Hmm... Not much to
say here, except damn!
Not to downplay any of the
other bots out there right now, but Im very impressed with the
Gladiator bot. It has been quite a long while since a bot
challenged the status of the Eraser bot, and dare I say that
this bot (in my opinion) is better.
Using a completely new
navigation system from others, you can tell the the Gladiator
bot moves, and feels different from any other bot out there
installation of this bot is done easily. Once the file is
downloaded, simply unzip the bot into your Gladiator directory
located in the Quake2 directory (ie.
*With the AAS the bot can
theoretically play any map ever made. top
Running the bot:
**Please keep in mind, that the Gladiator! bot launcher and the Bot Johnny
launcher both support the gladiator bot, and are recommended
as they make setup both faster and easier
Step 1: start Quake2 with the command-line parameter
'+set game' followed by the name of the directory where the
Gladiator bot is located. In the command-line, you also need
to enable DM with bots with the parameter '+set deathmatch 1'
(ie. C:\Quake2\Gladiator +set game gladiator +set deathmatch
Step 2: type 'menu' on the console and you can add
bots, with the administrator menu. Commands @ the adminstrator

CTF should be
installed in order to play the Gladiator bot with CTF. To play
the Gladiator bot with CTF all the Gladiator bot files have to
be copied to the CTF directory. At this point you launch CTF
as you'd normally do. Type 'set ctf 1' and 'set deathmatch 1'
on the console and then start the CTF map you want to play.
Use the menu to add bots to the game. The bots will
automatically be assigned to the teams. top
Teamplay is very fun and addicting, and
it's available with the Gladiator bot. Follow these steps to
get an adrenaline pumping teamplay game going!
Step 1: Start a Gladiator bot game on your favorite
map, but do not load any bots yet (running
Step 2: Hit the esc key, go to multiplayer, start

Step 3: While in the deatmatch flags options find

Step 4: Return to the game. To add a bot to your
team go to menu, add bot, and select a bot of the same gender
as you. To add bot's to the opposing team, select a bot of the
opposite gender. This can be done with skins also but it's
easier with models.
Step 5: That's it! You should be getting your ass
kicked by now!
