    For many of us, that's exactly what we've been waiting for. TA tweaked for modern hardware and made HUGE and fun again :D

    RTS games should let AI take over when a player is dropped or leaves if he/she starts loosing.

    I'm curious, when is this game due to be released? And do we know the minimum system specs?

    Uhh, AI? What cracked and unsupported version of a multiplayer beta are you using? I don't think thats any kind of proof or conclusive reasoning to make - I've seen both cores on my X2 be used while playing the game normally.

    just because he has enabled the AI so he can play computer opponents doesnt make his results wrong. Although the AI is'nt officialy released and (from what i've heard) there are a lot of developer calls still in the AI for debugging output, so performance obviously cannot be compared with a final release.

    Anyway, he was just trying to extoll the virtues of the good multithreading support this game has. It looks like multiple cores will be needed for any type of high detail play anyway.

    I still play TA and I am very much looking forward to this game. Base shields :D

    Does anybody that has the beta know if you can run AIs in the multiplayer and if you can is it possible to run more than 1 AI player per human player? I usually play TA with a friend teamed up against AI players but we have to run a couple of extra computers so that we can get enough AI players to make it challenging.

    You can patch it to run the AI in multiplayer but the devs don't like it (it generates lots of false error reports). It isn't that polished and has an odd bug that causes a large amount of lag once it hits the unit limit. It works, but it's currently no substitute for playing against a human opponent.

    AFAIK, the devs plan to make a full set of editors available with good support for mods. There are already a few custom maps out, notably this 81x81km one. Buggy, but great fun :)

    He mean's Total Annihilation; the unofficial prequel to this.

    The game certainly looks impressive, and the worldwide zoom is certainly different. I really hope it lives up to the expectations of TA, which was and indeed still is such a colossal game. I think TA has to be one of the few games from that era that can still make my PC lag :eeek:, so im guessing its sequel is going to need some pretty beefy stuff to run it :sigh:

    No not really, since that implies micro management, but with even more units, which this is not, it's macro management.

    This isn't just TA with a pretty new face there have been some nice changes made, it does play similarly to TA, but sufficiently different.

    Did you ever try the Kohan Series? Warhammer? Ive been playihng RTS since TA and I thought Kohan and War hammer were better that SC or WCIII. ( for warhammer it doesnt get really good till Dark Crusade imo).. Im d/l the SC game as I am typing this. After running the demo a bit I decided to take the plunge.

    I hope that you are not using an illegal method of downloading.
