Equal number bots on both teams
« on: 21-12-2018, 01:12:44 »
A friend and I want to play co-op, either over lan or the internet. I've run into a bit of an issue; I have the number of bots set a 96 at best I can get around 31 bots one team with 63 on the other. I don't see how it's possible to have a fair game with that ratio, how can I get it so there is 48 bots on each side?

Hmm, AFAIK you can't get the Axis powers to ever have more than 48 bots on their side, but if you push around the slider (ingame, in the COOP map settings), you should be able to get up to 48 Axis bots, and the remainder would be Allied bots.

That didn't work but I think I know how to fix the problem. In aidefault.ai there is a line "aiSettings.overrideMenuSettings 1" Hence the menu setting doesn't matter, I think I just need to find the line of code for bot ratio and add it to aidefault.ai or UserSettings.ai It must be something like aiSettings.botratio I need to find it

EDIT: I figured it out, I made some changes to serversettings.con based on this old web site, http://web.archive.org/web/20131113164708/http://www.aixtended.com/faqV3.html . Second for some crazy reason the setting for number of bots within the local server menu is in effect controlling the number of bots on one of the teams. I set it to 48 and now I have 43 on one team and 48 on the other, which are playable numbers.
