Default Fix Aliens: CM AI with a single edit

An FYI for Aliens fans who were crushed with disappointment by this game. Worth a replay? Up to you - I'm just posting the news and a link to the fan made patch mentioned in the article. Get it here.

I think it's still on my hdd, so I may give it a go.

https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/...ines-awful-ai/

Quote:
A years-old, one-letter typo led to Aliens: Colonial Marines‘ weird AI

This week brought to our attention one of the weirdest coding typos we've ever seen in a game—which has apparently been hidden inside of A:CM's PC version since its 2013 launch.
Quote:
Upon researching this patch, ResetERA readers noticed something in the moddb.com notes that somehow escaped the gaming community at large in October 2017: the discovery of a one-letter typo in A:CM's INI files. As moddb.com user jamesdickinson963 pointed out last year, the game's "PecanEngine.ini" file references a "tether" system in assigning AI commands to the series' infamous monsters (which I'll call "xenomorphs" for brevity's sake, even though that term isn't necessarily the right one). However, one of its two mentions of the term "tether" is misspelled as "teather."

Dickinson's post alleges that this command, when spelled correctly, "controls tactical position adjustment, patrolling, and target zoning. When a xeno is spawned, it is attached to a zone tether. This zone tells the xeno what area is its fighting space and where different exits are. In combat, a xeno will be forced to switch to a new tether (such as one behind you) so as to flank or disperse so they aren't so grouped up, etc." Thanks to how the engine parsed this typo, it never caused any crashes; instead, the engine ignored the unfamiliar term. Thus, the game's monsters never received the smarter, useful information that had been programmed from the get-go.
Quote:
On Friday, Ars re-downloaded and tested the game, exactly as served by Steam, through the opening beats of two missions. Then, we replayed those missions after editing the "teather" typo in the aforementioned INI file. In both missions, xenomorph AI improved dramatically once the typo was corrected, with monsters immediately taking advantage of elevated attack positions, hiding points, and multi-monster flanks. The difference is night-and-day.

This is why you don't ****ing swallow errors. If the AI doesn't work without that ini key then there should either be a default value used if it's missing or raise a damn error.

This is actually an interesting discovery, I'd like someone to interview the devs about it to see their take.

I'm sure other high profile games have similar small bugs in them that might have impacted aspects of the game, seeing how complex game engines are these days. This was only caught because the bug was in a publicly readable ini file and not the source code of the game.

Not really. If you spell checked source code you'd have to sort through an absurd amount of hits. Same with an ini file. I guess code spell checkers do exist, but I've never tried one. I can't imagine they would be very useful. Most of the time it won't matter anyway, because you'll get errors when you compile the code if you mistype a class name or whatever else.

For example (taken from an ini file)

Enable=0
FlipTitleButtons=0
VTPackDelVTP=0
VTPackDelFolder=0
VTPackIgnoreUnsupp=0

4 out of those 5 keys would be considered misspelled checked against an English dictionary.

You add your own entries to the dictionary as you code, so that when you spell check after it only flags things you didnt intend, i use it for all kinds of things, novel editors use it that way to to ensure weird made up words are consistent through out

Good find, Lazy. I'm tempted to fire this up again and try it with the patch and fixed ini. As soon as I finish the other dozen or so games on my backlog.

Hmm I guess that makes sense. Again though, it only really would apply to strings and comments when you're programming. Any typing or syntax mistakes will cause errors when you try to compile your code, so the dictionary wouldn't be that useful. I guess if you could have the dictionary only spell check things that are between quotes or something then it could be cool. Maybe I'll try one out just to see how they work.

Honestly it's pretty embarrassing. Did the guy responsible for the AI not realize they weren't acting right? I understand there is time pressure on games, but it still seems like utter BS that something like this wouldn't have been caught. It sounds like it was a lot more than a minor problem if the AI didn't even operate as intended without it.

And Ars article dated two days ago states that it was caught last year, yet it never seemed to make the rounds.

You're always free to ignore the thread if you aren't interested.

Neat, now the rare sections where you actually fight aliens will be better, too bad about the rest of the game though.

Game should have been called Colonial Marines vs Weyland-Yutani.

So many bugs in this game.

Even at $3, that means Gearbox is still sitting back and making money off this game.
