Speaking of mysterious bots...I remember a user on nukebox called T-BONE, that was gonna make "kickin' ass-extravaganza-super bot" that would rule the world...but we never saw a proof of that bot

I also remember the millions of private messages I got, when people was told on the boards that I had the PODBot WIP-version from Count Floyd:

"Please, can I have it also!!!!"
"GIVE IT TO ME OR I WILL KILL YOU SLOWLY"
"Please, send the WIP to me, Count Floyd don't need to know anything about it"
"I think the WIP-bot is a hoax, send it to me if you have it..."
"I give you free coffee for a year, if you send the WIP to me"

Haha...those where the days!

yes, WIP versions were great. but my bot's nickname was speedbot during that time for some people anyway, there werent any WIPs at first, because there was anyway an update every 2nd day

Wow, lots of stuff happened. And great to see CF is on Bots-United! Welcome (back)!

I certainly hope things are going better (and keep going better) now for ya.

Looks like you're not the only one who got himself a 'boring' software engineering job. In fact I enjoy it very much as well. It is not AI and C/C++ but simply coding my webapps in Java are fun indeed.

I did try to bring up a new release of RB a while ago, but it is majorly flawed. And i think we all know the factor "time" is not on our side. Still finding someone who is willing to pay sallery for a day so i can use that day for bot-coding ;-)

Btw, did you guys knew i had a job-offer from Crytek years ago? It was for FarCry in those days. I declined in that time. 3 years later i had another chance but did not take it as well. I don't know why, but it feels good i did that. At the same time i wonder how it would be if i did take the chance.

Anyhow, I am married now, bought a house a few months back. I am now trying to get my Informatica degree in evening school.

I also played Crysis and saw some failures, most certainly with scripting. Some time i was waiting for Prophet who would give me his gun and get cover. He did not do anything but the timer went down and he died. I had to play that part 5 to 10 times before it went right (the scripting that is) so i could go on. Frustrated me a lot.

I am wondering about these new insights you have CF regarding AI. In the past few years things did not really get more exciting, though the marketing tells us differently.

Yes, I remember the discussion with T-Bone too. Back then I remember him having some nukebox guys so much persuaded that they started to blame us for him not releasing anything.

At least 3 or 4 bot coders got this offer from them AFAIK. For example Johannes & me were mailed too, do you remember ? However they probably got a more than fitting substitute reading his articles (don't remember his name) in AI Wisdom etc. I don't regret it neither.

No new insights I'm afraid
However over the years I tried a lot and could do a list of what works and what not. It might help people just starting & it would be good to have some infos in a concentrated way. I myself also still have questiions which are unclear to me but as you wrote so much to do but so few time

Welcome to Bots-United SadBloke and Count Floyd! It's been a while indeed. Brings back some good memories about some years with lots and lots of waypointing

In case anyone cares, I am working as Level Designer for IO Interactive(www.ioi.dk) these days.

That's kickass! So when is IO going to make another hitman game, and invent some amazing multiplayer modes for it!?
Like, take the AS_ vip escort mode of CS, change it up a bit, and I think tha'd be wicked.
