Learning from other Robots

By now, you should know how to use the Robot editor and create robots. If not, you should follow the My First Robot Tutorial first. You will also want to look at some tutorials.

Eventually, though, you'll want to learn by examining code written by others. Some authors graciously include the source to their robots, and you can examine these robots using the Extract downloaded robot for editing tool, in the Robot Editor:

Shows how to extract a robot by selecting "Extract downloaded robot for editing" in the File menu of the Robot Editor


Simply select the robot you want to extract...

Shows the dialog used when extracting a robot, where the user must choose which robots to extract


Then click Extract to extract the .jar to the robots directory..

Shows a dialog which prints out information about the progress and results of extracting a robot


As you can see, the files in this example were extracted to C:\robocode\robots\rapture\. You can now open them up and look at them in the Robot Editor:
