Radial Menu Changer (Left 4 Dead 1)
Hello all!I have noticed that a lot of people on L4D have been creating their own custom radial menus to use in-game. I decided to help the ones who have a hard time editing the RadialMenu.txt by designing a program to generate your own custom menu code.
To those who are not sure what a radial menu is: it's the circular menu in-game which you can open by pressing a corresponding key such as X or Z.
Anyway, this program will generate the code for your own menu and give you the command to bind that menu to a key.
TEXT TAB - this tab is where you assign a name to your menu command you wish to use.
COMMAND TAB - this is where you insert the console command for that specific option (e.g. vocalize PlayerWarnTank).
MENU NAME TAB - assign a name to your custom menu to generate a bind command.
Once you have generated your own custom menu, copy the code to your clipboard (CTRL & C) and open up your RadialMenu.txt file which is commonly located here:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\scripts Scroll down to the very bottom of the file where the last line should be a "}" (without the quotes).
Paste (CTRL & V) the code from your clipboard one line ABOVE that last curly bracket (it is recommended that you back up the file before you save your edited one).
Now you have saved your new menu file, copy the bind command to your clipboard (remembering to replace KEY_HERE with a preferred key on your keyboard or mouse) to insert into the console. This will assign your custom menu to that specific key you have chosen.
