Playing Tron as a human

Postby pierrejoel » Wed Feb 24, 2010 12:12 am

Is there a website or a piece of software with witch I could play tron as a human, preferably against decent bots or other players?

Thanks!

Maybe you could write a bot that read the move to do from a file and another application that just write into a file the move you want to play... Just an idea :). (files or any IPC...)

See the python tournament engine, it is capable of doing this.
But you need a bot to plugin on the other side, or it won't be very interesting.

You mean a multiplayer game like this:

(great LAN game - kills a lunch hour at work )

if you want to play against your own bots the easiest would be to write your own app though.

Thanks! No, I don't want to play against my bot, I just want to get a hang of the game.
