Hello there Markus, damn nice to see you are back in bot territory! Sorry to hear about your parents, and your problems, but I am glad you are recovering!

What I read is that:
Johannes (still rowing along in Finland?)
Pierre (creating his own company with his bros?)
Stefan (being a software engineer ?)
William (still being Consultant?)
And I'm still living in Delsbo, Sweden, drinking MUCH coffee, and many beers of course, but not at the same time! And listening to good old bluesmusic! Have studied to be a "optical fiber technician" (damn, haven't a good english translation, and I guess you haven't learn swedish yet? ) and I just quit a job at Ericsson Network Technologies where I worked with optical fiber (or fibre) for fast broadband, so I'm now looking for a new job.

Same here, I will dedicate my next cup of coffee to all great people I've met a Nuclearbox! I really miss those days, so it's time for Bots United to change name to Nuclearbox 2 or something Nice to see that some of us getting together here!

Here are also some people they got banned by Auxois because of different political opinions, so they probably will not approve changing the name of bots-united into nuclearbox 2 (it's not about me).


Let us know , Markus, what are Your plans - are You going to code some new bot (and You need some sub-forum here for it) or You are not thinking You will have time to develop anything? Another thing - because some stupid guy has reserved Your nick already at this forum, but he seems to be inactive since some time, we can ask BU admin to delete his account and thus You will be able to use Your normal nick without (4real) sufix if You wish so.

BTW - don't You think guys this topic should be moved (with a redirect) to Offtopic forum?

Yes, agree to that, not much RealBot talk in this thread

Lol, I still remember in CS1.3 how PodBot v2.0 had the proper view panning, not instant-godlike-turns to ya, and PodBot v2.5 had an error in the skill.cfg which was supposed to have a different name but the game didn't treat it that way, so they did the instant-turn to you, and there was a custom skill.cfg that fixed it.

Good old memories, the problem was that PB 2.0 wasn't able to save hostages and 2.5 wasn't able to plant the bomb correct from time to time.

2.5 was crashing when someone killed a hostage.
Hey guys - don't You really remember it was the most popular bot anyway (even of all these bugs)?
Beacuse Markus released his sources, we still could get excited by new features of the bot - about 4 clones of podbot were started their lifes.

True, then PMB released his kickass plugins for PODbot 2.5 which helped it out quite a bit, and there was the other one.. can't remember the name.. but it was pretty darn good too, made the bots much more efficient snipers.

Yeah, true, but like I said, those plugins made it pretty leet.

CF, if you ever make a CSS bot that could destroy the turtle rock studios bot I'd be laughing ti'll the next millenia..

speaking of bots for source, they updated the sdk, did they make third party bot support better too?
