Australian version.

The Australian Version Thread


Please visit the Grow up Australia website. and show some support

If you want the uncensored version here is a temporary fix thanks to ShaneTim
The process can be seen here.


The (overly)censored version of L4D2 is set to be released in Australia this version removes key features in the game not allowing the Australian Community to access the full game more like half of it.

This version of L4D2 came about due to the RC(refused classification) of the original uncut version to the OFLC due to there being no R18+ rating one side to the problem.

The Content

So you may think the only content removed was the visual content you are WRONG!

Visual Content Removed:
Blood Spatter(greatly minimised)
Bodies Disappear
NO GORE AT ALL

An Album showing this content can be seen here<<ImageShack Link

Now for something that CHANGES GAMEPLAY:
Uncommon Infected(UCI) the Riot Cop i.e Bulletproof Zombie completely removed.

[Moderator edit: Only the Riot Cop UCI is removed. All other UCI (clown, hazmat, etc) are still in the game.]


Thankums for clearing that up, Mod ^-^

If Someone with an uncut version joins a game with Australians with the cut version Uncommon Infected will NOT spawn

Now lets see what conflicts here:

Visual effects:
Bodies Disappear: Now this DID NOT happen in Left 4 Dead 1 and it gained the MA15+ Rating why the hell was this removed? and why are prop corpses present if corpses disappear
Gore and Blood: This has been drastically tuned down compared to Left 4 Dead 1(MA15+) and even removed decapitation which was present in Left 4 Dead 1.

Gameplay:
UCI's(UnCommon Infected) were removed which is a new key gameplay mechanic which allows L4D2 to be just that more Different to L4D1 The Riot Cop will not Spawn on Australian Cut versions why is this? Shooting Cops is not allowed? Lets see what games do this that are classified:
CS 1.6
CSS
Prototype
Resident Evils
GTA Series
Give me a valid reason the Riot Cop was removed ALSO the fact they were Security and not the law enforcement conflicts the reason for removal.

Another issue Qouted from Voight

Have you played online much?

Because now if people find out you have the Australian version they'll kick you straight away.

It's a sad fact.
I've seen this happen 4 times, the riot cop wont spawn and people get suspicious, and if someone admits they have the Australian version, its an INSTANT vote kick.

Wtf is this?
The videogame Holocaust?!

That's right.
(circa Voight)

Here's a demo of what we are dealing with just look here.

How to possibly get this fixed:
KEEP THIS THREAD ON FRONT PAGE!
Wait for a patch? Be warned using a patch not made by valve my result in a ban.
Spam(but be civil) the South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson who is blocking R18+ ratings His Details:

South Australian Attorney-General, Hon. Michael Atkinson MP
GPO Box 464
ADELAIDE SA 5001
Phone: (08) 8207 1723
Fax: (08) 8207 1736
Email: attorney-general@agd.sa.gov.au

Other Conflicting Issues

Call of Duty MW2 has been passed classification even after a surfacing of the video in which the player must slaughter unarmed civilian innocents in cold blood to perform a terrorist attack HOW can this be allowed and not the slaughter of crazed Zombies?

Report on the CODMW2 situation News.com.au

Thank CryptiK for this well thought out post.

Some important things to note thanks to Arim

▪ YES, you can refund your game if its in preorder stage

▪ YES, you can import the game using various methods to get uncensored content, make sure they're not illegal/against steam TOS

▪ YES, you can change the AppID to get more violence in the Aus version

▪ YES, getting an uncensored import or changing AppID will run on Aus dedicated/local/whatever servers

▪ NO, it will not result in a ban to change the AppID AFAIK, only if you change core files like .exes and .dlls will you get banned for cheating, check the VAC forum

▪ NO, it is not illegal to import the game but for a few minor exceptions which are pretty irrelevant anyway

▪ NO, it is not illegal to own prohibited material unless you wish to sell/distribute it/are a minor

▪ NO updates applied to the demo haven't altered the gameplay, only the intro movie



P.s. If anyone has anything new to add just send me a PM and I will look into adding it.

Keep this thread bumped!

You do not know how bad it is.

It's like going several steps back in FPS history. Even Wolfenstein 3D has more blood and at least the corpses in that game stick around so you remember where the you have been and not trail backwards.

We need to get Michael Atkinson ousted, and a modern day human in. The time of stone age neanderthals is over.

I emailed the classification board a while back and they said they are going to send me something to sign in the mail.

When they said "no longer contains depictions of decapitation, dismemberment, wound detail or piles of dead bodies lying about the environment."

I was like, all right I suppose it's not that bad. But when I saw the infected dissappearing straight away (before they even hit the ground) I was annoyed.

They say "Piles of dead bodies lying around" assuming that it's just the already dead one's found in the map. But for christ sake, getting rid of the infected before they hit the ground is ridiculous.

If L4D1 could have all this, why not #2?

The bodies you shoot disappear, and yet you can turn a corner and find piles of bloody corpses as props. What sense is there in that?

And as you mentioned we could dismember, burn and look at corpses in the first one, why not this one?

It's actually kind of frustrating because now I'm not even sure if I've killed an infected because they show no signs of damage and just spazz out for awhile and do their thing, either getting back up or collapsing and evaporating.

Just played it myself, this is ing pathetic. Bodies are faded away before they hit the ground, hardly any blood at all. It's a ing step backwards from L4D1. I will spend every minute from now till the day the full game is out figuring out how to get our violence back, because it's really ruining the game experience for me

The entire continent of Australia is a death trap. Even the flies can kill you. Why they are afraid of a little animated gore, I'll never know.
