    No man, Valve is dedicating all its resources to this game, we are to see new levels, weapons and massive bug fixes coming out very soon.

    If you do a internet search they have about 35 "NEW" movie campaigns which equal to about 170 new levels of game play. I just hope the levels are long enough.

    Here check out these links:

    Left4Dead Tournament

    There is a left4dead tournament for money, possibly 300+ dollars depending on the number of teams that show, in Cincinnati, Ohio, at Roxx Coffeehouse and Games. A few people posting here live in Ohio, and in Cleveland, and if they would like to come to possibly come to Roxx Coffeehouse and Games for the tournament, which will be on a Saturday later in this month, than send me an email at michaeldblr437@gmail.com. Unfortunately, you must show up on location to participate, so participants not in the region or close to the region would be able to go. For further information send me an message and I will send you more. It is teams of 4v4, single elimination on blood harvest, $10 entrance fee. For more information and directions, send me an email if you are interested in going.

    Semi-Auto: Powerful and very fast - My Favorite L4D Weapon!!!
    [​IMG]

    Double Barrel: Extremely Powerful but slow loading. It's powerful shot compensates for the slow loading time. (Possible upcoming Gun for L4D I HOPE!!!)

    Hey you guys can run it in 3D if you happen to have the glasses and care to try.

    Just download this driver and choose Anaglyph than enable it.

    Same here. :toast:
    The game has been quoted as one of the best all time “EVER” multi-player On-Line game with awesome Single Player action to satisfy both worlds.

    yeah i mean i would have been happy with oh...10 more maps or so. i mean i'm not even tired of the 4 we have now. but 35? man that is great. not crazy about the "orange" stuff. but hey thats ok, i'll take the rest. looks great. i'll be playing this game for a good many years to come, i'm sure. its already taken the place of any other shooter out there for me. and its my first online gaming experience. so i couldn't ask for anything more. i am REALLY looking forward to all of it

    well those maps are 3rd party. they arent official maps.

    Orange is actually very good, its a test map for the author to see what works and what doesnt for his real maps, which will be made when the SDK is released.

    i've played most of the 3rd party maps, the official ones are far higher quality

    Hey guys. I discovered a new glitch with the starter Shotgun.

    While shooting at a zombie once the shot goes thought melee directly afterward and it will shot again maybe even a third time with out consuming ammo.

    I wish it did.
    Double Barrel should theoretically give you the power of at least 3 to 5 pump action single barrel shotguns shooting all at once. It all has to do with it's integrated design and timing which makes them so much more powerful. When those two barrels shoot out at the same time it would decapitate anything standing in front.

    Theoretically it should only take between 5 to 8 shots of a Double Barrel to kill a TANK. It also would take a little longer to re-load a Double Barrel.

    I really hope Valve comes out with a Double Barrel. It would just give players more choice and keep more people excited.

    I am designing a L4D map and I am going to call it “Circle of Death”. Let’s just say you better have full ammo just before you try to enter the safe house, if you can enter it with all your limbs attached that is. :eek:

    Type map mapname in the console after you install it in the L4D folder.

    O.K. in detail where exactly do you install a 3rd party map in the L4D folder? Is there a specific place to place that map into?

    And how exactly do you enable/play a 3rd party map. We press the ~ to get into the games console, then what? What do we type? I’ve tried enabling a 3rd party map but had no luck at all.

    O.K. that’s what I thought but when I try to enable it by pressing the ~ and typing the map name it does not work? Any suggestions?

    O.K. I found this on the L4D Database Website:
