Here some tutorial from me to make a .avi file.
So you must start the game and load the demo(you know the command :
playdemo

After the demo is started and when you reach the moment that you want ot put in to the .avi file you must tape in the console :
startmovie <name> 30
Don't change the number 30 cuz just must be 30 .
Now the CS will start to make 30 screenshots per second. Maybe it will lag your computer. After you finish just tape
endmovie
And the CS will stop to make screenshots. Then exit the game.
Now in you czero folder you will have a lot screenshots of your movie.
Now you need by one program :
videomach.
After you install it just load one of the screenshots and the program will automatically load them all. Now you can choose the compresion method and save the .avi file. Now you have your demo in .avi file.

yes, exactly, all the "waypoints" you see are passage points between two walkfaces that have been recorded by player motion tracking ; this way their placement is optimal which makes the bot able to do that jump through the window you see (yeah OK, the last window was problematic, but it learned to make it through successfully since).

That was cool to watch. Makes me want to start working on a bot again.

I think navigation is probably the most difficult part of bot programming next to strategy and planning.

I was wondering what happened to the bot at the end of the demo where it seemed to be stuck in a loop trying to get through the window?

Hey PMB your compression choise is really bad. What compression method you choose ? I use XDIV. Maybe you can make this movie better than that.

You mean XviD... He used DivX for this one. Must have chose the low quality, high speed encoding mode, maybe to save some MB to dial-up users

Since it was the only path it knew, after three trials it deleted the navlink, and stood still because no other path was available. I would have had to get out of spectator mode, and climb this window in front of it for it to recreate the navlink by watching me. But I have stopped recording at this point, else it would have been twice as long. 5 megabytes of demo was way enough already.
