Description
Summary
Makes various improvements to the game.

Includes my Improved Bots (Advanced) addon.

Features
• Moved melee weapon to its own slot. (Press 7 or cycle between primary weapon and pain pills.)
• Melee weapons and throwables can now be used while incapacitated.
• Players can now crawl slowly while incapacitated. (Only with W key; use mouse to steer.)
• Players are no longer slowed when they receive damage.
• M16's clip size reduced from 50 to 40, damage increased from 33 DPB to 44 DPB.
• Magnum's shooting speed increased, making its DPS similar to dual pistols.
• Carried ammo for pump shotguns increased from 56 to 72.
• Ammo upgrade packs are now carried in the misc slot.
• Mounted guns take 20 seconds to overheat, 8 seconds to cool down.
• L4D2 mounted gun's fire rate increased by 50%.
• Reduced fall damage and increased distance to receive fall damage to be more realistic.
• Chainsaws cut through hordes a little more smoothly and have unlimited fuel.

Notes
• Works for all official game modes.
• This addon overwrites binds for keys: ALT, F1, F2, F3, F5, F6
• Using bot commands will block Steam achievements for the rest of the campaign you're playing.

Sorry, there's nothing I can do about that. In order to use the bot commands I need to enable cheats for the server you are on. The problem is that cheats can only be enabled on something called listen servers. Those aren't the servers the game uses by default, so I needed to create a new menu that would do that.

The game's default menus aren't capable of creating listen servers either, which is why I had to use the style of menu that you see now. That menu does allow me to start the game on a listen server, but is unable to remember other values, such as character or difficulty.

This is why I created the in-game radial menus for switching those things. Press F2 in-game to select your character or F3 to change the difficulty.
While i do love the mod, what really bugs me is the new options for the title, i load up Single player, i get options that rather shocked me because i didnt expect that. I choose a level and bam! Doesnt allow me to choose a character, and there are specific characters i want to play as and the auto-assign *which is what im calling it* will assign me to a character i dont have much intrest in or dont enjoy. If you could fix this please tell me.

The addon won't work online. There's nothing I can do about that, sorry.

this mod finally works completely for me! However I did notice when playing with a friend online (who I also got to sub to your mod) some features didn't work. Like the melee weapon not having it's own slot, the bots not getting their upgrades, being slowed down when hit, and not being able to crawl. Everything else worked and I understand this is a difficult mod to manage due to it's size and complexity and im sure you will get it all worked out in time.

The improvments to bots are somewhat minor. They should be a little quicker to react to things such as a teammate being attacked by a special infected. They definitely aren't ideal teammates even with the improvments, and I realize that. Unfortunately, this is a game that is best played with other people.

The Included Improved Bots addon should make bots any worse than they were, though. If you think they are worse I guess I could upload a version of the addon without the Improved Bots addon.

Awesome mod but the bots wasn't fucking better. They still suck donkeyballs. *RAGE QUIT*

What is broken?

Have you checked the addons menu in-game to make sure other addons you have installed aren't conflicting with it? If the name of this addon is red it means there is another addon that is trying to modify the same files as this one.

are you fucking playing about this? This add-on is broken.

Ah, an easy fix. Just uploaded an update that should fix that. It might do it one more time because the addon won't actually update until after you're on the main menu.
