Make sure to install Java and Python. To pit SimpleTronBot against one of the default bots run the following command:

$ java -jar uwaterloo-aichallenge-utils/engine/Tron.jar <map> <cmd_bot1> <cmd_bot2> [delay-between-turns] [max-move-time] 

# Here is an example between #1: WallHugger and #2: SimpleTronBot 

java -jar uwaterloo-aichallenge-utils/engine/Tron.jar \
          uwaterloo-aichallenge-utils/maps/toronto.txt \
          "java -jar uwaterloo-aichallenge-utils/example_bots/WallHugger.jar" \
