Chapter 1. Introduction

GameBots are a modification (mod) for the game Unreal Tournament 2004 (UT04). Their main purpose is to make rich environment of UT04 available for virtual agents development. GameBots provide network TCP/IP text protocol for getting information about environment and controlling in-game avatars. GameBots are programmed in UnrealScript scripting language – programming language that was created and used to program UT04 game mechanics (almost everything except the graphical engine). UnrealScipt resembles Java or C programming language.
