Enter the Competition

  If you would like to enter your robot into the roborumble, here's how:

  1. In the main battle window, choose Robot-Package Robot For Upload. Choose the bot you want to enter and package it. If you have done this correctly, the gray compiling window should pop up.
  2. Make an account here - http://www.robocoderepository.com/. The server is down once in while, but connection is generally alright.
  3. Upload a bot. You do not need to give the package or your name - these fields are optional. When it asks you to choose your file, you must pick the .jar file which you packaged in step one.
  4. Go to the Bots page. Then click the bot you just uploaded. It should be under the new bots section.
  5. Once you are on your own bot page, look in the website adress. At the end of it, it should have something like "BotID=3724"
  6. Highlight the number and copy it.
  7. Go to http://robowiki.net/wiki/RoboRumble/Participants.
  10. Once there, you should see a long list of bot names and jar files.
  11. Log into your RoboWiki account. If you do not have one, create one and log in with that. You should now be able to edit the page by clicking the "edit" tab at the top.
  12. Now comes the crucial part - inserting your robot where it should go and inserting it correctly. This is a sample insert(my own bot):

  sp.Megas.Trident 2.1,http://www.robocoderepository.com/BotFiles/4178/sp.Megas.Trident_2.1.jar
 
  The first part of the insert, before the comma, is your bot name, including package and version number, with no .jar at the end. There is no underscore between the bot name and the version number. Then comes a comma, after which comes the download URL. Note: there can be no space between the comma and the download URL. The URL format looks like this:

  http://www.robocoderepository.com/BotFiles/-paste the id number you copied from the your bot page-/botName_versionNumber.jar
 
Note: you must put your bot in alphabetical order.

  Let's do an example. Say my bot jar was me.awesome_1.0.jar and my bot ID was 4763. My entry would look like:
  me.awesome 1.0,http://www.robocoderepository/BotFiles/4763/me.awesome_1.0.jar
 
  Anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours later you should see your bot in: http://darkcanuck.net/rumble/Rankings?version=1&game=roborumble  by running a quick search.
