10 AI Included





5)Malcolm X

6)Huey P Newton

7)Prince of Sydney

8)Prince of Malibu

9)Prince of Soulard

I have 5 other AI that are more powerful than these that I cannot get to stop crashing the game. Once I fix those will add them in 8.0.


BE SURE TO TURN OFF TAUNT AUDIO - THESE FILES MAKE THE AI COMMUNICATE AND SHARE INFORMATION TO BE SMARTER>>>> WHICH RELIES ON HYPER COMMUNICATION HACKS IN THE TAUNT SYSTEM… If you hear taunt spamming noises that is why. Consciousness in the real world requires continuous thought. These AI mimic this by streaming commands in the chat to themselves and other civs that each of them have reactions for. So essentially each AI can communicate with each other and have responses based on its own conditions and the conditions of those around them . All of which can change relationships from ally to enemy at any time between any civ. That coupled with a Social Economic Debt system built in using the market and trade systems makes it that each AI can ask for any resource when reserves are low and fulfill any resource request for any civ. If a civ receives more than a certain amount of resources from civ they can request to become allies via the chat. That civ who sent the resources can then choose to accept the ally request or not. If accepted they become allies. In the same vain, if one of those allies gets to big and gets an army too large they can turn on each other and become enemies. Many micro systems like these are implement to keep the AI constantly making breaking and forging new alliances all through the game.

Also working on a version that does not Spam chat for those who want a version that might be les powerful but also less vocal lol.



Updates in 5.0
1)New Version Included - Black Resistance which is based on the chinese version of BlackPower that was published on AoEHawks chinese Age of Empires II mod forum site.



Fixed issue with UserConst File missing!


This works on human vs cpu as well but only works if you add it to the file of the computer AI you want play against. I converted it over from AoE2:HD. You can also play as the AI that has this mod added and see how it communicates and plans.

You can see the performance of my AI that use this IQ booster. I have been converting from old AoE2 & AoE2HD files. Mine clearly dominate the standard AI on Hard, Hardest & Extreme.

Challonge.com - Link to a tournament showing result of many 8 on 8 battles. Each AI is using the files here vs the AI from the game. I’m am modernizing different old AI to play on the new game. I am currently running this tournament to continue to test and fix old AI. Once done will share the AI files etc here.

Updates in 4.5
1)Three Versions Included - For those who requested all the versions of this IQ Booster we now have three flavors included in this mod: BlackPower, BlackForce, BlackLiberation. Try each of the three on the same AI to see how each effects your AI differently. Only use one per AI as each contains alot of the same code just different approaches and tweaks.

2)Better Team Logic - AI will plan with allies against enemies

2)Fixed Resigning Issue - Now has better logic and does not resign unless makes sense
3)Resilience Improvements - Now acts more strategically using new AoE 2 DE logic.

Shoutouts: I have to give a shout out to every code, gamer or player who has took the time to develop AI 's for Age of Empire. I cant credit every developer that has had an impact. From Barbarian to Horde to Mexico to Kozmos to Prince of Uganda to LikeWar and many many more. I have created these AI by battling all of the best I can find on the web and merging and splicing them for over 20 years. From my own ideas to yours. This is for you. Enjoy!


I’d like to know the story of the name’s mod and why it is supposed to be the greatest AI.

I mean, I could say I’m the best player of AOE, but that wouldn’t mean anything if there is no proof of it

Greatest is a lil grandios but I stand by it. These AI beat every AI you face them against. See for your self. Plus these AI do things I have rarely seen any other Ai do. Leverage a debt based system using the tribute, trade and diplomatic systems. They tribute when asked. They make and break allies based on many strategic factors like size of military population. Amount of dollars received and more. I mean just check the details on the functionality of these AI. Where else have you seen that?

hey this didn’t work for me. I put it under local mod AI structure folder and choose any of the AI that comes with it, it just says error file UserPatchConst.per fail open.

Just fixed this and rolled out the new 8.5 edition. Please download and try again.

this do not work i put it in resources then ai folder pasted it there
thy do appear in game i get this error

Thanks for calling this out. I forgot to add the new file to the folder. Should be fixed now! Enjoy…

Coukd you give a short overview whats the key features/differences betweeem the ais included please.

Sounds like an amazing ai to simulate diplo games.

Can this best barbarian or that newer ai with the insane micro with franks? It doesnt have to be the strongest ai to be the most fun thought

Is it me or this thing is total trash? I tried different AI version included in the package, they either don’t work as intended (I suppose, same error as reported by Mauyed), or they just cheat by giving themselves 10k or more resources of food and wood. I tried a game with one AI (for example BlackPanther or BlackMessiah or BlackWarrior) against 3 other standard AI, but what’s the point in giving AI a huge advantage by just gifting it a huge amount of resources? Bah, as I said either I don’t understand how to use this mod properly, or it’s just trash.
