Naïve solver

ICFP 2012Posted by Pär Bohrarper Fri, July 13, 2012 21:58:16
We have now implemented the game logics, and a very naïve pathfinding solver. It doesn't really even solve the example maps, but it gets some points. It'll do for a lightning round submission..

Ah, graphics!

We extracted the bitmaps from the pdf and started making a graphical viewer/debugger.

Boulder Dash

The task this year is to build a robot that plays a game similar to Boulder Dash. That has to be fun!

Final submission

I have made yet another submission, probably the final one. It looks rather promising. No invalid results and five straight wins so far.

Invalid results

I had problems with invalid results on the duel server, which I first couldn't repeat during testing. Hopefully, the problem is solved now. I found an unhandled exception that I have fixed. I made a new submission, which also included some small adjustments of the algorithms. It has only competed two times, but at least it hasn't failed yet. Only one win, though.

First victory!

The submission won the first duel. Cool! Maybe it is not completely useless after all.
