its beend oing that for me as well. it seems to have started today, it lets me play then randomly kicks me off. I know it's not my graphcs card etc. etc. and I odn't necessarily want to say it's from 8.1...

I don't know I took off all my mods and its still crashing. If any1 else has windows 8.1 and having these same problems please do tell I don't necessarily want to say thats the problem but gawd damn it started right after!

mine seems to have started after i updated adobe, i've had 8.1 for awhile is why i don't want to pin it on that. i might try looking into my update history from windows update.

Oh dear, I went to check adobe and I had the latest update so I started playing and not a half hour into the game it just plain crashed, no error message or anything, just stopped the game and brought me straight back to the desktop no sign of anything. So I am going to check the integrity of the cache since I am having troubles!
sharpiesniff Nov 20, 2013 @ 10:45pm 
but dude, even that doesn't make sense, right? i just verified the integrity but am now too discouraged to even try restarting a game. lemme know how it works out for you!

It's constantly crashing for me as well! It will sometimes crash before I join a game. Also it would crash during a game.. It has gotten really frustrating!

Ya we verified the cache and it seems to be working after that. Right click L4D2 then somewhere in properties it will give u the option to verify the cache files it will take about 20-30 min but it worked for us hopefully it works for u too! =)

Awesome! I just tried that and it's working now! Thank you! ^^

You said you downloaded windows 8. Well thats your problem your using a hacked or cracked version of windows 8. Cracked version are known to do that cause its the windows anti pircy causeing it so to fix it is to buy windows 8. But to be honest with you stick with windows 7 as its alot better for gaming as winblows 8 sucks for gaming.

@tanqueray who said anything about a cracked version of 8.1? the download is free from

I bought windows 8 for 40$ since I got a new computer! U may be right that windows 7 is better I just don't feel like reverting back to 7!

OK so i went to microsoft's website and this is what it says and i am copying and pasting it as it is seen on there website:
Current Windows 7 users: Breathe new life into your PC
with Windows 8.1. Download today, starting at $119.99
So its not free by any stretch.

Yea Windows 7 is more gaming friendly. Windows 8 was designed more for touch screens and for using social networks and not gaming well not for hard core 3d gaming but more for flash games on the web. But if i was you i would drop windows 8 like it was hot and go back to windows 7 that is what i would recommend for a more smoother gaming experince.

@tanqueray i guess i should have said that it's free pgrade for people that already had 8.0, which is my case. the game's been working for me since yesterday after the verified files.
i actually went back to 8.1 after having gone to windows 7 cause everyone was saying it was better for gaming than 8...i think i'm finding out it's not necessarily the case. i have an awesome machine and my graphics cards wouldn't kick into multi-core rendering because windows 7 wasn't telling it to. anywho, this thread is dead. problem solved.
