What's special about it?

Well, it's my first (and currently only) StopAndGo bot

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

How competitive is it?

At the time of writing (well, typing) this update, for 1v1 Rumble: 413 for General, in mini 179, in micro, 109.

How does it move?

StopAndGo

How does it fire?

CircularTargeting

How does it dodge bullets?

Well, StopAndGo dodges bullets...for LT/CT that is. I'll have to shrink codesize if I'm going to add MusashiTrick...

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

1v1 only

What does it save between rounds and matches?

None.

Where did you get the name?

Well, it seems logical for a StopAndGo bot to 'evade' bullets...or at least try to

Can I use your code?

Sure, but only the code for version 1.0 was released

What's next/the history for your robot?

A rough planning...

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

In terms of % score, the worst bot against it is GrubbmGrb (only 1.2% score...) in General 1v1

What other robot(s) is it based on?

AFAIK none

Comments, questions, feedback:

Hey I'm just wondering - why would your .class file CodeSize be different than for the .jar file? They definitely "should "be the same. Maybe you're using a different compiler for the .jar? Jikes is well known for creating smaller .class files than the Sun Java, in case you didn't know. -- Voidious

Hmmm, got the codesize down to 596 with colors removed, 656 with colors (I set the colors 4 times in Evader to show the stop and go), I wonder how much space a small (working) WallSmoothing would take? --Starrynte (post edited)

Hmm, when I try to extract the jarfile for Raiko (to see the source) it says it's an "invalid or corrupt jarfile"...i'm using java -jar -xvf jam.mini.Raiko_0.3.jar in the correct directory...But [PEZ's iterative version] seem's to work, so thx. (btw, if you happen to know why Raiko cannot extract, I'll take a look at that too --Starrynte

Ok, version 1.2 released with WallSmoothing added, waiting for stable rankings... --Starrynte

What is "sensitivity to inactivity timer"? -- Simonton
