Custom A.I. no longer working after installing The Forgotten
Hey, I bought and installed The Forgotten expansion earlier today and now for some reason the custom A.I. that I have installed no longer work. When I start a new game an error appears as soon as the map loads saying something like "AI script error" "could not open file" and a couple of other things. The default A.I. works fine as usual. Please tell me this will be addressed, I've read some scary things about how custom A.I.s will no longer be supported? Any help and clarification on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It seems that this has happened to everyone who uses custom AI. Help!

Same here, even the default AI seems to be severely bugged in my game. Sometimes, they simply stay in Dark Age for hours without doing anything, sometimes they advance but don't create any units unless you send them your resources... When I play a game with 7 comps, at least 2 of them are bugged :/

Yeah same for me. The AI was "Forgotten"... ^_^

*Bump* Has anyone been able to figure out how to get custom A.I.s to work in The Forgotten? The A.I. I'm trying to use is IS_Machine. I tried reinstalling and verified the cache and all that, but I'm still recieving the same error.

still failing.. how to do this? I'm a fulltime developer, but don't feel like spending my friday night on it while the problem might be in the game itself!

LOGIC, all IA are made for the CONQUERORS CIV, with new civ you need to build up new IA, for exaple IA says: if civ are mongols then... so what happen when indians??, no code on actual IA for indians, so it crashes...

What you say makes sense, but I don't believe that's the case in this issue. I should really take a screenshot, but the game acts as though it can't even open the A.I. file period. The error itself says as much. I tried the A.I. with only classic civilizations and I also reverted back to The Conquerors on the main menu and tried it again and it failed both times.

This is a screenshot of what happens to me. I used random map in The Forgotten with classic civilizations only. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=198014624. *Edit* I should add that I only used 3 A.I. players. So I'm not sure why it says player 4 when there wasn't a player 4. Interestingly it does the same thing if you have say 5 players. Except the error will say player 6 and so on.

You are player one... the 3rd A.I. is indeed Player 4. I'm not sure how it's possible to not understand this system.

Player 1 (You)
Player 2 (A.I)
Player 3 (A.I)
Player 4 (A.I)

For those of you with the File Open Failed error, have you tried running the game as Admin?
dcasez Jan 16, 2014 @ 12:51pm 
Yeah, admin does not help.
ga_jenkins Jan 20, 2014 @ 8:52am 
Any update on this? I tried playing with the biggest map size possible and every time regardless of map type the AI will sit there and do nothing.
BarbarossaBlade Jan 20, 2014 @ 12:06pm 
Dcasez and Ga_jenkins - we've actually got two different issues being discussed here. If you're getting the Failed to Load error discussed in the OP, please let us know here, if it's AI not gathering resources/creating military/etc., please start another thread so we can track that separately.
