OK this is so obvious, so it's really not a tip, but in all these years silly me never used it while I only want to see if the bots act correctly at a certain point for a SP map or MH.
After all these years why I never thought to just crank slomo up higher
, I can now see what happens during each map edit, pertaining to watching bots. I set slomo to 16. I need to let them play without interference. But for an even better test I use one bot on novice, but don't have to wait. On this map MH I am making it would take a long time for one novice bot.
I could find the bad spots of the map pathing, or should I say problem areas, in record time. If you can make one bot go through the level without snags, speaking of MH right now. When you add a few more bots they rip through the map like nothing.
and I don't have to wait and wait for the bot to arrive at my test area, and not having to change things and mess up the map flow.
so I just type in slomo 16 , or whatever speed you need, I spent so many hours waiting for the bots to get to a problem point, now I can watch-em.
