Oculus's movement fails. I can't download any of the movement challenges(All of the links are broken or the site is closed). I don't know how to be sure that it is improved. Are there key bots to test against?
- I found a proof that my movement is a failure. Here is a battle result against Raiko.
- dsekercioglu.OculusRaikoGun* 2437 (52%) 950 190 1151 147 0 0 19 16 0

You can try to download them from archive.org even when they are broken ;) Hope the links are archived.
Find the bot you think you're notably failing, enable some graphic debugging and watch some matches at different speeds. Go back to your code, wonder what the hell is going on. Repeat. That's how I fixed most of the bugs for my last release. Maybe It will work for you :P
I don't think that it is because of a bug. Every movement I make is really bad. My old bots were built on BasicGFSurfer so no bugs I think.
Hmmm, it's neural, right? Is there any case of success of neural surfing besides Darkcanuck's bots?
Looking at your results, I was quite curious about bullet shielders. It's the first time I actually understand this strategy, just watched a game. You get almost zero score against DrussGT, for example. It just sit there and block your bullets. I think I may safely assume those were all head-on shots. One thing I noticed is that DrussGT can't block Roborio, even though it was supposed to shoot head-on for the first shots, while there is no data. Does that mean that I'm not shooting head-on at all, right? That's weird...
What? On my computer SimpleBot got 42% against DrussGT 3.1.4.
And in the rumble it gets almost 100% against every BulletShielders, etc. EnergyDome, SpitFire.
One thing that is very important is that a BulletShielder needs to know the EXACT firing angles of your targeting. Even if there is a little deviation, it just don't work. That's why SimpleBot should has no problem with shielders.
