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.

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.

Idk.The bots Didin't react when i got a jockey on me.or the melee trick

They use positols even when they have full ammo. And it makes us all die very easily.

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.

doesnt work they never heal me and they always commit suicide
how do you play versus in singleplayer?

How about making them pick up Pipe bombs, Molotovs, and Bile Jars?

Amazingly interesting!!

But it will be more super interesting to add a special feature to the mod: "Can continue alone to find the next safe room/rescue point if the ONLY ONE player died"..

It will be then so excellent if when we are the only one player, when we died, we are moved to spectator mode (and then it's not trigger the Game Over window...) so the bot can rescue us and if they can't continue along the map alone...

That's perhaps possible, but... I'm not a modder. Can you tell me if it's possible or not ?

So What's New? Jul 1 @ 8:31pm 
I've noticed that at many times while playing, the fact that the game keeps playing can be an annoyance, is there anyway to restart the chapter alone (voting only has restarting the campaign mission entirely)?
Something else I noticed while playing - the bots are incapable of talking to Whitaker through the PA system (patch?). Use of throwable objects such as mollys would also be nice, although I'm sure it would be very difficult. MAKE A FAQ PLS <3
Add something that they can pick up pipebombs moltovs and boomer bile plz thx
I want to add that the ai standing in a smaller circle, shooting AROUND, all that stuff works well and they don't trail off real far like normally. They're not as bad at melee as you'd think (at least Ellis with an axe isn't).

In Versus they're more brutal than regular ai, but like in SP expert they're still a mess with common infected. I honestly put the blame on Valve and their generally poor ai programming.

Good effort on the uploaders part, especially for tweaking the add on over the years. It'd be nice if Valve gave us ai that wasn't so clumsy at the least.
Some of this mods pretty cool, like bots using melee weapons and how they'll pull out melees at fitting times, that and GENERALLY they're quicker with saving you.

At the same time, they'll do stupid stuff like sit there and let just one or two common slowly slap them to death while they stair off, or you'll get smokered, caugt on something, and they'll stair and you in awe.

Just playing Dead Center today on Expert was next to impossible with how clumsy the ai was, running into fire, healing me in spitter goo, seperating from me to save a nearly dead survivor, oui.

This is great me and my girlfriend get really pissed off at how retarded the AI are all the time keep up the good work man.

I have a few complaints:
When I played Hard Rain
1. Every now and then one of them would lag behind
2. Sometimes they won't do anything even though they're getting surrounded by zombies
3. I got incapacitated once (I got pounced by a Hunter) and none of them would come and rescue me (They weren't moving AT ALL) and they only started moving once I died.
4. They took about 10 seconds to react to me being jockied or smoked.

great for forever alone people :'( but now i am happy :D

Good Mod For Alone Player's ;)
Agent Zero Jun 3 @ 1:13pm 
I discovererd an error with the bots. For whatever reason, they aren't coded to shoot at Dead Air styled destructable barracades after the player is deceased, leaving them standing dumbly in front, staring blankly.
xTSx Coke Cane Jun 3 @ 10:50am 
fix the problem where they rescue me when i die. they come for me but they dont open the door and teleport to the other person.
TommyCD1 Jun 2 @ 11:15pm 
This is a really nice mod. But when I use it, for some reason when I die, the banner at the top that says 'YOU ARE DEAD' isn't there anymore. Is anyone else having this problem and is there a way it can be fixed?
BONKERS Jun 2 @ 11:10pm 
This constantly crashes in MP even on a local server with sv_consistency 0.

:(

My friend and I need this.
DλBz Jun 2 @ 4:09pm 
Does this work in VS mode?
[S.E.A.R.] D3@tH-KnIghT Jun 2 @ 4:37am 
works only on single need fix, the bots don't continue when players are down
ڶÍᴹᴮÍṭᶊ ® Jun 1 @ 1:24pm 
After some testing I've found the same thing. Single player works fine it's when I play on local server with friends that it falls over. The friends have the same mod installed as well.
It appears you can only use it in Single Player.
The game crashed for me after the first map of the campaing(No Mercy) playing with a friend with a Local Server.
Lumberjack May 27 @ 5:09pm 
Yeah, sorry. It seems that it's either A) Multiplayer. Hosting a local server and not letting anyone else in, I don't get crashes. B) My buddies computer. When I commented earlier, we were playing on his locally hosted server. or C) A function that was doing nothing inside my own mod that has now been removed.
I just finished running my first full campaign with this mod on (Plus my own Romero mod) and it's been the first time that all my NPC's survived the finale! Sure, they didn't seem to want to use melee weapons, and they were still pretty dumb when it came time to get on the plane, but overall, I'd give them an A for effort. Compared with their previous scoring of a low D this is a marked improvement. Thanks for a cool mod dziggy :)
Greenmann May 27 @ 2:01pm 
works fine for me
Lumberjack May 27 @ 1:19am 
Same here. Game crashed in Dead Air after the first map while the second was loading. I was really enjoying the bots behavior right up until that happened. Also, this mod adds a bazillion gamemodes. Not sure why that got packaged in there, it seems like maybe it's deserving of it's own mod :/
ڶÍᴹᴮÍṭᶊ ® May 25 @ 11:43am 
Yeah I'm getting crashes when loading new chapters of maps with this now. Which is a shame because this mod used to be amazing.
[CoC] Mosquito May 18 @ 5:14am 
The mod isn't working...

And maybe about alittle recognition of objective doors such as the coke /: (not demanding, just saying bug) (screenshot in my library)
Killermen962™ May 17 @ 2:20pm 
Any chance you could make them able to throw bile and stuff? after about 6 seconds for a player not touching something throwable, bots will take it and if they detect a amount of dmg taken or many zombies, it will take a estimite of the middle of the hoarde and throw it

Look at the advanced version description.

you are a saint good sir.

what's the console command for bot menu?
«DragønHeart» May 1 @ 11:22am 
I have a problem of crash when loading the next chapter of map with l4d1 charecters too, but I wasn't sure which addon causes it..
[MDG] Jirdas666 May 1 @ 8:07am 
Finally! I was always pissed by getting killed when my bot squad was somewhere else and giving zero fuck about me.
Streetlight Moopi (Oh, OKAY) Apr 30 @ 10:10pm 
I'm not sure if the mod was incorrectly installed (I reinstalled it a few times just in case), but when there's only one bot left, it seems to get confused and results in just running back and forth. Despite me being stuck in a room nearby (like when you die, and your character respawns in a closed room), the bot would still just run in a pattern. Anyone have a solution?
SkinWalker Apr 29 @ 3:10am 
wow man. i used this add-on before, and it worked great.
Ziggy ±PGD*±  [author] Apr 27 @ 1:33pm 
Maybe a file this addon uses has been updated then. I will check on that.
