Default L4D2 crashes. :(

Advertisement

Hi everybody!

I am having this annoying problem with my L4D2.
For some reason(s) it crashes to desktop.
It doesn't say anything.
Just closes.

It seems to happen more and more often.
Now i can't even finish a single round of scavange.
I have been able to atleast finish a campaign.

Anyone know why this is happening?
The one that solves it will get a cookie.

Crash Without Error.

Potential fix for crashes all together : Link
Thanks to : Bishop7

A lot of players are now getting a crash at random without an error message.

Possible fix : put -lv in your game runpath. Warning! This removes all the gore out of the game. Note, this does not solve the issue all together.
Possible fix 2 :
1. Close Steam if running
2. Go to your Steam\Steamapps folder
3. Delete left 4 dead 2 client.ncf
4. Delete client.dll from your steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\bin folder
5. Start Steam
6. Right click on L4D2 and validate the game
7. After validation is complete, right click on the game and choose Install
8. Let it redownload the file and install it properly
Credit goes out to : atrpunk08
Solved by valve : Unconfirmed.

This is from the L4D2 Forum on the Steam User's Forum.

Try it and see if it works.

You could always try the delete and reinstall game method if you have time on your hands.

Ok, it's back.

I have done the client thing three times now.
It's just temporary for me.
But the last time it crashed (10 secs ago) i got a windows popup saying "left4dead2.exe has stopped working".

Maybe I'm making some progress?

Just give us a full run down on your system specs. When did this start happening again?

Full run down?
What is a "full run down" exactly? xD
Well, I'll write whatever i can come up with.

PSU: some Sweex crap @ 650w.
GPU: XFX Radeon 4890 "xXx" edition
CPU: AMD athlon 64 X2 6000+
Mobo: ASUS M2N-E SLI
RAM: 4GB DDR2 800hz
Soundcard: Creative X-Fi Elite Pro (Isn't working and therefore not enabled.)
OS: Windows 7 ultimate x64 (Build 7600)
Screen: Philips PFL5603D
Speakers: Creative T3100

And it started 1 day after i did that "remove client blablabla".
But it has almost always been there.
But it didn't happen that frequently at first.
Now it happens several times everyday.
