Default Ritual\'s Condition Zero (DS) A.I.

I love CZ, both of it.
Ritual's work in the game is great, but the AI is.. uh.. not the best. I remember in Gamespy preview in 2003 that Ritual will use Half-Life's marines AI, which is great. But, in the game, the enemies (and teammates) are not as good as the Half-Life's marines.
What's happened with Half-Life's marines AI? If Ritual's CZ has a better AI, I'm sure CZ will be so much better.

Unfortunately, compared with todays standards, the HL grunt AI really isn't anything too impressive. I'm pretty sure the grunt/marine AI was used as a base for the AI in CZ. Seeing as how Ritual never got the opportunity to fully polish the deleted scenes, it's understandable why there are issues with the AI.

With that said, the AI, as seen in HL, is extremely fragile. we ran into simple problems like a soldier with a task, and running to a specific location, would completely break if you saved and loaded the game. That's just one example of the multitude of problems we ran into. Between buggy code and un-polished game sequences it's surprising there aren't still more issues popping up related to the AI.

Thanks for the answer.
Anyway, do you have any plan to update your CZ? I'm pretty sure Steam technology will allow you guys to polish CZ even more.

If and when CZS will be patched is entirely up to Valve. We don't really know what their current plans are for that.
