1.5 beats all the other Robots I know of (most of the time). I assume. Its scores against Kawigi's Girl range from 35-65 to 65-35 so the next few ExtendsRobotCompetitions? should be interesting.
i like the idea of a robot league,it's kind of like nano.--andrew
Yeah, I suggested a Robot League for RLL instead of femto or whatever. -- JohnDoe
It was a joke, Kuuran... --David Alves
I experimented with putting an unsegmented guess factor gun into Krazy. It didn't work very well, but I think if I added a few segments, it could show promise. I did, however, optimize it to beat Walls. -- Alcatraz
how can you do that? not enough scans.--andrew
@Andrew - I get a scan every 12 ticks or so and with the other 11 ticks I estimate the linear location of the bot based on the last scan. Kawigi's MiniBullet? class does this, actually. It's not great by any means, but it sort of works.
@PEZ - It's a lot easier to use setTurnWhatever? then turnWhatever, and I think if I were a beginner I'd rather learn Robocode using set commands. It's also very easy to program an AdvancedRobot that will beat the sample bots, and a bit harder with Robots. Figuring out when its best to turn/move/aim/scan is the difficult part.
OK, so i had the choice, write a robot for this competition or write an essay on the use of java RMI. After writing the title i decided on the robot. Hope this whets your appetite:

And PEZ you're correct, writing robots with blocking calls is much more difficult as you have to compromise so much, and consider the running order of operations. Fun all the same though... --Brainfade
Get Ralph uploaded quick! There's so few bots to test against, it's frustrating. I hope Jam can get some of those competition bots up soon. Anyway, the segmented GF gun was a complete failure. --Alcatraz
All in good time Alcatraz, i've got some changes i want to make. In the mean time:

I really like plain Robots, but I'm not too good at programming them. Therefore, I have a plan: NanoRobots! Extends robot only, and it has to be a nanobot. Basically, it is about who can come up with a simple strategy to rule them all. So now I don't have to know complex trigonomotry and 500 line codes, I just have to get a good concept. Hmmm... --Bayen
