EURO PrizeThis month something changed in the placing list, finally. Read the Challenges Page for the complete results.
We had to wait a lot of months but now I can say that a new star is born: the novice robot Headhunter reached a surprising good percentage in SINGLE match and its 80% is only 5% away from the great IonStrom. Even the old KillerBees and the versatile Mouth left almost 20% to the power of this new robot.
Even in DOUBLE mode Headhunter was second even if its percentage is comparable to the one of Mouth and KillerBees but...
it placed at the last position in TEAM mode! This is not a surprising results since Headhunter (apparently) doesn't change its strategy in TEAM mode and it's notorious that flocking behaviours (in any form) are important in the last type of play.
OneEyedWillyII is always near the first positions, but its percentages were low and very dangerous this time.

Nothing changed in the first position of the placing lists: the absolute winner is always IonStorm. It collected its fourth month of supremacy. There is still one tournament and the prize of 35 euro will be assigned to someone, finally.

From the novices side, Berserk seems promising and almost reached 50% in DOUBLE match. I hope that a new great robot is going to appear during the next tournament.
Robin was slightly weaker, while Sonicstorm was nothing else that a copy of the sample robot Platoon.

ChestRcopRpot sent the full set of his robots, but only his best ones survived (Mouth is one of these), and a PlatoonClone (maybe slightly modified?). It's a strange thing that such an old-fashioned robot could survive in a competitive arena like this is.

Thanks to all the players for this new great challenge.

Now you can upload your robots to win the September 2002 Jrobots Challenge (September 7th-October 5th 2002) aka The Final Fight alias A New Star Is Born. Remember that nobody won the 35 euro prize yet and someone is going to win next time for sure

Yet Another Cloth SimulatorIn a few hours you'll find in the Challenges page the results of the August 2002 Jrobots Challenge.
In the meantime you could give a look to a new OpenGL demo I've written: "Yet Another Cloth Simulator" . It's a side effect of the flight simulator of "Zeke On Your Six!" and the result seems nice to me.
The Demo needs an accelerated 3D graphics card with OpenGL drivers, but on the site you can find some screenshots. If you are interested, the source code is available, too.
Send any comment about the Demos to
