AI War Official 8.007-8.014 "Now With Moar" Released!

16. September

This one is the culmination of a couple of weeks of no-joke improvements to performance. Not only is the underlying timing for frames completely rewritten and improved, but the all-new sprite batching for our engine's render pipeline is now in place, too.

Just what does this mean to you, as a player? Well, even on fast machines there were previously some times where you'd get stuttering and slowness that wasn't warranted, based on heavy CPU load. That is now pretty much a thing of the past, and even really large battles run much faster. Additionally, really huge battles would previously tank pretty much everyone's graphics cards because it was just trying to render so darn much. Now it's incredibly efficient by comparison!

This is something that I've been wanting for a long time, so seeing how awesome the game runs now is really very satisfying.



Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have 4.000 or later. When you launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have 4.000 or later, you can download that here.

AI War Official 8.002-8.003 "Lock And Load " Released!

25. August

This one is our second post-8.0 update. It's another intentionally small one, as we're trying to wait and see if there are any serious things that crop up before going through other kinds of bugfixing or balancing.

In this particular case, some people experience slow loading times per image on their specific machine setup. This is apparently something to do with the WWW class in the unity engine, and strikes only some machines for the people that even experience (aka their high-powered desktop suffers from it, but their lesser laptop runs like a dream). In order to mitigate/remove the effect of this, there are some new options and default behaviors that help with loading concurrency. That way you don't wind up having to wait for things to load sequentially, all that time gets set next to itself. It's an unfortunate bug in the underlying unity engine, but this should really help to keep the problem to an absolute minimum impact for those few who are affected.

Update: 8.003 fixes a bug preventing the display of shots and explosions in the prior version, as well as making the max loading threads slider clearer and easier to use.

Enjoy!

"AI War durchbricht Genre-Regeln. Genau deswegen ist es unglaublich gut... dieses Ein-Mann-Projekt gehört zu einem der besten Strategiespiele dieses Jahres." - PC Gamer UK Review, November 2009

Über das Spiel

"You are outgunned. You are massively outnumbered. You must win." These are your orders.

Humanity has already fought its war against the machines -- and lost. AI death squads stand watch over every planet and every wormhole, the few remaining human settlements are held captive in orbiting bubbles, and the AIs have turned their attention outward, away from the galaxy, to alien threats or opportunities unknown.

This inattention is our only hope: a small resistance, too insignificant even to be noticed by the AI central command, has survived. These are the forces you will command. The AI subcommanders will fight you to the death when they see you -- but your glimmer of opportunity comes from quietly subduing those subcommanders without alerting central processing to the danger until it's too late.

You do have a few things going in your favor. Your ships are much faster. You have safe AI routines to automate defenses and mining outposts. You have production techniques that can churn out fully-outfitted unmanned fighters in seconds. There will never be more than a few thousand of your ships versus tens of thousands of theirs, but through careful strategy you must somehow reach and destroy the heavily-guarded AI cores.

Go forth into the galaxy, steal AI technology, recapture those planets you must in order to achieve your ends, and save what remains of humanity. But draw too much attention to yourself, and the full might of the AI overlords will come crashing down.

Großer Fehlkauf damals!
Ich finde es nicht schlecht, wenn man ein bisschen rum experimentieren muss um das Ziel des Spieles zu erreichen, doch in dem Game wird nicht einmal ein grobes Ziel angegeben.
Auch wird nicht reflektiert ob das was man getan hat halbwegs richtig war und irgendwas gebracht hat.
Wenn ich irgendetwas mache, dann möcht ich früher oder später auch eine Reaktion sehen, ein resultat ob das was ich getan habe gut oder schlecht war, dies fehlte mir vollkommen.
Ich weiß nicht ob ich das Game einfach nicht kapiert habe oder es einfach kein einziges Ziel besitzt, aber ich fand absolut keinen Spaß dranne weiterzuspielen.
Leider ein Fehlkauf meinerseits, weshalb ich euch allen da draußen den Kauf nur abraten kann.

A really very interesting game.

It's fun if you like the concept of looking around and making your decisions carefuly. You may like this game if you played FTL a lot on pause, and wish you had more to think about while you were doing so.

The game is very complex, very hard, and very tough to win. I personally go between liking the game and not liking it, but only because I'm never a big fan of losing.

Overall, i'd recommend this game to some people, but not to others.

AI War is a special game to me. To borrow a quote from Firefly:
"Live with a man 40 years. Share his house, his meals. Speak on every subject. Then tie him up, and hold him over the volcano's edge. And on that day, you will finally meet the man."
AI War lets you meet yourself. Some games you play until you can win, then you get bored. AI War is different. At difficulty 7 or below it's still challenging, easy to stumble on the long road to victory and not a sure thing. It'll take a while but you'll have a satisfying victory. But you won't stop there, once you can win the game then you'll feel free to turn up the heat. Walking through the labyrinth of options until, quite quickly, you find yourself standing on the volcano's edge, bound and tied by your own hands. But when you find yourself there it'll be with a smile on your face, saying quite happily: "Oh no! Oh no! Oh dear... I'm dead." And if you do manage to win at difficulty 10, it's a bug. Report it on the Arcen games forums... with pride.

Also, it has co-op multiplayer. So you can tie your friends up and hold them over the volcano's edge... though you'll probably both be a little singed. (Fighting Scorched Earth AI's and... Mimes! NB: Scorched earth destroys planets rather than letting you take control, never set both AI types to that if you want to win. Mimes mimic the ships you used against it, you'll think... “So what happens if I use...” and the answer: You die.)

Lastly, the developers are kind, polite and extraordinarily hard working. The game has evolved with constant developments for year after year after year. They read people's after action reports, watch the lets plays, answer questions on the forums and are just plain nice. Not a dull nice, but a sweet, genuine, sharp and creative nice... rather like shaving a birthday cake into a beard. Or sneaking into the office to digitise old files to save you time.

They've got a touch of magic, love and creativity that I want to watch, and I hope that other people will have a chance to see it too. So yeah, it's just a game, the graphics are a little dated and the learning curve is a little steep... it isn't really magic and it doesn't grant any wishes. But I like it. I'm glad I bought it. I hope you'll set aside a few hours and give it a solid try. Then some more hours when you drag a friend to play a co-op game.

Amazing space strategy game.

It has incredible depth, but is still straightforward to pick up. You will lose a lot in this game, but learn as you go.
The visuals are incredibly impressive, and the AI operates on a threat factor system which means it will respond to your expansion in logical ways.
It is also brutally efficient of taking advantage of any holes in your defences.

Recommened for all 4X and RTS fans.

For more details, read KJ[]Real's review for this game with which I agree 100%: http://steamcommunity.com//profiles/76561198034117169/recommended/40400/

I have owned the game for something like three or four years.. for each of those years I have played the tutorial, tried to understand the game and to be able to play it to win.. and I've failed every time.

This year for the fourth time I tried again. and this time I succeeded. And WOW... suddenly the game unfolds like a flower .. or perhaps a supernova.
I expect it will be another four years before I win a game, but I will enjoy the game on and off for the rest of my life I think.

Astonishing depth hidden behind a horrible (but learnable) interface.
