ok i made a set for one of our left 4 dead addicts videos and its only a room. i added a player start and finale nav mesh and it worked fine everyone could enter the room. i changed some textures with custom textures and recompiles and even re-did the nav meshes...sent everyone the new .nav .bsb and textures and no one can join. they get an error saying something like string tables dont match. i can enter the map just fine but they cant. any ideas?

Just pulled this off the valve wiki, Might be helpful
Quote:
Left 4 Dead requires the file "stringtable_dictionary.dct" to be embedded inside the BSP to open it.

If the file is not present L4D will pack the file inside the BSP, but will crash in the process.

To prevent this from happening, you can configure Hammer to automatically pack a "stringtable_dictionary.dct" file into your BSP during the compile process. To do this, follow the tutorial here.

The "stringtable_dictionary.dct" file itself can be obtained from that tutorial, or extracted from an official L4D map using a tool like Pakrat.

Also, What exactly does the error say, A copy and paste from the console or a screenshot maybe?
