LelouchVC2: Imagine caring about rank

zakacat: take taco

antiwonto: [auto] That taco command has moved to the #taco channel

zakacat: what kinda tacoless bs is this?

zakacat: jk

Husoski: ...presuming "bs" is "brutal sematics", I guess.

zakacat: haha, precisely

LelouchVC2: The hell?

LelouchVC2: BS clearly stands for bachelors of science

LelouchVC2: a tacoless bachelors of science degree is worthless!

zakacat: A tacoless anything is worthless

LelouchVC2: im worthless ? :((

zakacat: I hate to break it to you like this

LelouchVC2: PLEASE


zakacat: obtain

zakacat: more

zakacat: tacos

LelouchVC2: ur killin' me smalls

LelouchVC2: !

Default avatar.png Pythonista_TN: gm everyone

Default avatar.png gabecarter3: i need to get better

Default avatar.png Onlyfans_XxEgirlxX: Ye, if you suce you can

5DN1L: kicked


Default avatar.png Onlyfans_XxEgirlxX: Coucou

5DN1L: banned

LelouchVC2: 0-0

coconnexion: hey

Default avatar.png madderate: mole

asabbar: hii

Default avatar.png Zoulou_nia: pétasse ekip ekip

5DN1L: banned

5DN1L: for spamming various chat channels here

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: hello

j4at: Is it allowed to use python golfer in clash ?

Mortis_666: yes

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: yessssss

j4at: Well, i never saw someone using it. Which is weird.

Mortis_666: not everyone knows this thing

5DN1L: and those who know do not necessarily want to use it :wink: or show that they have used it

j4at: "or show that they have used it" I would have knew if someone uses it because their solution will be too short. But that probably never happend too me. Unless they intentionally made their solution just short enough to win. My guess is that no one wants to use because they don't want to ruin the fun for people who don't.

j4at: know about it

5DN1L: Using that shortener doesn't necessarily produce the shortest code

5DN1L: The uncompressed code has to be short in the first place

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: okiiiiiii

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: god is good

5DN1L: coding-related topics only, TheFlyingdidgeridoo

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: your bans will bring you to hell. God will forgive you.

Default avatar.png TheFlyingdidgeridoo: if you stop

5DN1L: kicked, next is a ban

Mortis_666: 🤦‍♂️

Urutar: According to the bible, god would be merciful in either case... but this isn't the place for religion, but code. So please, keep it code related :)

Urutar: Quick question: If I take a certification here and my score is better than 99% of professionals (which basically means I got a perfect score) - what is the point in retaking it?

Urutar: And is there any quest after the one for the collaboration legend level achievement?

Default avatar.png SuperDarius: i dont understand a fucking shit man

antiwonto: [auto] SuperDarius be respectful and watch your language

Default avatar.png SuperDarius: this is very complicate

5DN1L: Urutar, nope, and CG did mention that the percentage calculation was bugged and they intended to fix it

Default avatar.png SuperDarius: :older_man_tone3:

Leo_Aquinas: is this platform suitable for beginners because i feel like i cant progress at all

5DN1L: not really, it's probably better for you to practise on other websites first, and come back to practise afterwards

5DN1L: to learn* on other

Leo_Aquinas: do u have any recommendations on other beginner sites

Mortis_666: Leo_Aquinas u can try

5DN1L: Leo_Aquinas For python, you may try the links listed on:

Leo_Aquinas: thx

5DN1L: Urutar my answer to your question 1 can be found about 10 minutes ago, and regarding your question 2, not sure what you mean by "the collaboration legend level achievement"? The quest map shows all the available quests, unlocked or not

MajorKurk: Hey there, i want to try bot combat, do you have recommendation for a starter ?

Default avatar.png vZIWild: im pro

Default avatar.png alovera: hello

hhuuddoo: alovera juice from wollworths is yummmmm!!

Urutar: 5DN1L Sorry, was afk for a bit, but read your answers - for the first, goddie. The second: when I first started 6 month or so ago I couldn't see all the quests; some were only shown after specific quests were completed (I think)

Urutar: But in any case I'm only missing 1 or 2 quests :D

Urutar: Thanks for you answers :D

5DN1L: np :D

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: so many of the clashes have such ambiguous explanations damn

5DN1L: yeah unfortunately

5DN1L: you can help amend them

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: not good for my impostor syndrome

Urutar: What do you think of my submission for a CoC then? Any ideas for improvements?

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: wow it's actually a great one lol

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: Quite difficult one too, or maybe i'm too noob

Urutar: I put some effort in it and had some great feedback :D

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: damn i am not too damn sure about solving this in less than 5 minutes though

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: but yeah it's a great submission bro

Urutar: Thanks :D

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: lol it's really perfect for a reverse clash, the guy is correct lol

Urutar: You mean the comment from Husoski? Well, I adjusted the submission since then ^^

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: yeah no worries bro it is one of the better ones i've seen for sure thanks for the great clash bro

Urutar: Thanks for the feedback and approval :D

Urutar: Now I need just one more, and the contributor badge will be mine, muhahaha... *ahem*. Nothing to see here.

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: :joy::joy:

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: how is everyone today?

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: good bro how r u

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: pretty good

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: what u up to today

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: nothing much just doing some programing before I go to work

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: what about you

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: i have 24 years experience of programming but yet the cryptography stumps me

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: damnnn

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: hahahah pretty much everything stumps me lol

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: lol

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: yeah just doing some chill puzzles after work i only have like 2 years of experience lol

Default avatar.png HalilUP: can we choose the clash types we want to join

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: i showed my son whos 17, one of the easy ones and he been trying to figure it out since last week

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: haha as long as he enjoys it

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: only thing to do is to make sure he enjoys it

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: oh yea he loves it

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: he loves solving puzzles

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: Halil we can't unless you create a private clash or something im not sure

Default avatar.png lon_john_ilverjh: i even make him code puzzles where i make a code and put in some mistakes and he has to find them

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: hahaha good stuff he'll surely find his way

Default avatar.png LinhT.Nguyen: getting to enjoy your work to any extent while making decent money is absolutely a bless already i think, he'll do great for sure hahah

Urutar: You can create a private clash :D

Default avatar.png kritkode: how do you make puzzles


Urutar: There you can find documentation how to do that and create one :)

Default avatar.png TasciBerkan: Does anyone find understanding the description of puzzles harder than the puzzle itself

Default avatar.png TasciBerkan: I dont know if it is my problem but I have no issues in similar websites to codingame

5DN1L: depends on which puzzle I guess

Default avatar.png ttvzey2: any girls?

5DN1L: don't spam every channel, ttvzey2

Urutar: Well, some descriptions are not as well written as they could be, but most should be alright^^

abt8601: TasciBerkan It's possible that some puzzles have badly written descriptions, yet they pass the community approval for whatever reason

dot.nick: bruh we had numpy available for python3?

5DN1L: yes

5DN1L: have

5DN1L: not just had

dot.nick: and scipy and pandas it says

dot.nick: til

AlexS293: :flag_al:

5DN1L: don't spam AlexS293

Go1d: are you guyz all playing Power of Thor Ep1? or is it kinds of random matched chat?

5DN1L: what do you mean?

Uljahn: it's a general chat

Go1d: i see, i just started to playing a game and realized there was a chat next game UI.

5DN1L: ah ok

Urutar: Yeah, it's global - but there is a seperate (group) chat for clashes which opens on joining a clash

derjack: :upside_down:

antiwonto: [auto] ':upside_down:' was defined as ' ɥǝllo '

derjack: :taco: jace

derjack: :taco: jacek

antiwonto: [auto] derjack has awarded jacek 10 tacos. jacek now has 22 taco. derjack now has 50 taco

5DN1L: lucky that there's no jace here? :upside_down:

Urutar: There are some on the floor now :D

Urutar: Mhhhh, floor tacos

Urutar: Whoop whoop, my submission is live, folks! :D

5DN1L: 🎉

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7:

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: ??

5DN1L: What do you want to ask?

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: This game

5DN1L: And your question is...?

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: I put a code saying if enemy1 is closer, print enemy one, otherwise print enemy2

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: it says: Timeout: your program did not provide an input in due time.

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: and that I lose

5DN1L: Which language?

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: but the solution is exactly that

Ayza: If that's the whole code, you didn't read any input

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: this time I did it with PHP

5DN1L: Did you replace the whole code?

Ayza: you're supposed to append that code not replace the whole code with it

5DN1L: or did you just insert the code?

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: in the end yes

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: after this // Enter the code here

5DN1L: before the closing }?

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: sure... I know programming

5DN1L: but the copy/paste code tells you to add newlines too

Astrobytes: ^

5DN1L: your code does not have those newlines

Astrobytes: that's the problem

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: I also try it on C

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: same stuff

5DN1L: Are you copying/pasting the suggested code, or are you writing one by yourself?

Astrobytes: Can you paste your whole code please

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: ok...

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: working now with C

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: but it was not... strangely...

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: this is a very easy program

MSmits: it seems you are switching languages because you think one or the other language doesn't work.

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: should work on firts try

MSmits: All languages work

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: thanks

MSmits: just pick the one you like

Astrobytes: Afternoon MSmits and 5DN1L

MSmits: hi Astrobytes

Default avatar.png ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7: sure, but some times it asks for more restrict code on some language

5DN1L: Good afternoon Astrobytes :)

MSmits: it shouldn't matter ThePhantomFirefighter_cdf7

MSmits: if you pick the language you are most familiar with, it will be the right choice

derjack: ohai

MSmits: Astrobytes I have 2 questions about PR2

Astrobytes: go ahead, I'll help if I remember

derjack: and 1 question about pr1/

MSmits: ok, I am wondering, if you lose an owned hex, do you know that you lost it

MSmits: if you dont have sight

Astrobytes: bear with me while I check my code

MSmits: my second question was about symmetric maps, but from checking games it seems some maps are symmetric and some aren't, so i figured that one out

MSmits: seems strange that you get the platinum amount as input since you can't control the buying of pods anyways

Astrobytes: AFAIR yes you know

Astrobytes: the fog will only affect Platinum and enemy PODs

MSmits: it seems i dont know when an opponent captured a neutral hex though

MSmits: the owner stays at -1

MSmits: unless i have sight

MSmits: i dont have a working bot yet, otherwise it would be easy to test

Astrobytes: seems you are correct

MSmits: yeah so you can't even know what you own

MSmits: unless you see it

Astrobytes: No, you know what you own by your units

MSmits: yeah and you can guess where the opponent could have gone with his pods since you last saw them

Astrobytes: Yeah

MSmits: flood-fill style

MSmits: I like this part of the game. Just wondering how make a system for deciding where to send the pods

Astrobytes: Giving me the urge to come back to this game now :D

MSmits: I tend to do that when I ramble on about games :P

Astrobytes: Hungarian method/Kuhn–Munkres

MSmits: where can i find that?

Astrobytes: works well for assigning units iirc

Astrobytes: one of eulers PMs on another game or google, but there's a nice explanation in the PM. I can't remember which contest (clearly a multi-agent one)

MSmits: it's not PR-2. There's 2 reasonably useful PMs, but not that one

MSmits: I don't mind searching for it, there's not many games of this type

Astrobytes: no it isn't PR2, more recent game iirc

MSmits: oh


MSmits: oh that one. Thanks!

MSmits: I got 17th on that one with no clue how to do multi agent stuff

MSmits: I think mostly from the expansion part + the chain ending

Astrobytes: np, I haven't used it myself, but I might come back to PR2 soon

MSmits: Oh he got 4th in that one. Nice one

MSmits: I just doublechecked by hardcoding some moves. Nope you can't see your own hex

MSmits: it shows up as neutral

MSmits: I assume you still get the income

Astrobytes: only if you have units on it

MSmits: you only get the income when you have units on it?

Astrobytes: no I typed that before you added that

MSmits: oh ok

MSmits: you also get your platinum amount as input

MSmits: I guess you can tell from that when you lost a hex with platinum income

MSmits: otherwise i don't even know what the point of that input is

Astrobytes: I remember being confused when I started this too

Astrobytes: But it's been a while

MSmits: Yea, I don't mind re-confusing you.

Astrobytes: :D

Astrobytes: btw, there was an unofficial 'contest' using PR2, forum thread:

MSmits: oh nice find, i will study that too

MSmits: Nerchio added some good info

eulerscheZahl: some comments would be a better fit for the actual game thread not to scatter ideas

Astrobytes: Yeah, he did well in that

MSmits: hey euler

eulerscheZahl: good afternoon

Astrobytes: And true euler, also hi :wave:

MSmits: do you think that Hungarian method/Kuhn–Munkres you used in ice and fire is good for PR-2?

eulerscheZahl: i suggested it to hjax for PR2, he was around rank20 with it at that time

MSmits: sounds good

Astrobytes: hjax used it, it's built in to scipy in python (see the thread I posted, finished 7th)

eulerscheZahl: and kuhn-munkres is even part of the python libraries

Astrobytes: hah!

MSmits: nice

MSmits: I'm using C# for this one though. I don't like python for big programs

MSmits: and it's slower

eulerscheZahl: it was nerchio who got 7th, not hjax

eulerscheZahl: "I came in 7th on the unofficial contest leaderboard, 3rd on the progression leaderboard, and 31st on the multi leaderboard (although a resubmission climbed to 20th this morning)."

Astrobytes: my bad, he was 7th on the unofficial leaderboard

eulerscheZahl: only the multiplayer rank counts :P

MSmits: true

Astrobytes: but it's still effective apparently

eulerscheZahl: that's why i suggested it

MSmits: well it's more effective than nothing for sure. Currently I have nothing. So will give it a shot

eulerscheZahl: sometimes i give good advice. other times i mean it sarcastically and others don't get the joke

eulerscheZahl: once i kept another user busy for 1 or 2 days during the contest to implement something that obviously wouldn't work

MSmits: :grin:

Astrobytes: :rofl:

Astrobytes: it's usually obvious if you take a moment to reflect surely

derjack: such trolling :unamused:

Astrobytes: shush pony

lon_john_ilverjh: is there a list of certification tests?

bollocks32: bean

eulerscheZahl: that would make the certifications even less meaningful, wouldn't it?

derjack: implying they have any meaning now

Urutar: lon_john_ilverjh, you told me my submission is unable to run because of invalid inputs - why is that?

Urutar: Hopefully I'll get an answer at *some* point out of him

Astrobytes: What submission is this?

lon_john_ilverjh: stop spamming me Urutar

Urutar: I'm not? I just asked you questions and you didn't answer... then I stopped writing ya.

Urutar: I'm still curious what the alleged errors are supposed to be, but ehh. If ya don't feel like bothering, no problem^^

JestaBlunt: will that entry code puzzle be available afterward? i missed the start

Astrobytes: Yes.

Astrobytes: The puzzles chosen are not new, they're existing puzzles.

Olgii: hi

ZndrBrok: Urutar

ZndrBrok: Why i can't find anymore your submission ?

eulerscheZahl: because it got approved


ZndrBrok: Nice !

ZndrBrok: Urutar, reason more to ignore people who say things about your submissions and ignore u later :P

ZndrBrok: I love this submission

ZndrBrok: Even if for a noob like me, it's more a puzzle :P

struct: I still feel its a bit hard to tell whats happening on backgammon

antiwonto: [auto] Hey struct, here is a :taco: for loggin in today while it is quiet. You now have 24 tacos

struct: maybe its the animatons

Default avatar.png Kaique69: Hello

eulerscheZahl: just take the CG reverse game as a reference and don't describe the rules at all

jacek: what happened on backgammon, stays on backgammon

jacek: :taco: Automaton2000

antiwonto: [auto] That's a bot. Bots don't eat tacos

Automaton2000: i need some help with the power of thor

struct: I never read backgammon rules

struct: I played a few games and it was simple to understand

struct: maybe the referee might be wrong

eulerscheZahl: that's not a problem when you invent your own games

jacek: or when you have hardcore board games testers

struct: good things there were bots ready

struct: thing*

struct: I need to ask Scarfiled if in this case , black just rolled, he cant play dice 6 first right?

Guya-samaa: hi is there a documentation for contributions i wanna look up how to highlight variables

[R-e-d-n-i-n-j-a]: hi

Ayza: yes, there should be a "?" sign next to any of the required fields when creating a contribution

Ayza: should have everything you need

Guya-samaa: thank you that helps a lot :)

Ayza: np

jacek: :tada:

Wontonimo: when was clash of code introducted to coding game? anyone remember?

eulerscheZahl: long before I registered, Wontonimo

Wontonimo: :taco: eulerscheZahl

antiwonto: [auto] Wontonimo has awarded eulerscheZahl 3 tacos. eulerscheZahl now has 38 taco. Wontonimo now has 4 taco

jacek: coal powered computers era?

Wontonimo: most computers are coal powered in the USA

Wontonimo: oh, i'm wrong. It's only about 18% coal power now in USA

jacek: so, steam-powered

Wontonimo: facts

abt8601: But damn, US has 20% renewable now

Wontonimo: if only they hadn't sold all their water mining rights to bottling companies

Wontonimo: and in completely unrelated news~ , what's with all the sink holes in the USA. It's as if something below the surface is being removed at an alarming rate

Wontonimo: wait ... what if the two were related ... nah, the environmental protection agency would have done something about that right? :rolling_eyes:

PatrickMcGinnisII: Hey

PatrickMcGinnisII: you know I live in Fl right?

PatrickMcGinnisII: sinkhole central

PatrickMcGinnisII: coal ppowered

PatrickMcGinnisII: right wing garbage governor

PatrickMcGinnisII: I have my own water well

PatrickMcGinnisII: water quality has decided declined in 40 yrs, because aquifer is being depleted

PatrickMcGinnisII: decidedly

PatrickMcGinnisII: I've been fighting for super trains and thorium nuclear ... no one cares

PatrickMcGinnisII: EPA is garbage on both sides of the coin, they don't protect anything except profits, and if you want to do anything that messes with profits...u can't do it. new companies can't do it, etc. etc. etc.

PatrickMcGinnisII: US Corps of engineers have messed up fl water ways

PatrickMcGinnisII: Lake Okeechobee should be a paradise, it's a cesspool of chemical runoff

PatrickMcGinnisII: Big Sugar, Big Energy, Privatization interests, and police state mentality run Fl

PatrickMcGinnisII: ok, I'll shut up Wontonimo

jacek: oO

PatrickMcGinnisII: Modern Slavery is real Yo

jacek: right Automaton2000

Automaton2000: nice to have a good eval

PatrickMcGinnisII: I own my house, but pay 3k in taxes for it/yr. That's like paying rent. everything is expensive. Food,gas,licenses, taxes, utilities. you know I pay 3x what u prolly do for internet

**PatrickMcGinnisII is a free elf


PatrickMcGinnisII: ok class is over, test tomorrow

bingler: im an indigo child

**PatrickMcGinnisII pokes Automaton2000

Automaton2000: you don't have enough time to finish it in time

bingler: my skin is purple

Wontonimo: I'd give you a taco PatrickMcGinnisII , but I have no more to give

PatrickMcGinnisII: I'd settle for a better nodecount in DAWG puzzle

BJD: :taco: PatrickMcGinnisll

derjack: oO

Wontonimo: taco bot is broken ;(

Wontonimo: wth, it didn't listen to me earlier either

PatrickMcGinnisII: Didn't pay your bot taxes

Wontonimo: it's running. please try again BJD

PatrickMcGinnisII: :taco: BJD

antiwonto: [auto] PatrickMcGinnisII has awarded BJD 6 tacos. BJD now has 11 taco. PatrickMcGinnisII now has 18 taco

Wontonimo: oh, okay, weird

BJD: :taco: PatrickMcGinnisII

antiwonto: [auto] BJD has awarded PatrickMcGinnisII 10 tacos. PatrickMcGinnisII now has 28 taco. BJD now has 12 taco

Wontonimo: i didn't do anything. so strange

PatrickMcGinnisII: it's too busy bitcoin mining

Wontonimo: tru

BJD: i did 2 L's not 2 i's

Wontonimo: [tab] does autocomplete for names BJD

BJD: oh ok

PatrickMcGinnisII: ²

Wontonimo: i feel like you are whispering numbers, kinda scary

PatrickMcGinnisII: I'm Pat² ... should change my name

bingler: did god write the universe in python

Wontonimo: which god? Thor? Gia? the nameless god, or some other?

Wontonimo: I think Thor would have used COBOL

Wontonimo: the nameless god would have used brainf*ck

bingler: whichever one created this universe

j4at: I used C

bingler: so ur saying black holes could be caused by integer overflow errors

j4at: yes, that's why I limited speed of light

j4at: to 10% of int32 max value

Wontonimo: what makes you think this universe wasn't a group project?

Wontonimo: how did I get roped into this conversation? I guess I'm just chatty today...

j4at: It's too easy to be a group project

Wontonimo: lol

Wontonimo: maybe it was a kindergarten arts-and-crafts for demi-gods

Wontonimo: anyway

Wontonimo: how about those ranks j4at and bingler? you two are not in the top 4000 yet

Wontonimo: have you tried a multi or optimization ?

bingler: I only play clash of code on here

j4at: I don't care about my rank to be real

j4at: I play clash most of the time too

Wontonimo: that won't get your rank any higher bingler nor stretch your skills

j4at: Im working on spider attack AI too

Wontonimo: this last multi called spider attack was fun

bingler: I have other sites I use for doing problems but I appreciate the advice Wontonimo

Wontonimo: you can get pretty far by downloading the starter AI and simply sorting the monsters by distance to your base

j4at: It will get top spot :relieved:

j4at: nocap :3

Wontonimo: I don't see you on the leaderboard j4at , have you submitted anything yet?

j4at: Nope, doing everything offline

Wontonimo: are you using brutaltester or something similar?

j4at: I'm using brutaltester yep

Astrobytes: it might be advisable to pass to bronze at least in the meantime

Astrobytes: Also, hello

Scarfield: oi

jacek: lul

Wontonimo: agreed, rules change up to bronze

j4at: I already know all rules

Astrobytes: yeah but they're not the same up to bronze

Astrobytes: so your bot will crash

j4at: i know all rules of all leagues

Astrobytes: if you try to use spells

Astrobytes: ok, fine. It would just save you a lot of trouble writing different code for 3 leagues

Astrobytes: or 2 leagues, whatever it is

Wontonimo: he knows all the rules

Wontonimo: ;)

jacek: because he reads statements?

eulerscheZahl: there was a guy knowledgeable in "almost alll[sic] languages"

jacek: W?

eulerscheZahl: no, i think it was before your time

eulerscheZahl: found him

Astrobytes: "Pythons"

eulerscheZahl: py2 and 3 maybe?

Scarfield: parselmouth

eulerscheZahl: swifts too

Astrobytes: Possible yet unlikely

Astrobytes: So he's into ornithology and herpetology

eulerscheZahl: but he left years ago

Astrobytes: (birds and snakes, respectively if you were wondering)

Astrobytes: was he actually expert in all of these languages?

Westicles: lanfeust is the real deal though. he has solved every puzzle and no overlap in languages

eulerscheZahl: yes, i noticed. also the extremely hard ones like freecell

Default avatar.png cristhianrzl: sup nerds!!

Wontonimo: thanks! I haven't been complemented in the last hour. You are you fellow nerd?

jacek: is Automaton2000 nerd?

Automaton2000: i think the time is up

Wontonimo: :taco: Automaton2000

antiwonto: [auto] Sorry but you can only award tacos once per day

Automaton2000: i think u need to somehow improve your condition of when to "bank"

Scarfield: Automaton2000 can i take my :taco:s to the bank

Automaton2000: will have to be careful

Wontonimo: yeah, don't drop them on the floor

Scarfield: oof would spark a riot

Scarfield: or a shakedown

Default avatar.png SriniV: oh

Default avatar.png SriniV: what are tacos

Scarfield: SriniV :taco:

antiwonto: [auto] Scarfield has awarded SriniV 1 tacos. SriniV now has 1 taco. Scarfield now has 29 taco

Default avatar.png SriniV: what does that do

Default avatar.png SriniV: Taco

Default avatar.png SriniV: @taco

Scarfield: #Taco

Default avatar.png SriniV: #taco

Default avatar.png SriniV: #Taco

Default avatar.png SriniV: ?

Scarfield: click it, its a gimmick on the chat, basicly silly currency for fun with no other use than being silly

Wontonimo: that's 100% accurate

Astrobytes: Definitely an amusing distraction

Scarfield: one day you will make a crypto taco wonto :p

Wontonimo: hey, I've meant to thank you Astrobytes for the inspiration. It all started with your :taco: gifts

Astrobytes: :grin:

Scarfield: xD

Astrobytes: No thanks required ;)

Scarfield: only :taco:

Astrobytes: heh heh indeed :D

Astrobytes: Great idea though. Non Fungible Taco

Scarfield: "rubbing thumb against index and middle finger gesture"

Astrobytes: Oh. Taco Bell has one.

Scarfield: lul seriously?

Astrobytes: Yeah, just googled it

Scarfield: :rofl:

Scarfield: too late wonto

Astrobytes: Never too late. Just has to be a better one. Bigger, even. The biggest and bestest non-fungible taco there is. So big and best you will be unable to comprehend it :P

Scarfield: people tell me its the best, smart people.

Astrobytes: :rofl:

struct: Hi Scarfield

struct: I have a backgammon question

Scarfield: le yo

Scarfield: sure

struct: Black just rolled and its his turn to play


struct: He must play dice 4 first right_

struct: *?

Scarfield: no i dont think so, havent played for a long time though, can check. but c19 can move 4 and 6 first, then c19 4

Scarfield: you cant move c21 with a 4 though, since c19 has pieces.

struct: How will I code this

struct: yeah

Scarfield: hmm

Scarfield: its only legal to move out with an exact dice hit if there are pieces on cells further away

struct: The problem here is that you still have another dice

struct: Imo you should move the dice 4 first

Scarfield: if there are no pieces further away, and dice >= to cells from home can move a piece out

Scarfield: its not the way the rules work, but you are the creator

struct: I know the end result ends up being the same

Scarfield: not if there were only 1 piece on c19

struct: yeah

Scarfield: hmm in that case actually yes

Scarfield: hmm true, i cant see a problem here actually

Scarfield: no if there is 1 piece on c19, a 6 will get it home, then a 4 will get a piece from c21 home

struct: I got this rule wrong then

struct: Because I force the player to play dice 4 first

Scarfield: sorry im tired

jacek: hello tired, im jacek

Scarfield: not dad o0

struct: ok I dont think I need to change much

struct: I just need to check highest dice instead of lowest

Scarfield: i think the simplest way to explain the end game dice/move rules are something like this: for any piece that has pieces further away from home, you can only move it <= its cell count away from home

Scarfield: if no pieces behind a dice >= its cells from home, it gets out

struct: thanks for explaining

struct: lol ludii backgammon doesnt even have this rule

struct: it just doesnt let you move

Scarfield: you have to hit exact dice rolls?

struct: yeah lol

jacek: i wonder if this is any of use for meh

struct: if (highest_dice >= highest_piece)

struct: this sounds right Scarfield?

struct: I had if (lowest_dice >= highest_piece)

Scarfield: i dont know how you are implementing it, you mean "if (highest_dice >= highest_piece)" move this first?

struct: I think it works

struct: good enoguh

struct: I dont check highest dice now

struct: I check for each dice

struct: if its higher than the highest piece that it can score

Scarfield: good, thats the best, you can get in tricky situations, where there is only really one good move


Rafarafa: if f is a boolean, f=1-f is not just f=~f? (python)

struct: 4C18 and then score with C19?

Scarfield: something like this situation, white has a piece "dancing", moving 4 from c18, then 6 from c19 is the only good thing to do

Scarfield: exactly yea :)

struct: brb

Scarfield: xD

jacek: :upside_down:

antiwonto: [auto] ':upside_down:' was defined as ' ɥǝllo '

jacek: apparently fox already has implemented bot

jacek: but in this situation didnt print action

jacek: (white)

Ayza: Rafarafa, true = 1 and false = 0

Ayza: so if f==True then f-1 = 0

Ayza: hope thats what you mean

struct: How many more bugs did I create just now

Ayza: nvm, pretty sure thats not what you meant you know that already if you did 66 py puzzles

Darleanow: Hey every1

LelouchVC2: how many bugs did u want to create?

struct: yes

struct: Scarfield do you have any link describing this rule?

struct: I cant find anything mentioning this

Scarfield: will look for it now


Scarfield: under "bearing off"

struct: thanks

Scarfield: np :) going afk though

struct: cya

Scarfield: cya, might be back later, but probably not

PatrickMcGinnisII: How come i can print International chars, but not Ord them

jacek: utf16?

PatrickMcGinnisII: basic mb_internal_encoding is UTF-8

PatrickMcGinnisII: I was able to setup a BASE52 encoding scheme before, php only handles base32. but I don't see why I can't use strings of utf chars to store larger numbers

PatrickMcGinnisII: they chr, but won't ord


PatrickMcGinnisII: hmm, wait a minute...might be working somehow... ahh phpwants them in arrays strings

jacek: oh you mean php not python/

Astrobytes: PHP == Please Help Patrick

Husoski: PatrickMcGinnisII Could this be what you need?

PatrickMcGinnisII: $a=IntlChar::ord($s[$i]);

PatrickMcGinnisII: yes been doing it

PatrickMcGinnisII: lol Astrobytes

Astrobytes: :grin:

PatrickMcGinnisII: an array of utf characters isn't efficient

Husoski: The docs *say* it's supposed to work.

struct: **php ins't**

struct: isn't

PatrickMcGinnisII: yes you just can't take a string "ȚțȜȝȞȟȠȡȢȣȤȥȦȧȨȩ" and get the ord values

PatrickMcGinnisII: has to be array ['T', ... etc.

PatrickMcGinnisII: and the way php stores arrays, forget about it

PatrickMcGinnisII: a:16:{i:0;s:2:"Ț";i:1;s:2:"ț";i:2;s:2:"Ȝ";i:3;s:2:"ȝ";i:4;s:2:"Ȟ";i:5;s:2:"ȟ";i:6;s:2:"Ƞ";i:7;s:2:"ȡ";i:8;s:2:"Ȣ";i:9;s:2:"ȣ";i:10;s:2:"Ȥ";i:11;s:2:"ȥ";i:12;s:2:"Ȧ";i:13;s:2:"ȧ";i:14;s:2:"Ȩ";i:15;s:2:"ȩ";}

PatrickMcGinnisII: strings seem the only way to pseudo direct mem access

PatrickMcGinnisII: I'm losing my mind

PatrickMcGinnisII: I need the power of C++

struct: hmm can't help my php knowledge is not a lot

PatrickMcGinnisII: tx for trying, laterz peepz

PatrickMcGinnisII: $s[]=IntlChar::chr($i); works

PatrickMcGinnisII: $s.=IntlChar::chr($i); converts it

PatrickMcGinnisII: i guess

PatrickMcGinnisII: wierd

jacek: happy friday the 13th

PatrickMcGinnisII: oh no tomorrow is my anniversary with the GF

PatrickMcGinnisII: yup, laterz
