It was done in hopes of avoiding any conflict with Valve's IP as we are going to be up on Greenlight very soon. Hopefully you get used to it!

can someone help me out, please? I downloaded this via the mirror link, put the Lambda Wars folder from the zip file into my Sourcemods folder, and whenever I go to click "play" on Steam, it gives me an error saying I'm "missing executable". What does this mean, and how do I fix it?

Make sure you own Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and have Alien Swarm installed.

Also, I tried using Desura for the first time, and when I tried installing, it crashed, and now, whenever I log into Desura, it immediately crashes...

You can try to put Desura in compatibility mode "XP Service Pack 3".

Tengo entendido que solo necesitas Alien Swarm en Steam y creo que Source SDK (no se cual) pero seguramente cuando intentes iniciar el juego si no tienes el SDK indicado debería de comenzar a descargarlo automaticamente.

Check your game installation (Lambda Wars and Alien Swarm). Also in some cases where antivirus software block the interface, because it's mostly made in HTML.
