If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Bots in 0.14 tournament

It's interesting to have a look at the bots. xw (captain), qw and rw play in the 0.14 tournament as well. Afaik they are programmed by elliptic.

As crawl is very complex I think it's a lot of work to program bots for the game. Is there a difference in source code between xw, qw and rw? If so, do they have different strategies?

Re: Bots in 0.14 tournament

xw is N78291's bot, qw is elliptic's and rw is rwbarton's. xw and qw are both entirely written in Lua in their rcfiles. I believe that qw is optimised for GrBe which it has won once online and a few times offline, xw I don't think has gotten as far but does some fun things like worshipping Chei (it vaguely knows how to use the abilities, even) and Beogh occasionally. rw is written in Haskell I believe, I have even less of a clue how it works than the others.

I had some look at qw's morgue file, the following looked funny.

  Code:
 56534 | Vaults:5 | 56534 ||| Ignoring deep elf sorcerer.
 56534 | Vaults:5 | 56534 ||| Ignoring yaktaur captain.
 56536 | Vaults:5 | 56536 ||| Ignoring soul eater.
 56537 | Vaults:5 | 56537 ||| Unignoring soul eater.
 56537 | Vaults:5 | 56537 ||| Unignoring deep elf sorcerer.
 56537 | Vaults:5 | 56537 ||| Unignoring yaktaur captain.

Here's rw's code, by the way.

Hmm, looks like Crawl needs to be made harder. :)
