I may have something here, but I am drained today and going on a date tomorrow. Saturday is our best bet. Once again, thank you for keeping me sane guys.

You gotta take care of yourself first buddy! We can always roll back to an earlier version if things are messed up. Best of luck and stay well.

Bots, I think you should take this weekend off and do what you feel you would like to do. You have no obligation to anybody here. You do this on your free time and I think you've done a great job! Lots of interesting improvements! I would say DB is pretty much finished now. It's the best A-life software that exist! It doesn't look like it's going to have any competition anytime soon. :-)

I just post bug reports to help out with the development of DB which doesn't mean people have to jump at it. You fix it when you have time. I also suspect I have a demon in my computer but that's my problem. Lol! I'm like a bug magnet for some reason.  :P

That mrate problem was caused for the following reason:

The program redirects to the robots folder if it can not find the robot in its current folder. The mrates data (on save) should redirect as well. However it was redirecting to a .txt file instead of a .mrate file (ding V8)

Also, I think I was a able to stabilize point mutations a little more to prevent overflows by reducing how much max time (in cycles) the program is allowed to make between point mutations.

Anyway, check out announcements post of version B to find version C.

Have fun. I am going to take the advice and take the rest of the day off.

On a serious note: Did that fix it?
