Persistent problem with server hosting
I'm posting this thread since I have been experiencing the same problem for almost a year now.

I love add-on campaign maps, and my absolute favorite is Questionable Ethics. The thing is, I can almost never host a game. First of all the only 2 hosting options that work while creating the game are: Best Available and Local Host.

The problem? Well, I CAN host locally, but 90% of the people that join will end up having a ping of 150~300, and of course causing them to leave. But whats driving me nuts is that if I choose Best Available it will keep loading forever. I have to CTR+ALT+DEL and shut down the left 4 dead process. Very RARELY, it will work. But as I said, I'm tired of trying to host the game 20 times for 1 to work. Can you help me?

Thank you.

Any ideas?

There's really nothing you can do. Add-on maps are only allowed to be hosted on official dedicated servers once in awhile and we recently had Warcelona as the map allowed on OD servers so it's gonna be some time until they let us suggest another one.

It's really a shame, I used to host this map in Best Available Dedicated option with no problems. Now, I can't.

if you have friends to play with you could just start a listen server through the console.

Hmm. I guess that would work to play with friends. Otherwise, I'm still screwed. But thanks for your answers.
