There is a guy named HeXcrimson
in the steam forums that claims to be able to change the restrictions on max players and enable spectator slots. He doesn't want to release the information for some reason but here is the post:
To quote HeXcrimson: "I found function names in the engine.so, and translated them into memory signatures in the engine.dll, and then detoured them and overrode the return values.
canorous2x: Actually testing today was the most ive played l4d since it came out. Only bug I saw that was when you voted to return to lobby, it had a spasm and crashed. Only solution I can think of is just disabling the return to lobby vote. That would take care of the only known bug."
This might give someone ideas but i have a feeling this won't go with VAC.
