Ok.. When i make a map in the editing thing, and i make my player and i make some others, how come when i play the map, they dont move and make their own buildings and stuff?? I playtest it and I can make buildings and everything, but when i go over to their (other players i made) area they're just standing there... On the bit on the toolbar where you pick your color and player name and all that, i pick Human for my player, and CPU for the others. I figured that was what you had to do to get the other players to just be computer controlled... But they aren't... Help please!!
You have to set an AI for the computer player. On that same window you were talking about there is a button on the right hand side that says "AI". Click this button select one of the AIs listed and click open. Now when you playtest the scenario the computer player should do basic things like gathering, etc
Thank you. But... Wht do i pick when i click the AI button. ? And i remember clicking AI and stuff came up... But then i clicked it yesterday and nothing happend. Omg im so thick, is it bcos i clicked Clear AI??? Nooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! :eek: :eek: :(
Yep. Clicking Clear AI will remove anything you selected. As for which of the AIs to select. It doesn't matter which one you pick. Just remember though that the default AIs are not particularly challenging. If you were after more of a challenge then you would be better off downloading an AI from either AOMFiles or AOMHeaven.
I have the same prob with the ai's they wont come up somtimes on my normal age of mythology and i have to restart it to make it work (the titans expansion cures that problem instantly) also get the new x editor 2.0 from ageofempires3.filefront.com(scroll down to find age of mythology downloads) that eliminated it in the normal AoM(not the expansion) hope this helps
Ah its all right i've got it now. But now that i've worked it out... Its pretty boring because when i make my allys and enimies and when i play the game.. I'll eventually attack the enemy... But my ally just sits there (Moving but not doing anything exciting)
Thats what its like on a random map game too... The only thing exciting is making your own map... O well thanks for your help :) Kirsty x
