Default Opposing Force Bots - 30-11-2005

I noticed that bots in Opposing Force tend to be rather... Eh, mindless. When fighting, the bots would run straight at their target, firing their weapon repeatedly. I have no idea where to put waypoints. I put some waypoints I found next to another waypoint that came with HPB Bot, but the waypoints seemed to do little for bot navigation. Luckily, they have pretty good coordination, it's just that fighting them is so weird. The Half-Life 1 deathmatch bots that come with RCBot honestly seemed a little more intelligent because they'd look at an enemy and fire their gun instead of running at the enemy. However, the bots in RCBot would also shoot at teammates so I'm not sure what to think about that.
Is there a way to improve the behavior of bots in Opposing Force or is there (regretably) a better alternative Opposing Force bot?

Unfortunately, there's no way the end user can improve the bots behaviour but to improve the source code and recompile it himself... if you aren't a programmer, don't even try unless you're ready to spend weeks on it

I had no intention of modifying the bot. I was wandering if they could be made more challenging (besides setting the skill to 1, thus making them the hardest difficulty) or if there was simply other bots for Opposing Force out there.
