What is happening with the bot tournament? The rules mention a linux account by February 8th and that the program must be uploaded by the 22nd.
 
I haven't received anything.

I'm not really involved but I do know other developers reported getting the email a while back. Also the following notice has been at the top of the gameroom announcements for over a week:
 
Quote:
Bot developers in the WCC should have received your Linux account info by email. If you did not please contact Omar.

 
If you can't find the email (maybe in the spam folder?) I'd suggest contacting Omar.

I used the contact form on the website, but I haven't heard from anyone yet.

I will forward the email I got to you. I'd just post it here but it includes login information.
 
Edit: I'll use the forum in case you aren't getting any arimaa.com related emails for some reason. Check your messages.

Thanks, I was able to login to the machine with that information. I'll try to upload my program tomorrow, though by looking at the README it seems it needs to implement the 'getMove' interface, rather than using AEI. I'll have to see what needds to be changed, and if I have time to change the code, I did not expect this...

No, you should be able to use aei, or any protocol you want, and Janzert stated that he specifically designed gameroom.py to be able to easily replace the bot scripts on the server.
See Feb 18 chat.

Yes, aei seems to work fine and is easy to set up.  Here's roughly what I did:
 
rename Bot to Bot_old
unzip aei.zip into a new Bot directory
rename gameroom.py to bot
chmod 744 bot
rename gameroom_example.cfg to gameroom.cfg
customize gameroom.cfg to my bot
create the Bot/logs and Bot/running directories (didn't work without this)
 
Seems like creating a statically linked executable is potentially the most troublesome step. I was fortunate that my bot is written in Go which is statically linked by default and worked first time.

I did something like that and it seems to be working.
 
It is somewhat troubling that I still haven't seen any official email. If it wasn't for browni3141 's forwarded email I wouldn't have been able to do anything.
