Default New CS 1.6 Beta



Among other changes, the latest beta of Counter-Strike 1.6 adds bots (to be featured in Condition Zero) and more realistic weather effects (rain, snow, fog, etc.). This is not a public release; Stream is required to automatically download the updates. Screenshots and changelog up at CS-Nation.

I like these changes alot, the weather and fog effects are great additions and the knife is a nice change. I think the problem with the old knife was that it was so bright anyone could tell you have it out, maybe it won't be as easy to see now that it's camoflauged.
And ritual did a good job on the bots, I've noticed how they walk instead of run when under the dust bridge and how T's camp the bomb sites. I hope this is a taste of what's to come with CZ.

Ritual, I think Valve has been checking out these forums and decided to buy you some time. I've been having fun in the bot games and like the interface. So... I'll give you one week. Thats right, I won't be impatient or anything. One more week of bug fixing and your going gold.

What does "bots can go rogue" mean ? Bot sneaking option ?

Most of the time the bots will stick together and go the same way and if you say "follow me" or "need backup" they will respond. However one round a bot might choose to do his own thing. Go a different path and try to take on as many as he can. This is going rogue.

Valve sent out an interesting PDF file about the knife design and composite structure.

I agree about the text, i've been playing for awhile and on every server everyone says the same thing--the text is just too big, infact it's harder to read. I really hope they fix this.

idd, they don't fall of the roof, they just jump of...
but give them some time to learn not to do it, as I recall bots keep updating their knowledge of the map.

As test I've put on an custom map, de_oriental. After waiting 4 minutes while the bot analayzes the map.
They played it very well, they jumped of bridges to take shortcuts, camped on strategic places etc...

all that without any waypoints.

what do you think it was doing for those first 4 minutes? generating it's own waypoints.

what's really fun is to hop into spectator mode while they learn a map. buggers hop around the map at random. [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

and for anyone that might be a bit confused, the bot in CS 1.6 bears no resemblance to the AI that you will see in Condition Zero.

OMG you have no idea how much PODBots piss me off.
I swear if newbies thought they were real players, I'm 90% positive they'd call the bots hackers..

When you kill 6 people in Unreal Tourment it is "monsterkill", in Quake it is "excellent", in Counter-Strike it is "kicked by console"


LOL. Thats just excellent. [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
