hi noxin,

what language do you speak? there might be someone on the forum who also speaks it.

i will use simple english.   :-)

what is a ki-language?

you will write a bot which will "connect to a game server and play". i understand.

you said "only stupid thinks like create a map". i do not understand.

does the bot move around the game server and make a map of where it has been?

I'm pretty sure he means something like an IRC Bot, where they use the protocol to communicate/interact. Noxin, I'm not really sure myself, but you can probably take a look at the engine code. Or do you mean a bot bot, like one you fight? If that's the case then I'm pretty sure you can look at the botfiles/ directory in the media assets.

thank you for your answer ...

i speak german :-)

KI is german sorry i mean AI (artificial intelligence) .
No the bot connect to an game and than explore the map and create his own to act faster.
I take a look in the source and i think everythink is there to write such a bot ... but if anybody has always done it i hope i could use it ;-) and a network-protokoll make it easier to know what the code does ...
no i don't mean a irc-bot ... a normal bot but he has to connect as a client and get only this informations and than he do something ...
i hope you understand me *s*

thanks noxin

interesting. i don't really know anything about how this stuff works, but i imagine it must be possible to connect a bot to someone else's server and let it go off exploring. sorry i can't help, but i hope it works out for you.   :-)

Basically you want to have your AI scan the map, and then create its own aas in a more optimized fashion so the bots are tougher opponents, am I correct in that?

It is possible, but that would place a lot more CPU overhead onto the game and make the game sluggish for those on a low end system.  You could probably just re-code the bspc tool and achieve the same results.

mh to create a map is only one feature of that bot if it works i think to let he shoot and fight again real player ... i want at the end a bot like the game-bots in single-mod ... but at the begin i want that he connect to a server ...
