Re: Den of Thieves (new MP stealth campaign system)

Okay, so here are the answers to your questions. Can I clarify the situation? Of course! It's always good when somebody tries to understand what the AI actually does, rather than treating it as a black box. So, the Spearman in demario's example (which is no longer controlled by the 'patroller' micro...

Re: Den of Thieves (new MP stealth campaign system)

Hey Bob. I'm going to reply to your questions later. I want to look at the two saves again and test a couple things first, just to be sure. As for your desired behavior, if I understand you correctly that should actually be relatively simple to accomplish, I think, and without any work arounds. You ...

Re: Den of Thieves (new MP stealth campaign system)

I hope Bob_the_Mighty will not mind my hijacking his thread but there is another run that I have trouble to understand. I cannot speak for Bob_the_Mighty, but my interpretation of his previous post is that both the former and this case (as you will see below) is not the behavior he desired. So it's...

Re: Den of Thieves (new MP stealth campaign system)

- The situation with the patroller is weird. Patrollers are set to walk their route unless there is a visible enemy within five hexes in which case they will move towards them. However, in your savegame the situation is unusual: there is a visible enemy within 5 hexes, so the patroller is released ...

Re: Help with WML for a particular scenario

Well, that's very much a non-trivial problem (and not exactly what I imagined you were trying to do). If you think about how you would play the AI side as a human player, it involves decisions which units should attack in order to open a gap vs. which should press forward toward the goal vs. potenti...

Re: Help with WML for a particular scenario

You still haven't given quite enough information for us to know exactly how best to advice you. However, the Goto Micro AI is quite versatile and can probably be set up for this purpose. You might want to check that out.

Re: guardians test micro_ai

Hmm. controller= used to default to 'ai', that's why it is not set for the side. I do not recall when that was changed, but it appears that nobody has tried out the this test scenario since that happened. :P So yeah, we need to fix that. In the meantime, yes, droiding side 2 should do the trick for ...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.15

Hi sergey! Thank you very much for all the replays and the comments, and sorry for the slow reply. I'm not around a whiole lot at the moment. One of the common aspects of your (and also singalen's) comments is something I have been fighting with essentially forever: Fred not using units coherently. ...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.15

singalen: thank you for playing and posting all those replays! I'll have to work through them more carefully than I have time for right now, so just a few comments for now: As we discussed off-forum, the first replay is against the ExpAI, not Fred. So that's essentially the default AI (with a few im...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.15

Hi name: thank you for the kind words and for posting yet another replay! I watched it and I am not disappointed. Fred still seems a bit overly aggressive at times and makes some mistakes that would be bad for a human player. But they're all things that I am aware of and can live with for now. I am ...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.15

I just released AI-demos / Fred v0.14.15 on the Wesnoth 1.14 add-ons server . This release features a number of smaller but nevertheless important improvements. Most significantly, side 2 is now dealt with equivalently to side 1 when it comes to time of day considerations. Previously in Fred vs. Fr...

Re: Help with testing Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14

Hi mattsc! Great to see this coming along. I will definitely try out the newest version, and correct me if I misunderstood but it can now play any default faction (not only Northerners)? That's great, thanks. And you understood correctly, Fred can now play any default faction on either side 1 or 2,...

Re: Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14 now available

Just a couple more quick replies: It would be interesting to know whether you (singular and/or plural you) think that there's a difference between him playing side 1 or 2, but it's up to you really. My hope is that, if I can manage to (slowly) improve Fred, I will get more feedback in time which wil...

Re: Fred - Freelands MP Custom AI v0.14.14 now available

Long replays may be the best compliment Fred could receive... it really did take that long to beat him and there were times I wondered if maybe there was no hope against this machine menace! Let me know if you would like to see replays where he has less gold advantage to shorten the game length. Ye...

Re: Children of the Dust [SP campaign for BfW1.14]

The AI error still occurs (which is probably expected). I'm using 1.14.5 at the moment. (I believe that is the latest Ubuntu version; I'm not sure that 1.14.11 is available for that system.) Yeah, this was fixed in this commit , which is first present in 1.14.6. If you want, you can just find this ...
