Morningside AI Test Environment - 2009.9.30
A board-game-like environment for testing AIs.
Run this program as an offline server that runs a miniature world similar to a board game. It's a test environment though, not really a game. External programs control the characters by reading and writing text files to its player_io directory. There's a set of sample tests; can you design a program that can beat them? See also http://kschnee.xepher.net/code/morningside/ for a sample AI and human interface program. Without those you'll need to manually create text files to play; instructions included. If the included links break, go there to find the latest versions.
Update includes demo AI and human interface code; EXEs still available separately for those at http://kschnee.xepher.net/code/morningside/ . Bug fixes, new "eat" command; keys and doors.
