RCBot Forums _ Beta Version _ Temp RCBot for metamod for NS

Posted by: Cheeseh Nov 12 2005, 12:12 AM

this is an old thread
go back to !

I've made a new beta (which has all the updates in The Specialists also) but is only for Metamod and is available here:

It *SHOULD* fix the bots not changing weapons and i.e. not shooting bug in the latest NS 3.1 update. so try it out to see if it works, I only tested it for about five minutes because I don't want to lose sleep fixing all these new bugs brought on by new mod updates.

I tried it, but nothin seemed to happen different...

they seem to like.. lock onto a target and start asking for health.. the task changes to bot_task_normal_attack and bot_task_change_weapon, but they dont seem to work


they do seem to fire.. SOME of the time.. i dunno, its really damn confusing.

i've updated the dll now with a better fix

Posted by: tomes Nov 14 2005, 08:19 AM

Good, now they are shooting.
Unluckily i have found some new bugs;/
1. Bots dont listen my (commander) orders. When i'm giving them waypints they stop and do nothing.
2. NS crashed ( 3 times!) when i gave bot order to weld structures.
That's all. If i found some new bugs i will tell you.

Posted by: Mack Nov 14 2005, 08:20 AM bots can shoot, but they don't listening my commands! When i trying to give them orders, they just stand still and requesting new orders...

oh for forks sake!!!

give it time. aint my fault they keep changing every bloody mod update

Posted by: Mack Nov 14 2005, 11:27 AM

okay...just tell us, when you will update rcbot (or just dll)?

Posted by: Cheeseh Nov 14 2005, 12:09 PM

god I dunno whenever I fix it. whenever i get a mail back from flayra or some Ns developer that can tell me what they have changed.

i can say that the order message has changed, especially the order types. If you give a bot a Build order it will work ok. If you give them a defend order it will crash (gulp!), if you give them a walk-to order they think its a hold-position order

actually its more likely the shape of the SetOrder message changed drastically meaning that vital information can't be found such as locations to move to etc

Posted by: Cheeseh Nov 14 2005, 04:42 PM

i've uploaded a new dll

Ok looks like something was removed in the SetOrder message, i took it away from the new DLL i posted aswell which seems to fix most Orders given to bots.

now bot working well but, they don't using welder...

Weld waypoints are broke in NS 3.1

Posted by: Mack Nov 16 2005, 03:04 AM

hmm, what about "weld me"?

Posted by: Cheeseh Nov 16 2005, 05:04 PM

god.tongue.gif well that isn't exactly a bug. It's a new feature. This dll is only temproray to work with ns 3.1 at the moment until all new features are coded. tongue.gif

this dll causes my amxmodx admins to not be recognized, any fixes?

Posted by: LordSkitch Dec 4 2005, 07:33 AM

It doesn't affect amxx at all, did you install NS to a new folder and forget to copy over your amxx users.ini? tongue.gif

Posted by: Cheeseh Dec 4 2005, 01:46 PM

did you ass around with liblist.gam files... or didnt update liblist.gam after installing ns3.1?

Posted by: ktrain Dec 11 2005, 02:28 AM

liblist.gam use has been deprecated for some time now, i use the command line option " -dll addons/metamod/dlls/metamod.dll" to load metamod

no new folders involved, although since i tweaked teh rcbot configs this problem appears to have been resolved, so thanks for your time and sorry for any trouble

can't say why this was happening specifically, but it definitely appeared with default install of rcbot, and disappeared only after going thru the rcbot configs, where i changed many things, so can't say exactly which setting was screwing it up

Any chance of linux support?

If not, I would gladly compile it on my linux server if someone could give me a brief explaination of how to do that, once it's done i'll send it here.

what about a new version rcbot for ns 3.1? Welder usage is most important in combat, but bots don't use it!!

Posted by: LordSkitch Dec 14 2005, 10:27 AM

They will, but they have to have a welder, and they have to see the CC damaged.

Posted by: Mack Dec 14 2005, 12:02 PM

no they don't, even if i give them "weld target" order, they don't listen me. "Weld me" is important too

Posted by: Cheeseh Dec 16 2005, 01:45 AM

the weld waypoints are broke in NS 3.1 (yet another repeated quote from me lately).. they all have the origin 0 0 0, even if you try and give humans them they'll be like "eh?? ?Wtf!"

i dont know if theyre fixed in the new server update, you should get that and run a server to get it to work therefore if you are using the client you're screwed.

could you make the updated dll for standalone? cause meta mod shit in my face and pissed on me cows and played with MY barbie dolls! that WAS MY BARBIE DOLL! (eh?, soory about that smile.gif ) so can you make it for standalone?
