Random Maps - Ai Turns

Hi guys,

I recently installed HoTa and love the extra sizes in maps. I am enjoying the random maps a lot but after a while it becomes quite annoying when the Ai starts delay completing its turn.

Of course it's perfectly playable but currently having 3 opponents and each one of them is taking some seconds before they complete their turn which becomes quite annoying to complete a game.

I noticed that Dimension Door consumes a lot time for them to cast thus I made sure to remove it from the custom map but still it didn't help much.

Do you have any other tip? The first days run so smoothly...

This bug is known from 1996 year. Yes, AI when uses Dimension Door consumes more and more time. And nothing you can do that expect killing AI hero who uses it as quickly as possible.

Do you know if Fly or town portal play a role as well?

Also any idea if by just having DD makes them delay doing anything?
Because sometimes you can see them just standing for a few seconds.

Lastly, why it only occurs on random maps?

AI calculates all possible moves to choose next step. And no, it occurs at custom maps too.

Then I believe Fly and Town portal is probably delaying them as well.

So I guess, it's not something that can be fixed right?

Thanks for your replies.

It occurs in any map where AI is set free to walk around. Custom maps using, for the most, stand still heroes, thats why they look to you faster.

Ok, I see.
Just wondering though, how do you guys handle it?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry to bump this topic but I am still wondering how you guys handle such a situation?

Sooner or later the AI starts to delay and I either give up playing or I start to rush everything to finish the game as soon as possible ruining all the gaming experience.

What I tried doing to solve this problem was:
I created a map in the map editor.
Disabled the spells Dimension Door, Fly and Town Portal.
Disabled the Artifacts Tome of Air, Earth and Spellbinders Hat.
Removed any of those artifacts that were placed already in the map.

However, playing the game after a point the AI still started to delay a lot. I noticed that despite disabling the spells they would still appear in a Town? Do I have to disable them from each town too?
Last culprit... Pandora's Box. There are nearly 200 of those placed in the map and many of them seem to provide those spells as a reward. I certainly can't go through all of them.


I am quite disappointed that I can't enjoy a map at its fullest.
Any suggestions please.

Why would you not finish a map as soon as possible?

I like taking it slow, exploring each area, collecting and killing and everything, building the hero as much as possible and so on. Rushing the game makes it quite boring, at least for me.

The way I like to play the game as well . You know, the goal isn't the end, it's the journey towards the end. But I guess it takes someone to be a completionist to understand that feeling.
