I'm not sure, but I thought I could change the AI level as demo user in earlier patches, what seems to have been removed now.

Pathfinding in 'Mountain of lost souls' (CTS) is borked. The DGs will take the statues via the enemy's home spawn unless you guide them otherwise. Apart from that, the pathfinding is better on the other maps - especially 'The Holy Tree' map, which was a real problem - often sending DGs via the central tree 'island' to reach spawn point to the left or right of the start spawn - is now fine.
Whoever you vote for, the government wins.

Have to agree, the pathfinding is more broken than fixed. It's getting so you can't pick up any crates because you DGs want to stroll to Eastbourne and back on the way. I did have some screenshots, but I've just had a RAID episode that seems to have screwed half my drive contents :evil:

Such cases were probably like this before. Trust me, the path finding is leagues better from it's broken state in 1.1.

And, of course, in case pathological cases were missed, screenshots always help.

Okay, case in point in lieu of a screenshot; try walking anywhere near the crashed UFO in The Third Kind, especially near the trunk port and the WMD beam stations. You can't walk more than a few inches in a straight line.

I can confirm that:

Apparently, they don't like the big mountain range around the crash site. However, this has been that way in 1.0.5 already, so at least it's not a regression. Just use CTRL-click in that area as a workaround.

Cheers Bert, I wasn't aware of the force-move function. It's not the most intuitive command to be fair, as playing other RTS's you generally come to expect force-move to mean, 'go there or shoot that guy no matter what', rather than, 'go there without calculating any waypoints'.

Yes! Please do! The starting powerups bug isn't fixed, which is a bummer.

Demo players can join any LAN Multiplayer game on ANY map, so long
as that game is hosted by a full-game player (use this to demo the

Will the same apply to mac?
