I heard the online AI is much harder than skirmish, i still need to test this :) I would try to enable the online AI for skirmish if possible

 

but you can use your own custom ai in this lobby too, the file is named _SPAWN.mis for cncnet, you will need to reanme your _PRAC.mis if you like to play it in the new lobby

If the online AI is different than the skirmish AI, it is stored inside the dat file, because it is not inside the prac.mis file.

It uses same build order, so the difference comes in speed of building and somehow bigger attacks. Yeah, must be some check in .dat that increases AI production if players >=2, idk, just thinking :D

...you don't seem to follow the community very much. TD is practically dead on cncnet. It's RA that has hundreds of games.

Yea I follow the charts on CnCNet. I set our bar low since red alert has over 100 active players at any given time :P .

Update:

the handicap setting has been added (finally!)

 

Skirmish has been changed, i gave the AI players a money boost and removed some checks to try to get them as good as in online games. cncnet skirmish works now different than the normal skirmish, in the normal skirmish the Easy/Med/Hard setting is changing the handicap of the player (different prices) and it does also change the way the ai behaves, i wanted to have the handicap setting separated from the ai difficulty :D Now you can change your handicap to 1star (easy) and play with low prices but at the same time keep the AI at the Hard difficulty.

 

Go ahead and try it out, the cncnet skirmish AI is now much better than the original one!
