Quake III Arena's bots finding peace: is this true?

Postby mankrip » Thu Jul 04, 2013 4:23 pm

I just found this screencap. Do any of the Q3A coders here know if what's described in it is actually possible?

Nope, not at all. It got enough people to believe it for some reason though that John Carmack had to debunk it. https://twitter.com/ID_AA_Carmack/statu ... 9418103809

I mean, come on... :P

:) Thanks for the link, Spirit.

That only applies to servers that stays on the same map. Here's the thread mentioned in that page.

It's a "copypasta". The screenshot showing Q3A in the users' "My Games" folder not in a game directory and with subdirectories is a dead giveaway, not to mention bots having their subfolders. Using "My Games" would imply strict support for Windows 2000 and above.

You know it's bad when people believe made up stuff about games that are long have been open-sourced. It's so trivial to debunk.

I also haven't run into an AI-based mod that made huge log files either.
i should not be here
