Just a simple question from Gibbs fifth rewrite: does robocode create a new instance of the robot every round or only once each battle? --Navajo 00:40, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Every round. If you just use the instance from the first round, some stuff might still work, but it's only a quirk of Robocode's internals that this is so. (And it may not always work, if they change those internals.) --Voidious 01:04, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

As i understand it, as of recent history, the internals are changed so less would work with the old instances. Also, keeping the old instances how has a much higher cost in the engine than it used to (leads a couple old bots that abuse it REALLY bad to have performance issues). The latest version of Robocode ( also gives a big warning if a running bot has kept an old instance reference. --Rednaxela 08:10, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
