    About:
    • Auto-spawns jukeboxes on round_start.
    • Admin command to spawn jukeboxes aligned to the wall and floor.
    • Positions and angles based on a config (Attached below is a config with jukeboxes on every Valve map).
    • Triggers a horde when track #4 is played.
    • The jukebox plays a max of 7 tracks, the last 2 rarely play.
    • Please note: Each jukebox creates 18 entities within the game. Maximum of 10 jukeboxes allowed (recompile for more).
    • Please note: Sounds which loop will do so forever until you change track or use !jukestop.


    Thanks:
    • 8bit - for the idea.
    • Mr.RuyC and NanX - For helping test the plugin on their server.
    • Zuko & McFlurry for source code (full credits inside the source).


    Custom Tracks and Spawn Config:
    • The config is saved to l4d2_jukebox_spawns.cfg in your servers \addons\sourcemod\data\ folder.
    • The position and angles for each jukebox are saved in a key value structure.
    • Each map has it's own section (as seen below for Dead Center)
    • Simply put "track#" (where # is 1-7 for the track to change or 1-64) followed by the soundscape name in quotes.
    • Soundscape names can be found in the .snd files in your games \reslists\ folders.

    Map Specific overrides:
    When a jukebox is created, it will first check for 7 map specific tracks. In the example below "track1" is a map specific override within the "c1m1_hotel" section so that track will be loaded on that map.
    "main" keyvalue tracks:
    You can specify 7 tracks in the "main" section which force the specified track and track number on all maps. In the example "track4" will be the same on all maps while the rest could be random.
    "random" keyvalue tracks:
    Specifying "track1" to "track7" will override the relative original Valve track. This is how you would remove certain Valve default tracks from playing. Leaving 1 to 7 blank will allow them to play. To give the jukebox a wider selection of tracks, add them from "track8" onwards.


    Example:
    Code:
    "jukeboxes"
    {
    	"main"
    	{
    		"track4"		"Jukebox.re_your_brains"	
    	}
    	"random"
    	{
    		"track8"		"Vomit.Use"
    	}
    	"c1m1_hotel"
    	{
    		"num"        "2"
    		"angle1"        "-0.000000 90.000000 0.000000"
    		"origin1"       "412.860748 5683.539062 2880.000000"
    		"angle2"        "-0.000000 90.000000 0.000000"
    		"origin2"       "1854.047729 4510.630859 1216.031250"
    		"track1"        "Jukebox.still_alive"
    		"track4"        "Vomit.Use"
    	}
    }
    Valve orignial tracks

    Works nice, everybody is playing with the jukebox. Some players stay behind to play with it and even get themselves killed

    One more thing though, players are a bit surprised when the panic event starts and the saferoom door is still closed. Maybe add a message that, when the player controls the jukebox it warns them of song 4, or a message that says jukebox song 4 caused a panic event?

    I don't think theres a need for a warning (plus it would be a heap of work to detect). This is the same functionality as Valves Jukeboxes, people should know. The only difference is by default the panic event starts 1 second after (where valves is 42).

    this was what i was waiting on .

    I have all of your plug-ins installed on my server, i look forward to seeing more plug-ins from you in the future.

    As for the foot locker, yes that would be cool but that entity is like trying to create the dark carnival mini-game as a plugin, I'm sure some one would eventually do it at least, i hope. (maybe bad example but that mini-game is pretty complex)

    Thanks war450

    Thats a great idea, I'll take a look at the mini-games.

    EDIT: The Stache Whacker and the Moustachio games consist of roughly 60 entities each, too much work for my liking sorry.
