Thanks for reminding me, i was going to add support for that in the next update but i completely forgot. Technically if the mod already makes you reload on emptying your whole magazine then this isn't necessary at all.

If you can tell me what mod it is i could make a compatibility patch for it.

Updated! This update is fairly small, but probably very appreciated due to the following changes:

Added an easy mode (Bots may deviate their aim randomly from their target up to 22.5 degrees, toggled via tdbots_easymode CVAR)
Bots should no longer move in mid-air (But they retain the speed from their previous step)
FIxed crashing issues
Now runs in Zandronum again (Separate version this time, sadly)

Updated! This update adds Chex Quest and untested Strife support. Whoever has Strife, can test it and tell me about any bugs please be my guest. It also fixes Zandronum-specific bugs and makes easy mode, well, easy.

There was going to be a big update that had new AI made by Gustavo and a bunch of other things but it's going to be extremely delayed due to this issue: viewtopic.php?f=122&t=64766 if anyone with knowledge can check it out that would be fantastic.

Updated! This update mostly adds better dodging, bots now properly back out while using an explosive weapon and retain their previous speed while attacking.

By the way, anyone has any things the bots could say? As in, when they join a game or are just roaming? If so, would be cool if you posted them here! Kinda tiring to see them say the same 8 things over and over again :P

Updated! This update adds a very awesome feature that pretty much all modern-day Doom bots completely lack (except the ZetaBots), and that is Waypoints! They should be fairly simple to use, and i added an example waypoint (Doom 2 MAP01) and a sort-of waypoint guide in the first post.

Enjay, if you want to put these in your map, i suggest spawning them with ACS, so you don't get any errors if the TDBots aren't loaded with your map. Or just make a separate version, could be faster to waypoint.

Sounds interesting. I can't give it a go right now, but I certainly will when I can. :thumb:

I'm so glad people are making actual bots again.

Updated! This update has a bunch of new names to the bot config (There's 32 bots now!) so redownload that. It also adds tdbots_reactiontime, which sets the bot's reaction time in tics. And bots now have a walking animation! Yes Gustavo, didn't need a custom playerclass :D

I might add more names from the DecoBots in the next update, just so we don't see bots repeated too much.

That's neat, thanks Gustavo! These will be added for v14.
By the way, your ZetaBots have really improved since i last used them, hope they continue getting better and better.

Updated! This update is tiny but probably very good for those playing with these on Zandronum. I added a CVAR: tdbots_weaponize, while the name is pretty indicative about what it does, there's more detail on the changelog. I also added another CVAR: tdbots_follow, it's coop only and i don't think i need to explain what it does :wink:

Oh and yeah i added a QCDE compatiblity patch, yes that means you can finally enjoy better bots in QCDE, maybe not say goodbye to playing online but still way more fun when you are playing offline.

Hey everyone, what would you like to see in the next version? Tell me your feature suggestions, and i will try to implement them. Pretty excited to see what you guys can come up with!

EDIT: Oh i didn't update the bot config! Ah well, for v15 now.

Added a Complex Doom compatibility patch in the main post, check under the "Mod Compatibility Patches" spoiler. It works with any version of Complex Doom but i can only guarantee it will work perfectly in 26a2. If you use it on a newer version, the weapons will be like in version 26a2 (Let's say the damage was changed in v27, that won't happen if you load this patch, but this only applies to weapons, monsters and other things are normally updated)

Re: TDBots: The fast-performing bots v14b (24/6/2019)

Post by TDRR »

Updated! Bots perform around 4 to 16 times faster in Zandronum. Most computers should be able to handle 64 bots at more than 40fps. Now 4 bots barely affect performance (like 0-5fps loss at most)

Nothing at all changed in the ZDoom version so it's still at v14.

Also updated the Quake Champions: Doom Edition patch, bots can now use active abilities and they now recieved the same optimization as the v14b update on Zandronum. (This is the only patch that requires such an update, all other compatibility patches recieve the optimization without any change to them)

Download link in the OP, as always.

EDIT: Added a usage guide in the first post.

So, uh, i just now noticed that using bots in Zandronum after the latest patch makes it so they can't rejoin after a map change. Is anyone really annoyed by this or just typing in "removebots" in the console and readding the bots again is good enough for you? I can fix it by using Dusk's BotC compiler, but sadly it's source code only and i can't get it to compile. Anyone else with better understanding of this or a better compiler than MinGW could try to compile it?

I'm having a problem with adding a bot to the game. Not sure if I'm even doing it right. I'm just launching Doom 2 with the pk3 file loaded and typing addbot in the console.
