I have a problem with my code, but I cannot figure out what it is. I am calculating the ticks left until my gun heat is 0, which should be (gunHeat / gunCoolingRate). Then I normalize this from 0 to 1 by dividing by the maximum possible ticks until gun heat equals zero (maxGunHeat / gunCoolingRate), but I am getting values of 1.4 and 1.3 sometimes. Here is my code:

double ticksUntilFire = (robot.getGunHeat() / robot.getGunCoolingRate()) / 
(Rules.getGunHeat(Rules.MAX_BULLET_POWER) / robot.getGunCoolingRate());

I know that is redundant, but I will optimize later. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?--AW 01:06, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

I believe that at the beginning of rounds, robots start out with a gun heat greater than that generated by a power 3 bullet. That could be your problem--CrazyBassoonist 01:31, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
