Title: TI-Planet Contest: The Treasure of Knossos
Post by: sammyMaX on June 25, 2013, 09:29:31 pm
(This should probably be in news)
TI-Planet is having a big programming contest, and this time it's to make an AI for the game Wumpus. The full description is http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=144685#p144685 (http://"here") but basically, you have to kill the monster with your arrow and get the treasure and then leave. The Lua script will only tell you information about your immediate surroundings though, so it's tricky  :P

I got that from Google Translate/English part of post, so could someone explain these things to me:
1. Is there a limit to n (number of rooms)? Because the window just looks ridiculous once n>16 or so.
2. Could someone please translate these two lines? They didn't do well with Google Translate:
"La seule chose interdite sous peine de disqualification est d'utiliser/modifier les autres fonctions ou variables préfournies par le script."
"soit l'opposé du numéro d'une salle voisine dans laquelle tirer une flèche pour y tuer le Wumpus"
3. What type of calculator will this be run on? Can I assume that it has Ndless r825 and that it's an Nspire CX or Nspire CX CAS (NOT a black/white calc)?

There's an English version just here. http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=144685&lang=en#p144685

Edit: Wait nevermind they didn't translated all of it. I'll translate those 2 phrases.

Edit2: "The only thing prohibited under penalty of disqualification is to use/modify variables or other functions pre-provided by the script."
"as in, the opposite of the number of a neighboring room in which to shoot an arrow to kill the Wumpus"

The English version doesn't provide all of the information that the French version does, though.

Yeah, didn't noticed. I edited my above post. (Because I didn't noticed you replied.)

So if you wanted to fire an arrow into room 6, you return -6?

I'd imagine someone from ti planet will crosspost news officially when they're ready. Hopefully the english translation of news will be edited so it's complete.

True. Is the contest heavily programming-oriented, though? We tend to post news more about calc-programming-related contests, although if a contest is calculator math-oriented or even involves making a calc design drawing, that can do as well I guess. Someone would have to post about it, though.

We were planning to post on Omnimaga as soon as the news and rules will have been translated to english :)

Is there a version of wumpus.tns that is compatible with OS 3.1? I am using OS 3.1.0.392 and I get an error telling me to update to the latest version of the OS. I want to use OS 3.1 because I want to use Ndless and program in C. (There isn't a version of Ndless for OS 3.2 yet, is there?)
