Contents 1 What is Robocode? A SkippedTurnEvent is generated into a robot’s event queue to notify advanced robots. I’ve done a bit of robocoding and found that wave surfing along with a pattern-matching gun is probably as good as you’re going to get against most bots, but it took me months to grok pattern matching and wave surfing to enough of an extent to cobble together a half-decent implementation.

Here, you will find the latest executables of the Robocode system. To alleviate potential problems with shared resources and thus potentially deadlocking or choking the simulation enginea very loose coupling is required between the battle manager thread and the robot threads.

Experiment with other robots in the sample collection, and see how DWStraight fares against them. We’ll resolve using onHitWall method.

The Robot Editor is a robcode text editor for editing the Java source files that make up a robot. You can use basic trigonometry to guess where the enemy will be when the bullet reaches them.
