the problem i keep getting with my L4D2 is that it keeps minimising itself to tray every 1/2 hour or so, no matter what im doing in the game :( anyone elese get this problem or know how to stop it? its really anoying when youre fighting of a horde then all of a sudden youre staring at the windows background.
other than that i think its a big improvment on the original

i've had that bug since the first game, but for me it always happens when i right click and turn to the right very fast. basically it's like windows thinks my mouse is going "off the screen" because i'm moving it too fast to the right, so it thinks i've clicked on my desktop and minimises the game. if that's nothing like what you're getting then ignore me, but i feel your pain either way :P

You guys tried playing in windowed (no border) mode? It might help

Is it just me or is the "Swamp Fever" campaign horribly hard? :o

The director seems a lot more frequent and random. I actually got ravaged by a Charger and Spitter in a tiny stair well. I was downed and the AI is as always pretty Duurrrrrrrr so they couldn't work out how to revive me and just stood in the acid and all died.

Finished playing this today with the help of a few people!

The variety of the levels is immense. I was impressed with hard rain especially, it seemed a novel idea to do what it did. the melee weapons are awesome, the guitar just rocks.

definitely worth buying.

Hard rain is a nice map; decent atmosphere. I've only been fucking around on normal with some friends who aren't too good so so far I find it exceptionally easy. new weapons are decent, I like that there is more variety now - although for clearance I still find the shotty to be overpowered compared to everything else.
Realism mode is very good fun I've found. Much harder, makes the game seem far more realistic. As for the new horde - jockey is currently too slow. Chargers can be a pain but 1v1 they don't stand a chance when a simple side step fucks them over. Spitter is good as along with the charger it helps to stop people hiding in closets (although there aren't really any closets now).

Decent game so far; I just need to up the difficulty as going from expert in l4d to normal in l4d2 is well, child's play. it is fun though to just not have to think

Ive had a few problems with l4d 2 the day it was released i played it and got 3 normal achivements and completed 2 of the maps the swamp fever and the hard rain campaign. then the l4d 2 update came out i went back into to game a couple of days later and bang all my achivements had gone according to the achivements board i had none.

i was extremly annoyed, i dont know if anyone else has had this problem but i got charged on swamp fever and he knocked me into the water and i was like bobbing like a apple i couldnt move at all so had to quit out and start again, then i got charged again on hard rain and got knocked into a post same problem couldnt move was stuck on a body and a post so had to quit out again. and this was after i lost my achivements the 1st time so did the 2 campaigns i knew i could complete so i got them back and ended up getting stuck in water it sucks.

Anyone else had that problem or knows why it happens.

Yeah seen that bug a few times and on other maps too. Did a campaign with my mate who got hit and we just had to go on without him. Seems to be a fair few of these bugs lying around.

If you get stuck then you only have to jump and crouch alot, then most of the time you will get "teleported"

I've also been having issues with the achievements. At one point it said in game that I had 22 but on my profile it said 11. Now it says 33 on my profile and 25 in game
