Happened again w/ custom levels: My seedlings explored and sometimes attacked on their own, w/o orders from my side. I swear I’m not stoned. Well, at least not stoned or drunk or whatever enough that I’d imagine such things to happen.
Looks to me as if somehow demo mode is added to my playing, like when you have the main menu for a long time, the demo begins with AI playing, but I can also play together with it.

- The Night Creepers by Mihhaelo
Also, when finishing both levels I was brought back to the campaign menu, not to the Custom Levels menu. No unlocking of Skirmish arenas this time.
Oh, perhaps I was being punished for accelerating game speed again? Some hidden switch that sensed that I was acting out my ADD again and tried to help me in my impatience by switching some AI to help me? <edit>
For some [OT] content: Watching and listening and enjoying arte TV while I’m writing this: “Neil Young - Heart of Gold” (the documentary movie by John Demme). </edit><edit 2>
Played it again w/ Level 5 in each Campaign and DMM, no AI “helping” me here. And after winning I always came back to the menu where I began, i.e. Campagin and DMM, respectively.</edit 2><edit 3>
OK, I’m totally sure now. Created a folder “Custom Maps” in the maps folder, therein I put all 44 custom levels which I d’loaded this night and sorted in their own folders, played a few of these, always had AI “help” me, I could sit back and let the AI win the game alone for me.
Then played Skirmish arena level 5, no AI interference here. </edit 3>
