    OK...here's a little tutorial for people still having problems creating lobbies/playing on our private L4D servers. This assumes you've already set our unique search key at outlined here: http://www.no-heroes.com/forum/viewtopi ... =29&t=2287

    First once you've started your L4D client (with our search key), click "PLAY CAMPAIGN", and "PLAY WITH FRIENDS".

    if there are people on your friends list playing, they will appear in this box, and you can join one of their games (if it's not full).

    If not, you can create your own lobby by clicking "CREATE LOBBY", and choosing the game mode you want to play:

    After choosing the variable you want (campaign, permissions, etc.), click "CREATE LOBBY".

    This will create your lobby for people to begin joining your game:

    Once all your friends have joined, and you still need to fill a few slots, you can click "PERMISSIONS", and change it from a "Friends-Only" game to a "Public Game":

    That's it in a nutshell. Again....this is just a workaround for accessing our servers and keeping them private until such time as Valve comes up with a workable solution in an update. It's not the ideal situation, but it's the best I can come up with until valve fixes the lobby system for private servers.
