So many have requested it, and so many agree, the beta of l4d has some features that would have been best left in the game, and not removed. The goal of this mod is to bring back the best of the beta into a Left 4 Dead modification.

The Beta Mercy Hospital Apartments featured things such as much bumpier
street texture bump mapping, it rained everywhere, the tarp did not fly
away, a darker, more ambient feel with limited to no fog, more trashed
areas, a bigger moon which lit the street, and much more. I've been
using beta videos as references for the conversion. After the
apartments are done, I will work on the subway. Plans for the first
release are all 5 of the Mercy Hospital maps (Hell Hospital) with beta
styles and layouts.
Wish me luck, and don't forget to add the mod to your mod watch list.

Sorry, I must admit, I haven't really worked much at all on the beta mod in a while.
This is due to my work on another mod, along with school work, and just plain being lazy.
I apologize for this, as many people have been looking forward to even the slightest media release, and I have done nothing about it. So, in an effort to make you happy, and not further shatter your hopes and dreams, I will begin work on the mod again. I recently received someone's work that they did mapping all of the beta of mercy hospital, based mainly off of the earlier versions before valve got their grubby hands on it. This mapper, spent about a crazy obsessed month of constant mapping that they did around 5 months ago or so. I will work on incorporating those into my beta versions, and try to get new media out as soon as possible.
Sorry for any inconveniences, oh and I'm asking anyone who knows how to compile view models and other models, or who can, or have made beta versions of the character models, or even skins or sounds and want them to possibly be in the first release of this mod, to please contact me.

Thanks, Left 4 Dead Beta mod leader.

I've been working on the apartments and have compiled, but I seem to get errors when I am loading the map and it never ends up finishing the loading process...

I am currently working on the Mercy Hospital Apartments, getting them to look like the beta. Screenshots coming soon!

In case anyone didn't know, a section of the 2013 Left 4 Dead Official team released varying versions of all of the pre-valve/pre-release/Beta Survivor character models after the community kept asking about them for over 4.5 years, they finally did a little bit. OFFICIAL POST:

Seeing as how this is pretty much dead in the water. To everyone who is still hoping for some beta stuff, this guy on L4DMaps is making the beta maps.

I just noticed that doom4you is still working on his beta maps, and it looks like he'll be done soon. At least someone is going to finish what they started. Thanks doom4you!

I might work on this mod again someday, but I a lost a lot of interest, and a lot of my work on The Apartment map. What I could salvage I combined with our other developer's apartment map and it looks good, perhaps someday I can finish the "No Mercy" chapter, and release it using the new addons feature they implemented, which would solve a lot of problems we were wondering how we would fix, such as model replacements.
