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!
Most common and earliest known version of the demo.
Rarest version of the demo. Featured on the (Itaian) PC Gamer CD #041 B.
I asked Moritz, the administrator of the Kult Cover Disks and he not only answered, but to my amazment - attached not one but three (!) versions of the demo! :D
"I happen to have a few copies of PC Games 05/99 on my shelf. I quickly checked and found that is particular demo is also featured on PC Player 06/99 B and GameStar 06/99 Bonus CD. Its cab file is dated to 1999-02-23. A more common demo dated to 1999-01-14 can be found on the following CDs:

For download go to Demo versions (contains early / beta stuff) topic.
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. :)
