Hi, i have one problem, when i start campaign it says: Please Add Parameter -steam To Your Game Launch Properties, when i do that game starts, but after intro it crashes with no errors ,so i readed that to fix it i must do this:
Fix : In parameter add "-w 2014",will load game at 2014 resolution. when i do this it says again:Please Add Parameter -steam To Your Game Launch Properties. Here is picture how my "Target" looks
SEE IMAGE ABOVE (removed)
so what i must write in there to get it working?
The fact that you recieved the 'error' requesting you to add -steam to your target leads me to think you have either deleted the desktop shortcut created by the standalone patch or NOT installed it OR installed the wroing version (ie version 5 which is for game version 2062)
take the left 4 dead 2 folder OUT of the torrent folder and your downloads folder and into your Programms directory.
Update using ALL updates (2058-2059, 2059-2060 etc)
instal the Standalone Patch - current version 5 for game version 188.8.131.52
USE the desktop shortcut created by the standalone patch to start your game.
IF you still NEED to use -w 2014
the traget info should be something like this --->
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Left4Dead2\left4dead2.exe" -steam -console -w 2014
"C:\Program Files \Left4Dead2\left4dead2.exe" -steam -console -w 2014
(if non x86)
Just because you added -w 2014 you removed -steam at the time (?)
Before adding -w 2014, see if updateing, moving to a 'normal' place outside of torrent 2058 folder and using the shortcut created by the standalone patch (SFK Standalone 5) helps.
If it dosen't there is probably only 1 reason - corupt download, but this is VERY unlikely.
These updates ARE required
