Extra Bots for Co-Op LAN!!! HELP!
« on: 09-02-2012, 07:02:28 »
I have a team of four guys at work playing FH2 like it's going out of fashion, the problem is we want more bots in co-op!!! 16 just isn't enough to verse.

I am currently looking at 4 config pages and getting little results and it's driving me nuts.

This is my progress so far, I found this config file mentioned to adjust the bot count:

Program Files\Battlefield 2\mods\fh2\ai\aidefault.ai

I changed this:

aiSettings.overrideMenuSettings 1
aiSettings.setMaxNBots 31
aiSettings.maxBotsIncludeHumans 0
aiSettings.setBotSkill 0.85

... to this:

aiSettings.overrideMenuSettings 1
aiSettings.setMaxNBots 64
aiSettings.maxBotsIncludeHumans 0
aiSettings.setBotSkill 0.85

... and I get an extra 30 bots in the game. The problem is, the MORE I ADD BOTS TO THE AIDEFAULT - THE MORE BOT SHOW UP ON OUR TEAM. The ratio stands as 17 Germans/47 Brittish.

Please note, I have never adjusted the bot ratio settings in any file... it's always set to 50 (as in 50/50 even steven), so I can't see how this would need to be adjusted if it says it's even.

Any suggestions?

IF NOT, doesn't anyone know how to do this from scratch, ignoring my approach????

Ok

Here it is

The original bot count was 32 until BF patch 1.4

Then it was bumped to 48. Unfortunately FH2 still uses 32 as it stadard. Thats why when you increase the numbers to 48, the teams are imbalanced.

Now because 48 is what BF2 was caliberated for, 48 will allow you to set ratios perfectly.
Once you increase above 48, your ratio caliberation will get FUBARed
However 48 is almost 50, so it sets a standard, 64 bots will need to have ratios set to 64 to get it back to 50:50...

YOu are seeing what I am saying?

naturally, you can only have up to about 96 bots to get a 50:50 ratio, and 105 bots to get a squad at all.

Set your numbers and figure out where the 50:50 mark is, then work from there.

PS: TO GET QUICKER RESPONSE, POST ANY BOT-RELATED ISSUE IN THE SINGLEPLAYER SECTION.
