This is a utility I made for generating RoboRunner (previously, RoboResearch) test beds. I've manually created quite a few test beds with a similar process to this so I finally got motivated to make a tool to help me do it.

Setup

It's a Perl script, so you'll need to have Perl installed. On any Unix/Linux system, you probably already have it. You'll need to edit a couple of things at the top of the file:

  • Location of Perl on the first line.
  • Location of your RoboRumble directory.

This is intended to run from your main RoboRunner directory, but doesn't have to be. If it is, it will copy bot JARs from the RoboRumble directory into the bots directory, and the -o option will let you output a challenge file to the challenges directory.

Just make sure the file is executable ("chmod 755 bedmaker.pl") and you should be good to go.

There is a blacklist near the top of the file to exclude bots that I've found throwing exceptions or running slowly, neither of which are good for testing. You can modify that list as you see fit, of course.

Usage

Usage: ./bedmaker.pl -n # -r <rumble> [OPTIONS]
    Create a randomized Robocode test bed from Rumble bots. If run from main
    RoboResearch directory, will also copy the chosen bots from RoboRumble
    directory into ./robocode_bots and (optionally) create .rrc challenge file.

    -n      Number of bots in test bed.
    -r      Which Rumble to use. Valid parameters: roborumble, minirumble,
            microrumble, nanorumble, meleerumble, minimeleerumble,
            micromeleerumble, nanomeleerumble, teamrumble, twinduel
    -min    Minimum APS for bots to include in test bed.
    -max    Maximum APS for bots to include in test bed.
    -ref    Reference bot pattern. If specified, the scores considered for -min
            and -max will be scores against the reference bot instead of
            APS in the chosen rumble. If multiple bots match the pattern, user 
            will be asked which to use.
    -o      Specify a filename to write the resulting challenge file to (will
            go under ./challenges directory). If omitted, challenge file will 
            be printed to the console.
    -f      Force defaults. If specified, no keyboard entry will be required,
            and defaults will be taken instead. For instance, if "-ref Tron"
            were specified, multiple bots would match and the user would be 
            asked to choose one; if -f is specified, the first match will be 
            used instead.

Usage examples

In case that's not totally clear, I'll go through a couple examples. First, a test bed of 10 bots from the top 100 (roughly) of the MiniBot Rumble.

./bedmaker.pl -n 10 -r minirumble -min 61.07

Next, a test bed of 5 bots from the main 1v1 Rumble that beat Diamond.

./bedmaker.pl -n 5 -r roborumble -ref Diamond -max 50
Fetching roborumble rankings... DONE.
More than one bot in roborumble matched pattern: Diamond
  [1] voidious.Diamond 1.444

  [3] jab.DiamondStealer 5
Which bot would you like to use? 1

Feature ideas

There are lots more ways we could optionally filter bots, but I've only thought of a couple for now:

  • Blacklist - Specify a list of bots (or packages or string patterns) that will be ignored from consideration.
  • Or, conversely, a whitelist that will only consider certain packages.
  • Target APS: Instead of (or in addition to) specifying a min and mix APS/score, specify an average APS/score to aim for.
