What should we submit?
After you write your AI program, make the following two shell scripts: (1)
compile.sh specifying the way to build the execution file from the source code, and (2)
run.sh specifying the way to run the execution file built by compile.sh. Then, compress all the source files and the shell script files to an archive file and submit the archive file.
In our match-up server on Linux, the submitted archive file is uncompressed and
run.sh in it are executed to build and run the AI program, respectively. NOTICE: in the game of this year, two AI processes are executed for controlling two agents, a samurai and a dog. Note that these two processes are run by executing the single script run.sh twice. Each process can know which agent to control using information from the game management system after the process is started (See the game rules for more details).
See Software environment information for commands that can be used in the shell scripts.
We accept a zip, tar, tgz, or tar.gz archive as a submission file.
You can check whehter the submission file works on the match-up server using "Submission Trial Page". Please check your file using this page before your submission. You need first to make your registration following the above-mentioned instructions to get access information of this page. See also Technical Information.
