AI Programmer Needed
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:00:16 am »
I have no experience with designing a good AI system, yet my Zelda game requires one. If someone would be willing to design such a routine, that would be great. In the AI, enemies must simply move toward the player and attempt to collide with you for damage. The enemies must rebound to the next impassable tile if they hit you or you hit them. If there is an item in the room some of them should move to protect the item, but this is optional. There are a few specifications as to what tiles an enemy may pass over and what tiles and enemy must move around. The game is coded in Axe, so an Axe routine would be great, but if someone would do it as assembly, I could use it as an inline assembly routine. Thanks in advance. I am making quick progress on the movement engine and tile-related event scripts.

I'd be interested in taking a crack at this. I'd need to see your source, though: along with detailed explanations of your data structures, routines, etc...it's hard to code something like this with zero information.
See you, space cowboy...

I understand. Not all of the source is complete though. I will pm you all information about how data is structured, as well as my tiles lists.

Hmm I think that should go in general help and support, actually, or maybe Axe, if your game is pure Axe. Unfortunately I cannot help much, because most of my previous AI attempts were really basic and my games had tiled movement.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

You could also try to get in contact with Nitacku. If I remember correctly he is pretty good at AI systems, but I haven't seen him around here lately.

He sometimes frequents IRC, but he is not very active.

Bah spent last twelve hours coding grayscale intelligent-word-wrap dialogue box/menu system. NO TIME FOR REQUESTS...

No sleep = no coherence. My bad. I'll post something here soon.
See you, space cowboy...

No worries. I'm still fussing over the graphics engine and RLE for the maps.

Do you mean you have troubles with the RLE compression? I think nemo posted a tutorial about that a while ago. You might want to check it out.

I have looked at it. It confuses me.

You could maybe ask him in PM or something or bump his thread and tell what confuses you and stuff, so he can elaborate? I personally was kinda confused too at first, although I didn't try much since I don't code anymore.
