You have two options:
1. Go to the folder Res/ai/baka. Make a backup of the files deckt1.txt, deck2.txt, and deck3.txt. Then overwrite deck1.txt with your own deck, overwrite deck2.txt with the deck you want your deck to play against, and remove deck3.txt. Then start the gamem click on "Play" and then "Demo". This will start random matches between all AIs, but since you've removed the third AI, the game will only see the first two AI decks. This means you have a 50% chance to see a game between these two decks (and a 50% to see one of the two decks playing against itself).
2. Download my GameStateDuel mod from this thread
. This is a source code mod, so in order to use it, you have to replace the original source files with the ones from the mod and then recompile the Wagic executable. This post
has instructions for obtaining and compiling the sources (but you know them already
). If everything works, then you'll be able to select the AIs that you want to play against each other. You can also select your deck as first (or second) player, and let the engine randomly select one of the other decks for your opponent. Or you can let your deck play against a "gauntlet", in that case it will play once against each AI deck, from first to last.
Caveat: the code in this mod has grown horribly convoluted (it was about the first code I wrote in C++ and for Wagic), so I wouldn't recommend it for general use. You can always revert the files to the "regular" SVN version by right-clicking on them and choosing "Tortoise SVN -> SVN Revert". Then you can build the official Wagic executable again.
