New bots!

Post by Tank Program » Fri Apr 01, 2011 12:00 am

Yes, at long last the bots have been improved. Tired of them going into boxes and killing themselves? Or of making impossible turns? It's problem solved. The old code has been ripped out and replaced with a new learning algorithm that matches the bots to your level of play. Learn together with gLATIS. (That's the g from the class name, and LATIS from Learning Artificial Tron Intelligence System.) gLATIS looks at every situation where it dies, and then learns from it. The next time it's alive and faced with a decision point, it looks at its history and finds the closest parallel it can and acts on it. Nothing can go wrong.

I've been waiting for this day. The old AI was just too predictable and boring. This is already closer to playing a human, and it hasn't even had much to learn yet. Positive side effect: it also works on the client, so you can test server quality more easily. :)

Don't tease Tank, you know I love bots more than people. You're breaking my heart here - I need to see them in action!
