View Full Version : Am I the only person to customize my bots?

There's got to be somebody else out there who does. I named mine after people I knew, friends, family, I made up a few names, and yet every screenshot I see has the original bots' names on it. Did anybody else out there do what I did?

Sure as hell I customize my bots, I wouldn't think that nobody does; when I'm able to change my appearance, I also want to change the appearance of my enemies/allies.
Just left a few original names I liked.

Does anybody too have a Bill-Gates-Bot?(enemy of course), or am I the only madman around here?

Named all my bots and customised them after my lan-buddies. Much more fun ths way & way more personal then the original botnames and settings.

dangit, I posted something similar to this and nobody responded!
http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~unreal/modcentral/html/Forum22/HTML/000048.html

anyway, mine are all named dumb stuff. I have a skaarj hybrid called cartman who I gave the cartman voice pack (the funniest thing I have ever heard), a Nali called Goro and a Nali called Spunky, a bunch of other Skaarj's called Brittany, Spanky, Precious, and Bo Bo. I had a bunch of cows called burger king and pissy cow also until I realized I felt kinda bad killing them.

as far as customizing, I'm trying to find a happy medium. Experienced is the setting I want, but I get killed instantly by groups of bots in CTF. Getting a bot to follow you and cover you in groups is impossible, so it's me vs. 3 bots usually. However on the average setting I can stand in front of a bot for like a minute and not get killed. Theyre too dumb to get other weapons before attacking, and the M9 isnt too strong. The run out of bullets and then pull the pin on the grenade but forget to throw it. Brilliant. http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~unreal/modcentral/html/rolleyes.gif


oh well

I have edited this message twice and still the stupid smilies won't work right. I give up.

I named some of mine after friends and family, others i just made up names or used the name that corresponded to the face. Don't get me wrong, i'm not some sicko, but it's fun to frag friends and family. If it wasn't, FPS games wouldn't sell. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Anyways, the one bot who has become my arch-nemesis is The Count, who is using one of the necro skins, i forget what they're called, but he prefers the minigun and has incredible accuracy. I also gave each bot an assigned team and i never choose to balance the teams when i play. I love doing team last man standing in DM-city. You guys should try it.

Bots dont use the grenades ?

Andirez

No, I've never seen a bot using a grenade. Maybe when they've run out on any other ammo. Anyway, bots are probably not smart enough to use the grenades in the right way.

bots use grenades! They are stupid stupid too. They pull the pins and forget to throw, or else they throw and don't move.

PLEASE ANSWER THIS ONE!!!!!

how do I get a bot to use a grenade??????
just post the settings you use for the bot who uses them - or whatever might be doing him do it.
I really played a lot, but never found a bot using grenades, even if I give them some as standard. Acually I'm the only one who uses grenades(and not too often, because I prefer the M9 over the grenades - can be a jolly deadly weapon, also in the hands of a bot)

By the way; I play Experienced or Skilled(depends on how often I want to respawn) usually in CTF-Lavagiant with at least 16-30 bots(some more with the enemy team of course). Wouldn't say I get killed too often - but I don't try to get the flag, I just want to kill someone, preferably by sniping him/her with the psg or robar.

Which maps do you play??????(if they aren't included perhaps tell me where you got them from..)

I modified all 32 bots - including names, skins, and preferred weapons - by the way: all preferred weapons are INF-weapons.

Here's a good one: I can't get bots to show up past bot number 21. This is really weird, because bot 21 barely ever shows up even in 16-17 player games. If you customized all 32 bots, do they all show up? if so, I need to send another e-mail to the utbugs place.

Snakeye
29th Feb 2000, 05:48 PM
Well, all my 32 bots show up in the bot config menu in UT - but only since I edited them by hand in the user.ini file; before I did this, I only was able to configure the first 16 - hell knows why.
The only real advantage of the user.ini file is the possibility to use INF weapons for your bots as favourite weapons(just important to get the right name - found it in some other .ini file, I think)
I really was sick of every bot using the M16 as soon as he got it - now they still like the M16(especially the ones with Psg1/Robar as favourites), but they also like to use the Benelli and the MP5 and the HK69 - adds more fun to the game.

BTW:
The lines above are in no way an insult to the M16. It is(up to date) my fav botsmasher - especially because of the great sound, THANKS NEO(INF_NEO?)!!

Another thing:
If you need more bots, type 'addbots No'(No is the number of bots you want to add) in the console during the game.
Try this not on slow machines with explosive ammo on and ammo drop on - I actually have a PII-450/128MB RAM, and turned off the ammo drop and explosive ammo(although I really liked it..)because more bots are more fun - especially on CTF-Lavagiant I can't get enough of that wonderful duff, ahh bots..

Ha ha... you have a really fast computer.
I'm running UT on a P 200 with NO 3D CARD.
I can get 4 or 5 bots at good speed at 800*600, but i usually play at 400*300 with low texture graphics(except for the skins) and it runs great. 'bout the same speed as a p2 333 with a v32k(voodoo 3 2000 pci). pretty funny, actually, although in order to play online, even with my cable modem i have to make a few sacrifices detail-wise.

Snakeye
1st Mar 2000, 04:29 AM
ouch; UT really works on a P200?
please say no, please say no.
I have one where I study, but I thought it wasn't capable of UT - the reason why I have it there, keeps me from playing INF all the time.
Still I wouldn't consider my system that fast; it runs quite good - my Voodoo3 2000 AGP makes it run smoothly with up to 28 or 30 bots on CTF-Lavagiant - it only slown down when mass of ammo exploses(the reason I turned that off - although I really liked to see the bots flying around when an M9 bullet lit all the ammo below them - hehe

I wish I hadn't tried to run it on this computer - I can't get any studying done. Still, it's a blast. with the lower graphics, it feels like a classic game

Whatever;
What's the name of your favourite bot?
Especially when you play team games.
Which skin did you give him?
Which voice?

What skin do you choose for yourself??
questions, questions and questions.

please answer, all you infiltrators out there

Sure I'll messed with my bots. I've got all charactors from movies, actors, and other famous people like Tony Montana, T1000, Mr T, Ash, George Clooney, Big Gay Al, etc.

Kingrames

My favorite bot... that's a tough one.

But there is a bot that looks and sounds exactly like a friend of mine. her name is zara. And the female commando with the face nikita looks just like my sister. I don't really have a favorite though, unless you count the first 16 bots /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Did you want to know what I named them all? I think I have a list around somewhere

Well boys and girls,
my fav bot is a sweet little female commando with the name Charlie - who kicks ass in deathmatch; usually defends the base while I go out sniping in CTF games.
The rest I called after some actors/actresses, Bill Gates, PC/PSX game boys/girls, Bill Gates, some other people I don't like and, if I didn't mention it until now, BILL GATES.
Do you prefer male or female bots;(IN THE GAME, NOT FOR A DINNER..)
How about Soldiers/Commandos?
I prefer Commandos - that soldiers rather look like Mr. Universum-bodybuilder-steroid-junkies..even the female soldiers..
And female of course; they're harder to hit than the male bots..

mad as usual

I have one bot named psycho - she's a mercenary, and she's got her accuracy and reaction all the way up, and her overall skill is increased. she is one tough bitch to beat in deathmatch, but i usually play team games. my team's always the same bots, so I've gotten to know their strengths and weaknesses as well as the others. I constantly tweak my bots for perfection. Not that anyone cares. Here's a question for you guys - what's the best name you made up for a bot? I like Be-otch personally /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Kingrames
2nd Mar 2000, 06:56 PM
What exactly is it that makes people happy when they hit the 'adept' skill level? I kick ass on masterful and still have bots with skills increased on that level. Something to notice - You can always outrun any bot. keep that in mind when someone turns around and runs for the flag /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Just a tip for you guys.

Snakeye
2nd Mar 2000, 07:08 PM
That with the outrunning I already know. Saved some armour vests for me..
But: How often do you get killed when playing on masterful?

Was that the Cathy-Lee Gifford episode of South Park that had Cartman doing the German Dance? Or was it the chicken pox episode? Or was it the one where Cartman hit his head after riding the mechanical bull and thought he was a Vietnamese prostitute? Hmmm...

I am laughing my ass off right now.........

& i'm listening to the specials, life is good

anyway, to end the cofusion, in the Chef Aid episode of South Park (dirty britches, you got dirty britches!) cartman performs the german dance inbetween acts like ween & primus. The german dance was just cartman in lienderhosen trotting around singing 'i will do the german dance for you'. I'm trying to find a freaking link to the sound on the net, but so far no luck. So this will have to tide you over.

It's not suprising it's confusing.

My roomate, who went to boarding school in Munich, says bavarians are like the texans of the US. They see themselves differently.

I will do the german dance for you............

Neo, Neo..
You seem to be a little upset; just there's no reasom to be - those guys are just kidding, and even if not they've got an opinion they are allowed to post - has something to do with human rights..
(can't believe I just said that..)
If I were you I'd be happy that people only mistake Bavaria for Germany - I live in a country that is commonly mistaken for Australia..

One more:
You shouldn't abuse your power to convince others of your opinion by force - that's not the good gentleman way..
You are moderator and therefore have to delete only really extreme stuff posted here; something like Nazi/Commie-ideology and any form of unsuitable pictures..

If someone wants a 'German' dance let hom want it and tell him he doesn't get it.

How often do I get killed in Masterful...?
Let's see... In team games, I either play TeamLMS in DM-city and kill every enemy or the game goes on forever... /infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif but in deathmatch I don't last that long (who does?) Course, I don't play deathmatch that often at all, so I guess my record is pretty good. In ngstats, the total frags logged is over 30,000 so I DO play a LOT. hope that answers your question...
