This is the currently active news site for RoboWar - go here for questions and
discussion on RoboWar.
- Mac RoboWar HQ
Official site for old Mac RoboWar maintained by Lucas
Dixon, Ryan Govostes (and me).
- Theory of Robot Design
The popular, influential and famous Theory of Robot Design by
Eric Foley has been
reuploaded to SourceForge! There's some updates to it
too. Win versions of most of the sample robots are also available. Still,
there's a lot of things missing in it =(. Contribution is welcome!
- Paul Hansen's
Features an excellent and thorough tutorial by RoboMaster Paul Hansen. Also
provided is an archive of Code Scraps, such as full search loops, that you can
use for your robots.
Download of the original version of RoboWar (Mac
only) and the archives of the Official RoboWar
Tournament. This site also hosts the most recent tournaments and Prf+noff's
version of RoboWar (a modified version of 4.5.2).
Optimizing Robots in RoboWar
Read how to optimize your robot by RoboMaster Tom Cornell. Very useful in you
would like to take that step from RoboWarrior to RoboMaster. Also contains
links to other similar sites.
Fishman's RoboWar site
Is an old, but nice site for RoboWar
by the Abbott tribe.
RoboWar sourcefore page

By Austin Barton, most of the download links are
broken, but he has a nice tutorial.
Seems to be a little under construction still. Has some useful code bits,
Other RoboWar Windows ports
- Disch C++
Can mostly run old bots, and doesn't support interrupts or doppler.
Wagner's RoboWar II
Nice stable port, but does not have full backwards compatibility. In other
words, you probably have to change the code of your old bots a lot to make
them run at RoboWar II.
Lucas Dixon's JRoboWar
Currently at Alfa-stage. I doubt it'll ever leave alfa stage either. However,
it's Java, so it's totally cross platform. And you can run most simple bots.
