How fast can I run my simulations with TORCS?

Daniele | FAQ,WCCI2008 | Monday, February 25th, 2008

If you start a race with the normal display mode, you will be able to accelerate the simulation time up to a 4X speed with respect to real time, i.e., you will be able to simulate 1 hour of racing in 15 minutes. Instead, using the results only display mode, the simulation speed will be limited only by the speed of your machine, the client/server communication overhead and the time required by your driver bot to compute its action. In our tests we reached almost a 30x speed-up, i.e., you can simulate 1 hour of racing in approximately 2 minutes.

Here is some very simple Java code that demonstrates how to connect to the TORCS server-bot and parse its messages. My apologies for not offering a complete Java client and example training algorithms at this point, but it’s soon to follow, trust me. This is at least something to get you started.
