I have been working with the Quake 3 source code for a few weeks now and am in the process of integrating a custom bot as part of my M.S. thesis. I am using a machine learning algorithm to allow the bot to improve over time; however, for testing purposes I would like to disable the graphics out and load up a bot vs. bot match which can play out at a faster speed.
Has anyone done this before or can anyone recommend somewhere to read? I know I have seen this done before, but I have not seen any code examples. I have also heard there may be some 3rd party utilities that will allow you to disable graphics arbitrarily on any application. As a note, I am working with this on Windows if that makes a difference.
