My Axe Contest Entry
« on: September 16, 2010, 02:19:15 am »
Here is my Axe Contest Entry.
Although it never got entered.
But it would have...

A.I. Reversi




Source is attached.
prgmA holds the engine, prgmAAA holds the A.I.
prgmREVRSIAI is the compiled native ASM program

Attached is also an animated screenshot of the A.I. in action.

sweet!
i love the use of gray; especially the sweeping search effect

your ai put up a pretty good fight, too(although it just let me have the corners. does it just check for the most it can possible flip in one turn?)

The AI only has 2 parts to it right now.

[1] weighted values for all the board squares
[2] edge routine to maximize successful edge capture

That is very cool. Did you just not have time or something to enter it on time?

Only thing I found was that that picking the level is weird. Either it's too responsive and skips numbers, doesn't respond enough, or something weird.

I always sucked at this game :P

well the current set up is a good one. it's thorough enough to not be annoyingly easy and fast enough to not be annoyingly slow. props

Darn now if only that could have been entered in time, it would have been a good competitor. It looks pretty nice and you seem pretty great at Axe so far.

THing to remember for myself next year: not choosing 12 AM or 12 PM as announced deadline hour. I thought most people knew what both were but I guess I was wrong. I also announced recently that the deadline was approaching fast and the exact amount of time remaining, but it looks like it didn't get through x.x. For next year 1 AM or 1 PM seems more appropriate x.x. However like this year the deadline announced will be one hour earlier than the real one (in the current case, the real one would be 1 AM of my time), because most people waits at the last minute to submit their entry, meaning they had risks of not getting it delivered in time (thanks to mail delivery). Until yesterday, we only had one entry submitted.

I'll probably try this when I get some time (hopefully after I am done judging the entries). It looks really cool. Sorry about the confusion caused by the deadline.

(to people who didn't follow IRC, he thought a day spanned from 1 AM through 12:59AM, not 12 AM to 11:59 PM, thanks to the confusions about AM-PM). I wish USA used the 24h system x.x
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

I misunderstood the deadline to mean 12AM on September 17.
As you can see by the post date, I missed the actual deadline by an hour.

The game runs a bit fast on emulator, but it should be perfect on a real calculator.

Oh ok. I'll have to try it out on my calculator later then. Great job on it though :)

As for the deadline, I think showing the deadline in multiple formats would be handy.

Awesome job!
It looks really impressive.

Use it anyways.  It'll be another form of reference, in case of any doubt.
Also, instead of AM or PM, try 12 noon or 12 midnight.  It's more clear.
Also, maybe add a sort of countdown on the main page so that people can tell how many hours and minutes they have left (approximately?)
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

Yeah but in the past, when I pasted logs from IRC sometimes, people were confused at what was 19:11 PM for example x.x. That said, they should prbly have gotten used to it a bit since the board is set to canadian french standard time format (day/month/year then 24h format) like the old board.

A countdown sounds good too, providing it won't slow down dialup/old computer users and won't require Flash or java, for example. I could maybe just have a counter that doesn't auto-refreshes, though, like KermMartian's Doors CS 7 signature a while ago.

Looks awesome! Great use of those grays. Too bad it wasn't entered in time :(

DJ: Right, 1 AM might be better, except you'd need to stay up an extra hour :P

Nothing stops you from releasing your entry before you go to bed, though :P

As for me I do not mind staying up late unless I work very early the next day (which is rare)
