Default The Jumbot - 30-08-2005

Hello,
I am a hardcore Half-Life Deathmatch player. I was a little late getting into the game (started 2001), but I've been hooked ever since. I started running a dedicated server about 1 1/2 years ago. I love bots and have added botman's HBP_bots. But I've been a bit dissapointed by how the bots play. I started looking around for bots that can longjump, use the gauss jump, and do other things that real HLDM players typically do. I thought I found one It was called The Jumbot and every discription about this mech was what I needed. Problem is...I can't get it to work and it seems no one is working on it any longer . I am questioning if this bot even made the switch to STEAM before The Fatal (creator) stopped working on it. Is there anyone here who will be willing to look at it and get it to work for STEAM? I realize most of you are probably busy with your own projects, so currently I am trying to learn how to create bots. It's gonna be a loooong road for me since I am starting from scratch. So if anyone with bot creating experience is willing to get this awesome bot to working, that would save me months and posssibly years of work and I would so very much apprecitate it.

Thanks,
Tum

The Jumbot was more than a bot, it was a complete mod by itself. Unfortunately we don't have the source code for it, and TheFatal sort of disappeared, so I don't know if it's possible to do anything for it.

Have you tried Parabot ? I urge you to, this is one hell of a bot for deathmatch too.

Where can I get the parabot? Google searches seem to show that the latest is version 0.9, but every link I go to doesn't work (including http://parabot.nuclearbox.com/download.html).

Parabot is one of the most cool bots ever! I have had quite a lot of fun with it in HLDM and DMC.

Any chance there is a metamod version?

Does anyone know why I would be getting these error boxes?

#1. "Error determining MOD directory name!"

#2. "MOD Dll not found (or unsupported MOD)!"

#3. "Can't get MOD's GetEntityAPI!"

#4. "Can't get MOD's GiveFnptrsToDll!"

I extracted the Parabot folder to "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\username\dedicated server"
I then went into "Parabot/valve" and ran the install.exe.
I also tried doing the same to this director, ""C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\username\Half-Life" and then tried running a listen server.

My server specs :
AMD Athlon Xp 2200+
512 DDR RAM
Windows XP Pro
I run a dedicated Half-Life Deathmatch server and the parabot version I'm trying to use is 0.91
