Hi All, :cya: Im having difficulty changing the Instant Action from Teams to Allies. I've played enough games in team mode and realised there is a way to play allies in A1 but can't find it in A2.. any ideas? Im probably blind with the option in front of me but I just cant see it. Many Thanks to anyone who can help!

Its on the communications menu if I remember correctly (and I may not, its been about 5 years!) the comms menu is one of the drop down menus from the toolbar on the top right.

Yes, this would be correct once the game has been setup in alliances. I can't find a way from changing it from Teams to Aliances before I start the game

Oh, sorry.

Firstly, It's only available in multiplayer games (not skirmishes!). You goto select map, then select the game mode from the drop down list in the top left of the map select screen.

The AI never agrees to an alliance even in multiplayer, which I guess is why they didn't include it for skirmish.

Not that I'd want a stock AI as an ally...

I would! It'd buy me at most five minutes of building, mining and researching time if the enemy attacked it first. :lol:

:cool:

Hello: The only way I can get the AI to be my ally (and make AI teams to be allies between themselves) is to make them have the same team number. For example, I want to have an AI ally, and I am Team1, then that AI player must be Team1 as well. And it work quite nicely as the AI send ships to help protect you, it also sends convoys of cargo ships (as it is beneficial for both the human player and the AI). I hope this can help you:).

I miss the alliance function from A1 to A2

Not quite the same, with Alliances you could be neutral to a race without being their ally(or on the same team), however at any moment it could turn and they could become your enemy.

Also you could mix up "teams" . Example: You are Federation, your ally is Klingon. Your enemies are Borg and Romulan... however the Klingon are allies with the Romulans but enemies to the Borg. The Borg are allies to the Romulans but enemies to the Federation and Klingon. It made it interesting because if the Romulans were attacking you the Klingons would not help but if the Borg were attacking you...they would help.
