    I'm trying to work out the details of one. I'll post a new thread if I figure out what exactly I want to do. It'll be a maze solving-round robin-brawling sort of thing. I'll call it "Maze Brawler" and as soon as I figure out how exactly the finer points of it work, I'll put up a thread.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    That's not a bug, it's just overactive loss avoidance!

    Agreed! The only problem with the competition was the low turnout. Win or lose its fun and you learn something. Besides, don't expect anymore big wins from me in future competitions. I admit that even though this is definately my strongest AI, I have written a couple connect four AI's in the past in various languages so already had an idea of what works and what doesn't.

    and give Sang-drax some rep too for hosting such a cool tournament!

    Next time we need to try and get more participants though, maybe rep would be a good insentive. Rep for participants would encourage newbers to submit entries, you dont need a state of the art AI to compete in these types of contests. Anyway, its rep all around from me, ill hit PJ twice for winning though

    I've downloaded the file, but I don't understand where AI kicks in... could someone please explain in detail how AI in c++ works and how you were supposed to make a program for this competition? Thanks
