Bot Name

Virus 0.5 to 0.6.1 - Jul'05


by Albert.

Jamougha is the author of RaikoMX, so you could say he is (unwilling :-)) co-author of this bot.



What's special about it?

There are some bots that use Raiko movement. But I don't know of any one that *uses RaikoMX*. This bot is just an experiment, extends RaikoMX and overrides some methods to implement the aiming algorithm.

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?


How competitive is it?

It reached the 13th position in the RoboRumble.

How does it move?

Hehe... just check RaikoMX page. It's movement is like a black box to me.

How does it fire?

Uses flexible StatisticalTargeting with a kind of DynamicSegmentation?. I like it very much to create new names, so I call it SymbolicDynamicSegmentation.

How does it dodge bullets?

You will have to check RaikoMX page :-)

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

It is a 1v1 bot.

How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee?

It is a 1v1 bot.

What does it save between rounds and matches?

For now, its gun doesn't save anything. I don't know if RaikoMX saves something about movement.

Where did you get the name?

Like the real virus, it is not complete, so it needs a host to live.

Can I use your code?

Yes. It is released under RWPCL license.

What's next for your robot?

Improve its gun.

Does it have any WhiteWhales?

Will see.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

I would not say it is based on RaikoMX, but clearly uses it.

Comments, questions, feedback:

By the way, I tried to get Virus to run the TargetingChallenge2K6... I actually got it all (seemingly) working, despite the weird way it extends RaikoMX =), but at some point it started getting "index out of bounds" exceptions. (Sorry, I don't have the exact error.) If it's not too much trouble, I'd be really interested to see its score, and I would run it myself if you uploaded a TC-challenger version of it. If I can find the error it was getting, I'll post it here, as it would probably be an easy/stupid fix. -- Voidious
