I don't know why you guys can't hear me.. On the test part it transmits fine. :/
Sometimes, you just have to save yourself.

Tomorrow I'll probably be around to help you try and figure what the problem is. Right now I need some rest.

It almost looks like when we played earlier (when Redeemed was apparently licking the floor clean or something and going away idle).

Lee, Udawg, myself and the bot would start a round and BAM, one attack and we would be close to death, because it kept getting stuck on expert. I typically was the last one left standing but then I'd get tag-teamed by a bunch of special infecteds

Since I was playing as Coach, I'll chalk it up to hate crimes... just like when 'Deemed's character started blasting away at us with a grenade launcher

And people complain about the AI for the bots. Hell that bot for 'Deemed did just what he would

I highly suggest giving the L4D1 maps in L4D2 a whirl using the versions here: http://nekoarcnetwork.com/l4donl4d2/index.html. There are straight ports and modified versions which add certain things, No Mercy gets rain storms and Dead Harvest is in the bright daytime for instance.

I played No Mercy and Blood Harvest modified versions today and they play great. The Spitter especially adds a lot of new challenges to the original game's maps. There are some quirks, these are betas, and Dead Air is not available modified yet, but I still say check it out.

Smee turn your mic boost up. The VOIP in this game is terrible.

I can set up a vent server for us all. Doesn't cost much. Once you get it set up the sound is crystal clear.

I've got a Razer HP-1 and AC-1, but apparently my mic is way too quiet even though everything is cranked up. Maybe we do need to try Vent.

Yeah, that was messed up. BTW, the reason it was stuck on Expert is because that is the way the server was set up. That's why I wanted to change servers, because we kept forgetting to change the difficulty.

As for Redeemed, he spent more time idle than in-game, lol. He'd come back for a second, and then he'd be gone for another 15 minutes. Then, despite our pleas NOT to grab the grenade launcher, he grabs it...as always. Then he went idle again, and his bot started spamming with the nade launcher...as a never-ending horde starts attacking because of an alarm. He finally runs out of ammo, thank God, and we were able to move on.

As for the AI, Sazar is right. Either the AI is as smart as Redeemed...or he's as dumb as it.

You can also boost the microphone gain using Windows settings. That's what I did, instead of using steam. At first I had it too high, but now I think I've got it about right. What do y'all think?

Oh yeah, one more thing. I had a dream about DOC getting teabagged by the Tank last night. I don't remember much, but I seem to remember Snakesh*t from We Were Soldiers coming in a'blazing, and me using a crane and wrecking ball to smash that Tank off DOC. The look on that Tank's face when he wheeled around and saw it coming for him just before the impact was EPIC!

I was going to offer this. I could host a Ventrilo server for all of NVNews with different channels for different games and the ability to create private channels.

Let me know if you guys are down. Also I bought L4D2 so when I get back to school I will have to pwn with you guys.

What's makes Vent better than in-game chat, besides the fact that one server can tend to the needs of multiple games? I think I'm fine so far with in-game chat. I can communicate with DOC and others just fine. I must admit, I haven't been using voice chat in games until recently. That's why I'm so damn good, because I learned to kick ass without it. Another good thing about that is that having to type out messages in-game greatly increased my words per minute.

Hell, it's how my brother learned to type...with TFC and TF2.

EDIT: I just thought of something. Wouldn't it be AWESOME, if there were a mod for L4D2 that let Survivors fight Survivors? For example, the first four fighting the second four? THAT WOULD BE EPIC!!!
