I found this easy way to get rid of editing the gamenumplayers thing. gets the number of players menu working correctly, the mod includes: edited uiskirmishsetup.xmb, extra ai personalities (in a separate zip inside) and a readme with instalation instructions.
it works great here but if you find aproblem let me know and ill fix it ASAP
*note some maps like river by RF_Gandalf may not work properly because it is not designed for more than 2 players
just a quick note: u need to edit your profile,
its not included in the mod because it is different 4 everyone. here's how:
open /my documents/my games/users/NewProfile.xml be sure to select 'edit'
find the line 'Setting Name="gameplayer3aipersonality"(ai personality)' (without quotes) and change it to one of the ai's included (isabella2, elizabeth2, etc..) do the same with "gamenumplayer" 4,5,6,7 and 8. have fun! any problems post them here

I did it all, including adding this like elizabeth2 to the personality part, but I can't select my enemy's civs, and they don't play in the map.

the added ai's dont show up, but will play, just leave it random and it should work (havent looked why they cant be seen)
if they dont play its probably because you misplaced them? they go in my documents/my games/ai they play just fine here.
