The great guys over at sourcemod have done it again. The latest snapshot seems to be working fine on our servers. Make sure you have build 2943 or above.

Metamod patch available

Posted: April 23rd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Left 4 Dead 2, Plugins | Tags: | Comments Off on Metamod patch available

The good guys over at sourcemod have released a new build of MM:S, that hopefully gets it loading. Sourcemod will need patching too, so for our purposes, we have to wait for a sourcemod patch as well before everything returns to normal.

The guys over at sourcemod are doing a great job patching this at the rate that they do!

Valve fails with the Passing update

Posted: April 23rd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Left 4 Dead 2, Plugins | Tags: | Comments Off on Valve fails with the Passing update

Six hours have passed since release and the servers haven’t got the full update yet. A panic patch has been released for the client, but doesn’t do much good when the servers don’t receive the update.

Seriously, Valve should pre-release the servers for big updates like this, so that people don’ get stuck with no servers on line after they’ve updated their clients. This is the longest outage we’ve had on the server side since the game was released.

In addition to this, it seems like the update broke metamod:source and sourcemod, so a lot of servers will stay off line until the community manages to update the plugins.

EDIT: The update went through for the servers now, so we’re live. Without Metamod and sourcemod.

The passing has been released

Posted: April 22nd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Left 4 Dead 2 | Tags: | Comments Off on The passing has been released

Servers are being updated as we speak.

Valve spills the beans here.

“The Passing” features 3 new maps, new weekly game modes (Mutations), a new “uncommon common” zombie class (the fallen survivor), melee weapon (golf club), firearm (M-60), support for infected bot play in Versus, 10 new achievements and more!

Is that francis I see?

Team Fortress 2 item drop system overhaul

Posted: April 21st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Team Fortress 2 | Tags: | 1 Comment »

Finally the people at valve seem to address the problem for us casual players that play a lot of custom maps. So far we get nearly zero drops when playing between 2 and 4 hours, which sucks.

Read more about the details over at the official blog:

City 17 v3.0 for Left 4 Dead 2

Posted: April 4th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Left 4 Dead 2, updates | Tags: | Comments Off on City 17 v3.0 for Left 4 Dead 2

The already really nice City 17 campaign for Left 4 Dead has been ported to Left 4 Dead 2 as version 3.0. Complete with a rain storm, gauntlet and loads of other goodies.

This is the best Left 4 Dead 2 campaign so far in my opinion.
