AIvolution questions

Where can I find the most current release of AIvolution? Actually, stepping back, does AIvolution work with 2.0.10?
Additionally, does AIvolution suffer any bugs that would make it undesirable compared to the stock AI?

Not sure here, but I think Troman did work on the AI-stuff and changed things so he could do what he wanted with Aivolution. That's why I think that it does not work with 2.0.x.

Nice explaination...
Anyway, to clarify it: Molotov, theoretically it does work with earlier Warzone versions, but you will have to get an earlier version of Aivolution from the SVN, becuase it wasn't officially released for 2.0.x.
