SECTION 1


So you want to play left 4 dead 2 online on Garena
First you need to download Garena http://www.garena.com/~client/

you need a working copy of left4dead   




ok first thing youll need to do is update your game to the latest version 
Current version is 2.0.8.3  on the 18/08/11
So i will presume that your game version will be 2077 (dont worry if you have a different version  i will explain how to update in SECTION 2)
so 2077 needs updating to the current version to do this you are going to have to update in order so start with 1 then 2 you know the rest

1 2077 - 2078 http://uploading.com/files/f4cf6591/SFK+Incremental+2077+-+2078.exe/ 
2 2078 - 2080 http://uploading.com/files/54m6415m/SFK+Incremental+2078+-+2080.exe/     
3 2080 - 2081 http://uploading.com/files/e21d3eec/SFK+Incremental+2080+-+2081.exe/
4 2081 - 2082 http://uploading.com/files/331ffmm3/SFK+Incremental+2081+-+2082.exe/
5 2082 - 2083 http://uploading.com/files/251a6881/SFK+Incremental+2082+-+2083.exe/
Ok your up to date but you still need to install the standalone patch (this is in essence a steam emulator or crack)
8  SFK Standalone Patch 7.1 http://uploading.com/files/a6aeb1ba/SFK+Standalone+7.1.exe/

ok you are up to date and patched for online play :) there are just a few things to do
You need to make sure you have Garena set up properly

Make sure you select left4dead2.exe in executable settings and -steam in Game Bootstrap Settings then press the update button , now you can start the game by pressing the Start Game button

SECTION 2   THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO DONT KNOW THERE GAME VERSION OR HAVE DOWNLOADED A DIFFERENT VERSION 
OK so you downloaded a different torrent or dont know your game version , first thing you need to know is your current version you can do this , you need to find your left 4 dead 2 folder and go inside you will see another folder called left4dead2 go inside here to here you will find a file called steam you can open it with notepad, once open look for your patch version , on the other hand if your game will start you can simply type version in the console to find your game version (to open console press f10 or ` the key to the left of 1)
now you know what version you have you can update, if your version is 2057 or over go back to SECTION 1



1 this file will update any lower game version to 2077 (there are two files to choose from one is a torrent file the other is a direct download)
torrent http://uploading.com/files/7c4bcm4b/Left+4+Dead+2+Master+Update+Torrent+BY+SFK.rar/
depositfiles http://depositfiles.com/en/files/esyaxlqf6

2 go to the first link in section 1  and start there     good luck =) 


thats it you are ready to play online check section 1 to see how to set up Garena properly


Here are some useful pictures  ;)

REMEMBER UPDATES COME OUT FREQUENTLY SO IF ONE DAY YOU GO TO PLAY AND YOU SEE ONLY A FEW SERVERS CHANCES ARE THERE HAS BEEN AN UPDATE, CHECK BACK HERE FOR UPDATES.  AFTER NEW UPDATE YOU NEED TO INSTALL NEW STANDALONE PATCH WHICH ALSO WILL BE HERE ;) HAPPY GAMING.

  3. ok when installing the standalone patch near the end it gives you the option to open REV.ini you can either re install the standalone patch or open the file yourself it can be found in the left 4 dead 2 folder
    once open (open with notepad) you will see this
    SteamClient = True

    SteamUser = REV

    [steamclient]
    PlayerName = SFK
    change PlayerName to the game you want in game then save the file ;)

    ?? strange do you type hostname"bla bla"
    if not wait till the game starts then go into console and write hostname"the name you want" and see if that works
    also make sure you all have matching version

    This is caused when they update the game current version is 2073 you can check by going into console and typing

    remember if you do update to install standalone patch

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when
    opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

  33. I want to know how to play L4D2 with people in the other countries' rooms
    because I am only able to play multiplayer in the Korean Rooms, but it is laggy since I live in Canada.
    Please tell me and let me know if there is a way to play multiplayer in South or North America rooms.

  34. Though they could never beat Capcom's Resident Evil Series, Valve corporation did gave them some competition with their Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 for sure. The first installment of this franchise was really awesome.
    Thank you for your hard work... All the best!
