new way to mod left 4 dead 2 v 2.0.7.0

hey...guy i find a weird way to mod left 4 dead 2 version 2.0.7.0 ... after many trial and fail. finally i got a solution to mod the left 4 dead 2 like changing the caracter name in "l4d360ui_english" and change anything you like whatsoever. i hope this post can help you.............

1)make sure you have the left 4 dead 2 version 2.0.7.0 and backup your "left4dead2" folder

2)download GCFScafe link http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=25 and extract the pak01_dir.vpk by click mouse 2 on "root" folder to desktop or anywhere (make sure it root folder)

3)merge all the extracted file inside the root folder into "left4dead2" folder inside your game directory the rename pak01_dir.vpk to pak01_dir.vpkbak (this file will be ignored)

4)run the game. if it working skip step 5,6,7. If NOT WORKING CONTINUE TO BELOW TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE!

4)to fix this problem you need to download the standalone patch 3.2 (L4D2SP 3.2) link http://www.mediafire.com/?r9gbvajvwsbq7oa and install it, use "revmu emulator!!" the run and you got this error message "unable to launge game because clien.dll is being used by other process"

5)to fix the problem run "L4D2 Control Panel" click next select "restore game setting" the tick on both "left 4 dead 2 custom start (emergency start) and restore config.cfg click next and finish.

6)start game if it work it a success.

7)install you custom content and enjoy your mod....like me

note: if you got this message "server is enforcing consistency for this file:File left4dead2/Pak01_dir.vpk was not found." while creating a game or play as single player

use this command to disable file consistency check "sv_consistency 0" then you should able to create game!

the addon vpk just working fine no need to extract them just put it into addon folder.

this is no a joke look to the attached picture, look closely it character name

tested on zoey mod tested on k-on mod

working perfectly......on windows 7 64bit and win xp 32bit

    So you're talking about extracting it ALL into the L4D2 Folder so the game reads the folder instead of the pak file? Why not just say that first? lol

    we all know since the sacrifice update we cannot change the name of character in left for dead 2 so this is the only way i think for now to modified the character name.

    what i mean here is file pak01_dir.vpk should be decompress but custom content like addon doesnt need to be decompress. just put the addon vpk into addon folder.

    Problem with that is that when you recompress the "modded" files, the file size is extremely large, making mod sharing impossible. It's easier just to make addon vpk's and only use the mods in custom servers.
