Is there a mod that controls the spawning rate?
Not just adding waves, I'm looking for a mod that controls the amount of spawning even in the base Coop game, i.e. Less Spawning for inexperienced friends (trying to play with girlfriend or friend who's not good FPS player) or More Spawning for Experienced friends.

Thanks for any tips.

There are a few settings you can try:

sm_cvar spawn_behind_survivors_distance
z_mob_spawn_min_interval_expert (or whatever difficulty you're on)
sm_cvar z_mob_population_density
sm_cvar z_mega_mob_size
sm_cvar z_mob_spawn_max_size

What's wrong with just playing EASY, NORMAL, ADVANCED and EXPERT ... whatever suits your skill-level ? It's hard to even get hurt on EASY.

Not sure if you know this already, but pick an approximate difficult level (Easy, Normal, Advanced, Expert) and The Director will do the rest. The Director changes spawn rates and locations based on individual and team performances so just give it a little time and it'll dish out hordes accordingly.

Thanks for the replies

[Linux] sophia hapgood, I'll take a look to see what is default to increase or to lower, on those settings. Is it possible there's link to such info? Thanks!

cease and Hollapeno, yes I know about difficulty settings. I guess The Director doesn't work. As an example final level of the mall even on Easy was near impossible to get through with only 2 players, one of which was a n00b to FPS, as I mentioned. There is no real control over the Friendly AI, i.e. can't tell them to guard the Car or go get Gas cans.

The other names are people who posted, The Director? I read, it's the ingame AI auto adjuster.
