[DotP 2014] Is it possible to make all AI decks 'revenge'?

Postby Psicraft » 29 Jan 2015, 12:00

I want to play Single Player->Custom Game with my AI enemies (or AI Ally in 2HG) playing the Revenge version of their decks (where available) instead of the weak stock versions. (Especially with the 'Random' setting.)
I don't want them to be available to me, the player, at all.

Is this remotely possible, and what would the consequences be?

As far as I know, it's not. Any deck available in the random setting would be available to you. Well, it would technically be possible, but the effort required would be massive if the way I'm thinking turns out to be the only way: give each of the decks a token manager and all cards that should be available in either the normal deck or the revenge deck. Then have the token remove certain cards at the start of the game to make the deck either revenge or normal depending on whether the player using it is AI or human.

However, making the decks use their revenge card list isn't too difficult. Tedious, but not difficult. Unpack the wad containing the decks and open up the revenge deck XML. Copy that card list over to the normal deck's xml and save. Once they're all saved, repack the wad. Really, you should be removing all of the other files you didn't change, renaming the wad to something else, changing both header files to reflect this change of name, set the priority in both to 43, and THEN repacking the wad as a new wad which will overwrite the original without you actually changing your base game file.

RE: Paragraph 2

That may change the AI's decks but what happens to the player's decks?
