    Re: The Byzantines are Idiots

    I posted a link to it a while back. The diplomacy is much better to. Having said that the Byzantines have the hardest position in the game in my opinion and the AI will still lose every time.

    Re: download AI pack (AI files only)

    I use Jack Lusted's "better AI" mod which works great for vanilla so that may be an option for you but I have no idea if it will work for retrofit.
