So what do I propose to do?

That means no program is set as the default program to open that type of file when you double click it. If you right-click the file there should be an option to open it with notepad. If not you will need to double click it and use the window that pops up to select a program to open it with.
I went to the Library section and right clicked Left 4 Dead 2. I went down to Properties, clicked on Local Files and then clicked Browse Local Files... I then opened the left4dead2 folder and then the cfg folder. The listenserver.cfg isn't a file but instead has a paper icon. What's the problem? Is it suppose to be like that??
listenserver.cfg has a paper icon instead of a file icon

You need to navigate to a specific folder, create a file, then copy the text that's in the linked thread and paste it into that file. Go to the location that you have the game installed, you'll see a folder called left4dead2 . Open that and look for another folder called cfg . In that folder you need to find and open the listenserver.cfg file. You can open it with any text editor program, such as Notepad (comes installed on Windows).

After that you need to click this link and copy all of that text into the listenserver.cfg file that you opened in your text editor. Save the file and you're ready to go.

When I was wondering why the mod wasn't working, I went & saw the description. But I understood nothing (what I'm supposed to do after downloading the mod).

Is there a way to make the melee not have its own melee slot and instead take pistol like usually?

Would this work on a private server with someone else who has this downloaded? Or is it only possible to use this in an offline campaign?
Ziggy  [author] Mar 11 @ 4:39pm 
Did you follow the additional step in the description?
could you help me? it doesnt work

Joke's on the workshop, back to normal apart from other addons without doing anything to listenserver.cfg
Hotdog Feb 27 @ 10:04am 
Ok, thanks!
Ziggy  [author] Feb 27 @ 10:01am 
Everything except the title.
Hotdog Feb 27 @ 9:47am 
Do I have to copy everything in that page with the things I have to copy/paste, or just everything below the rebindable commands?
IdioticGamer24 Feb 24 @ 9:06pm 
ah ok thnx xD
Ziggy  [author] Feb 24 @ 9:20am 
Typo. That was supposed to be listenserver.cfg. Sorry about that!
IdioticGamer24 Feb 24 @ 12:03am 
i only have listenserver.cfg
IdioticGamer24 Feb 24 @ 12:00am 
cant find the localserver thingy 0,0
Nuggi84 [DK] Feb 23 @ 10:15pm 
never mind, it works just fine now, thanks for this fix and Mod :)
Ziggy  [author] Feb 23 @ 8:15pm 
New instructions have been added to the description! Make sure you read and follow them to ensure this addon continues to work properly!


For those who are unaware, the game was updated earlier this week to prevent config files from being loaded by addons. This addon uses config files to make certain things, such as the radial menus, function properly. This means that you will now need to edit the config file yourself, and manually add the script that I have provided.

im getting this error and i cant use it anymore :/

Can you make this work with unlimited ammo mod? Sometimes I like to run through with unlimited ammo for fun, but bots suck. It would be nice to have bots be somewhat normal. I used to get this to work with infinite ammo mod with the Chuck Norris avatar on it, but that stopped working all together for some reason. The guy apparently can't fix it.
Ziggy  [author] Feb 17 @ 8:19am 
Several people have told me similar stories in the past, but I have no idea why that happens for some people. I've never experienced that myself. There's nothing I can do about it though. It would have to be something to do with the way Valve enables and disables addons.

So I think it glitched for me, I hosted a local server and at first friends couldnt join. But after I went back to addons and unchecked "general improvements" they were able to join. But the script files were still there and we still had all the features of this mod - extra slot for melee weapon, not slowed by attacking zombies, etc.
Ziggy  [author] Feb 16 @ 2:09pm 
I don't think so, but I've never tried it.
kyuuren Feb 16 @ 12:35am 
Does this work if you invite friends to a local host game?
Shepard Feb 15 @ 3:14pm 
Hey, just wanted to say that im a huge fan of this mod and would like to take the time to stop and thank you. Keep up the good work.
kangaroo Feb 11 @ 5:46pm 
Players not slowed by getting hit?
Good, 1 common infected can't prevent all movement anymore.

Chainsaws have unlimited fuel?
Total win.
Cronaice Feb 2 @ 7:01pm 
can you make this mod without any changes on guns (ammo, dmg,...)?
SergeantTittySlapper Jan 26 @ 9:04am 
I just recently downloaded this mod, before I only had the improved bots, saw this and jumped for it, nice that it has the other mod too. [But i'm having an issue] my bots aren't responding to infected, they help eachother and pick supplies up, but they won't shoot or attack anything. Help?
Luffy Jan 22 @ 11:23am 
@Ziggy Thanks a lot man, i need that a lot, i love this mod a lot but i really need the melee weapon too, i followed you btw keep up the great work
Ziggy  [author] Jan 22 @ 9:56am 
You can do that as well. Just open up the developer's console (enable it in the options menu if you need to) and use this command:

bind "x" "slot7"

Change x to whatever key you want to use.
Luffy Jan 22 @ 8:20am 
@ziggy oh i knew that, but i thought you can change the #7 put to any bind but its fine as scroll wheel i guess
Ziggy  [author] Jan 22 @ 5:40am 
Scroll wheel should work too.Either scroll up from your primary weapon or down from the pills slot.
Luffy Jan 21 @ 7:32pm 
Is there a way to change the slot for the melee weapon? i really can't stand number 7 as my bind to switch to my melee weapon, its too far and slow for me to take it out
Shade Jan 8 @ 12:38pm 
I'd reccomend you making an additional hud so we can see our slots, even when playing Online.
laser eye kitten Jan 8 @ 7:31am 
i wana use my gun while im down
Harmy Jan 6 @ 2:54pm 
Not a fan of the GUI changes, because it doesn't allow me to use custom mutations on standard maps.
I Darkstar X Dec 12, 2016 @ 12:20pm 
Also, bots won't pick up and use melee weapons since they have their own slot now.
☠Captz☠ | Captain4Bob Dec 11, 2016 @ 3:44am 
Can you make one with unlimited ammo? conflicts with it if not making unlimited ammo and crawl only + no heat from turrets
Svarzter Oct 23, 2016 @ 1:53pm 
I found the problem. I looked throught your other mods and found a guide for local server playing. And it works now. All fine! :-)
Thanks for this mode, really helpful.
Ziggy  [author] Oct 23, 2016 @ 1:49pm 
You must have a conflicting addon installed.
Svarzter Oct 23, 2016 @ 12:59pm 
Hey, I have a problem. General improvments stopped working. Same with simple. For me and my friends. Bots act like zombies, no meele on 7, etc. Can you help? I don't know what's going on.
lolznoboz Oct 17, 2016 @ 4:41pm 
"Moved melee weapon to its own slot. (Press 7 or cycle between primary weapon and pain pills.)"
can you make this in it's own mod
Ziggy  [author] Oct 7, 2016 @ 3:35pm 
@DooM^XyIA:
I don't think there is anything I can do about that.


@ChooMcoo:
Sorry, there's nothing I can do about compatibility with other addons. If two addons madify the same file there is no way to make them work together other than manually merging them.
JewMcoo Sep 17, 2016 @ 12:17pm 
This mod overwrites my magnum script making it useless and i really want to use this. can you try to fix this plz?
ApparitioN Sep 14, 2016 @ 9:16pm 
I have a bug that's not intended to be i guess... So, the bug is that when playing in Versus mode in Singleplayer, there are only 4 specials, and if 1 of those specials die, they don't respawn, in which if you kill all of them, the server will automatically shut down because there needs to be atleast 1 player playing(SIs) because you killed all of them, hopefully Ziggy reads this and maybe patchs this! Thanks for stopping and reading this bug report.
