    This here is a handy little plugin that prints "[player] has joined the game." to everyone once a new player joins the server.

    I made it because for some reason, Valve chose not to show that message in L4D2.

    There shouldn't be any bugs or anything, but if there is, post them here I guess.

    PrintHintTextToAll("To all clients");

    In this case:
    PrintHintTextToAll("%s has joined the game.", name)

    But I would feel that hint messages are incredibly annoying if they're supposed to show when a client joins.

    Thanks a lot.

    Btw, i have merged 5 plugins in one, but as soon as i added the source code from your plugin (no, i did not forget the ; sign), the plugin failed to compile. I have tried lots of things but it simply wont compile so i had to put it as a separate plugin.

    Any help?

    Thanks for this plugin, been needing one for the 25 player games we get in. It is kinda a pain when random people join and you cant see who joined.

    L4D2 will show in chat, users that disconnect by default without any plugins. ;)

    Uh, I honestly couldn't tell you. Are you changing the code at all?

    As CUatTHEFINISH said, Disconnects are shown by default, this plugin just fills in the Connecting not showing.

    I've been using Connect Announce for a while now.

    By default (no plugins) the join/left game messages do show in L4D2 but I'm only playing on COOP so I cant confirm the issue in VS
