Also, the opening cutscene works--it crashes at the loading screen. --- .999999=9/9=1 I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

I had this problem to. I just kept trying to open it over and over again and eventually it worked. Steam updated earlier this evening so it could be that. When it finally did work, a box came up saying something like "finishing installing demo". --- Spaceman Spiff

Go into the game's properties and put "-windowed -noborder" and it won't crash on startup like it did for me. --- DevilousSniper YOU DIDN'T EVEN PREORDER L4D2 AND YOU GOT THE DEMO NOW

Did that first.

This crash probably has something to do with me not having pre-ordered L4D2, but still preloading the demo and playing that. (by double-clicking L4D2.exe) I'm fairly sure it's just a demo, so it's not illegal... Right? --- .999999=9/9=1 I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

Oh, the pre-loaded version probably includes (or excludes) a file that automatically crashes (or can't show the menu screen) the game when you get to the menu screen. (ditto) --- .999999=9/9=1 I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

Dohoho Sneaky valve
I open up steam, and it crashes immediately once I get to the loading screen. I close steam, and it crashes after about 15 seconds.
So, I'll just have to wait like the rest of us. --- .999999=9/9=1 I DON'T UNDERSTAND!
