Revision as of 23:34, 8 November 2017
- 1.x series, the PM series
- Try a very complex pattern matching gun.
- 1.0 series, the bullet shielding series
- Only will be implemented when I surpass Diamond :P
- 0.x, the tuning series
- Try to tune the random gun parameters with a SGD approach.
- Try to tune the anti-surfer gun, but it is pretty damn good already.
- Try to tune the movement parameters with a SGD approach.
- 0.x, the peek finder series
- Try to force myself into a situation the enemy has seen before when his gun is cool.
Things to investigate
- working on
- Improve on hitting simple movement.
- movement investigations
- Improve against simple bots, the firing wave flattener is doing ok for now, I'll stick to that a bit.
- Use a cool gauss weighting scheme for the flattener scans based on the hit scans (kinda inspired by the fuzzy-like approach Xor used in Scalar, though it is way different).
- Work on some better threshold for the flattener.
- Investigate why I'm diving that often.
- After all that, let's go back to flattening and maybe test a tick flattener.
- new movement view conclusion (0.5.9)
- It's working fine, it gave me awesome results in MC2K7, but still, a lot to improve in terms of flattener in two fronts:
- Dodging simple movement in such a way that I can really use a good hit threshold.
- Strong flattening against top guns.
- new random gun conclusion (0.4.9)
- Finally, those last changes traded a bit of PL for some (~0.2%) of APS, which is explained by the fact that the new anti-random gun does a bit worse than the old (which was named general purpose, btw) gun against surfers in general, or by the fact I changed the VG to stick with the anti-random in the first few rounds. Tired of working in the gun, I'll get back to it soon.
- 0.6.4S - 11.08.2017
- First try on DrussGT-like VCS surfing.
- 0.6.4 - 11.08.2017
- Rollback shadowing check (was using cross+dot product instead of atan2, rollback to atan2).
- Rollback tuned flattener.
- Re-add shadow anti-aliasing.
- Increase number of meetings to reduce flattener threshold to 8% from 4 to 6.
- Normalize distances of trees with different strategies before applying gauss weighting.
- 0.6.3 - 11.08.2017
- Orbit the enemy instead of the wave source.
- Rollback shadowing behavior.
- Tweak the flattener against simpler learners like RaikoMicro.
- 0.6.2 - 11.08.2017
- -0.2% compared to 0.5.9
- Rollback anti-random gun to the SlowDecayGun of 0.5.8.
- Rollback to max overlap in GF gun.
- Scale the bot-width danger by # of bins in the range - # of shadowed bins. Then scale by the angle and multiply by the shadow factor.
- Calculate time-since attributes correctly (without capping them).
- 0.6.1 - 11.07.2017
RoboRumble ‒ APS: 88.11% (7th), PL: 1148-4 (3rd), Survival: 96.71%
- Do not stick with the main gun for at least two rounds (rollback 0.6.0).
- Use old AS gun (it is good, believe it).
- Keep MEA stick 125.
- Changes to anti-random gun: add virtuality, remove bullets-fired, increase K from 100 to 200, weight by inverse distance.
- Use gaussian KDE instead of max overlap in GF gun. Should be slow.

- 0.6.0 - 11.07.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 88.01% (8th), PL: 1147-5 (4th), Survival: 96.68%
- Use main gun for at least two rounds (VG).
- Use other AS gun.
- Increase enemy MEA stick to 125.
- This setup gave me 77% at TC 2K7. I'll definitely stop touching my AS gun. It is already good, I must accept that.
- 0.5.9 - 11.06.2017
RoboRumble ‒ APS: 88.07% (7th), PL: 1149-3 (3rd), Survival: 96.69%
- Series-unrelated change: change the VG, give more room for the main gun to breathe, but still offers some possibility for the AS to catch up.
- Disable fast math when dealing with shadows.
- Tired of working at the same thing for too much time. Let's go back to the gun.
- 0.5.8 - 11.06.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 88.25% (6th), PL: 1148-4 (4th), Survival: 96.88%
- Flattener: hit% -> whit%, keep it turned on if round > 17.5.
- Take enemy distance (instead of only the wave source) on account when evaluating the wave danger.
- 0.5.7 - 11.06.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 88.03% (8th), PL: 1149-3 (3rd), Survival: 96.71%
- Drop in a flattening view.
- Log hits and flattening scans to distinct buffers and merge them accordingly.
- After 30 seasons it is worth a #1 spot at MC2K7 (pretty outdated ranking, but a good reference anyways). Let's see how it does in RR.
- 0.5.6 - 11.05.2017
- +0.7% compared to 0.5.4
- Remove x.x5 exploit for a while.
- Remove the flattener.
- Change wave danger formula (how impact time, bullet damage and distance were handled).
- Point of transition between surfed waves is now the break point of the first wave (before it was the pass point).
- Fix a tiny bug in wall smoothing: now I get closer to the wall. Not sure if it is a good thing.
- Add gun-heat waves, good improvement against close-rangers, but again, no flattener enabled. Gotta think about new flattening conditions if I want to keep this improvement.
- 0.5.5b - 11.02.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.65% (8th), PL: 1148-4 (4th), Survival: 96.38%
- Improve the x.x5 exploit to the best I can think.
- 0.5.5 - 11.02.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.18% (10th), PL: 1148-4 (4th), Survival: 96.33%
- Try a reweighted flattener.
- 0.5.4 - 11.02.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.29% (9th), PL: 1144-8 (7th), Survival: 96.1%
- Add a basic tree (max 4 attributes).
- Apply gauss weighting to all the trees as a group instead of to each of them individually.
- 0.5.3 - 11.02.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.26% (10th), PL: 1142-10 (10th), Survival: 95.92%
- Remove flattener.
- Break the only tree into monotonic trees.
- 0.5.2 - 11.02.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.23% (10th), PL: 1148-4 (4th), Survival: 96.07%
- Temporarily revert targeted distance to 675.
- Add a adaptive strategy and plug it into the flattener.
- 0.5.1 - 11.02.2017
- -0.25% compared to 0.5.0.
- Try to keep distance equals to 425 instead of 675.
- 0.5.0 - 10.31.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 87.4% (9th), PL: 1147-5 (4th), Survival: 96.2%
- Pretty hyped, long time since the last good improvement :)
- Got a new movement view with a single strategy (no distinction between flattener and hit stats). It has a flattener with higher decay and a basic hit tree. The cluster size is 100 in both, the cluster limit is sqrt(size) and the flattener has a decreasing hit threshold (no margin of error) as the battle goes on (0.1/0.085/0.075/0.065 [the last one from Diamond]). Its strategy is pretty simple by now, should be poor against pattern matchers and not that strong against surfers, but it performs really well against the non-adaptive branches of both MC 2K6 and 2K7.
- This tree was developed while tuning against MC 2K6 basic bots, when I figured out that my old hit tree was really weak against them and made me turn my flattener earlier/too often. When I finally got a good score against them, I moved on, always ensuring that my score against them was not really hurt.
- Surprisingly, it seemed to help against close rangers, which I usually did very bad (probably because of turning the flattener too often?).
- 0.4.9 - 10.31.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 86.2% (14th), PL: 1135-9 (15th), Survival: 95.47%
- Change MEA calculation a bit, its performance increase should be negligible.
- More compact version of the new random gun combined with the old anti-adaptive (which is still killing it all).
- Log hits in the adaptive gun and add a tree of size 8, K = 1;
- 0.4.8b - 10.30.2017
RoboRumble ‒ APS: 86.16% (15th), PL: 1141-10 (10th), Survival: 95.48%
- Revert VG scoring and fast exp.
- 0.4.8 - 10.30.2017
- Try a more recent version of the random gun with the old adaptive gun to see how it is going. Should be kinda frustrated...
- Now during the MEA calculation handle a bot hitting the wall (and stop the calculation).
- Won't touch the tree view for now, it's identical to 0.4.7 except for the addition of current-gf.
- Change VG scoring.
- Add fast exp.
- 0.4.7 - 10.29.2017
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 86.07% (16th), PL: 1118-15 (29th), Survival: 95.35%

- Quite surprised by its PL
- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 86.01% (16th), PL: 1156-4 (4th), Survival: 95.47%

- RoboRumble ‒ APS: 85.48% (16th), PL: 1116-11 (37th), Survival: 94.72%
