FAQs / Troubleshooting

**3. Where are the Test methods? Due to the explosion of GVGAI competition tracks, we have distributed the main methods in different classes across the code hierarchy:

  • Single Player Planning track:
  • 2-Player Planning track:
  • Level Generation track:
  • Rule Generation track:

**2. How do I upload my controller? What files or folder structure do I need? First of all, your controller and any auxiliary files you create should be in a single package folder with your username. For example, if your username is "abc", you should have a package folder named "abc" in the project. Your entire project layout should look something like this:

- abc
- tracks
- core
- ontology
- tools

Then, all you need to do is to zip and upload the "abc" folder. No other folders/files are necessary.

3. I am getting the error javac1.8 class not found when running Eclipse and ANT on build.xml This is likely because the ANT version that is installed with your version of Eclipse is old. You can easily fix this problem by doing the following:

  • Download the archive of the latest version of ANT (Tested with Ant 1.9.4)
  • Extract the archive onto a local folder on your computer (e.g., /Users/gvgai/ant/apache-ant-1.9.4/)
  • In Eclipse, go to Eclipse -> Preferences -> Ant -> Runtime
  • Click on "Ant Home'' button on the right.
  • Select the folder, which you extracted ANT into (e.g., /Users/gvgai/ant/apache-ant-1.9.4/)
