Hi, I was hoping I could some of you to help me out with my honours project research.
Basically, for my honours project I’ve been researching into effective techniques to use in AI for video games, directly related to emulating realistic sports strategies. The end result of this is the simulation I’ve produced, which is meant to model an ice hockey powerplay (with limited constraints on the external rules of ice hockey otherwise). What I’m looking for is people to download and watch the simulation I’ve produced for a short amount of time (no more than a couple of minutes), then fill in a short survey on the behaviours, which will give me feedback to discuss in my dissertation on how I could improve the simulation.
If you’re interested in helping me out (and I’d really appreciate it), you can download the simulation zip file from the link below, and follow the instructions in the readme pdf on how to run the program, along with the additional slightly more technical details of what you’re seeing. The whole process shouldn’t take more than about 10-15 minutes.
EDIT: I've stopped collecting responses, thanks to anyone who responded

Your first post and you are asking us to download a zip file and install a program from with it.
Call me a bit cautious but I'd keep well clear of this everyone.
Admin...you want to do something with this post (the original not mine)?
Hi, you don't actually need to install anything. The program runs as an executable, and is in a ZIP file because it both cuts down on the download size, and means that the entire thing can be downloaded from one source. The program makes use of a couple of SFML dll's (dynamic link libraries), which allow for the graphical outputs.
Here's what the program looks like being ran (though I'm not sure how much of a guarantee that would be) i.imgur.com/GRgZll5.png
I can guarantee the program is safe, though I understand why it might not appear. I included that I wanted to post this when I applied to join the forum, so I assumed that when the account was approved this would be OK. I can't really think of any other proofs which would prove the download is safe, but if the admins can think of any evidence, I'll provide it.
EDIT: I'll also add that the program is hosted on google drives, and google drive scans everything which is uploaded, and prevents anything detected from being downloaded. support.google.com/a/answer/172541?hl=en
