Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2

Improved Bots (Advanced)
< >
oh and i think i noticed something. everytime i get incapped or attacked by a special infected, the bots ignore the zombies attacking them and blocking their way. then the bots get incapped themselves.
for some reason it works again. weird.
ziggy, i know. after the first try to look after the conflicting addon, i didnt find any. i deactivated every single addon to look which one is the problem but i didnt find a single one. but thanks anyways.

If it's red it means there is another addon that is conflicting with this one. If two of your installed addons are trying to modify the same file the game can only read that file from one of those addons, and it will completely ignore the other addon.

There is nothing that can be done to fix this. You need to figure out which addon is causing the issue and choose between them. Only one can be installed at a time, unless you are experienced enough with the modding tools to manually merge the two addons together.
@Ziggy for some reason it doesnt work. i would be happy if you responded on how i can fix that. if i go to my addons list, this addon is marked red and doesnt work while i play. i checked if my other red marked addons cause this problem. but not a single one did. and thanks for making this addon!

@Ziggy yeah, after posting that question I realized that if you made an advanced version, there should have been a simple one, so I browsed and found your simple version, and subscribed to it! :D

Anyway, thanks for the clarification!

This addon doesn't modify the amount of damage you take in any game mode.

Using any of the commands in any of the radial menus will enable cheat mode in the game, which disables achievements. Achievements will be enabled as long as you don't use the radial menus. The simple version of this addon doesn't disable achievements.
Metalloman1 Oct 22 @ 9:39am 
Wait, wait: I found that you did a Simple version of this mod: going to check that out! :)
Metalloman1 Oct 22 @ 9:36am 
@Ziggy: just to be completely sure about this point:

• Using bot commands will block Steam achievements for the rest of the campaign you're playing.

this comprehends "ALT" too?

I mean: there's no way to use your mod to have a better AI and get the achievements too, giving to the other chars at least some commands, to set them up once and for all? :)

I personally don't care about the F keys features nor aobout the teleport one so I'll probably never use these, but I'm interested in giving commands and I'd hate to have my achievements blocked by this.

For some reason yesterday when i played Realism i couldnt die and i had infinite health. but now if i wanna play it again im taking damage. solution??
RyanAwesome63 Oct 16 @ 6:12pm 
you cant do add on maps with single player survival?????????????
kirk bushmen Oct 15 @ 1:41pm 
ok i am sorry for that my bad
Ziggy  [author] Oct 14 @ 11:34pm 
Care to elaborate?

Ok, thanks for the answer!
Ziggy  [author] Oct 7 @ 3:54pm 
The special infected you play as in versus mode? This mod shouldn't change that. You can still do that the way you normally would.

Go to this location on your computer:
[Steam install location]\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\cfg\

Open the autoexec.cfg file. If it doesn't exist, create it. Then copy/paste this into that file:

bind "alt" "bots_radial"
bind "f1" "maps_radial"
bind "f2" "char_radial"
bind "f3" "diff_radial"
bind "F5" "Vote Yes"
bind "F6" "Vote No"
HHRSN16 Oct 7 @ 3:42pm 
No, there arent any other addons conflicting with this one, and im starting through the single player menu of this addon. Actually, i dont mind the survivors i play, but i would like to chose the special infected in some cases...
Ziggy  [author] Oct 7 @ 3:31pm 
I don't know what you are talking about. None of the things you mentioned are modified by this addon.

@Keel the Swift:
That's very strange. I'm trying to think of a reason why that would happen but I haven't come up with any explanation for it.

Make sure you don't have any other addons installed that are conflicting with this one, and make sure you are starting the game through the new single player menu that this addon adds.
HHRSN16 Oct 7 @ 2:42pm 
Those customs key bindings arent working, i press them in-game but nothing happens, if someone know how to fix that, please tell me when possible...
Keel the Swift Oct 4 @ 6:42pm 
@Ziggy: I haven't had the opportunity to test playing multiplayer using the Simple version. I'll let you know once I get around to it.

And yeah, as far as I can tell, most if not all vanilla and downloaded maps with L4D1 characters are problematic. At the very least, last week, we tested on No Mercy, Death Toll, Crash Course, and Precinct 84. All crashed after every safehouse. All stopped crashing after this mod was disabled.
klofijool Oct 4 @ 7:16am 
expert isnt expert. it s just not expert if the tank has 4000 ish hitpoints and the witch dies by 2 headshots. on expert you have to take those on a wonderfull and intense hike back to possibly the safehouse, maybe only to find out that your door gets smacked if the tank aproaches it head on. also, if i run from the tank, i dont want 3 bots to stay there shooting and getting smashed so that i m the only one on my feet. nope, didnt like the mod
Alphaeus93 Oct 3 @ 10:07pm 
They still don't pick them up after I set it to 4
Ziggy  [author] Oct 3 @ 9:12pm 
Press the alt key in-game.
Alphaeus93 Oct 3 @ 9:05pm 
Sorry, but it wasn't clear how to toggle the bots to use melee, they currently can't use them. Can anyone help?
Ziggy  [author] Oct 3 @ 7:53pm 
The gambler is Louis but I have no idea why that problem would exist on multiplayer servers only. I've seen an addon cause this issue once before, but it occured on single player games as well. It was because the population file (the file that tells the game which NPCs to spawn, and where to spawn them) didn't match the one from the most current patch. This addon doesn't modify that file at all, so I have no idea what would be causing it.

Have you tried using the simple version on your server to see if that fixes the issue?
Also, is it occuring on every Left 4 Dead 1 map or only specific maps?
IZOID YT Oct 3 @ 6:44pm 
Cool the bots are actually usefull thanks :)
Keel the Swift Oct 2 @ 9:58pm 
The issue does only arise when playing multiplayer. And I did test by activating one mod at a time, and the issue only came up once this mod was activated (while there were other mods active, technically, they were only weapon mods (namely, CS:GO unlocker and Tight Shotguns), so should not affect the survivor behaviours in any way).

Does it help if I mention that it seems to be some sort of precaching error pertaining to "gambler" or something like that? (I don't remember the exact error message).
Ziggy  [author] Oct 2 @ 7:33pm 
@Keel the Swift:
I just tested it and it is working fine for me. I don't get a crash when transitioning from one chapter to another with the original Left 4 Dead survivors. I was playing on single-player though, not on a multiplayer server.

I don't have any experience with modded Left 4 Dead 2 servers, so I can't help you if it's an issue related to that. It may also be another addon you have installed that is conflicting with this one. This addon is only designed to be played on single player, so you may want to try using the simple version of this addon if you are using it for multiplayer.
Ziggy  [author] Oct 2 @ 7:17pm 
@Keel the Swift:
Sounds like a file in the addon is outdated. Might be a simple fix. I'll look into it.

No. Bots don't know how to use defibs.
XItsBlizzard Oct 2 @ 5:58pm 
After you die, will they go back and get defibs and revive you?
Keel the Swift Oct 2 @ 3:13pm 
Discovered a bit of an issue when playing with friends with this mod installed on Server/Host. Looking down on past comments, someone brought it up as well, but I'll just pinpoint how to cause the issue.
The gist of it is that whenever we play through a campaign that uses L4D1 survivors (Bill, Louis, Francis, and Zoey), the server crashes between every chapter (when you enter a safehouse). It seems to work fine for L4D2 survivors, even when installed on Server, though. At least, I don't recall causing a crash with them.

So, @I Swear to drunk I'm not God: You'll be fine as long as you use L4D2 crew.
Hey Ziggy, I refused to accept your answer :P
I tried installing on my server and it worked! I watched in awe, after killing myself, Ellis kill a charger with his axe to free Rochelle on their way to the safe room :D
They didn't know what to do with the coke of dead center however but that's probably Valve's fault ;)
Ziggy  [author] Sep 26 @ 7:25pm 

I'm not sure why it's giving you that error then. It works fine for me.
Chris6129 Sep 26 @ 3:37pm 
@Ziggy I'm doing through single player menus,
Can they pick up and toss throwables?
Ziggy  [author] Sep 26 @ 11:45am 
Are you starting the game through the new single player menu or the regular versus menu?

@I Swear to drunk I'm not God:
It's not intended for servers. The simple version is multiplayer-friendly, but I don't know how to enable it on servers.

No, this addon doesn't have any impact on performance.
I Swear to drunk I'm not God Sep 26 @ 10:28am 
Also, does it take more CPU juice and makes the game slower? :)
Will this work if I install on my server? or only on single player games?
Chris6129 Sep 24 @ 6:23pm 
everytime i play a versus game single player, it says "competitve modes require human players" so what can i do?
An Avali named John Sep 16 @ 6:22am 
@OnlyFails Pause the game first, works for me! :D
LordSlime Sep 11 @ 9:31am 
having "bug" that i chose a map play for some minutes and then the server that i created kick me out because it says that it needs people to play adversary mode
sunky Sep 9 @ 3:15pm 
this mod is relly good cause if u play alone with only bots and if u die they will take over
OnlyFails Sep 7 @ 1:20am 
Could you please not bind anthing to the ALT key please? Especially a radial menu, when I alt+tab out of the game I my mouse cursor is stuck in a circular bounding area on the screen.

got it working

I figured it out! The nacht der untoten had a problem with this mod, so I uninstalled nacht and it worked! Thanks for the help.
Ziggy  [author] Aug 31 @ 9:00pm 
Try disabling all of your other addons in the addons menu and only leave this one enabled. See if it crashes then.
Ziggy  [author] Aug 31 @ 8:50pm 
Nothing in this addon should cause the game to crash. I have to assume it's something else that's causing the issue.
SP00KY Blinkz † Aug 31 @ 8:40pm 
When I have it installed, it crashes when going into dead center.
Ziggy  [author] Aug 31 @ 4:33pm 
You must have a conflicting addon installed.
