New build! This one has a couple of hotfixes. Linux became unstable partly because of a steam API update in the prior version (I think), and a GOG API update was also not helpful. Hopefully this solves those stability issues. There was also a necromancer bug in the prior version if you did not…

AI War 2 – 5.512 Dyson Reapers

New build! This one allows exo-war units to attack the necromancer. Spicy! Maybe convert them to mummies, or maybe run in fear?

AI War 2 – 5.503 Multiplayer Bug Smiting

New build! This one fixes the most notorious of the multiplayer bugs that players have been facing — big thanks to Badger for rooting out several that I just could not see, and had looked right past before. Wormhole changes were completely not working when sent to clients unless you disconnected and reconnected, due…

AI War 2 – 5.502 No More Overlord Doubling

A variety of bugfixes and balance tweaks in this one, along with updates to Outguard Party, Classic Fusion, and other mods: One of the larger bugs this one fixes is “wow two AI Overlord Phase 2s appeared instead of one.” That was a bug that was introduced over a really long period of time,…

New build! This one is smaller, mainly some fixes. Some of those for mods, some for the main game. More fixes and similar are coming; it’s been a really busy period, and those of us internally have been spread unusually thin. More to come soon.Enjoy!

AI War 2 – 5.500 Classic Fusion, And A Megaton Otherwise

AI War 1 and 2 fused together!? New build, and it’s truly a whopper: The first thing of note is that Puffin’s massive total conversion “Classic Fusion” mod is now released in this build. This has been a two-year project for him, and it essentially hybridizes the first and second AI War games, using…
