Re: Re: math variables lenght From:

it could also be very useful if he would be working with a team, and use a team variable to hold the map... that would be sweet.. But from what we hear from Robert Jessop, it won't work...
Davide: if you do get that to work, let us know...

> There is no set length limit to the storage size of a variable in A.I. Wars (other than your PC's memory), but there is a computational limit to a 'long integer' in math calculations. It may be possible using more than one variable.
> Most Cybug programmers don't attempt mapping the arena since the time it takes to calculate and use this data leaves the Cybug open to attack before it can make meaningful use out of the data. In some cases they do check a few points on the map with the GPS Scan to detect which common map may be in use and then run preprogrammed paths to get to their favorite defensive position. On the other hand, if the Cybug you are writing is for a specific challenge like solving a maze, then I can see why you're interested.
