OK so I've been following the top down UDK tutorial on 3DBuzz to try and get a bot up and running, in those videos 4 bots are added and each patrol back and forth between two points, however, in my game I want one bot to follow a set path once and not double back on itself. While following this tutorial I came to the part where the bot paths are set up in Kismet and each is given a destination and an origin point. In my game though, I've given my bot an origin and multiple destination points.
When I build everything and try out my level I don't even have a bot spawning (whereas in the tutorial video all the bots appear at this point) so I'm definitely doing something wrong.
Any help on this would be very much appreciated, I'm a beginner with UDK and I have a project due in on Friday!
Ok A for effort and I know dont quit my day job!, I made this video for the topic as you know more about it than some people might not so I include everything that you might already know.
Hope that helps.

CoolCool no problem,
How far away are each note? there is a Max Distance to worry about too.
Well I did originally have them quite a big distance apart, but I moved them to around the distance in your video to see if it was that, still the same result - bot not moving...
Is that Terrian or Static mesh ground?
How close to the ground are the notes? can you lower them almost all the way to the ground just to test.
Can you add a BSP ground under the notes just to test trying to eliminate thing with out you uploading you map files.
Thats all I can think of your setup looks perfect.
Ah! Moving all the notes right down to the ground worked! Thank you so much!
I am using a terrain that has slopes, will this cause me a problem later on if I wanna lead the path up a slope?
Again, thanks, you've really saved my bacon
Sweet, I think I remember that as long as the note is close to the ground it will walk up a slope its not the hieght of the note its the didstance the note is from the surrounding surfaces.
Awesome, thanks again for all your help!
Do you still have those vids? When I looked at the links and it says they are no longer available.. from the sounds of it, your tutorials are exactly what I need for my project. I finally figured out how to get a bot in there and set it to attack, but now I need it to go from nod to nod...
Thanks in advance.
ohhh , the vidoes are not available anymore , and I kinda have the same problem,,, could anyone re upload them or tell what was originally in the video. Thanks
