Herbie     28.2.200 18:02 hi

Fly        28.2.200 18:03 hey

Herbie     28.2.200 18:04 just downloaded your latest version of DoomBot
                               I hope it will works as I suppose :)
                               

Herbie     28.2.200 19:35 can we play Doom through internet some day?
                               

Fly        28.2.200 19:37 no :-( It's too laggy to play doom on the
                               Internet

Herbie     28.2.200 19:40 I havent tryed so I dont know?
                               you mean if you play through Kahn???
                               

Fly        28.2.200 19:40 you can play legacy or zdoom without kali or kahn

Herbie     28.2.200 19:41 hmmm nice, how is that possible its so slow???
                               I think that it has to be very fast....

Fly        28.2.200 19:43 read this:

Herbie     28.2.200 19:43 ok
                               thanx

Herbie     28.2.200 19:45 hmmm I must try it to check out

Herbie     28.2.200 19:46 what is the program : zDoom Microsoft Developer
                               studio?????
                               seems like c++ :)

Fly        28.2.200 19:46 it's MS Visual C++

Herbie     28.2.200 19:48 I hate c++ ... coz I dont know any basics
                               I programm in Borland Delphi.

Herbie     28.2.200 19:49 must be hard work to make zdoom

Herbie     1.3.2000 17:29 hi

Herbie     5.3.2000 15:55 hi, I have just playd your Bot v4.0
                               I have some comments...
                               

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:06 hi

Fly        6.3.2000 16:06 hi :-)

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:07 I have just playd your Bot v4.0
                               I have some comments...

Fly        6.3.2000 16:07 what comments?

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:11 so I think that BOT is very good but can be
                               better :)
                               is there harder skill than 4?? coz this skill is
                               for me easy (I mean that I am always winner: the
                               score is around 50:10)
                               the BOT have some bugs : he`s camping (d2 map01)
                               at BFG room and doesnt go away and he has some
                               problems with using plasma
                               

Fly        6.3.2000 16:14 You can't change skill in v4.0. If it's too easy
                               for you, try to play on map18 (tntgrvnc.wad) with
                               nodes. Bots don't use nodes on map01 and they are
                               really stupid...

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:15 hmm cool I think its a good from you! I do
                               program too but in Borland Delphi :(
                               well can you make some patch for d2 map 01 (I
                               think this is the most played map)
                               

Fly        6.3.2000 16:17 no
                               the project is closed

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:18 so are not able to make map01.nod???
                               thats a pity for us!
                               and what are future plans from you for v5.0 :)
                               

Fly        6.3.2000 16:21 You can make nodes for map01 if you want.
                               I told you that the project was closed! I am not
                               going to make v5.0. I don't code bots any more

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:23 I saw! but dont you think it is bad choice...many
                               players use your program as well!! me too!
                               I like to play BOTs where there are no friends to
                               play with.
                               I think you have to continue...you are doing
                               great job! What a reason lead you to that opinion
                               to close the project?
                               btw. how to make that nodes?

Fly        6.3.2000 16:30 I'm coding client/server doom now...

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:31 GOOD! thats better speach!
                               well try to make it as fast as possible! I think
                               that DOOM still lives on the www network...

Fly        6.3.2000 16:32 doomnation.com/csdoom

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:34 cool I am going in....
                               how long do u think it will takes till your work
                               ends?

Fly        6.3.2000 16:36 I dunno
                               I think I'll release the first version in summer

Fly        6.3.2000 16:37 What connection do you have?

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:39 I go through modem 33.6 i think...I am at work
                               speed is around 2kb/s :(
                               but my boss has told me that he will make a new
                               connection through air :) speed around 3MB/s -
                               but this will take at least 1-2 month

Fly        6.3.2000 16:40 cool :-)
                               If you have a good connection, you can beta test
                               cl/sv doom if you wish

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:41 sure!!! I want!

Fly        6.3.2000 16:44 ok
                               tell me when you get a faster connection. 
                               2 kb/s is not enough for csDoom...

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:50 I will let you know as soon as possible :)
                               

Herbie     6.3.2000 16:51 btw, you didnt tell me why did you give up the
                               DoomBot project?
