Left 4 Dead

Yeah, its such an awesome game, how is the pings in-game, does it appear to be prioritised traffic?

Played the XBox Live demo, and loved it.  Waiting until I can afford it but the online is meant to be a little bit good.
Oh, and it was cheap on Steam this weekend...

Yes, I bought it yesterday and successfully soiled myself as one of my colleagues nudged a car, setting the alarm off and causing one of those vomiting things to cover me in green goop.

@oplesrope - my steam ID is the same as my username, give me a shout if you fancy a go later on this evening (or indeed at any point). That goes for anyone else, too Smiley

Re: Left 4 Dead

played online last night - amazing game.  not a single hiccup all evening. 
we were playing the forest / farmhouse scenario.  i was killing it right up until the end when we were all making a mad dash for the transporter, after holding out for the previous 10 minutes in the farmhouse bathroom. everyone piled into the transport, not noticing that i was lagging behind - at which point I obviously get immobilised from out of the blue by a tank.  doors close on the transport and it zooms off without me.  lots of rofl'ing ensues.  best co-op game i've played yet.

Am I right in saying you've raised a Fault?  It looks like the tests have come back with no sign of  a problem at our end but some line errors are showing?  Looks like you'll need to do some diagnostics at your end to try and find out what's causing the problem.  Your ticket (and the faults wizard) should give you some ideas of things you'll need to test and our support pages http://portal.plus.net/support/broadband/troubleshooting/ should be of some help too.  Shout out if you hit a dead-end with your tests and we'll try to get you up and running asap.

Re: Left 4 Dead

Great game. Picked it up with TF2.
Pitty that L4D runs anywhere between 25 - 150 FPS...
TF2 also performs better in general than L4D.
it's that sporradic and it's less detailed than CoD5.
[Admitingly, on a now 'legacy' setup]
The redeeming factor is it's fun to play with Friends.
Jim,
