I used this to get how more % our army is powerful:
;v7 our army AI value
;y9 neutrals army value
!!VRy10:Sv7*100:y9; set y10 to v7, multiply by 100 then divide by y9. Am I on the right way at least?

You may not even care about how powerful is your army. Just look at this simple maths:
a/b = c/d is equivalent to a*d = b*c.

Now even more confused. I started my script to match the doc file which says to find neutrals then our army AI values. Then set the percentage. Your first example on previous page uses maths operations i can't use in erm so I have to stick to this:
0 – 50% 7
50 – 67% 7
67 – 100% 6
100 – 150% 5
150 – 200% 4
> 200% 3

For example,
V1 = Army_Power
V2 = Neutrals_Power
then
Quote: k < 0.5 then 7 stacks
0.5 <= k < 0.67 then 6 stacks
...
is equivalent to
V1/V2 < 1/2 then 7 stacks
1/2 <= V1/V2 < 67/100 then 6 stacks,
...
or
2*V1 < 1*V2 then 7 stacks,
1*V2 <= 2*V1 and 100*V1 < 67*V2 then 6 stacks,
and so on ...

R4 = 41 tells you only that Deviation = 0. First, you should find the basic splitting.

Quote: The Splitting Problem
1. Find both Army_Power and Neutrals_Power. They are just the sum of AI values of all creatures in the corresponding armies. A powerful hero at your side doesn't change anything.
2. Find k = Army_Power / Neutrals_Power.
3. Determine the basic splitting:
k < 0.5 then 7 stacks
0.5 <= k < 0.67 then 6 stacks
0.67 <= k < 1 then 5 stacks
1 <= k < 1.5 then 4 stacks
1.5 <= k < 2 then 3 stacks
k >= 2 then 2 stacks
Note:
Here all the floating point numbers are of double precision, or type; sizeof(double) = 8 bytes.
4. Find the actual splitting:
1. R1 = a*x + b*y + c*z + d
2. R2 = R1 / 65536 (integer division here!)
3. R3 = R2 % 32768
3a. If R3 < 0 then R3 = R3 + 32767
4. R4 = R3 % 100 + 1
Where:
a = 1550811371
b = 935900487
c = 1943276003
d = 1120346418
Then,
if R4 <= 20 decrease the number of stacks by 1
if R4 >= 80 increase the number of stacks by 1 unless you have already 7.
Awesome, now we know everything.
Still, it looks like very elaborate way to solve a simple problem

The basic splitting is 4 because of 200% power difference, according to document. Maybe he missed >=200, because I get 3 stacks.
@Edit: no, actually I get 2 stacks when attacking, wtf

You got 3 stacks in game? That would hurt...
Try with 89, I hope you get 2 stacks.

According to my table, the basic splitting is 2 when k >= 200%. How many stacks do you see?

2, edited. What is the accurate table, please give me so I can add the calculations.

k < 0.5 then 7 stacks
0.5 <= k < 0.67 then 6 stacks
0.67 <= k < 1 then 5 stacks
1 <= k < 1.5 then 4 stacks
1.5 <= k < 2 then 3 stacks
k >= 2 then 2 stacks
ok got it. Now going to write the thing.

Also, take care of the following cases:
1. You have 7 stacks according to the table, still you have to add 1 stack due to Deviation, just don't.
2. You have less creatures than stacks in the actual splitting. For example, 3 orcs cannot divide themselves to fit 7 stacks

Yeah I forgot, will add those checks for final, thanks.
The first case needs only one fix, but the second is a bit longer to do.

Why, just compare the number of neutrals with the number of stacks. If less, #stacks = #neutrals.

ok, here is a draft of how it will look when rightclick on monsters. it shows the number of stacks, it shows if there is upgraded stack, green number is total number of monsters, right number (110) is about monster stack's aggression (1/compliant, 10/savage).
I have no idea what other infos to add, anyway, both # infos are disabled by default, must configure ini file to show them because I consider cheat.

It seems you have misplaced Grand Elves. They should be in the middle  [N/2], where N  number of stacks.
