I use 1.8.2.0 since it the latest from which rumble accept stats.

I would prefer 1.7.3.0 since it seems to have a faster graphics in comparison to newer versions and I like to use for my internal program/debug/observe cycle.

what versions are compatible with roborumble

Tmservo (talk)08:21, 13 March 2014

If you go to the rumble statistic page you will see: Allowed Robocode versions: ['1.8.1.0', '1.8.2.0']

I have a similar problem: When I used 1.8.8.0 and 1.8.9.0, everything worked fine. Now I (accidentaly) updated my Robocode to 1.9.0.0 and I cannot upload RoboRumble battles any more! It simply does not work with 1.9.0.0 and I dont know what to do...

Does anybody have an idea how I could get it working again?

The simplest is to downgrade or have two separate installations (as I do) with version which is accepted by the server.

The reason only 1.8.1.0 and 1.8.2.0 are allowed is because they both have a bug which affects the scores, giving top bots a slightly lower score. If we want to switch to new versions we will have to delete all data and start fresh, because new versions fix the bug.

I think it is better to allow newer version to participate and to regenerate stats. It might boost number of contributors.

Robocode is hard enough to start. Not everyone will have enough patience to see that it requires older version for rumble. Besides it is better to debug/prototype a bot with the same version of robocode and rumble.

time to initiate the scratch

I also think it's definitely better to switch to new versions, because if we still wait longer, the statistics will be more and more out-dated.

Most people probably already updated their Robocode version like me, and as I see, very few people uploaded battles in the last month (I am also waiting for my new bot Remedy to appear in the stats for 2 weeks now, but I cannot upload battles :( ). So the earlier, the better.

Cb, you should see stats for your bot now.

I previously excluded it in my client, since earlier version of Remedy use to hang. Since I was the only one who were uploading new battles you were excluded from updates. Now it should be fine, just make sure that in future your bot does not have to many skipped turns which is a sign of slow and non responsive bot.

Suggestion about switching to newer versions.

If literumble kept separate average scores for each version on each pairing, it could support multiple versions at the same time.

And, maybe, using the version of the last upload on each pairing as the main version. Contributors could gradually upgrade their clients without need to reset the whole database.

Unused old version stats could be deleted after some time to free space.
