I started tinkering with Robocode back in 2006 when it was at version 1.1.3. It's been quite awhile since I last used it, but I've recently been getting into it again. This time, I actually released a robot into the 1-on-1 competition. My latest robot is named XanderCat.

Professionally, I have been doing enterprise Java development for over a decade. I stay pretty busy with work and family, but from time to time, I am able to put a little time into recreational activities like Robocode.

My Robot Frameworks

  • Xander Framework - My newest robot framework with pluggable guns, radars, and drives.

My Bots

  • Nissa - Simple robot that is not very smart but excels at avoiding simple linear targeting.
  • Rowdy - MegaBot based on the Xander Framework. This robot is a simple wave surfer and guess factor targeter using a fixed segmentation combination of lateral velocity and bullet travel time.
  • Simon - Twin to Rowdy. Very similar to Rowdy, but Simon prefers to avoid linear targeting as opposed to Rowdy who prefers to avoid head-on targeting.
  • XanderCat - MegaBot based on the Xander Framework. This is my flagship robot, and attempts to make the best use of the most advanced concepts and Xander framework capabilities.

I will likely create a few other specialty robots and release them, but XanderCat will always be the flagship of the fleet.
