FvF server bot proposal

Post by gulliver-trans » Wed Jun 13, 2007 5:24 pm

How about if FvF had one of those server admin bots, so it always looks like there's 1 player there (to the uninitiated). One advantage that would bring is moving us up in the rankings when someone sorts a server list by the number of players.

Just a thought. Ok now shoot me down :)

I have actually thought of this to. Have one bot that goes through each map killing monsters and exiting. Something like this would probably be really hard to do.

I was thinking something more like QSmack:

But yah that would be cool to have a coop bot. I know gunter already has some bot code in there for the brain slaves (is it FrikBot?). I wonder if that could be re-used and extended? I dunno.

What I would worry about is the progs.dat size. Or slowing the game down. But I probably worry out of ignorance.

A coop bot would suck, and principally, steal our frags.

It's not about the frags. It's about the teamplay.

A coop bot could be voted on or off. It would give you "someone" to play with on an otherwise empty server.

Because a bot would roam around the map collecting ammo and weapons while searching for targets. Gunter's brainslaves only move around when it has a live victim to kill. It has unlimited ammo and can't regen health when picking up medkits. It's not a bot, it's a quake monster with monster ai.

The cleric must have a secret dog power...that's why Gunter plays as him!

I forget. something about netname == Gunter and holding down jump and using scratch3 (or some scratch) and some impulses. I never really tried it and I'm sure he updated it.

There's nowhere you could have gotten a copy of my progs.dat
