Not so much against the rules as supposedly impossible.

Looks like you found a bug in our forum  :D

My only other option would be to restrict posting priveleges in the beastiary to admin only and you would have a new place to actually submit the robots. Then Moderators would move them to the right slot in the beastiary after running them through the correct leaugue(s)

Might actually work better that way with a separate stable for bots waiting to be entered.
Sounds like alot of work to me.  Just add a sticky instructing people to inform the community and clearly label any upgrades of their bots.  Sometimes small updates to a bot are useful.

Ah quit being a lazy bum Num. (ooh that rhymes :D )
You don't manage a league anyway.

Face it how often have new bots been posted in the beastiary lately?

I guess we could just apply it to the leagues.

Which ones would that be?

Sometimes a new version with a minor change stuffs up one or two bots that used to use a specific "feature" of the old version. It's usually pretty obvious though.

Hmm.. Nevermind.  For some reason, I though Equalite also had the problem.  But I just ran him, and he moved fine.  I must be going crazy  ;)

Hmmm.... And Prax is acting weird when fighting Ymir.  Maybe I should give Prax a good looking over.

He did have that problem when I ran him at home yesterday on 2.37. I made a note of it.  :wacko:

Alright, so it's not just me, then.  Heh.  I'll try to fix that and make other improvements.  Heck, if I can improve him enough, maybe he could beat Hunter 2.3.

Ymir has some tricky tricks in its bag of tricks.  It was my first bot, and I had too much fun screwing around with features.

But you had one or two advantages with Ymir.

Namely that you had just joined the programming team and thought up a few nice new tricks that could be programmed into the game.
Then you added the new code and designed a really great bot to make use of them.
Needless to say Ymir more or less took the leagues by storm with his dogfighter style. There are still only a handful of bots out there now that have mastered the technique. Hunter 2.3 being one of them.

It's about time you grabbed that top slot back. It's lonely up there on top of the league.  :lol:

Everytime I come out with a top bot, everyone else decides that they want to make a bot too :lol:

I think I've held it for a total of maybe 2 weeks.

Nice bot :)

Funny story about Prax and Canth, even during routine tournaments, evolution turns up.

Just out of curiosity does the .51 work correctly? I thought it had to be just a number... :unsure:

Not sure anymore what works and doesn't, Nums made the dna way more lenient than it was back in the day :D

Pretty sure it still needs to be .label and (no dot) number, but someone write up a test bot and let's find out.

dot number (.67) would be kind of pointless since the presence of a dot at the left of a DNA entry just lets the parser know that the following string is a label.

.67 would logically return zero since no label by the name of 67 exists.
