A symmetric 4p map ideal for FFA games. The design emerges from the Starcraft 2 ladder map [Sequencer].

This is an AI enhancement purely made for original Yuri's Revenge. Unlike VS-INI there are no game play and Unit changes whatsoever, only AI changes.

A simple symmetric 3v3 map. The design somewhat emerges from the classic TW map [Tournament Arena]. Have fun partying with AI on this one.

Hey, I wanted to point out that in rulesmd.ini [Easy] affects Hard AI while [Difficult] affects Easy AI. You should fix these settings in the next update :)

Proof from a guy that knows the game very well:

"[Easy] actually affects the Hard AI, [Normal] affects the Medium AI and [Difficult] affects the Easy AI (yes, it goes the other way than you'd expect). [brutal] and [Medium] don't exist in Rules.ini and so they don't do anything."

Any plans on updating the AI for original YR? I have opened both VS INI's and VS AI's aimd.ini file via Winmerge and there are huge differences between them.

welp, AI for the original YR was a side project anyway, it may or may not be updated in the foreseeable future. Anyone tho can try updating it themselves since all INI files are included anyway.
