[Solved] How to adjust the delay before dead zombies disappear
Hi all,

The title kinda sums it up: I'd like to know which console command is used to reduce the delay after which dead zombies, SIs or characters are removed from the scene.

The only mode I play these days is Survival and there are some times (especially on The Lighthouse map) when dead bodies just cloud your vision.

I know this can be done because I've seen it in several videos, including this one on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkTUlrWokMs

Thanks.

Same here, it would be awesome to have a console command to adjust how many bodies stay

Add -lv to launch options.

It worked like a charm. Thank you, Mirai.

Here's how to add the -lv (Lima, Vega) option: right-click Left 4 Dead in your game library > Properties > General [tab] > Launch options. Add it in there.

So like this? -lv 60 adjusts how many bodies you want to stay?

No, it forcing low violence mode, so all bodies disappear almost instantly.

The command just makes it so bodies fade instantly

I was hoping for a bodies stay indefinitely mode, that would be epic, just pile em high!

"cl_ragdoll_limit" = "0" ( def. "20" )
client archive
- Maximum number of ragdolls to show (-1 disables limit)

Commands are useless, it just forces low violence mode bodies fade instantly
