Is there a way to get the comp opponent to do a strat?
I wanted to set up a game and practice countering orc towerrushes, so i set up an orc opponent to play with, but in-game, when i try to tell him to tower rush me, he says, I'll never obey you! How do i set it up so he always rushes me???

I guess the easiest way is to put the following trigger in the map:

EVENT
Whenever you want the tower rush to happen (e.g. ellapsed game time)

ACTION
Send orc_enemy the AI command (17, 0)

That will make him initiate a tower rush.

By itself the orc AI will not attempt a towerrush (it does not work that well most of the time).

Make sure you have AMAI version 1.0 installed.
Then I guess that 20 seconds is a bit short and might result in not having peons available at that point. Try to increase it to say 120 seconds to test it. Even then the towerrush tends to sometimes fail so try at least twice.

Hmmm, they, sorta tower-rushed, if thats what you would call it. They built 2 watch towers like at the choke-point of the closest expansion to my base :(

That is the reason why we did not make them use it as standard strategy. It works pretty bad right now. In fact they should build 4 towers per peon (8 in total) but they are so easily interrupted. The main problem is that we have no good possibility to get the time when the tower is finished.

Looks like AMAI 1.0 isn't quite final.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Patch 1.10 Coming

What a doozy.

Course if TFT has a grealy enhanced worldedit with all new jazzy JASS I'm sure everyone will understand if TFT AMAI development takes priority.

But its good Chaos players not upgrading will have new goodies to play with next week.

Don't worry, AMAI 1.1 release 1 is already done, just waiting for 1.10 :)

I'm happy to see AMAI 1.1 is doing better than ever, with new dirty tricks added :)

I'm hopeful you will tackle TFT's stock melee AI also, because its seemingly inherited RotC's shortcomings. Perhaps its outright broken. At any rate I don't imagine Blizzard's AI will ever incorporate stunts like critterport in a future patch.

1v1 is plenty aggressive but team AI, 2v2 and up, can become very confused. Quite often one AI teammember will stand around in its base, stockpiling resources and doing nothing. At times it can have a large surplus in gold and be starving for wood, and apparently oblivious to the shortage.

I set it to insane AI, it hoards 7000 gold 2500 wood and spends none of it while the other team bases and eventually its own base are all wiped out. It wasn't anywhere near 100 supply. Even if it were it could buy shop items, build towers, do anything but stand there. So much for the "defense captain" he needs to be demoted :)

Thanks for AMAI 1.1, very unpredictable!

A first version of AMAI for TFT is nearly finished and will probably be released in the evening.
To make it simple there will be both versions (for TFT and RoC) in the release and you can choose in the installer which one you'd like to install.
It will use the new units, heroes and upgrades of the races.
I have also started with the code to make it use the neutral heroes but that will probably not yet be finished for this version.

Yes I have seen that issue before, unfortunatly it has nothing to do with AMAI and is nothing we can solve :/ since we can only control what th computer build and use 'not' how they use it like micromanegement and such things, its a hardcoded problem Blizzard have to solve by patching the game.

I was playing a teammatch (2 vs 2 ) and my partner has not doing anything..He was in his base and when i ask him to change his strategy in version 1.5 Release 1 ,he does only nothing...
In the same way , when i asked him to create 2 towers, he had made nothing .

Have you ideas of what bug it could be ?The computer looks like to ignore orders and does not creep or attak ennemy .
