Thanks. I managed to get it working last night after I posted but it is still really good to have this script posted for everyone. A LAN server for the battleroom would be nice to help get these games going. LAN play has worked flawlessly so far for my friends, but I have to modify the scripts mysel...

Can someone upload a link to a script that say places 4 commanders on a map? I've got some LAN players but we dont use the battle room system and I don't want to spend forever trying to get the battle room to work just to get the script. I'd appreciate it!

I can sometimes host as DMZ, sometimes not. I always fail the connection test.

Both of you should calm down (its just a comercial...) An translating ideas into algorithms is not as hard as it sounds. You just have to use a bit of logical thinking, and make it in a way a computer would understand. you hardly even need to know how to program. then once you know what you want it...

Ideas are meaningless unless they can be translated into algorithms to be implemented. The second stage is far, far more difficult than the first, which is why I've tended to suggest ideas leaning toward the simple. If you want a super smart AI who understands the map you are going to either need to...

From both sides of the issue I can understand the problems, however, we want to remain closed source until it's complete, because otherwise someone is going to yell at us about it being buggy if they attempt to implement it before we finish. That's all there is to it. At least when it comes to mine...

I will not join a closed up project for Spring. If I contribute to Spring it will be in these forums this year, and next year I may take some tasks to code in the Summer. Spring is not mature enough to fork or split tasks into private entities, any of which could fall apart at any given time. Skille...

Perception is the whole problem, how to get the AI to percieve things. An AI can't "see" the map like we do, and this is the mistake people make when talking about a game AI, they say well let the AI see this, and such and such is easy. That's actually true, but getting the AI to see what is going o...

Tsumari hasnt read my threads either. You all fail tor ealise that the map can change now since the terrain is deformable! The AI will quickly find that the map it was programmed for is no longer the map it is playing on. btw, AI posts are a priority for me If you label a section of the map "chokep...

This is a mod thread more than a spring thread. Remember that spring is different from whatever mod it is running at the time.

I'm not sure if it would really make it less flexible, it's more like giving it a default to start from. For example, when I load up your map Flooded Desert if I play on the right of the map with an enemy on the left, I know I have a land based chokepoint near the center to defend, with the threat o...

My current thought is that strategic points on a map can be noted by a mapmaker, with a few catagories such as "defensible pass" "resource rich" etc. An AI dev could create functions to respond to these areas, eg "patrol pass with bombers" "build extra defenses in range of pass" or "raid resource ri...

I like the controls. I also have no problem with someone else playing with a left click interface, but unless the SY team already has a left click interface on their to-do, I wouldn't want them to add that work due to this thread. There are other more important things to spend their resources on. Ma...

Oh, sorry I forgot to add this. In regard to reproducing the bug, throw some people behind a linksys router with DMZ on. If that doesn't cause it, try putting another router between the linksys and the PC, set as a dhcp client. My best guess after the routers would be something about the nforce3 pla...

Commander death ends game takes away my favorite part of the game - the desparate commando op against an enemy who is winning to bring his production down, so you can level the field again =)

That said the option would be cool for commander death: end.
