Version 1.1 of the Game Playing Software available now!

Postby Jochen » Fri May 17, 2013 12:26 am

The new version includes some addition to the vision module: white birds and black birds can now be detected as well as TNT boxes. We also added recognition of the game score.

But most importantly, the new version includes the client/server interface that will be used for the actual competition.
You can continue developing your agent using the standalone version (new standalone version is included as well), but eventually you will have to integrate the client/server interface. During the competition, all games will be run on the game server while all agents run on client computers. All interaction with the game has to be according to the communication protocol we provide. The available commands are specified in the document included in the zip file.

Please download the new version from

To use the client/server version on your computer, simply start Angry Birds Chrome as usual, then start the server software, and once the server is running start the client software in a new window. If you run the server on a different computer, you need to specify the server IP as well. More instructions can be found in the README file.

Good luck with your agent development. If you have any questions or comments, please post them here in the forum.
