AMAZING NEWS! They are going to setup proper 3rd party bot support on Source Engine 14 (aka, orange box source engine).
------- Additional Comment #5 From Tony Sergi 2008-04-01 13:50 ------- As Jeremy is already aware, I've been working on this for the past week and he's
already got his hands on a beta to experiment with, so I can nail down whatever
else is needed for the first update to the interfaces that we're making. The
first valve game to support it should be TF2 with the others falling in-line
once they're up and running on the new engine.
------- Additional Comment #6 From Tony Sergi 2008-04-01 13:53 ------- Oh, and also; if you have any questions feel free to shoot me off an email and
I'll answer them as best as I can, ALSO, throw your requests/suggestions at me,
and If I haven't already handled them, I'll make sure I've gotten a solution for it.
GO! GO! GO! Email him EXACTLY what you guys need!
This could truly be our actual first chance to set things right! I mean, he's working on a beta so with good measure maybe in a few months we'll even see it come out.
That means.. once all Source SDK mods move over to the new Orange Box SDK we'll even be able to do support for those, and CSS and DODS and HL2DM.
Oh shit.. just noticed it was today.. hmm, hopefully it's not an april fools joke...
