@Ziggy Thanks a lot!

@Mint:
Did you unsubscribe from it by clicking the button at the top of this page? If so the addon should uninstall itself the next time you launch the game. If it doesn't then you may need to uninstall it manually. From Steam's root folder (wherever you have it installed), go to this folder:

\SteamApps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\addons\workshop\

In that folder, find and delete this file: 121071938.vpk

The addon should now be uninstalled. Just let me know if you have trouble with anything.

@DopeAap:
The simple version doesn't have the radial menus that the advanced version has and won't block Steam achievements.


@tk:
No, this addon won't work if you join a server with it installed. It only works for single player. I'm not sure if it is possible to install an addon to a multiplayer server. That's a question you'll have to ask elsewhere, such as the official forums or the Steam Community Hub .

Can this this add-on be used on Official servers?
How can I use this addon in multiplayer game?

What's the difference between Simple and advanced exactly?
mint Feb 24 @ 3:46pm 
when i tried to uninstall it, it stayed installed pretty much but bugged me out with those two things. im not trying to be rude :(
Ziggy  [author] Feb 24 @ 3:44pm 
It doesn't do either of those things. If you don't mind, could you please explain what happened with more details?
mint Feb 24 @ 2:25pm 
skips rescues and disables panic events. not a really good addon

This addon is required for solo play.

darn
Ziggy  [author] Feb 16 @ 8:40am 
No. I can't make them do that.
totb183™ Feb 16 @ 7:05am 
Can they pick up and use things like pipebombs and the ammo types?
Bone Feb 15 @ 12:46pm 
muy util para campañas en experto! saludos

Bots will now willingly walk directly into a fire or acid pool. Pretty bad.
MaBra Feb 6 @ 3:08am 
Whyd does it conflict with Urik HUD main?
Agus Feb 4 @ 2:48pm 
Muy bueno
ZEPIA Feb 3 @ 12:20pm 
what's a advanced and simple Distinction?
@Ziggy Cool, thanks!
Ziggy  [author] Feb 2 @ 8:32pm 
I modified one UI file to remove the message saying that you've been overwhelmed whien you die. If the in-game addons menu is saying there is a coflict with a UI addon you can just ignore it.
How does this mod conflict with different UI's?
Bain Jan 27 @ 4:50pm 
Yeah. If you stand idle when the level's done, they do it automatically.
Ziggy  [author] Jan 27 @ 4:25pm 
Are they now? They weren't able to back when I made the addon.
Bain Jan 27 @ 3:34pm 
"• Bots can perform some simple actions, such as closing safe room doors."

They're already capable of closing doors.
._.

But still, great mod, just a bit of a nitpick on my part.
Joey245 Jan 24 @ 12:49pm 
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
Ziggy  [author] Jan 17 @ 4:56pm 
That's not something this addon would do. I'm not sure what happened there.
The Walrus In Yer Closet :3 Jan 17 @ 4:44pm 
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.
4eyes Jan 8 @ 5:27am 
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.
HK-47 Jan 5 @ 2:05pm 
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.
Mr. Foster Dec 26, 2014 @ 7:10am 
@TheEngiGuy Are you playing Local Server? Scripts only work with that.
Tqker Dec 16, 2014 @ 8:06am 
thx for addon:)
justintime39 Dec 11, 2014 @ 2:19pm 
conflicts with semi automatic grenade launcher V2
VGs Dec 9, 2014 @ 8:50pm 
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.
♠ Hoxtolicious ♠ 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 ?
Metalhead Nov 20, 2014 @ 8:11pm 
conflits with neunGUI .
Psykotik™ Nov 10, 2014 @ 7:01pm 
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?
ThePeter104 Oct 13, 2014 @ 9:34pm 
they wont move on its just game over when i die :(
male_07 Oct 5, 2014 @ 6:04pm 
Good, although the bots SUCK when it comes to being choked by a smoker.
Domino 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:
