How to play SOCCER
The SOCCER source contains a complete
framework for a SOCCER game system including debug versions of the
simulator model and view and team components so it can run as it is
(although the game won't be entertaining and the model ignores physics). To
run the game as it stands, follow the following steps (this is written
assuming that you're using Eclipse).
- Unzip the source into your Eclipse workspace.
- Create a new Java project called Soccer, selecting "Create project from
existing source", as illustrated:
- Select MainUI.java in the simulator package and invoke "Run as ... java
application". The main Simulator UI will appear:
The pull-down boxes will list all available views
- Select MainUI.java in the team package and invoke "Run as ... java
application" twice (you need two teams to play). The main team
selection UI will appear
The pull-down boxes list all available teams and
all possible simulator names.
- Click "Go" on the simulator, and "Connect" then "Go" on each team and
the game will start.
- The debug simulator view has only one button that causes it to output
the state of the game as reported by the model.
- The debug team can be used to send requests to the simulator. The
arguments for the requests are described in Section 3.2.1 of the SOCCER document.
- Log files are produced by the simulator and team in the user home
directory. They are called soccer_simulator.log and soccer_team.log.
- To end the game, click "End" in both teams, then "Disconnect" in the
team.MainUI and finally "Stop" the simulator.
