    1. i haven't gotten a chance to use my old laptop. its a very slow laptop so its taking ages to install the modding tools on that computer.

      thanks, yea the mw2 bots will use the ac130 and chopper gunner more often now.

  3. Hey Mac. I discovered something in regards to lean. The commands for leaning still exist in MW2, but, don't do anything as of now. Here's what i did to discover this;

    1. Go into config_mp and set "seta_monkeytoy" to 0.
    2. Went to the bottom of the config, added "spu", then pressed enter twice.
    3. Typed bind N "+leanleft", pressed enter, then bind M "+leanright".
    4. Saved and set the file to Read Only.
    5. Tested in-game. No noticeable effect.
    6. Went back and removed the + from both lean commands. Went back in-game, tested again, and got unknown CMD errors for both commands.

    So, all we need to do is get it to work somehow, and you can still keep your bot menu.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thats interesting. so i guess there is a remnant of lean in the game. i don't think it can be fixed through GSC editing. controls are something that is hard coded in the game.

      Delete
    2. Actually, using the directions above, you can even bind console commands to keys (whioch work in singleplayer). Maybe we can use that to get bindings for leaning. All we need to do is actually get it functioning in game.

      Delete
    3. If all else fails, could a second version of the mod be made that returns configuration to external files like in older versions of the mod and allow leaning in-game instead? Me, and surely a few others, would like that.

      Delete
    4. its a good idea and nice feature to have, but i barely have enough time to work on bots so i can't guarantee anything. i'll put it on my to-do list.

  4. And now the Mod auto-save the configurations?

  5. The game still crashes for the same reason: iw4mp.dat not working. In the details, the module of the crash was ntdll.dll.

    I installed all of the programs in the redist folder EXCEPT the dotNet 35 program, because it simply will not run. I click on it and nothing happens, no pop ups, no crash warning, absolutely nothing. What is going on?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hmm... well there is no ntdll.dll in the game folder so i'm not sure where that error is coming from.

      i'll test out the dotnet 35 redist to make sure it works.

      which OS are you using? it should work on all operating systems...

      Delete
    2. I'm using Windows 7.

      Although, I'm not quite sure that Steam correctly installed the friggin game. So that's why I bought a non-Steam disk version online and I'll see if that works. I mean it should, I never liked Steam.

      Delete
    3. I'm still getting the same friggin crash even with a retail version. A fresh install, and yet it won't work, WHY?

      What's stupid as well was that the retail version still requires me to use Steam! I hate Steam! Do all PC retail versions of MW 2 require Steam?

      I saw the video you made, macporterjoe, and you have MW 2 installed at a specific directory. How do you do that?

      Delete
    4. pretty much all PC games need steam. i know, its stupid. i don't like steam either. thank goodness for cracks.

      you probably aren't installing it correctly. it should work with retail copy.

      Delete
    5. Ok, then what exactly can I be doing wrong? I delete local game files in Steam when the installation fails, reinstall the singleplayer and multiplayer and applied the files from the RSE just as the installation says. What else is there to do?

      Is there a certain way to install the game that I'm not using?

      Delete
    6. did you install all prerequisites? DirectX? VCRedist? Dot Net?

      maybe install new service pack for Windows?
      you should have Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP2, or Windows 7 SP1

      run as admin and disable any programs running in the background (such as steam or anti-virus program)

      Delete
    7. How do you install dot net? It wouldn't do anything when I clicked on it.

      Delete
    8. I have it all fixed now. There were a couple of programs that somehow got onto my computer: SearchProtect and PremierOpinion. They were causing the problem, surprisingly and annoyingly due to some other programs that try to do their best at installing other unwanted software when going through an installation.

      Delete
  6. If you want the mod to work in React apdonato;

    fixBots()
    {
    foreach(player in level.players)
    {
    if(isDefined(player.pers["isBot"]) && player.pers["isBot"] == true)
    {
    player thread whatEver();
    }
    }
    }

  7. Great work Mac as always,but I have to point out that bot reaction time is still pretty high,if not even higher than it was :P I played a few games against easy AI's and they just react like crazy,killing me before I even manage to fire a round...maybe it's just me being a bad player but still...anyway I can reduce it manually? Or if you could do it for the next release,that's ok. Also,and this has been present for a long time,seems like a bug to me but whenever I play as "the good guys" (seals,special forces,etc) the bots on the other team (the "bad guys" i.e. terrorists or spetsnatz) seem to be way much harder to play against than bots on my team,and same goes when I play the other team...now idk if that's something that can be fixed,but I thought I should let you know.Anyways,keep up the good work man,you're still the best at this bot mods :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thanks, yea i added a very small random time delay to bot reaction time. it is very small and barely noticeable. i will definitely tweak it more for the next version, and i will definitely make the easier difficulties easier.

      the main focus i aim for is that the bots need to be challenging. it is suppose to mimic a real match. you are suppose to die, its part of the game! coming up with different tactics to try and survive is part of the fun. you could be just getting very unlucky and constantly being matched against tough guys. bot skill is based on the difficulty you set but it is still somewhat randomized based on the tier of difficulty. so when you set it to "easy", it doesn't eliminate the chance of encountering a tough bot, it just decreases the chance that you will. "retarded" difficulty will always spawn idiots though, and i will definitely try and make them slower in the next version, as i am doing a complete redesign of classes.

  8. Hey Joe, any luck of implementing foot steps sounds to bots?

    1. i have it written down on my to-do list. the file name that was posted before may not work though as the sound used in the code is probably called by a different name. i haven't tried it yet so i'll experiment. i could always look back at pezbot or meatbot for ideas... i'm not sure if those mods ever had footstep sounds...

      Do you still have the scripts that were giving you trouble on the old binaries?

    3. So you think we can get DLC support soon?

      Delete
  14. I found this ( http://www.moddb.com/mods/black-frontlines ) mod on moddb which has bots working on all maps, including the dlc ones.
    The trouble with it though is that ranking doesn't appear to be working.
    I create a server, bots auto fill the lobby, then finish the game without earning any xp.

    If you could somehow reverse engineer how they managed to get the dlc maps to appear and work in the map selection screen, that would be awesome. :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. There are other mods as well, 2 of which are for combat training with bots.
    Both of them support the dlc maps, however they are not as feature complete as what you've made so far. :D

    Does anyone know how to start a mod via a shortcut? Without having to switch from the game manually?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i know how to add dlc support, that isn't the problem. the problem is the crashing issues for the BG client. try to play convoy or berlin wall with a round based mode (like SnD), on round change the game will crash.

      the biggest reason though is because BO1 modding tools only seem to work in Win XP. the only Win XP that is available to me is on a really old and slow laptop. the modding tools is essentially the decompiled game, so there are millions of files and folders. so many that even fast computers can take a long time installing the modding tools for. so to give you guys an idea how slow my Win XP laptop is,

      its a Dell Inspiron from 2005
      1.4 GHz Intel Celeron M single core CPU
      originally had 256MB of RAM but i had to upgrade it to 768MB RAM because it was bottlenecking so bad on the RAM
      ohh and a integrated graphics that only supports up to DirectX 8!

      so yea, its taking awhile... i move over small sub-directory chunks at a time, slowing building the full modding tools directory. i don't even know if it will compile the mods correctly, but i can't try it until i finish building the directory.

      Delete
    2. I found some nifty tools for extracting and compiling ff files.
      I tested them with your own patch_mp.ff file to extract and then recompile it.
      Worked like a charm on windows 7 64 bit.
      They're really small so you don't require any of the modding tools.
      You just need to know what code to write.
      Here's the download link:

  16. Very nice job Mac!

    With every version your bots become more and more fun to play with ! The Semi-Auto sniper bots spamming was something i had already complained about , glad to see it nerfed !

    Unfortunately your combat training patch for BO1 will probably never work with me but i will keep searching for solutions around... When i click to launch on the Bgamer client it says that Steam must be running to play the game and crashes...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thanks i'm glad you like it! i hope to make many more improvements!

      as for BO1, try turning off all of your background processes (such as steam, AV, etc.), then try launching the game as admin.

      maybe try installing the patch again, or reinstall the game if it still doesn't work.

      Delete
    2. I Will Re-Try that with another client i downloaded but that will take some time to download... it bothers me that even owning BO1 playing online is hardly possible due to low player pop + my shitty geographical location...

      Delete
    3. ok let me know if it works out for you. i'm curious why BO1 has such low player counts while the other call of duties (say MW2) has like 8 times the amount of players. maybe kids don't like dedicated servers as much?

  17. Hi there, Macporter. Animamundi69 here, stopping by to say hi and complimenting on the constant mod's improvement!I've been playing Titanfall quite a bit these days after getting extremely frustrated with Ghosts and I was amazed , how much better Titanfall plays on my laptop ( macboook pro 2012 with bootcamp )!. If someone came out with an offline client for this game, it would be just amazing and a great opprtunity and new challenge for you too...hehehe . The game already have AI (which could do with a tweak here and there ) and has private matches ( still in beta though.....not really possible to play solo games without at least on other player on opposite team ). How do you feel about Titanfall ? It's a lot of fun ....Except for that "smart pistol" ....hehehe.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hey anima thanks for stopping by, yes titanfall is much better optimized than ghosts. frankly anything would be better optimized than ghosts. but the game is humongous in size! all of that uncompressed audio bloating to 50 GB! in that respect its just as bad with size optimization as ghosts. so for that reason alone i wouldn't be interested in playing it (i'm a bit limited on HDD space). but yea the cannon fodder AI could use ALOT of tweaking. and of course its online-only DRM is stupendously moronic. i do hope an offline client comes out but it is far from what i could consider a great game. overall i was very disappointed in Respawn's (old IW's) work on this title. another great example of a massively overhyped game.

    3. Can I clean install RSE v25 then install v26 over it? Is that how your updates worked and I've just been installing them wrong all along?

      Delete
    4. it is recommended to do a clean install for each release (as depicted in my v22+ install video) since i can't guarantee changes in a new version won't interfere with files that were installed in the past. but for the sake of v25 to v26, the only change is the core mod file itself, RSE_v26.iwd. this is technically the only file that you need to replace over RSE_v25.iwd. i removed a few files for v26 since they were causing too many problems for some people. i often find that the solution to problems that people have is to kiss. "keep it simple stupid"

  19. Have you heard of CMT's project, SPV3, for Halo Custom Edition? It, among other things, gives the campaign a serious graphical boost. You should look it up (though most pictures on the web are of the old demo release, which still looks very nice). The demo even includes VISR from ODST.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no i haven't seen this before. thanks for sharing info on it. i saw a recent video, it looks very good. it doesn't look as good as Halo 3, but definitely looks better than Halo 2, which is an impressive accomplishment.

      Delete
  20. And this boost is only possible through a third-party extension called Open Sauce. The graphics rival most Xbox 360 titles.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no offense to that project, because it does look very good for what it is, but most Xbox 360 titles look a lot better.

      Delete
    2. Which video did you watch?

      Delete
    3. this one from july:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TQSGzR95xU

      the gun models look great, some new effects, textures, models, and animations. but many of the textures and models still look to be original. the lighting engine also doesn't look that different. the official Xbox 360 Anniversary Edition looks much better. i'm not saying that they should have done better, because its amazing for a mod. but its not Halo 3 or Anniversary quality.

      Delete
    4. Maybe my judgement is just clouded. But, the original models and stuff are mostly placeholders (the Scorpion is being replaced completely by the Grizzly, and they haven't updated the Truth & Reconciliation interiors yet). In regards to lighting, they will be using something called directional lightmaps (provided by Open Sauce) to add a little realism to scenes. In the demo, they did try to update all the geometry, but, that caused a performance loss. You should also look up The Silent Cartographer: Evolved by CMT as well. They completely redesigned the physical level (though story and dialogue remains the same). The Library will be receiving the same treatment (which I predicted long before they announced it).

      The main point of bringing it up is, well, you are missing out on so much just because Halo is "old". With SPV3, as you saw in the trailer, they are adding alot of new features from newer titles. Heck, there are some people porting Sierra 117 (the first level of Halo 3) to Custom Edition. As of now, that's the closest we are going to get to Halo 3 on PC.

      By the way, there are things in the trailer that are easy to miss. Watch the breakdown here:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olgQ6nnMwoM

      Delete
    5. i already saw the breakdown. the problem that often occurs with these mods is even if they are able to achieve quality similar to halo 3, it will be very unoptimized and will run poorly compared to real developers designing an engine for these new effects, animations etc. because adding extra geometry and effects will tax the old game engine far beyond what it was designed to, so it will look good but run poorly. i will definitely keep following this mod though. it has a lot of potential!

      Delete
    6. Glad you are willing to track the mod. If it makes you feel better on performance, the lead dev actually took a recent demo to PAX this year, which people played and had nothing but praise on it. According to the dev, the girl who got proposed to on stage played the demo, and liked it enough to actually allow him backstage (or something like that) and introduced him to some of the 343 and Bungie people. Also, both CMT and the Open Sauce devs (most of them) have been working with CE for almost a decade, so, I think they know what they are doing.

    3. Sorry to crush dreams, but natively on MW3 gsc (if it will get gsc modding), it WILL not have the addtestclient() exe function. That means bots are impossible without a plugin or edit of the exe. However I remember back in IW5M days someone did make a working testclient plugin, however the bots only walked in circles, shot and crouched. Just like the vanilla bots on MW2.

      However if the situation does arise that MW3 bots are possible with the capabilities of MW2. I'd love to do a collaboration with you apdonato.

      Delete
    4. yes INeedGames is correct. Unfortunately this is the case. as NTAuthority once said: nice job IW for taking the most fun part of cod out of cod.

      yea i remember that plugin for bots. it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to expand on that and get working AI like we've done in MW2. i was not able to find proper documentation or directions for creating these plugins so i never pursued it.

      and likewise if it would be possible, i would love to do a collaboration with you as well.

  24. And did you know that the MW3 dedicated server tools can be downloaded from steam for free? "Dedicated server" in quotes because it's the full client with all dlc included!

    This could serve as the bgamer client base... how to do it:

    - At the top of the Steam window, click "Library".
    - Below library you will see "All Games". Click that and select "Tools".
    - Look for "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Dedicated Server". Right click it and select "Install Game..."

      RSE v1 - v10 was made by tinkie101.

      RSE v11 - v26 and onward is made by me. who knows maybe tinkie101 would like to return and we could work together or something. i am in contact with him so maybe some day.

      "Bot Warfare" is made by INeedGames and his branched off of RSE v10. Me and INeedGames have learned from each other along the way and shared some ideas so technically we indirectly collaborated. Mine wouldn't be as good without his and his wouldn't be as good without mine. but we create two separate mods that are written completely different. we do not use each other's code, we just shared some ideas.

      i hope that helped cleared some stuff up.

      @Anon2
      yes i should thanks for giving that link to his old post.

  38. Animamundi69 again ,actually, I forgot to mention , Macporter , you should help the guys developing Combined Warfare because their pezbots need a lot of work . Check out the mod, I left the link in my previous post.

    1. hey yea i actually went back to CoD4 and tried to work on PeZBOTs. unfortunately there is a bug with one of the commands, its the test clients move command in the console. it is set "on" by default. and the command does not work correctly, as in, it cannot be turned off. i believe this command to be the reason why the bots jitter so badly in killcam. not being able to fix that issue is a real buzz kill for me so I really can't pursue any other CoD4 bot improvements as long as that problem still exists. i don't really have a lot of free time anyway and i'm sure you guys would prefer that i keep working on MW2 and Black Ops when i can.

    1. ahhh most should work but please don't discuss that here. trust me most would be compatible and you should have no trouble finding what you need. i would avoid rips. go for full versions.
      just make sure you buy the game if you like it. and of course you have best chances of running this mod successfully with steam version

      Delete
    2. thanks bro. keep up the great work

      Delete
    3. btw, what's the difference between rip and full version?

      Delete
    4. rips remove stuff to make the package smaller. good rippers do a great job of getting size reduced with no drawback but bad rippers remove something that is needed to run the game. (may not be noticeable at first but cause a crash later on).

      Delete
    5. let me add some more infos....sometimes rips are done for the sp/campaign only or vice versa....sometimes they also downsize audio and video stuff and you have a game that has low quality audio and video like what I got getting the mw2 ripped version. sometimes they also use these awesome extreme compression apps that makes a 20 gig game compressed to 3 gigs for example. 2nd to third gen ripps have hidden virus or tojans though.

      Delete
    6. there are some repackers/rippers that do an amazing job of compression while still maintaining quality. look up a guy named "kactus", he makes some of the best lossy repacks. he made a mw2 rip that is only 4.3 GB! it is singleplayer only but i made a little MP addon package that makes the full multiplayer + DLC available for just an extra 2.2 GB. so in storage my full MW2 installer is just 6.5 GB!

      btw, what do you mean by "2nd to third gen rips"?

      Delete
    7. those ripps that are repack again basically so not really ripps just repacks sorry for the confusion.

  44. Thanks again for another awesome update Mac!

    Quick question though...

    Anyone else noticing that after you Prestige, bots spawn as low-ranking player (levels1-15 or so...no Prestige level bots) no matter the difficulty you set then at?

    ReplyDelete
  45. ^^^Update:

    I was able to have bots spawn at the proper levels based on difficulty again by shutting down everything and restarting the game.

    Apparently it does this when you change settings to max bots (9 on each team) and set difficulty to Retarded. Play a game. Next game set bots to Balanced or higher and the bots will remain low-ranked retards. =P It doesn't happen all the time but most of the time.

    No big deal though as there's a workaround. Just trying to help.

  50. Hey joe I have some ideas you could try to implement to MW3 nots if they are possible.What about being able to decide exactly which setup the bots use,so e.g. you can have them run support for you etc.Second would be that they are able to call in those streaks effectivly.Would be cool to see bots for MW3 in the near future with those features.Good luck and keep up your great work.

  53. Mercury

    Recently a friend brought me RSE26 and I've been giving it a bash, here are my thoughts: I prefer to play Hardcore, this has always given MW a more realistic feel for me and that's pretty much why I play the game in the first place. RSE bots unfortunately make the game very arcady for several reasons; They seem to have 360deg vision which makes them more challenging without having to code in some sort of algorithm to make them scan to be tactically aware, unfortunately this means that you can't sneak up on them unless they're focused on something and unless they're running they will engage you from across the map the instant that they come into view, whoever tuned their hip fire accuracy up set it that they hit you too, with almost any weapon at any distance somewhere within the first second. Bots don't seem to be able to see soft cover, firing through it at targets that they shouldn't be able to see, tarps and walls therefore often spout bullets at a player that can't see a pixel of the bot that's engaging them. A major issue is that when a bot is running they seem to be almost unhittable, this is very annoying for players who value accuracy and ammo conservation, often bots at close range can take a whole magazine that's perfectly on target, the bullets only hit them when they actually come to a stop. There is also a problem with the sound, one doesn't hear bots engaging, in kill-cam you can see bots firing at you or other targets with unsilenced weapons long before they hit you and there was no hint of their fire from an audio perspective. The fact that all of them are silent when moving can also be heavily annoying although I can understand how this would make them frag-bait, since they can't be expected to make tactical decisions regarding the noise that they make when they move.

    Please don't see this as simply complaining, RSE is a great way to enjoy a brilliant game, it would just be so much better if their coding made them a little more realistic. Please take a look at what you can do with these issues for the next release rather than focusing on their streak bonus behavior which is really neither here nor there.

    1. hey thanks for the feedback you are 100% right, but unfortunately i have very limited access to the game engine because this game has no proper modding tools! so i am very limited to what i can do. some of the things that seem quirky are actually workarounds to help compensate for another problem. i am still making small improvements but it is much harder than it looks.

      there is one thing in particular, their awareness algorithm is constantly being tweaked for better balanced and i will definitely do more tweaking for future releases. also i will add footstep sounds once i come across the correct file name for it.

    It supports offline, LAN and Online [ for online you just need to login]
    Client is similar to 4D1 so it supports new maps, Bloc, Wetwork, Crossfire, Nuketown...a lot of others cant even remember, it has new weapons, etc etc....it would be good if u make a waypoints for those maps :D :D :D You can try it out.
    Especialy for Nuketown its one of the best maps ever made....

    1. hey thanks.

      react was very buggy last time i checked. so no i would not say its "the most stable after 4D1". if they fix the problems that the client has then i would support it. but until then there will be no support for react client.

    1. Last Stand definitely. The others I don't care for that much, but they could be lowered just a bit.

      However almost every bot has Last Stand. It wouldn't be that bad if they switched to a pistol, however when they go down they keep their main weapon. So you end up getting killed my an AA-12 walking by someone should be dying.

      Delete
    2. actually its just 1 in every 8 bots are given the "last stand" perk. so in a normal 6 vs 6 match, statistically only 1 bot will have the perk, and that bot might be on your team. so frequency that it will happen to you is small, but i understand that basically no one likes the perk. at the very least i will try to improve it and give the bot a pistol when it happens.

  67. hi i am currrently developing an ai mod for mw3. As you guys might know, there isnt anymod supports for mw3. so what ive done is i have taken the base mp for mw3 and basically give it a mod implimentation. currently is in its beta stage and i will be releasing it around next month. But the current problem we're facing is that you cannot unlock titles and emblem as the modded folder was not coded carefully. we'll try to get it fixed asap and release the mods for everyone. However, this only works for the steam version of mw3. And yes, you can play without internet just like the mods joe did. please excuse me for my terrible english as im from germany.

    These maps are ported from SP to MP I think you know that if u were playing 4D1.
    I found the waypoints for bots, some guy made it so if you want to il give u link.
    Cmon man, whats wrong with React client? Pls make your bots mod support their client man, I mostly like React because it supports all those maps which are pretty fucking awesome!
    U were saying u need to change the code, what code? this is the best rse ever made keep it up, but it would be even better if it would support their client so I can play on new maps like nuketown, cod4 classics, ahhhh :D :D
    It wont make me the only one happy, it will make more people happy man, pls think about it :D
