Xatrix + CTF + Bots possible
« on: January 06, 2011, 12:31:46 PM »
I just found out the coolest thing ever :D Its possible to play Quake 2 with Xatrix Mod in CTF Mode, even with Bots. The trick is using good old Gladiator Bot, which includes Xatrix, Rogue, CTF and even RA2 code, which can all be activated selectively using server cvars.
So what I did is first generating an override file for q2ctf6 with xatrix weapons (just for testing purposes). Then I extracted latest gladiator bot linux files into my server's Quake2/xatrix directory, made symlinks for both the pak0 and pak1.pak files from ctf. The problem is, the client also needs to symlink (or copy) the ctf-pak files to the xatrix directory to make this work. It would probably also be possible by copying the xatrix-pak file to the ctf directory and running gladiator from there.
Yes, and then loading up my override in r1q2-ded (+setting some minimum server cvars, most important +set xatrix "1" and +set ctf "1") I was able to play q2ctf6 against Bots with xatrix weapon. The combination of dual fire with the accel-rune really rules. I never saw such a short firing interval before. :) But also traps can be very funny if you throw them into the enemy base.

I can only recommend trying it out. I included my override in this post for anyone who wishes to try. Here is a link to the gladiator bot readme file:
ftp://falcon.ukrcom.kherson.ua/games/q2/QUAKE2/tourney/Gladiator/readme.htm

And here Gladiator bot files for linux, compatible with r1q2-ded old
http://qudos.quakedev.com/linux/quake2/mods/old/Gladiator-Bot-v2096-Linux.tar.bz2
http://qudos.quakedev.com/linux/quake2/mods/misc/Quake2-GladiatorBot.AprQ2.Q2Icculus-gcc272.gamei386.so.tar.bz2

What do you think about it? Does the combination make sense? Would it even be desirable to have a Tastyspleen server running gladiator bot? What I didn't try so far if RA2 mode works with xatrix or rogue code enabled. Can't imagine even RA2 with rogue/xatrix weapons. :D

I have a set of gladiator bots voteable on irtdm2 for instagib practice and they get pretty decent use from people who don't want to just jump around while they wait for players to show.

Sounds like a cool idea to play them in a xatrix ffa.  :thumbsup:
