    Anyone get this? I can load the first time fine, but any load after that makes this shit happen
    I suspect it's a lighting thing, because everything looks fine inside the train cars, just the normal mapped walls look like shit

    I run TF2 and other Sources games maxed, this is set to recommended settings because I don't know wtf

    I don't know, try messing around with video settings?

    I was thinking it was something with the audio settings hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    This game looks better and runs as well as CSS or HL2.

    I don't benefit from walls painted with blood or long lasting zombie corpses but it's very pretty.

    Edit: same thing happend to me MGS2 Demo, I just restarted and it was fine.

    Anyone know where to find the gamepad settings? I have a PS3 Dualshock set up, except I can't adjust the right and left on the right stick. Its not anywhere in the menu ingame.

    We get to the minigun and while Cango and I are all like 'yo lets get those gas cans and get ourselves prepared' Enders is just like 'FUCK YEAH' and activates the door.
    And then he got choked by a smoker, and I laughed.
    And then I went to rescue him and I got gunned down by the minigunner. :(

    Ok, first time I beat expert:

    We had tried a number of times to beat expert but always ran into a tank which decimated us or left us with one person who got pounced by a hunter. After trying a few times we started a run where we ran into a witch. There were 3 people with hunting rifles and we all shot the witch at once and the combined fire killed her. Then we ran into a tank near the end of the level and it downed 3 and killed 3 of us. The last person finished it off with a pistol. Luckily, there was a closet nearby and we waited for everyone to respawn. And we beat it. It was epic (sort of). I love this game.

    Can anyone tell me how to modify the zombies' stats? I've been through the demo with a friend multiple times on expert, I want to try some more hilarious scenarios. Took a look around the folder and didn't see anything obvious but I may well be blind

    yes it does. the issue is that it looks fucked up. restarting means it doesn't looked fucked up, hence fixing the issue.

    A friend of mine somehow set the zombie's running speed to crazy levels. Basically they would look at you and in half a second be in your face.

    If you read what he wrote, it starts out fine when he plays, but whenever there's a load screen it gets fucked up.

    But it crops up during the loading between maps sometimes, and even during that game I restarted multiple times and it didn't fix it

    Nooooot acceptable

    I am going to be so miffed if my machine can't run this after a full day of downloading (and probably more, once I get to the updates).

    I hear talk that my video card can't run pixel shaders. Well if that were true then it wouldn't be able to run TF2, now would it? Take that you rogue's gallery of scoundrels and verminous confidence men!
    fuckfuckfuck don't you dare crap out on me now lappy c'mon we've grown so close

    TF2 only needs Pixel Shader 1.1
    L4D needs Pixel Shader 2.0 or so people are saying.

    Whatcha got?

    Ah, so I guess I cannot host any seeing as my comp is not strong enough. I want to experiment... Maybe in single-player. I saw a video where some guy made constant panic and max zombies 250. It was ridiculous.

    This looks kinda similar to a problem I'm getting. I'm running on the rock-bottom settings, so I think that accounts for the minor differences between our problems(I've got this weird tiled look on everything instead of those black spots, but I've still got the super bright walls and high contrast thing going on). Alt-tabbing out and back in fixes it for me, though. Only ever happens in the second map, too.

    Outside of that odd graphics anomaly, it's really amazing to me how well this game looks and runs on my system, even at bottomed-out settings. In some ways, it looks better than TF2, and damn sure runs better most of the time(local hosting excepted, of course). It is a little disappointing that I don't get some of the neater effects, like the film grain, but the basic stuff, like models, textures, and the like, looks better than all the previous Source games AND still runs better. I'm not sure what witch-doctor voodoo Valve is employing these days to be able to make better graphics use less resources, but I'm really liking it.

    I'm not sure there will be enough ammo in the game to kill two tanks in the Expert finales. I'm guessing the machine gun will be totally required.
