AI Bots II is a programmer's game. Instead of playing
the game directly, players are required to write a
program to do it.
There is an arena where two teams of players (called
bots) are loaded. Each team needs one program,
multiple instances of which will control each player
of that team.
You can spend hours on this game optimising your program
for a particular arena.
Some of the features of AI Bots II are:
Visit aibots sourceforge project page :
- You write your program in C/C++.
- You are given a header file aibots.h
which you have to include in your program and a
c file aibots.c which you have to link to
your program. These provide certain basic
functions to control a bot in an arena.
- Your program runs parallely with the game.
- Your program communicates with the game
server (combat server) through the predefined
functions in aibots.c and aibots.h
- You are given tools to analyse the
co-ordinates of various points in the arena.
- You have to write just one program, multiple
instances of which control different bots of
