Same problem. Maybe delete this whole ihatemountains.txt file, guys? Are you even there?

El Moroes says its because we did not sub in our browser and not steam directly but its still not working and other campaigns are doing this so its not his maps alone.

It seems it's because some other campaigns / items you are subscribed are using some elements which are also included in our package...so there are some conflicts. Try to deactivate these files when you want to play on IHM. I hope it will resolve your problems.

there is no real conflict when combining via vpk it goes away, so it really does not cause any problems ignoring the red it seems to be ok, must be something wierd in the latest patch ,, also all mutiple part maps from other modders comes up as red anyway this is with all other mods turned off as well.

OP and the first response are correct:

When making a multi-part mod for Left4Dead 2, all files should have unique names. Files not used by the game will cause spurious conflict messages, and the mods which contain these files will be marked in red within the game's mod manager.

This includes files which are purely informative and not used by the game, such as "About This Mod.txt" or licensing documents. If you really want to include informational files in VPKs, change the filenames to be unique, like: "About This Mod - 1 of 3", "About This Mod 2 of 3", ...

Additionally, mods created on Windows often have invisible files named "thumbs.db" which are created by Windows automatically. This happens you open a folder which containts images and have Thumbnails enabled. These files are not used by the game.

Perhaps it goes away when you combine the VPKs because duplicate files get merged.
