I still update this guide each time I throw a LAN party as noted in post 1. I've even had to follow my own guide after server reinstalls and it's worked when followed to a T. I never sold this as the best way, but as a way I found to work after much trial and error hoping to save future readers the same.

Please tell me, where is this guide incomplete? I'll gladly fix the gap(s)

No fix for the witch, charger chest bump and Finale score fix.

So the guide itself isn't incomplete, your complaint is that certain elements in the game are not altered to maintain the same level of difficulty for the extra players?

Iím not sure you understand those issues. Allow me to elaborate.

Witch - when you have a clone of a survivor and one of them startled the witch. There is a high chance that the witch will attack the wrong clone.

Charger Bump - If a charger hits a survivor clone and the next one survivor in its way is the same survivor model it will get stuck.

Campaign Ending score - scoring goes bad when you have clones as well. You will see same scores for two survivors at the ending credits.

As you can see this has nothing to do with difficulty.

Fair enough, I guess we always just played without encountering any of that. I can add the fixes to my server, test them out, and update the guide if you can share some links.

Update to this L4DToolZ version: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showpo...postcount=1327

-perhaps a good idea to update the Tut


@protivakid

HEy i did everything like mentioned in your great Tut. BTW thx 4 that.
As soon as i start the server i can read teh following lines.

sv_maxplayers init error
sv_removehumanlimit init error
unreserved_ptr init error

i used your provided server.cfg, only changed sv_steamgroup_exclusive to 1 and changed the name of the server.

What the heck is the problem or is that a normal error promt?

Regards

Attached youll find the whole serverlog:
Hi,

But I have exactly the same issues like in this quoted text.

Unknown command "snarespeak_endofround_alltalk"
Unknown command "snarespeak_allowboomer"
Unknown command "snarespeak_boomertime"
Unknown command "snarespeak_twoway"
Unknown command "snarespeak_startofround_alltalk"
Unknown command "motd_enable"

All these tell me that you are missing the plugins that create these commands. This wouldn't hurt you in any way as they just add some features to the game.

When you first tried, did you use the specific versions I mentioned or did you grab the latest of everything I mentioned? Did your LAN work out?

Have you tried walking through the whole guide again? It does seem you missed a step someplace. And yes I still get email alerts for new posts, not that this thread was ever on fire haha.
