Bot Names

In short. I love them.
Me and a friend were playing, and wondered about the bot names. Here's what we came up with:

 Abe Ott            -  A bot 
 Al Thalon          -  Athlon
 Al Yurbais         -  All Your Base 
 An Nutherbott      -  Another Bot 
 Ann DRoid          -  Android 
 Ann Kryptid        -  Encrypted 
 Ann Tirnet         -  Internet 
 Ann Videa          -  NVidia 
 Anne Kee           -  Any Key

 Cyn Tagsera        -  Syntax Error 
 Dave Knull         -  /dev/null/
 Debby Anne         -  Debian

 Imen Yurpyci       -  I'm in your PC 
 Jen Tu             -  Gentoo 
 Justin Al Gritham  -  Just an Algorithm 
 Kat Fyve           -  Cat5 (the type of cable)
 Lal Katts          -  Lol Cats 
 Lynn Nicks         -  Linux 
 Mack Oessten       -  Mac OS 10 
 Mae Dofbits        -  Made of bits 
 Make Roesuft       -  Microsoft 
 May Marie Demp     -  Memory Dump 
 Moe Bandewithe     -  No bandwidth
 Moe Dem            -  Modem 
 Moe Sillah         -  Mozilla 
 Nat Rouder         -  NAT Router 
 Pat Ketlawse       -  Packet Loss
 Penn Tihum         -  Pentium 
 Ray DeHatt         -  Red Hat
 Ray Don            -  Radeon
 Saul E Tair        -  Solitaire
 Sigmund A Sinfalt  -  Segmentation Fault
 Sue Bruttene       -  Subroutine
 T Whitter          -  Twitter 
 Troy Jenn          -  Trojan
 U Arhakt           -  You are hacked 
 Vi Russ            -  Virus
 Winn Dosekpi       -  Windows XP 
 Yu Tewb            -  Youtube 

As you can tell, we are unsure about some of them, and there are more as well that we couldn't be bothered writing down.

@Scott: Please don't spoil the fun. Point out which ones are wrong, but don't give us the answers.... Oh, and great job with the creativity required for this.

@Everyone else: If you can get any we didn't (or have the names of other bots) please post them.

Re: Bot Names

They both seem right to me. (updated first post)

Be aware the first post contains only 50 of the bot names. Seeing as you can have a maximum of 255 bots, does this mean there are 255 names?

Re: Bot Names

Updated some of them. Not convinced by 'They('ve) Null'

Auto AI difficulty is great fun, I would love to know how this works. (Is there a finite limit to their 'skill' or do they use more processor to give them a better situational awareness/heuristic evaluation, and so their skill is limited by your system?). Very impressive regardless of how it's done.

Re: Bot Names

Guessed incorrectly:

Al Thalon
Anne Kee
Ciel Akkahn
General Proteksinfult - is this one getting cut off in game? :o
Sigmund A Sinfalt

And there are two names yet missing from that list (there are 55 in total, not 255; I'm not that creative).

I couldn't resist doing punny bot names. I had fun coming up with them. I'm glad you're enjoying guessing them.

Auto AI difficulty is great fun, I would love to know how this works. (Is there a finite limit to their 'skill' or do they use more processor to give them a better situational awareness/heuristic evaluation, and so their skill is limited by your system?). Very impressive regardless of how it's done.

There is a finite limit to their skill. Each bot has a skill value 0-1, which effects their aim accuracy, their dodge accuracy, their aggressiveness, their persistence, their reaction time, and what tactics they employ, and how much of a disruptive effect taking damage has on their performance (and maybe other parameters that I have forgotten). Their skill value is determined dynamically, from a max value that is either fixed (set skill level) or based on scores (in auto mode), and is then adjusted down based on their "fear" from being outnumbered, damaged, or under fire. They consume roughly the same CPU time regardless of skill. At lower skill there are some tactical functions which are skipped, but this accounts for a fairly small percentage of the AI routines.

Re: Bot Names

Al Thalon = ai Talon?

You can't tell lowercase l's from capital i's with this font.  So AI is in lowercase.
