Hi

About Bots..

Is it impossible to have bots (bots.cfg) with the oblacek system, or is it just left out from the system? if it is, why?

because when I try adding a bot with the Rcon, it says that it doesn't find any from the confugiration file.

Bots would be a good addition to this system, as often when you make a server with a less popular wad, about 1-2 people join the server, so to get a better match, some bots would be nice, even if only aviable with rcon.

it isn't more than a optional addition to the server...but still usefull when there's less players. :)

please think about it.. :p

Good idea! Anyway for now you can add bots via RCON. Maybe in the future we will improve oblacek engine with this function.

Hi

I just realized one bad thing in it.. :S

if you add a bot, and leave the server, the server wount shut down,
as long as there is one player there.. (a bot) :/

so I wonder can there be done anything to make the server close, even if there's a bot in there? :S

or maybe remove the bots after each map?

isn't there any other ways to add the bots, but still get the servers closed after it's abandoned? :S

Maybe I am putting a late reply to this topic but... you could set a bot timer fuction thing as well in whichh bot also have join timings for example if player is present bot could stay but if he is gone then the bot could only stay for a minute or 2 and also I think there is a zd feature in which when the player joins the server then so does the bot so we could try that out I guess :0

I dunno if I am saying the right thing but...

Can you set the bots' parameters via RCON? Because our engine not supporting bots.

Ok I will tell you how to do so:

First of all you need to set minplayers which is a cvar as u know it when starting the server.
Then for example if a player joins the server then a bot will automatically join in the server to make the player count=2.

Now suppose a new guy comes in then the bots will automatically leave.

You can also do it for more then one min player limit eg minplayers=2,3,4 etc... then 1 player joins then 3 bots join and if one more player joins then all bots may leave and so on...

And remember, you need to have a bots.cfg or else no bot will not spawn and further more you need to add teh Min player limit option to your adjustable server thing so players may use it.

This is how people could get bots playing with them when no one is in server and help them keep waiting.

Hope it comes of help to u.

By the way you "can" adjust minplayers through rcon but the only thing u really need is a bots.cfg so put it back on oblacek.

It's look fine but our engine doesn't support settings for creating bots. Maybe it will be implented in the future version of the Oblacek's engine but not at this time.

Well done... thanks to Kilgore who made a new (RC26) version that has a new features that will led to include bots into Oblacek.

So in this time the bots are allowed to add via rcon (combination of "minplayers" and "removebotswhenhumans" commands) in adjustabled server.

By the time we will include bots setings possibility into our engine and voting settings too. So you can simple adjust bots & voting system before main game...

You want a link to what? If you mean a latest RC win32 platform version of ZDaemon you can find it here.

hi!

sorry, but i did start a server and added 2 bots. Then i left and now, like 2 days later i saw that the server is still running.

It was not my intention...



BTW, to solve this, i think that kick voting could be enough...

Or a more responsible person may just type the minplayers into the console and maybe before starting the server people should be warned of folowing thos steps. A fool failing to do so should be recorded into the statistics and get banned I guess. This would at least put those people into their senses.

Not a bad idea. We will see what we will include into next version of Oblacek's engine.
