IcyFlamer1: idk how to do random lmao
IcyFlamer1: lmao it did it
DaNinja: did you try the descent?
Aya_Noaman: hey guys
Aya_Noaman: can someone explain the stub generator
Aya_Noaman: im creating a game but i dont rly understand from the directions
DaNinja: I've never tried. Have you read the syntax?
Westicles: Just find a similar puzzle and copy it
Aya_Noaman: DaNinja yes i read it
Aya_Noaman: Westicles so im just supposed to duplicate a game? no way
Aya_Noaman: if u tried before can u just tell me what to do when the only input is a number
Westicles: No one will consider it cheating if you copy someone else's stub generator
DaNinja: read <variable>
Aya_Noaman: thanks thats it?
DaNinja: guess so
Aya_Noaman: no it doesnt work
Aya_Noaman: is there sth i should write in the input other than the number?
Westicles: read N:int
IcyFlamer1: is it python because i only use python
IcyFlamer1: yes its print
// To debug: console.error('Debug messages...');
IcyFlamer1: i understand a little js so i might be able to help
jrke: Vik-ing click on three dots button which is present on viewing replay
jrke: nothing i misread your quesion
IcyFlamer1: anyone knows how to get past boss 4 in coders strike back?
IcyFlamer1: im using python
IcyFlamer1: im just satrting out python
IcyFlamer1: i thought everyone played coders strike back
IcyFlamer1: its the first ai game
IcyFlamer1: https://www.codingame.com/ide/puzzle/coders-strike-back theres the game idk how to explian
DaNinja: aim for nextCheckPointPosition - 4 * velocity
jrke: what new unlocked rules
jrke: da ninja i think its 3*vel
DaNinja: right :)
IcyFlamer1: im like bronze now
IcyFlamer1: any help?
DaNinja: the forums have a lot of discussions on CSB
Uljahn: colliding could be completely ignored until gold and then just some shielding should be enough for legend
Uljahn: drifting is more important i guess
CopperFr: what is your company ?
Uljahn: ajb1093: there is a list of valid moves provided in inputs to choose from
jacek: good afternoon
Astrobytes: Well, I'm confused.
LastRick: It is?
LastRick: oh i get it. I just think ppl consider florida eastern standard
eulerscheZahl: good news everyone i've set up VS code, i'm ready for the contest
DomiKo: good news.. or not.. my laptop is dead :(
eulerscheZahl: oh dear
eulerscheZahl: i hope you have a backup
DomiKo: but I don't have another good device :(
eulerscheZahl: amazon express delivery? the contest is near
eulerscheZahl: or a real hardware shop that you visit in person
DomiKo: I'm hoping that it will be repair before end of contest
DomiKo: or I will be coding from 13 tablet
eulerscheZahl: that sounds rough
DomiKo: that thing is cheaper than some parts from my keyboard...
DomiKo: I'm hoping that just battery died or something not important
eulerscheZahl: so its not turning on at all?
DomiKo: no signal of life
DomiKo: it looked like it wasn't even charging
KodyScharf: wont start for me :grimacing:
sylvain-reynaud: me neither
JDuke: I just got into one, seems fine
eulerscheZahl: "very very quick upgrade of the DB server, should have been back in 2 minutes. Preparing for the Fall Challenge 2020" from the discord server
eulerscheZahl: might be related to your clash problem?
MadKnight: eulerscheZahl u gonna do the contest in c# ?
Aya_Noaman: playing against clash bots is NOT COOL.
Aya_Noaman: For the last 5 games i always came in scnd or third because of a bot.
eulerscheZahl: i'm doing all contests in C# since Hypersonic
Majeck: Aya_Noaman I think it depends
eulerscheZahl: the clash bots only reproduce what real players did in the past
Majeck: This is purely anecdotal but when playing alone against bots I feel they're better
Aya_Noaman: yea but is it fair to be beaten by a bot in less that 30 secs?
Aya_Noaman: the average in the game in question was about 2 min
Majeck: Yeah, that never happens when playing with real people
eulerscheZahl: if the task is easy: yes
Majeck: At least to me
Majeck: It's purely anecdotal in my case but I think bots perform better if you're alone in a clash with them
Aya_Noaman: I think were better off playing against real ppl unless we chose to include a bot or two, agree?
Aya_Noaman: maybe higher levels cud do that
Majeck: I think bots are absolutely awesome
Hjax: if there were no bots, no one would play clash
Majeck: I didn't even know they were bots for like a year
Majeck: The reasoning behind putting them in is great
Aya_Noaman: Yea but if there was the choice of adding a bot it would be easier for beginners like me
Hjax: YOURE ALIVE
Majeck: And I love the transparency, just click on any of their profiles and you get linked to the articles
eulerscheZahl: we saw you dead and rotting in your basement
struct: Hi everyone, sorry euler
darkhorse64: Just in time for the contest ?
struct: Can I pm you?
eulerscheZahl: sure, you can PM all of us
Aya_Noaman: hey can i join too
Hjax: glad to see you again struct, its been a while :D
eulerscheZahl: 4 months
struct: I did not even know that I was a mod until now
struct: I'm happy to see you all again
AntiSquid: it's ok i understand why you'd miss me
struct: Who are you?
AntiSquid: glad you are well too lol, so what were you up to ?
struct: Not much, I see the site changed quite a bit
struct: at least home page
AntiSquid: we are waiting for the grow a tree addition .
eulerscheZahl: quest map and some certificate that praise you like a god for reaching CSB legend. but the real content is still the same
eulerscheZahl: we have to summon Astrobytes to share the happy news
struct: Is the site a bit slower?
struct: Like laggy?
eulerscheZahl: database update
eulerscheZahl: might not be fully index yet, not sure
DomiKo: ohh i pushed 5 people to Wood 1 in penguins :sweat_smile:
eulerscheZahl: i pushed at least that many into the icy water
BenjaminUrquhart: he exists
BenjaminUrquhart: the account-deleter themselves
eulerscheZahl: now he doesn't have to delete his account anymore
eulerscheZahl: he can ban all of us instead so *we* are the ones who have to start again
struct: Who wants to be first?
Automaton2000: i just want to have some fun
eulerscheZahl: I nominate AutomatonNN
AutomatonNN: which puzzle you did :P
Uljahn: Automaton2000: no fun allowed
Automaton2000: why did i just walk into?
jacek: AutomatonNN who is the most noob
AutomatonNN: hey guys
eulerscheZahl: we all are
jacek: and i see notclass is back
eulerscheZahl: DomiKo you should really add some pushing to your Penguins bot
jacek: and i should add actual heuristics into mine
eulerscheZahl: *a search
jacek: A* you say? maybe ill try
eulerscheZahl: i'll grab some food
struct: I see that dbd has been dethroned
DomiKo: eulerscheZahl yeah, I'm adding it right now
Aya_Noaman: join my game from #clash
Aya_Noaman: short mode
Astrobytes: oh wow, welcome back struct! Where have you been?
struct: Hello Astrobytes
Astrobytes: You OK man? We were getting a bit worried
DomiKo: https://www.codingame.com/share-replay/498913744 I know it's luck, but I'm happy :)
struct: I'm ok now, thanks, sorry for ditching
Astrobytes: As long as you're alright it's cool
jacek: -9997 and you win? fix your score
DomiKo: yeah still working :sweat_smile:
eulerscheZahl: oh, getting into top10 already. well done
struct: Is the console output bugged? It doesnt seem to keep up with the current frame of the game
DomiKo: not yet I guess
struct: If i try to press the arrows on the viewer
DomiKo: but when I add pusing maybe
DomiKo: struct in Penguins I see ouput for round 1 and 2 in the first round
DomiKo: soo yea I guess its bugged
struct: Its working now, weird
eulerscheZahl: looks fine for me
eulerscheZahl: what are you playing?
struct: Just pressed play my code on csb
eulerscheZahl: "submit" is "test in arena" now
struct: any difference?
eulerscheZahl: longer text
eulerscheZahl: more to read
BlaiseEbuth: More confusing
eulerscheZahl: oh, you are in Robin Hood mode now
struct: Maybe its a placeholder for a new feature
BlaiseEbuth: It's Link !
struct: Who's link?
Astrobytes: Robin Hood :rofl:
eulerscheZahl: little Rob riding hood
Astrobytes: Zelda... Link...
BlaiseEbuth: Because of the "Zelda" contest
eulerscheZahl: surprisingly hard to find a wizard hypnotoad
eulerscheZahl: neither a wizard nor a toad. i give you 0 out of 2 points
BlaiseEbuth: Some kind of turtle... Automaton2000 ?
Automaton2000: at least the way i did it again
eulerscheZahl: my toad collection doesn't have the right one on stock either https://imgur.com/a/Fu0H85M
Majeck: Should I use ints, floats or doubles for storing positions Automaton2000?
Automaton2000: that's why you have to find the bug
Hjax: this is all i could find lol
eulerscheZahl: i'll keep my current one i guess. i broke enough default replays already by changing my avatar
jacek: try https://i.imgur.com/7YuwuHp.jpg
**eulerscheZahl creates multiplayer and uses own avatar in default game then changes avatar and CG deletes the old profile pic
Majeck: eulerscheZahl I always thought that your hypnotoad was from Dave the Barbarian, I don't know what to do with my life now that I know it's from Futurama
eulerscheZahl: that looks depressing jacek
eulerscheZahl: i'll use it if i ever fail to reach legend
jrke: it looks tired for contest
eulerscheZahl: i don't even know what Dave the Barbarian is :D
eulerscheZahl: but i've seen every Futurama episode
Astrobytes: The Adventure Time one is good. The wizards all live inside the toad, you can't see them until it opens its mouth really wide
Astrobytes: (the one Hjax linked)
jrke: my harry potter looks good nothing to change in that :)
eulerscheZahl: that's Harry?
Astrobytes: Looks more like Emo Harry
eulerscheZahl: even now that I know it, i don't see it
jacek: or try the one from the group paint https://i.imgur.com/H3dRPJm.png
Hjax: his tie is the gryffindor colors at least
Hjax: look like harry to me
Astrobytes: hahahaha, you actually saved that jacek :D
eulerscheZahl: https://static.codingame.com/servlet/fileservlet?id=50728347735682 now i see harry
eulerscheZahl: wait, who modified my hypnotoad? :rage:
Hjax: ive viewed peoples profile pictures like that before, only to discover their profile picture is a full screen screenshot, showing their browser and open tabs
Hjax: zoomed in on just the picture for codingame
Gabbek: hello everyone :)
Majeck: eulerscheZahl what about: https://ncwinters.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/ACuriousInfluence_600x600.jpg
Gabbek: pictures discussion, interesting
Gabbek: that looks pretty
Hjax: hello Gabbek, excited for the contest?
eulerscheZahl: i saw some real pic of a user who zoomed in to a fancy text on his tshirt
Gabbek: Hjax looking forward to it, yeah - first contest of mine :) hoping to reach gold somehow
eulerscheZahl: that's a nice one Majeck
eulerscheZahl: hm, we could automate this to see the profile and background images of the first X users from the leaderboard
eulerscheZahl: but not now, cat needs me
Gabbek: Hjax I've been experimenting quite a bit with my state copying in python; uhh... making classes for tiles in grid is not smart :D around 20 times slower compared to other methods :(
Hjax: yeah, the less data representing the game board the better
Hjax: ideally either an integer array or just a long if the game is bitboard-able
Gabbek: struct good to see you! You don't know me - just a reader of yours from forums :)
Gabbek: of yours posts*
struct: I don't think I wrote much but thanks
jacek: wizard and frog eh https://i.imgur.com/UWOOYGS.jpg
Gabbek: toad mage... hmm, euler will have a class on his avatar as well? :P toad mage, toad warrior... there's lots of possibilities!
Gabbek: Hjax are you doing anything at the moment? If you're interested in trying out some ideas on one of the multis you haven't tried then I'm up for it
Hjax: im at work, plus im not really interested in starting a multi right before a contest
Gabbek: trying to find something fun to do while waiting :) decided to push out my xmas rush bot from silver but... guess I'll do that later - too lazy to re-write my insanely crappy copying of states :D
Gabbek: sure thing
Hjax: as long as the contest doesnt have a massive random element / tons of fog of war
Hjax: ill probably be playing a lot of it
Gabbek: then I'm sure we'll catch each other
Hjax: chat is usually really active during contests, lots of lively discussions
Hjax: it will be fun ^_^
jrke: yup contest makes all inactive users active
Gabbek: guess there are many issues like yesterday in general, right?
Hjax: ooo, the_duck is signed up for the contest
Hjax: i hope he plays, hes really good
Gabbek: (I don't even know what the entire fuss was about - was too confused to join in on discussion :D )
struct: what happened?
eulerscheZahl: saw the duck too. did really well at amadeus
Astrobytes: nah, less spammers/trolls in contest time usually
eulerscheZahl: or relatively less so you don't notice it that much
eulerscheZahl: or mods being more active to react faster?
eulerscheZahl: so many possibilities
Hjax: the duck got honorary first place at amadeus, he held rank 1 for like, 7 of the 10 days
Gabbek: struct some trolling, I think - involving bans if I'm not mistaken
Astrobytes: Either way, it's better
struct: What was amadeus?
jacek: bans for trolling? :scream:
jrke: i think i was one of those spammers during spring challenge :thinking:
Gabbek: are there contests which aren't on multi?
Hjax: @struct Unleash the Geek
jacek: amadeus? kurisu makise?
Hjax: el psy kongroo
struct: There was some Gabbek
struct: Please dont say that name Hjax
struct: dont mention it :(
Hjax: you asked XD
eulerscheZahl: i forgot the contest name for a moment
Gabbek: Hjax Steins Gate - right?
jacek: was it one with mining and radar?
jrke: there are many - https://www.codingame.com/contests/finished
Hjax: yep Gabbek, my favorite anime
Gabbek: oh, thanks jrke
eulerscheZahl: the first ones were puzzle contests with a 4h duration
jrke: what was the criteria for ranking then?
Gabbek: the last crusade as 4h duration? Yikes... I remember solving those for a long time, but then again - I'm pretty slow
Hjax: not too long ago i was looking to see if an American had ever won a contest, and the answer looked like no
eulerscheZahl: https://www.codingame.com/hackathon/ubisoft-bordeaux-coding-challenge that one starts soon
Gabbek: where did you find the link, eulerscheZahl?
jrke: ubisoft,In which recurse works?
Gabbek: just in last 5mins I've seen things I haven't seen ever before :D
struct: this is from bordeaux
jrke: yeah btw euler where you got that link?
eulerscheZahl: that's where I found it: https://imgur.com/a/bOJeFrG
eulerscheZahl: there are some more things you haven't seen before i bet
Gabbek: I remember watching recurse's stream - that was really pleasant experience; most of the streams are about clash of codes right?
eulerscheZahl: like https://www.codingame.com/hackathon/ea-2019-battlegrounds/leaderboard/global
jacek: btw. did you find some 'hidden' replay of the new contest?
Gabbek: Error loading Quest Map
eulerscheZahl: didn't search
Gabbek: yikes :D
Gabbek: now I'm getting all kinds of errors
LastRick: oh boy
Gabbek: brb ~
Hjax: more fun if we dont get a replay ahead of time
struct: I would stream coding multies or contributions, but my coding skills are not great
LastRick: better now than in 2 days i guess
eulerscheZahl: but i reported 2 different ways how i succeeded in the past. both fixed
eulerscheZahl: i knew about BOTG hero selection before the other players. and groots
eulerscheZahl: couldn't view it but see the commands and image names
eulerscheZahl: and scared Illedan so much that he didn't update the game until it was fixed
eulerscheZahl: fun times
eulerscheZahl: the forum is a blank page for me now and the homepage just says "Error loading Quest Map"
eulerscheZahl: is it me?
Gabbek: nope euler
Gabbek: same happened to me
Gabbek: after viewing your link :P
Gabbek: relogging helped
BlaiseEbuth: Buh. The Ubisoft challenge don't want me... :(
struct: Yeah I had to login again
jrke: how to register in that ubisoft challenge
struct: You probably need an ubisoft emal
eulerscheZahl: logout helped, thanks for the hint
jrke: no there is register button there and it ask to create new cg account
jrke: no option for login
struct: There is option for login
BlaiseEbuth: On top
eulerscheZahl: that's what you get for clicking random links that a stranger posts on the internet
jrke: i tried but when logged in it refreshes the page and makes me log out again
struct: When I open that link I get logged of on here
Gabbek: I remember pycheckio and sharing pycharm's edu logs
Gabbek: and being able to delete someone's account :(
Gabbek: so scary :D
eulerscheZahl: another interesting contrib, some of you will recognize it. sadly never released https://www.codingame.com/ide/demo/8266462d136bc0f9f853dd517ef1cf8f2e3cc6
jrke: yeah i think there is bug in that page thats why CG didn't provided it openly
struct: Is this the sound one?
Gabbek: oh, never seen this, looks awesome
eulerscheZahl: the only point of discussion: creator wanted an optim. while the rest of us said it's a puzzle (easy to reach perfect score)
eulerscheZahl: then he somehow lost interest :(
DomiKo: invalid move by Euler
DomiKo: whait what
DomiKo: that was timeout by me lol
jrke: how you won after timing out lol
jacek: everyone failed
eulerscheZahl: i wanted to spawn as you died
DomiKo: so i can always timeout and won?
eulerscheZahl: 9 penguins in total. do we have them yet? no => keep spawning
Gabbek: there's so many awesome multis... wait 5 years and I'll be there guys :P
eulerscheZahl: in 5 years we will at least double the number
eulerscheZahl: scroll to the bottom, there are release dates https://chadok.info/codingame/puzzles_list.html
jrke: then he will say - 'here's so many awesome multis... wait 10 years and I'll be there guys :P'
Gabbek: I'm spending much less time playing games and doing codingame's puzzles, so there's a chance, hehe :)
DomiKo: i added pushing!
DomiKo: lets see
eulerscheZahl: do you push yourself?
DomiKo: I think no
eulerscheZahl: top5 was surprisingly easy
eulerscheZahl: but there's only 1 really strong player
Gabbek: talking about penguins?
jacek: he could make different distros pushing each other
Gabbek: *adding penguins to the list of multis I wanna try out*
struct: People that use transposition tables, do you use unordered map or you have your own implementation?
struct: for CG?
jacek: unordered_map. MSmits has own implementation
jacek: as always
Gabbek: I mostly used unordered_map, but it's most likely best to look at others :)
eulerscheZahl: in C# smits doesn't even use List<T> he uses List as i recently learned
eulerscheZahl: he left me in utter disbelief
jacek: no to generic eh
Gabbek: started loving one thing that eulerscheZahl shown me - zobrist hashing :)
eulerscheZahl: that's another topic
eulerscheZahl: DomiKo try not to spawn at the edge. makes you vulnerable to pushing
DomiKo: that could help
DomiKo: look like I will be top5
DomiKo: I have big problem, that sometimes my penguins group in one place :/
jacek: no homo
DomiKo: maybe that's why
darkhorse64: @Domiko: searching or bunch of ifs ??
DomiKo: no search
DomiKo: my score is pretty intuitive
DomiKo: right know fitting some parameters
eulerscheZahl: dbdr at #3 has no search either
eulerscheZahl: i have a depth 1 only
eulerscheZahl: tric trac goes much deeper with a cheap scoring
Astrobytes: tric-itrax algo
darkhorse64: I have a greedy bot that avoids being pushed (but fails sometimes, it's buggy) an looks for pushes. I do not optimie harvesting
DomiKo: yea avoiding gives a lot
darkhorse64: I have been very lazy. Time to work a bit to get back to top 10
darkhorse64: I want to try a MCTS for n players
jacek: so NCTS?
DomiKo: so close
DomiKo: i got it!
eulerscheZahl: #3. you should stop now
DomiKo: i have 41% with you
eulerscheZahl: so i have 59%?
DomiKo: in that run yes
eulerscheZahl: then i'm still superior B)
DomiKo: right now it cg stats says 69% for you
DomiKo: so i can submit spam
DomiKo: and get some more points
DomiKo: I should look at score of opponents I guess
eulerscheZahl: i still have some obvious flaws when it comes to extending my territory :(
DomiKo: I have some problem with my greedy end game
DomiKo: when I'm the only player in some spot
DomiKo: but I have to say
DomiKo: that is great game
DomiKo: really fun
eulerscheZahl: like how is the right one supposed to be better (i'm red)? https://imgur.com/a/3eY55aF
eulerscheZahl: yes, well chosen from LeRenard
DomiKo: that will be interesting when more players will spend some time here
eulerscheZahl: it gained > 100 players in a week (puzzle of the week)
eulerscheZahl: but most didn't try for long
Gabbek: looks really interesting
Westicles: The mysterious number shifter hit 700. Doesn't seem to be slowing down
eulerscheZahl: a graph problem. but your actions modify it, cutting edges every time
eulerscheZahl: wow, still going
eulerscheZahl: and we don't even know if that's with the script or copy-pasting levels by hand
Westicles: Level 2 guy, he just came here for this I guess
eulerscheZahl: onboarding and then directly to number shifting
Westicles: Probably samegame will go the same way, eventually
eulerscheZahl: so, did he know about the game when creating the account already?
eulerscheZahl: i think i have a bug in the referee. you can't solve level 1000 as it will try to create the map for 1001 and crash
eulerscheZahl: so 999 is the max unless i fix it
Westicles: Give him a year and it will be a hot topic
trictrac: hello struct back to business, good news !
Zenoscave: struct is back?
struct: Hi trictrac, thanks
Zenoscave: hi struct o/
struct: hi Zeno
Zenoscave: hi trictrac. hi Westicles and eulerscheZahl
Westicles: hey Zeno
eulerscheZahl: hi mass pinger
wlesavo: zeno probably back from celebrating :smiley:
eulerscheZahl: celebrating what? Biden victory?
Westicles: Mail fraud, and announcing a cure the first working day after?
trictrac: hi every one
eulerscheZahl: good evening
trictrac: struct as discuss with you month ago, I have tried to implement hanabi cooperative game (cf fireworks contribution)
Zenoscave: I celebrated Biden too
eulerscheZahl: you can't celebrate that long enough
Zenoscave: Last week was agonizing in wait. but there's still more to be done. It is official but we still need to wait
eulerscheZahl: https://russianaicup.ru/ oh, a date is announced :o
Zenoscave: on the 21th :laughing:
Zenoscave: read the announcement again
Zenoscave: it says th
eulerscheZahl: so, where's the typo? wrong ending or wrong number?
Zenoscave: That's my point
eulerscheZahl: 21st is still G contest
eulerscheZahl: so i go with 24th
Zenoscave: Are you ready for Thurs?
eulerscheZahl: not even sure if or how hard i will try RAIC
metahom: in Russian there's no typo. 21
Zenoscave: good to know. Thanks metahom
eulerscheZahl: beta anyways. a few years ago i invented the sandwich in the command and conquer game
eulerscheZahl: and they added an atomic explosion
Astrobytes: "a few years ago i invented the sandwich" is my take-home from that
Westicles: The Earl of Euler
Zenoscave: how old are you euler? An earl nonetheless too
Zenoscave: bah Westicles you stole my joke
Westicles: heh heh
Zenoscave: Well it's official. My C# Optim is awful
Zenoscave: 155/159 Legend UTTT
Zenoscave: Rubbish MCTS
eulerscheZahl: you had a C++ before. that's a regression for UTTT
Zenoscave: I was seeing if my C# MCTS would hold up. Prepping for new contest
Zenoscave: I worked out the kinks in the main code so the optim is as good as it gets
Zenoscave: garbage collection?
Zenoscave: is it slow in c#?
Astrobytes: Garbage Collecting Tree SEarch... I like it
Zenoscave: So object reference and handles should be global....
Zenoscave: well that might help a bit
Zenoscave: OK this'll be a major rewrite
darkhorse64: In every language, memory allocation is not compatible with performances
Zenoscave: or I can do the global node array trick and upfront the alloc
struct: trictrac and how did it go?
struct: Hi Illedan I saw your forum message today
Astrobytes: It's in Contributions struct
Illedan: Oh, hi struct :D
Illedan: Where you been at?
trictrac: 4 players -> 4 rounds of 3 players -> score for 1 player = sum of round he participate
MasterDuck: How does a clash decide if your code is "not correct enough"? Like when you pass all the tests, but you don't get 100% score.
Astrobytes: Validators differ from the test cases
Astrobytes: (well, they should)
struct: Hiding, but I'm back
Astrobytes: So you have to think of edge cases MasterDuck
struct: It's to prevent hardcoding, but sometimes test cases are not good enough
struct: Good job tric
Astrobytes: It's gonna be an interesting game
MasterDuck: Thanks for answers.
Astrobytes: np MasterDuck
Illedan: Nice :)
Astrobytes: The balance is restored to the force now that you're back struct
AntiSquid: oh yeah saw that RAIC starts when CG fall contest ends
struct: Hi JBM
AntiSquid: struct so where have you been?
Astrobytes: Not here ;)
struct: Not in jail
AntiSquid: Automaton2000 prison and jail aren't the same right?
Automaton2000: no dude i have to figure out how to get started
AntiSquid: ok thanks for confirming
jacek: AutomatonNN what kind of game for the contest?
AutomatonNN: What do you mean by the coding skills?
AntiSquid: so the contest is about coding skills
Zenoscave: Why were you in jail Struct
Zenoscave: Too many double rolls?
struct: I was inocent
AntiSquid: unconsensual staring ?
AntiSquid: did you guys notice the Event Schedule and Resources on the contest page? so much work put into that lol
struct: I only noticed it at first because page did not load everything at once at first
struct: Too much to scroll imo
grateful_tomato: big private clash, no bots: https://www.codingame.com/clashofcode/clash/14576942aae272dbe0ceace9f080768ae9a2b50
struct: Automaton2020 join
struct: Automaton2000 join
Automaton2000: hm i think i can make the difference between the two
Astrobytes: Oh I didn't notice all that on the contest page
Astrobytes: lol, re Curse stream labelled as bitstream :rofl:
Astrobytes: The meme lives on
Hjax: ive never asked him about bitstreams
Hjax: despite his profile urging me to do so
Astrobytes: Yeah, I'd keep it that way :)
Hjax: i take it hes not interested in playing the contest?
Astrobytes: Not wishing to speak for the man himself but we'll see, if he likes it he might I guess
Hjax: we need a board game contest so jacek will play :P
AntiSquid: grateful_tomato join here, no bots https://www.codingame.com/multiplayer
AntiSquid: then i join your clash
Astrobytes: They're generally harder though, so not suitable for the CG "Easy to start, hard to master" thingy
Hjax: codingame fall challenge 2020, chutes and ladders
Hjax: easy to start :P
Hjax: also similar random element to pacman

Astrobytes: Ice & Fire sounds strangely familiar...
Hjax: i wonder what the games name will be
struct: I think Ocean of Code was probably the easiest to figure what it was

Hjax: how to fit a coding pun in, ocarina of time, twinrova, maybe another zelda title
AntiSquid: how so struct
struct: 2 hours before you knew it was a board game IIRC
AntiSquid: based on what
struct: maybe i'm just confused

AntiSquid: XR was immediately guessed as crazy labyrinth game
Astrobytes: The ARduino of Time
Astrobytes: Wondev Witches
Astrobytes: The Ocarina of Line Numbers
AntiSquid: The Ocarina of NO Time to sleep till Legend
