- Jun 17, 2007HPS is short for HPS Simulations is the name of the comany that
markets the games.
AI is artifical intellgence and is the PC player.
HPS has a website and you can do a find on John Tiller who is the
author of this system.
If you enjoy the TSS system these games will be great for you. When
I saw my first Tiller game TSS was my first thought.
