l4d2 dedicated server game modes

i have 5 l4d2 servers running off my dedicated box.. now i went though each server.cfg and set the name of the game mode under sv_gametypes, versus, survival, coop, scavenge, realism.. but when i boot each server they automatically start as coop servers and not each game type like i would like.. it worked for l4d1 but not l4d2.. any ideas here? im at a total loss.. thx for any help!

Make sure to open port 1200, 27005, and the port of your server, IE 27015.


and when I start any of my 4 L4D2 servers I see this :
unknown command "mp_gamemode"

side question : Do you need to define a game mode? Or can you just let the lobby choose...I assume this would happen if I remove that game mode command in server.cfg?

Can you give an example of multiple game types. Such as realism and versus ?

IMHO, Realism mode is not a "mode" it is more diffculty level, and versus game type cannot be run with realism settings.

I've tried that command and it didn't work. When I start up the server and log on, it is still on the standard mode. Is there something else that needs to be set? Perhaps in the server.cfg?

Console said its running in REALISM MODE but there is RESPAWN in game, strange. Valve said there is no respawn in realism mode, players only can revive each other using defibrilator.

EDIT:

Lol this realy aint workin', I wrote cvar value by myself, and server replied same thing...

EDIT2:I checked now, and there is REALISM MODE (normal, advanced, expert diff. level) running on the net, wtf is wrong here, did i missed something?

sv_gametypes sets the gametype the server is ALLOWED to play
Not what mode is CURRENTLY enabled

At least that is how it is meant to work
You then set mp_gamemode to be the CURRENT mode the server is in

e.g.
sv_gametypes "coop,realism,versus"
mp_gamemode "realism"
Should mean the server is allowed to play coop, realism and versus
And the current mode is set to realism

However it seams mp_gamemode has been disabled
Hopefully it will be enabled again in a patch
Or someone from Valve will tell us how we are now meant to set game type

It was suggested in another thread that "map c1m1_hotel realism" might work
However I haven't tested this yet

I'm running a dedicated server. How do it set it up so that it accepts lobby games that are all gametypes except for co-op games.

Ty, now my server config looks like this, and its working, (mp_gamemode doesnt exist in l4d2)

sv_password ""
map c1m1_hotel "realism"
z_difficulty "impossible"
sv_alltalk 1
sv_gametypes "coop,versus,realism,teamversus,teamscavenge"

If you put "map c1m1_hotel "realism"" into your server.cfg the server wont stop loading this map. Because after each map load it executes the server.cfg.

Put it in your launch parameters like ./srcds.exe -game left4dead2 +map c1m1_hotel "realism"
