I'm not sure what you are asking. Did you make a melee map and are trying to give it AI? If so, don't do add any triggers. But if you made a custom map that you want a specific player to have melee AI, just set it to the player you want to have AI.

You must create an AI script by using the AI editor or JASS. You import that script into the map by using the Import Manager (or Add to Map command in the AI editor) and insert the script after ":".

Hope it helped!

Wow! Now I understood your question!

I think you have to do it the hard way. Import all racial AI scripts to your map (they are in AI Scripts folder under WarCraft III), check the race of the computer player, and start an appropriate script for the player.

Well, actually the AI scripts need not be imported. I misrecalled things. They are not found in the AI folder either. However, I found the solution. I tested it and it works. See the example below:

Code:
Melee Initialization
    Events
        Map initialization
    Conditions
    Actions
        Melee Game - Use melee time of day (for all players)
        Melee Game - Limit Heroes to 1 per Hero-type (for all players)
        Melee Game - Give trained Heroes a Scroll of Town Portal (for all players)
        Melee Game - Set starting resources (for all players)
        Melee Game - Remove creeps and critters from used start locations (for all players)
        Melee Game - Create starting units (for all players)
        Visibility - Create an initially Enabled visibility modifier for Player 1 (Red) emitting Visibility across (Playable map area)
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Race of Player 2 (Blue)) Equal to Human
            Then - Actions
                AI - Start melee AI script for Player 2 (Blue): Scripts/human.ai
            Else - Actions
                Do nothing
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Race of Player 2 (Blue)) Equal to Orc
            Then - Actions
                AI - Start melee AI script for Player 2 (Blue): Scripts/orc.ai
            Else - Actions
                Do nothing
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Race of Player 2 (Blue)) Equal to Undead
            Then - Actions
                AI - Start melee AI script for Player 2 (Blue): Scripts/undead.ai
            Else - Actions
                Do nothing
        If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            If - Conditions
                (Race of Player 2 (Blue)) Equal to Night Elf
            Then - Actions
                AI - Start melee AI script for Player 2 (Blue): Scripts/elf.ai
            Else - Actions
                Do nothing

The scripts are in fact in Scripts folder (inside MPQs) and they are named as in the above example (human.ai, orc.ai, undead.ai, and elf.ai).

Cheers,

Tommi
