I have posted this question on the General forum and on Raven’s site. I have also done some experimenting. Unfortunately, I have not been able to come up with a way to give orders to bots in team-based multiplayer games, like Team FFA and CTF. I have tried the standard Q3A say_team commands, but they did not work for me. I have looked at the cmdlist in JK2, and tried some of the commands (shown below) that looked promising. However, I do not know the syntax for these commands, and the combos I tried didn’t seem to have an effect. To me, it looks like the bots can be controlled, since they seem to exhibit “scripted” behavior in the SP missions, e.g. following the player. I am wondering if some mod guru out there has done any experimenting yet on bot control for a mission or campaign. If so, perhaps you could point me in the right direction on this. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Some Commands I have tried in some form:
taskOwnFlag
taskSuicide
taskEscort
taskRetrieve
taskCamp
taskPatrol
taskDefense
taskOffense
prevTeamMember
nextTeamMember
denyOrder
confirmOrder
nextOrder
vosay_team
vsay_team
