A.I. for racing/shooting

Post by HippiHippo »

I am in need of A.I. coding to make cars race on a track and A.I. for shooting when in front or behind another A.I. or player.

And is it hard to make a scrolling map?

There are examples for scrolling maps around.

The difficulty of the AI depends a lot on the specs of your game. You may want to give some specifics. I assume something akin to the 2D top-down racers by Codemasters (Micromachines) or Atari's Supersprint?

scrolling is easy, just look at LUMO's example at his page.

AI is a wide field and you should check
1) some LUA examples
2) web resources for other games/blogs/essays about AI

there's a short "tut" by themariokarters, i think either at QJ or maxconsole

for a simple ai use some randoms. for example create a random object where the outcome is either a 1 or 2. if 1 shoot if 2 dont. same for speed. 1 accel 2 dont. thats pretty basic but itll do for now. you could check my drag racer game(can be found on pspupdates) for my simple ai

AI is code used to control NPC's learn to code. Based on your engine you use your ai will act accordingly.
