what is bots from the following?

what is bots from the following?

sv addbots <skill> <amount> -- to spawn several bots; <skill> could be a number
                          from 1(easy) to 10(most advanced), or could be a
                          range like this: <min_skill>..<max_skill>
                          that'll allow you to create random set of bots with
                          different skills; example:  addbots 3..6 5
                          it'll create 5 bots with random skills from 3 to 6;
                          skill 0 has special meaning -- bot with this skill
                          level will be adjusting his abilities dynamically
                          to match player's skills;

Looks like a server command to add computer generated players for the server?

bots, short for robots.

That command looks like it's from Quake3. It tells the server ("sv") to add robot players ("addbots") of a certain skill level and quantity. This is usually done so that you can have a game of quake 3 by yourself against computer controlled players, or to add a few more teammates to a multplayer game where there is only a couple of real people playing.

VRBonesCommented:
Press tilde (~) to get the console, then type that command. You should also be able to ad dthat command into a configuration file if you find yourself constantly typing the same commands over and over again.

Here's a (somewhat dated) tutorial on commands: http://hosted.planetquake.gamespy.com/deathmatch101/q2/guide.asp?page=q2dm15.htm

Hi Suoju,

For Quake 2, download the Eraser Bot from here- http://www.fileplanet.com/35414/30000/fileinfo/Eraser-Bot-1.01-(FINAL!)

Then follow the instructions in the readme file :)
