It could be the audio chipset taking a crap and not being able to output to L4D2 and Skype at the same time. You could try disabling the in-game Push-To-Talk ability and see if that fixes it, or worst case skip Skype and rely on PTT in-game.

Could have killed Pinky and metal on that last map. Pinky just took off and made it to the end by himself while I was hanging on the edge of the bridge with a hunter ripping into me for about 30 seconds. If we stayed within 10-15 ft of each other, we would have all finished alive.

I lol'd the entire time. Leaving a teammate to die was a good strat. I definitely think survivors need to shoot and move. You can never fully clear an area. You're never safe. Keep moving but as a team.

Exactly. Only stop moving to free someone up if you need to. Then move again.

Problem is that Steam/L4D2 defaults and activates the mic input on the "pluggable" port (which I am not using) while I am using the integrated mic attached the laptop so it disables my skype and my PTT.

So when I get out of L4D2 I have to go to the windows audio settings to activate the internal mic to be able to be heard again.

being the important part. The only time you'd leave people to die is if two of you are guaranteed to make it to the safe house to end the round. Otherwise it's foolish to sprint ahead of the group for sake of progress.

To be clear, you are trying to use a free product beyond its trial period. Please do not ask how to circumvent a product's licensing restrictions on this board.

If you bought the product and paid for a license key, enter the license key on prompt when it says it has expired.

Edit: Also WinZip is not the only compressed file available to you. A quick google search turns up a lot of options, including 7-Zip or Window's own Compressed Folders. Uninstalling WinZip should be enough to point the OS back to another app for handling compressed files.

Anyone planning on a few sessions this weekend? Ive been trying to catch up with you guys by looking in the DSLReports steam group to see who is playing. But I havent had much luck with that. No one seems to be playing whenever I look. Are you all using a different group or just the friends list?

A lot of folks we game with can't run the L4D2 game well on the current systems they have, so we haven't been playing much. I'm sure we'll be on again soon. I plan to play games Saturday Night this weekend, but can't guarantee it'll be L4D2......

I had a two week vacation, so I stayed away from the PC for the most part. I should start logging on again sometime in the evenings, most probably after 10-11pm.
