Overview

This is a server-side bot for Half Life 2 Deathmatch. It has been written mostly in order to fill a server with more opponents when there are not many players around. The current version of the bot has been reported to work with Half Life Deathmatch : Sources. In the future, more Steam servers mods will be supported.

Its current strength has been improved a lot since the original public availability.

Features

  • Half Life 2 server-side fake player
  • No manual waypoints. The analysis of each map is automatic.

Media

Being a pure binary add-on, there are not a lot of media available around right now.

History

A friend bought Half Life 2 around Christmas 2006 as its first FPS since years. Playing and training against bots sounded like a good thing at the time so I started to write one.

To guide a blind character unable to know what it has in its pockets in order to inflict pain to players was a bit harder than I expected but here it is.

Team

  • Hurricane : Geek and computer scientist

Localized versions

Pain is an international language.

Anyway ...

The bot "speech" is in a very basic status and has been set with English text. There are plans to develop this specific part and add languages.
