I have made my own compilation of ships from various creators, and made my personal dominon race, and everythings balanced and working, but there is one bug. The ai... everytime I start a game with dominon ai, I get about 10 mins into game then it crashes, just goes back to windows..... is there a tutorial for the ai for armada 2?:mad:
It sounds like the AI is attempting to build a ship that does not exist in your game or that the name of a ship that does exist has been spelt incorrectly.
Other possibilities are that you have missed a quotation in the build list or have asked for a ship that is dependant on a particular station to be built before that station.
good luck!! :)
i rechecked it like 30 times... but i will try again.. but i did not check to see if it was trying to build something that was dependant on something that was not yet built..
If it is not that, sometimes it helps to get a fresh set of eyes on it. It's easy to miss a mistake a numnber of times and when you do finally find it, you kick yourself for not seeing it sooner!! :D
for instant action, what aip files do the ai use? and for multiplay? i know next to nothing when it comes to ai:lol:
I'm not completely sure myself which aip's are required but if you go and download Westworlds Big Book of Modding there is a whole section devoted to modding the AI.(Along with many other useful tutorials) :D
yet another question: why do some files have 2 and some have 4, lines of numbers after the name of ship?:confused: i have westworlds book of modding, it didnt really have much to help// if i remember right, havent opened it for like a month lol
Page 117 of The Big Book of Modding tells us all about the third & fourth numbers in the AI. Suggest you open it up again :lol: !!
The AI tutorial starts on page 112 and goes through to 119 so there is a fair bit of info there, could be worth a re-read if you are still having probs.
Haven't read it myself yet, just skimmed through but will have to have a closer look before to long. :D
Another famous cause of a crash well into the game is a missing weapon file. The game doesn't have a problem until it builds the first ship that uses that weapon. Also make sure the weapon.spr file in the sprite folder is up to date. I know in my dominion mod I had to replace the weapons folder with theirs.
