I was just about to push the button to purchase this game when I decided to check out the forum for comments on it.
That's when I noticed several purchasers mentioning that many of these scenarios do not have single player capability.
BUT, there is no listing of which scenarios have AI or are human players only.
Has anyone posted a listing of which scenarios have AI? If enough of them do, I might go ahead and purchase this game.
The vast majority of scenarios are PO (programmed opponent) for either side. Arguably it is not Artificial Intelligent AI since they carry out the plans assigned by the designer, with certain logic (in many cases quite logical!).
It is usually mentioned in the Scenario Briefing ("Either side PO; PBEM" or something to that effect).
The exceptions are generally monster scenarios that run the whole course of the war. A programmers nightmare with shifting variables...
At one time there was a spreadsheet that listed scenarios that gave the period, size, complexity and PO capabilities. Perhaps one will be developed of IV.
