Default Re: Left for dead demo thread

This is noob question but i will ask anyway. If you have a computer gaming headset that has 2 plugs (mic and headphone) where are you supposed to hear the other players talking? I connected only the mic and other people cant hear me in l4d nor can i hear them(although the game recognizes it in the options test). I connected both headphone and mic and all i get is the sound of the game. Is there an arrangement possible like xbox live where you hear the players and talk to them from the headset but hear the game sound from other speakers? Where should i connect the headphone jack in order to hear only them as i want game sound to come out from my speakers? thanks in advance guys.

You can, but you'll need 2 soundcards or a USB headset.

Keep in mind there is a versus mode as well, which should be a riot once the full game gets released. Also, you can expect a good amount of mods and DLC to come. Finally, I personally am interested in trying out the split-screen with a friend. I have a big widescreen TV and a spare x360 controller, so it should be great

My sentiments exactly.
IMO aiming via crosshair seems a bit out of time as well. Don't like that dead bodies vanish immediately. HL graphics engine is getting old, too.
I'll pass on this.

The game is definitely a nice change of pace. Sure it's a little mindless but the Co-Op makes the difference. I'm really enjoying the demo, I just hope that they get their act together with regards to servers, lag is killer in this game.

I just leave the pink (mic) connection plugged in, the other is green i think which is for the ear pieces. leaving it out should allow you too hear all sounds including voices through your speakers. i dont think it works the other way if you just want to hear voices through the headset only. its either all or nothing.

Hmm, feels like Serious Sam except more enclosed, with less variety. I'll probably give it another shot in case my first impression was bogus, but at this point I don't see myself spending $50 on it. Just not interested enough in the coop to make up for the (so far) shallow gameplay.

I love the movie poster loading screen though.

Anyone else notice that the demo says "4.5 days left" in the game list?

Is the demo actually going to expire!?

Yes, once the game is released, no more demo. Kinda weird if you ask me but oh well, I've already purchased the full game!

^ must be because they want to use the servers for the full game instead of just using them for the demo.

Anyway Very Very fun. The only thing is that even though its the first level and a demo it seems way too easy on med and advance. The only time that I died was on Expert and made it a struggle to get to the safe houses. But very fun game play.
