[H3] Can you stop the AI from cheating?

Postby LoDebar » Jul 2 2011, 11:12

I'm playing SoD. I've made a map wherein I've disabled Fly and DD (both in the map specifications and each individual mage guild), disabled Tome of Air Magic, disabled Spellbinder's Hat, disabled Angel Wings... and yet I often see an enemy coming over the mountains, completely sequence breaking the keymasters and garrisons I've laid out.

I have opened my save as a multiplayer game and checked the flying hero. Not even once did they have anything that should let them fly.
What I usually do to deal with it is dismiss the hero that flew (sucks for them if they have 30 Titans) and send a good chunk of their money to me via marketplace as a penalty. But you know, two wrongs don't make a right, and I'd rather not have this situation come about.

There can still be Aurora Borealis avaliable.

Though there were many multiplayer maps where AI behaved correctly, so it's definitely possible and you're missing something.

Is it a tower hero? I often noticed this bug, one wizard starts to fly around without having the spell. There is nothing to do about...

There's definitively possible to do something - as this never happened on my maps - where the spells were edited - in the town. Globally the spell was allowed. And all heroes were edited as well, non-modified disabled.

Most of the time, yes. Once it was an inferno hero... or the inferno could've hired a tower hero from a tavern, I can't remember.
