1.0 and 1.0.1 both appear to have the same name in the game interface which can cause confusion.
(The folders name for each version are different but their name ingame is the same)
I'll try to avoid the confusion for future versions.
Would it be of value to have the version number of your mod match the version number of FoGII? That way a player would know that the mod matches the current updated version. I know that in the description on the download page it mentions the correlation, but maybe this would make it more obvious.

I don't think tying the two together is a good idea. A major/minor update of my mod might not correspond to a major/minor update of the game (and vice versa). And as you say the description already mentions it.

Could this fabulous mod be "adapted" to P&S or SJ?

I don't know, if those games have the same scripting framework and engine someone could port some parts of it I guess.

Is it possible to set "Rise of AI" as the default module in the Custom Battles menu ? I often forget to switch the module before launching the battle :roll:

Looks like the new 1.1.8 patch broke this for me...I think it has something to do with the AutoDeploy function?

When you say it broke, what exactly happened?

Whenever I try to load the Rise of AI custom battles or campaign, the game gives me this script error:

Ah yes, additional parsing checks were added to the .EXE which detected this error in the old scripts. (Which is a pity as the error actually has no ill effect).

The script error has been corrected in v1.1.8.

We will need roguedjack to correct the issue in his mod and then we will upload the new version. I will email him.

I hope he does changes asap. My battle got interrupted because of this. But I can always start a TT-mod campaign while I'm waiting for the AI-mod to be updated.

Hi all,
I have been working on an update of Rise of AI for 1.2.5 and Legions Triumphant. It will be a global mod and has some new stuff for the AI. I should be able to release it very soon.

This sounds great. When call it a global mod, does that mean we can use all other mods with it such as the TT mod and even the default historic campaigns?

If mods use local scripts with the same name, it definitely won't work correctly with them.

Like all mods, it will be an "at your own risk" type of thing, we can't guarantee it will work properly with every mod or even with base game stuff.

It should (probably) work with the default campaigns. Most (but not all) of the Epic Battles use bespoke higher-level AI so it is very likely it won't work too well with them (although it might).

As I say, using it will be "at your own risk". It could potentially cause strange results with some modules.

I think there is a fair chance it will work OK with TT Mod and Silk Road, but we cannot make any guarantees.

Well that would cover pretty much all I'd want from the new version of the mod, looking forward to it!
