Welcome to the RoboWiki
Collecting Robocode knowledge since 2003.

What is Robocode?

  • Robocode is a programming game. It can be used to teach or learn programming in Java or .NET. It can serve as a platform for exploring AI and machine learning techniques. Or it can be a competitive, addictive hobby that eats up all your time and CPU cycles.

Getting Started

Using the RoboWiki

  • We do our best to make the RoboWiki a great reference for all levels of Robocoders. But it's also a strong and long-standing community of passionate and helpful people.
    • Check the Recent Changes to see current discussion and updates.
    • Please feel free to make pages for yourself and your bots.
    • Ask questions and read up on any of the Discussion tabs of each page.
    • Submit your bots to the RoboRumble
    • Follow @robowiki and @roborumble on Twitter.
    • Read Guide for Articles for tips and tools for writing RoboWiki articles.
    • Let us know how we can improve the wiki - or contribute to it yourself!

A few robots worth checking out...

Development Tools

  • RoboRunner / RoboJogger - The latest and greatest in batch battle running, these tools make it easy to run loads of battles against your favorite test bed, or to run your bot through a challenge.
  • Eclipse - Get Robocode setup with Eclipse, one of the most popular Java IDEs.
  • Robocode API - Not a "tool", per se, but you'll need to get familiar with it!
  • Graphical Debugging - Using Robocode's graphics support to draw on the battlefield can be a huge help in making sure your bot is doing and thinking what you expect it to.
  • Visual Studio .NET - You can now create .NET Robocode bots, too.
  • NetBeans - Prefer NetBeans to Eclipse? Here's a detailed guide to getting it setup with Robocode.
  • FloodGrapher - Graphing your bot's movement can offer a lot of insight into where you need to make improvements.
  • Utilities - More tools to make your Robocoding easier and more productive.
