Updated! This update packs a couple additions that some people might like a lot.

Full changelog, since there are only 3 changes:
-New option: Learn map from player. When enabled, the TDBots will resort to
learning the map from the player's exploration of it if there's no loaded
waypoint file for the current map. Works in Zandronum as well!
(NOTE: Use Waypoints must be ON for this to work, and this only takes
effect in Deathmatch and competitive modes!)

-New option: Teleport cooldown time. This is the amount of time in seconds
before you can call a bot to your location again. Minimum delay is 5
seconds, and max is 120 seconds (4 minutes).

-Waypoints should REALLY be invisible now. Sorry, I don't know how I keep
messing this up!

Hey, if you have a mod you want to request a compatibility patch for, don't be afraid to ask! If you provide a link with your request, I'll definitely look into making a compatibility patch for your mod of choice.

Download in the first post, as always.

Updated! This update improves the map learning feature significantly.

Before I go into the changelog details, I want to point out that deathmatches with the TDBots in ZDoom are unsupported. Thanks to
the built-in ZCajun bot AI interfering with the TDBot AI, various unfixable bugs have arised in ZDoom only, which include extremely poor following
of waypoints, inability to fire consistently well at an opponent, the inaccuracy flag having the exact opposite effect and even more. These aren't
issues in Zandronum as the built-in AI can be easily disabled and thus there's no interference with the TDBot AI.

I'm not gonna take any bug reports for deathmatches in ZDoom for those reasons, as most bugs are outside of my reach to fix. If you can prove the
bug also happens in Zandronum, I'll gladly listen to your bug report. And I'll also try to provide some support for cooperative gameplay in ZDoom, because
at least that is worth fixing (i.e ZDoom provides a bit better experience in co-op than what Zandronum does).

With that out of the way, most of the changelog is as follows:
-Added a compatibility patch for Armageddon Invasion, this patch was made by
proerd888 at TSPG a while ago, but I did not find out until recently when I was
digging around in TSPG. Anyways, thanks to proerd888 for this.

-Bot learning is better now, they will begin to use an incomplete version of
the info 30 seconds into the match, and will update their knowledge when at 1
minute, update again at 1 minute 30 seconds, and one last time at 2 minutes.
This improves their ability to learn larger maps and also makes them learn
noticeably faster.

-"Use Waypoints" no longer needs to be enabled for "learn the map from player".

-Removed the option for accurate waypoint following. It's always activated
now as performance difference is negligible
, and some people that didn't
change the option would get a very bad first impression otherwise.

-Cleaned up the first post, now there's less overwhelming stuff, usage guide has
been shortened to only what's necessary, added a bit of a guide for installation in Delta-Touch,
and there's ever so slightly less links scattered around and instead put into a better spoiler tag.

It should spread the plasma shots and other guns that shoots slow projectiles at high rates towards the player. Watch it become as good, if not better than zandronum bots at using plasma.

That might be a good idea for another flag, or I think this could be done already with BotForceInacc. I'll test and then release an update when it's done.

Updated! This is a very small one, it just makes the bots use the Doom's Plasma Rifle, Chex's Phasing Zorcher, Heretic's Skull Rod slightly more intelligently.

Updated! This is mostly a bugfix update.

Full changelog as follows:
-Map learning now works on all competitive gamemodes, instead of only Deathmatch (This was always the intention, but I messed up on a line of code).

-Fixed nodelist info being displayed multiple times in certain cases.
