    Hello I am trying to play an arena map (arena_suijin_rc2) by myself, but it won't let me start without another player. Is there a console command that will let me play an arena map with just myself?

    You can add a dumb bot by typing "bot" in the console. (Dumb bots won't do anything by themselves, smart bots that attack use the tf_bot command)

    then use tf_bot_add 1 , they'll move if the map has a .nav file or if they see an enemy.

    That's the most useless complaint ever. You need to state what you did, what result you got and what result you expected. Especially exactly what result you got.

    Typing "bot" in console does not do anything.

    Set sv_cheats to 1 first.

    Okay well I tried:

    sv_cheats 1
    mp_allownpcs 1
    tf_bot_add 1
    tf_bot_add
    bot 1

    No bots are spawned. Is it because of the map? arena_suijin_rc2. I just want to be able to play the map but it won't let me join a team because I need more than 1 person. Is there any other way to play this particular map solo? Maybe some command to get rid of arena mode idk.

    Just to make sure: you typed it into console not the chat riiiiight? ^^'
    The commands above should have spawned bots for sure :I
    Also, maybe try adding sv_maxplayers 24 before the bot command? :/

    As the maker of suijin, it's definitely not the map. I do it myself all the time to test it.

    for arena maps, you have to spawn yourself before they'll join the game round. otherwise, the one bot will just stay in spectate - just so you know

    I do this all the time when I want to walk around a new arena map. All you have to do is join a team, sv_cheats 1, and tf_bot_add 1 in console.
