Dukematch bots in DOSBOX
In the original DOS game you could practice Dukematch with computer bots. In the manual (which i got from gog.com) it had steps to setup a offline dukematch with bots. However, due to the original DOS programs not working for alot of people, making mods the only option. If anyone knows how to how to work with DOSBOX, I'll paste the steps below.

Multi-Play
You can play DukeMatch against one to seven computer controlled Dukes.
Start the game as follows. “DUKE3D /a /q# /v# /l# /m
/a: Tells computer to use the computer controlled Dukes
/q#: enter (1-7) in place of # for the number of Dukes
/v#: enter (1-4) in place of # for the mission number
/l#: enter the level number in place of #
/m: Turns monsters off
For example, to play 6 Dukes, mission 3, level 2: type:“DUKE3D /a /q6 /v3 /l2 /m”
NOTE: Type “DUKE3D ?” to see a complete list of the command line options.

If they haven't and if anyone actually happens to get bots to work, please paste how you did it with some details so people can get it working.

The DOSBox version remains untouched. Megaton itself will not be getting bots.

I know that the Megaton Version is not getting bots, whitch is a shame because multiplayer achievements based on stats are horrible. I am just wondering if it is possible to get bots working in the DOS version by editing the launch options.

Guy already saId to you, that DOS version is untouched. So it should be clear - yes, it can. Go on and try.

I would try, but I have no knowledge about making DOS games work.

you CAN get bots to Duke Nukem 3D but it will only work if you are playing Eduke32

May I ask why?

Lets be honest the only reason most of us want bots is to get the last three achievements, I've only managed to play one game so far. :(

For me it's not about the avhements, its about just being able to hop on and shoot some stuff in a non repetitive kind of way.
