Working on PeZBOT (CoD4)



With the release of CoD MW Remastered spurring interest, I thought now would be a good time to revisit CoD4 and give this classic the polished bots it deserves.

Since it would be easier to improve PeZBOT rather than building new A.I. from the ground up, I will be spending the next several months working on PeZBOT for CoD4. Here is my agenda:

 - improve performance
 - fix teleporting bug
 - give each bot a random class and only let them use the class they are given for the entire match
 - permanently disable spectator mode and killcam (or fix the wobble)
 - improve bot menu options (add in odd increments for balanced teams in solo play - 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11)
 - add more animations (such as standing animation)
 - add footstep sounds
 - increase bot movement speed (to match human players)
 - make bots throw more grenades
 - make bots place claymores
 - make bots use rocket launchers more often
 - make bots use grenade launchers
 - make bots wait until the match/round begins and stop after the match/round ends

Expect PeZBOT 012p soon.

  2. Two things:

    I don't know how possible this is but is there a way for you to add in a prestige mode since the pc version didn't have one? I'm guessing that'd take a whole lot to do so I'm not holding my breath.

    2. What's the possibility of getting pezbots for World At War working better? I had to obtain WAW through....certain methods....and every version I got never came with a multiplayer exe which you need for pezbots to work on WAW because you have to set a path on it. Is there any chance you could maybe fix that?

  3. Really excited for this, thanks for all the work you put into these projects. I tried going back to cod4 for a bit recently but after playing RSE and the BO2 patch I just can't stand pezbots much. I'm a bit confused about some things that I guess I should ask here.

    -Does BO3 support full mods like CO4 and W@W, or only maps? Will we ever see RSE for BO3?

    -Any plans to similarly improve pezbots in W@W and the galactic warfare mod?

    -Will the cod4 remaster also support mods/pezbot?

    -Recently game_mod was released for black ops 1, which greatly extends the features in the mod tools to allow for full mod support, including custom maps and co-op campaign (https://github.com/Nukem9/LinkerMod/releases). Could this potentially revive the combat training patch to work with steam and dlc?

  5. why not working on COD GHOSTS instead? COD4 is an obsolete game and it already has playable bots.. pezbots... so why not doing GHOSTS?

  7. Thanks for your work. I do enjoy MW2 bots. Can you do the same for MW3? I really like some maps in MW3 yet it is completely unplayable online due to hackers.

  8. With cod4 being one of my favourites, this makes me happy. Your hard work is appreciated.

  9. Oh god! I've been expecting it for a long time.

  10. There is already a fixed version of PeZBOT with this "- fix teleporting bug" Just search for "PeZBOT 12p"

    ReplyDelete
  11. After CoD4, is it possible to start upgrading and updating the others? (even WaW too)

    With due time of course, but mainly i ask for if it's possible for the Black Ops 1 patch to be able to be compatible with steam versions?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hi Joe, were you able to add in footstep sounds in mw2?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thank you macporterjoe! It's possible to improve their movement animations? or it's limited by the engine?

    -----------------------

    By the way:

    1. Highly unlikely,no mod support for MW3 and we were hoping for a bot mod almost 2 years ago already so I highly doubt it

  20. Hey guys. Is it possible to add a bot mod like pezbots into modern warfare remastered? I think it makes more sense. It would be great. :)

      Delete
    2. yes but can you rank up with these bots? like in pezbots?

    4. You can't rank up against bots in MWR

  21. Anyone know if there is a way to add NPCS to Nacht Der Untoten on World At War? I want to have AI backing me up in zombies.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Probably there will NEVER be AI for the zombies section of any of the games.

    2. I've seen a modded map adding NPCs in, but I want to add them in the original maps.

  22. Based on your great job with RSE v33 for MW2, I'm really looking forward to the new COD4MW Pezbots!

    ReplyDelete
  23. When will this be release? Still waiting...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Check out Ineedbots at moddb...google it..it's basically RSE bot but has an option to play the bots on Cod4. It's a little bit better than pezbot in terms of animation but they slide around during respawn and proper animation will trigger once they see and enemy or something.

  25. (macporterjoe) i would like to know if you are going to make a offline client for call of duty ghost. i see everybody asking for it and i know you have alot on your plate right know with cod4 pezbots rework and with mw2 rse. but i would like to know if we can exspect a client to be able to rank up in ghost.

  26. Just found this site. I've been waiting for a PezBot fix for literally years.

  27. sorry for the crazy long delay guys, i know i said "soon" when i originally made this post. i will be working on this more but i am currently very busy at university so its going to be awhile.

    if anyone can comment on this question:

    i haven't tried the bot mod created by ineedbots for cod4 yet and i'm curious if he managed to fix the bots wobbling in killcam. do they still jitter when viewing the killcam?

    ReplyDelete

    1. tested out the bots by ineedbots and yea they still wobble in killcam but it looks like its better than pezbot. overall it seems to be a nice improvement.
