If I do what this guy says http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=12657399&postcount=5 Will it make the AI's tech pace same as mine? Its bit confusing because I Went into Gamespeeds XML and seen the only thing that mentions research is >100< do i delete that 100 to 1.25? But I have a feeling that suggestion won't fix my annoyance with emperor difficulty. Because the AI will still research super fast and at most only delay them by few turns. So I looked into the CIV 5 Handicap xml It says Research percent >100< / research percent Is that what I modify to 1.25 and the game speed's research percent to 1.25 too? Because I want the Emperor AI to research at the speed of King AI so that I'll get to enjoy even more tougher wars without crazy research speed. Please help me out x.x Because I won't start a game on emperor until i figure this out with your help.
