Technical question

Post  rschilla on Thu Oct 20, 2016 6:31 am

Not sure if this is a KS issue or not.

We started screwing around with Army Level games just for the hell of it and I noticed that all officers begin with Take Charge From AI in effect. Given the tendency of units to start wandering around on their own I was wondering if there was a way to implement that on other sized scenarios. I looked at the 'options' screens and didn't see anything obvious and also the sow:wl.ini file again with no obvious mechanism.

Can this be done with a corps sized game?

I think this is hard-coded. IIRC NSD took some flak from users about how hard it was to play army level games because many players endured a monster click-fest at the start trying to stop the AI doing its thing, so I think (not 100% sure) they switched off the AI for army level scenarios. I think corps and below the AI is enabled at the start.

In case I am wrong you might also ask this on the NSD forum where a dev can answer.

Even if we could enable this feature I do not think the KS team would want to as many of the MP games we play rely on the AI being active.

Thanks, again. I've been to NSD's forums. I'll see what they have to say.
