Those 5 top bots seem to steal my score against the weaker ones =) I'll have to do something about that. There are also a few problem bots like DiamondStealer and Dreadnaught which will require a bit of testing. I'm guessing some bullet power management would do wonders.

[[Diamond]] really stomps me in the endgame, so some sort of flattening and adaptive targeting may be helpful. Or just taking out Diamond earlier in the game before I have to face it 1v1...

What's special about it?

It does a nice job of surfing in a melee setting, which scales smoothly back to 1v1 surfing.

How competitive is it?

1st in Melee, so it currently sets the standard for Melee state of the art.

How does it dodge bullets?

By keeping tabs on which angles (actually Guess Factors) the enemy is most likely to shoot at in different circumstances, and avoiding them

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Between rounds it saves all the surfing and targeting data, between matches nothing

Where did you get the name?

Neuromancer is the name of an AI in a book titled, fittingly, "Neuromancer". I also think it sounds awesome, and it sort-of follows the nounverber pattern I've used in a few of my other bots (Waylander, Stormrider)

Can I use your code?

Sure, but under the following terms:

  • Your bot MUST be OpenSource.
  • You give credit in your code, and in any documentation of your bot.
  • Pleeaase don't just take my bot, tweak it and release it under another name. Rather tell me about the changes, and I'll give you credit. =)
  • Use of this code without my personal permission in ANY competition WHATSOEVER is strictly prohibited (an exception being the Roborumble)

What's next for your robot?

  • Using waves with an uncertainty width, rather than just a single-tick-wide wave.
  • Tuning and adding/removing attributes in the gun and movement.
  • Double-checking the gun physics - my spidey-sense is tingling Got 'm!
  • Use post-fire-data to figure out more details about where and when (and IF) enemies fired

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Diamond really stomps me in the endgame, so some sort of flattening and adaptive targeting may be helpful. Or just taking out Diamond earlier in the game before I have to face it 1v1...

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Some of the goto stuff is based on DrussGT. I've perused Shiz and HawkOnFire but none of the code was directly used, just ideas from what I learned.

It takes the targeting idea of 'everybody at once' from Shadow.

It also uses Rednaxela's Kd-Tree.
