Current problems that need work

  • Saber fighting is still not quite right yet
  • Bots only randomly choose which force power to use at any one time
  • Bots do not avoid mines
  • Bots do not move to an intercept vector for target (for higher difficulty settings)
  • Sometimes they jump off the catwalk in Valley of the Jedi
  • Bots do not see the lightning trap in CO
  • Sometimes they just walk into walls
  • Appear not to block that many blaster shots
  • Sometimes JK will crash when lots of bots are in the game or when using the 'endgame' command
  • The botcam takes too long to switch back to the player
  • Create built-in Glowsabers for the players to use
  • Attempts to walk through force fields

  • The game will not end when a bot reaches the score limit, only when a human player reaches it
  • Score limit within 'Arena of Light and Dark' not working correctly
