Question Raven Guys: Do Bot Command Scripts exist in JKO?

Here's reposted from my post in the Multiplayer strategy forums:


Original post:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Now I need to test these and maybe somebody knows what the JK2 equivalents are. These are from Q3 so obviously the names are different, anyway:

Quote:
Start up a game with Grunt and Ranger on your team and practice with these commands.


/say_team I am the leader -You are now in control of your bots.
/say_team grunt follow me - Grunt now follows you wherever you go.
/say_team ranger camp the rl - Ranger will now go to the rocket launcher and defend it.
/say_team grunt dismiss -Grunt will now stop following you and roam freely.
/say_team grunt patrol from ra to rg - Grunt will now patrol from the red armor to the rocket launcher.
/say_team ranger report - Ranger will tell you that he is camping the rocket launcher.
/say_team ranger follow grunt -Ranger will now patrol with Grunt.


Actions can be given to multiple bots by including (and | , ) between the bots you want to command. For example:

/say_team grunt and ranger camp here
/say_team grunt, ranger camp here
/say_team grunt and ranger follow me


General Group Commands

/say_team everyone follow me
/say_team everybody follow me
/say_team everyone camp here


** Note: You can not give the message /say_team everyone follow grunt because Grunt will try and follow himself.

The basic bot commands:

grunt (report | what are you doing?)
grunt (follow | accompany | cover | go with) ranger
grunt (follow | accompany) ranger for (number) (seconds | minutes)
grunt (go to | go get) (item | weapon)
grunt (patrol) from (item | weapon) to (item | weapon) for (number) (seconds | minutes)
grunt (patrol) from (item | weapon) to (item | weapon)
grunt (camp near) (item | weapon)
grunt (camp | defend | guard) (here | there | weapon | item)
grunt (camp | defend | guard) (here | there | weapon | item) for (number) (seconds | minutes)
grunt (help | meet) ranger
grunt (help | meet) ranger (at | near) the (item | weapon)
grunt lead the way -> then give grunt an action, he’ll wait for you to follow him.
grunt (kill | hunt down | get | go get) visor
grunt wait for me (near | at) (item | weapon)
grunt wait for me (near | at) the (item | weapon)
grunt (dismissed | dismiss | stop action |
grunt who is (the leader | team leader)
grunt is not (the leader | team leader)
I (quit | stop) being (the leader | team leader)


Squads and Sub teams

You can form squads within your team. Commanding the entire squad by addressing them with the squad name you indicate.

An example of squad forming.

/say_team grunt and ranger are in squad beta - Grunt and Ranger are now in the squad called beta
/say_team beta follow me - Grunt and Ranger will follow you.
/say_team grunt leave your squad -Grunt leaves squad beta
grunt (and | ,) Ranger are in (team | squad) alpha
grunt (and | ,) Ranger (join | create) (team | squad) alpha
grunt leave your (team | squad)
ranger join (team | squad) alpha
grunt ungroup


CTF

Giving your bots commands in CTF is very important. One thing to remember is letting a bot become the leader and listening to them is sometimes the best strategy.

All the above commands work in CTF Plus
grunt (get | capture) the (red | blue | enemy) flag
grunt (get | capture) (red | blue |enemy) flag
grunt (defend | guard | camp) the base <-friendly flag


If a bot is the team leader and you forgot what you have been ordered to do then just type one of the following and the leader will tell you.

For these you do not need to address the leader directly.

/say_team what is my command
/say_team what should I do
/say_team what am I supposed to do
/say_team what is my job


Some examples for CTF:

/say_team I am the leader
/say_team grunt defend the base
/say_team ranger capture the enemy flag


Synonyms are available for most items:

Red armor = ra
Yellow armor = ya
Shotgun = sg
Machinegun = mg
Grenade launcher = gl
Rocket launcher = rl
Plasma Gun = plasma
Lighting Gun = lg
Railgun = rail | rg
Bfg10k = bfg
Quad damage = quad
Regeneration = regen
Invisibility = invis
Battle Suit = bs
Haste = haste
Taken from:

(Note: I've seen these commands posted on other sites as well, in relation to Quake3 Arena)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
End of Original Post.

Now let me say that I HAVE tried them and failed to get them to work in JK2 1.04.

Can any Raven guys confirm/deny the existence of bot commands for team games in Jedi Outcast? If they exist, is there a special way to enable them we don't know about, or what are the new commands if they have changed?

Thanks very much, this would really benefit a lot of people to know... Unreal Tournament had this feature built in and it was very easy and cool to use. In any case, it'd be great to use in JK2.

Bot commands? Easy........

When you're a blue/red team leader playing Jedi Outcast on your server, you just give the bots an order. There is downside to this, though. In order to command a bot in a game, you must be playing a character that is emotionally attached to that character.

Here's an example:


Since my game name is Topshot, let's say I let loose Luke, Kyle, Jedi, and Jedi Trainer. I choose Lando to play as and be team leader. The map is Bespin Streets. And now, if you don't mind, a little role play:

Topshot:"Lando, stay behind and guard the flag!"

Lando accepted my order successfully.

Topshot:"Luke and Kyle, go out and distract the red team while I
go out and capture their flag!"

They do that successfully, except Kyle dies, but I still manage to get the flag to my base.


Remember, you must be playing a character emotionally attached to the bot you want to command.

If you don't understand, I'll be putting a site up soon that contains demonstrative videos of my training techniques.

One of them will be instructing a bot to do what you say.


"My name's not 'Adam We'........or is it????"

Whoa.. this is an old post that I missed. Does this really work??


The "perfect" guide lists the bots that are "attached" to each other, but what commands would a person use?

Anyway, any new info is appreciated...

Yeah, it works. Try something like "Desann, protect the flag", and he'll just keep near the flag, but he'll still keep running back and forth. Just not outside the commanded position.

Anyways, they'll obey commands ike to "<any bot> follow me!" Just basic commands like you would use on Quake or whatever.
