Scavenge mode problem
Myself and a friend wanted to play scavenge today, but nether of us could play it.

We used a "standard" map. That is - one which is installed and IS NOT an add-on.

And yet, every time we try to make a server it asks us to download an add-on which simply redirects to the store.steampowered.com webpage without anything to actually download.

I am confused here. Is this mode broaken or what? Because we used an existing map which should not require any add-ons.

About a half-year ago or so we played scavenge in this exact way and it worked just fine. My installation/computer have not changed since then.

What now?

Well, have you tried reinstalling or verifying the game files? Ask your friend to do the same...
And tell me, do you use any mods of some sort? If yes, how long have you been using them? If just recently, it's probably your mods causing it, since we all know that bugs/glitches are very unpredictable and can be caused by simple things that we least expect...

No mods of any kind. 100% normal steam installation.
Yes, all files are valid.

What makes this peculiar is that I installed l4d2 like 2 years ago. My friend about two weeks ago and we both have the same issue. He runs win 7 and I run win vista. Nothing about our PC's hardware is the same ether.

I'm thinking maybe it some kind of cache issue? I remember there being a command to rebuild sound cache via console. I've tried looking up if there is one for maps, but can't seem to find anything : P.

BTW, with console command "map <mapname> +mode scavenge" the game loads, but we can't connect to each other normally or through "connect" command.

Not sure what else to try.

Survival also doesn't work, same problem as scavenge.

Same problem. I tried reinstalling, but nothing changed. I asked my friend without this problem to make a lobby and I can't connect to it. I don't use any mods or something else. Have you found any solution?
Sorry for my english

Same problem here. Mutation doesn't work either, same load dlc crap message. And not using any mods at all. Around September/October 2012 period that happened after a patch, before that all above mentioned worked just fine.

Guys removing the everything in the mods folder did it for me, Seems like you have a different issue then
