Are there plans to release multiplayer bot support for the current Battlefield 2 game? Im not talking about other mods..

I think its rather stupid to release a multiplayer designed game and not include AI so small groups of friends can fight larger battles..

Hmm, interesting question.

The original release spec of BF2 didn't inlcude COOP mode, only SP practice, so officially probably not. However it doesn't seem like it would be a big job since a half working form of COOP is already available, so maybe a mod maker will release a properly featured COOP mod for it.

I know your saying BF2 EA make it possible for bot multiplayer imgame, But there is a mod out called Mercenaries, I play there all the time. they have a great mod with really excellent maps, Specially the Air training 101 map Try it , This friday night there having Fight against Bots.. 11/11/05 check the forum and see if there anymore wars happening. I do agree with you though, They should have Online Bot matches with choice of map size and number of bots. AND !!! I Was hoping that EA would put in CTF. ALSO !!!!! They Need to make Stamina Meter Go a little Slower when your running. It Runs out to fast and take it's sweet time to load again. Mercenaries raised there Stamina Meter a little and it seems about right what it should be... Here's a link to the Mod 5.0 and the maps, Great maps too. http://www.dies-world.com/

And the server page http://www.mercenaries.dies-world.com/modules.php?name=MercsModServers

Like Apocalypse_Kid said, there's a "half-working" coop mode already in the game. Check out this thread: http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=223153

Dunno if that helps or not, but it works great for just tiny handful of guys to tool around with (like you and two buddies at most).

The game was based as a multiplayer game. It is geared to be played by humans. They didn't add bot support cause they didn't feel it necessary .... It was no secret it was to be played ONLINE and with MANY PLAYERS. What can you do? Wait. Write. And Hope.

Lt.vendetta They should have Online Bot matches with choice of map size and number of bots.[/quote] You can chose the size of the maps. It is up to the Owner of the servers to decide. Even if you have a 24 man server you can run 64 man maps. It is done in the server files. :D
Lt.vendetta AND !!! I Was hoping that EA would put in CTF. ALSO !!!!![/quote] umm well lets see. You leave your spawn and go out to certain points and Capture flags. I would say that is implemented already. It isn't "classic CTF" like other games. But then this isn't the other games. Othe game types would be cool. Hold the bunker perhaps, or VIP where your commander shows up on the screen and the object is to kill the other commander, blah blah blah and so on so forth. [quote=Lt.vendetta] They Need to make Stamina Meter Go a little Slower when your running. It Runs out to fast and take it's sweet time to load again.
Why do they need to do this? Do you think it is soo easy carring a 15 pound weapon and a 45 pound pack, and with your average weight being 215- 260, you should be able to sprint 4 city blocks ? Give me a break .. You may as well ask for an unlimited sprint meter. I think the standard one is fine. [quote=Lt.vendetta] Mercenaries raised there Stamina Meter a little and it seems about right what it should be...

same as above. Because you think they raised it to appropriate levels? So you have more srpint time. more jump time. come on... Lets start making Expldoing rounds for the sniper rifles and for the pistols , we can all go back to playing Rogue Spear: urban operations. That is what you really want to play it seems.

Got to agree with MerrickDS about the sprint meter. The sprint feature is meant for short dashes to safety. Dash across a street into the alley way the other side, see a tank, run for cover, not, "I need to get to the other end of the island quick, I think I'll sprint all the way", hint, get a jeep.

Sprinting is good as is. Its really only for getting out of a tight situation.

Thanks for all the replies guys, I kinda forgot about this thread awhile :p

I'll most definitely check out that coop mod, maybe set it up on my server.

Also, its a very effective way to controll piracy.
