Robot Battle Programs
Here are some programs I've created for use with RB.
Perl round robin script
Unfortunately no development has happened with this program for many years. Currently one can run several matches automatically (and if you have 2 robots per match, the results file will display their scores nicely), but a full contest cannot be run. Click the title above to download it. It's approximately 18KB in size. Here is the latest readme.txt file.
- I'm making the source code for this available. If you find any of the code useful, feel free to use it for your own projects. Perhaps someone will even continue work on this program...?
Unofficial Robot Distribution Program (v1.22) - [11,084 bytes]
- This is Brad's original distribution program with a few extra features added to it. Version 1.21 has no code changes except what was necessary to converted it to work in MS Visual C++ 6.0. In version 1.22, I added prompting so that it asks before overwriting existing *.dst files, an option not to remove comments before scrambling, and an option that allows you to add a text message to the scrambled file. Most importantly, you can now select robots with long filenames by using file open/save dialogs common to Win9x.
