Programmable AI for Neora
#1
My last output is already a bit older, therefore: Now AI support for Neora!

Since there is no real support so far, I was asked if I could take it on.

Description

In the past, people have managed to write AI themselves (see, for example, YinYin's tutorial on how to get started). However, this has never worked in a modified EXE, such as for Neora. I have adapted the code of Silva/Boop/Doix and SomeoneElse and the extension of zort so that "all" hex addresses are correct. ( To be honest, a few addresses are still missing, but these should not be essential for now. )



Source Code

This project is open source, so anyone can look at the modified code.

Source Code on GitLab



Download

On the same page of the source code you can also find the download links. Make sure that you do not download the source code, but the compilation.

Breaking Changes

There is one change that unfortunately can not be done otherwise. For AIs to work for Neora, the call to
game
must be changed to
gamePtr.game
.
Furthermore, not a breaking change, but quite important: Neora supports 1000 objects, instead of 400, so if you find a for loop that goes to 400, just expand to 1000.



Version

The current version is 1.0.1.



Credits

Big thanks to the preliminary work of Silva/Boop/Doix and SomeoneElse. (Thread)
Big thanks to zort for the enhancements. (Thread)
Big thanks to seikosantana for the compilable AI version (Thread).
Also a thank you to Nakato for queries about Neora and offering help!

It's been some time since I've checked out Neora, I don't quite recall honestly... Could this be good for an improved version of the original game, but with the same mechanics in terms of how data works?

Having no options for adding custom AI, has been a reason to 'just' go with the original LF2 exe, so far.

Maybe. However, I am not an expert in Neora either (I have asked a few questions to Nakato myself). In any case, Neora now has one less limitation.

Archer-Dante informed me that there was a bug (thanks for that, and thanks to the person who wrote to Archer-Dante). The bug fix causes a change, with which just about every AI needs to be adjusted, however the change is quite simple (see main post, "Breaking Changes"). Unfortunately, the access to "game" has to be changed a bit. Download link is in the same place as described in the main post (GitLab -> Releases).
