    Small thing i did because i hate editing VScripts.

    You can find the VScript KeyValues inside the decompiled VScript files.
    A full list of director options can be found here: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/...irectorOptions

    Cvars:
    PHP Code:
    "l4d2_directoroptions_overwrite""""Overwrites DirectorOptions key values. Seperate with ';' and assign with '=' (Assign to nothing will remove the key value). (e.g WitchLimit=;TankLimit=5)"

    "l4d2_directoroptions_use_check_delay"
    "1""Use delays to set or remove director option keyvalues, may not precise."

    Would you make your "L4D Beta Reloading" plugin work on L4D2 ?

    Sorry if this out off topic.
    Thank You

    Why didnt you post that the in plugin thread?
    L4D2 doesnt have any beta weapon reloading animations. Even if, you could just lookup some in the steam workshop.

    So what am I doing wrong?

    What's the precise usage?

    Example

    l4d2_directoroptions_overwrite smokerlimit=2
    l4d2_directoroptions_overwrite chargerlimit=0

    Chargers still spawn and I don't see more than 1 smoker.

    And does the l4d2_directoroptions_use_check_delay lock these values or not? If not, it would suck to have to re enter these values all the time.

    Code:
    l4d2_directoroptions_overwrite "SmokerLimit=2;ChargerLimit=0"
    If l4d2_directoroptions_use_check_delay is set to 0 the director keyvalues will be set on every entity post-think, but this should only be used when the director keyvalues are fequently changed by other VScripts. This is very CPU intensive. Otherwise it sets them every 0.5 seconds.

    Thank you Timocop, the latest version of ABM now uses this plugin to unlock SI. You're a genius, thanks!

    I don't know if it only happened to me, but I have been using this nice plugin for some time to disable spitters, chargers and jockeys from spawning at all. While this plugin seems to work most of the time, I've noticed if a map has a command to spawn new specials, it will do so. Is there any way to prevent it? It's not so bad though since it's only happening very rarely. Finally the L4D2 the players deserve.

    Nice plugin.

    Hi, a little help please.

    I'm using Lux's Hell Witch plugin, and basically, what that plugin does is to spawn an SI mob (mob of 4 hunters or 4 boomers or whatever) whenever you startle a witch. Thing is, the maximum SI I get is only 3, sometimes even less. I tried putting these on my sourcemod.cfg file:

    sm_cvar z_max_player_zombies 32
    sm_cvar z_minion_limit 32
    sm_cvar survivor_limit 8
    sm_cvar survival_max_specials 32
    sm_cvar z_hunter_limit 8
    sm_cvar z_boomer_limit 8
    sm_cvar z_charger_limit 8

    and nothing changed. I tried using this plugin and set l4d2_directoroptions_overwrite to "ChargerLimit=8;HunterLimit=8;BoomerLimit=8;D ominatorLimit=8;MaxSpecials:12" and while the witch spawned the right number of SI when startled, I got a new problem. Whenever Chargers, Hunters, and Boomers spawned, they would always spawn in groups of 8 making the game literally friggin impossible.

    Any help?

    have you tried only changing max specials?
    MaxSpecials=12 that should do for hellwitch spawns
