Bugs and fixes / Overflow 2.43

Happened over night, so I don't know if there was something special causing it.

Bugs and fixes / Global mutation rates
« on: April 02, 2007, 09:50:21 AM »

I recogniced, that the number of mutations within my zero-bot sim allmost perfectly matched with the estimated number, calculated with the mutation-rate. I used the standart rates (1/5,000,000 for point-mutation) and had an average of 190 mutations at 4,000,000 circles (DNA length is 231). Estimated number is about 185, if I'm right.
The global mutation rate is at 32X, so I wondered, if maybe those 1/5,000,000 are meant to be at 32X and I ran a simulation with a global mutation rate of 1/32 with the same result (average of 45 mutations after 1,000,000 cycles).
At last I ran a simulation with an oscillating mutation rate and watched the mutation-graph, wich should have built steps. But it returned a straight line so there is no change in mutation rate.
I searched the forum without any result, cause I thought I might have missed that mutation rates are disabled.
So it seems to be a bug, but I can't imagine noone else found this before.

I use Version 2.43 of course


Bugs and fixes / Div by Zero 2.42.9v
« on: January 23, 2007, 12:08:06 PM »
In the options menu for a special species I get a div-by-zero, if I manualy disable all mutations, exit the menu and then reenter the menu for the same species.

Bugs and fixes / Overflow 2.42.9v
« on: January 23, 2007, 11:11:17 AM »
it happened, after I played around with mazes and then tried to load an other sim.
Overflow occured while loading.

Just realised the safe I've tried to load is defect, so it might be a problem caused by my pc while saving.

And the 5 latest auto-safes are damaged aswell. So it definitly got nothing to do with the mazes...

Newbie / Venom <-> Poison

maybe it's just a problem with the language, cause both are translated with "Gift", but I looked them up without finding a real difference in the meaning, but differences in the usage of the words. So what are the effects making them different?

Bugs and fixes / Crash with 2.42.9t
« on: January 12, 2007, 02:25:44 PM »
Sim crashed with an "Error. Ɯberlauf. Saving sim in saves directory as error.sim".
Hope it's not a problem I zipped it with Winrar, but the filesize is way better...

Edit: Mh, no rar-file allowed  , well, then the bigger one:

Newbie / Shot Energy Exchange Method
« on: January 11, 2007, 03:03:08 PM »
there are two methods:
Fixed and proportional.
The fixed one seems to be clear to me, but I'm not sure about the proportional one.
Proportional to what?
I thought, to the costs for the shot, but I ran a sim at 80% and it worked.
So what is it?

Bugs and fixes / Problem with decimals
« on: January 11, 2007, 02:04:12 PM »

I have the problem, that I can't use any decimals in DB, in instance for the costs.
Whenever I used one the costs are ignored in the simulation.
Taking a look at the costs shows, that the entered decimal (0.04) had been changed to 0,04.
If I now click on OK and reenter the costs-menu the value is 0.

I can imagine the problem has to do with the fact I'm using a german System, cause I can remember I had a similar problem with Excel once, but I don't know how to check this, so maybe someone else knows how?

I have this problem with every version I used yet (from 2.1 over 2.37.6 to 2.42.9 - 2.42.9s).


Newbie / Hi
« on: January 11, 2007, 11:07:50 AM »
my name is Sebastian, I'm 21 years old and from Germany.
I was reading about artificial intellegence/life and searched for some evolution-simulation, when I found Darwinbot. I was pretty impressed by the program and its possibilities (from "simple" evo-sims to competitions in leagues) and I sit in front of my screen for hours, trying to figure out working conditions and costs.
After I found some "Div by Zero - Errors" I decided to take a look at the Forum, found a new version and... cried a few tears, cause my 15hrs-sim didn't work fine with the new version   .
But I like it even more now *g*
I'll try to do my part in finding bugs and so on.

So far,
