How to download Robocode

Robocode is downloaded from the download page at SourceForge containing all Robocode releases available for download, which you can find with this link.

The file to download is a JAR file, i.e. Java Archive file, which is in fact a ZIP file used for distributing Java programs. The name of the file will be named something like robocode-setup-1.5.0.jar, where "1.5.0" indicates the version number.

How to install Robocode

If Java has been properly installed (see [Robocode/System_Requirements]), you should be able to install Robocode by double-clicking on the downloaded setup file for Robocode (the JAR file).

Alternatively, you could open a command prompt or shell change the directory, which you downloaded the Robocode setup file into by using the "CD" command, and type:

java -jar robocode-setup-1.5.0.jar

Of course the "1.5.0" might be replaced with the Robocode version you are going to install.

How to get notified about new releases

If you want to know exactly when a new release is available, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for Robocode file releases at this page. The RSS feed will provide you with a link to both the release notes and where to download Robocode.
