Version History



What's special about it?

Basically nothing

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


How competitive is it?

More competitive than my other bots :P

How does it move?

It reverses when Math.random() is less than some function of bullet flight time.

How does it fire?

Heavily segmented GuessFactorTargeting

How does it dodge bullets?

It hopes its random movement is flat enough.

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

It's much more confused and throws more exceptions in melee.

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

Probably whatever it sees first

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Betweeen rounds: targeting data. Between matches: nothing.

Where did you get the name?

Galba was a Roman emperor who ruled from 68 AD to 69 AD. Like many other emperors, his demise was quite violent.

Can I use your code?

Go ahead, but I'm not sure if you would want to.

What's next for your robot?

Flatter movment, better segments. Then, use its gun in a WaveSurfer

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

We'll see

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Based on wiki discussions of GuessFactorTargeting and RandomMovement. Inspired by Raiko,Aristocles, et al.

Comments, questions, feedback:

For a first version it's quite good. Wedged itself in between Fhqwhgads and DuelistMini in the general ranking even. -- PEZ

Thanks, PEZ. Having already released a couple of rather mediocre bots, I didn't want to put this one out until I actually got it to work. :P -- DrZ

The new version 0.121 can not be downloaded from the robocoderepository, seems that no jar-file is attached or something like that. Welcome back after your break! -- GrubbmGait

Thanks. I've uploaded it geocities instead.
