Adding bots on Desert Combat - CQ maps

Post by wasabi »

Has anyone been able to add bots to the Conquest maps in Desert Combat? I know the AI code is there because a few of the maps have singleplayer and some custom Co-Op mods have been created. I was trying earlier and did the following but to no avail.

DC_DesertShield001 (my multiplayer CQ with bots patch)

AI.con <- copied from singleplayer version
Conquest.con <- added "run Ai v_arg1"

Ai/AiBehaviours.con <- from vanilla BF1942 game files
Ai/AiDefault.con <- from one of my other CQ maps.

Server won't start up at all - no error message, just a quick black flash of the server .exe starting up and then it enters an endless restart loop.

I had to redirect some of the files from singleplayer folder (in cq) to get it to work. (vanilla bf42)

You could try looking at my Dystopia City map for IS82 mod. That's a good template for adding bots to Conquest and should be relevent for any mod. Though as I recall you have to manually load in all the aiTemplates and such. It's been awhile so I forgot all the details. As it happens it appears the download links I made for this map still exist via battlefieldsingleplayer's file hosting:
