Hello there,It's hard to find someone with time for setting and playing Machines these days. Recently I've played a match with @BeVeRenT-. Try and ask him directly. There are quite a lot of mods in the Modding section http://wiredforwar.org/category/4/modding. There are mods with enhanced graphics http://wiredforwar.org/topic/110/texture4/10, increasing max unit size http://wiredforwar.org/topic/17/mods-machines-loader or some custom scenarios available on the forums http://forums.wiredforwar.org/index.php?board=4.0.
The AI intelligence is impossible to change, but you can try changing the settings in parmdata to make the AI build better, produce more units, change attack squads, improve machines speed/damage/accuracy etc. See here http://wiredforwar.org/topic/3/getting-started-with-modding-machines/2.
Good luck and have fun!
WOW!!! We were originally the bad guys! The Red Race was truly malfunctional after all:
"Years passed and one race of machines on the planet Eden 4 suffered severe damage due to electrical storms. Most of the controller’s memory was damaged but the controller continued to function. The damaged machines continued to build until they exhausted all of the resources on Eden 4. The planet surface is now littered with steel and the controller decides that to further colonize, it must seed another planet. The planet they reach already is home to another race of machines, and a fierce battle for the planet’s resources begins."
You didn't miss anything - due to the limitations of the ISO format, the music is not present in the Disk 2 ISO files available from the site.
Until someone updates the downloads with disk images in a format that supports CD audio, the instructions I posted are the only way I know of to get working music using the files available here.
I went ahead and dug up my Alcohol 120% clones of the disks and added them to the download post. Hopefully this helps some people. :)
