[OT] For those willing...



  • First off, I'm recruiting. Blatently. If this is some violation of the boards I appologize, I post this because I'm getting deperate. :frown:

    Basicly, for those of you who are interested, I was hoping that you would check out a little-know game named Robowar. It's a mac programming game that was made almost fifteen years ago, with it's own language "robotalk". I credit this game for nearly all of the programming skills I have today (I started playing around eight years ago). When the guy who originally made it graduated from college, he passed the opperatorship onto another, and so down the line. Recently, the line has vanished, and last April I became the (partially self proclaimed)new opperator. I've tried to live up to it, planning future developement and getting news out there. This is quite possibly a significant factor why I stopped posting here.

    Anyway, the address for my new, half-completed website is (url="http://"http://www.geocities.com/theo_robowar")http://www.geocities.com/theo_robowar(/url) . I loved this game and cythera, so hopefully some others here will too :). At the least, just check out the site and give me some feedback on its construction so I can have it in top shape before posting it in the mailing-lists.

    And no, I haven't wasted my summer to build this crappy website. I mearly began it last week. For those who remember from irc, my Diablo2 pictures website was a precurser to this.

  • Wow, you played it too? Cool. I'll host your web site if you want, on my lanset server. No ads/ geosite stuff.

    Did you author any bots that were released? I wasn't very good at the whole thing, mind, my best idea was a pair of bots that shot across and tried to get the enemy stuck in a corner whereupon they would try to kill it... It's been a long time, I don't remember much about it.

    EDIT: nevermind, I guess you don't have any ads. I thought geosites had ads...

  • Sweet! Geocities does have adds...really annoying ones that you can't close right away and are connected to the website so you can't just put them in the background...but I tried to make my site so they wouldn't be in the way too much.

    Yeah, I entered T20 and T21, got about 16th in T20 and 5th, 7th and 8th in T21 =)

    Just when did you play? Your corner strategy suggests...hmm...around T4 or T5? You should check it out...-huge- rule changes since then: dopple, neophysics, scoring changes.

    Well, I never entered them in a tourney, I just downloaded the bots from the net and pitted them agaisnt my own creations. I guess I have some reading to do if I want to get involved again...
