What is RCBOT?

RCBot is a bot for Half-Life.

What is a bot?

A bot simulates players in a multiplayer game so you can play with the bots online or offline. Half-life is a first person shooter game that has a multiplayer option and also has many MODS (Modifications) of the game out there.

Aim of RCBOT

The aim of RCBot is to support some MODs of Half-life, mainly those MODs that currently don't have other bots for the Mod (e.g. Battlegrounds and SvenCoop) or interest me in some way (e.g. The Specialists)! The bot continues to try to resemble humans in the game and tries to use the least of CPU usage possible (this can be configured and can still be optimized!).

Latest Version

The LATEST version of the bot (new version 1.3 and newer) supports the MODs

  • Natural Selection 2 & 3
  • Sven Coop 2 & 3
  • Battlegrounds
  • Bumper Cars 1.5 and older
  • Deathmatch Classic
  • Rocket Crowbar 1 & 2
  • Half-life Deathmatch

Beta Versions

To keep up with the development, check out the forums for the latest bot files. You will find more features such as more MOD support, crash fixes and bug fixes. Remember these are non-official releases!

Source Code

The source code for the latest version is available for download and is usually kept up to date with the latest BETA build.

Other Versions

Natural Selection Only Version (Natural Selection 2 and below)

There is an older version for Natural-Selection MOD only, this is version 0.3. This was scrapped but is still available to download on the downloads page.

Rocket Crowbar Version

The (very...) OLD version of the bot (old version 1.56+) mainly supported Rocket Crowbar 1.9 and supports these MODs

  • Rocket Crowbar 1.9
  • Deathmatch Classic
  • Counter-Strike 1.5
  • Half-Life Deathmatch

There is another bot out there for Natural Selection, called WhichBot. WhichBot is currently in Alpha development and can currently go Alien, if you think my bots are rubbish at going aliens, get this! There are versions for Metamod and non-Metamod so you can have both bots running easilty by using the metamod versions together.
