Is there anyway to use this AI when playing a multiplayer game - let's say two human players against several computer players. I would like the computer players to use this AI, is it possible? Thanks, Lee

Hi mate. The only known way of doing it is by creating a scenario. You should come to the forums matey its a great place for questions like these :)

I think I'll rate my defensive AIs by how long they survive against this one from now on...

I downloaded and am about to playtest this AI. I would encourage you to create a non-cheating AI first then add the cheats later. I didn't see ANY rules for economy and gathering stuff except for the resource cheats. Making the AI powerful even before adding the cheats make your AI so much better.
I can review this if you want.
RubberMan didn't want me to review this so I'll comment on it instead.
This AI is very fast, and it almost plays a Death Match style game. If it finds you enough, it will attack you with about 20 man-at-arms when you're in the Dark Age. If you are lucky and the AI doesn't find you, then you may have a chance. However, this AI will often Imperial around the 18 minute mark. The success of this AI is obviously do to its massive amount of cheating, which insures that it has at least 1500 of each resource at a time.
Try it, but I think you may find that it is too difficult, though it's fun to watch it play against itself.

Rofl Leif. Yes it does cheat like a bitch but please bear in mind I wrote it back in 2000....
My son and I (Maniac his AI is called on here) used to just write cheating AIs in an hour and then play them against each other over the LAN.
Those were the days.....he was 9 then! Now hes 20 and unfortunately doesnt write any longer.

Okay, okay.. This looks fun, if not.. Promissing for code and ai comparison.. Maybe I will write a cheat AI sooner or later. Had one in mind that would love to at least see if I could get to work. Time to DL this bad boi and see what I can learn from it. Mwahaha! Er, yeah. Get that kid of yours playing again? Having a life is over-rated. >.
