View Full Version : Bot Orders again (From the Q3TA Manual)

I know that JA has it's own "orders" system (more like "suggestions") in the form of the "voice chat" option in Siege/CTF/TeamFFA, but I think they had something more in mind originally.

Now we know in the bot text we have them issuing "order accepted" dialouge, but there's also the issue of those "weird symbols" people found CTF and such.

Well, having never owned a copy of Id Software's Quake 3 Team Arena (the same engine on which JA/JK2 are based), I picked one up cheap awhile back and finally installed it. In the manual I found the familiar symbols again.

To make a long story short and avoid confusion, here's some scans of the manual. I've seen the exact symbols in the assets of basejka, only they're in color. So apparently they were planning to put in the ability to give bots (and teammates) orders complete with icons, but they didn't finish it.

I figure perhaps this info might be helpful, or at least throw some ideas out on the table. Of course it is my dream that one day a mod like OJP will support giving bots "orders" but here's maybe another helpful tip on the way.

See attachments....

And finally here's a copy of the "bot commands" document included with the game (in html format). (http://strategy.jediknight.net/BotCommands.htm)

Hope this helps with adding bot orders to OJP someday!
