    L4d psa

    A quick bit of info I've been meaning to share...

    Adding -serverbrowser to the launch options of left for dead adds a button on the main menu for a server browser. See attached screenshots for instructions/results.

    launch option for source:
    -autoconfig - Restores video and performance settings to default for the current hardware detected. Ignores settings inside any .cfg files until this parameter is removed.
    -dev - Enables developer mode. Also disables the automatic loading of menu background maps and stops the quit dialog from appearing on exit.
    -condebug - Logs all console output into the console.log text file.
    -console - Starts the game with the developer console enabled.
    -toconsole - Starts the engine directly in the console, unless a map is specified with +map.
    -dxlevel <level> - Forces a specific DirectX version when launching the engine. This is useful if your graphics card is DirectX 9 capable, but a lot faster using only DirectX 8 (e.g. NVidia GeForce FX 5200). Multiply the desired DirectX version to use with ten. E.g. for DirectX 8.0 you would use -dxlevel 80.
    -32bit - Forces the engine to start in 32-bit mode. Only useful on 64-bit Operating Systems.
    -fullscreen - Forces the engine to start in fullscreen mode.
    -window or -sw - Forces the engine to start in windowed mode.
    -w <width> - Forces the engine to start with resolution set to <width>.
    -h <height> - Forces the engine to start with resolution set to <height>.
    -refresh <rate> - Force a specific refresh rate.
    -heapsize <kilobytes> - Specifies the heapsize (in kilobyte) the game will use.
    -nocrashdialog - Suppresses some 'memory could not be read' unhandled errors.
    -novid - When loading a game with this parameter, the intro Valve video will not play.
    -noborder - When used with the game set to windowed mode, will make the game fullscreen, making Alt+Tab faster.
