I bought L4D2 through Steam last week but every time I try to dl the game it says the Steam server is too busy. I want to play with some BBA on this game but I am not able to yet. I even posted a question on Steam Support but they haven't got back to me yet. mad huh mad

Keep trying, it takes about 2 hours to dl and that's when the servers aren't that busy. I had to download it 2 days ago and didn't have any problems. When you finally do get it, look me up on steam "Loose Stool" and I'll run through some of the maps with you. Maybe we can even get Zeus in a game.

Does or will Steam do downloads in the background? Fera's been complaining of low FPS for the last day or two.

If the client is left on it will download client or game updates automatically if set to do so. But it shouldn't effect FPS much. You might have a glitched steam client; have you tried a fresh install of the client itself?

As for the download I have no idea on that.. I've never had any issues with slow DL's or the inability to download but steam is self aware and likes to be a piece of crap and I wouldn't put it past to be messing up.
And don't expect much from online support, they don't help much 70% of the time, you might get more of a response and some support by calling instead.

i have not tried a fresh install of the client.

for the fps, i close out of every program whilst playing ET. i think it is just the limits of my laptop.

i had downloaded portal in the past with no issue. so i uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it today, but same issue, Steam Servers too busy!

thanks guys.
