I want to play Xan in DM-Deck16. Is there a way I can summon him on any map that I want?

"Summon botpack.tbossbot" actually does summon the bot but the skin is messed up.

Yeah I figured that out Liz, look at my post under "Crazy *** skin! and all you have to type is summon tbossbot. Thanks for helping me figure it out! /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

*BUMP!*

This is very interesting. You can actually spawn Xan in a normal match?

There was recently a thread about this. The answer was no. You can't configure other bots to behave like Xan, or just bring Xan into other maps (AFAIK). Epic wanted to do something special for the last level of the game. XAN has special botpathing and behaviors for Hyperblast. If you had other bots with Xan skins on other maps, they would be following the regular old botpaths. There is no way to get that special Xan behavior on other maps.

I asked CliffyB about this on Gameslink a few weeks ago, the answer IS no, all Xan is is a bot with all the skill settings turned onto their highest settings. If you want to put Xan in a regular match, then just type (at the bottom of your user.ini)[BotPack.Ladder]
hasbeatengame=trueThen, go to "Configure Bots" under the bots tab when you start a practice session, and change any bot's name to Xan, his skin to "Boss" and his skill settings to max. Then sit back and be 0wned :)

Yeah, we talked about this a while ago. Some1 eventually gave me the code to add in the user.ini to be able to play the 'real' Xan again in the tourney. I must say, the configured bot didn't seem to behave exactly the same like the 'real' Xan. But who am I to argue with CliffyB :D

btw... there IS of course something special in the tourney Xan match: he taunts you when you start.

I didn't know that Xan was a special bot. so is he scripted or something? Does hyperblast have special pathnodes?,

On this topic, Why has nobody created a custom ladder pack using some of the best custom maps and skins. I think this would be so cool. I loved going thru the single player ladder, but once you've done it, It's not as much fun the second time.

I was going to do that before I started working on a fix for Bonus Pack 4 instead. Nice to see there's some interest.

Warning: if I get the thing done, you'll need a couple of dozen skins and all the Epic bonus packs to play it :-)

Incidentally, here's the settings for Xan's match:

NumBots=1
ModifiedDifficulty=3.000000
...
CombatStyle(0)=0.500000
...
BotJumpy(0)=1
(this is all pasted out of the UnrealScript, btw)
The ModifiedDifficulty pushes his skill level up lots (could be 3 levels), CombatStyle is set to Aggressive, and Jumpy Behaviour is enabled.

and here's how Xan taunts you at the start of the match.
From TBossBot:

if ( bRatedGame )
{
R = Rand(7) + 6;
if ( R == 10 )
R = 8;
SendGlobalMessage(None, 'TAUNT', R, 5);
}

Basically that means "if the game is in the SP ladder, then pick a random taunt and send it".

Go into UnrealEd, hit Export All, and browse through the exported UScript if you want to know how stuff's done, assuming you can speak fluent UnrealScript of course :-)

I modified the TBossBot so that it was a skin when you summon it. Have fun.
