Hello, first up sorry if this post is in the wrong place, I couldn't find a place where I felt this had to be in.

So I'll get to the point, I just downloaded BK 2 and it plays very well, the thing I'm Confused about is the Skirmish AI, is it in 3.01 ? I searched the web, and I found some 3rd party AI for the game, but then comments below it say it don't work, and most of the forum post here date back to 2003, so I'm not sure whats happen so far about AI so if any help out there could find me, be a pleased panda.

Thanks

3.1 has functioning AI.

However it isn't very good. I can defeat a map full of German AI allied together. Not easily but eventually, that shouldn't be possible. The Allies arne't much better. Only the Soviet AI is good, two hard soviet AIs will defeat me after about 2 hours of fighting and only kill 1 of my units for every 4 they lose. The Soviets even occasionally use aircraft, something the other two sides don't do.

Out of interest, where did you get this third party AI? I'm bored of the defealt crappy AI.

EDIT: Having done some reading, poor AI is apparently the fault of the maps in this game. I haven't played all of the maps and maybe some are better than others. A map can be optimized by following these steps:

I dont know bout the third party just heard it floating around this forums somewhere when looking up about Ai, didt get any good replys from it so guess just avoid it.. another thing abit annoying is if your tanks are idle and a enemy shoots at ti.. your tank just sits there and gets shot.. you have to kinda find them and tell them too attack =<

Hi,

Yes we know the ai is poor. The old blitzmaps will be replaced largely in the new patch. But the ai won't be much better. It's not very compatible with large maps or blitz tactics. However, a number of singleplayer maps and coop maps will have pre-programmed ai's that will kick your ass. Don't worry :).

My main gripe is I belive the skirmish AI is currentely incapable of using the air units whatsoever unlessly its a heavily scripted mission.
