I'd like to modify an existing vocalizer, what do I need to add to it to make the look command spammable?
Hattori Hanzo Jan 5 @ 9:57pm 
If you ended up breaking vanilla keys like I did then here is a link to the default console command keys. It was a bitch and a half to find these lol. Now that I know how to fix these I'm gonna try to fix the vocalizer one more time.


Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the vanilla key commands
krtek2k Jan 5 @ 11:41am 
working great now. Thanks for the binds for the keys
Hattori Hanzo Jan 4 @ 3:46pm 
After binding the keys they all show in the console as unknown command. now my vanilla z and x vocalizers are broken so I give up. Getting this to work is beyond me especially when I follow the tutorial precisely and it still doesn't work.
radials wont show

I'm sorry guys... I forgot to even put the key binder in there. Well, it should work now. The default binds are here just in case: https://pastebin.com/VvcnmqcJ
Hattori Hanzo Jan 3 @ 9:22pm 
WEll I have had to manually bind keys before in the console but its been a long time, nor do I know what the commands are for this mods. So does anyone have a clue how to bind them in the console?
krtek2k Dec 31, 2017 @ 2:23pm 
it does. You dont even see the problem that I described. You cant set it thru the settings. Had to bind it thru console.
Doktor haus  [author] Dec 31, 2017 @ 2:02pm 
If you follow the video tutorial and the bind menu still doesn't show up, make sure this addon is enabled, and you don't have another vocalizer or radial menu on.
krtek2k Dec 31, 2017 @ 11:18am 
lol thats why workshop sucks. amateur developers sucks.
cocojack Dec 31, 2017 @ 11:10am 
I'll be honest this guy isn't "Dead", but rather dead in attempting to fix some issues on this. Trust me it is likely a pain to attempt to work around valves bs.
cocojack Dec 31, 2017 @ 11:05am 
lol? He doesn't have to mention anything in the description, there is no requirement for anything dumb like that. I think you need to chill dood. The issue is that .cfg files and such do not execute anymore via vpk files. Valve's "great" security fix. They are too lazy to go through the workshop and remove malicious addons, instead why not just block the "malicious" problem of it. You have to manually execute the cfg file and that is not even haus's fault. Many addons similar to this are having the same issue. There is a link to the cfg above, instead of crowding the workshop description more.
krtek2k Dec 31, 2017 @ 8:06am 
Okay I was wrong, even tho in that ad url was something like hausvocalizer string. nevermind

atleast fkin include the binding hotkeys or mention it in the description, if keyboard settings are not showing LOL

bind F1 "+MouseMenu1"
bind F2 "+MouseMenu2"
bind F3 "+MouseMenu3"
bind F4 "+MouseMenu4"
bind F5 "+MouseMenu5"
bind F6 "+MouseMenu6"
bind F7 "+MouseMenu9"
bind F8 "+MouseMenu7"
bind F9 "+MouseMenu8"
bind F10 "+MouseMenu10"
bind F11 "+MouseMenu11"
bind F12 "+MouseMenu12"
bind x "+mouseMenu0"

There are no ads in this; that's impossible to do with a workshop addon. You've just been playing on trashy servers.
cocojack Dec 30, 2017 @ 9:25pm 
oh shit I never even noticed that. Nice and thanks
krtek2k Dec 30, 2017 @ 9:17pm 
I downloaded the version 1.0 from link below, works perfect. no bullshit ads.
cocojack Dec 30, 2017 @ 9:15pm 
The real issue? Dead addon developer, valve has made some really weird "security patches", causing things like this to not work properly, and the guy never cared to patch it. + Yes there are some stupid extra crap in here. Whatever version it was before 2016 patches it was perfectly fine, thats where I actually enjoyed this addon.
krtek2k Dec 30, 2017 @ 8:40pm 
not working properly OFC. Console says
Initializing Doktor haus' vocalizer...
and not even single key option in keyboard options.

also has included some stupid ads which tries to load in MOTDS. fucking garbage.

♫Joe (USA)♫ Aug 24, 2017 @ 4:35pm 
I have a question to ask directly, Which is better, This or VOX? (Which offers more, Don't do it based on which one you side on, but which one is actually best)
Ah❤le Shitlеr Jul 20, 2017 @ 4:55pm 
If anyone wants the 1.0 version of this including the cfg file, you can download it here: https://l4d.no/addons/left4dead2-vocalizer.zip
Nothing is changed, just extracted the cfg file from the VPK.

I just tried the subscribed version, but not sure if I actually like it.
Valhalla May 25, 2017 @ 8:21pm 
Hey, the link appears to have died. Is there any fix for that?
trust me im like a smart person May 12, 2017 @ 9:21pm 
Unsubbed. Your vocalizer was the best one before you changed it.
Annorexorcist Apr 24, 2017 @ 4:51am 
Here's a copy of the linked CFG on PasteBin: https://pastebin.com/hA306DPb
Xæro Mar 23, 2017 @ 1:24pm 
link is dead.
it is a good idea to let it be hotsed on some crappy user server.

why not just post the content of the file in the description?????????????????????????????
killermaster3003 Mar 7, 2017 @ 12:15pm 
your vocalizer is dead now and we enjoy it :)
♠ Ässä Mar 5, 2017 @ 5:24am 
How can I save that CFG file as cfg?
Cymo Feb 25, 2017 @ 11:51am 
@« Counter-Life™ » thanks, now is working!!
OfficerDead Feb 25, 2017 @ 11:43am 
It works with the CFG file thx for the advice Doktor haus! :)
nerd basher Feb 24, 2017 @ 8:53pm 
is it still dead
cocojack Feb 24, 2017 @ 2:47pm 
WOOAH chill dude, read when it was last updated, he hasn't changed anything since the August of 2016. Valve has made an update to the game which broke addons like these:

“An update has been released for Left 4 Dead 2. - Configuration files are no longer loaded from addon vpks. These configuration values were sometimes used for malicious purposes, and all changes remained in the user's local settings even after the addon was disabled or removed. When necessary, addon authors should inform users of any required configuration changes in the description on the workshop page.”

Now he did release a cfg file it seems, and I haven't tried it yet but you also have to use the set launch options for it to execute.

Now like I said I haven't played the game or tried this since valve has made the change, but it isn't entirely Dokter Haus's fault for the time being. Who knows maybe there is something broken, but he hasn't updated it since August.
Counter-Life™ Feb 24, 2017 @ 1:35am 
Found a workaround, bind ALT via your config.cfg or console to "+menuPicker". Make sure you press mouse1 when choosing a character.
ï ∑å† Kïêϟϟ Feb 23, 2017 @ 9:19pm 
there's nothing to download through that link. am i supposed to copy and paste the text into notepad and then drop that file into CFG file?
リトルファックおもち Feb 23, 2017 @ 8:46pm 
@doktor you should have not changed this, it was working fine awhile ago but now it sucks
Cymo Feb 23, 2017 @ 3:40pm 
Doktor, F1-F12 is working, but I cant choose survivors with left alt
Metro-Police Feb 22, 2017 @ 1:43pm 
What console command?
Doktor haus  [author] Feb 22, 2017 @ 10:08am 
Download the CFG file above and place it in the CFG folder. Problem solved.
ButterBro Feb 22, 2017 @ 8:04am 
Again, it's not broken. You just have to use GCFScape to extract the addon files into the left4dead2 folder.
Metro-Police Feb 21, 2017 @ 11:59pm 
whats the console command? exec vocalizer cfg or soemthing
cocojack Feb 21, 2017 @ 11:12pm 
lol wtf valve, they decide to do this now after how many years? rip many addons
Misanthrope Feb 21, 2017 @ 4:59pm 
Update ruined it:( Is there any fix?
🍣Sushi-Swing Low!🍣 Feb 21, 2017 @ 1:57pm 

Valve has made a change in the new update:
“An update has been released for Left 4 Dead 2. - Configuration files are no longer loaded from addon vpks. These configuration values were sometimes used for malicious purposes, and all changes remained in the user's local settings even after the addon was disabled or removed. When necessary, addon authors should inform users of any required configuration changes in the description on the workshop page.”

I assume making the executing the vocalizer.cfg file impossible yes? I am not able to use the vocalizer anymore : (
ButterBro Feb 3, 2017 @ 8:18pm 
There's a simple fix. Just go to the workshop folder and extract everything from the VPK file to the left4dead2 folder.
Zeitgeist [ΞØP] Feb 3, 2017 @ 1:34pm 
Hi, for some reason it's not working for me. I hold in left alt when i get into a multiplayer server and it doesn't display and I've checked that the launch option contains +exec vocalizer.cfg in it and none of the keys I press work. pls help
ButterBro Feb 1, 2017 @ 7:39am 
Or hell even the chainsaw warcries would be enough for me.
Sharples Oct 6, 2016 @ 8:48am 
Would be nice to have dialogue that let's the Parish bridge guys speak like how you can make Virgil speak in special parts of the maps.
Valhalla Sep 24, 2016 @ 11:24am 
OOOOOOH that explains it, thank you. Bindings are different now.
Revolver Ocelot Sep 13, 2016 @ 3:35am 
@Exceemon It is possible you didn't type exec vocalized.cfg into the console. If you did, the voice command binds are F1 - F10 and left Alt is character select menu.
Valhalla Sep 12, 2016 @ 11:26pm 
Been using this for a long time. Never had any problems. Fired up the game on my new PC finally, and...I can only see Nick's voice commands? And some of the menus are entirely gone, like specials and character select....What happened?
