How do you know it wasn't enabled? I wasn't aware there was a way to check if it was enabled or not after you had started the game. I played with it on and it didn't make that much of a difference. And when it did, it was after dying time and time again. It's not like the guys yell out "ok we're going to ease up a little for you". If you keep hitting quick load when you die, I don't think it will do anything to make it easier; you have to wait until the screen goes all red and the load game screen comes up.
Again, i'm just speculating here. When I played the game, I accidentally started it on the easiest setting, and didn't realize it for a while when I realized that it was way too easy. So I did what I told you to do, except I changed the difficulty to challenging, rather than enabling AI autobalance. I don't see why it wouldn't work.
If you are still having problems, just restart the game. You're only 1/4 of the way in it. That's not that far.
