L4D Dead Before Dawn Mod

Left 4 Dead Mods announces the release of the Dead Before Dawn modification for Left 4 Dead that brings gameplay inspired by the Crossroads Mall in Dawn of the Dead to Valve's Zombie shooter. They offer the mod by bit torrent and have a download mirror listed, but it may be difficult to get through to the site at the moment. Thanks fearless.

Sorry. Just pissed at the amount of people who are to damned lazy to just dump a single folder into the addons folder for l4d and rebuild their sound cache.

To the end user, rebuilding a sound cache, then crashing your game and having to kill the process from the task manager just to install it is hardly a user friendly method to install a campaign. Doesn't really matter who's fault it is.

And especially when you have to jump through hoops for a campaign that is completely broken. Even getting all 5 maps to load for a game seems like a crapshoot. The campaign is absolutely plagued with bugs... scripting bugs, map glitches, clipping errors, server instability, client crashes, poor pathfinding (in fact, the AI is totally borked in this one). It's really not worth the trouble to play this in the current state.

There is much, much better custom content for the game out there already.

l4dmods.com keeps going up and down right now, so I'll copy the known mirrors here in case someone needs them.

I also noticed that they're now calling this release the 'first beta' of the campaign . To my knowledge, this was never mentioned even once prior to the release.
