« on: April 26, 2005, 05:13:45 PM »
I have had a chance to play around with some of the new sysvars today so I modified Hunter 2.2 a little.

I give you Hunter V2.3

It ran the entire F2 league (except for Excalibur) like a hot knife through butter.

Still can't quite beat Excalibur though  :(

No more time today so Hunter will have to stay the way he is for now.

For some reason as soon as I add any shell, the thing starts behaving like a complete retard.
I trashed the shell gene in the end in favor of staying fast and light.

Code: [Select]
cond

50 .shootval store
0 .venomcounter store
stop

-5 .shoot is poison, I assume you want -3 .shoot instead

I wondered why the venom wasn't working right  :lol:

That part was added as a bit of an afterthought really. I didn't spend much time really ironing it out.

As you may have figured out by now, the venom is designed specifically to neutralize any robot using powered up shots. They will be changed into -2 shots.  B)

Of course it would help to use the right shoot value though

I fixed the venom shot as suggested by Light and re-ran the league.

This time Hunter beat Excaliber 26 to 13 to take first place in the league.

YAY!!!  :boing:   :laugh:   :party:

Trouble is that Hunter V2.3 is a truly un-elegant bot now. He is messy and inefficient. He kills as many of his own kind as the enemy does but basically kicks ass in a fight.
He is an evil viscous monster that disgraces the Hunter stable, bit like a dirty fighting Sumo Wrestler. He gets the job done but I don't like what he had to become to do it.  :(

Hopefully I may be able to refine him a little without him losing his edge.

Congrats, PY.

What happened to your avatar? Is it just me or did your avatar disappear?
No one else seems to have commented about this. I hope nothing strange is happening in my PC.

His avatar's always been having trouble on my compy.  I'd say it only shows up 60% of the time.

But yeah, I haven't seen it for a while either.  Maybe the server that hosts it is having an anyeurism?

My avi was there yesterday.

I think I might have to move it (again).
The thing is that it works perfectly and all the time on other forums which access the same host site.
I have a cunning plan to fix it once and for all. Just hope it works  :D

Yup that fixed the stupid thing in place. I uploaded it directly to the forum instead of linking it.
Now it has to work properly  B)
