RoboCode Team Battle (Week 4)

Hi, everybody, the robocode competition goes up to another level, promising more fun and more jobs for you guys. We just released a new rule this morning requiring people to compete in team, 2-2 battle. The era of 1-1 battle ended. This morning is just a practice for a new game. You do not have time to improve your robot a lot, that’s ok now. You just need to have a better communication with your ally.

Now, we just take a look at battles between 2-2. There would only have 4 teams this morning but creating a lot of fun and entertain for people. Poor you guys, the people not joining this morning

The first match:

The Red and the Blue guy on the same team while the White and Black on the other team. The match was quite in the first team when the Black guy use the still strategy, which was good for some robot cases that can not shoot the still robot

The second match:

The 2 yellow guys compete with Gray and Blue guy. The 2 yellows shoot quite correctly but the strategy of the other team is against the Yellow team when they move in line but change direction really fast.

The third match:

We found the anti-Indian guy. Welcome to Yellow guys, you guys did a really well job when running in a spin strategy and the Indian strategy almost dies.

Wait for tomorrow, when we will have a real team battle. Never have the case that we will shoot each other any more. And AWARDS, will officially be given for the first 2 teams tomorrow.

RoboCode Report Week 2

And now, we are already on the week 2. Different than week 1 when I am too busy to write some brief report. I will write some brief report, feedback and evaluation about the second competition.

First, come to the battle between Police and Indian. We can see that Police does not have a big improvement over the last week, while Indian goes into the next level by getting the ideas of running around the opponents from his own opponents (ideas started by Police). We also wait for some peole to kill that suck Indian. Everybody really wants to kill the Indian

Then, we come to the next match between Tester and Rammer. Rammer tried to implements a combining strategy between Rammer, Indian and Spin Bot. But, to be honest, it was an example for what people say : “good idea, bad implementation”. Rammer tried to change the algorithm at the bad times and the RunAway strategy was not good enough. Waiting for the next version when Ramming and Indian shake their hands:D. We also welcome the new comer, a handsome guy, Phan Vo. Hope that we will see a better implementation in the next version

Yeah, now, we see how good Alosa (a loser) is and if it is a real alosa. With a quick implementation in the Web Dev class (Buu will get disappointed for that news), a new version of SweetPo has come into the world. And welcome Huy, another new comer this week. Inherits from the Indian, Huy produced a better implementation. That’s so good and fit exactly what we expect when publishing our source code. I can see a good future for Huy in later versions.

RoboCode Game competition

Hi, I am really happy and excited that we, RMIT students (RMITC), held a good competition. It was just a beginning for a series of RoboCode , game competition as said in previous post. No more talking, I will show you a demo from our students first.

That’s really cool and so simple, and we will have many more AI techniques and Software development there. We will try to add some more intelligence, game strategies in those robots to make it really fun (I already had some ideas in my head). We also have several activities around like tutorials (Instruction 1 and Instruction 2), code review (I did code review for my friends, Khang Nguyen and Phu Hoang) and open some of our source codes (Khang Nguyen, Phu Hoang, Tuan Anh, and Khang Vo). You do not need to be an expert programmer to start programming with RoboCode, the only need is your PASSION. Feel fun, just start. Play and learn. You will become an expert soon

Two more video examples

So, now, how can you join? If you are an RMIT student, it should be extremely easy, just come in. If you are not and you want to join, please contact me: vodkhang@gmail.com so that I can arrange for you to join. Or just wait, I and Youth House also try to operate some robocode competition events.
