O1's random thoughts 1: Who invented the IRL style?
« on: August 26, 2018, 05:04:27 PM »
As commonplace as this style is, it is kind of in the dark as to who exactly came up with it. I do realize that I may have played a role with my realistic designs before the style became commonplace but there is no way I was close to the first. Who do you think made the first IRL bot, how far back does this style of building go in DSL?

I'd prefer to ban the creator of DSL-S, then people wouldn't complain about the lack of hosts and IRL, when they could be hosting themself

Complaining is easy. Hosting is also easy but also slightly more effort.

it's been around since the dawn of ra2, just didn't get popular until like 2015 or so
the main reason was the release of ra2cf cause it made it stupid easy

ribbs was the guy who held the first irl tournament but i dont remember if stagfish's ai pack happened before or after that

i know thyrus was building irl since the beginning

im sure you can trace the lineage back to before that but those three kind of got the ball rolling imo

2009.

Though it's still likely that there was IRL building before that. And it's also reasonable to assume that many builders built in an IRL-esque style before being influenced by other users. If that's true, then there isn't really an inventor of IRL. It's just something that has gotten to be more developed and recognizable over the years.

IRL has been the dominant meta since around 2012/13. The only thing that's changed is that the other metas are now almost completely dead

Surely the answer to this is the guys who developed the game and made the stock AI.

When I came here no one really built IRL bots. Stock was going stronger and so did DSL-S. I played RA2 for several years before I joined and I was always building what is known as IRL today (or poor DSL-S)
I wouldn't say I invented IRL but I guess I had some influence in it becoming popular back in the day. I was criticised for my bots not being combat  efficient until IRL became a thing

IIRC, Ribbs's tournament was pretty much the start of IRL as something mainstream. but yes it existed since the beginning

you not being able to build well for it hardly makes it bad

DSL-s has been around since the beginning of DSL. hard to say specifically 'who' made it
