It’s taken close to 8 months and a whole lot of work, but the I Hate Mountains team has announced the release of a new version of the L4D1 campaign, and the release of the L4D2 campaign.
This is it! No, we ain’t speaking about the Michael Jackson post-mortem movie but about the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains subtly dubbed I Hate Mountains 2! We are hereby releasing the 1.2 version of both Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2 versions of the campaign.
It certainly took time, almost 8 months… At the beginning, we honestly thought this port would be a piece of cake, but we just couldn’t figure how difficult it would be and how life would change for each of us following the release of the first version. Between missing content, broken features, crashes and unexplainable issues, we were really this close to give up during these last months.
Still, better late than never.
The team says that they’ve struggled to iron out all of the bugs in the L4D2 version, but that some still remain. These are listed in the readme, as well as on the IHM forums. Still, the team assures us that what seemed like a daunting task at first has been achieved very well.
We’re also sure the L4D1 1.2 version (which is technically version 1.1) is great, and patches up any issues that may have been present in the Left 4 Dead 1 version.
