man behind the omicron has finally dediced to speak up..
Perhaps you're interviewing me? :)
why dont you tell us a
little about yourself?
I'm from the Netherlands. I'm studying computer science at the
Technological University in Delfi. I like programming but
designing stuff is usually much more fun. I like to draw as well
but most often I don't take the time to do it.
what is this omicron
thing you've created?
It's an artificial player for Quake, originally designed to
play the deathmatch type of game :)
why did you decide to
The Omicron bot was primarily made to give my clan members and
myself an oppertunity to practice before getting killed on the
how long time did you use
to create it?
I really don't know. Doesn't really matter because it was fun
to create it.
are there any new
releases coming up? if so, when?
Yep there will be a final release. It has been sitting on my
hd for quite some time now, actaully way too long.
i've heard some talk
about a major new feature - any comments?
Just wait till the final release. And please don't expect too
much of it :) (Haven't been working on the Omicron bot all the
time since the last release.)
do you still play the
omicron, or has quake2 taken over?
Haven't been playing with the Omicron bot for quite some time
now :) When I'll play a first person shoot-em up Quake2 is
probably the game.
heh - i've got to ask:
will there be a omicron2, and if so - when?
I would love to create a new bot for Quake2 but at the moment
I haven't got the time.
will the omicrons source
ever be released?- why\why not?
Nope. I don't know if it would be too nice to see all kind of
Omicron clones around.
what do you think of the
upcoming frogbot? are you afraid it will take omi's 1st
From what I've seen of it the Frogbot looks very cool at the
moment. I'm not afraid the Frogbot is taking the first place. I'm
not developping the Omicron bot anymore so it might just as well
take the first place. Besides I think the Frogbot will be quite
different in some aspects so everyone should just choose the bot
he/she likes best.
anything else you'd like
to add before we end this interview?
Yeah Timm, don't play too much with bots ;)
thanks for doing this
interview with me man.
the man has spoken..
