The current release of RoboRumble@home client has the following functionalities:

Downloading the source code and executables

You can download it from http://www.geocities.com/albert_pv/RoboRumbeAtHome.html Please always download the latest version.

You can download also codesize.jar from the site, if you don't have it installed.


Just extract the ZIP file into your root directory (or where you have robocode installed). The roborumble directory should be into the robots directory (I know it's not a clean implementation. If someone is able to port it to a different package outside robots folder it would be great. It's just that I don't have IDE and use Robocode editor, so it was easier).

Then make sure you have codesize.jar installed into your "robocode" directory.

Finally, run roborumble.bat or roborumble.sh from the command line to execute it.

Note that it will raise a lot of error messages if you are not connected to internet, but it should be OK.

For feedback use the /Testing page.

Notes and comments

Considering a GUI in RoboRumble/GUIDevelopment

Developing the server in RoboRumble/ServerDevelopment

SSO?'s problem, by the way, may also be because of Firewall software and stuff. I'm pretty sure that Norton Internet Security (and probably other similar programs) filter out HTTP headers including the HTTP_REFERER one, which has prevented me from playing certain online games in the past. -- Kawigi

My firewall does the same but I had no problems downloading the bots. -- Kuuran

I'll try to install it right away. But I will try not to have open a special port in my firewall for tomcat and instead try to proxy to it through the apache http server listening on port 80. While doing this I might screw things up and make the wiki unavailable for short time frames. It was a while since I did a proxy setup like that... -- PEZ

created RoboRumble/Testing5 since I'm in need of some help :/ -- FnH

For people using a proxy, you'll need to add

-Dhttp.proxySet=true -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxy.pandora.be -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080
to tha java-startup-commandline to make the downloads work ...

It would be more userfriendly if these settings could be entered in the roborumble.txt file. -- FnH

I've put the following in the bat-file and now it can run all night :)

cd robots
java -Xmx100M -cp .;../robocode.jar; roborumble.RoboRumbleAtHome ./roborumble/roborumble.txt
goto run
-- FnH
