foxBot! ExAI-based Multiplayer Coop Bots

[Reusable] foxBot! ExAI-based Multiplayer Coop Bots 1.6

I give permission for this addon to be reused, modified, or ported by anyone
  1. Yes

  • Revised AI based on CobaltBW's ExAI mod, with additional features and fixes
  • Support for any combination of players and bots in multiplayer
  • Predictive movement logic for more efficient following and enemy bopping
  • Improved understanding of (vanilla) character abilities, shield abilities, and super forms
  • Independent behavior for grabbing rings, monitors, etc. as appropriate
  • Support for attacking objects or destructible walls their leader pushes against
  • Spectator support for non-respawning game modes (can guide bots to next starpost when dead, etc.)
  • Integration with rejointimeout to remain in the game as a bot after client disconnect
  • Automatic control handoff between player and AI based on input (like Tails w/ Player 2 input)
  • Option to disable AI entirely for an experience similar to FuriousFox's ClassicCoop mod
  • ... and more! Give them a shot, they may surprise you :)
Beep Boop
Use addbot <skin> <color> to add bots into the game, and removebot to remove them.

Alternatively, use setbot to turn yourself into a bot, which will allow an AI to take over while AFK.

Most commands are available in splitscreen by appending "2" - addbot2, setbot2, etc.

>> Alternatively, try out the simple foxBot launcher for Windows versions of the game. <<

Console Commands
Use bothelp to display all available commands in-game at any time.

Here are some of the important ones:
  • ai_ignore - Ignore targets? (1 = enemies, 2 = rings / monitors, 3 = all)
  • listbots - List active bots and players
  • setbot <leader> - Follow leader as bot (-1 = stop)
  • addbot <skin> <color> <name> - Add bot by skin etc.
  • alterbot <bot> <skin> <color> - Alter bot's skin etc.
  • removebot <bot> - Remove bot

this addon is great now my team is finished and wanna ask one thing

which set of commands do need to make the bot play in matches, ctf etc?

This is by far the best bot mod I have seen. I love how the bots really look like players, with path finding logic and enemy bopping. I recommend you make a command where instead of the bots following you in a line, which is one bot just following the other up to yourself, they can all follow the just the player, which would make having a bunch of bots easier for them to catch up to the player.

Most outstanding work ever! Its just perfect in everyway possible!
It makes the game feel like... well a game! PS: I don't know what the cfgs mean in the foxbot launcher

Honestly, this is really good. Now I can pretend I have a friend with me when in realty I have no friends at all... PS: it makes me sad that the AI can't detect when you are about to fall and need to be carried up flight unless you do it manually.
