Robocode Online Web Application - what do You think?
The highlighted comment was created in this revision.
I was wondering: why there is no serious website, where You can upload your bots, create rankings and tournaments and just battle. Rumble is fine, but be serious - it's has a few functionalities and it's NOT user friendly.
There is a question to all of You: do You want to have such web application? Possibility of uploading bots, instant fights, rankings, tournaments etc...
What would You expect from such application?
I am thinking about gathering a team. With that team we could create a nice webapp.
Guys, please think about it. share Your feelings and thoughts.
I've thought about this lately, particularly after implementing a web UI for my own programming game. I have a couple thoughts:
- First, the online Robocode community is pretty hardcore about bot programming. We have the RoboRumble in place that facilitates that perfectly. A user-friendly, non-IDE development UI is just not something that would grab these people the way it would grab programming beginners, if you ask me.
- I love Robocode, but... It's ancient. :-) I think you should build something for a new generation of users, not try to prolong the life of Robocode's current code base. Or even work with Fnl to implement this in Robocode 2.
Such a web app would be great for new people. But for new people, I think there are better alternatives.
