My hard disk crashed in the new year and I lost my saves. Got an old one but it's 3-4 months game time old. Got so depressed I did not even install WitP AE on my new computer until today.

Enough of the sad tale of woe I need to start a new one against Japanese AI and it's been well over a year since I did start one. My question is what's currently the best scenario against Japanese AI. I've searched the forum having thought I'd seen it posted but my searches failed to find what I'm after. Help appreciated.

Andy Mac is currently working on improving the AI (scripts), its still in beta and its progres can be found here:

At the moment the number of scenarios it runs on is limited but still interesting for any solo player.

Scen100 by AndyMac is updated stock scen001, with updated, more historical AI.

I took dat files from this scenario and used them for DDB-C (DaBigBabes C) scen028 vs Japanese AI. Hoping for a more historical game and longer mileage from the AI.

Depends what you mean by "best". If you want a challenge the new Andy Mac scenario 100 or one of his Ironman scenarios is recommended. If you want something less lengthy but still challenging, try the Marianas or the 1000 mile war (Buccaneer?).
If you want really quick and fun, try Guadalcanal or Coral Sea. (minimal ground and air war, lots of naval stuff).

I installed RHS mod and from a quick scan of the RHS threads and it's docs it's almost seems a different game.  Just wading through the threads trying to work out all the starting nuances.

RHS is a greatly more detailed game. River warfare, ghost subs, lots of wrinkles. Look for El Cid Again or Big Red posting on the AAR board to get a flavour for all the things that go on in a turn.

EDIT: found the current thread:

Just in case I can't get RHS too work are there any other suggestions for a scenario against Japanese AI but not ironman, certainly not scen 104 it's really too ahistorical for me.

How does DBBA or DBBB play?
