Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam

Let's do Dark Carnival again. This time, I want to avoid death at the end :D

Dark Carnival was really fun and had a great ending.
This event is full.

What difficulty level were you thinking?

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/21/2013 at 11:38pm

DAMN! Not fast enough for this one. The next one, perhaps, now that I have a machine that runs this well enough to play with others.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/22/2013 at 01:30am

I was thinking the same settings as last game. Wondering what those were so I can host it. Unless you want to Tim? That would be ok.

@beansmyname: yeah, catch you next time!

It was a Gib Fest mutation on advanced.

Also, would a versus match be possible in the future? It takes longer, but we can fit up to 8 people in.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/22/2013 at 06:01pm

Is versus some kind of deathmatch?

vdogmr25 wrote on 07/23/2013 at 03:30am

Two teams of four. They alternate each leg of the campaign playing as the survivors and the special infected. You get points for how far you get through the level as the survivors. Team with the most points at the end wins.

Oh fun. Yeah, the next event could be that for sure. Could be fun.

Bean, it's yours if you want it. Some stuff blew up at work (not literally) and I have to go in at 4AM in the morning, so I'll be asleep before this starts.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/23/2013 at 05:34pm

Awww, catch you next time Travis.

Travis   Admin wrote on 07/23/2013 at 05:47pm

Damn right you will! :)

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/23/2013 at 08:31pm

Thanks for the heads up, Travis. Are event times localized?

Travis   Admin wrote on 07/23/2013 at 08:37pm

Yes they are!

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/23/2013 at 08:46pm

Yeah, if your timezone is set (and I am certain we require it is) then it should be localized. After you join you can add it to Google Calendar / iPhone / Android or whatever and that should localize it too :D

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/23/2013 at 10:17pm

All set!

Tim_Bodnar wrote on 07/24/2013 at 12:49am

vdogmr called & the trains are running a little slow this afternoon. He should be home right around 7 and will hop in. Jon you can host it, :)

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 12:58am

Great, ill try and figure how how to run a game with the mods like last time. We can hold off a bit for vdogmr no problem.

Tim_Bodnar wrote on 07/24/2013 at 01:11am

Cool, honestly I'm not sure myself how to set the mutation up. vdogmr does it for me. :)

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 01:16am

There is a mutation game mode and you select which one you want. Then "games with friends" and advanced and there we are. Not too bad, but I will admit that Left 4 Dead isn't the most intuitive UI Valve shipped.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/24/2013 at 01:46am

And this is version 2. I'll be in there in about 10 minutes.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 03:20am

Whew, that was fun! Glad I beat that finally.

Oh and vdogmr25, thanks for the tips, they helped :D

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/24/2013 at 03:37am

That was ridiculously fun. Sorry about the voice thing. Turns out it's a long-standing bug in Steam or Pulseaudio. Apparently, there's a workaround and I'm going to give that a shot.

Definitely down to do that again whenever.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 03:43am

Totally. If you guys want to setup the next event feel free!

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 03:43am

I haven't tried voice in Linux yet, I wonder how it would do... Hmmm.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/24/2013 at 03:39pm

Well, voice works in the Steam app proper (so far as I can tell), but once you're in L4D2 the mic shuts off completely. I'm going to jump into Awesomenauts and see if the problem is there, too.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/24/2013 at 05:28pm

You have to press "C" to chat when I am playing L4D2, unsure about other games.

I tested my headset in Linux too, it works well. Totally amazed by how well Linux is progressing. Had to select it out of a list of things, but after finding it in Steam it worked like a charm.

beansmyname   Supporter wrote on 07/25/2013 at 03:05am

I pressed 'C' a few times last night and the bubble over my character showed I was chatting, but no one heard me. I am still unable to get voice chat to work in L4D2 at all. I'm not the only person having the problem and I've even tried a few things that were suggested on the forums. Still no dice.

It works in the Steam settings but nowhere else seemingly.

If anyone ever has a moment and would be willing to help me test my configuration, please let me know. Want to confirm that it works anywhere but the settings. Voice chat in group or in-game would be preferable.
