Console Bot Contest


So after setting up the webpage I've finally launched the Lua Console Bot Contest where you have to write a bot and compete against other bots in playing console games.

It all started after some mainstream emulators were fitted with Lua, a scripting language. I was a member of one of those projects and Lua actually did what I was trying to do, and better. So I was thrilled.

Now, a few months later, I've started this contest. Partially to let people see what kind of cool stuff can be done with Lua and partially because I'm just really curious myself what people come up with.

I'm not sure whether I'll compete in it myself. It seems a little weird to me since I'll be judging the others. But we'll see how things go. The deadline is set for 2 months, that should be more than enough time for everybody :)
