Title: Bot Questions
Post by: papercut on October 21, 2006, 12:18:56 pm
1. Is it possible for bots to call names? Like i know there's already a "Die <name>!" bot chat by default. Can I place that in my bot's other chats? like "<name> is hacking!", "I hate you <name>!!", or "stfu <name>"

2. Multiple phrases. I read in a older post that when editing bots you can write Chat_Kill= multiple times and the game will pick one of the phrases at random. I was unable to perform this as soldat won't read my bot file. Even while using the /addbot command. Has this ever been clarified? Can it work?

3. Any way to get the bots chat to be listed at the top of the screen? I am able to see it when i join a server with bots. How can I list the bots chat myself? I also noticed that the bot chat is listed at the top if you use ^ (caret key) in front of their chat to resemble team chat. Of course its yellow like normal team chat, but I want the normal 'everyone' chat to show up.

4. Any way to Change the bots default chat? I know they say things like "Flag!" when they see the flag, or "Die <name>!" when they spot someone. I want to change it to "^Return the flag!" or "omg <name> is gay!"

1 eludes me. 2, I personally haven't tried it but Mistercharles is a solid, reliable member ;) I'm sure it works. 3, I don't think there currently is a way. 4 is probably hardcoded and unchangeable.

I use soldat bot creator/editor currently. I am aware you can make them chat for:

Low Health
See Enemy

But by default all bots are given the phrase "Die <whateveryournameis>!" when they see an enemy and "Flag!" when they see the flag. I want to be able to change these jauns

And I've tested #2 once before, and i couldnt get it to work. Anyone able to work it?

Soldat bots will automatically shout "Die <insert target's name here>!"  If you find the .txt file with that text prompt and change it, you can make your bots yell other things at you, but only that one thing.
