Re: Looking to start a C# AI - Approaches?

It sounds like Apache Thrift was a step in that direction, but then I didn't see any further discussion of it. I guess what I'm proposing is that as a community we pick some sort of open way that would make it easy to add additional language support, and then we work towards that goal. I don't know...

Re: Looking to start a C# AI - Approaches?

In web development, there's something called the OpenAPI Specification (formerly known as Swagger). It's a way of describing an API that makes it simple to generate a client for an API, in any language. There's code generators for all the popular languages, and it's not too difficult to directly con...

Re: Looking to start a C# AI - Approaches?

Honestly, AIs written in anything other than lua are kind of pariahs at this point. Gamedevs have zero control over non-lua AI, and those AI generally only work for a single game, if that. LuaAIs can be adapted and worked on after that author has long since abandoned them. A perfect example of this...

I agree, non-lua AIs remain current - that said, I can't see why anyone would write an AI in C# when you have C++ already available.
Because that developer likes C# better, or doesn't know C++? Everyone has their language preferences.

Re: Looking to start a C# AI - Approaches?

Is there anyone still interested in C#? I'm working on a Java AI but I keep finding myself wishing it was C#. The Thrift stuff sounded promising to me, but it's been six years now... In the time since anyone has last discussed a C# AI, .NET Core has become available, meaning that some of the Linux/M...

Re: Very very easy AI?

I'm in the process of writing an AI. It's very unsophisticated. It only knows how to build a couple unit types and doesn't how to search for enemies yet (other than drive South). If you're interested in playing against it, let me know and I can help you get it set up.

what do you mean with "this"?
I mean debugging to figure out what was wrong would be easier if it was able to give a more descriptive error message.

Re: Load External Java Library

It turns out that while my project was building successfully, the signalr-client-sdk.jar I was calling needed two additional JARs (Google's JSON library and Java Web Sockets library). This only became apparent at runtime once I made a standalone Java executable tried to use signalr-client-sdk.jar. M...

Load External Java Library

My AI deploys and runs without crashing. I want to utilize a library in an external JAR file (signalr-client-sdk.jar). I've placed the JAR file in the /jlib directory under my AI, alongside vecmath.jar and JavaOO-AIWrapper.jar etc. I add a line of code in my AI's init method instantiating an instanc...

please try again with >= spring 101.0.1-373-g9d13eb6
Unfortunately, that did not fix it.

Re: The call to initStatic() returned unsuccessfuly.

I'm having this same issue again. Tried leaving JAVA_HOME unset, tried setting it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_55\bin and C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_55.

No luck. Any ideas?

Re: AI Factory

I started the topic, perhaps I should have some say in what the topic is? Although I didn't mention C# in my original post, the intent of the post is "let's get a managed high level AI language working". Java or C# would fit the bill nicely Lua is higher than both of those. Name one reason to use a...

Re: AI Factory

That's the theory, not the practice. What happens in practice is developers use Windows-only classes and libraries that cannot be ported to Mono for legal (patents) or technical reasons. Mono is considered by many linux users/developers to be a bloated dependency with inherent portability and legal...

Re: AI Factory

I've never understood why Java developers make everything so complicated. What's wrong with exporting a basic set of proceedural functions or simple classes in the interface and letting AI writers apply their own abstractions (Factories, Getters, Services, Gateways, etc) on top of that?

Re: AI Factory

Slow AI's > not working AI's My views on this are that pureint was supposed to improve AI's. And maybe it has, but at the same time it's also made them unusable. So we need to modify Spring to make it easier to integrate AI's, or we need to modify the interface our AI's are using. Whichever is easie...

Re: AI Factory

A few days ago, my mind wandered back to Spring and I thought to myself "I wish I could write an AI in .NET". I'd settle for being able to write a functioning Java AI right now, that you can have more than one instance of. When I test my AI, it's much easier to put a bunch on the map and watch what ...

Thanks, that helped me narrow it down. Apparently every frame I was trying to access a List<Unit> that hadn't been initialized yet. I guess I was expecting a null reference exception.
