Moved host! If you visited over the last month you may have seen the site disappear or strange issues... I had to move all my sites to a new Web Host a place on the internets that these website things work, all that means is... sturmbot.org will continue to be here for you.
For you webmasters new host is A2 Hosting, I highly recommend it. Price, speed, service, choice of server location around the world, better control, their ticket system is the best service I have ever used.
Old host was Bluehost... lets just say this, Bluehost = self harm. It was like having bots that keep shooting you in the head... but they are on your team.
Site clean up.
Sorry to any user that had a membership account deleted... the spammers created thousands of accounts and hundreds of spam articles in the past 3 weeks. More security has been added and the forum cleaned up.
"New Discovery: Auto-generating SturmBot Waypoints!" Link to article... Day of Defeat Steam Forums by RichNagel
This may interest some of the more adventurous users of SturmBot who like to waypoint. Basically the bot program has it roots in HPB bot, Rich describes an interesting hidden feature for auto waypoints.
NOTE: I have copied the steam forum post and it is also on this site with a download mirror of the tools he mentioned.
Quite a jump in news updates, but thats how this topic is, SturmBot's day was a long time ago and changes are very rare indeed. But, we have movement!
Newsflash: "Day of Defeat Beta 1.3 dedicated server working over WON2 with Sturmbot and clients!"

The comments function has been disabled, thanks for those that commented, sorry... it had to go because this time Chinese and Indonesian spammers found a way around the spam filter.
Have not played dod for a while? It is fun even with Bots. Maybe you have forgotten how great dod is ...
Upgrade: The site and forums went through an upgrade, this is a normal security process, if you see something wrong let me know here or post in the forums.
Faster web site? We will see! In the new year, or just after 27th Dec 2013 I am also moving my Hosting to faster servers, dodbits and this site speed should improve a little.
dod Mapping downloads: I see two more long standing dod mapping download sites are gone!
More downloads here? OK.... so they are dropping off here and there. Don't worry I will not drop out. At this time of year I upgrade some of my smaller websites.Time to step up and make sure you have a place to download maps and other custom files for that matter. I will poke around and see what is on my hard disks at home here.

11 Aug 2013: I have updated a couple of things today, an install guide for windows. Based on Johan's older pre steam guide with my up to date edits.
StrumBot loader 1.2 by E.Rommel added to the downloads here.
Added more download files, each one has a slight pain attached, I need to fix files and file addresses, some downloads are very old and need a little fix. Adding downloads will require that I test each download, so it may take a while...
- Updated Skin pack for a British to total Australian conversion, all aspects, check it out here.
- All the older pre steam Strumbot versions for dod 3.1 beata and below. See them here.
- Added a 22 map pack of the best custom maps, these have been checked and even fixed if missing files were found, made for the new SteamPipe system! Get the map pack here.
