L4D2 crashing after intro due to workshop *solved* UPDATE - worskshop files not being downloaded correctly which causes the game to crash
Hey folks, ws having issues with L4D2 earlier, the game launched but as soon as the main menu came up the game crashed and steam became unresponsive so I was forced to terminate the process.
Found a solution by trial and error and apparently the Back to School mod is crashing the game. I unsuscribed and now the game works like a charm.
For the people that have the same problem but are not subscribed to Back to School try doing the following:
1.-Go to your add ons folder in L4D2
2.-Delete the whole workshop folder
3.-start the game and as soon as the main menu comes on go to add ons
4.-Take a good look at the bottom right corner of the screen where the names of your subscribed mods start showing.
5.-when a mod comes up and the game starts to stutter and eventually crash, then it more than likely that the mod is at fault.
6.-Unsubscribe the mod.
7.-Re-launch L4D2 and see if that fixed it
8.-If everything went good, then go the the mod that was causing the problem and leave a kind note to the developer of said mod so that they can check into whats causing the issue.
This is the method I used to find out that the Back to School mod was crashing my game. I really hope this can help more people in this situation so that they can enjoy this amazing game.
Dont be a troll/d*ck/a-hole on the game be patient and calm about your online teammates :)
