Default [Gone] I imagine...

I imagine anyone who wanted it would have already bought it but I bought the 4 pack of L4D2 and have [Edit: 0] to give away.

On the downside, these ARE THE AU CENSORED COPIES, sorry folks

On the upside, they're free. I don't want any money for them, just enjoy the gift

So anyone who'd like a copy, shoot me a pm.

Cheers.
Rage.

It shouldn't keep doing that. Aren't the files exactly the same?

There are some specific files that are different between the censored / uncensored versions. The bulk of the difference size wise relates to the intro video of about 300-400 Mb which keeps getting deleted and redownloaded when switching between accounts (unless you do what I did below).

I've gotten around that issue Mixa by creating 2 separate Steam installs on my system in different directories. To do so:
  1. Shut down Steam
  2. Copy your existing steam folder (the one that contains Steam.exe) and subfolders into another directory. For example I copied from D:\Steam into D:\Steamuncut
    If you've got a lot of games, you may want to manually copy the content of the steamapps folder so that you're only copying the L4D2 related files ("left 4 dead 2 ..." files in steamapps, "left 4 dead 2" folder in "common") not everything.
  3. Create a shortcut to this new D:\Steamuncut\Steam.exe file on your desktop and name it something like "Steam Uncut"
  4. Run this new shortcut and log in using the account details for the account with the uncut version. (If your Steam normally auto logs in then don't worry let it do this and then select Steam --> Change User... to enable you to log in with the uncut account)
  5. If L4D2 cut version was installed then it'll update the version in the D:\Steamuncut directory to the uncut version. Otherwise, install the game now.
  6. The original cut version will still be in the D:\Steam directory untouched. You can either leave it there or uninstall it while logged into your usual steam Account (right lick on the game in your library and select delete local content).
Simply run either your usual Steam shortcut or your new Steam Uncut shortcut in order to be logged into play your regular steam games or L4D2 uncut version respectively.

You can have both of them set to remember username and password as the information is stored in the ClientRegistry.blob file in each separate directory.

I've experienced no problems since implementing this approach. Just remember that if a patch is released, you will need to log into the uncut account to let it update so it's ready to go when you wish to play.

EDIT 26 Nov 2010: Note that, just recently we've found Steam seems to get confused if you have it set to auto login on system startup. It can log into the alternate account using your main account credentials, which of course makes it want to do the 400 Mb download. Simple solution is to not have Steam autostart, but manually start whichever install you want by using it's relative shortcut and it miraculously doesn't get confused.
