I've never attempted to do any AI behaviour before, I have a 2 player game which is a little bit like football but with two opposing spaceships. I'm thinking of attempting a single player version of this but I don't really know where to start.
Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can learn any of this stuff. I think I need an AI that can navigate the level (avoiding obstacles), and also attacking the ball when it's free, defending the goal when it is being attacked, plus picking up and using power-ups.
I could work out how to tell something to go to pick up the ball and defend but it's just the navigation I don't know, would you set up a series of waypoint paths for the AI to travel across around the level?
