I changed the wallsmoothing technique to the more efficient version i used in Engineer. I'm also experimenting with different rolling depths and weightings in the surfing.
I think i've worked all of the bugs out of the new gun that i tried in version DS1.0, so i'm giving it another shot. I have no idea what will happen, but it'll probably plummet in ranking :)
More gun segmentation tuning and I changed the threshold for waves to break. General Ranking: ? PL Ranking: ?
The bug in the last one was pretty hard to track down. I think its fixed now. General Ranking: 11 : 2036 PL Ranking: 9 : 409/0/8
Some gun tuning. EDIT: I may have just found an important bug... Yep, there's definitely an off-by-one error in the segmentation. General Ranking: Withdrawn PL Ranking: ?
I'm trying out a new gun segmentation dimension. General Ranking: 9 : 2039 points PL Ranking: 11 : 406/0/11
Some distancing experiments. There's definitely a possibility that this one could be a disaster. It gets much better MC2K6 scores than previous versions because it generally stays farther away. But that really tells me nothing in terms of rumble performance. General Ranking: 13 : 2025.49 points PL Ranking: 13 : 403/0/14
Major surfing overhaul. I converted the wavesurfing to use relative GFs and also did some segmentation changes. It may need some more tuning. General Ranking: 13 : 2019.75 points PL Ranking: 14 : 401/0/17
Some surfing changes. General Ranking: 14 : 2018 points PL Ranking: 12 : 404/0/15
A bugfix in the gun as well as some minor restructuring. General Ranking: 13 : 2008 points PL Ranking: 15 : 402/0/19
Complete resegmentation of the GF gun. It is improved significantly against non-surfers, but is weaker against surfers than the previous versions. General Ranking: 13 : 2011 points PL Ranking: 15 : 403/0/18
I converted the gun to use relative GuessFactors rather than absolute GFs. PH scores a few percent better against some of the TC2K6 bots this way. I think the segmentation needs some tuning now, but I wanted to establish a baseline with this release. General Ranking: 1989 points(yuck) PL Ranking: I forget
I finally got around to adding consideration for all waves when surfing. It used to only use the closest. General Ranking: 13 : 2000.86 points PL Ranking: 12 : 409/0/15
