11-22-12: Initial release.
12-23-12: It appears that the file I had used before doesn’t work. I found a new activator that works better. See the update at the bottom.
I was going to actually post this tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait that long to talk about the success I had today in trying to prove to my friends that nothing is impossible.
Before I talk about my story, I want to say that I own a legitimate copy of Windows 7, and I really don’t have any plans to go with Windows 8 (for numerous reasons I won’t state here).
Nonetheless, I wanted to demonstrate that yes, cracking Windows 8 registration is easy, and you could activate it on your own through other means. This article is simply for educational purposes. How you wish to proceed forward is up to you. I used it on my friend’s unactivated copy of legit Windows 8 as a test bed as I don’t have a copy of Windows 8 myself personally. So let’s begin!

If you’ve already read Versatile’s Tutorial on [How To] Play Left 4 Dead 2 LAN Online Using Tunngle (Garena, or Hamachi) (btw awesome post) and you already have due to it being the top post. I bet your right now searching for a quicker way of launching your multiplayer game instead of typing “map whatyouwant” in the console
“The Left 4 Dead 2 Server launcher is your answer”
Well the Left 4 Dead 2 Launcher is a program written C++ “yawn” I’ll skip the technical. What the software does basically, is that it creates your online or lan game before you even think about the console. (Yes it also does work for those who bought it)
As you can see from the image above, it has the same interface as Steam (nice touch). Down below in the left hand corner is an option where you can select what character you want to play. Sorry only the server hoster can choose who wants to be. There is also a password option for those want to host private games. Another benefit of this is that you can host your game on a selected port. Good for running games on special routers.
For those with Non-Legit Versions
Now before you go ahead and scroll down to the download link, I reccomend you download the Revolution-Emulator rev-emu for short (download link below) Once it’s done click on it and instead of installing it in your Left 4 Dead 2 root directory ie C:\Program Files\Left 4 Dead 2 where it says, just install it into a folder somewhere like the desktop. Once it’s done go into the bin folder and copy the “config” folder and paste it into your \Left 4 Dead 2\Bin\ folder. Once done open Config folder right click the MasterServers.vdf file and click properties and make it read only. This will make the Server apear on the Steam Group Server option in Game, instead of you going to the Left 4 Dead 2 Server Launcher and typing the hosts ip. To install the launcher extract the archive copy the file to your install directory, create a shortcut and enjoy.
*Note if your running rev-emu “MasterServers.vdf” ignore the above paragraph!
For those with Legit Versions
Simply extract files from the archive and copy to your install directory for the game (install directory, root directory same thing) create a shortcut and enjoy.
Thanks, goes to Nick and Versatile for reminding me.
First of all, I want to thank all the viewers that have visited this blog for the year 2008. When I first started off the year, I only had one goal in mind: “Bring the undground knowledge to the common man”. Did we succeed? I want to say so, yes!
Check out this month of December page views. You can see that Decemember was the first time we broke 100k views a month, which is amazing!
At the beginning of 2008, you know what our daily hit was roughly? See the picture below:
So yes, we have made significant strides this year, and honeslty, I have no goal in terms of daily hits or anything like that. As long as I have people viewing this blog, I am happy.
Notice that on this blog we do not spam you with donations or ads (except Voltaire’s PrizeRebel ad), but even that works because it helps everyone gets free stuff.
What were the top posts of 2008? See the list below:
In general, people loved to play COD4 on cracked servers, so of course this is the hottest topic of the year. After all, COD4 was a badass game! Next in line were of course anything related to adult erotica passwords, and then the rest is a mirage of PS2/XBOX modding articles, as well as miscellaneous tutorials and things dealing with the internet.
I hope articles like these is what you guys are looking for as we try to decide what we shall write for 2009 and beyond. Once again, thanks for coming to the blog, and if you want to become a writer, by all means let V1 know! Thanks!
