YAAAAAI (Yet Another All Action Assault AI)

Two AIs, actually. :) Although I promised myself to give up making all action AIs, I couldn't resist and not try to exploit some new possibilities that are given by new filters. I tried many all action AIs, most of them stayed in the Diamond League, but two of them were lucky enough to get to Master...

Don't worry, I don't want it to be called "Harpen's bug". It's all yours! ;)

Re: ELO calculating bug (?)

I was looking for explanation in the wiki and here in the forum, but didn't found, so thanks for the answer. I was suspecting problem with difference between current ELO of the player and his ghost's ELO, but I see it's the K-factor, not the ELO itself. Now it's clear for me and yes, I can survive, ...

ELO calculating bug (?)

I lost a game against player with almost the same ELO (#951016) and lost 15 ELO points. Then I won a game against slightly stronger player (#951022) and earned only 13 ELO points. How is it possible? Shouldn't it be +16 in the second game?

Re: Cross-device sync temporary solution

I keep getting sync problem error message each time I start the game. Tried keeping local data, downloading server data and reseting local storage, but nothing helps. And I had a couple of crashes yesterday. Could you take a look at my account, GFX? Thanks in advance.

Re: Overheating

Actually overheating of Machine Gun is implemented as its' aiming time... Of course it should be after firing, not before, but when firing constantly it makes no difference.

Re: Attack closest enemy doesn't trigger for out of range enemies

I agree with Hairy Phil: attacking enemies out of range can be useful and I would like it to be possible. If it was a problem for newbies, you could add some kind of "compiler warning" in AI editor. Every enemy withing range is logically always closer than any enemy out of range. So the ar...

Re: I don't know how tagging works anymore.

Tags were close to completely useless before they were instant. I disagree, they were quite useful for me. On the other hand I haven't used them much, because "thinking" was taking too much time, so it seems they became even more useful in instant version. But that's what I have to find o...

Re: Moral support thread for our overlord...ehm dev!

Yes, the UI has been improved recently and it's very good. Actually I have never liked graphical programming much, because it can be a bit annoying (especially when the code is large), but Gladiabots' editor is the best I've ever used and I really like it. And now you can cut/copy/paste nodes and mo...

Re: YASAB (Yet Another Small Assault Brain)

Yeah, I know. The problem is that if I want to fit it into a small screen of my tablet and keep the nodes readable, I have to compress it that much. That's also the reason why my AIs usually don't have many nodes. And honestly these new colors make it even uglier and harder to debug - especially in ...

YASAB (Yet Another Small Assault Brain)

Hi there! Once again I had a fun with playing assaults only and getting to Master League, but I think I will abandon this idea and switch to something more sophisticated. I decided to publish this AI, because it's pretty compact (36 nodes) and it has some tricks in it newbies can find useful. (On th...

I can see "J.Harpen(zombi" in the statistics now. You can make it even shorter like "J.H.(zombie)" if the limit is the problem.
Thanks anyway. :)

Re: Cross-device sync temporary solution

I've lost against myself: 863039 :!: :o :lol: ;) The story is that after upgrading to Alpha 12 I had crashes and I decided to reinstall Gladiabots. I knew I would have to make my AIs from scratch again, but after so many changes in the game it seemed to be good idea: at least I don't have tons of ob...

Re: Assaults >= 3

I see your logic, but the code is executed from the shooter's perspective, so the "at short range from an enemy" here refers to a red bot, not a blue one as you describe. I mentioned the blue bot just to be clear, not to consider it as a reference point for the code. Anyway if it's not a ...

Re: Alpha 12 random maps all feel like a race now

I don't feel a race. I prefer to attack first and it seems to be a good tactic.

But on the other hand it's a bit annoying that you have to wait for few seconds till bots meet near the center of the map just because the teams start so far from each other. A wasted piece of time.
