Compiled but can't see...

I set up a robot project on my NetBeans. I loaded the robocode libraries, etc. All this seemed to go successfully. I can even compile my robot class with success. I also pointed robocode to the directory my robot class is in.

But my robot doesn't show up in the robot list for fights!

Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hi! How you "pointed robocode to the directory my robot class is in"? What this directory contents? Do you added ${}.properties file? Which package are you use?

      Thanks for the reply!

      I added the directory, "C:\MyRobots\build\classes\zjk", to development options. In that directory is only the class file, "drag0.class"

      Okay, since you mentioned properties file, I looked around (I don't see any ${}.properties file). I tried adding the other directories above the one mentioned above and it still doesn't work. how is a .properties file generated and what is its purpose?

        The .properties file is added to the JAR when you package your bot, but it shouldn't be needed in order to see a development version of your bot. I'm not sure, but I think you'll need to add the top level directory in Robocode - e.g., if your bot is zjk.MyRobot, under ...\build\classes\zjk\, you'd need to point Robocode to ...\build\classes.

        I have my things setup the other way, with Eclipse compiling the .class files into robocode/robots/, but that's kind of a stupid setup that I've just never bothered to change.
