The primary purpose of this project is to serve as a basic framework for building AI controllers for Microsoft Ms. Pacman.

A simple AI built on this framework participated in a competition at WCCI 2008:

The results weren't impressive, and somewhat below the normally observed performance.

However, this framework should make it considerably easier to get started building serious AI for Ms. Pacman.

An overview of the framework can be found in the MsPacmanAI PDF and Documentation is included with source files.

If you do not have access to Microsoft Ms. Pacman you should be able to quite easily make it work with another emulator based version of Ms. Pacman.

Feel free to contact me at if you have any questions.
