:arrow_forward: ISSUE

This bug exists for some time now. If you start a game with a custom AI and restart the game, the computer will fall back to the default DE AI, even though the player name still shows the custom AI.

(Please also check the other AI bug I reported recently.)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

  1. Start a new game. Choose a (local) custom AI for player 1 and the default AI for player 2.
  2. Make sure player 1 in the game is the custom AI.
  3. Restart the game by going to the Main Menu and clicking “Restart”.
  4. The loading screen appears, it still shows the custom AI player name for player 1.
  5. In the restarted game, player 1 is now the default AI, even though the name still suggests it is the custom AI.

NOTE: This does not happen if an ERROR occurs in the custom AI while starting the game. So, if directly after starting the game an AI error appears, restarting will not cause it to use the default DE AI.

In the screenshot of a restarted game, player 1 is clearly the default DE AI, even though it shows a custom AI name.
