They seem to own when it come to winning saberlocks in MP duel but they are useless at navigating a map and they won`t use Kata moves . :confused:

Please don`t flame me for using bots, because my broadband modem is down and I am reduced to using my old dial up connection :(

I beleive that there is a cvar you can change to alter how many saber locks there are. As for beating them, it just takes practice I guess :)

The bots are going to follow whatever bot routes have been set up, and they still seem to run away sometimes like in JO.

i wish bots used npc data, since npcs in mp are far superior to bots, since they don't need routes.

The bot routes for all JA MP maps are an absolute shambles. They are always getting stuck and have poor navigation. CTF mode is pointless when using bots. JO had far better bot routes IMO !

It may have been a better idea if Raven had left bot support out altogether.

As long as you can load maps into SP and spawn NPCs, I can't see every really playing against bots...

You're kidding right? I tried spawning NPC's into MP and they generally spent more time getting lost or killing themselves than putting up a real fight.

At least that was my experience.

The bots aren't masters (like in UT), but they are usable, just like they were in JK2 (though I wouldn't mind seeing some improvements, especially in Siege mode).


The other thing about bots is that they're usable in MP games with other players. Whereas to spawn NPC's in you have to enable cheats on the server first. ; p

Siege mod bots would be nice but I don`t hold much hope for that.
