    Some people's voices are extremely scratchy or just don't come out in the lobby but work fine in-game. I guess this fixes the problem :p

    I thought the problem was that pressing the talk button would randomly crash L4D. at least for many people that was a proble, myself included. but i havent used it since launch for that reason. was it ever fixed?

    I forgot the link:

    Some users are reporting an error: "Unable to load authentication library, Exiting..." when launching games or loading maps (creating a listen server). I personally experienced this when trying to load a map in CS:S.

    Anyone receiving similar problems just needs to opt out of the Beta.

    I never even use the lobby chat.

    Either way, doesn't valve do this like every two weeks?
