Tron 3.11 seems broken in current Robocode/Java versions?
The highlighted comment was created in this revision.
I'm unsure why, but I'm noticing that Tron 3.11 is currently broken under Robocode 220.127.116.11 and OpenJDK 11. It seems to always start up in "Reference" or "Challenge" mode, never in "Normal" mode. This is the reason for Tron's recent underperformance against updated/new rumble entrants. Need to figure out the cause of this. There's a good chance this could point to a regression in Robocode.
UPDATE: Confirmed that Tron is working fine in 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124, but not in Robocode 126.96.36.199. This is unfortunate and I doubt Tron is truly the only bot affected.
