See CoopHUD for this implemented in a HUD! This mod will be kept around as CoopHUD may likely break with every major update and this should be more resilient to updates.

For those simply wanting to know with certainty the bot counts before moving forward or troubleshooting how their local/server settings affect bot counts throughout the round here you go. By default this only displays when the bot count changes and is checked every second. For testing purposes it may be nice to simply stream the bot counts so bStream can be set and the frequency of the stream set by UpdateFrequency.

This hugely changes the game dynamics for Survival, where the queue of bot respawn delays is made visible and can determine when players should hunker down and when til try and get on point to stop bots from spawning.

Mutator=PrintCount

Default Game.ini settings are here. If these don't need to be changed then no need to add it to the Game.ini:

[/PrintCount/Mutators/PrintCount.PrintCount_C]
bStream=False
UpdateFrequency=1.0
PreNumMsg="Bot Count:"
PostNumMsg=""
bAdminOnly=False

For customization and coloring, use this with AdvancedChat on a server. Then use configuration like below to color the message:
PreNumMsg="<red>"
PostNumMsg="bots remaining</>"

Is there a way to only enable this mod in some game modes, like survival and maybe outpost? I would not want to use this for checkpoint maps, for example.

TayLord @taylord

You have full control of what mods/mutators run on a per map basis in your mapcycle. Just dont put it in your cmdline -mutator=... or else itll get applied indiscriminately to all maps. See the Map Vote Labels mod page for some examples. Mod.io doesnt like long strings.

Thanks for the explanation! Another question: Would it be possible for you to add functionality for only displaying the count to admins? I would like to use this mod to debug my bot settings, but I do not want to give all players this information.

Try my recent update. I added a bAdminOnly, which you can set to True and it might be what you're looking for. I can't test this locally. Let me know if theres any issues.

I have a bug.. the mod occasionally counts players, not bots.
Seems to have occurred since 1.11

TL
TayLord @taylord

Got it. This should be fixed in v1.2. Looks like the time to spawn bots is increased a bit in 1.11 causing this. New update will just go based off of Scenario name so this shouldn't be an issue.

thnx for the very quick response.

Update 1.1, works nicely, thnx for the quick update.
For those who like to play, with colours, this works
[/PrintCount/Mutators/PrintCount.PrintCount_C]
bStream=False
UpdateFrequency=1.0
PreNumMsg="<Green>"
PostNumMsg="</><Yellow> ...Bots Remaining</>"

Can the font size be changed for us older users running a server?

TayLord @taylord

Lol. Finally got around to implementing a HUD for this to make it brighter and more visible. See the CoopHUD mod.

TL
TayLord @taylord

I looked into this a bit and looks like it would require modifying the HUD, which gets updated every update and so this would need to be reworked constantly. Previous modders have done it and stopped supporting due to the upkeep. This should not get broken every update and so is supportable. I'd love to see an optional bot count built into the HUD with nice text like SoloWaves is also! Color support is all I can do for now.

Works OK on my Co-Op servers, would be nice if admins could edit the on screen message.. Bot Count, this would enable the colour to be changed, using Advanced Chat mod

TL
TayLord @taylord

I can definitely do that.
