Recording Helpers Plugin
« on: April 15, 2012, 05:50:50 pm »
Recording Helpers 0.6

Recording Helpers is an L4D2 client plugin that aims to help out with various tasks and functions when recording in L4D2.

Features:
- Re-enables many hidden CVars on L4D2. (full cvar list)
- Re-enables a native thirdperson(shoulder) mode in gamemodes with player-controlled zombies.

Download:
https://github.com/ProdigySim/recording_helpers/releases

Usage:
Place the files in your l4d2 addons folder and launch the game with -insecure in order to load it.

It may be useful to make a shortcut to l4d2 that launches with -insecure, so you don't have to edit your launch parameters all the time.
e.g. make a shortcut to "C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 550 -insecure


Changelog:

UPDATED

0.2:
Re-enables thirdpersonshoulder usage in versus/scavenge/etc.

This means you can use this to enable thirdpersonshoulder, instead of VPK hacks. It also means you'll be able to see infected ladders, get hitsounds, have working scoreboards, etc.

Hope you enjoy.

I fucked up on 0.2. It would crash. Try 0.3 instead.

Updated to 0.4:

- Fixes thirdpersonshoulder patches on latest updates of l4d2
- Adds an L4D1 version that just does the DEVONLY flag removal.

I believe another recent update broke thirdpersonshoulder mode, or my bind is broken.

The plugin will write to the console if the patches fail IIRC. Check for errors about it when you boot l4d2.

Downloaded this,

Doesn't work.
Is this a result of a recent update?
Did I mess with the c_thirdperson values too much?
Would like some help with this, thanks

So Valve undid one of their interface changes they made last update--breaking recording_helpers' thirdperson patches again.

Keep your interfaces stable, kids.

While I'm sure I might be stating the obvious, but this plugin is no longer working. Start up -Insecure L4D2 shortcut from desktop, and the game reaches the load screen before the game menu and just CTD without any error or dump log. Hoping this gets looked into soon!
