This started as an investigation into versions of Day of Defeat and what Sturnbot version is best. It is quite a tangled web but I think I have enough now to dumb it down to a simple table.

Consider this page work in progress August 2019

 Day of Defeat major Versions The best Sturmbot windows version  The best Sturmbot Linux version 

Day of Defeat Ver 1.3 (latest)

Sturmbot 1.7b 11b. Best way is use my installer 

manual install file is also available. 

 Linux Version 1.6

Day of Defeat 3.1 Beta  Sturmbot version 1.5.1  Linux version 1.5 (sorry no download)
Day of Defeat 2.0 to 3.0 Beta Sturmbot version 1.4 Linux Version 1.4
Day of Defeat 1.3 Beta Sturmbot version 1.1 None
Day of Defeat 1.2 Beta Sturmbot version 0.8 None
Day of Defeat 1.1 and 1.0 Beta Sturmbot version 0.8  or try Sturmbot version 0.5  None

 Disclaimer: I have tried some versions below dod 3.1 Beta, going by documentation and what I remember these are the best match.

The current version is Sturmbot 1.7b 11b, along with version 1.6 those two can be used for the latest steam version.

Below is what I found going through the actual file dates and readme files of the Sturmbot versions.

By the way those looking for a source code download... better read this first, the only code kept is too old.

 

If you see mistakes here or have some rare files I would love to hear from you contact me.

 I will try and tidy this page up but here is a table with snippets of info' I found in the files.

 

If anyone has sturmbot version 1.5 Linux please contact me!

Steam versions for single player

DoD Version Sturmbot Version Video

dod 1.3 Steam (latest steam version) 

Version 1.3  Released 30 June 2004

SteamPipe update - 30 Mar 2013

Best Sturmbot version 1.7

Sturmbot 1.7b 11b. Best way is use my installer 

manual install file is also available. 

Sturmbot version 17b 11b has a .dll date of 23 July 2004

The readme does not have a version listed, its because it was never 

finished I would say. Jowo gave that file out to a lead tester and it 

was released.

There is a file made by Rich Nagel.

It is actually V1.7 but named as V1.9

it is regarded as the best updated .dll file. Read why here. and

also here.

Other news.

Original SturmBot website is up 24 May 2004

URL was :www.sturmbot.1dod.com

Also version 1.6 should work but not recommended.

For Linux you may have no option.

 Day of Defeat 3.1 Beta

( Full Version Installer Here )

Released 8 Aug 2002

Best Sturmbot ver 1.5.1

Linux version 1.5

 

 Sturmbot version 1.5.1 

Release date 12 Dec 2002 in some packages.

It could be a ver 1.5. 

Version 1.5.1 has a .dll date 24 Nov 2002.

The readme says... Sturmbot 1.5 is a "bot" plugin for the Half-Life mod, Day of Defeat version 2.0 or greater

It is likely this version for windows and Linux is the best

version to use from day of defeat version 2.0 up to

Day of Defeat version 3.1 beta... some say this was the

best dod ever made. I tend to agree.

2 maps only...  dod_caen and dod_cherbourg.

The liblist.str file says its for...

Sturmbot "mod" not the dod "mod".

The very early days.

Various versions of early dod from

ver 1 to ver 1.2 also have a couple

of other bots.

Other bots.

No Sturmbot at this stage as far as I can tell.

They do work I am told with some effort.
