To test our custom maps collection a bit quicker, we are going to play CS:GO once a month. Months with a WAN/LAN party will be skipped since we already play the game at those. Since we now have a CS:S server, we are going to split this night between the two versions, one hour for each version. The custom maps for this time around are cs_motel, de_resort, de_ruins for CS:GO and cs_747_css, de_survivor_css, and de_vegas_css for CS:S. They will download automatically when you connect.

Below is a reminder as to where we are in our quest to complete all of the campaigns on Expert mode. The bolded campaigns are the completed ones and the red one is the one that we played most recently. There is an achievement for surviving all of the Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns on expert. We will be making one last attempt at playing the new custom campaign, I Hate Mountains 2, so be sure to see the link below on how to have it installed ahead of time. If it causes us issues, we will switch to another test run of versus mode.

The bolded campaigns are the completed ones and the red one is the one that we played most recently. There is an achievement for surviving all of the Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns on expert. We will playing the new custom campaign, I Hate Mountains 2, again this time around in one last attempt to get 4+ players working, so be sure to see the link below on how to have it installed ahead of time. If it causes us issues, we will switch to another map and abandon trying to get it to work for good. We changed the method for installing it to work around the issue, and you need to have made this change to play. It no longer uses the VPK file. You need to delete that file and follow the instructions here.

Reinstall the L4D2 custom map, I Hate Mountains 2
Posted on Sunday February 26, 2017

Since we are having no luck at getting more than 4 players on this map, we are going to try a different approach. Please follow these directions to be prepared for the next time that we play it.

 

#1 Delete the ihatemountains2.vpk file from your steam/steamapps/common/Left 4 Dead 2/left4dead2/addons folder.

 

#2 Download the map again from the link below.

 

I Hate Mountains

 

#3 Once downloaded, extract the files contained in the zip file into the steam/steamapps/common/Left 4 Dead 2/ folder and overwrite files as needed.

 

#4 Download and unzip the updated sound cache file into the steam/steamapps/common/Left 4 Dead 2/left4dead2/sound folder overwriting the existing file there.

 

#5 You can check that it is installed by loading the game and clicking the Single player item in the menu then going to the addons option. It should show up there.  The server is also currently running the map, so if you join it ok, you are good to go.

To test our custom maps collection a bit quicker, we are going to play CS:GO once a month. Months with a WAN/LAN party will be skipped since we already play the game at those. This is a trial run for this. If we do not get enough of us to make it worthwhile, we will stick to the WAN/LAN parties in the future, and we will most likely switch to a test run of Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed. The maps for this time around are cs_cruise, cs_downtown, de_coast, and de_log.
