And just in case you think I submitted Linio as my SPCS final project. I did not. I could send you the code I used for my project. It was, I guarantee, completely my own.
Thanks for the quick response. If you wrote your own bot for the SPCS, why not release that as well?
And don't worry about not asking permission, that isn't what I care about. What's important to me is that 1) you make your bot open source - any compiled version you release needs to be accompanied by source code, so that any improvements or changes you make can be easily identified - and 2) you give credit.
Those are the issues that concern me. However, there are others further down in the ranks, who have spent years of work achieving their ranking (much like I have). To be honest I'm not sure it's fair on them to take a tweaked, finished solution which has been completely integrated between gun and movement, reshuffle how some of the code is laid out, change some class names and call it your own.
To be honest, it really does bother me quite a lot. It took me almost 8 years (of on and off again work) to get to here I am now in the rumble. That is quite a chunk of time.
But I am surprised I managed to recognize what someone elses robot was based off from only on the class structure and names, given that it wasn't based on one of my robots.
I agree, this bot is a clone, it infringes Skilgannon's copyright, and should be removed from the rumble.
