Hi...Today I played my first 3 games (online FF) of Quake in at least 11 years. Wow, memories. It was fast and furious and I had a ton of fun. But, I feel like I want to revisit all the old maps with some bots before I embarrass myself with human 1v1 or team play. I am pretty sure I saw Frogbots install when I did the nQuake thing. But, how do I even get started? I have not seen a menu option in-game.

I'm just looking for the console commands, or something, to get me into a bot game on the maps I remember.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Welcome back!

Yep frogbots are included in the nQuake pack. If you for ex. type map dm6 in the console you'll create a ffa (default) bot game on dm6.

Useful commands: map, restart, powerups, addbot (add2bots, add3bots, add4bots), removebot, removeallbots, skillup, skilldown.
Say you want to play 2on2 with bots on dm4. In the console, type bot_2on2, powerups, map dm4, add3bots and ready, and you're off.
The standard commands for the different bot game modes are: bot_1on1, bot_2on2, bot_4on4, bot_arena, bot_carena and bot_ffa.
If the bots don't team up properly, you can put these two lines in your config (or type them in the console):
localinfo team4 red
localinfo team13 blue

You can also make bot games with main menu / multiplayer / create.

Btw, there's a special dm2 version for the frogbots, as they're unable to play the original one. It's called frobodm2.
There's a version of the bot that can play endif too: http://parboil.quakeworld.ru/parboil/fbma102.zip


Good luck!

just use the bot_ commands, there is like bot_1on1, bot_2on2, bot_4on4, bot_ffa etc... it will set up everything for the given mode, then you type addbot and go ready
