Uncut to Cut.
Basically, I live in Australia and I downloaded the Free Weekend version. To my surprise, everything was uncut and there was sweet, sweet decapitation. I then bought the full version, however, when I began playing everything was censored again. This is very irritating as it feels as if I have been lied to (even though it did say Low Violence version).
What is their justification for releasing the FREE uncut version, then when we purchase the game, it becomes censored to hell?
What I want to know now, is how do I get the uncut version? What files do I have to change? Or perhaps I should just email Valve themselves. What do you guys think?

The exact same thing happened to me I pre-loaded the Free to play weekend and my version of the game was uncut and fantastic, this incentive made me purchase L4D2 and now I have the cut low violence version :'( In posting this I hope L4D2 gets a reclassification cause Australia R18+ legislation passed so Valve could patch the full version to Australian consumers by January 1 2013.

This is easy to circumvent. Just Google it! ;)

I sure hope so. I contacted Valve and explained my situation, but hopefully they will re-release it. I did some digging and apparently updates and patches go past the Classifications board, which is what happened with GTA IV (back in 2008 a patch uncensored the game). I don't mind waiting until January 1st if it means us legitmately getting gore.

The same in Germany. You can make it uncut. But there is no way to play online with others which have the normal uncut version. Nothing will work. Bye Bye 5€, Bye Bye Steam-Store. The first and the last order!

This is ridiculous. I do know getting riled up over 'gore' isn't the best thing to argue about, but it takes so much away from the gameplay experience. The censored version still has an MA15+ rating, when IMO it deserves an M15+. I just hope something happens so we can finally play the uncut version; we're not babies. Again, if we actually do get a patch, I'll be satisfied. I just want some sort of confirmation.

It's no fun at all to play it cut. A wasting of time and money. But hey, It's the way to playing games now! STEAM decides now how to play games. Even if you buy the uncut version as a adult, it's going to be cut, in those countries like Germany or Australia when you use STEAM. I won't convolute my games with STEAM anymore and divest my already installed games from this hoax.

If someone could gift me a copy of L4D2 (not from Australia or Germany) I will gladly pay you back and I will love you longtime.

It won't work. Because the game will be overwritten wenn STEAM see your IP coming from Australia.
Zokuno 29. loka, 2012 7.46 
From what I've read it does work. Even if it doesn't I'll still have the game and I will accept defeat.

In Germany it's exactly the same.
No way to make it uncut...

Well that just sucks.

Whut? I just played the free weekend version and thought: man, that's a lot of blood, I could buy that. If I went to uncensored, that would just suck. However, I thought games gifted from outside the censor zone would remain uncut. If not, try choosing a server outside Censoria to download from when you got gifted the uncut version. I have F.E.A.R. uncut.

I tried buying it from another Steam store but with no love. It picks up on your credit card/PayPal details. It seems the only way is to get it gifted :(

Problem solved. Forget about changing numbers. Just Download the Uncutpatch: Left4Uncut_ver21. Start this, then Start the game in the STEAM-Software, not the exe. Everythink works finde now :)
