Flappy Bird hack using Reinforcement Learning

You can view a summary of the game and the algorithm here!

Running the code yourself

  • Download the code and unzip it

  • Open a terminal and navigate to the folder

    cd ~/Downloads/FlappyBirdRL-master

  • Start a simple server using python

    python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

    More details here.

  • In a browser navigate to the local server's address (default is 0.0.0.:8000)


  • Did you start a server?

If you just opened the index.html page you might have an error in the console regarding origin requests. Right click anywhere on the screen, click Inspect and then look at the Console.

Does it have the following error? Example screenshot

Failed to load file:///Users/.../res/flappyAtlas/atlas.txt: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https."

The issue: The page tries to load a file from disk but most modern browsers block that as a security risk.

Solution: Run a local server. Use the instructions above to start a server locally in 2 minutes.
