Left 4 Dead 2 Eyefinity Fixed HUD Files

Info

L4D2 is a great game that spans wonderfully across 3 monitors.  Often in-game many of your enemies may appear on your flanks causing you damage requiring that you turn quickly to avoid them.  So after playing for a few days playing on 3 monitors I wonder how I ever lived without a nice Eyefinity setup.  This may seem like an unfair advantage, but it also comes with its fair share of drawbacks such as a HUD which is basically unusable without the below add-in.  So I want to first issue a BIG thank you for all the people at WSGF (Wide Screen Gaming Forum) who created the below add-ins, and a much more in depth article on the proper use of these mods.

Fortunately there is a method in which to shift the HUD back towards the central monitor using mods which we shall cover in this article.

WARNING

Since an update to L4D2 that forces all mods to be contained in a .vpk, there is also a restriction of the mods used on certain servers.

  • Official Dedicated – Not working.
  • Best Available Dedicated – Working on some relaxed restriction servers only.
  • Local Host – Working.

Downloads

Here are some premade mods for the 4 most common resolutions and aspect ratios.

How To Install

Extract the .vpk file from the archive to your addons folder located in “Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons”.

  1. Launch L4D2 and enable the mod through the in-game menu under Extras > Addons.

Your Mod is now ready to use. To install the mod:
