Getting tired of "Server is forcing consistancy"
EVERY time steam updates, the game, even on single player says:
"The server is forcing consistancy for: ____"

Im getting tired of this crap.

How many mods do you have? I've got a bunch and never had this problem, but it's usually what seems to cause it.

I usually only have this problem when I delete my addonlist.txt to refresh it.

Only mods are campaigns. Never had issues with those before. The particular file, ALWAYS is "Boomette".

Its extremely annoying. Good thing im selling my PC soon or else i would be ranting.

Any maps with custom si can cause this

Move that file to your desktop,exit steam,start steam again. Then start l4d2. Does it work now?

You come begging in a completely random topic for a copy of a game you wouldn't even play with the person that gave it to you..
Congrats on being the worst beggar I have ever seen.

Seconding this. Take out your campaigns and put them back one by one until you find the offender. I had the same issue with a custom campaign.

Dewd- you ARE ranting. I'd be a fool not to point out something so transparent.

But it's cool, we've all been there. I had the same Boomette problem. Remove the campaign that has her in it, "Life's a Beach".

Then it will say it forces consistency for the hunter, then it will say smoker- then you realize you just shouldn't use too many different campaigns/mods with too many special common infected.

Hope it all works out for you.

mine says like model/infected/boomette.mdl i didnt install an addon like that p.s its crap

My friend and I were both having the same problem, and after some experimentation, it turns out that the servers seem to be enforcing consistency only for files related to special infected. We've both got scores of character, weapon, and other miscellaneous mods, and we can play using them just fine. Hopefully Vale addresses this issue soon.

Hosting locally? Set sv_consistency to 0. Not hosting locally? Better disable all infected skins, because you'll probably be kicked when your infected files don't match the server.

When/if Valve disables addons for competitive modes, I see no reason to keep the sv_consistency command around. It's only misused now instead of being helpful.

What issue? You say that like it's a bug. It's by design to eliminate survivors gaining an unfair advantage due to SI mods in Versus.

Ironic that it does that because of versus. Because last i knew versus was unfair period. Constant ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ kicking people like they think they own the server.
