Background

"RoboWiki Donor"

I'm a 26 year old Software Engineer, fledgling guitar player, Smash Bros expert (well, I try =)), and admitted Robocode addict. I took a stab at Robocode in late 2002 just before starting my college career, but never got much past LinearTargeting and PerpendicularMovement. I took another look in Fall of 2005, and in less than a week, I was completely hooked!

I've got some web sites, though most are not updated often and/or just out of date: (partially thanks to Robocode)

  • dijitari.com - The root of a few small/fun web pages of mine. (man@machine isn't mine, though.)
  • dijitari/void - Miscellaneous personal stuffs.

My bots

  • Dookious - A duelist named after Count Dooku, using WaveSurfing and GuessFactorTargeting. He's currently at #1 in the RoboRumble general 1v1 class (since 4/18/2006).
    • Shaakious - An experimental duelist, named after Shaak Ti. Uses the movement from Dookious and a PatternMatching gun.
    • Tyranius - A cross of the WaveSurfing movement from Dookious, and the amazing targeting of Ascendant. Version 1.0 hit a rating of 2092, over 10 points ahead of Dookious at the #1 spot (at the time).
    • Lukious - Built from the shell of Dookious, Lukious is a duelist that uses DynamicClustering for data analysis in both movement and targeting.
  • Codious - A melee / team bot (only melee released so far), using MinimumRiskMovement and the same (but differently configured) PatternMatching gun as Shaakious. Retired for now.
  • Komarious - A MiniBot duelist using WaveSurfing and GuessFactorTargeting, currently at #2 in the MiniBot class, and about #25 in the general rankings.
    • KomariousTeam - A TwinDuel team based on my mini surfer, Komarious. Started out as a very average team, but I left it in the tourney for the sake of variety. Then David Alves came along, tweaked it a bit, and now it is one of the top entrants in the TwinDuel.
  • LuminariousDuo - My serious TwinDuel team, currently using GuessFactorTargeting and MinimumRiskMovement.
  • BrokenSword - Born from LuminariousDuo, this is a melee MiniBot. It's around #10 in the melee MiniBot rankings, but I'd love to get it into the top 5 (or 1) some day. =)

Other stuff

  • TwinDuel - A 2v2, CodeSize restricted survivalist competition that I run weekly. The tourney consists of a round robin where everyone faces each other 1 or more times (these days, always 1) to determine the seeding for a traditional, single elimination bracket tourney, with the finals being best of 3. Originally, I just automated the round robin, but now the entire tourney is automated. Get the source code here: TwinDuelUtil_002.zip. Thanks to Albert for his RoboRumble code, which I used to learn how to do some things, and copied a little code from, as well.
  • Segmentation Research - Some machine learning methodologies applied to finding good Segmentation slices in targeting.

Where did you get that handle?

Once upon a time, my handle was "Void". (If you were around at the dawn of FPS internet gaming, you might remember me from PlanetQuake!) One night, I was "Darth Voidious" for a gaming session where we all played with Star Wars themed names (around the time of Episode I). Eventually, "Voidious" stuck, and the gaming scene got far too big for "Void" to be a unique handle... So after a bit of a hiatus from gaming, I got back into it a bit and used "Voidious" exclusively.
