  • Help with rebalancing mod

    Since I suck at mapping or modelling, I was thinking about attempting to rebalance the characters' and weapons' stats more to my liking. That's something I enjoyed doing with STALKER (a game without a true SDK to being with) and I was hoping to try something similar with Alien Swarm. I already started to experiment with console commands, and now I'm willing to try more advanced stuff.

    How exactly should I proceed? What files need to be modified?

    There's a lot of asw_weapon_ files at \alien swarm\swarm\scripts

    Also marines_skills.cfg at \alien swarm\swarm\cfg

    You should probably override those files with an addon rather than modifying the originals. Not sure how the addons work, tho.
    Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

      Pretty easy to set them up - it's not unlike making a .zip file with folders, though you have to use the .vpk creation tools instead of course.

      Once the vpk is made, stick it in your /addons/ folder and load it up in-game under Options -> Addons.

      You'll probably need to restart the game after enabling the addon for the changes to take effect though.
      Previously known as Exo. Yes, that Exo.
