Better IA patch
« on: April 09, 2019, 05:36:56 PM »
Hi my friends!

I love to play warcraft 2 with my brother, but the IA is very bad =(

Sometimes it stops building or attacking us.

Is there a patch that fixes the AI game?

I am playing the GOG version!

Thks

Hi, AdrianoGolob!
Welcome here!

AI in war2 cannot control units if they become clinched between obstacles or between each others (the main problem is peons clinched near the gold mine). Then computer just stops and do nothing.
That can not be fixed, only bypassed: try to play maps with open spaces between gold and TH. Try to edit the map, to deny building near gold (to prevent comp to build farms or w/e between gold and TH, that is also possible).
If you download war2combat, you can install it with "violent AI" component instead of campaign (deselected by default, you should select it manually while installing), then you will see AIE subfolder in maps folder. These maps are fixed a little bit to bypass some stupid ai behavior like opportunity of building between gold mine and TH.
Also these maps use much more effective AI than the default one when you use maps from subfolder AIE. Big job have been made in AIE for those who want to play vs computer players.

Do you mean improved AI for campaign? Would be interesting to share it somewhere, maybe to add it into combat as installing option?

Sure, np to test, but combat is exactly the same untouched combat version in part related to gameplay.
If you are talking about AI, that means your changed the ai.bin file only, right?
It's important to have common ai slots untouched (to let people with different ai.bin files play together against the ai on custom maps).

I see, so looks like 1 more option needed:
- violent comps,
- original campaings,
- improved campaigns
or something like that...

wow, war2 campaigns, UltraViolence mode? (As in Doom)
7 enemies instead of 4 in 1-st mission? More enemies in every other mission? I like that!

I hope, you know what you do and these missions are possible to win...

Are all other files required for your campaign? Art\bgs\Forest\forest.ppl , Art\Unit\* , font\font.clh?
Looks like they are different from original

I forgot there will be change black to light blue you can delete them, and try play first human DP, check icon alleria there should be black not  lightblue

I passed them, ppl need to use online strategy like block with buldings, rep towers while enemy hit, playing mass, its possible, I won  with fastest speed

Combat updated to 4.4.4:
    - UltraViolent campaign added

Please, check it, if everything is ok.
Also, not sure if my description in installer is ok, it's up to you to fix it.
