A robot that isn't limited in its codesize, but is penalized for it. In the RobocodeLittleLeague, there is a FemtoBot division in which all battle scores are divided by the codesizes of the two contestants. For instance, let's say you have two robots, appropriately called RobotA? and RobotB?. They battle and come up with RobotA? winning the battle 4000-3000. Who won the battle? Let's say RobotA? is 100 bytes and RobotB? is 50 bytes. Their Femto-battle score would now be 40-60 in favor of RobotB?. Their scores in the RobocodeLittleLeague would now be calculated as if RobotB? got 60% of the total score for the battle.

Is the formula to adjust the smaller size score 'small bot score' * 'big bot size'/'small bot size' ? -- Albert

I'm not sure if I understand what you're asking. Just take the ELO-based function from Paul's website, and substitute robotscore1/robotcodesize1 for robotscore1, and robotscore2/robotcodesize2 for robotscore2. At some point, that means the % of total score for a bot is (botscore/botsize)/(botscore/botsize+enemyscore/enemysize). -- Kawigi

Heh, if it were possible to make a bot with 0 in codesize, would have some funny results. Quietus
