while wearing sunglasses, while the AAS file is the same as if seeing persons
running around in daylight with sunblock factor 60 on. Yeah that's the
Currently the Gladiator bot only supports Quake2. Although creating .AAS files for the other games is possible, you won't be able to use them with the Gladiator bot!
Game: Quake 2
Q2DM3: There is a misplaced ladder brush just outside the lava trap with the hyperblaster bait, next to the real ladder. Occasionally the Gladiator bot has problems using this virtual "ladder".
