Wow, v 3.15.155 beat Shadow, Dookious, GresSuffurd, Ascendant, Etna, Firebird, WaveSerpent!:) Crossing my fingers...:) --Jdev 08:53, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to say nice job with Tomcat - I only just noticed its strong performance against top bots. 57% vs both Dookious and Pris, and giving Diamond some tough battles (which is what caught my eye) - very nice! Might be time to throw it into my test bed. =) --Voidious 22:18, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, Voidious:) And here big room for improvements, so be careful;) And Diamond already in my test bed:)

Congratulations for making the top 20. I've been trying to catch you with XanderCat, but so far you have remained consistently a few steps ahead of me. :-) Your scores against Pris and WaveSerpent are amazing. I finally came up with a flattener that helps me against the top bots, but I'm still a long ways from where you are at. I can't seem to find any way to improve my scores against DrussGT, Diamond, or Scarlet. -- Skotty 23:11, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, Skotty:) Breath of XanderCat is like wind in Tomcat's sail:) --Jdev 04:25, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Very nice work! Looks like Pris has a new nemesis... --Darkcanuck 03:58, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Congrats from me, too - and to Skotty as well! You guys have really stormed up the rankings of late. It's great to see so many active bots at the top of the rumble. --Voidious 04:12, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you too:) I think soon breath of Tomcat will accelerate Nene and we make our own TOP-3 with black jack and... you know:) --Jdev 04:25, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Good job on top 20. I remember how I felt when I broke that. But I think you are expecting a bit much from Nene's developer. I haven't been particularly active since reaching 11th-ish with Nene. — Chase-san 05:20, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Chase, let speak, when Tomcat will be at 14-13 place:) --Jdev 05:27, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately you are now riding the exponential difficulty curve from 20 up. — Chase-san 08:18, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
I know, but i did not implement yet bullet shielding, multiply wave surfing and really good movement yet. Also i didn't put any effort in gun improvement --Jdev 08:25, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Top-5 ! Congratulations ! You really rocketed up the rankings. --GrubbmGait 12:15, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, but it's not the end - i'm pretty sure, that i get 3rd place after my vacation:) And then i will take part in race for throne, i hope:) --Jdev 13:19, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Way cool! Go for that throne. -- PEZ 13:38, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Wow, congrats dude! Yes, yes, please go on vacation now. ;) --Voidious 14:05, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Oh nice, passing Scarlet, nice work. I suppose it is high time I got back to work and finished writing my robot... Is what I would like to say, however my movement has so many things I have planned for it, and getting any one of them done requires a complete redesign (again). But they should really push her up the ranks. (Also Nene uses a gun from 2004, should fix that eventually) — Chase-san 15:08, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Oooh, congrats! Maybe I should try to find time amongst class keeping me busy...

Thanks for all again:) And it will be cool, if my achievments encourage anyone to development:) --Jdev 09:29, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Just notice today, that i already have 137 development versions on Tomcat
137 tomcats build versions.png
It's about 1.5 versions per day
Who has more?:) --Jdev 06:47, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

I have many, many more than that. =) -- PEZ 09:41, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

But it's number must be divided by 7-8 years:) --Jdev 10:00, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

True, but I have ratio of 2.6 bots per day since I activated Nov 1. =) -- PEZ 10:30, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Ok, you win:) --Jdev 10:37, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

And when do you both find the time to test these versions? Since I use RoboResearch I test more (1 per week), but improve less ;-P --GrubbmGait 10:45, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

For me quick test (1 battle against every bot in RR) takes about about 1.5 hours.
Also Distributed Robocode output intermediate results after every battle and i wrote simple program which can compare results between same challenges for different challengers, so i can stop testing early, if results after several tens of battles looks worse comparing to last release --Jdev 11:10, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

RoboResearch!! Wow, I had no idea. -- PEZ 11:19, 15 November 2011 (UTC) 

PEZ discovers RoboResearch? Better be prepared for CC's rank to shoot up ;) --Rednaxela 14:20, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

  • At least he will release less often. :-D But you're right, I fear for my skinthick top 10 position. --GrubbmGait 15:27, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure I'll release less often. =) I currently only have one machine (my laptop) that I can run battles with and I prefer to let it run rr@h. RoboResearch will come in handy of course. But I have to fix a problem with my RAM capsules, because right now I can't make RoboResearch run a full challenge. Don't think anyone needs to worry all that much about my bots for a while. I do have a few ideas on what would make a difference, but I really don't have time to realize them. Hence, I'm trying to squeeze out some performance gains from CC by making smaller "calibrations". -- PEZ 07:40, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
