No, it’s not a joke, and no, we don’t really hate mountains.
“I Hate Mountains” is the name of a Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 campaign made by three French friends. Be aware that this campaign is built the Valve way, we are not trying to revolutionize anything, we just want to provide more content to this awesome game. The campaign is divided into five different maps, just like Valve did with their own campaigns in Left 4 Dead 1. The difference is that ours is entirely nature-oriented, there’s only a few building and most of the action takes place in outdoor environments, which is a challenge to build in itself. We also focused our development on offering a better re-playability by providing several long alternate paths in the levels that can totally change the way you play it.

This is it! No, we ain't speaking about the Michael Jackson post-mortem movie but about the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains subtly dubbed I Hate Mountains 2! We are hereby releasing the 1.2 version of both Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2 versions of the campaign.

It certainly took time, almost 8 months... At the beginning, we honestly thought this port would be a piece of cake, but we just couldn't figure how difficult it would be and how life would change for each of us following the release of the first version. Between missing content, broken features, crashes and unexplainable issues, we were really this close to give up during these last months.

I Hate Mountains 2 Poster

To be entirely honest, the 1.2 version for Left 4 Dead 1 was already finished for a few months (since august 2010 to be precise), but due to a huge lack of motivation (we're working on it for over 2 years now) and Nicolas' departure who decided to move and directly hate mountains in Canada, we had almost stopped the Left 4 Dead 2 port. But finally, we decided to keep going on when a Polycount manager asked for an interview and fresh news about it. We realized that some people were still waiting for the Left 4 Dead 2 version and we didn't want to disappoint them.

We worked hard on it and we managed to fix everything we could. But despite all our efforts, some minor issues remain unsolvable as of today. Those are actually listed on the I Hate Mountains forums and in the README.txt file included in the download. But you should still be able to play the Left 4 Dead 2 version in quite an optimal way compared to what we thought would be achievable. We really spent a lot of time to test the campaign with a fellow French gaming team which allowed us to fix plenty of unusual and rare exploits.

Finally, You should keep in mind that this new version of I Hate Mountains is really an exact port of the Left 4 Dead 1 version. We didn't spend much time tweaking the maps with the new available assets, but above all we didn't change our specific art direction (it's still dark). By the way, we thank Valve for the last DLC for both games that allowed us to use the old survivors in Left 4 Dead 2 and to preserve the true spirit of the campaign.

We hope you will enjoy I Hate Mountains again, be it with the updated Left 4 Dead 1 version or the new Left 4 Dead 2 one with all the features and improvements of the second game. You can enjoy it right know on this friendly French server: Left4dead2 'playersfactory'

It's finally time for us to think about other things and return to our regular lives. Thank you for your support during these last two years and keep an eye open for more in an highly hypothetical future... :D

Awesome mod, I can't wait to play it.

I know this is trivial, but I must point it out because the rest is done so perfectly.
On the poster for the campaign, the lighting of BIll is reversed compared to everyone else, which is the tell that the pictures were just cut and pasted from the official posters. If you swap him out for a pic of Bill with light on the right side thenit'd make it look just that little bit more pro.

I'm guessing this campaign wasn't really made for Versus, was it? The Finale is kind of broken in versus mode - rather than add points incrementally for the length of time survived, it only adds points for how close a player is to the docks. Makes it a real pain in the *** as an infected player. :\

It's a shame, too. Once you get in to playing Versus mode, it's pretty much the best thing about Left4Dead.

Agreed about Versus being the best mode, but don't forget even Valve themselves screw up the scoring system, where it's distance rather than time-based in the finale. Dead Air had it, Blood Harvest had it, pretty sure Death Toll had it too.

valve should add your maps to the offical map pool
maybe you could ask them about that
i mean your maps look like the offical ones or even better
also its very balanced ; the maps are not too long or too short
they look original and have there own style
and its made for both titels
please ask them about valve would be stupid to say no
this is one of the best l4d chapters if not the best one
