Problem launching L4D2
For whatever reason, the game freezes on the "Source" screen when I start it up and I cannot play the game. That screen is the farthest I have ever gotten. Bought the game on the first day of the big sale and havent found the solution yet. I went through support when I first found the problem but I havent gotten a response yet and I was wondering if anyone could help me.

Intro Movie wont' play on your PC for some reason.
You can skip the movies by putting:
-novid
in the startup launch options.

However you may have problems when joining pnion servers, if -novid gets you into the main menu.

I'd also recommend updating your graphics card drivers, if they're not up to date. This problem used to happen to me all the time when I bought my new computer, but went away after a driver update.

first option is the novid command, second option is uninstalling your ♥♥♥♥ty codecs you installed
