    What I think he means is that Community Patch and Vox Populi aren't the same thing.

    It means that the vanilla difficulty formula's are used on the community patch, but Vox Populi overhauls them with that page's formula.

    Community patch is just the first module of the mod, with almost no changes to vanilla except for massively improved AI. (Also a few others that are needed like siege units not needing to set up because AI couldn't 'get it'.)

    Standard quadratic formula: A* x2 + B* x + C = D.

    As g mentioned, the issue is the variable names are backward, that’s why it was confusing

    Ah, I see what part of the code you were talking about now. My mistake.
