Anyway, I'm a tiny bit disappointed with L4D, finally got to try the demo today and it's sort of a "meh"

First of all Valve's dedicated servers are slow as my turd producing sessions. I'm thinking it's 150ms ping at best.

Second, the zombie rushes are scripted in it seems, making a second run through quite damn boring as you know when to expect it.

Also noclip on teammates is pretty retarded here, I think. Given the fact it's a total co-op and you're supposed to work together and have it be a "real" zombie apoc simulation. It's not real when you can walk straight through your team mate.

Hopefully the additional maps and weapons will compensate for all that

The zombie rushes aren't scripted, with the exception of the car alarm going off, and opening up the door thing in the second level. There are times when I've been rushed by zombies at the same time in a level, but there have been times when it didn't happen there.

I think they happen when you attempt to leave an area without properly clearing it

well, that's what it has seemed like for me

Its a command.

its z_spawn zombiemob or something of that nature. Type it in console a couple of times and you instantly have over 200 zombies rushing at you. Tons of fun when just fooling around.

I am returned to the Download Demo (Steam) screen.

If I r-click and open in another window, a blank page loads with the address: steam://install/530.

Nothing happens
Yeah, the download link in the emails doesn't work. Just open up your Steam and go to the games tab. At the bottom there will be an option to "activate a product on Steam". It's pretty self explanatory from there.

Slow servers by valve only happened cause no one was hosting and I think valve wasn't expecting a load that big cause they work fine now!
I have played through many times maybe your problem is your playing too easy.. i only play on expert cause it'sthe most fun! the tanks the witches! awesome! and if there is a zombie rush at the same time it's mostly from a different area or something is different!

I strongly recommend you only play expert! That's if you can handle it!
