General Improvements (Advanced)

Simply subscribing to this addon isn't enough. There is a config file that you need to make a simple edit to in order to get the advanced features of this addon to work properly. If you do not want to do this you can subscribe to the simple version of the addon instead here.

After subscribing to this addon, navigate to the location that the game is installed (if you are unsure, right-click the game in your Steam library, go to properties, then the local files tab, and click on the first button to browse the local files). From here, open the left4dead2 folder, then the cfg folder. Now open the listenserver.cfg file (with any text editor, such as Notepad) and copy/paste everything from this post into that file. Save and exit.

Additional steps to uninstall this addon:
In addition to unsubscribing you will need to delete everything in the listenserver.cfg file, so it is empty like it was before you edited it.

Makes various improvements to the game.

Includes my Improved Bots (Advanced) addon.

• 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 magazine 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.

• 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.

So what do I propose to do?

That means no program is set as the default program to open that type of file when you double click it. If you right-click the file there should be an option to open it with notepad. If not you will need to double click it and use the window that pops up to select a program to open it with.

I went to the Library section and right clicked Left 4 Dead 2. I went down to Properties, clicked on Local Files and then clicked Browse Local Files... I then opened the left4dead2 folder and then the cfg folder. The listenserver.cfg isn't a file but instead has a paper icon. What's the problem? Is it suppose to be like that??

You need to navigate to a specific folder, create a file, then copy the text that's in the linked thread and paste it into that file. Go to the location that you have the game installed, you'll see a folder called left4dead2 . Open that and look for another folder called cfg . In that folder you need to find and open the listenserver.cfg file. You can open it with any text editor program, such as Notepad (comes installed on Windows).

After that you need to click this link and copy all of that text into the listenserver.cfg file that you opened in your text editor. Save the file and you're ready to go.

When I was wondering why the mod wasn't working, I went & saw the description. But I understood nothing (what I'm supposed to do after downloading the mod).
