Hi all, I figure this is the best place to test two three items I fooled around with recently.

An installer. (UPDATED 30 June 2019 84 map support and a better readme.)
This one is for the persons who struggle with manually installing RCBot2 for Day of Defeat: Source.
I got some feedback and looked in the Steam Forums, it seems a lot of people have problems even with the 2019 installer.

So I made a version that...

a. Only works for DoDs
b. Has a steam folder finder (most times it works)
c. Will make a desktop shortcut (based on the users steam directory address on install) and has "-insecure -novid" so no editing... just click it.
Target - "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 300 -novid -insecure
d. Will make a second desktop shortcut to RCBotProfiles.exe so the user can alter the 16 bot server file I set.

Test it for me?

1. This is a NSIS installer so if you get a warning in windows 10 due to your settings, select “More info” link then the “Run anyway” button.

The open source NSIS installers I use don't install anything else but RCBot2 files and a desktop shortcut, they don't phone home, VAC ban you or anything nasty.
Some antivirus programs and windows settings will complain and that's quite normal, see here on that "False positive" issue... https://nsis.sourceforge.io/NSIS_False_Positives


2. See if it does find the steam folder...
64 Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\
32 Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam\
...it needs that address not the "dod" folder like you see on other installers. So long as it finds the steam folder off your registry settings (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam) it will place all the files correctly.

3. Then the installer should continue on to make a desktop icon (with a dods icon graphic named "Day of Defeat Source RCBot2"), click it and have dods open and enable the bots on a complaint map that has waypoints supported.

Download here.

The second content item is a guide on the steam forums for Manually installing RCBot2 (for dods only).

Its quite long at 24 steps and again target was a "nothing left out" step by step for those that struggle.

The guide is here.

Update 30 June 2019: A third item now released.
A support download for the custom maps supported by RCBot2.

1.45GB download of 75 custom maps

download that here (Mediafire download)

Man am I enjoying the bots Cheeseh biggrin.gif

They seem very stable and lots of waypoints.

Changes to the download.

14th June 2019 change -
Installer package - altered the installer script to include a dod icon on the desktop after first download installer made a blank icon.

16th June 2019 change
Installer package - 1. Altered the installer script to also include a desktop shortcut to the RCBotProfiles.exe
Main files - 2. Corrected the rcbot2.VDF file in the download it had errors in the RCBot2 folder address

30th June 2019 change:
Installer rework now has 85 map support, cleaned some useless files and supplied a better readme in pdf.

Coming changes in progress:

No date yet: A in game waypoint panel and keybind guide. I already have one made ages ago but it needs updates. Image of the older panel.

No date yet: Like the download support for the RCBot2 maps for players I will also place the same set for server admins, they need a different approach and other support files. I have that set on windows LAN server already and testing it still.

No date yet: Docker game server: Find out why RCBot2 works on a windows dedicated server fine, but not Docker package (Linux for UNraid servers). Metamod and scourcemod work in a docker but not RCBot2.

As posted in the other forum for the RCBot2 installer I have another item for Day of Defeat:Source players.

Thanks to the RCBot2 team (you know who you are) Day of Defeat:Source now has support for 84 maps in total. blink.gif
75 custom maps and 9 VALVe maps that come with the game.
The size is 3.09 GB for all those ohmy.gif

How about a download for the 75 custom maps?

Uploaded on Mediafire, a 1.45GB download of the 75 custom maps to match the waypoints in your installer.

Link to the zip...
https://www.mediafire.com/file/5qg2g2ji1d2g...m_dods_maps.zip

Please read the readme, its in text and PDF. The download has 75 folders that go into your 'custom" folder. That way if there is a small update for the map all the files are individually separated to update.

They will also go in a Linux and MacOS install as that uses the standard folder to place in modifications...
64Bit C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Day of Defeat Source\dod\custom
32Bit C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Day of Defeat Source\dod\custom

Other OS like linux should have the same structure past... "Drive and file system"... /Steam/steamapps/common/Day of Defeat Source/dod/custom

Full list of the 75 maps...

Note the ones with "Valve" beside them are the 9 standard Day of Defeat: Source maps.
