Welcome to Marine Bot homepage
a bot for Firearms mod


Genaral info

Marine Bot is a bot designed for Firearms a Half-life 1 multiplayer mod. Actually for the latest Firearms versions 2.9 and 3.0, but also works with versions 2.4-2.8. Marine Bot works with both Steam and WON (also WON 2) systems. There are no special system requirements. If your PC is capable of running Half-Life then you will be able to run Marine Bot. However the better PC you have the smoother the game will be. You know the bot needs some CPU time in order to work the way we want. So expect a slight FPS drop with every bot you add into the game.

The Marine Bot team

Actually there is no team at all. Since version 0.92b it is just me Frank McNeil (contact) who does the work.
And Marine Bot Linux versions have been put together by RoboCop [APG] Clan Leader.
