Option to load a savegame and load Princess instead of TestBot?
#1
Hi

When loading savegames you have to use the /ReplacePlayer to get bots connected again, but its Testbot who aways join. Is it any way to get the Princess bot connected instead?

I'm asking because I've found that bot much more effective. It uses better tactics, moves even using Double-blind rules (although it takes its time), handle properly the use o optional rules (you can activate all the options and this enemy won't always go sprinting, nor using MASC sucidally).

Thanks in advance

If you read the help on the replacePlayer command it can already do either bot. It just defaults to TestBot.

/replacePlayer -bTonguerincess <playername>

Also, check /help replacePlayer

Didn't knew about that option. Thank you very much!

Hi

Another question about this. I've tried that command with savegames and I can properly load the Princess bot, but every time I use it, the system says that "Princess" has replaced some player. Does the game use different bots named that way for different players in the game, or is it the same bot getting in charge of more and more units each time I use /replacePlayer?

My concern belongs to the fact I use several bots to play games, usually two for each enemy lance, tied together in the same team, so this way each bot has fewer units to process and thus runs faster, and I'd like to keep it that way when loading savegames.

Thanks in advance

"Princess" is just the type of bot that is replacing said player.  Each time you use the 'replacePlayer' command, it creats a new bot instance, so it really is separate bots.
