Game scheduler bug - 2 games run at once?

Postby formicivorous » Mon Nov 21, 2011 3:48 am

Hi,

According to my profile page, my bot played in 2 different games (110412 and 110413) against the same opponent at the same time.

It's also worth noting that in both games, my bot timed out on turn 1 (not turn 0) during it's first prcoessing step which never takes more than a few milliseconds on my PC (including with the exact same map used in these games). (I know this because my bot writes to the error log before and after this step and says how long it took.

Yeah, there is a known race condition in the matchup generator such that it will cause multiple games about 2% of the time. As far as the timeout I'd check your input parsing speed, the multi hill maze maps can stress that on the first turn. The Java starter bot in particular is known to have quite a slow parser.
