## Battlefield 2: more than 16 bots in single player mode

I recently bought a copy of Battlefield 2. My brother felt that the free War Rock game isn't good enough for him, I guess. He persuaded me to get a copy of Battlefield 2. After looking for the game at Best Buy, Circity City, and several other consumer electronics stores, I finally find a copy at the local Target store while looking for a car maintenance part. How ironic?

Anyway, to get myself up to speed, I have been playing Battlefield 2 in single player mode. However, in single player mode, you can only use the smallest map with 15 bots. It was kinda fun for a while, but I wanted to try bigger battles.

While browsing through the Battlefield 2 installation directory, I realized many Battlefield 2 modules are written in Python and a simple scripting language. After a while, I finally found the "AIDefault.ai" file in the "C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\AI" directory. Files with ".ai" extension are basically script files in text format. You can easily open them by dragging them to an open Notepad window.

The "AIDefault.ai" file actually teaches you how to change it so that you can have more than 15 bots in single player. I found that the "AIDefault.ai" file defaults to the following settings:

aiSettings.setMaxNBots 16aiSettings.maxBotsIncludeHumans 1

First line sets the maximum number of bots. The second line determines whether the maximum number include the single player (I believe this is a boolean value). To change the maximum number of bots, you have to use the following statements:

aiSettings.overrideMenuSettings 1aiSettings.setMaxNBots 64aiSettings.maxBotsIncludeHumans 0

You have to add the first line. And the maximum bots include humans must be 0. Therefore, if you would like even teams on both sides, set an odd number for maximum number of bots, such as 31 or 63.

You can get more bots in Battlefield 2: Special Forces in the same way. Except "AIDefault.ai" is located in the following directory: "C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\xpack\AI"

Great, I hope this works, like hell I do, see, we got bad internet, so I can't rely on multiplayer Battlefield to make maps bigger, and, etc. etc. Be great if this DID work!

You can do this by right clicking "EA Games"(located in C:\program files)and selecting properties

And is there any possibility to load bigger versions of maps in SP as you can while creating a LAN game? For instance "Strike at Karkand 32" instead of "Strike at Karkand 16".

@ Ronnel go to (D:\Battle Field2\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\python\game\gamemodes) and drag gpm_cq.py to notepad, then find this line
# setup ticket system
ticketsTeam1 = calcStartTickets(bf2.gameLogic.getDefaultTickets(1))
ticketsTeam2 = calcStartTickets(bf2.gameLogic.getDefaultTickets(2))

then change it to

# setup ticket system
ticketsTeam1 = calcStartTickets(300)
ticketsTeam2 = calcStartTickets(300)

close then save.. note that the amount the number you put in that line gives twice the ticket ratio in game.. hope it helped..

MAY THIS HELP. :)
Go to your battlefield 2 folder which should be C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2..
Once you have gone into this folder then proceed to the mods folder then to the bf2 folder, once in there open the AI folder and go to a file called "AIDefault.ai"
To Open a File using Notepad do the following. Right click on this file and go to "open with". Select "select program from list." a new window will open with a list of programs that you have on your computer. Click on Notepad and untick the box that says "Always use this selected program to open this file" Press Ok.

The file will open and it should have text in it looking exactly like what is shown below.
echo ****************************************…

Once done. It should look like the below text.

run AIPathFinding.ai
rem EOF

Now Save.
Dont forget to remove the red REM so you can enable the bots
And now you will have more than 16 bots and now the larger maps are playable in singleplayer. If you want say 64 bots. Where it says " rem aiSettings.setMaxNBots 32 " change the 32 to 64 or 128. It should work. Just make sure your system can handle it.

If my way doesn't work, you can try this 64 player mod. It was the easiest way.

I was making a big mistake fussing with the bots and I got this weird problem. Whenever I choose a mod and a map it gives me the wrong number of bots. For a 32 map sometimes will only show 16 players (with bots included) and in the others for 64-maps only show around 32 bots including myself as a player. How do I fix this? This is getting frustrating.

[Mapa Grande Tamanho 64+Bots]

Bem simple, muita gente aqui já deve saber... mas como estava procurando e vi muitas duvidas resolvi ajudar.

Primeiro de tudo !!!

vá até

HD:\...\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\AI

Faça um Backup do arquivo "AIDefault"

Nesse arquivo vão estar 2 arquivos "bf2modify" e "BFSP64_103"

1° se clica BFSP64_103 e aperta Accept e deixa o resto com o programa

ps. o objetivo dele é colocar os mapas de tamanho 64 multiplayer para versão singleplayer

2° se clica em bf2modify

Clica em "Open" e coloca

HD:\...\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\AI\AIDefault.ai

Seleciona a quantidade de Bots na barrinha superior
e seleciona o nível dos Bots embaixo

Depois clica em "Set Bots"

ps. Coloque um n° de bots suportaveis com sua máquina.

Agora é só diversão....

================================================== ==========
================================================== ==========

Deu Erro pra jogar online ???? você foi kikado qnd entro num servidor ???

Para isso:

pra jogar ONLINE vc terá q desistalar o "BFSP64_103"
e coloca o Backup do arquivo "AIDefault" no lugar certo

HD:\...\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\AI

Para desistalar o "BFSP64_103" é´só clicar em "restore"
ps. é um icone q aparece logo dps q vc istala

Pronto já pode jogar Online novamente

================================================== ==========
================================================== ==========

Detalhe, qnd vc acessar seu jogo... colocar singleplayer... nao vai notar diferença nenhuma... vai estar igual o nome do mapa... 16 os bots.. até a foto...

Bom jogo.

[Destravando Armas Para Modo Single Player]

Existe um modo de destravar as armas editando o jogo.

Abra o arquivo "unlocks.py" que se encontra em "Ea GamesBattlefield 2PythonBf2Stats".

Procure a linha 44 do arquivo que diz "defaultUnlocks = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]".

Aletere para "defaultUnlocks = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1]".

Agora as armas estarão destravadas. Na tela de seleção de armas haverá uma setinha indicando no canto de cada seleção de armas indicando que você pode mudar para a outra arma.

Obs:Abra o Arquivo em Bloco de Notas!

I want to play BF2 in SP on 64map size with 63 bots. I tried a LOT of mods even the one witch is linked above. I tried to change the AIDefault.ai but all it does is: SP is still only playable on 16map size but with 63 bots. The big 64maps are still not there.
With 63 bots on a 16map size my computer didn't crash, no problem at all, but I want to play on 64map. It seams like the problem was solved here because there where no other posts but please is there anyone who can help me.
