Rename bot's in cod4x 1.8 or remove bot's of scorebar?

Recommended Posts

I have a server, and recently I have suffered a few attacks from aimbots, they come from different guids from the same IP, possibly someone using a lan house or something similar, this made me activate an anti-aimbot script that I believe is authored by "Crazy", but for the bot's not to be self-balanced they have a score that is taken by the average score of the players, these bots don't play, I would like to rename them to something like BOT-ANTIAIMBOT or ANTI-AIMBOT to let my players know what it is about and don't think the bot is actually part of the game, removing it from the scorebar would also be a valid option but I have no idea how to do it, I would not like to remove the playernumber (botnumber) / (40) from list of servers, just rename or hide them from the score bar, would anyone have any ideas in mind? I'm kind of stuck on it and I read in several places that it is not possible to rename them due to the fact of deceiving other players, but it is not my case :X

I appreciate any ideas or suggestions.

forgive me for tagging, but i really need an answer, if possible, and you guys always have good answers.

my post will very possibly end up being forgotten in the list of forums, I hope I'm not being too evasive acting this way.

thank you very much and my apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused!

Can we hide "playing" bots from the scoreboard too?

They are pretty annoying for zombie bot mods like rotu or btd.

Just noticed they are visible when alive only. Whenever they die they are hidden.

 

That's not perfect but good enough i think.

a few weeks ago I was looking at this mod

I don't know how exactly it was done, but you may be able to extract this if you take a look at the files

BTD does not use the traditional bots as rotu does. BTD does not require a player slot.

Are ye right, btd are just moving xmodels.

 

However, i have to correct myself.

Dead bots are visible on scoreboard, what i did now is to kick em all once the map ends.

We don't have a problem when you rename your bots. But GameTracker has.

hello yes I have a question, sometimes very annoying what to do with the vulture gat GameTracker, this is our game and not GameTracker I do not need GameTracker I generate my servers myself for my HOMEPAGE SO WHAT SHOULD THIS DO

gametracker is a very popular website where players are looking for cod4 server to play on. exposure on gametracker is beneficial to your servers as more players are attracted. however, gametracker detects bots by their player name "botXXX" if bots are named differently gametracker assumes those are real players. because of that gametracker is delisting servers doing that.

You can name your bots whatever you want. We don't stop you. However you need to use script to give the bots names. I believed it is better to give you more control about what name your bot will have you want to spawn. That why botnames.txt has been replaced by extended script function argument.

Where's the new "extended script function argument" to rename bots? or now we can simply set bot.name = "botname" ?

I guess it's a matter of time before they delist my servers..
