So as to the actual NPC characters I discussed at the start of this thread, there doesn't appear to be one for the SkaarjPlayer... which naturally, my great love of Skaarj being what it is, irks me.

Does anyone know of such a thing?

You can 'make' one yourself - just subclass the UnrealI.SkaarjPlayerBot and add in the code from any of the NPC characters

Code: Select all

Var() String MyName; 

Function PostBeginPlay() 
{ 
Super.PostBeginPlay(); 
PlayerReplicationInfo.PlayerName = MyName; 
}

Sure but that'd just be for a map, I'm talking one that has its own .u file so anyone can use it on any map... like those others are setup.

I don't know how to make a .u file. Do you?

That way they can be hosted on servers as skins?

It would be a bot (model) rather than a skin per se.

I expect you can but they can't be assigned to a team and so will be on the Gold Team.

No, this way they can be hosted on servers as extra players that're setup for specific maps.

I was thinking straight Deathmatch games, no teams.
