While we have access to this demo (finally) I thought it might be nice to share some useful tips about what you can do in L4D2... I'll be deleting any post that I consider useless

Enabling gore in the censored Aussie versions of the L4D2 demo is as easy as editing 1 character in 2 text files:
Change the app id 590 to 510 in these two files:
Save them and run the left4dead2.exe executable directly (not through steam icon/games list). This should be located in a directory like C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2 demo, just like the first file above.
Your status will say that you're playing "Left 4 Dead Dedicated Server", but the L4D2 Demo will start and you'll be able to play with gore enabled (no more disappearing zombies, more blood, decapitations/dismemberment, splatter on the screen, etc.!)
You will also still be able to start lobbies, invite friends and join games in progress on servers.
Thanks to Santos for mentioning this to me so that I could try it out - it works well!

Play as infected:
just download this http://depositfiles.com/files/adbdmb9nd
then extract to your steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2 demo\left4dead2
map c5m1_waterfront (or park)
z_spawn hunter OR smoker OR spitter OR tank OR charger OR boomer OR jockey
At the moment, hunter damage pounces do not register. The new hunter is basically the same, but movement seems a little like playing on an xbox :S but it's still pretty much the same, kai jumping (however you spell that) is the same.
