Hi, I'm obsessively locating all the old Quake 1 bots (Quake C mods) and mirroring the mod files on GitHub here: https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/QuakeBotArchive

I've also created a cool quake 1 bot genealogy mindmap:
https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/QuakeBotArchive/blob/main/mindmap/QuakeBots.png

We're up to about 121 bots now, but the archive is not complete, and we need help.

- Maybe you know a bot that is not listed?
- Maybe you have a mod .zip that I cannot track down?
- Maybe you know about an older version of a bot we can add to the list?

I also have a wish list of broken URLs for bot mods, maybe you have one of these files:
https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/QuakeBotArchive/blob/main/research/wishlist.txt

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm open to suggestions for great places to look. I've been digging through Usenet from 1996, through gaming magazine CDs on the internet archive, through old gaming news sites (blues news, etc.) from back in 1996 and so much more.

I've also been trying to track down the bot authors themselves to see if they have backups of their old .zip files or source code to contribute to the archive. All email addresses from back then bounce.

- Maybe you know one of the bot authors and can reach out?

Thanks, Jason.

An alternative to src379.rar with some more maps.

Thanks @ Mike, I already have Trinca's src379.rar waypoints. Much appreciated though!

Cheers @dirtbox, but the archive is focused on QuakeC bots (mods) and I'm excluding engine bots and proxy bots at this stage.

I'd kill for any old copies of frogbots or even fmods, so much of that stuff is lost now
