2.8 Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 isn’t exactly the easiest game to mod and if you’ve played Steam games on PC you’ll pretty much know how it works. I admit I do not know all the commands off the top of my head, so credits to the original finder/poster of them. I’ll try to explain how to do this in the simplest way possible.
So, to start off start up a game of Left 4 Dead 2 a choose your USB as the device to save to. Once you’ve done this the UserSettings file should be save to your USB device and you should be ready to start modding.* Once you’ve saved the file to your USB open up Horizon and go into the Memory Unit Manager tool. Find your profile directory and navigate to the folder which says ‘Left 4 Dead 2’, in that should be the file ‘UserSettings’. Highlight this file and the L4D2 icon should appear, click this and the game modder should appear ready for you to edit.
Once it’s open the first thing you’ll see is a whole bunch of settings, you don’t need to worry about these just yet, so where you see the words ‘left4dead2_cfg_pri.cfg’ click that drop down menu and select ‘left4dead2_cfg_ss.cfg’, this is where you get to mod. When you see the .cfg contents you’ll see binds for each button on the controller, the modding you will do will pretty much make these into commands you want. For example, if you wanted to spawn a Boomer by pressing the A button you would change the A bind to “A_BUTTON” “z_spawn boomer”.
Here are the spawn commands:
Now say you wanted to bind the B button to give you an ak47 you would change the B bind to “B_BUTTON” “give rifle_ak47”
Here are the give commands:’
Here are other frequently used commands which can also be binded:
These are the levels which work with the ‘changelevel’ command:
Now we’ll move on to the bindToggle command. You can use the bindToggle command to use one button to turn on and off certain mods such as god mode and infinite ammo. So if you wanted to bindToggle with the X button it would look like:
bindToggle “X_BUTTON” “infinite_ammo”
That should be it for modding Left 4 Dead 2, just remember to replace “x” with your command, e.g bind “BACK” “x”. You can change all the button commands with the ones shown. Once you have finished modding your UserSettings file press the save button and your file will be rehashed, resigned and saved back onto your USB for use.
There, see the link i posted before for the commands.
