    Default Idea

    Howe about bringing the aggressive AI back? I am now trying to figure it out what files and commands are responsible for AI in DK2. I want o copy AI from DK2 1.51 (best AI) to current version. I am not a programmer, so I will appreciate all help and suggestions.

    My plan is very simple. I want to open dk2 1.7 exe, find the code responsible for AI and replace it with the 1.51 version. Bingo. I suspect that some problems may occur with the Maiden or Elite creatures, but maidens are avoided easily through options, AI never builds rooms to get Elites, its too complicated for him and other things should be fine. Well, Hero portal maps should be avoided too I suppose.

    If you're planning on doing that, would you be able to look up how the DK2 master server works? Like what the exe is expecting as a reply. Me and Dotted had a look at it and the data doesn't seem to make much sense.

    Progress report:

    Good news. It looks like the initial AI sits not in the EXE file. Will doublecheck, but so far it looks like this. This is very good news, because exe editing is hell.

    Does the probbability exist of conflicting files if transferred? Or bad side effects?

    Ps: I really hope you will be succesfull.
