While I so wish there was a menu mod like this (Since it does include such a thing) to play stuff like that in single player, you can also do it from console via "(Map codename) Versus" or "Scavenge"

I mean that i don't know how i can do Vs survival and scavenge solo with the bots. :D

One for gmod?

Not sure what you mean.
DarknessWrath Sep 19 @ 10:02am 
I'm still asking myself how can i do MP's mods in SP. Maybe i'm too dumb or just i can't understand normally :O.
Ziggy  [author] Sep 17 @ 8:49pm 
This addon does a lot more than that. I can confirm that every feature listed in the description is still working.

If the radial menus aren't working for you then it's an issue on your end. You probably have a conflicting addon installed, such as the voice command addon you mentioned earlier.

Vicc all this did for me was make the bots close safe house room doors sometimes, radial menus stopped working after a while, I just used some sourcemod files instead
Vicc Sep 17 @ 1:20am 
thank you for the quick answer :)
Ziggy  [author] Sep 17 @ 1:02am 
The bot commands won't work on custom maps unless you start the map through the developer's console. The improved bot behaviors should work on all maps though.

The bots aren't ideal teammates, but they are improved over the vanilla bots. The reason they aren't always faster at reacting to you getting attacked by a special infected is because I can only reduce the minimum amount of time they will wait to react, but I cannot reduce the maximum amount of time. So generally they will react quicker, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be a quick reaction.

No. Bots choose to heal based on a comparison between their own health and the health of their teammates. I've increased the gap so they're less likely to use it on themselves unless they're at a lower health and the player is fine, but that's the best I can do.

This game's modding system is very, very limited.
Vicc Sep 17 @ 12:54am 
Damn I just tried this and it actually made the bots even worse.
You say "Bots will react much faster to a player being attacked by a special zombie." but they never react at all until you are down :/ And yes I did the listenserver.cfg part.
Does this mod only work with the base campaign or is it supposed to work with any workshop campaign ?
Also is there a way to tweak them so they never heal until they are in red zone HP ?
bootlegЯat Sep 12 @ 11:11am 
Nope the radial menus were my main use but it's ok thanks anyway
Ziggy  [author] Sep 12 @ 10:18am 
It's working fine for me and nobody else has reported it not working. I'd say it's an issue on your end. Maybe you have a conflicting addon installed, or maybe you haven't followed the additional instructions in the description.
Archangel SK Sep 12 @ 5:09am 
Well....everything does not work. I just wish this will work just like before...*sigh*
Ziggy  [author] Sep 11 @ 4:12pm 
This addon modifies the radial menus as well. It's a single file, so only one addon can modify them. This game wasn't really designed with modding in mind.

If you don't use the radial menus in this addon too often you could use the simple version of it instead. The radial menus and bot commands are stripped out of that version.
bootlegЯat Sep 11 @ 3:18pm 
Eh, that's fine. Just doesn't feel as promising in-game when looking at the features, you know? Props anyway. Btw, I installed a voice command radial dial and now my dials for this mod aren't showing... They're not conflicting or anything, different binds. Any help or have I asked to much? )
Ziggy  [author] Sep 11 @ 12:23pm 
Like it says in the description, the bots are only improved, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are improved to the point of actually being good teammates. Essentially this mod just changes their behavior variables to be as ideal as possible. Things like removing the artificial delay they have before they will help a teammate who is being constrained by a special infected. That doesn't mean they will immediately help a teammate every time, but it means they can.

I can only tweak the variables that Valve has allowed. The modding system for this game is very, very limiting, so I cannot completely rescript the bots and change their behaviors. They're always going to suck as teammates, this addon just makes them suck a little bit less.
bootlegЯat Sep 11 @ 11:57am 
Nothing is conflicting, everything is in place. The bots are still as retarded as before except this time they can close spawn doors :/ thx for reply
Ziggy  [author] Sep 11 @ 11:50am 
All of the features listed do still work as intended, as far as I'm aware. Make sure you followed the additional instructions in the description and that you don't have any conflicting addons installed.

@Archangel SK:
I can't fix a problem that I am not aware of. Can you give me some details about what isn't working for you? Everything should still be working as intended, as far as I'm aware.
Ziggy  [author] Sep 11 @ 11:50am 
Not sure then. You could copy the key binds from the forum post and put just those (not the whold script!) into your autoexec.cfg file (it likely won't exist if you haven't created it. Create it in the same directory as the listenserver.cfg file). Anything in that file will be executed every time you start a map.

I don't know why versus mode works for some people and not others. It works fine for me any many others as well, but you're not the only person who has reported it not working. I don't know why that would be.
bootlegЯat Sep 11 @ 3:56am 
pure bs, just rename it to "bots sometimes close doors in safe rooms"
Archangel SK Sep 6 @ 9:25am 
Fix it please!
Toby2600 Sep 2 @ 4:30pm 
Yea. Copy pasted the words from that post into the listenserver.cfg. I don't think I have any other mods that change the keybindings either.
Lightning Sep 2 @ 4:58am 
Hey modder! I cant play the single player versus it said the server is shutting down. pls fix it
Ziggy  [author] Sep 2 @ 2:49am 
Nope. Did you follow the additional steps in the description?
Toby2600 Sep 2 @ 1:59am 
The bots are working but none of the key bindings are. Could it conflict with SourceMod if I installed that incorrectly?
Ziggy  [author] Aug 31 @ 10:14am 
Yeah. Anything you put in your autoexec.cfg file will overwrite the settings for this mod. The console commands to bind to your desired keys are in the description.
owen1346 Aug 31 @ 6:52am 
Hi, modder. I just want to know that can i change some bind keys like alt, f1 or f2 ?
Because Im using 'alt' as a bind key for thirdperson view, so i want to change 'alt' bind key to 'f7'.
By the way, i can't wait that i can play versus for single. Great mod! :D
Ziggy  [author] Aug 21 @ 10:04am 
Fixed that line. Thanks for letting me know. :)
KoRnFeD Aug 21 @ 7:26am 
Well, that was quick Ziggy! :)
KoRnFeD Aug 21 @ 7:17am 
By the way, I should add that the line I posted below is a dirrect copy of your screen in this link.


You should edit that line. I do have some codeing experiance, so that line looked wrong to be, and I deleted the extra ("). Others will just copy and paste, see it doesn't work right, and call this mod crap.
KoRnFeD Aug 20 @ 4:27pm 
OK. I did change one thing in the .cfg file.

alias" "char_radial" "wait 0; +mouse_menu CustomMenu3; alias char_radial close_charmenu"

I removed that extra " after alias, then saved. I restarted, and it works now. I can pic any map. Not sure if that was the cause, but it works now.
KoRnFeD Aug 20 @ 4:12pm 
OK, I've changed the .cfg file and saved. Subscribed to the mod, when downloaded, I restarted the game. Everything looked good until I tried to pic a map. Only Dead Center is available. When I try and pick a different one, it changes to an Addon Campaign button, and my addon campaigns are only available. I don't want to just play Dead Center. ??? Whats going on?

1) Well I was worried about getting a ban for a second when that should up lol. It said that since I am launcning my game with -insecure, it will not allow me to play on VAC secured servers.

2) There is an option there with singleplayer versus?

I will try this again, and tell you how it goes. Thanks for the help though. Really looking forward to having fun with this mod on versus :)
Ziggy  [author] Aug 10 @ 5:58pm 
1) Non-cosmetic addons should automatically be disabled when you join a server, so no addon should cause that error as far as I know. Not sure what that is.

2) Via the new single player menu.
Nexus Cakes Aug 10 @ 5:50pm 
So I have two more questions after downloading.
1.It says that I am unable to play on any VAC Secured server, is this normal for this mod?
2.How would I launch my own single player versus game with these AI?
Ziggy  [author] Aug 10 @ 3:48pm 
As long as you don't use the radial menus or console commands, yes.
Nexus Cakes Aug 10 @ 12:58pm 
Can you still get achievements and save stats with this, as long as you don't use the codes?

Can you make a video tutorial on how to install this addon please thanks
aaa ok
Ziggy  [author] Jul 26 @ 4:20pm 
Nope, I can't add new bahoviors for them.
can u make the bots pick up gas cans and fill the generator? and also revive players with defib?
ty daddy
make a version without the commands?
coolman3012 Jul 20 @ 6:43am 
when a tank dies they keep shooting it when it's dead can you fix that for me plz
Projekt34: Your God Jul 19 @ 11:50pm 
Bots are actually the same shit.Like really....Same shit!!! Dont think closing the safe room's door is an improvement.Its actually bad.
Ziggy  [author] Jul 16 @ 11:13am 
No, there are six keys listed there. Make sure you don't have the any of those keys bound to anything in your autoexec.cfg file because anything in that file will overwrite the settings in this addon.

Bots do not know who to use anything that is not in its default slot. If you move melee weapons to another slot bots will not know what melee weapons are or how to use them, so they'll just ignore them. There's nothing I can do about that.
DeBlueSeven Jul 16 @ 5:11am 
You say 6 keybinds are overwritten yet in that listenserver file there are only 4 configurable keys? What? Also F1-F3 usage is not working. And setting bot melee to 4 or whatever does nothing, they wont equip any melee. Although I am using the Real World Ammuntion mod which places melee weapons to slot 6 I believe instead of exchanging the secondary, that could conflict Idk, unfortuante if so.
