Its possible it doesnt :S

Really fun evening - thanks to Caradir, Malt and Gunnarr for playing on our new server.



Gunnarr, I have no idea why you couldnt get back on.

I tried after with a straight connect ip address thingy and was ok :(

Yes, me neither. It's weird, I think I went through a bit of a rough connection patch there, since I had some lags on other servers as well, but after a while they got better and as I'm writing now, I'm still not able to connect back to the HoJ server. The weird thing is I can see it fine in the serverlist, and it even tells me I'll have a 112ms ping to the server, yet when trying to connect it apparently does 10 attempts then gives up.

Just to check:
- the password you gave me is all lowercase, right?
- how do I do a straight IP connect? Through steam? (servers > favorites > add server)

yes to the first question.

there isnt a way to add it to steam servers - that list doesnt include L4D servers (I checked just before I logged off steam).  There may be a way to add connection info to the l4d links properties, or create an autoexec file that is linked in the l4d shortcut properties and do it that way (jesus .cfg files take me back years to my quake 2 days ;))

try this in the console:

Type openserverbrowser
The server browser comes up, you can add your server to favorites with your ip address.
Then you can double click and put in the password to play.

Cant guarantee it will work though.  Looking here for ideas:

Weird. I just managed to connect again.
My hunch is that it was either password or connection related.
It could be the password, since when I managed to connect for the first time it gave me a password box with a [******] pre-entered, but it was the wrong password.
After reconnecting, putting in the right password, and entering successfully, then disconnecting to try again, the [*****} pre-entered password was the right one.

It could be the connection, since I tried to test this after trying to enter through the "join friends" option, and never being asked for the password.
So I tried to enter through Steam, entering the pw there, and it would still refuse to let me in.

I think it's fixed now, and I hope it'll stay fixed. I'm starting to get annoyed about not being able to play with you guys because of tech troubles.
When is the next evening of zombie massacre?  ;D

was a shame you had connection issues, all in all a fun evening, much better than playing it solo :)

I really enjoyed the game last night, it was the first time that I have played the game with anyone other then random people.

I've now sorted out my mic, so can use it next time, although if my wife is watching TV, I will be limited somewhat.

Was funny at the end as I had gone into the APC, then came back out onto the ramp to help and the tank thew a rock at me, which knocked me down.

I hope we can do it again soon.

Sorry for being so flakey tonight on L4D - combination of things.  I know have a tool which will change maps for us on the server when I ask it too :)  However L4D has to be on for me to do it.

One day Vavle will make something easy for once ;)

I shall be late on steam for some versus mode - in the middle of prepping for dinner. 

And I havent yet figured out how to switch our server to versus so we'll have to go public for that - but thats not really an issue :)

We got some done in the end :)  And even a little versus - that really does need 2 teams duking it out, rather than garry v me (with npcs to aid us on each side).

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
