This paper describes an application of Evolutionary Strategy to optimizing ten distance parameters and seven cost parameters in our Ms Pac-Man controller, ICE Pambush 3, which was the winner of the IEEE CIG 2009 competition. Targeting at the first game level, we report our results from 14 possible optimization schemes; arising from combinations of which initial values to chose, those originally used in ICE Pambush 3 or those randomly assigned, and which parameter types to optimize first, the… CONTINUE READING
