I am just wondering how many people would like to see a bot add on or patch for RTCW

maybe if you could set them to different levels of difficulty, it would be a challage and good practice for all those clans out there. Plus, if you got bored, just make your own server and play some bots. But on the other hand bones has a point, i think a real person is a much better challenge than a bot and is more fun.

on the other hand a Bot can be nice to have when the ISP is down or it's a LAN party of humans vs Bots! I'd like to see them show up..and besides if they Frag you..you can't scream at them and call them cheaters! Well I guess maybe you could? but they won't care :rolleyes:

I don't think anyone can recreate actual human interface--- playing against real people who all have their own style of fighting. Seems like bots would be pretty predictable. I couldn't imagine a bot tossing a cooked-off nade around a corner at a group of oncoming enemies.

But, yeah, it would be neat to have that option when your ISP is down.. I seem to experience that a lot with comcast!! what a lousy cable service it is!

Hi,

I think that it is possible to program a medic to follow you wherever you go AND tk-revive you when ur hp is below 50/55. Even program engineers to arm a dynamite together. Tell your botmates to "defend the objectives!"and they will go camp in tha warroom :D

But maybe the guys at ID Software left out bots on purpose, so we can go explore on ourselves ;)

Anyway, sometimes me and a friend really wish there are bots, coz it's no fun 1on1.

Lata

Ps. My 1st post! :D

i just want bots for when friends and i get together there is only about 8 of us and we would like bots to fill the surver so the game is more chaotic. Also when i can''t get online, i would some bots just to learn new levels with and stuff.

most people probably want the bot option, just not gonna happen. Its far too complex for a simple patch to fix.

Maybe we'll see something in the next RTCW game...

Yeah the scripting would be almost impossible to program the bot to act like a human. I'd imagine it could be done but it would take a huge project team of like 10-20 guys, and extensive trial and error. I just dont see it happening in this version of the game. One problem that would be immediately present is the bots wouldnt know where any of the objectives are. If they were programmed as support it would be possible. (Program them to give out ammo, and for medic to give health and revive etc,.) But I dont see it possible to program a bot how to throw an airstrike or fire artillery. Sniper would kind of be cheating since its the computer aiming. a soldier with a flamer or panzer would not be good since the computer doesnt know how not to damage his own team. (Would be kind of funny to see a computer bot take out his entire team with a panzerfaust!) Engineer wouldnt be possible because it doesnt know where the dynamite is. (Also a bot engineer wouldnt be as effective as a human one.) Since you cant really script in aggresiveness. (Very heard to program in multiple tasks.) Diffusing dynamite while first killing the defenders etc,.

its possible it would just take a lot of talented scripters to do it.
