Warning Make bots look more human - 09-01-2007


I've been tring for some time now to get the bots to look more human - time in game and latecy

I've been going through the source code and i haven't been able to see were can i modify this. I mannaged to add bots with a random delay between one and 1 and 5 mins (wich is part of what i wanted), but, no mather when i add them, querying the server always shows the same thing - the same time (minute and second for all bots).
Another thing i want to modify is the latecy displayed in game to a random latecy (default for bots is 0 and it's not displayed), or, at least a random latecy set at map start, but constant in game.

Also, i've been tring some 1mb botnames.txt files and that seemd to be the higher limit, wich, is... ok... 100.000 names ought a do Bot botchat.txt seems to have the same thing. I'm going to look into it to see if i can extend that limit somehow, without aculaty parsing the file each time

If someone could help with time / latency I would be greatly apreciate it.

KWo said that you would have to hack into steam or the game or something and he doesn't want to do that. I agree with you that it should have a random latency.

Expanding on your topic of random bot adding, I think there should be a system of random bot adding and bot leaving. The number of bots can go below the maxbots, but not above it.

Also, you might want to read my post about custom map configs for bots to make them act accordingly on each map, just like a human would. the post is here:

Well you would think if you were able to make an artifical in-game human there should be times and latency. But if it might be illegal the developers should stay away from it.
I'm not sure if the time and latency are actually from the steam-registered accounts only.
