I'm hoping someone has the answer to this question.
I enabled bots on my server so you (and me) have something to do while waiting for others to join. The only problem is that after a few map cycles the server would fill up with bots. (actually.....it would fill up plus one)
Now even I know it's a hack that I must have in my base3 folder, but does anyone know what file it is?
I deleted one called todds that seemed out of place and a few more that were just numbers, but it's hard to tell what are maps and what are bots cause they're all pk3 files. I notice I had one on today called "cash". I looked and can't find a file for that anywhere.
when i had looked there were 5 bots, i noticed in settings you have it set to 2 weird how it overrides the setting, but then i guess if given the command it would just add more, whats also weird yesterday was max players is 9 an 10 bots were there and normally you can join a server and it just kicks a bot, i tried and it wouldn't let me join instead i got the cd key crap at times and other times it would just say it was full
To answer Jr's question ,no maps arent assigned bots. If you unzip/unpack a map pk3 file all you should find are the following folders and text files- maps,textures,scripts,models and levelshots and possibly a readme text file or 2. As far as the funky bot activity on your server goes ,someone or something has or is re-writting the server config file. The config file has been corrupted and you need to go in and re-write the portion concerning bots.Once you'e gotten it corrected make a backup incase it happens again.Your baseq3 is easy to fix.I dont remember what exactly is in the baseq3 by default after a clean install (1.32)but basicly you should only have the pak0 thru 8 ,q3config, q3key and maybe a screenshots folder. Every bot file I have in my baseq3(custom bots) starts with the word bot or bots. For instance bot-spawn ,bots-aeon_flux. Custom models are md3 files(md3-aeon_flux). Map files you should know.
