Scripts not playing/missing?
So while playing some of the maps, I noticed that, suddenly, some of the scripts aren't playing correctly. Like, The Church event in Death Toll, the finale in Dead Air... I honestly haven't messed with anything beyond simply adding some workshop mods, so does anyone possibly have any suggestions on this?

Scripts as in weapon scripts? Player talkers? Sound scripts? Cvars?

I don't know what they're specifically called, but I did say what they were before: Trying to get into the saferoom at the church in Death Toll, and activating the finale in Dead Air. None of those play, it's just hit 'E' and wait to hit it again.

And as I've just discovered from playing through it again, activing the finale/summoning a rescue in Death Toll also doesn't play the script.

Also, I've verified my game cache for l4d2 twice, and each time two files were redownloaded, however this didn't solve the issue either time I did it. :/

Well since you are having issues with Death Toll and Dead Air, probably the two files needing validation belong to these Campaigns. Best bet is to do a clean reinstall:

1. Backup mods
2. Delete local content - steam library menu
3. Go to steam>steamapps>common and delete the entire left 4 dead 2 folder

Good luck

hm. what will that do for achievements/hours played thus far/workshop mods?

Well it won't delete your achievements, or your subscribed mods (you will have to redownload them though), all it does it completely wipe Left 4 Dead 2 so you have a fresh reinstall. (Be sure to delete the folder AFTER you "delete local content" from right click on Left 4 Dead 2 in steam library)

okay, i just wanted to be sure before i went and did something. thanks!

okay, i uninstalled and deleted the folder, reinstalled, but... the scripts /still/ aren't playing. :/ i just ran through death toll to test, but nothing was fixed for the campaign.

Damn, should work as this is a clean reinstall and basically resets your game. So now we narrowed it down that its not a problem with your game...maybe I'm not interpreting it right, what is the problem exactly? Script as in the finale never occurs? Or like does the horde not come? Rescue never arrives?

It fixed the issues I had with Dead Air for sure, but with Death Toll, I don't hear the radio, I don't hear the guy in the church and conversation that's supposed to take place for both. :/

Well ever since the newest Left 4 Dead 2 patch, the Left 4 Dead 1 characters had some voice script errors. Try it yourself, Bill no longer says "Be careful" on the vocalize command menu. It didn't think it would be so bad that campaign scripts don't work anymore.

when was this, exactly? i don't think i've ever had this kind of issue before, and i play pretty frequently :|a

I believe it was like maybe 3 weeks ago, noticed it after the workshop got implemented.
hoshi Feb 28, 2013 @ 7:16pm 
ahhh, okay. yeah, you wouldn't think that something would effect actual story scripts like that :/ a shame that there doesn't seem to be a fix for it though, but at least one of the issues were fixed! :)
