Are you using a script to make it brighter or something? If so, that's why and there's nothing I can do about that.

File scripts/gamemodes.txt collides in VPKs:
Improved Bots (Simple)
UltraViolet Flashlight

For some bizarre reason. Your improved bots mod conflicts with my UltraViolet Flashlight mod for some insane reason. Please fix.

Some of the time bots will react slower
Damager Mar 17 @ 3:54am 
ok i have aproblem
Damager Mar 15 @ 5:13pm 
Ok so can u make those shotgun holders like coach hold assult rifles?

I've received a lot of mixed feedback about bots with melee weapons, so I think it's best to leave it set at one. The advanced version of this addon allows you to change how many bots use melee to whatever you want, though.

ok i like how rochelle close the door wwhich is abot
Damager Mar 15 @ 4:31am 
But they react less slower
Damager Mar 15 @ 4:31am 
Only one bot can hold melee can u makeit to 2 ?
Ziggy  [author] Mar 14 @ 11:44pm 
Yes.
Damager Mar 14 @ 11:32pm 
Does it work for single player?

you should be able to use this mod just fine in a multiplayer server if you host the server as a local dedicated. will find out when i play with a friend..

@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 .
tk Feb 26 @ 6:03am 
Can this this add-on be used on Official servers?
How can I use this addon in multiplayer game?
DopeAap Feb 25 @ 8:21am 
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.
totb183™ Feb 16 @ 12:57pm 
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?
Guiso 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?
Garielys Feb 4 @ 2:48pm 
Muy bueno

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.
