I was just wondering, is there ANY way to pause a bot but have you freely moving? I ask because I plan on taking a few screenshots and I would like a bot standing still. I have searched through both these forums and JK2. Any help? "Bot_pause" wasn't as helpful as I hoped (Unless I was using it the wrong way. So yeah, anyway to have a bot stand still?

Activate God mode, then deactivate your saber, stand still and keep watching and following the bot with your mouse. Eventually it'll stop, deactivate its lightsaber and just stand there and stare at you. I'm yet to figure out why this happens (I think it's either a bug or a line of code that prevents bots from attacking unarmed opponents) but it should give you a few seconds.

I'm pretty sure it's so you can initiate a duel with them.

It's a start, thanks. So there's no console command that anyone knows? Could I use a bot editor of sorts?

What exactly do you want to take screenshots of?

Well I was hoping I could align several bots together and screenshot them.

It might be easier to just make some Neutral NPCs.

Ah ha, I'll look into that if I don't see anything else soon. Thanks.

Might be. Haven't tried that one yet. It seems to happen randomly - duels, FFA, anything. I've had 15 bots just standing around, staring at each other.

They do that so as not to be "lamers", you could say. They freeze when their target deactivates their lightsaber, and then respond to a duel challenge by accepting, provided you both have sabers deactivated.

It's a command in JA+, and I believe some other mods may have similar commands.

As for making Neutral NPCs, you can just set them to the player team and they'll stand still in multiplayer.

Neutral NPCs often mess around somewhat, and I don't know why, so that might be an easier method.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
