Why not a nice looking graph of the stats like it was before? I have to use notepad to read this.

The *.stats files are just used for communication with the server. There are going to be graphs at some time. Just not sure how and when yet.

Steps needed to be done.

1. Bickering between bots and me about the format.
2. Some changes in client and serverIM to transmit data.

3a. Persist data and make graphs through a website
3b. Broadcast messages back to all clients and let the clients build a graph.

I think I'll at least persist data in a db. So there's a way to look back into history. Then look how to get a graph showing in a browser.

Not sure if I will broadcast data back to the clients. Then I would need to build a graph myself or push the data back to darwinbots.
Bots, how hard is it to make graphs from json data returning from the server? (I suspect there's no json generator/decoder in vb6, which would complicate it)

No, there is not. But python is designed for science!  ;)
Also, I will not have to worry about how often to read a file and such.

If it's tagged as beta, it means you'll only have minutes before the next version. :P

edit: is it possible to also change the simid also to unixtime? Makes indexing a bit better.

edit2: could also change that name to simStarttime or something.

emm... I am actually going to convert that one back to unixtime as it is used by autosave, you might as well have some fun converting it back. Right now I am trying to figure out why I am not getting any of my robots back from IM.

It is from this:

---------------------------
Project1
---------------------------
9/7/2014 2:34:57 PM
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

I just replaced everything "/" and ":" with "-" so I can use it directly on a file name.

You mean not going to convert to unixtime?

Maybe later? I am eager to resume my NN coding adventure here.

How hard it will be to do that from Python?

Dunno,  it's not critical nevertheless.

Just wasn't completely clear to me if you would convert or not to unixtime.  As the line I quoted said you would. Now it's clear. :P

I got as far as a complete eye setup, and found out that setting up eyes in notepad is a complete pain in the a. We need a tool to make setting up eyes more user friendly.

I'll probably wait until the next mini-update to download it.
