Description
Summary
This addon makes several changes to bots to make them act more like human players and make them more reliable as teammates. They can use melee weapons, rescue you if you die, react quicker to a teammate being attacked by a special infected and much more.

Features
• Allows you to play versus, surivial, scavenge and realism modes in single player with bots.
• Bots can use melee weapons. (can be toggled)
• Bots will continue to play after you have died instead of ending the game.
• Bots will react much faster to a player being attacked by a special zombie.
• Bots can perform some simple actions, such as closing safe room doors.
• Bots will move around a player instead of shooting through them.
• Bots are much more likely to save their first aid kits for a player.
• Bots will try to stay in a tighter group with the player.
• Control the bots with a few commands. (Press ALT)
• Easily change the map and game mode while in-game. (Press F1)
• Easily take control of another bot anytime during a game. (Press F2)
• Easily change the difficulty of the game at any time. (Press F3)
• Teleport bots back to you if they get lost or stuck. (Press ALT)

Notes
• Works for all game modes.
• This addon overwrites binds for keys: ALT, F1, F2, F3, F5, F6
• Scripts in your autoexec.cfg file will overwrite this addon's settings, if you want to set custom binds.
• Using bot commands will block Steam achievements for the rest of the campaign you're playing.
• Console commands if you don't have F-keys: bots_radial, maps_radial, char_radial, diff_radial
• Other console commands: cycle_chars, bots_toggle_move, bots_toggle_fire
• This version of the addon is ideal for single player.

Very nice and useful mod, thank you.
I've got a question: how can I play a single player versus in a custom campaign, for example dead city II?

Very good
Sorry, I posted a question on General Improvements (Simple) and I need something else answered :/

How can you get bots to use melee weapons? Whenever I play, I never see bots holding a melee weapon.

Thanks again,

Condemnedfate. Your split-screen mod clearly states that it may not work properly with other mods. It's the split-screen mod thats messing up, not this one.

Also, this is what the consoles says is conflicting: CGameUIConVarRef cl_ignore_vpk_association doesn't point to an existing ConVar. If that helps.
