The next RealTimeBattle competition : November 2002
It has been a while since last competition. We are sorry if our work has been a
bit slack this year, and we really hope it's going to be better soon.
As it is the begining of school and that most of us doesn't have a lot to do (come on, it is always the case at the begining of the year !!!), I think I can organize a competition, and that YOU can take time to program your new, brillant robot (or take your old floppy disk at the bottom of a dusty drawer).
So, it is time for the next competion ; What are the rules ? :
Of course, this is competition of honour, where you have nothing to win but self
The rules of the competition are as follows:
Please register a robot by sending an email to
with the name of the author, the author's email-address and the robots name. Please use 'RC2002' as subjectline.
- You don't need to send you robot before November the 17th as the tournament will take place during the last week of November, but please, register as soon as possible for us to be able to schedule everything.
- The robot should be compilable, executable or runnable. Any language
is allowed, but please tell us what tools we need to make it run.
- Executable robots should be in linux ELF format copmied with either
libc6 or libc5.
- If we can't get the robot to run, we will notify the author.
- The options used are the good old ones in this rtbrc
- Two arena will be used :
I will allow 2 of your robots to be concidered as one robot for the final score
if don't fill like programming a polyvalent robot.
- the old circle.arena
- and a new one, Maze.arena, because I'm tired of this
stupid robots who just shut ;-)
- The games will have a timeout of 5 minutes (300 seconds).
- The games will use absolute coordinates.
- The competition will be split into two parts.
The first part with only duels, i.e. 2 participants per game.
The other part 7-10 robots are competing per game.
Both will take place in the 2 arenas.
- The winner will be the robot with the lowest sum of position in
the different parts. If two or more robots have the same score, a decisive
game will be run to pick out a unique winner.
- Maximum number of total participanting robots is 100 (haha).
- The same person is only allowed to have 3 robots in the competition. (this
upper bound may change).
- How the competiton is held, i.e. which robots meet each other and how much
they get, will be announced later when we see how many robots that is participating.
Here is a list of the robots that are supposed to run for the title :
