BotShop Quake2 bots (Mongoose)

Server-side bots run as part of the server, and therefore have no true lag. Server-side bots can cache information to the server or to a client, it must use server's RAM, and can play other (human/bot) clients and bots made for that server. The server-side can manipulate any clients data, at the author's discression. Server-side bots are generally easier to code and test, but it's hard to emulate a real client on some platforms (Quake). One must also make false lag for the bots and try to emulate a client as well as possible to give the other clients a fair game.

Oak has dynamic pathing and roaming. Like most of these Quake2 bots, I haven't had time to test them... so who knows what the latest version has?

In the future this will more have info on bots made with the SABIN base, and the SSL add-on to the normal SABIN base bot. Anyone can customize a bot for themselves via my SABIN Scripting Language, or William's mission language. Note all the bots on this page use code from one or more of the SABIN authors above. =)
