Mule Auction AI

Postby searle » 30 Apr 2007, 11:39

Hello Kroah!

I'm currently playing around with a port of Mule on Java.

i'm using your documentation for a rough understanding and then i
translate the 6502 assembly code to java.

one of the next steps would be auction ai.
unfortunately that's about the only big gap in your
documentation. do you have any plans on analysing that part?

cheers,
searle

Welcome Searle,

Glad to hear that, i'll try to help you as much as i can.

Even if the code is mostly well done, there's still lots of goto statements. I think you should mix between direct translation (formulae...) and adaptation (main game logic).

Doh... I feared this one.
Sincerly, not presently. It's near the end of my (long) todo list. But i'm curious to know this part of the game, so i'm still motivated to work on it.

Have a nice WE.

Thanks a lot, I'm full with questions already :-)

Yes, that's what I think too. At the moment, I'm trying to get all the calc* stuff running, the base for all AI.

So it's not OFF the to-do list, which is good. I hope I don't have to digg into this as well, but lets see. It will take some time until I'll touch it anyway. I built a tool to get me into the source more easily, maybe it's helpful for you, too:

hu... Even if i understand the language, i'm impressed by what you were able to do with it. Effectively, it must help you to dig out the information in this big file.

I've just sent you a PM by the way.
