[ENDED] Code Golf - The Reboot #3
« on: June 15, 2015, 12:00:02 am »
Hello ladies, gentleman, and welcome to the third iteration of...
:evillaugh: Code Golf Rebooted! :evillaugh:
...not that its evil or anything... But any way, as you can see i am neither @JWinslow23 nor @pimathbrainiac,for my name is c4ooo, and if you are confused as to what is happening, I will explain. Basically, me Pimath and Winslow as well as others, will all be hosting the challenges in succession. If you are confused because you do not know what code golf is, please check out this thread: https://www.omnimaga.org/community-contests/code-golf-the-reboot-1/

So, as to begin, here is this weeks challenge:
Challenge #3: Cellular automation
You must wright a program that infinitely computes Conway's Game of Life. What is this Conway's Game of Life you may be asking? The Game (no not that game, Conway's Game) is "zero person" game in which the board is split into an infinite grid of square cells. Based on four specific rules, cell die or are reborn. These are the four rules, taken from wikipidia:
Quote
  • Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies, as if caused by under-population.
  • Any live cell with two or three live neighbours lives on to the next generation.
  • Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours becomes a live cell, as if by reproduction.
  • Any live cell with more than three live neighbours dies, as if by overcrowding.

Thus, a every pixel is a cell, and every turn the four rules must be applied to every pixel/cell to generate the new state of the game board. A cell is a "neighbouring cell" if it is adjacent to the cell, diagonals included. To know more about The Game, I highly suggest Wikipedia (It might be necessary for you to read the article, my summery of The Game is very brief): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_Game_of_Life. Mostly to give an advantage to calculators, i will add several rules your program must follow:
  • Every pixel on the screen must be an individual cell, white being dead and black being alive or vice verse.
  • The game board must consist of every pixel on the screen. eg "full screen"., However, the rule does not apply if there is a significant limitation in your language where this is simply not possible, like in Silver Edition TI-BASIC, or PICO-8.
  • The outer pixels do not have to follow the rules,If you want you make make them dead forever. Alternatively, you can make the board wrap around.
  • The game must start in a pseudo random configuration, loophole fix, courtesy @Runer112 "every cell's initial state must have a nonzero chance of being in each state and must be independent (barring reasonable PRNG limitations) of every other cell's initial state." No user input / cell manipulation is required.
  • Every iteration the program must obviously update the screen.

Scoring
All non-calculator programs will be scored through this counter: http://juju2143.ca/golf/
Assembly programs will be scored on binary size (excluding the header), and Basic/Axe programs will be scored based on-calc source size (once again, excluding the header).
Good luck, and may this contest automate you!

I think I know what my approach (in Ti-BASIC) will be. It will be very slow when golfed completely, and I don't think we should expect any of these to be of practical speed.

Do you mean CSE BASIC for the screen limitations?

I think you should specify a minimum screen size, because on any machine without a screen the solution is trivial: since there are no pixels, do nothing.

Hm, another graphic challenge. Gotta try the new PICO-8 0.1.1 out.

This is code golf so size > speed :)

Also AOTM i am still tweaking the rules based on some feedback i am getting on IRC so yea...

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

That's true, but for the OmnomIRC shoutbox. Otherwise, get a IRC client such as Hexchat or mIRC and point it at either irc.efnet.org or irc.omnimaga.org.

I don't really see why it wouldn't. It's pretty much Lua with a graphics library.

yeah, Ti-Basic already needs about a minute to update every pixel without doing any logic. I hope you're patient, c4ooo :P

Since Axe is also counted based on source code size now, I think I'm going to try that now.

Off topic response to an off topic post.  But it's related to forum etiquette.

As long as the posts are constructive and not spam. There is no such thing as spamming the forum. Post away! And to be honest it's actually recommended to post when ever possible. This way the questions,content is available to everyone. Not just the people active at the time!

Overall, I'm fairly happy with this question being sufficiently specified. However, I see one rule that should probably be specified further:

  • The game must start in a pseudo random configuration, and no user input is required.

As an example of abuse, a single cell placed pseudorandomly is a "pseudo random configuration," but not a very interesting one as every generation after the initial will just be entirely empty. You could fix this by specifying that every cell's initial state must have a nonzero chance of being in each state and must be independent (barring reasonable PRNG limitations) of every other cell's initial state.

Also, you may want to consider adding a minimum bound on FPS. I realize this is a code golf contest, but at a point, one has to say that an extremely slow game of life simulation is no longer an acceptable game of life simulation. I understand that this may make the challenge as currently specified more or less impossible in some languages, in which case you could consider extending the exception to the "full screen" rule. I would suggest something like a minimum of 0.1 FPS and allowing entries that cannot meet this at full screen to run on a square board with a side length of at least 16 and no less than the largest power of two that satisfies the minimum FPS.

Nahh, it have plenty of time  ;)
