    Project mention: I created a CLI tool to convert DSON (Darkest Dungeon proprietary save file format) to JSON | /r/darkestdungeon | 2022-09-27

    This is a hobby project of mine named "Darkest Savior", which is a tool that converts the save files of the game to a readable format (JSON), and vice versa. Even though robojumper did the original work, I still think it is a fun (and probably useful) project anyway, as I learned a lot from the building process. Having proper TUI and GUI is a plan for the future.

  • Ludii

    The Ludii general game system, developed as part of the ERC-funded Digital Ludeme Project.

    Project mention: Can an AI program design an engine? | /r/chessvariants | 2023-03-04

    Have you tried Ludii The AI engine will play any game on the platform, and it is a small Java program. The AI is not very good, and you would need to write a rules file, which can be tricky. But there are a lot of existing templates to modify. Though I don’t know about 4 way chess, which is what your game seems to be. I am curious about the rules. I tried the links but one didn’t work at all and the other just showed me a picture. I think the current AIs would be assuming normal chess and would get very confused. I don’t think AI is advanced enough yet where we can input novel game rules and get a game out, let alone a bunch of code for an engine for a tricky 4 way chess variant. Maybe in a few years.
