    A little extra in the update: BOTS

    the command tf_bot_add will add bot to the game.

    I havent got this working yet, but it seems interesting.

    seems this only works on LAN servers.

    Yea, they said bots where in beta testing. Also it only works in KOTH.

    Also, the backpack has been glitching for a lot of players. I've had similar issues.

    fun fact; bots don't spy check very well, it looks like they try but cant grasp when your acting like an obvious
    spy aka sap spamming

    It's pretty easy getting them to work in your own koth map. There's some issues that might be resolved via tweaking the nav, but the tools are a little iffy currently.

    I'll put up my own video a little later.

    I heard they play Medic better than most human players

    Sure not, the medics just stick to the heavies and dont heal anyone else, this is bad (except you are the heavy).

    They play most classes at an above-average level. aka I get owned all the time. I think this is quite handy in map testing.

    Yes, they're actually pretty fine for map testing (in very early alphas at least, you know, to get the general gist of how the game might play)

    They screw up badly in some extreme situations (like one Spy), but they're fairly good overall. They work in Arena too.

    This is going to revolutionize map testing. No longer do you have to worry about heavily differing skill levels, ragequitters, complainers. No longer. No longer.

    I think I'm in love.

    In demolition, they always get stuck on a railing on the path to mid, they need some time until the jump oder it.

    Also, when i tested them in demolition, only blu really attacked, half of red team stood in spawn until cp2 was capped. I know 5 cp doesnt officially work yet, but it cant be so hard to force all bots to attack if it is such a map.

    I hope they will increase the bots gamemode knowledge soon.

    Also, bots take a lot of performance, at least on my pc (C2D @ 1.8 ghz), with 24 bots i get between 10 and 20 fps.

    "If we all push at once, this damn wall is certain to break!"

    They didn't manage to get past that wall... but after a few minutes one guy would manage to take an extra step and sneak in the cap area.
    Then they got stuck in another doorway when attacking C.

    Silvertrail is too much map for the bots to handle currently. It relies much on jumpshortcuts and height advantages.

    Nope, if you play with them they NEVER heal you! (well, they do just they're the really fucking annoying type of medic that chooses a target and sticks to him like he's a god or something)

    Playing with them isn't too fun, either they're ignoring you and are easy to kill or there's a dozen of them aimbotting you.

    There's so Spy or Scout AI for them yet, and they're only programmed to fully understand KoTH.

    Spies work, but they don't disguise, cloak, or backstab. But 10v10 spy revolver wars is fun.
    Scouts work just fine.

    Use "tf_bot_force_class random" if you want scouts and spies mixed in with the rest of the bots. Off to crosspost this in the other thread.

    Icarus, I noticed one of your pics was them playing on a 5 CP map. So do the bots work in more than just KoTH?
