Small question: What is keeping people from doing bots anyway? I don't know much about modding AvP2, but the creation of bots for it seems to be the next best way of bringing a lot of new life to the game, not that it's boring or anything!

The main problem is the way AI works in AvP2. There has to be AI volumes so the AI knows what to do, but for some odd reason only the simplest AI scripts work in MP, and even then it's buggy. They have a problem of simply not doing anything until attacked, and even then it takes quite a few hits. There's also the problem that, for some odd reason, the hit points of AI bots gets multiplied by a factor of around 5, meaning it takes a whole Pulse Rifle clip to kill one drone. The LithTech engine simply doesn't work very well with MP AI. And Pro-Filer, don't spam! You're an admin, for crying out loud. Set a good example. :p

Looks like there's plenty of demand for bots. Check out the number of views in comparison to the other threads. Whopping.

Makes me sad thinking of all those people who can't get online and play. I'd funking hate it.

i do not condone cheating in any way.... that said if you have to cheat use the cheats that are built in the game because im sure as hell not gunna give u a tool that you can use in multiplayer.

this game is filling up with enough cheating lamers already without me telling people where to get them.

point taken. i often jump at a chance to voice my opinion about cheating and this was one of those times where it was un-called for. my apologies m8's

as for making ai bots its not impossible to do i have a few maps with computer controlled bots. depending on the skill lvl of the map / mod maker the bots can either be insane or hardly worth the effort it took to make the bot. sadly i went to look for my 101st mod / map / bot, instruction site but it seams that they moved the page to members only. sorry about the jumping to conclusions and also for the lack of a link.
