Ok, so I registered on the Google AI forum yesterday but still haven't got my activation e-mail, and the #aichallenge channel isn't very alive to help me.
I have tested both of the CL starter packs and I can't get them to run locally - the bots just crash. If you entered the contest, please post how (if) you got your bot to run and the code you used. I just added "python LispBot'MyBot.lisp" to the play_one_game.cmd file.
I use Windows with SBCL (v 1.0.40 and 50). (and Clisp)
