basic multiplayer question -

I bought this game on Steam, so I don't have a game manual. .

This might sound obvious; but if I host an online game - and enable bots - how can I control how many there are?

e.g. - If I wanted a server with 10 player slots and kick things off with 5 bots, but kick them out as and when human player arrive?

Also - can I do things like this from console (I couldn't find any options in-game menus).

Many thanks!

Looks pretty straight forward to me. What exactly is not working?

Use the addbots command and use killbots to remove them.

I'd also recommend installing and becoming familiar with MapMixer, as it allows you to take much, much more control over bot allocation and numbers. Console commands will still work just fine, too, and it's great for saving multiple game configurations for online and/or offline games.

MapMixer won't work for a server, will it?

I'm not sure, but it works fine for me when I host Listen Servers (for one other friend who also has MapMixer installed, though I don't think the clients who join need it). I doubt it would do anything for a dedicated server, though.

What?

[Edit] Thought so, but what the hell kind of a bot makes totally useless posts like this? I mean, I can kinda understand spam bots that post malicious links, but bots that just make some totally irrelevant statement don't seem to serve any purpose to the person who controls it.

Unless it's a sentient AI...
