My Pod Bot

  • myPod F.A.Q.

    Since v2.6 A few new features have been added and some commands have been depreciated.

    The Bots have their own will and they issue a "Negative" if they don't want to follow you.

    They don't see you. They see an enemy and engage the target.

    Summary of Bot Reactions to Radio Commands Follow me - Forces Bots in the near to follow you.

    You can specify the maximum number of bots following in the podbot.cfg by the cvar pb_numfollowuser (defaults to 3).Hold this Position - Makes a Bot who's following you, stay a while at that position and look around for enemies.Taking Fire, need assistance - Makes all living Bots (not engaged in a Fight) run to your position to assist you.Need Backup - Basically the same as above, but limited to distance and also the Bots use it sometimes to get some support.Storm the Front!

    - Mighty command! Forces all Bots in the near to rush in the direction you're pointing to when using that command.

  • Feature list:

    Basically their level of aggression is increased so a pathetic frightened Bot could also turn around and flee.Get in position..

    - Bots in the near will try to take a covered position and stay there until they either encounter an enemy, you order them to leave, or they waited too long.Go,go,go - If a Bot follows you, this commands stops him from following.

    If there are other Bots in the near, they will stop camping and going to roam the map again (normally used in combination with "Get in position.."

  • How can I support the myPod project ?

    )Team, Fall Back! - Opposite of " Storm the Front".

    Increases Fear and decreases aggression of Bots in the near so that they are more likely to fall back and stay covered for a short period.

  • How do I play the next item?

    Bot Skill differences There is a file called botskill.cfg were you can tweak most skill parameters of the bots by editing the file 'botskill.cfg' with any text-editor.

  • How do I play the previous item?

    Also take a look into 'podbot.cfg' to adjust some more things to your liking..settings for the Bots if you find them too easy/too hard.

  • How do I play the oldest episode?

    First, Bots with low skills will pause/camp longer and more often, Bots with low skills have a bigger surprise time and they shoot slower and are lucky if they hit something.

    Then there are minor behaviour differences. For example Bots with a skill above 80 use the Knife more often if you're near them.

    If you want to get headshots all the time and attack really fast - add some Bots with a skill of 100.

  • How do I play the latest episode?

    [P*D] = Agressive Bot. [POD] = Normal Bot. [P0D] = Defensive Bot.

    BotChat.txt (default english version). Auto add/kick bot function What do the people want?

    They want to keep as constant the number of bots+players at the server, but sometimes this was not working correct in old PB2.5 (client connection failed - bot didn't rejoin back) - sometimes this made a server empty.

  • How do I play the next link?

    Another people want the same but with the possibility of some manual control of bots on the server (some manual kick, some manual add, some removebots and some fillserver - these function have to be still available).

    How to solve this? Now in code is a variable invisible for user-admin.

    It's name is g_iPeoBotsKept - this variable defines how many bots+players shuld be still on the server.

  • How do I play the previous link?

    This name is only here for explaining how this is working now.

    Known Limitations/Bugs/Problems still present Bots sometimes fall from high places Sometimes stuck in other Bots (but should unstuck after less than 5 secs) Sometimes stuck in corners (see above) Counter Bots sometimes fail to detect the bomb (but happens to humans also, so what?) Bots lack advanced teamplay (very basic team-play and affection is present) Bots are too easy to snipe, see above Bots aren't affected by darkness Bots don't drive vehicles, hopefully in the 'Source' engine they will Due to HL Engine Limitations Bots can see through func_illusionaries (e.g.

    curtains in cs_747, doors in cs_backalley) Bots don't cheat .

  • How do I play the next playlist?

    Planned for future Releases Refining Combat Behaviours and Weapon Choices Customisation of Personalities incorporated into a Clan-System Advanced Team Behaviour Vehicle support Elimination of most remaining Bugs and Limitations of the above list.

    The first idea of myPod raised when I got my first iPod in spring 2002.

    I was looking for a program to put my favorite songs to this nice piece of hardware.

  • How do I play the previous playlist?

    After I had a look on ephpod I decided that there was room for another tool :) ( Anyway ephpod is pretty good - feel free to have a look at it ).

    myPod is designed to manage your mp3 clips, create playlists and synchronize them with an iPod.

    myPod is implemented in Java, so its platform independent and should run at most platforms where you can get your iPod mounted.

  • How do I skip forward?

    Furthermore its an open source project which means nothing more or less as that you are strongly invited to use it for free and help to develop it by sending your comments, bug reports or feature requests.

    create, edit, load and store playlists . playlists defined by filters based on artist, genre and year .

    edit ID3 V1 as well as ID3 V2.3 tags of mp3 files . synchronize playlists with iPod .

  • How do I skip backward?

    transfer speed up to 6MB/s . reorganize mp3 files . looks nice =;) [see more screenshots].

    Since myPod is an open source project hosted atsourceforge, you can download it here.

    If you need help with myPod, have at first a look atthe F.A.Q.

  • How do I stop playback?

    and the user manual.If that doesn't answer your question, youcan post to the myPodproject forum, or send an email to the myPod developer team[which are at present me, myself and I].Developers might additionally have a look to the technicaljavadoc.

What prerequisites are needed to run myPod ?You need a Java Runtime version 1.4 or higher. To synchronize playlists with an iPod you need an iPod (!) mounted as filesystem.
