Note:Use only BlitzBot 2.05Alpha for (dod 1.0 Beta) works for lan only
Very little waypoints for BlitzBot for either Day of Defeat Beta 1.1/1.2(you would have to make those good luck lol!).
Day of Defeat Beta 1.3 works in a partial way (you can see why in the video info)
BocBot1.2 supposedly works better as dedicated server but it's untested because a lack of waypoints
Anybody fancy a go making them?

Edit:To mods remove if you want to? but i'd like to point out when the change from WON2 to NeuWon happens it means you only have to use original and official mods/patches/HLDS wink.gif

I used to make wpts for bocbot and some of them are here on this wpt pack...let me know if they work.
https://www.mediafire.com/?wkg5pbzffi36ti5

Yo Zneaker (bocbot author) hope you're still out there!!! Plz say hi if you're still coding away hehe!!!


Ok found some blitzbot wpts on my old bot treasure box of yester years just let me know if they actually work...
https://www.mediafire.com/?4i4azby2ctc9gel
I have some really old sturmbot beta 0.5 I think the first ever release might work on dod beta 1 let me know if you wanna test it out.


For dod beta 1.3 I'm using sturmbot version 1.1.
For dod beta 3.1 I'm using sturmbot version 1.4.
http://sturmbot.org/index.php/downloads/ca...er-dod-versions

Thank you those are really helpful if you have Sturmbot 0.9 and Sturmbot 0.9b/sturmbot beta 0.5 i will take to complete a full set of betas.

Other known bots for dod that are hard to find
Abot
Teambot
FlamerBot
BlitzBot 1.0 Alpha/BlitzBot 1.7 Alpha
A very rare Japanese bot called either bot93/94 for dod

Two other bots i can't find Landserbot 1.0 or AgroBot for War in Europe mod

You might know me under my old username from years ago Sydslag i was lead beta tester for Johan for Sturmbot so gimme a shout on Steam if you want too

Also you should really use Sturmbot 1.5.1 for dod 3.1 but i guess if 1.4 works use that instead

One last thing i sometimes host a dod 1.3b/3.1 server so if anybody wants to hop on as i need more clients this would help out no end.

Edit:BoC-Bot 1.2 currently crashes Day of Defeat Beta 1.3b with new waypoints.
Also BoC-Bot 1.2 i can't seem to load any of default BoC-bot v 1.1 waypoint pack that came with BoC-Bot 1.2?(seems odd 1.1 waypoints inside of BoC-Bot 1.2?)

Lot's of confusion with BoC-Bot at the moment do i need
BoCBot Versions from: BoCBot Version: 1.0 to BoCBot Version: 1.3?
I'm also guessing any waypoints will have to be specific for each version of the bot?

Sturmbot collection...here are all my sturmbot files. May be you should try some them out first since sturmbot has better AI hopefully will work with the earlier betas of dod.
https://www.mediafire.com/?41ficshfiehcbcc

BoC-bot collection ...old wpts won't work on the last updates of this bot I think
so you need to check the dates of the wpts if there's no readme or infos about them.
AS for the last update I think I made some wpts for those I just can't recall which one
now but all the boc wpts I have are here so hope you find the ones that works.
https://www.mediafire.com/?i6lkkhkqeczwaqb

As for the other dod bots wow I don't even remember some of those hehe.
I do have some flamerbot and teambot.

Nice to know you're one of Jowo's tester really sad we lost this awesome bot developer. I wonder if anyone got a hold of his sturmbot source codes?

Anyway let me know if you got them working...CHeers!!! :-))

Thanks for the files cheers as far as Sturmbot goes we only started dedicated server support at Sturmbot 1.2 so older betas may work as dedicated servers but i bet in a limited way but should be ok for simple lan.

At first look it seems BoC-bot files i have now are all BETAS i think need VERSIONS from 1.0-1.5?

Or looking at history it would be either 1.0 or 1.1 or 1.3 versions specific for DayofDefeat 1.3b

Wow, retro boting, brings back some memories biggrin.gif ... Spent a ton of time playing UT/Unreal mods with bots though out this whole period, it may be my favorite game of all time. For half-life engine i think the first bot I tried was Jumbot for HLDM. Then it was HPB_bot(tfc & flf, DMC), oddbot 1.8.1(flf), foxbot(tfc), podbot 2.4(CS), then dod with sturmbot 1.1.

As with tfc/foxbot, I stuck with dod/sturmbot a long time, I never really tried any other bot for dod, not even shrikebot, which was supposed to be good, but sturmbot was and is great. 1.4 & 1.5 on dod3.1beta are quite good. Also playing sturmbot 1.6 on dod1.0 retail (free mod version) is good. I learned to waypoint with most of these bots, but mostly foxbot & sturmbot.

Then I found rcbot, some rcbot version before v0.29 with Natural Selection 1.0, and I got hooked on that for a very very long time, thru many NS betas up to NS3.2, and I can't forget the awesome whichbot... NS has to be one of the best multiplayer mods ever, for half-life 1. And I never would have tried it without RCbot support... Did a lot of rcbot wpt modifications for NS and svencoop 2.1, so played that some, and tried rcbot with battlegrounds briefly.

Then I got into Enemy Territory for a long time (year+), mostly with omni-bot & fritzbot (bobot too). Played around with modifying wpts & scripts for omni-bot.

Then I came back to RCbot for NS & Svencoop 4.5+. I did install BOC (1.4?) into flf 1.5 at same time as oddbot, but I don't remember actually playing it, it's still there!!!

Yup, I guess I love my little bot armies, too... biggrin.gif

I have these bots from your list:

Note, none of these show dod support in their readme's, so they may be too old?

Abot - Abot_beta7.exe - ? not sure about this one, no readme, executable setup files only...
Teambot 1.0beta & 1.2beta - cstrike bot w/support for HL, TFC, OF, and FLF
FlamerBot 1.0 & 1.3 - action half-life
AgroBot-flf - flf only version, no wpts

For BOC bot I have these Release versions, they are NOT beta:

bocv10.zip - 1.0
bocv12.exe - 1.2
bocv14.exe - 1.4
bocv15quick.zip - see feature list - looks like a patch from v1.4, no wpts? just dll's & cfg files, also SO files for linux...
bocv20tf.exe - see feature list - test version f

I also have 24 tiny wpt packs for BOC, mostly for dod, FA, and a few flf wpts. I'll need to get genmacs wpt pack to see what he has there, maybe they are allready in his pack???

I'm on dialup, uploading is slow, so please prioritize if you want any of these... It may take me a few days, cause I have RL things to do....

To be honest im still no wiser to which version i need specific for DayofDefeat 1.3b this would be used for dedicated server testing.At current Sturmbot 1.1 for DayofDefeat 1.3b works but only in a limited way

So far as i can work out:
BoCBot Version: V2.0 f (no good)

BoCBot 1.9 is there such as version?

BoCBot 1.8 seen this on the net no idea if it's beta or version?

BoCBot 1.7 is there such as version?

BoCBot 1.6 is there such as version?

BoCBot 1.5 does not specify for which version of dod

BoCBot 1.4 dod 2.0

BoCBot 1.3 i would hope is for dod 1.3b? (best bet) can't find this bot

BoCBot 1.2 seems to be for dod 1.3b but theirs no info to confirm this?

BoCBot 1.1 unknown can't find this bot?

BoCBot 1.0 unknown can't find this bot?

At a guess LOL because of no real info i think i need 1.0/1.1/1.2 i have/1.3?
and because i have other work for WON2 and Neuwon for other mods i won't have a chance to make any waypoints.So i might be cheeky and ask anybody to make a basic set of those to test map rotation

Even then let's say i find the correct version of the bot theirs another problem
almost all of bots come with no waypoints and it looks very much like each bot version will only work with waypoints made for that version


I don't like to say it but it's one giant mess because of little or no info or meaningful read me's
Add confusion with beta and versions too I've even seen bocbot file named version 1.0 beta ohmy.gif
Also no helpful info in the history files

Yes, the doc's with the bots are a bit lacking on versions. I checked these here...

bocv10.zip - 1.0 - the dod_liblist.gam shows for dod1.2
bocv12.exe - 1.2 - you have this
bocv14.exe - 1.4 - history shows dod 2.0 support, the dod_liblist.gam also shows for dod1.2 !!! Probably just not updated in the liblist?

Did you try v1.4 on dod1.3b? For matching bot versions to mods, you can compare the mod (dod.dll) date to the bot dll date to get an idea what might work. The bot dll should be newer or slightly after the mod dll. But sometimes an older version will work???

Do you want me to send you bocbot v1.0 or v1.4, and the wpts I have? the wpts are dated from aug 2001 to march 2002. the dll for bocbot v1.0 is dated 10-8-01. The v1.4 dll is 3-13-02.

Yeah, looks like you may need BOC v1.1 or v1.3 for dod1.3b, which I don't have. May I ask why be using such old versions of dod, versions before 2.1? Is it because old classic maps crash on dod 2.0 or newer?

Sure send them over it can't hurt i think need just 1.0 and more waypoints.1.4 i have also so don't need that
Well out all of beta's 1.3b/dod3.1 are one most remembered
The plan is get them all working so people have a choice currently Steam breaks old mods
So at a later date with or without bots we will test other mods but not all of betas for them LOL
Other versions of bocbot might be useful for dod 1.0-1.2 i know currently blitzbot only works on lan for dod 1.0
If i had my way i'd make all of alphas work too but i can't find those laugh.gif

@256 colors...BoCBot Version: V2.0 f (no good)
- what do you mean? as in AI not good or just plain buggy?

...personally I really tried my best to support this bot by making some wpts for all the mods it supported but it's AI never really improve that much compared to Sturmbot. PMB (racc's author) even commented on the messy coding it has one time. So if you got this working hehe hope you have some fun with it coz I did try to run it again last year on DOD beta 1.3 I think and after a while I was a little disappointed nostalgically again due mostly to it's crappy navigational behavior and combat but anyway it was fun doing the wpts for it and lots of tnx to Zneaker for giving me some missing Battlefield files so my pirate copy would work haha tnx man I won't forget that!

@Madmax ... hi yah bro! have you seen those huge tities at MM4 haha?! LoL!

BoCBot Version: V2.0 f (no good) for DayofDefeat 1.3b

Anyway i checked all waypoints from all of betas and the packs none of them work for BoCBot 1.2
They ether crash instantly or error say no file exist or they load but bots just don't use them
So only two waypoints that came with BoCBot 1.2 dod_cherbourg/dod_omaha work and load
I'm busy with WON2/Neuwon and the waypoint system is alien to me so making them is no go
Not sure why in the public release of BoCBot 1.2 barely no stock waypoints and few custom one's seems like utter madness to me

Edit:
i decided to use the custom maps needed for boc-bot 1.2 dod_oslo_v3 is missing and can't be found
Very very strange model glitches the game will often crash moaning about allie-light T.mdl which i've never heard of and it can't be found on the net

Well I really can't remember now what's the last version I was working on when I was still active at Boc-bot forum since I lost interest to it once sturmbot kept on improving for the better or I got into other mods probably.

Why not just work on whatever sturmbot or shrikebot is capable of running smooth on the old dod betas?

Well I got nostalgic so fired up dod beta 1.3 ...the stiffy players haha! Man brings lots of good old memories once in game...it's like a time machine except my pc is just way too powerful now haha unlike decades ago my poor 400mghz amd could barely run 10 bots.

DoD beta 3.1 seems the best or more complete compare to the current steam version since the glider missions and paratrooper models are kinda refreshing to play now. Why on earth they had to remove those?

Still Sturmbot v1.7 shines really well at dod steam especially at dod_charlie, I had so much fun playing it my 5 year old kid was LOL as well so I let him play some hehe.

Anyway LONG LIVE DOD and all it's beta releases and all the bots that goes with it.



Oh btw seems someone managed to run a dod beta 1.3b dedi with sturmbots on it already...

Gone as far i can go with sturmbot 05-1.1 are not geared for dedicated servers
Shrikebot won't cover much in terms of beta's

9 out of 11 the versions of dod work as dedicated server with or without bots
I didn't cover dod 1.3 or dod v1.0 retail yet
I don't have a linux setup so no way testing dod 20-v1.0 retail
So as you can see it's fuck ton of work and research and it's all a one man effort so far

That video at /sturmbot.org is my work but as read me says it works in a limited way
1 works perfect without bots over WON2
2 will work with Sturmbot 1.1 over WON2 but you might see a random server crash around the 8th map rotation


Edit: Think i found the problem bocbot/dod hates this map dod_bcne the cause of lots of crashes and headless bots/moaning of missing allie-light T.mdl which nobody ever heard of before?

Lots of screaming fits later now the test server for Day of Defeat1.3b with Boc-Bot 1.2 is ready and should up all day tomorrow

You will need the same client setup used for Day of Defeat1.3b

Because of barely no default waypoints came with Boc-Bot 1.2 the server only uses these maps sorry nothing i can do about this

Oh and i noticed i have to use bot loadconfig and bot loadwpt in the console each and every time the maps rotate one problem you can't because it's broken

dod_omaha
dod_cherbourg
dod_2fort
dod_avesnes
dod_bridge
dod_fortress
dod_inice
dod_spessart

So Boc-Bot 1.2 is a entire waste of time it's beyond me how it even got a public release
Only two options left try Boc-Bot higher version which i think will crap out anyway or i reckon even BlitzBot might work? At least with BlitzBot i'm in touch with author who's willing to fix small bugs but not restart the bot project

@256 color...Ok read your post...have you tried contacting bocbot author, Zneaker?

For the bot loadconfig and bot loadwpt I think you can use some plugins for those that will auto-inititate them every map change, those global and specific map configs feature amx mod x plugins has by default can do it coz I use them a lot on my multiple game/mod CS 1.6 games where I can load a zombie game on map 1, then FFA mode on map 2, gungame on map 3, domination mode on map 3, all maps even have different custom weapons and player skins...and so on...really drove me nuts but so satisfied when finally everything was running smooth but then again it's on good old HL engine I'll be lucky if it did not crash for the next 5-10 hours haha!

Anyway good luck on your dedi server classic dod work I'm sure you'll get them running soon.

Btw found this super useful plugin that will remove teamate player collission very useful when using bots especially on maps like dod_charlie....no more gaggle of bots stuck up together on those pesky ladders making the flow of axis more smoother hehe.

Ok what's the name of this plug in that will auto-inititate them every map change.

I tried bocbot 1.4 and again no waypoints but seems to work with dod1.3b with older 1.2 waypoints so far

any cvar/commands you want re-initiated during map change are default features on amx mod x main/stock plugins...you simply put the commands you need on the amxx.cfg for it to know what to execute every map change the server.cfg can't do or not recognize...
http://www.amxmodx.org/

OR...
you can also try using a autoexec.cfg for those commands you need much simpler and hope it works...if not then you need a more powerful metamod based server admin tools like those of , amx mod x.


OT...
On side note...bec. of you or this thread I'm so addicted to DoD 1.3 again and I'm fixing or improving the wpts on dod_charlie especially on the ladder areas, drive me crazy when bots are stuck there bec. it's trying to reach the upper wpt while it's on the side of the ladder but somehow I found a nice fix...Jowo you clever dude!!!

Sturmbot is still way better than Shrikebot ...and wish someone could edit shrikebot commands so I can ran them at the same time...I can load them at the same time but seems ..
