Problem with skins/map from workshop (not appear in-game)
Hi there

A simple problem. I bought l4d2 some month ago, on a other computer. I've re-downloaded it with my actual pc.

But all the workshop files i subscribed, are still set as subscribed but id wasnt downloaded on my computer, because ingame are actually for me the "originals" skins.

On my c:/xxx/left4dead2/addons, i only have the workshop folder, and inside of it only the jpegs of the skin i subscribed.

I also tryed to add some new maps, but it didnt worked.

How can i fix it, to be able downloading some more skins?

Thanks, best regards

Just unsubsribe for them then resubscribe unless you have a whole bunch and don't want it to take forever... In that case just copy paste them from the L4D2 addon files in your program files.

Well ill try that way unsubscribe/resuscribe.. but as i said i have noting on the addon OR wokshop folder, and the new items i subscrived do not even download too! the only way would to down them manually from a non steam link but im very lasy to do it...

Okay ive fixed it out. Idk what of those steps helped, but ill release this for all the ones having this problem and couldnt fix it.
I unsubscibed to all the skin i was on. (but i kept them on some chromes pages to get it quick back and not searching em back for ages)
Ive reinstalled the game (from steam ive delet local data)
Then i reinstalled
i launched l4d, went to Extra, and then i clicked on browse workshop.
So still from the in-game navigator, i've subscribed to a new skin, and miracle, it appeared on the Extra stuffs. I did 2-3 other skins from the in-game browser and then switched to chrome and added all the reast.

I figured out that when it load some stuffs, maps for exemple, all stuff disapear from the extra folder, and then u got to uncheck the skins u dont want use or the one in conflict.

If it does like, i waited till it finish the DL, and then restarted the game and all came back, sometime hd to relaunch 2-3 the game

Hope it will help
