Is there any need for the chat box when playing AI opponent?

Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

  • To save confusion, would it be best to remove the in game chat box when playing a computer opponent?

    It seems silly to have to option to talk when there is nobody there.

  • Good point! ..Tricky though perhaps, because often there are two human players present versus the AI (in realms etc), but for human versus AI duels maybe the chat box functionality could be greyed out or something.

    ...I think it's just preparation for when the day comes when the AI will eventually be able to talk and have thoughts and dreams and feelings.. and take part in banter, tell non PC jokes, troll opponents etc... I heard that CGR is making great strides, the AI has already learnt to say 'Shall we play a game?' ..Whatever you do, don't suggest Global Thermonuclear War.

  • Kind of a necro, but I have a confession. I use the chat box to say horrible things to the AI. Things like "drink bleach" and "bl;dhf" (bad luck; don't have fun) are some of the tamer ones I can say on the forums. Mostly cliché gamer insults and trolling. One day I'm gonna accidentally say something awful to a human and then have to explain that I thought they were a bot and I genuinely enjoy the community.

  • There are 10 types of people playing Chaos Reborn; those that like chatting with the AI, and those that don't. ;-)

  • It would be cool if it chatted back to you. Or even responded to a few prompts.

    For team matches in particular it'd be good if you could give it some instructions like 'Push Law' or 'Attack Mazy.'

    Preferably this should all be in Spectrum Basic:

    GOTO 10 = ''Why yes I think I will have another game thank you.''
