Back To School campaign has suffered a lot - its development lasted more than three years, stopped and came to life several times, and even once started again from scratch. But now “Back To School v 1.0”  is finally available for download!

Release notes:

This is our first release for Left 4 Dead 2, so please be forgiving. Probably there are some issues and bugs in this version, but do not despair, all of them will be fixed in the future.

You can discuss the campaign and leave your feedback on our  forum! You can help  fix bugs faster, if you contact us there and describe them in details!  Also you can suggest any of your ideas and improvement for campaign! We’ll implement the most useful and interesting ideas!

Campaign is available in two modes: coop and versus. Unfortunately “Marauder” mode is unavailable for now, because of the problems we have with it. This mode will be available in future releases.

Installation:

Before you install, please make sure you have the Steam Client installed along with Left 4 Dead 2. Also make sure the game has been launched at least once through Steam.

Extract bts_l4d2.zip. Now, all you need to do is to copy the campaign (vpk file)  here: ...\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\

Turn Game Instructor ON! Please!!!

For easy navigation and useful advices during the events we recommend turning on Game Instructor feature during the first few playthroughs.

To do that, go to Menu>Options>Multiplayer>Game Instructor and turn it on. Now Game Instructor is on (but you can turn it off anytime at the options).

Known issues and bugs:

  • Minor problem with bots’ navigation.
  • Performance issues in some locations.
  • Bear model (replaces gnome model) is currently broken, we're working on that.
  • Conflict with “Silent Hill L4D2” and “Vienna Calling 2”. Both of them contain file “soundscapes_manifest.txt” in vpk archive. This file causes wrong ambient sounds errors in many campaigns, including Back To School.
  • Conflict with "Better Blood Decals" and "Improved Blood Textures" add-ons. Conflict causes game crash. We’ll try to eliminate the cause of conflict in future.
  • Long loading time of campaign chapters (due to large and detail environments)

We recommend you to turn off campaigns that cause conflicts (Menu>Extras>Add-ons).

In case of game crash:

Very rarely, during playing Back To School campaign, Left 4 Dead 2 could crash (usually because of memory problems). This can occur for the following reasons:

  •  “Paged Pool Memory Available” in video options set on “High” while your graphic card has less than 512 Mb of memory. Set this option on “Low”.
  • “Multicore Rendering” is turn on. This can cause crashes on the old systems. Turn this option off.
  • Some other custom campaigns or add-ons may conflict with Back To School. Turn them off.
  • Large amount of installed add-ons can also cause crashes. Turn them off.

This looks amazing, I'm not sure why people aren't flooding in to download this. Give it some time, this needs to become popular. I have no doubt that it will.

Perfect Campaign. It's long, it's challenging, and most importantly, it's fun. Really nice campaign.

Anyone else got the game crashing every time a new level starts? I finish one chapter of the campaign, the second loads, but it freezes in the safe room (shows camera view, but no hud, no weapons), then the game crashes and I go back to the desktop. (I have checked, the regular campaigns work fine, and this is the only addon I have right now.)

Aside from that, THIS THING IS AWESOME!
