Machine visual learning A.I. DOOM deathmatch:

“Ratcliffe told me he took a hands-off approach to training, preferring the agent to learn by itself what enemies are, what death is, what health packs are and so on. "I think it's dangerous to start encoding your own domain knowledge into these agents as it inhibits their ability to generalize across games," he explained. "I simply gave it a reward for killing opponents and increasing its health, ammo or armor."”

https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/22/facebook-and-intel-reign-supreme-in-doom-ai-deathmatch/

What we're seeing here isn't standard bot code. This is an alien mind that learned to play DOOM by watching pixels, and by receiving rewards when getting frags, or picking up health/armor:

P.S. and before players like Beatdown get confused: 'handicap' is 100% a server-side feature. (Q2 servers never ask clients opinion on damage calculations.)
 

Admin

January 17, 2021, 03:22:04 PM
It's a customization on our FFA servers allowing you to increase difficulty by reducing the damage you deal to opponents. Setting handicap 50 means your shots do half damage.

What's handicap? I just saw a player (ateateate) change handicap from 100 to 69? I've never heard of that setting before.
