Bots available for Source

Archived from groups: alt.games.half-life.counterstrike (More info?)

Today's update has added bots to the game.

Is this meant to be GOOD news?

Now when I play on a server, thinking that there are other players
there, I could end up playing against robots. CS is a MULTI player game.

    I think so. Playing on LAN with only few players is boring for me, so I
    like to use bots. Sometimes it is handy if you start up an internet
    server to make it appear ppl playing, then when someone else joins you
    get rid of bots. Like, 1 players by (him/her)self is boring while
    waiting, but bots give you something to do.

    That also happen(ed/s) occassionally in v1.6 and earlier. I reckon they
    will add a filter to distinguish bot servers.

    Jesus, you're cynical.

    For every bot in a CS:S game, you'll see the word "BOT" in place of a number
    in the latency column when you press the tab key. Do you really think the
    developers hadn't realised the potential issue you're suggesting?

    Easy solution ....Don't join a server that you see bots in .

    Maybe you should do some research before posting, you show how much of an
    idiot you are.

    Whilst i don't mind playing against bots, it would be nice to see on the
    serverlist how many human players there are, rather than just that there are
    a total of say 12 out of 16, as 10 of those could be bots, and you only know
    when you connect.

    Just in case people still werent sure how to spot bots before playing a
    server:

    have the "bot" column open in ur server browser, its been there since
    css was released, it now works properly.

    if you want to know how many bots are playing, open up the Server Info
    window and the bots all have a time of -1
