Bot Name






What's special about it?

It's a wavesurfing minibot. AFAIK, it is the only WaveSurfing minibot to have double-buffered stats =)

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?

[Download Directory]

How competitive is it?

It beats Komarious, which is good enough for me =)

How does it move?

A fairly simple WaveSurfing, based off of BasicSurfer, segmented on LateralVelocity, distance, and forward-wall proximity. It also has an unsegmented buffer to help avoid all those simple guns.

How does it fire?

The gun was ripped out of Waylander, and then completely restructured. The changes will be merged back into Waylander at a later date.

How does it dodge bullets?


How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?

Don't try running this on a field not 800x600, it will freeze if it gets placed outside of this area! But besides that, there is no difference ;-)

How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?

the first one it sees

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Between rounds, GuessFactor data for movement and pattern data for gun; nothing between matches

Where did you get the name?

Cunobelin was a Celtic king, and a semi-fictional novel was written on him by David Gemmell. It is believed that many of the stories of King Arthur are based off of Cunobelin's exploits, and in the novel he wields a Sword of Power, based off of the legends of Excalibur.

Can I use your code?

Under the following terms:

What's next for your robot?

Um...surfing multiple waves (if I can fit it), precise bot-widths (if I can fit it), I'll think of something if I can free up the codesize. I'm at 1498 at the moment, after adding the precise energy tracking that I had forgotten earlier, and a lot of shrinking.

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Let's see =)

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Comments, questions, feedback:

I'd forgotten until now to check where this ended up - nice work! -- Voidious

Thanks! Unfortunately there was no room to put GoTo? surfing.... but I now have a list of bots that I need to test the next version against! Watch this space! -- Skilgannon
