I'm moving the time to 5pm EST on Thursday because I'm an idiot and didn't realize I had stuff to do Thursday night.

Yay, I don't have to wake up early on Friday! 8h difference in timezones is rough.

I thought it was a "tick" bug. Would have been funnier.

Not smart enough for that level of wordplay, I just went "dur, what's a finnish bug?"
It's a shame, "Punkki" would've been a cool name.

Ah I must have mixed Kirppu and Punkki together. Kirppu is pretty nice too. My bug was called snowFlake by the similar reasoning. Though maybe it'd been more fun as "lumiHiutale", at least for listening people try to pronounce it.

Actually Pyro, you can get random values that are not just 1/2/3/4, if you use a "cmath" statement. My bug with the big long lines used that a little (though not because of the floating point values, just to tiebreak some binary decisions in part of the formulas).

It'd be nice if some bugs were posted here to after the contest. Would probably learn a lot from different designs.

I could definitely post my code here after the contest. Also, I only included a password because it seemed standard to do so. To save the trouble of breaking it, it's "YouMonster" (without the quotes). My throwaway passwords tend to be video game references. ("I think we can put our differences behind us. For science. You monster.")

Looks like all of the old episodes have already disappeared from twitch. Good to be present if you don't want to miss them.

Obviously this didn't happen. There was an emergency with a friend and I had to go help. Unfortunately, this overlapped with the time I had intended to stream.

The real next stream will be moved to tomorrow at 8pm EST.

I'm really enjoying the tournament! I usually catch the video's a day or two after they are posted.

Little known fact, my inspiration for this game was an old Origin Systems Game called OMEGA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_(video_game) I played the hell out of it on my C64 back in the late 80's!

I never really had the chance to observe users navigate my games user interface. Most of its design was based on what made sense to me, I've learned a lot of lessons since the 90's, the 3D engine was a big update I did for it around 2003 and a tweak here and there since then (mostly done when I localized it for a company in China). It's kind of painful to watch the old school way I patched my menus together! Many options were requested back when it was new by players in the old tournament forums. :) I'm glad you figured out the check box for the IFF disable option!

The strategy node has its settings on the 'Music video and other settings' button. There is an option to define its position (looks like you had the center location which is the default) or un-check it to make it random. I look forward to seeing how it all turns out! If any of the participants want to send me their Cybug's after this is over I can add them to the monthly tournament on the TacticalNeuronics.com site. No prizes for winning, just the satisfaction of seeing your bug win and collect awards (if it can!) Just email them to John.Reder@TacticalNeuronics.com the tournament results link is here: http://tacticalneuronics.com/content/Results.asp - It's battles are automated but I have to kick it off manually so the execution date moves around a bit.

It is worthy of note that Willhart lives in Finland and rarely remembers that other human beings exist in other timezones.

The next one will be MONDAY at 9pm EST.

I swear I forget about these every time, despite telling myself to make a mental note, and in the rare cases where I remember, they get rescheduled, whereupon I forget the rescheduled version. But I guess when you're on a streak, it's important not to ruin it.
