A more advanced type of robot than Robot that allows non-blocking calls. The JuniorRobot has a simplified model, in purpose of teaching programming. A HitRobotEvent is sent to onHitRobot() when your robot collides with another.

The code is straightforward and we will not analyze it here, but I encourage you to try it out. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. Once you have mastered how to move the robocods and its associated weaponry, it’s a good time to consider the tasks of firing and controlling damage. In the mean while, the Robocode community began to develop their own versions of Robocode in order to get rid of bugs and put new features into Robocode, the Contributions for Open Source Robocode and later on the RobocodeNG project by Flemming N.

It will stop when it hits a wall or robot. You create a robot, put it onto a battlefield, and let apj battle to the roboxode end against opponent robots created by other developers.

Each robot starts out with a default “energy level,” and is considered destroyed when its energy level falls to zero.

Area 1 We don’t specify any class scope variables in this robot. Click Finishand the battle will begin.

This way you can move side to side easily and dodge the bullets. Like chasing another robot. Add our robot, dw. A look behind the scenes at Robocode reveals a sophisticated simulation engine that is both high performance in order to render the battle at realistic speed and flexible enabling the creation of complex robotics logic without getting in the way. So, when the radar points at robot and scan it, the robot is firing.


A description of the AdvancedRobot class is beyond the scope of this article, but I encourage you to experiment with this advanced class when you are comfortable with the operation of the basic Robot class. Experiment with other robots in the sample collection, and see how DWStraight fares against them. I came to ask about Robocode robots.

Whenever the robot moves or turns, the radar is always active, and if it detects any robots within its range, an event is triggered.

The Robot Editor will display the Java code that you need to write to control the robot.

Robocode API Documentation

You could invent more and then randomly decide what todo. Area 1 In this space we can declare class scope variables and set their value. From here, you can invoke the Robot Editor and compiler using the menu. Area 4 Here, in addition to handling the auto-generated ScannedRobot event and firing at the robot that is found directly, we also detect the HitByBullet event and turn degrees going clockwise and counterclockwise, rohocode when ronocode get hit.

Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. Sing Li Published on January 01, Since then, a lot of new versions of Robocode have been released with more and more features and contributions from the community. When the robot is stricken by a bullet, this method is called. They will be available within the robot’s run method, as well as any other helper methods that you may create.

Rock ’em, sock ’em Robocode!

Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead? Thank you for your interest in this question. You can either move sideways randomly or only move when you register a change in the other robots energy level because that could mean that they fired at you.


This wait interval is typically tens of milliseconds, and even the most complex robot tends to use only 1 or 2 milliseconds zpi strategy and computation with today’s typical system speed. The motivation behind Ali design I caught up with Mathew Nelson, Robocode’s creator, and asked him about his original motivation for creating Robocode.

Nelson, aka Mat Nelsonas a personal endeavour in late and became a ribocode one when he brought it to IBM, in the form of an AlphaWorks download, in July Don’t use random values because it is inaccurate.

Use the onHitByBullet method to get away if the energy is low.

A battle manager thread manages the robots, bullets, and rendering on the battlefield. In the current implementation, rendering is disabled whenever the Robocode application is minimized, allowing the simulation to proceed at a faster rate.

It is often used to get the robot into a pre-determined state before starting repetitive action. A battle manager thread is the controller of the system: The robot can be blocked when reaches the wall. For example, the code in Listing 1 handles the ScannedRobot event and simply fires directly at the robot whenever one is detected by the radar.
