Hello.

I tried to create a game with a friend of mine, playing vs AIs on the Pacific map. However, the AIs never seem to make a move. Why is this? Anybody have an explanation?


Thank you in advance!

Is that supposed to mean something, or just be a joke?

Do you have a linky to the game ?
Anyway, the AI isn't very smart, warlight is mainly a mutltiplayer game, made to team up against other players.

We ended all the games. But the problem isn't that the AI's are stupid. The problem is that they're not doing anything at all. Not picking territories, not committing their turns. Am I doing something wrong when I'm making these games, or is there something wrong with the servers?

If you are playing single player, the AI's computing are done on your PC. Thus it can take an awful lot of time with many AI's on a huge map. This depends on your computer (is it old/slow?). If this is the issue, try playing with fewer AI's on a smaller map (sorry).

P.S Try it even if you don't believe it is the issue, Even a new PC might take some time on Huge US. (3.1 k territories) with 40 AI

Lol, just relized the title says "Multiplayer game with AIs never ends"... *Facepalm*

Without a game link it is very hard for anyone to help you.

Well, this is the latest game we tried. (We tried mixing the settings and number of AI's several times) After like 2 days it started working!

it seems to be working now ?

PS i didn't know AI-control was done on the client's computer, it may be that a poke could make the AI work
(hack around a bit, maybe both human players need to be connected to the game and click refresh to trigger the AI-calculations, then both need to wait for the calculations to be done)

edit: i just noticed you have changed offensive & defensive kill-rates,
AI is not realy programmed to play with all kinds of weird settings(can't even handle most of the cards)

Wilmo,

I checked your game, and noticed that the "speed" (Under Boot menu, click the speed link) for bothe you and your friend for turn two was 2 days and 21h, meaning you took that amount of time before you commited orders.

This seems to be consistent with the time you say the AI was not working. Maybe you and your friend forgot to commit orders? Or that your internet connection went down in the critical moment? {NOTE, if you modified orders, the last time you modified is your speed}

Do you still have any games that the AI's are not taking turns in?
