This is just Aspid reloaded with a new StatisticalTargeting gun.

Release 0.5 (Nov 2003) is just a first try, trained only with a few rounds against close competitors, to see how it behaves in "real life".

Release 0.5.2 (Nov 2003). Just found a bug in the movement and corrected it.

Release 0.6 (Feb 2004). Discontinued the StatisticalTargeting gun and replaced it by a long-wave pattern matcher.

How does it move?

Uses the same movement as Aspid.

How does it fire?

It uses a SymbolicStatisticalTargeting? gun. It is just an StatisticalTargeting gun, but it borrows the "symbolic" concept from pattern-matchers to have the flexibility to easily segment the enemy data in whatever fashion I want. It will give me the ability, in the future, to segment different enemies using different strategies.

In fact, this gun is (will be) a combination of BestPSpace, SymbolicPatternMatching and StatisticalTargeting.

From v0.6 it doesn't uses an StatisticalTargeting gun anymore. I just found out that statistical targeting is really boring and returned to PatternMatching. It uses a quite experimental multiple-choice one that tries to lock into the long term movement pattern, not in the short term ones.

How does it dodge bullets?

No dodging at all.

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

Aspid is a OneOnOne bot. It hasn`t melee strategy.

Where did you get the name?

Just from Aspid and the movie - now it is a bit outdated :-(.

Can I use your code?

I'm not releasing the code, but I have no problem to share the ideas, so just ask.

What's next for your robot?

Improve gun and movement, and make it a mini (if possible).

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Aspid, NanoLauLectrik and LauLectrik.


Albert, I am not sure if you are aware of this but Aspid and its little brother gave me fits for over 2 months trying to figure out how to beat them. If you manage to morph this bot into a problem bot again I may just blow up my computer =^>. -- jim

Je, je ... I hope. -- Albert

there is probably a bug somewhere in the gun. try using it against Aleph. I think a PM gun without bug shoud be able to fit this pattern. -- rozu

Thanks, I'w check it. -- Albert
