Left4Dead2 Australian gore fix :)

It's a well known fact now that L4D2 is being completely gimped in Australia, and those buying a copy for their Xbox360 are pretty much screwed unless they want to import. Luckily for us PC users we have the luxury of modders and programmers who take the time to find out how the game works so they can mess around with it.

Through one particular users meddling, he found a way to easily enable the gore in the censored version of the game. The process consists of editing 1 character in 2 files, and launching the game from the actual .exe, and not the Steam shortcut.

Bada-bing, bada-boom. Here's my conception of the changes you will see...

Most of you have probably already googled this, but for those who just haven't thought about it, or for those who for some reason don't know the demo is out on November 3rd, it doesn't get much simpler than this:


Enabling gore in the censored Aussie versions of the L4D2 demo is as easy as editing 1 character in 2 text files:

Change the app id 590 to 510 in these two files:

Save them and run the left4dead2.exe executable directly (not through steam icon/games list). This should be located in a directory like C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2 demo, just like the first file above.

Your status will say that you're playing "Left 4 Dead Dedicated Server", but the L4D2 Demo will start and you'll be able to play with gore enabled (no more disappearing zombies, more blood, decapitations/dismemberment, splatter on the screen, etc.!)

You will also still be able to start lobbies, invite friends and join games in progress on servers.


The images are a little large, so you'll have to save them or drag them to a new tab. But it works! So you can happily enjoy the uncensored version of the L4D2 demo :D I hope to see you all in the parish!
