Hello. If you guys find anything inaccurate in this article, feel free to change it if you are hesitating. I would recommend thorough testing before making a decision to make a change. Of course, I think.. I did.. enough.. testing of my own... Wish this article good luck and I hope it helps! --ThaiGrocer 06:39, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I was fortunate enough (and really happy) to get an answer from Valve regarding the current situation of custom sounds on add-ons. Here's some info. Per-map sound caches are not possible in L4D2, just a unified _master.cache. I'm sure a lot of you suspected or assumed that already. The fuzzy part of this topic was packing _master.cache into add-ons. It's been recommended that level designers do not do that. Happy mapping, guys! --ThaiGrocer 19:11, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Question, the article says sounds must have a sample rate to be 'exactly' 44KHz or 22KHz, which I thought was weird because the games sounds are 22.05 KHz. And besides, everything (pretty much) works at 44.1KHz. Shouldn't 44.1KHz sounds work too? --Drunk Communist 18:01, 2 February 2012 (GMT)
