It works. You must have a conflicting addon installed.
iNightmareBonnieFNaF Nov 29 @ 9:53am 
well it dosnt work
NightRider122 Nov 21 @ 4:36pm

Ziggy  [author] Nov 17 @ 4:03pm 
I can't, unfortunately.

Make it work with addon campaigns for survival
Ziggy  [author] Oct 2 @ 8:09pm 
It might enable cheats on your server though. The simple version is designed to be server-friendly.
FoxDash Oct 2 @ 3:23pm 
so this addon is just for single player, huh? i play it in online, and sometimes the game stop with "pause" on screen. anoying... hahahaha!if isn't for this, it'be perfect for online, too.

I like this addon, but can you make it so there's no unlimited fuel?
FaZeDragon75 Aug 22 @ 1:33am 
thanks this worked great when playing solo versus and all the improvements work
PÖIЙ† βLΛЙK Aug 15 @ 2:11am 
Is there an addon with a similar main menu interface for singleplayer, but still allow character change? I like how it is in this mod, but I would like one either separate from this addon, or allow you to select your character without invalidating achievements

Any idea what would cause this mod+slimhud+captian americans shield to cause my game to crash to desktop when me and a friend try to host a campaign?

Ziggy  [author] Aug 13 @ 4:48pm 
Are you starting the game through the new single player menu that this addon adds?
Sleazy Chickenbiscuits Aug 13 @ 4:32pm 
Nope, its the only addon I have.
Ziggy  [author] Aug 13 @ 3:41pm 
You probably have another addon installed that is conflicting with this one.
Sleazy Chickenbiscuits Aug 13 @ 10:50am 
None of this worked. Chainsaw wasn't unlimited, couldn't melee while down, etc. Not sure if I did something wrong or...?
flightedbird Jul 16 @ 10:02pm 
Is there a reason I can't choose my character now?
Grand Nep Pudding Jul 9 @ 8:09am 
it addes the hidden weapons?
Djthebest1337 Jun 29 @ 6:59pm 
I'm pressing 7 but nothing happens. Any reason why?
Ziggy  [author] Jun 24 @ 4:11pm 
That addon is included in this one. If you have both of them installed you will need to disable Improved Bots from the addons menu in-game.
AlienParasiteGuy Jun 24 @ 4:06pm 
Hey your other mod that makes the Cpu's Smarter wont coop with this one.
The Skeleton King Jun 15 @ 9:30am 
It won't let me choose my character for single player campaigns
(Faultz)Fluttershy May 28 @ 6:11pm 
Thanks for telling me!
Ziggy  [author] May 28 @ 6:04pm 
This addon includes the Improved Bots addon, so there's no need to have that enabled if you are using this addon. It might prevent this addon from working properly.
(Faultz)Fluttershy May 28 @ 5:09pm 
If have already installed improved bots advanced will this throw anything off? in it?
Drokash May 25 @ 9:29am 
That explains it, it's a shame but it's not too much of a problem for me. Thanks for responding anyway ^^
Ziggy  [author] May 25 @ 9:04am 
It conflicts with the any vocalize addons because they both modify the radial menus file. The advanced version includes radial menus to easily change certain game settings and allow you to control the bots with a few commands.

It conflicts with menu addons because I had to create a custom single player menu, as part of the game's main menu. This is because certain features in the advanced version can only work on what is called a listen server, which the game does not allow you to play on through the normal menus.

Usually you can only start a listen server by starting a game through the developer's console, but I was able to make a menu that automatically enters the correct developer console commands for you. The downside to this is that you cannot select your character or difficulty, which is why I added the radial menus that allow you to change those settings in-game.
Drokash May 25 @ 3:30am 
This one interferes with the VXL Vocalize mod and the Urik Game Menu with Rayman's Mutation Mod for some reason, but the General Improvements (Simple) doesn't. Any idea why it would interfere? (I'm guessing the key bindings)
TheBreakfastBoy May 16 @ 4:59pm 
This would be amazing.. without the 7 for Melee
Old Gr@ndpa Narwal Apr 25 @ 8:08am 
Chainsaws cut through hordes a little more smoothly and have unlimited fuel.

''Reduced fall damame and increased distance to recieve fall damage to more realistic''

It may be something on my end, but when I press seven to swap out my melee, it does not work. Though it does work when I scroll my mouse, though I'd much rather hit seven.

why the zombies like from fire just come out
King Adrian Mar 17 @ 10:06am 
I love this addon, but for some reason after a few days of use, the seperate Melee, and Pistols doesnt work. Also the bots became stupid again, like tossing themselves off a roof (in No Mercy) It is not Highlighted in Red on my Addons folder. What should I do?

Here is a link to the work I have done with your mod as inspiration http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=390662396
Airpyr8t Feb 10 @ 11:45pm 
So i was able to reistate the full orginal ui with the left for dead 1 missions included (though not in the right order, they are all after lfd2 missions). made the zombies a little slower (more like walking dead speed) and a lot tougher so they don't go down with one shot unless its to the head or very close shotgun blast. Unfortunately the being able to have melee pistol and heavy weapon is not working anymore. still would love some help with the ai tweaking
Airpyr8t Feb 10 @ 2:07pm 
Liking this mod a lot -- tweaked a few things like removing the glow from survivors and long distance item glow for single player too for added realism. Also added cvar to allow all survivors to use mele weapons. Now What I would like to do is tweak the ai to use melee weapons over firearms to kinda improve a stealth like aspect of the game kinda like walking dead show rule: don't use fire arms unless you absolutely have to. And from previous requests I see that there is no way you can re introduce player select,campaign select, level select, and difficulty ui's? There has to be a way. ( yes i already know there's a level select ui and the f2 key but that enables cheating and disables achievements). Also looking to introduce some elements from the Romero mod. If you want to pair up and make this mod even more awesome lemme know
SKROLLEX Feb 9 @ 1:05pm 
man i removed all the conflicting files but it is crashing my game during the loadings. do survivor skins conflict with this mod?
Ziggy  [author] Feb 5 @ 5:46am 
It is possible, but I won't do that for two reasons:

1) It isn't possible to add the ammo for pistols to the HUD, so the player would have no idea how much ammo they have.

2) Players could get stuck without any possible way to defend themselves. While some players may find that fun, I think it would be more appropriate as its own addon.
HylianWolf Feb 4 @ 11:00pm 
This mod is awesome! Is there a way you can make pistols have their own ammo? It seems rediculous that primary weapons have limited ammo but pistols dont? Lol make this happen!
Ziggy  [author] Jan 31 @ 4:05pm 
Yeah, it loads the scripts in that file every time it loads a new map.
Morbuzka Jan 31 @ 12:34pm 
Thanks a million. Will autoexec also execute on loading a new level? Sorry I forgot to mention this, but the addon also rebinds alt every time I unbind it whenever I load a new level, campaign, versus, or anything.
Ziggy  [author] Jan 31 @ 11:22am 
The autoexec.cfg file doesn't exist by default, so you'll need to create it.

1) Go to Left 4 Dead 2's config folder (\left4dead2\cfg\)
2) Create a copy of one of the config files and rename it to autoexec.cfg
3) Open the autoexec.cfg file in a text editor (such as Notepad) and delete everything in it.
4) Type this into the autoexec.cfg file:

unbind "alt"; bind "x" "bots_radial"

Just change x to whichever key you want it bound to.
Morbuzka Jan 31 @ 10:26am 
Hey, I just wanna start by saying thanks for creating these mods, both General Improvements and Improved Bots Advanced. Excellent mods, especially if you are unable to play online because of bad ping from bad internet.

My issue is that I play my game windowed no border, because I like to Alt-Tab a lot. However, I can't seem to find the right .cfg file that controls what key bots_radial gets autobound to, since it always gets bound to Alt, and when I alt tab, it locks my mouse outside of the game to the same radius as the wheel. I've searched for an autoexec.cfg in the entire left4dead2 folder, but nothing gets found. I've also tried to use gfcscape and change the key in the .cfg in there to bind to Del rather than Alt, but when I enter the game and check bound keys, it's still bound to Alt. Do you think you could direct me to how I can change bots_radial to automatically bind to Del or some other key rather than Alt? Thanks.

OK Thanks.
Ziggy  [author] Jan 24 @ 9:18am 
Sorry, there's nothing I can do about that. In order to use the bot commands I need to enable cheats for the server you are on. The problem is that cheats can only be enabled on something called listen servers. Those aren't the servers the game uses by default, so I needed to create a new menu that would do that.

The game's default menus aren't capable of creating listen servers either, which is why I had to use the style of menu that you see now. That menu does allow me to start the game on a listen server, but is unable to remember other values, such as character or difficulty.

This is why I created the in-game radial menus for switching those things. Press F2 in-game to select your character or F3 to change the difficulty.
[U.G.L.I] Ubercharged F2P Jan 24 @ 1:11am 
While i do love the mod, what really bugs me is the new options for the title, i load up Single player, i get options that rather shocked me because i didnt expect that. I choose a level and bam! Doesnt allow me to choose a character, and there are specific characters i want to play as and the auto-assign *which is what im calling it* will assign me to a character i dont have much intrest in or dont enjoy. If you could fix this please tell me.
Ziggy  [author] Jan 23 @ 7:45pm 
The addon won't work online. There's nothing I can do about that, sorry.
The Vile Reaper Jan 23 @ 7:17pm 
this mod finally works completely for me! However I did notice when playing with a friend online (who I also got to sub to your mod) some features didn't work. Like the melee weapon not having it's own slot, the bots not getting their upgrades, being slowed down when hit, and not being able to crawl. Everything else worked and I understand this is a difficult mod to manage due to it's size and complexity and im sure you will get it all worked out in time.
