What I mean to say is that for a gene that isn't activated, the net result is no change to the stack

Not in mutated bots.  They can have a condition like this:

cond
25
34
24
124
345
5683
4
34
start
blah
stop

This would fill up the stack regardless of whether the gene is executed or not, right?
You're absolutely right!

What was I thinking?  :wacko:
There are 10 kinds of people in the world

Those who understand binary.

and those who don't

:D PY :D

I think we need the kind of debugging tools that VB has.

Run to cursor, set up break points, that sort of thing.  That way you can really concentrate on specific genes while ignoring genes that you aren't interested in.

Hows about a way to trace mutations backwards and find out what the mutation was, how many generations have had that mutation, how many bots now have it etc etc

How about:
  • In the Script system: the ability to let DB play a sound or popup when a script is activated; so you know when a bot evolves something.
  • Colour (as a verb) Mutations in the DNA window; new mutations in red, older ones in blue

Umm... correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't that refer to your comment too?

Anyway, welcome to the forum

And here is my two cents:

The mutation coloring is a wonderful idea.  Actually, we could probably color, or even format the text in the DNA window so that it shows the different mutations.  We could even probably allow for a type of tool-tip to appear when hovering over mutated DNA, which might show the details on that sections past mutations.
So, what will it be? Will you submit to my will, or must I bend reality to suit my needs?
Better answer before I do BOTH!

There's something fishy going on here.  Three posts by three new members.  The post content is really non sequitor.  And roughly identical across all instances.  In a post that was essentially dead.

I'm deleting the users.

Some spammer testing code? Next thing to pop up will probably be an invitation for some dubious site where penis enlargement can be achieved.

Yeah I was wondering about those posts also. I have deleted a few topics and banned some spammers (who were much more blatant than these) over the last few weeks. If I'm remembering correctly they were all posts in Web Site stuff section. Maybe its time for reCAPTCHA for registration?  Though the current one is already painfully hard.

Edit: Just went to check out the CAPTCHA again, it currently is reCAPTCHA

Yeah, it's using reCaptcha atm.  And there wasn't anything overtly spammy about those posts or users, so I dunno what's up.  My guess is a delayed thing, where after a few months they then go in an change the signature or text or something like that.

Also, when you ban/delete spam, send me a message about the user so I can keep tabs on spam traffic.  When it spikes it tells me I need to rethink spam controls.

I hate to admit, but I was wrong. The dubious site was not for achieving penis enlargement it was for combatting erectile disfunctions. Sometimes I think the only way to get rid of spammers is by DOSing the sites consistently and immediately. Forget the capcha, hit them where it hurts. If spamming cost them more hits than it brings...
