Hi. Anyone else having problems with AI games in BK Afrika mod ? The Axis AI can only build engineers. Something seems to have changed in the BK scripts since Afrika was last updated that broke something. I can only play as the Axis with Allied AI opposition as the, what seems to be a bug, does not effect them. If I play as Allies then AI Axis only sends engineers all over the map. They fail to build any base buildings.
AI Axis engineer not building first base building but off taking point ...
Late battle (Allies have reached Axis base). Lone engineer at his base. no other base buildings apart from the default one.
Possibly related. Games message stating required manpower for 88 does not match with advertised amount.
A full reinstall of everything as well as wiping as many left over files as possible fixed the problem. Now Axis do, eventually, start building base structures.
However there is a problems still remaining. I could swear the Axis used to very quickly built base structures and overwhelmed me with tanks. Maybe my game has improved and I'm just capturing sectors quicker ? Anyway, observing the Axis fellow AI shows they take AGES to build base structures. Far too long capturing sectors with engineers before they build. Sometimes they just about come back in time to become the lethal Axis we know so well. Other times they are so far behind that the Allies are quickly at their base and the game is over. So I don't know if something changed somewhere in BK/Afrika to cause this. The Americans do immediately build the barracks. Why don't the Axis ?
Temporary solution: Play with high resources and expert level. I suspect the weighting is wrong at normal resources and the Axis engineers decide to go and capture CP's. At high resources they start building base structures like there's no tommorow.
