AI bot IDE
Description An Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for AI bot development.
Lead IMP


Intended to facilitate the setup for aspiring bot developers, this module aims to provide an integrated development environment consisting of all required tools to kick-start development. Ready to be used out of the box!

It is based on Ubuntu and contains:

  • Programming IDE (such as Eclipse / IntelliJ IDEA in case of Java)
  • OpenBW game engine
  • Type-Safe Java API for BWAPI
  • Multi-Instance Launcher
  • TorchCraft
  • Example bot

In case you intend to use the original Brood War game instead of the OpenBW engine, you will have to provide the required files yourself, that is, own a legal copy of Brood War (it’s free). The original game does not run on Linux.
