Problem Running RoboRunner
Cool, good to hear! I don't think I kept any real test results of speed vs RoboResearch, but I think it was in the range of 20% less time for my bot / system. The smart battles stuff helps too, but it's hard to measure.
Similarly, I had long wanted to update RoboResearch to use the control API instead of launching external Java processes. When I started digging into it, it just looked easier / better / more fun to rewrite from scratch.
