L4D Server.cfg

by on May.26, 2009, under Techie

I have 3 rock solid L4D servers now running. Below are the server.cfg I am running.

server.cfg from my I Hate EVERYTHING (loads CO-OP Campaign by default, but supports all 3 modes):

// end rcon settings

// L4D cvars
//sv_password “” // your server password. a pair of double quotes means it is not set and anyone can join
motd_enabled 1 //This enables or disables the message of the day.
z_difficulty hard //Server difficulty set to expert, settings can be changed in lobby
sv_steamgroup [CHANGEME] //will make your server show up on steam group servers list
