post keeps showing up in google xP so hopefully thats helpful to the future searchs that come from frustration in said area lol
