L4D2 - mac - crashes every time on load
It didn't used to. Now, every time I start a game it crashes. The top of the stack is

pretty sure Macs and Steam are still a little buggy. I see problems with Mac and crashing in a lot of games.
Mainly posting this to bump to help fix your problem.

Thanks. The first thing usually people say is to verify the cache; I did that and it passed. Then I tried deleting the game completely and re-downloading it. That worked.
