Trouble playing custom mods with friends?
Is it only me, or is anyone having trouble playing custom mods with friends? I mean the campaigns that you install from the Workshop, like Left 4 Mario, or something like that. I always put it at Official Dedicated, then after launch, it says "Unable to find an official dedicated server" or something like that, asks me to switch to Best Available, then says the same thing, until I'm at "Local Server Dedicated" and nobody wants that, way too much lag.

Is there another way to play custom campaigns with friends? Do I have to install them from someplace else? Please give solutions ^^

Not sure, I always get my mods from L4Dmaps.com, I never have any issues. The Workshop is far more glitchy for me.

Some servers don't host certain maps anymore or it could be the version of the one you have downloaded from the workshop isn't current with the new one that is out there.

I download all of my maps from L4DMaps for reasons of simplicity (not to be confused with convenience), so I have no idea how many servers run Workshop versions of existing maps/campaigns. I can tell you Official Dedicated servers will not have custom maps on them, as featured community campaigns are no longer supported by Valve.

For old campaigns such as Left 4 Mario (the Workshop ports are probably not very official), you would probably want a manually downloaded version, as any servers that run it are likely to have that over the Workshop files.
