It's not only possible to play exciting matches at 3000% of normal speed thanks to the auto_speed-command - it's also possible to play interesting matches where you have the same color/tribe as the AI.

Unfortunately that doesn't work easily in singleplayer or lokal multiplayer - it seems like one has to go into the multiplayer lobby and request the help of someone who is not at the same network. One starts a match (both players pick the same colour) and then the assisting player just leaves the match. Then simply chose "replace player by normal AI" and play that game.

This works only in Widelands versions which are newer than build 19 - and I'm not sure yet if it works every time or if one has to win the game first (which would be obviously a problem). I'm going to find it out....

It's tested now - it seems to work only if the match is already won. But maybe it would be a nice feature for the future.
