Handicap and AI Bots Dune 2000

Post by jorkata »

Hi all! Im fresh here, i just played couple of games in Dune 2000 against AI Bots. I was truing to put Handicap option to 50%...cuz Bots are really hard...But after 20 min. of gameplay...I have send a scout to check his base. When i get there...no sings of movement, only his main base structure. Or AI Bots just don't like to be handicaped, and they just left the game in the beginning?

This is a known bug in the current release, which has been fixed already for the next.

The problem is that the handicap damage modifier is currently also applying to the initial damage when structures are not placed on concrete. At 50% this is enough to completely destroy the ai's structures, so it keeps on placing and losing wind traps until it runs out of money and stops.
