- 0001: I need to improved a lot, this version have 7 segments; log size of 1000. (Result in progress)
- 0002: Change LinkedList to ArrayList, increase the segmentation length from 7 to 18, increase log size from 1,000 to 10,000. (Result in progress)
- 0003: Now use 22 000 log size with non-firing wave. (22 000 is the largest log size with acceptable skipped turn rate NOTE: a movement is not yet processed) (Result in progress)
- Make a single string contains every log.
Examine what Virus does :-)DONE!
- Make it faster.
- Use Kernel Density instead of an array to find firing angle
- If there are less than 2 matches, consider not to use that segment and truncate once more.
- If use only firing waves, match only when low gunheat (0001 and 0002 match every tick)
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 e
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 with larger log size. Anyway 0003 is faster than 0001 » Nat | Talk » 14:41, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Do I need to publish code for each research bot? I can have them on my page in a minute, but not sure if I need, or anyone want. Note that this research have codename Astraea. All the bot is Astraea with SDSxxxx version number. (OK, at first it is a competition robot, but I can't find better, but not the best, wave surfing to plug in + it really slow so it is now a research. In fact, a entry Astraea DEV in TC2K7 fastlearning result is really a SDS0001) » Nat | Talk » 14:41, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
