Full "Back To School" campaign for L4D anyone?
We're still getting requests to release full “Back To School” campaign for L4D.
But I'm alone on this project right now. I'm not able to backport whole campaign to L4D1 and fix crashing issue in L4D only by myself.

So if you want to help us. If you want full "Back To School" campaign for L4D.
Share and give your "thumbs up" to this picture:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=147153841
That way we can figure out how many players really want our campaign released for L4D and we can find mapper, who could help us.
Yes, I'm looking for a mapper, who could backport our campaign for L4D1, I'll do everything possible to help him.

If you're mapper and want to help us.
Just contact me via Steam.

do not know who you are, or if you own this, but regardless. I remember this campaign being for l4d1 in the first place, then it was haulted when l4d2 was released. It is the responsiblity of the author's choice what version you release and how it is. Since you obviously decided it to be for L4D2, you gave up on L4D1. Doubt anyone will help you now, too many people busy with l4d2, I have not seen a new campaign for l4d1 that goes up to par with Valve's campaigns. The only one that made that star was "I Hate Mountains" and no one is able to replicate its atmosphere as of yet.

Good Luck with your campaign.

I'm one of the creators of this campaign and let me clear that situation.
About a year ago during the development of the game, we faced a huge problem: map 4,5 and 6 were crashing almost every time during their loading when they were inside the vpk.
We've been looking for a solusion more than 3 month. We've been studing the engine, experimenting, removing parts of the maps, but nothing helped. So we basically we're running in circles for more than 3 month.
And then we ask ourself: "Should we abondoned our work, or should we try to port it to L4D2?" We tried our maps on L4D2 engine and problem was gone, so we desided to continue our work on campaign for L4D2.
Why I've started this thread?
Because I still love L4D, it's still my favorite game of a series. I still kinds want to release campaign for L4D, but I'm not sure will it be worth the time. So i want to know can i find mapper, who could help me and how many players will love to play full campaign on L4D.
Or should I forget about full version for L4D and just move on?

If you are only one person and you managed to do it for Left 4 Dead 2, you can port it for Left 4 Dead. But be advised, Valve doesn't care about the issues with the game. We are already aware of the bugs/problems that Left 4 Dead has, and we fix them ourselves. If you do not have the resources or the knowledge to fix it, then you can abandon all hope. No one is forcing you to care or try to make it for Left 4 Dead.

My strong opinion, you need other mappers from l4dmaps.com to help you out. Someone may know what the problem is as most times its very stupid yet common problems. I am no mapper, so I have no say in this. But, I do mod projects and I always try to fix them. Never giving up.

I think I know what the problems is and if so, I can fix that. I've done it for other campaigns as well.

My sentiments exactly. The L4D1 crowd is very small now unfortunately. Most people don't see a reason to get L4D1 since L4D2 conatins all of it's maps (which is actually inaccurate technically, but whatever.) I personally would like to see the campaign completed.

I'd say also post about it on some of the steam groups, such as these:

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/optizone_l4d
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/lHEROlDanny
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/l4d1lives
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/l4dcontentawareness
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/l4dkicksass
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RevivaloftheFittest


See if you can get more respsonses there.
100_o/o_f@ke 24 maj, 2013 @ 12:26am 
@Angel, Can you share your thoughts about why maps keep crashing and how to fix them?
I'm just wondering if we already tried this solution or is it something new.
Also thanks for the links!

No prob. The issue more than likely has to do with an update made to the game back in 2010, which unfotunately broke a lot of things in terms of custom content. And others just have to be done differently.. Add me. I'll explain what to look for.

While I won't comment on all this Hatfield and McCoy feud between L4D1 and L4D2...
Let me just be clear about my group (Content Awareness) since it was linked here...
It's for GENERAL L4D discussion... it doesn't lean more to one game over another...
My intent for it is to just discuss ANYTHING Left 4 Dead related people enjoy...
You can use it to share maps and mods you all enjoy or find people to join up with...
And yes, people ask for help with mapping (if there are any mappers in my group)...
Basically my intent for my group is sort of like a social gathering...
There isn't really one main focus.

Now back on topic... I do know "Morloc" is at least one mapper left in L4D1.
He created "Redemption"... perhaps try your luck contacting him.
Although he did the same with Redemption... he still works on L4D1 version.
There is also "Megadude" who created "The Grave Outdoors".
Maybe even "Keldorn" who created "Precinct 84"... but he isn't too thrilled with the tools.
You can maybe even find support from the "I Hate Mountains" team.
Hmm... who else might still be left... "Suicide Blitz" and "One 4 Nine" authors?
If you're REALLY desperate... there's the "L4D2onL4D1" project team, and RainingMetal.

Good luck with whatever happens, I hope this works out for you.
Like with "Death Aboard", I can remember this from long before it was ever a VPK!

I wish I were a mapper so I could help out! Still, I know that my friends and I would LOVE to finally have this campaign for L4D! Thanks for asking!

Not to raise an agurment, but I don't really see a fued here in this topic concerning that. But now that you mention it, whether we like one game or the other or both, no one can deny that there are 3 or 4 crowds of people with this game. Those who only like l4d1. Those who only like l4d2. Those who like both games. And those who don't like either game. I know people from each of those crowds. It's all matter of personal taste.

But I do see where you're coming from. The whole thing is blown up out of proportion. But that doesn't change that there is a strong dislike (or even straight hate) towards the second game by a lot of people. I don't really see that same type of hate towards the first game, except by the people that don't like the series at all (I know a lot of resident evil fans that just can't stand either l4d 1 or 2). I have never seen a game in another franchise get no where near this much hate. And this particular topic is one that refuses to go away beacsue it remains the one most talked about topics in the series.

how u export l4d2 maps to l4d?
100_o/o_f@ke 27 maj, 2013 @ 11:45am 
@Manager, I haven't started to port them yet. Because I still need to find a mapper to help me.
But I've got an advice from my fellow, how to port them, i haven't tried it yet.
If it doesn't work i will ask "L4D2 to L4D" they how them manage to do that.
Anyway i have unfinished l4d1 maps, so we can just add missing entities, same as in l4d2, but it will take longer time.

L4D2onL4D1 Team hasn't done anything for over 6 months, nor have the posted comments, or anything. Only Bindal is online and he just roams around these discussions forums bashing down moded servers. Really have no faith in the L4D2onL4D1 Team anymore since they kept us in the blue for so long. I was really hoping to see the maps on l4d1.
