Time for an update

Since it's been a while, heh. I've had quite a few free cycles recently to work on the script, and have been doing so. Unfortunately, there's just so much to do. =/ I haven't had a chance to finish rewriting certain parts, but script integration has been going fantastically. Though I haven't finished with a large part of the script (including the part where the heroes use their abilities, haha), I do have a basic 6.60b version of the map where the AI will behave as they did in previous versions, though without using many of their new abilities.

Come to think of it, that's not all that dissimilar from those old AI injection maps. Then again, what I'm doing isn't all that dissimilar from AI injection. Heh.

Anyway, still quite a ways to go before this is anywhere near finished, but if people really just want to play with 6.60b features against supremely stupid bots (except for the heroes that haven't changed since 6.59), I can probably put up an unfinished map sometime soon. I'd like to at least finish rewriting the levelling system and possibly rethinking the item purchasing system I currently have in place, but we'll see.

I have seen the OMG map floating around and know that some people have been asking for its addition. In reality, it's probably not all that difficult...I took a look, and mechanic used to assign abilties is an adaptation of the mechanism I created for Formless, so it should be pretty easy to modify my functions to make it work for a hypothetical OMG mode. Realistically though this is pretty low on my list of things to do at the moment.

Anyway, that's that. Haven't updated the counter in a while, I have some 60+ new messages in my inbox that are variants of the same question that I'll eventually have to sort through.

Hey BMP,

Let me know if you're interested in having some help with this project. I would easily ditch what I'm working on now with AI+ to help you with this.

acegikno1 said...

Sounds like you're making some decent progress. I hope you keep up the good work and don't bother yourself with all the "omg wen is new map released" emails. :D

Arky said...

We shall wait patiently for you update... :)

Hank said...

Oh, neat! It's always nice to get some work done.

Great to hear this update!

Will wait for your release. Keep it up!

Ian said...

Take your time. I appreciate what you are doing so much!! I am glad you are deciding to take a long time in order to make some serious AI updates. Next school year: your AI map = my life. I know it's kind of sad, but I am not ashamed of it. I am so excited for its release. Yet patient =D. Good luck, I hope you have fun coding (although I hear SASS is a bitch).

Erik said...

Killerbee123 has one up that different from urs. Speak with him ur both on the right track.

Igi said...

There's just so much to worry about the world right now that some people find playing dota as their only way out of their hectic lives.

So the only thing i can say about what you're doing is 'keep it up'

Imagine a world where everyone's playing dota, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Carbon emissions will surely be cut down by 60-75%.

Николай Григорьев said...

Yep, imagine the world with dota all-around... There won`t be real sex at all... And if you want it, you shoud just pick rexar, partner of yours picks chen and you both go to the jungles...
Keep it up, BMP! =)

Teng Hock said...

hey can u send me the unfinished post? i wanna try some builds for the new heroes. thanks in advance and sorry for the impatience

Teng Hock said...

oh and of coz i forgot... mail it to tenghock7@gmail.com thanks.. i'll somehow contribute if u need some logic for the bots.. A programmer here just no ideas on Ai would be glad to help if given the foundation :)

override182 said...

dude.. can i ask u sumthin.. do u need to "rescript" after 1.24 patch? does it effects ur work or it has nothing to do with ur codings.. thanks.. just a piece of mind.. worried bout u btw :P .. all the best bmp!

IcY said...

hi, since u already have a basic 6.60 ai wif the old scripts, would it be too troublesome for u to make it available for us?

Erfan said...

Does new AI map work by 1.42 patch?

Co2Noss said...

No the map does not work. Tis a shame too. Hopefully BMP will be able to fix this in 6.61 :)

lester said...

try to fix some prob for AI before release this map.. like command (-ne,-ng) and for (-ar) because usually its become All Pick default..

thnx and will wait for your gud map..
