L4D2 for Aussie Kids
If you own the uncut version of the game and want to experience first hand what the unfortunate majority of the Australian gamers will experience on L4D2:

- From your STEAM games browser right-click Left 4 Dead 2 Demo > Properties
- Click the "Set Launch Options" button
- type -lv and click OK (-lv = low violence)
- Start the game and cringe as you see disappearing corpses instead of blood, guts and glory.

The Australian Version Thread

The (overly)censored version of L4D2 is set to be released in Australia this version removes key features in the game not allowing the Australian Community to access the full game more like half of it.

This version of L4D2 came about due to the RC(refused classification) of the original uncut version to the OFLC due to there being no R18+ rating one side to the problem.

The Content

So you may think the only content removed was the visual content you are WRONG!

Visual Content Removed:
Blood Spatter(greatly minimised)
Bodies Disappear
NO GORE AT ALL

An Album showing this content can be seen here<<ImageShack Link

Now for something that CHANGES GAMEPLAY:
Uncommon Infected(UCI) completely removed(Riot Cop i.e Bulletproof Zombie)
If Someone with an uncut version joins a game with Australians with the cut version Uncommon Infected will NOT spawn

Now lets see what conflicts here:

Visual effects:
Bodies Disappear: Now this DID NOT happen in Left 4 Dead 1 and it gained the MA15+ Rating why the hell was this removed? and why are prop corpses present if corpses disappear
Gore and Blood: This has been drastically tuned down compared to Left 4 Dead 1(MA15+) and even removed decapitation which was present in Left 4 Dead 1.

Gameplay:
UCI's(UnCommon Infected) were removed which is a new key gameplay mechanic which allows L4D2 to be just that more Different to L4D1 The Riot Cop will not Spawn on Australian Cut versions why is this? Shooting Cops is not allowed? Lets see what games do this that are classified:
CS 1.6
CSS
Prototype
Resident Evils
GTA Series
Give me a valid reason the Riot Cop was removed ALSO the fact they were Security and not the law enforcement conflicts the reason for removal.

Another issue Qouted from Voight

Have you played online much?

Because now if people find out you have the Australian version they'll kick you straight away.

It's a sad fact.
I've seen this happen 4 times, the riot cop wont spawn and people get suspicious, and if someone admits they have the Australian version, its an INSTANT vote kick.

Wtf is this?
The videogame Holocaust?!

That's right. (circa Voight)

How to possibly get this fixed:
KEEP THIS THREAD ON FRONT PAGE!
Wait for a patch? Be warned using a patch not made by valve my result in a ban.
Spam(but be civil) the South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson who is blocking R18+ ratings His Details:

South Australian Attorney-General, Hon. Michael Atkinson MP
GPO Box 464
ADELAIDE SA 5001
Phone: (08) 8207 1723
Fax: (08) 8207 1736
Email: attorney-general@agd.sa.gov.au

Other Conflicting Issues

Call of Duty MW2 has been passed classification even after a surfacing of the video in which the player must slaughter unarmed civilian innocents in cold blood to perform a terrorist attack HOW can this be allowed and not the slaughter of crazed Zombies?

Some important things to note thanks to Arim

▪ YES, you can refund your game if its in preorder stage

▪ YES, you can import the game using various methods to get uncensored content, make sure they're not illegal/against steam TOS

▪ YES, you can change the AppID to get more violence in the Aus version

▪ YES, getting an uncensored import or changing AppID will run on Aus dedicated/local/whatever servers

▪ NO, it will not result in a ban to change the AppID AFAIK, only if you change core files like .exes and .dlls will you get banned for cheating, check the VAC forum

▪ NO, it is not illegal to import the game but for a few minor exceptions which are pretty irrelevant anyway

▪ NO, it is not illegal to own prohibited material unless you wish to sell/distribute it/are a minor

▪ NO updates applied to the demo haven't altered the gameplay, only the intro movie

I guess that he was running sideways around it to get closer to it or whatever.

Because his full right part of his body was gone and you could look at the inner values that count

It is pretty drastic, youtube has some videos. Unfortunate because the zombie damage is one of the significant changes from L4D1 to L4D2.

No doubt. It wouldn't even be the same game without.

Yeah, the added gore definately makes the game more intense and visceral... I feel bad for Aussies, especially if Steam forces the cut version on them despite importing.

Ok, so. I played Left 4 Dead 2 Demo again.

This time , completely different results. I don't know if they patched the game or what. But the game ran very very smooth. I played on an easier difficulty, so I got to use the melee the way it was meant to be. It was pretty fun. The graphics were great. The aiming seemed back to normal.

I'm actually back to excited about the game. The graphics are a bit happy and bright, but I can get over that.

All in all, I'm glad I preordered. Can't wait for the final release.
