Re: Interested in a Civil War II Gold version?

The motivated people can band together and propose a 'community edition patch', because I believe you can do all what you mention by tweaking data. As for fixing bugs in the code, unless a third party game is initiated with the old engine, I don't see that happen... I'm now fully committed since alm...

From the Illwinter website, you can buy their latest games from GG, so you get an actual installer if this is what you are into.

Re: Any suggestion? All Ageod games crash when loading

This is an unofficial advice, from a player to a player. I used it successfully with Aurora, a nerdy 4X space game. The error I believe is because Windows 10 is forcing on the application the use of the dot for floating point operation, whereas in French we use the comma. So you can try in your sett...

Re: Civil War III

PBEM++ system allows players to post challenges which are then accepted by an opponent, then play games by grabbing their turn, playing, and uploading back to the server where it goes to their opponent's game list.

Although the range decreases by one each subphase until it fluctuates between 1 and 0, so you can fire several time with a high range.

Haha, and perhaps with a few more years and a combination of Moore's Law for CPU power and generic AI embedded in Windows (so you can disable the one in PON), the game will be blindingly fast!

Re: AI - biggest problem of Ageod games

No, there is nothing saved outside the saved game file, AI wise. You are mistaking with logs perhaps? Athena has a memory over 3 turns, but re-evaluate each turn in case the situation changes drastically. Now Athena has been developed over 10 years, so understanding one of its 'pseudo thought' proce...

Hopefully better on all accounts. The AI is making some very good moves already, while being much much faster. And beta has not even started, so there are a tons of improvements planned before release, thanks to the feedback of the testers :D

That would be a major task, but there is no technical obstacle to 'total convert' one of the AGEOD game into a Middle Earth one. I would suggest starting either with NGC or CW2? :dada:

The AI is different and done in a way which is more logical or understandable to me. I have great hope to improve it further than what could have been donne with Athena. We must find a nickname!

The new engine is definitively faster. Sometime, and you know that if you have been in the IT, you can't patch or upgrade anymore an old software. This is what is happening to AGE. It has aged... I have redone the AI for the new engine, taking aspirations from the old Athena AI and improving things ...
