  • More Complete Archive Of All Quake 1 Bots

    Hi, I'm obsessively locating all the old Quake 1 bots (Quake C mods) and mirroring the mod files on GitHub here: https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/QuakeBotArchive

    I've also created a cool quake 1 bot genealogy mindmap:
    https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/Qu.../QuakeBots.png

    We're up to about 121 bots now, but the archive is not complete, and we need help.

    - Maybe you know a bot that is not listed?
    - Maybe you have a mod .zip that I cannot track down?
    - Maybe you know about an older version of a bot we can add to the list?

    I also have a wish list of broken URLs for bot mods, maybe you have one of these files:
    https://github.com/Jason2Brownlee/Qu...h/wishlist.txt

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm open to suggestions for great places to look. I've been digging through Usenet from 1996, through gaming magazine CDs on the internet archive, through old gaming news sites (blues news, etc.) from back in 1996 and so much more.

    I've also been trying to track down the bot authors themselves to see if they have backups of their old .zip files or source code to contribute to the archive. All email addresses from back then bounce.

    - Maybe you know one of the bot authors and can reach out?

    Thanks, Jason.

      I got a file for you!

      BRBOT - https://mega.nz/folder/cFR2BTSD#XjMQu42Qgk3L2xMI5iz-PQ

      ps.: looks like it's a variation of the Reaper Bot, customized for the brazilian players

          Very cool! Thank you so much! I'll process your files and add them to the archive.

          Are you able to point out the location of fbca101final.zip and midairbots.zip?

          I can't seem to find these files and there does not appear to be a search for mega.nz.

              TDBot is the bot for the brazilian mod Total Destruction II.

                  This is fantastic, thank you so much!

                  I'll download everything and update the archive.

                  UPDATE: I've added all of the bots to the archive. Thanks again!

                    I had to re-upload the contents of my whishlist folder, cause I'm stupid! :p

                    I was using a script to compare your whish list and my archive, but I didn't realize that the command line interface for everything, doesn't always return only exact matchs in the search results. So I end up adding some Sega Saturn files to that folder!

                        I would kill for a good archive of all the frogbot mods (FMODS), it seems they were wiped from the web when botepidemic went down.

                        It's a shame because it seems the most popular/preferred bot now.
