I just tried this for the first time and got the following error:

Code
[MAME]> r = require "robotron"
error: 	./Plugins/robotron.lua:8: attempt to index a nil value (local 'cpu')

I'm using 0.217 on macOS Catalina.

Edit: Oops, my error, messed ROM path up. It works now, it is really awesome stuff.

I tried out robotron plugin and I got an error.

Lua 5.4
Copyright (C) Lua.org, PUC-Rio

[MAME]> r = require "robotron"
error: error loading module 'robotron' from file '/home/mitchell/.mame/plugins/robotron/init.lua':
/home/mitchell/.mame/plugins/robotron/init.lua:7: unexpected symbol near '<'
[MAME]>

I guess it out of date for the MAME.

I'm guessing that you're using the scripts from https://github.com/grunt2084/robotron-ai

All you really need to do is to change a couple ways to refer to objects and remove the () calls on machine()

then it seems to work.


from:
local screen = manager:machine().screens[":screen"]
local cpu = manager:machine().devices[":maincpu"]
local mem = cpu.spaces["program"]
local ioport = manager:machine():ioport()



to:
local screen = manager.machine.screens[":screen"]
local cpu = manager.machine.devices[":maincpu"]
local mem = cpu.spaces["program"]
local ioport = manager.machine.ioport

Same error as before. I tried those changes. I'm not worry about it. There too many / and some others.

I think you're trying to treat it as a plugin when it's just a regular .lua file. I put robotron.lua directly in the plugins directory.

Then just

r = require "robotron"
r.start(4) -- give it a number from 1 to 4 for algorithm number


Bob-Z's version is basically the same changes.

I fix it. I downloaded it wrong. Put all kind of crap in the file. Even my email for some reason. I downloaded it right this time with me log out of the website. That was so weird on what the website did. I was using the DownThemAll addon for the browser. All I had to do is to look for the download tab on the site. Anyway I solved the issue. smile

I didn't see the vectorkong on the list. https://github.com/10yard/vectorkong

For Ubuntu, Fedora and Nobara. (I tested this on these.)

Right click on the mame folder and then bring up the terminal. Paste this command from below and then hit enter to load it.

./mame dkong -plugin vectorkong -video opengl

For Windows.

mame dkong -plugin vectorkong -video opengl

How I get the Nibbler to work?

I keep getting the Maze1.lua missing error.

[mitchell@nobara-pc mame]$ ./mame -autoboot_script /home/mitchell/.mame/plugins/nibbler/nibbler.lua nibbler -w
Ignoring MAME exception: Error running autoboot script /home/mitchell/.mame/plugins/nibbler/nibbler.lua: runtime error
cannot open Maze1.lua: No such file or directory

Fatal error: Error running autoboot script /home/mitchell/.mame/plugins/nibbler/nibbler.lua: runtime error
cannot open Maze1.lua: No such file or directory

I even tried this.

./mame nibbler -console -window

r = require "nibbler" "Maze1"

=====================Edited

I got the SpaceZap working. I did on what Golden Child told me to do on the robotron. smile

Try putting the nibbler.lua and Maze*.lua files in your mame directory,
cd to your mame directory, launch mame

then

dofile("nibbler.lua")


plus you have to make a couple of changes to the nibbler.lua file:

-- Define the hardware interfaces we'll use
local cpu = manager.machine.devices[":maincpu"]
--local cpu = manager:machine().devices[":maincpu"]
local mem = cpu.spaces["program"]
--local ioport = manager:machine():ioport()
local ioport = manager.machine.ioport

I applied your changes, but I'm getting the following error when trying to execute do.start()

Can you show the complete console text (commands + result) when you try to run it as well as the edited code?

I'm not quite sure what do.start() would do

The commands for robotron were:

r = require "robotron"
r.start(4)

-- give it a number from 1 to 4 for algorithm number

ok, let's try SpaceZap


download from https://github.com/FrankRizzo890/SpaceZapBot

extract the sz.lua and make a few changes:

--local cpu = manager:machine().devices[":maincpu"]
local cpu = manager.machine.devices[":maincpu"]
local mem = cpu.spaces["program"]
--local ioport = manager:machine():ioport()
local ioport = manager.machine.ioport
local in0 = ioport.ports[":P1HANDLE"]
local in1 = ioport.ports[":P3HANDLE"]


then just put the file in your mame directory and dofile("sz.lua") from the lua console.

[MAME]> dofile("sz.lua")
[MAME]>
[LUA ERROR] in execute_function: sz.lua:194: number (global 'test') has no integer representation
[LUA ERROR] in execute_function: sz.lua:163: number (global 'test') has no integer representation


It shows a bunch of errors, but it seems to work despite them.

It seems to have something to do with reading u64 and then getting a really big number and not being able to convert to an integer possibly?


test = mem:read_u64(0x5ECE + (i * 8))
if test ~= 0 then
if (test & 0xFF) ~= 0 then


just as a test of numerical precision:
[MAME]> a=1e15+1 print(a&0x3)
1
[MAME]> a=1e20+1 print(a&0x3)
error: [string "..."]:2: number (global 'a') has no integer representation
[MAME]> print(a)
1e+20

<deNiro>Are you talkin' to me?</deNiro>

I'm asking because like I posted above, everything works now, even SpaceZap that was giving me problems. My error was putting the script into the plugins folder instead of the MAME folder itself.
