Deathcraft II is notorious for breaking other custom campaigns. I hear it's wise to keep Deathcraft disabled unless you actually want to play it.

I believe it has something to do with the EMS/latest update. I hear the fix for this is to try having only one addon map/campaign active at one time. I have not tested this.

Yeah, it's definitely not Deathcraft. I don't have that installed when the following happened a few days ago:

*All the .vpk's in the workshop folder deleted and started to redownload themselves.
*The multi-vpk campaign started complaining about conflicts, namely with their mission files.

Upon further inspection, I noticed that the multi-vpk campaigns only have a single mission file each, so I concluded that the game was being paranoid over nothing. As long as any two vpk's from the same campaign are enabled, they would turn red for file conflict.

Beside L4D2/Workshop randomly deleting and redownloading my subscribed stuff, this is one of the most frustrating workshop woes I've experienced, right next to the downloads being completed prematurely. :/

ok...thanks catblender...that sorta clears it up...not the first time I've had to deal with valve related issues for d/l's...updates for half-life used to take like nine hours on dial-up connections, and they would have one every two days, and if you missed one...it took twice as long...it would be better if the people that made maps would just make them all one file, with a single Pak file to cover problems like this...at least, that's what I learned years ago with worldcraft...

Workshop file size limitations make a single campaign download difficult. I personally manually install whole campaigns from L4DMaps, I'd suggest learning to do that.

Yeah, I've decided to go back to l4dmaps.com instead of using the workshop. Right now, it's being more frustrating than helpful to me. Not to mention that I can't even use the workshop addons when I'm in offline mode without having to move the .vpk's to the main addon folder.
