I don't know if anyone here plays Day of Defeat: More specifically, along with the "SturmBot" version 1.7 AI bots addon.

Anyhow, if so, here is a fix for SturmBot's "Stosstruppe" class (the Axis K43 rifle), as well as the "Scharfschütze" class (the Axis K98 sniper rifle). Directly from the included readme:
SturmBot v1.7 "Stosstruppe" and "Scharfschütze" Bot Class Fix
The Sturmbot v1.7 AI bot addon for Day of Defeat suffers from a problem that causes any bots that are of the Stosstruppe Axis team class (bots with a K43 rifle) to hardly ever attack.

I have previously hosted quite a few games were all of my buddies that were on the Axis team noticed this problem, saying "I've got a SturmBot here who has 0 kills and 20 deaths!"... but I simply chalked that up to "luck" (or lack thereof), and was glad that SturmBot wasn't on MY team LOL!

Recently I've performed a few tests on my own that confirm this problem with the "Stosstruppe" axis team class SturmBots. Any bots that are of this class (or have a K43 rifle for their weapon) will only occasionally use grenades, or occasionally attack with a few rifle head-butts or their pistols. But other than that, they will NEVER fire their K43 rifles.

Lastly, there is also a problem with ALL versions of SturmBot that prevents any Scharfschütze Axis team class bots (bots with a K98 sniper rifle) from spawning on any Axis Paratrooper maps.

The "cls_k98s" entry in the "Sturm_Bot.dll" file was inadvertently named "cls_sniper", and is directly responsible for this problem.

The hex-edited "Sturm_Bot.dll" file included in this archive fixes these two problems.

P.S. My message threads over in the Steam forums refering to the problems, and with a few screenshots showing how I created the "Stosstruppe" fix (hex-editing the "Sturm_Bot.dll" file) -> http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/s ... ?t=2956188 and http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/s ... ?t=2977615 .

(EDIT) Added a SECOND fix to the DLL :)

If the guns I am dod were like the ones in cs that game would be so much fun. But I just couldn't get used to the weird recoil.
