An audio replacer for Left 4 Dead 2 that replaces Jockey audio with the words of famous loony Francis Dec, as read by "Doc on the Roq at Milwaukee in the '80s. VERY ADULT CONTENT! For entertainment purposes only. Mr. Dec's insane rants do not reflect my views, those of the original reader, or I hope, of any sane person.
One of the crying shames of Left 4 Dead 2 is that the zombies don't talk. This sound replacer aims to fix that, providing the Jockey with the words of Francis Dec, a paranoid schizophrenic pamphleteer who lived in Long Island in the 50s-90s. The audio comes from readings of Dec's insane pamphlets by Boyd Britton, a newscaster more commonly known as Doc on the ROQ.
To install the mod, simply unpack the .vpk file into the Left4Dead2/Addons directory of your KLeft4Dead2 install folder. On my computer it looks like this:
This is only audio and does not include a asddoninfo.txt, as such it will not show up as togglable in-game. Stick the mod in the right folder to activate it, remove it to disable.
Q. Do you own this audio?
A. As these recordings were made for the Church of the Subgenius without Mr. Dec's explicit consent I assume that they likewise are in the public domain. I claim no rights to them and no license is applied. The audio is based on documents released into the public domain; in fact most of Dec's pamphlets encourage the reader to make copies for their own use. So AFAIK, it's all good.
Q. Is this addon offensive?
A. Mr. Dec was not a well man, and his writing is highly prejudiced against pretty much everyone. Racism, triggers, and rampant, confusing technophobia are all prevalent. This addon is intended for humorous use and does not constitute an endorsement of Mr. Dec's views, or of any prejudices of any kind. This addon contains language far more adult than anything present by default in Left 4 Dead 2, so use caution accordingly.
Q. What tools did you use for this?
A. Audacity and the native Valve modding tools.
Q. Do you want/need help with this?
A. Mods and addons can always get better, hit me up!
Q. Do you have any plans for further addons of this kind?
A. I'd love to turn more crazy street literature into zombie dialog, but audio of same is in short supply. If I have the time I may perform my own someday!
Q. What does this addon replace?
A. All Jockey voices, the music that plays when the Jockey attacks, and the Bacteria themes for the Jockey that play when the Director is placing the Jockey in Campaign.
