I just finished downloading Fallen Hope 2 this morning after 3 days. I think it's a really cool game but since my connection is so bad I'm limited to singleplayer and LAN play only. I noticed that the bots are REALLY stupid and was wondering if they could somehow be made more intelligent? It seems like their biggest issue is their waypoints

changed the skill from 0.1 to 1.0 but theyre still stupid. man im really disappointment because i downloaded this game so that i could play singleplayer (since im on 96k wireless) and now after the 3 day download i find that its not playable :( does the mod team have any plans to make the bots a lot better in the near future?

Shouldn't you post this in the "Fallen Hope 2" section? =p

Could the FH devs try striking a bargain with the Allied Intent Xtended modders? Their bots do amazing things (climb ladders, lay mines, DISARM mines).
my english sucks....

actually just downwards but you'll never get a bf2 bot to climb a ladder up, i'm almost sure. (engine limitations) :-(
but like you said: contacting the aix team definately wouldn't hurt, they gave us some great input for the pr singleplayer and those guys are the kings when it comes to bf2 a.i.
but i'd guess the fh sp dev ([fh]bizness - not sure) is already in contact with them, at least i've seen him around the bf sp forums iirc...
that said: i'm not sure what you mean by saying the bots are stupid.
there are many things you can adjust, some things have to be done in the ai files itself (e.g. engagement ranges, attack/ defence settings..), while some things are navmesh related (e.g. bots getting stuck at certain places or using the same routes again and again..)
well the huge problem that ive noticed is that bots get stuck in places or dont know where to go. they also randomly jump in and out of vehicles even if its moving. and then last but not least they sometimes just dont notice you and walk right past you (this is usually at meduim range, not close range). also ive never seen a bot use run. thats what ive noticed so far after about 3 hours of play time
Hands up. Who wants to die?

If you think the bots are dumb then you haven't spent enough days downloading other mods to play. I'm not saying these ones are Yale grads, but certainly they're not at the bottom of the barrel. Also the bots use run constantly, I don't know how you missed it so far. I've used SP mode a few times just to practice something or experiment with a new game mechanic. Several times I've found the bots doing something that I'd only expect from a human player and it's creeped me out. Oberst Zehnder Headquarters 130th Panzer Lehr Division

As far as i know bizness is already working on improving the bots, especially the navmesh ('waypoints') because the bots got problems to move around in some areas.
