Where can I download or buy this game Left 4 Dead 2?  You will have to buy it at the software steam. Steam offers much games. Type Left 4 Dead 2 in the search at steam and you will see the price and game. How can I manage the Left 4 Dead 2 server?  You can use rcon for managing it. Give the server your rcon password, look in the server.cfg After serverstart you can open your console ingame and write rcon_password “yourpassword” Now you are a server admin and can use some commands. If you want to have a list of all commands for the L4D2 console, you can look here: http://left4dead.wikia.com/wiki/Complete_list_of_console_commands Or you can use admin plugins for example Sourcemod. This is in our download area, too. How can I install Sourcemod and Metamod Source on my Left 4 Dead 2 Server?  First download Metamod-Source for your OS (windows or linux), download Sourcemod in our Left 4 Dead 2 area. Put sourcemod and metamod-source into your addon folder of Left 4 Dead 2. For example: left4dead2/left4dead2/addons At this path you would put the folders metamod and sourcemod there, which you have downloaded. Put the folder sourcemod (it´s in cgf folder of the download-file) into your cfg folder of Left 4 Dead 2. For example: /left4dead2/left4dead2/cfg , there you put the folder sourcemod It should be look like this at the end: left4dead2/left4dead2/cfg/sourcemod --> here are all files (sourcemod.cfg) It should work now! How can I use custom mods/maps for my Left 4 Dead 2 Server? Is it possible with fast download (redirect)?  It´s possible, I tried it, but gave it up. It has this reason: There are big files and no players want to wait for 10-15 minutes for the downloading, although the files are on a fastdownload automatic. I have read in the web, that the files use a redirect download service. So you don´t need a own fast download service for that. If you use smaller files as mods/maps, you can do it. Here you can check all our maps/mods to Left 4 Dead 2: http://www.l4d2.game-database.eu  Put your maps files (.bsp) into your serverpath: ../left4dead2/left4dead2/maps. Restart your server and it´s done! Can I host a own Left 4 Dead 2 gameserver at home or do I have to rent a gameserver at a provider?  If you want to host a gameserver at home, you must open these ports in your personal firewall (if you have once) and in your hardware firewall for example in your fritzbox. For getting on the fritzbox you must open the URL in your web browser: fritz.box or o2.box, if you are using o2 DSL/VDSL Open these ports: UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive (Game client traffic) UDP 27015 to 27030 inclusive (Typically Matchmaking and HLTV) TCP 27014 to 27050 inclusive (Steam downloads) UDP 4380 Dedicated or Listen Servers TCP 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port) Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat UDP 3478 (Outbound) UDP 4379 (Outbound) UDP 4380 (Outbound) If you want to host a 24/7 gameserver, it would be better to rent it at a gameserver provider. For example at these providers. They offers many server locations in europe, asia, USA and so on. Gameservers.com Gamed.de NGZ-Server.de
