BOTS should not show as players when you are looking for a server! If I
wanted to play a bunch of bots, I would load a local game and not mess
around playing them online.

Little workaround: choose a server you want to join and click
on server-info. If there are two or more bots they all have "joined"
*exactly* the same time. And that's unlikely for human players.

I always see bots as having a time of -1s, in server info.

or use HLSW it shows up bots in brackets so you know how many bots there are
without getting server info

I find BOTs take enough CPU power away from the game that using someone
else's is a definite advantage.

As a Server & Clan admin we find the use of Bots useful.
We always leave 4 on when its empty. That way if an individual come in he
has a choice to play with them or go else where. As opposed to no choice.

We try to reduce/eliminate the Bots as people join. We do find they can
help fill an empty server.

Now I haven't heard of t h a t game in a while. But what does it have to
do with CSS?

Ohhhh - "d e c e n t"...

;-)


Must be one of my settings. On a 3GHz HT PC (which I thought was pretty
good), running any more than three BOTs makes the game lag so much as to be
unplayable. Might try it again, though, to see if I can make a cap video of
that hitbox thing...

Yeah, I agree - nobody joins an empty server, in my experience...

i run source on an xp3000+[166fsb] with 512 dual channel ram & 9700pro
with 7 bots - the framerate counter almost never turns red [below
40fps, i think]. usually fps drops when all ts/cts contact & a couple
smokies go off then everyone goes auto-fire mental.
if i add 2 more bots i'll see the framecounter go red quite often & on
cs_compound it almost never goes green.
you don't mention how much ram you have but if <1GB you might think
about upgrading, always assuming your gfx are in the same league as
your cpu.

Probably not - Matrox Parhelia 128. It's mainly for video editing, I can't
really afford another machine for gaming. Even if I could, I don't have the
room for it.

As for RAM - 512 Mb

i'd say that gfx is where you need an upgrade. geforce 6600GT is the
value for money gaming card currently but i have no idea about its
video editing suitability.
for a card that's as good with video as with games, ask in
alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati & a.c.p.v.nvidia.
