So What happens if the player dies during a "collect the gas can" segment? Will they eventually find the missing survivor in a closet somewhere or will they just keep fighting zambies till they die too? Cause they don't seem able to pick up gas cans to finish it, so I'm the only hope they might have.

@Ziggy Wow, im so dumb sometimes...all I had to do was restart my game, so now it's working just fine! :3

That's not something this addon would do. I'm not sure what happened there.

When I went into singleplayer, they just stood around doing nothing... They wouldn't follow me, and they wouldn't shoot any zombies :/
Ziggy  [author] Jan 11 @ 9:44pm 
Yeah, unfortunately I can't fix every issue with the bots.

one wierd thing is the bot stop shooting especialy when their surrounded
Ziggy  [author] Jan 5 @ 2:26pm 
Yep, that's it. I don't think there is a way to modify the preferred weapons for each bot.

Ok, found the one for melee -- sb_max_team_melee_weapons. Just one question left, how to make Coach and Ellis pick magnums :)
HK-47 Jan 5 @ 1:45pm 
I can manage that, sure. Can you tell me which variable to change? Also, is there a way to change preferred secondary weapons for Ellis and Coach so that all bots get Magnums?
Ziggy  [author] Jan 4 @ 6:14pm 
No, sorry. I don't want any options in this version because that's what makes it the simple version. It's a simple script addon, so if you just unpack the VPK file you can edit any of the variables in the script to the way you want them. A quick Google search will find a guide on how to unpack VPK files; it's very easy.
HK-47 Jan 4 @ 2:08pm 
Can you add the toggle for melee weapons to this addon or make a version without melee? They play very bad with melee, I'd rather have that disabled.

@TheEngiGuy Are you playing Local Server? Scripts only work with that.

thx for addon:)

conflicts with semi automatic grenade launcher V2

it was an extreme advance in change their AI but, they still making the same things tha make them bots:
look at you when you are getting f*** by some SI and asks "do you need help?" and after some seconds kill the SI.
Rubberfruit Dec 6, 2014 @ 2:59pm 
Can you make them Open Doors.?
Lesas Dec 2, 2014 @ 12:36pm 
Hey, I am interested in installing your mod to my server. What must I do ?

Can bots lead for you?
Don't you, Forget about me. Oct 26, 2014 @ 11:36am 
This breaks the bots in no mercy. Once you get to the elevator they just stop moving.
TheEngiGuy Oct 14, 2014 @ 4:59am 
Works like a charm in singleplayer, but I can't get it to work for multiplayer in my friend's host. Any suggestion?
Little Mac Oct 13, 2014 @ 9:34pm 
they wont move on its just game over when i die :(
top lel Oct 5, 2014 @ 6:04pm 
Good, although the bots SUCK when it comes to being choked by a smoker.
Calora Oct 2, 2014 @ 2:24am 
What soldier said. The bots tend to just stand there and start daydreaming for several seconds whenever they're completely surrounded.
Pigeon soldier Sep 30, 2014 @ 9:00am 
Ziggy, will it turn off the steam achievments if you made the bots aim better and see better? Because it will be awesome if it doesnt. and try to make the bots do something when they are being damaged by common infected from all around the bot. Thanks

Ah thanks Ziggy! keep up the good work! c:
Ziggy  [author] Sep 28, 2014 @ 8:31am 
No, you won't get banned for using this on servers. However, in order for it to work on servers it will need to be installed to the server. Joining a server with it installed to your game will do nothing. Installing it to your game will only make it work for single player games.
Nelson01023 Sep 27, 2014 @ 8:29pm 
I'd rate this a 10/10,this absolutely essential to any and all playthrough.
Frankie Sep 27, 2014 @ 8:31am 
This mod is probobly the best mod i seen yet. I must ask tho. Can i get banned if i use this mod on online servers like survival or campaign co op? Please respond!
morrae Sep 26, 2014 @ 7:03am 
Unplayable in expert. This idiots always go right in front of you while you shooting, thus killing themselves over and over.
Davos Sep 26, 2014 @ 12:26am 
Sweeeet.
Randomness HD Sep 16, 2014 @ 1:37pm 
DumBoCow the difference is that u have keys to press for stuff like what i just said
Randomness HD Sep 16, 2014 @ 1:36pm 
Virgil Advanced has that
DumBoCow Sep 15, 2014 @ 1:47am 
what's the difference of advance and simple?
Virgil Sep 14, 2014 @ 10:29pm 
I have a suggestion that I am not sure is possible. Can you add the ability to take over one of the other survivors if the one you were playing as is killed? I found some cresendo events the bots were unable to finish in custom maps, and they just stood around no knowing what to do.
TommyCD1 Sep 6, 2014 @ 3:54pm 
I know they won't ever use them, but do you think you could get the bots to just pick up grenades and defibs. For looks?
Shait Sep 3, 2014 @ 4:03am 
This doesn't work.. not in local not even in singleplayer.
TehMoeyFTW Sep 2, 2014 @ 6:51pm 
What is the difference between simple and advanced?
Mecha Zeon Sep 1, 2014 @ 12:08am 
Bots will continue to play after you have died instead of ending the game. READ!
Darrark Aug 27, 2014 @ 5:59pm 
I experienced something... odd. Don't know if this was added, but in No Mercy the bots actually triggered the finale after I had died-- I could swear they were only able to perform "simple" actions; triggering the finale doesn't *seem* like a simple action.
freexavier Aug 25, 2014 @ 9:42am 
I experience a problem with this. I was playing Verses with my friends with a server I hosted and after playing for a bit. The game hangs & black screens. I hope you can adress this problem.
Whiterun Guard Aug 24, 2014 @ 3:37pm 
Will it get you VAC Banned?

Okay i dont think the COntiue bot thing works either
☢ℸ∅XI₡☢ Jul 29, 2014 @ 7:49am 
DOu its a good addon
☢ℸ∅XI₡☢ Jul 29, 2014 @ 7:49am 
Idk.The bots Didin't react when i got a jockey on me.or the melee trick
Jester of Rλvenholm Jul 24, 2014 @ 5:28pm 
They use positols even when they have full ammo. And it makes us all die very easily.
Brian Jul 23, 2014 @ 9:23pm 
I thought this mod was causing the problem with the pipe bomb. I disabled every add-on, including this one, and I still get that problem. The bot players freeze and do nothing until a pipe bomb explodes. I guess they do that to prevent themselves from taking any damage from a pipe bomb.
Rocko Jul 19, 2014 @ 3:16pm 
doesnt work they never heal me and they always commit suicide
AuraMasterVeres Jul 13, 2014 @ 7:04pm 
how do you play versus in singleplayer?
