I only have 2 people here to play on the LAN now, so it's not really much fun; we need to be able to enable some bots to keep it interesting. Is this possible? Paul

Hi j3pflynn,

Yes it certainly is, when you start a game make a co-op game instead of conquest. You can set the number of bots and the ratio (axis versus allied - if it's set up 2 for axis and 1 for allies the axis will have twice as many players as the allies - more fun that way, you can have a game on Omaha Beach with 50 bots charging up the beach against 10 defenders - a good challenge, as well as amazing seeing all those attackers coming up at you.)

Keep in mind that if you are playing the game on a machine as well as serving the game it will get jerky cause of the bots using the CPU for their AI - you may have to reduce the number of bots to get a playable game. Best to have a third machine for running a dedicated server.

Have fun
