You can't just have the file lying around loose.  You either need to put the text into the main BOTINFO file in MM8BDM-v1a.pk3 (extremely ill advised) or put a "BOTINFO" (no extension) file with that exact text into a secondary PK3/ZIP/WAD file and load it manually by adding "-file yourfile.ext" to your shortcut.  Note: You can't load extra files via MM8BDM.exe unless you're hosting a server.  You have to use a custom Skulltag.exe shortcut, or even easier, some sort of Skulltag loader program.

It is in a BOTINFO lump, and, i thought you could include the bot with your skin and it still worked...

As far as I can tell, no.  I've tried including a BOTINFO lump with my Met skin, but it didn't add the Met to the game.  I believe this is because files in the Skins directory are only searched for "SKININFO" lumps and the referred sprites, not "BOTINFO" lumps.  This is a Skulltag limitation and/or a method of preventing people from cheating, most likely.

I've gone ahead and expanded on my "custom content" explanation a bit.  Hopefully, it's more informative now.

I'm sure you're not the only person that wishes loading custom content that isn't skins were easier, but what'cha gonna do?  Short of creating this massive shortcut or Batch file, I mean...  XD

aaaaaaa so many people want to make custom content already! I must have done something right  ;)

New launcher will have an "add file" button for each launching mode (singleplayer/connect/host)

I've attempted at creating a bot with a custom skin myself, but when I type it in the console, it says that it's an invalid bot.

I added a bot, but I edited the MM8BDM.pk3... it doesn't mess with multiplayer gameplay any.
