Version History

  • 0001: I need to improved a lot, this version have 7 segments; log size of 1000.
  • 0002: Change LinkedList to ArrayList, increase the segmentation length from 7 to 18, increase log size from 1,000 to 10,000.

Todo List

  • Make a single string contains every log.
  • Examine what Virus does :-) DONE!

Help, does anyone have a TC calculator? The score above is just a roughly averaged by eyes score. I think the actual is much lower except the Total score, that was calculated with ScoreAveragedAddOns / 350. I know that the surf score is invalid. » Nat | Talk » 14:37, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Try RoboResearch - look on the old wiki for info. --Skilgannon 15:28, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Actually, don't look on the old wiki for RoboResearch, the new wiki page is more recently updated I believe. But yes, RoboResearch is very nice, it automates running all the battles, calculating the scores, and even generating the table row in mediawiki syntax :D (actually, challenges pages really should state to use RoboResearch). With the GUI version you can queue up multiple versions to test one after the other as you sleep too. --Rednaxela 15:36, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I usually don't download everything that I need to check out from SVN repository by my self :) I took an hour to find download link for RoboResearch and at last admit that I must checkout them from SVN. Question: Can I pause the challenge and resume it next time I turn on my computer? I am not allow to turn on computer while I'm sleeping. » Nat | Talk » 00:53, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

RoboResearch saves battle results in a database as it goes and doesn't re-run unnecessary battles. In fact, if two different challenges have an exactly overlapping pairing it won't repeat the battles unnecessarially. Also, the GUI version (which I highly recommend) stores currently running challenges in a config file so it's super-easy to close at any time and continue running later. In summary that answer to your question is: Yes :-) --Rednaxela 01:10, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

If I do bit shifting to fit the data into 8-bits link this:

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
  L     D   a W 
  e     i   c a
  t     s   c l
  e     t   l l
  r     a
  a     n
  l     c

With this I can have up to 7 velocity segment, 7 distance segment, 2 acceleration segment and 2 wall segment. It can fit every segment into one character. Do anyone have idea how to cut the string as per SDS? Or just char & 0xFE or 0xE0? One more, what is faster, doing kernel density or log it to an array and find max? » Nat | Talk » 01:36, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

LinkedList is super slow. I change my code to use ArrayList(10100) and I can increase the segment and log size a LOT (see above). Let see 0002 with larger log size. And 0003 with non-firing waves.
