Re: Lower Popcap win conditions for AI/Comp stomp players

I am practicing/learning lua. So I did this for you just for fun : Let me know if it works and have fun! Yes it works ! Plus you inspired me to extract the SGA with Corsix's Mod Studio as I've dabbled in doing simple map fixes before for maps that crash when AI saved games are loaded ( http://compa...

Lower Popcap win conditions for AI/Comp stomp players

Hi. The performance of the AI has always been a long standing problem with Blitzkreig on larger maps due to BK having so many functions and addon's. It took me ages to work out that to get an acceptable performance I needed to choose "Win Condition: Annihilate with 150 Popcap" so that perf...

Re: [5.0.0] Enemy AI not aggressive and tanks stay in base area

This sometimes happens, but as far as I know it is a map-related problem. When you're making a map, you can put some sort of "markers" on the map which tells the AI where to go and what to do. If a map-maker doesn't do that, the AI may act this way. I am not sure how exactely it works bec...

Hi, I hope the devs can look at this as I have to play offline Skirmish. I can't play online as I need to be able to pause the game occasionally. This happened on "BK MOD TIP 2: Kurland Pocket (2)". I'll try another game with same army and difficulty settings to see if this effects other m...

Ah, so just to confirm I will be able to restore the symbols after a steam install by installing the historical addon over it ?

Not sure I can be much help with symbols. The resource point and VP's of course. Propogranda leaflet drop.

To follow up. I'm now getting the same problem with other sounds. For example the Stuka dive siren sound is MASSIVELY LOUD. I'm pretty sure I've got my sound settings in COH set properly. I wonder what could be happening is that some sounds are not actually "FX" sounds but "Voice"...

Re: Suggestions for AI behavior

I was comparing with AI in Battlefield 2 which is functional (AI can use most vehicles and assets) but very basic tactically as the AI just sends in suicide wave after suicide wave in order to capture a point. At least here (as noted above) the AI will retreat once unit power is below a certain perc...

Re: Suggestions for AI behavior

But when it comes to encroaching on the AI enemy base they don't seem to know what to do; they continue with trying to send everything out to capture resources points or even worse sit around waiting to be annihilated by waves of artillery ! It is true, basically AI is not a defender. It usually do...

Re: Suggestions for AI behavior

So, I don't know if AI coding goes this deep but it's too easy to destroy the AI base. I don't play much with human players but I assume advanced players take a little time to cover base defence, at least building a couple of slit tranches when there's no cover available. It's always difficult even ...
