netris-sample-robot - sample robot for netris
The netris-sample-robot is a sample implementation of the robot
protocol. It plays quite well but isn't too hard to beat. The robot
should be started from netris with the option -r to connect or wait for
another player to join. You can also let two robots play against each
other in that way, if you like.
-l Writes some log information into the file log in the current
working directory. If it can't it bails out.
To start the netris-sample-robot waiting for another connection with
logfile use the following line:
netris -w -r 'netris-sample-robot -l'
You then just have to start netris somewhere else which connects to
One known bug of the netris-sample-robot is that it hangs quite often.
This was already filed as a bugreport against the package so please
refrain from doing so again. If you have an idea why this happens or
know a solution how to fix it feel free to mail us.
