Left4Dead 2 Tunngle Guide – How To

By   /   7 years ago

Tunngle is a virtual network adapter and a hamachi alternative.  In case you don’t know what is Hamachi, its a tool that helps you play your favorite game on virtual LAN with your friends. Tunngle as a hamachi alternative and does the same but, has few features which make it better then hamachi. *Debatable*

We have generally preferred playing games online likeLeft4Dead for instance on hamachi but as Tunngle is quickly gaining popularity, I thought it would be better to write about it first. So lets get down to how you can setup Left4dead 2 and play it with your friends using Tunngle.

How to Use Tunngle to Play Left4dead 2

Step 1
Download and Install Tunngle.

Step 2
Login to your Tunngle account.

Step 3
Click on the browser on the bottom left of the program and choose the type of the game you want to play. In case of Left4dead 2 “Shooters”, and then choose Left4dead 2 from the list.

Step 4
Join the Room and follow the instructions given below to host and join Left4dead 2 game using Tunngle.

How to Host/Join Left4dead 2 Server On Tunngle

Step 1
Update your game to the latest patch.  For example right now it is 2002 so download and update the game with it.

To Know Your Left4dead 2 Version of the Game

1. Open dev console.
2. Type “version”.
3. Update your game accordingly.

Step 2
Download and Install the Stryder Patch to minimize game crashes to desktop.

Step 3
Run Ingen.exe in the root and then run left4dead2.exe to start the game.

Step 4 | Host Left4dead 2 Game
1. Open dev console.
2. Type “hostname (name of your game)” to setup the server name. Like if you put  “hostname SegmentNext” it will give you a Left4dead 2 game server called “SegmentNext”.
3. Type “sv_allow_lobby_connect_only 0” and hit enter.
4. Type “sv_lan 1” and hit enter.
5. To fix any consistency errors your players may get, type “sv_consistency 0”.
6.  Type “map mapname gamemode” to setup a map and game mode for your server. Like “map c1m1_hotel versus”

Step 5
Once the game is hosted, your friends will see your game hosted under Steam Group Servers. Click on the server and then click join to play that game.
