Quake 3 was probably the last game I played a lot up until maybe 3 or 4 years ago, CTF fun :p Now my legit CD Key doesn't work, so I can't play it anymore :(

 

Anyway, this guy has a server and purposely left 16 AI bots to duke it out between each other, here's what happened:

Hahaha, I love the idea of bots reaching a level of intelligence where they realise the best thing to do to survive is not fight! :rofl:

And the fact that they ganged up on the guy that did want to fight...brilliant.

Someone already quoted the line from WarGames, so nothing for me to say here.

Oh but lookee here! I've been running a similar server for the past 10 years and each of my bots AI logs weigh a hefty 7GB. Ooh :D

WarGames is the first thing that poped into my mind when I started reading this.

They probably just reached their preset kill limit.

It must be a real AI how else did they talk back when you used the console ?

Um neural networks and (programmed) AI are two different things. I used to run a Q3 server too and you could set individual bots to be easy to kill or very hard to kill, and they did learn from prolonged activity.

Then explain why they went to kill the human?

Interesting read if there's any truth to it.

And you're kidding me right? Those just dummy files you got there?

First off windows didn't crash or the server didn't go down for 4 years... Ummm what.

I like the idea but is there any truth to this? And with quake 3s WAY low specs he could have captured a video easily so someone better make him demonstrate this or he could be full of crap and just another message board attention ######.

None of these things add up so I'm calling fake. I sure as hell want to see some smart AI tests though.
