Hi all

After a long break, looking to play scen 1 as allies against Japanese AI.

What is currently the best AI expereince? Patch 6? Patch 7 beta? Patch 7 beta scenarios? Mods?

I am looking at playing the campaign to completion, so stability/consistency is a huge consideration for me.

Thanks in advance

Always use the latest official patch. The AI is pretty much the same but a lot of little things are better. I don't believe the patches have made any changes to the AI scripts so the experience is the same. The Japanese AI does a pretty good job for about the first six months of the war if you are playing the Allies. The new betas are fine but you don't really need them.

I dunno. The lastest beta patch fixes a lot of erata issues that can drive you crazy. Andy has some improved AI scenarios posted. I like RA5 on AI with the latestbeta patch, just because I deliberatly did not look at all the changes made. Keeps me guessing as to what is "Still Out There". But for the 1st time you probably want to stay with stock, Scenario 1, and then the latest 'official ' patch. Updating to the latest Beta will improve your experience, but add things not easily foun in, say, the manual.

My advice is to stick with the latest 'official' patches.

To have a good experience with the AI, don't "fight" for every location. There are key places that if the AI doesn't get them it does very poorly. Some examples are Ambon, Rabaul, Rangoon, Palembang, the Celebes, Borneo. There are others but in the past if I was very aggressive and willing to sacrifice ships and men, the AI burped if I held those locations. By letting the AI have these and a few other historical locations allows you the player to have a more enjoyable and longer game.
