Fighting Game AI Competition

Intelligent Computer Entertainment lab., Ritsumeikan University

Welcome to the

Fighting Game AI Competition

We are running a brand new competition in 2022 at CoG 2022. The information below is about the competition run during 2013-2021.

-- a step towards general fighting game AIs that are strong against any opponents at any play modes using any character data --

You are invited to develop an AI controller for Java based fighting game "FightingICE," also wrapped for Python by Py4J. Our official API for OpenAI Gym is available (updated on July 8, 2019). The current version of FightingICE also supports development of visual-based AI controllers. Please submit your AI controller and beat down your opponents to win the competition! The competition and the platform are organized and maintained by Intelligent Computer Entertainment Lab., Ritsumeikan University.

Since Intelligent Computer Entertainment Lab. (ICE Lab.), Ritsumeikan University, is the competition organizer, there will be no official participants from ICE Lab., but we will provide sample AIs for reference.

Game resources are from The Rumble Fish 2 with the courtesy of Dimps Corporation. Lower resolution graphics than the original ones are used in the released FightingICE for the sake of AI research purposes.
