Try using (turning on) Hadware Cursor in Options - Visual menu in the game. xD
I don't know if it's going to work... but who knows? Smile

Or, try to reinstall the game, use compatibility mode...

About a better AI, in the switcher, go to the tab AIs, and click twice in the ExtremeAI2.3, then launch the game and play against AI... ;P

I found these solutions on internet:

1- Try lowering the key repeat in your control panel/keyboard settings.
2- Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center -> Set up Repeat and Slow Keys
Here you will find the settings to change. (idk if it is the same thing as 1)
3- Update Video, Keyboard and Mouse drivers.
4- Read this topic http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/shift-freeze-t2678637.html.

That's it... Hope it helps! ;D

Some PCs or Windows versions have a special action executed if you hold down the Shift for a few seconds. Try to press down Shift for a few seconds (at least 15) wile you're at windows desktop to see if anything (a message, a window) appears. This may cause your problem.
Also, you can play custom scenarios where AI has a ton of units and defences, but they are played online only in co-operation with a friend. So, you may join online TAK for co-op versus the AI gameplay only. Wink

There are some maps which are scripted. You understand if a map is scripted because it automatically has the "use map script" button pressed if you select it.

However, you have to manually put AI player(s) in these scripts before launching the scripted map (custom scenario) online.

In order to put an AI opponent on GameRanger, you must first "block" all the "empty" player slots and un-block them one by one.

However, you are still probably not going to be able to include more than 2 or 3 AIs if there are 2 human players or a single AI if there are 3 human players. I haven't seen anyone managing to inculde any AIs at all with 4 or more players, so I thing it goes like this:

1 human player = up to 7 AI players (single player)
2 human players = up to 2 (or 3) AI players
3 human players = up to 1 AI player
4+ human players = no AI player

Fortunately, the 99% of co-op scripts were made with 2 or 3 human players co-operating against a single yet powerful AI opponent, so there is not going to be any problems.

Here are some co-op maps to start with, good luck & have fun!

but there are more, much more (especially tower defence co-op missions)
Good Luck & Have Fun
Long Live TA:K!

Why don't you ask a real-life friend of yours to download TAK and play co-op scripted maps with you? Or an internet friend? Or try to join GameRanger at weekends; especially Saturday nights. Wink
