    The mod can either be loaded manually or automatically on each launch.
    Automatic loading is only for custom games and your own dedicated server if you have any. It won't affect the servers you join.
    If you plan on playing with the mod a lot or if you plan on playing with friends with this mod you should choose the automatic loading installation method.
    If you choose manual loading you will have to load the mod with a command every time you want to play it and you had closed your game before (or loaded another mod)

    Q: How do I use the mod?
    A: Open the Bot Warfare menu to configure and add bots.
    Alternatively you can type /bot 17 in the console to add bots.
    Replace 17 by the number of bots you want.

    Q: How do I rename bots? (manual loading)
    A: Make sure your game is closed and go in %localappdata%\Plutonium\storage\iw5\mods\bots
    Open z_svr_bots.iwd with an archive software like 7-Zip or WinRaR.
    Then open bots.txt, change the values and save once you're done. One line is one bot name.
