is it really that easy
cause i am not the best coder
Trust me it's really easy to get started with robocode. Once you get a hang of reading the Java API, what your bot can do is only limited by your imagination. I'd suggest you stick with the default bots till you're a little familiar with the whole environment then move on to the user bots or you might get a little freaked by how they "OWN" you in the beginning (Sorry a bit of DotA lingo has slipped into my vocabulary
) . Also enable the error showing checkbox on your Java compiler options so you can understand what errors are present in your code (It's been 2 years since I last used robocode so I don't remember EXACTLY how to get there, but if you fiddle around with the different tabs you'll find it).
JAVA! Thanks for showing us this!
\m/ I never was very happy in C or C++ cause I started off with Java!!
