Configuring the engine

The design of the PACS engine is such that it is possible for the user to control some part of the operations of the engine. For example, whether or not to use the graphical interface.

Game mode

The engine has a series of game modes which can easily be set. This can be done at the end of the PACS.mod file which is contained in the PACS files. The name of the different options has been chosen so as to be as clear as possible. In addition some comment has been supplied to avoid misinterpretation.

Game configuration

It is also inside the PACS.mod file that the arena can be defined in what we call the game configuration. This is done using a simple but clear text representation of the arena. By default we provide three arenas in the PACS.mod file. The configuration of the arena using text is depicted here. As you can see you need to specify the dimension of the arena explicitly. Do not forget this!!! Moreover, you can specify a initial setup of the objects in the arena (set plElFromInput TRUE).
