Proposal: Conditional Gain

Fewer than a quorum not voting AGAINST, fails 1-2. Failed by Kevan.

Add the following to the runAccessCode function:

if(accessCode == ‘*’ && validActor()){
printLine("INC "+actingProgram );
printLine("INC " + randomPlayer());
printLine("SET "+ actingProgram +" INPUT TO "+randomPlayer().slice(0,2));

Add the following function to the Master Control Program:

function validActor(){
return checkIsNot(actingProgram,"__PROGRAM","Illegal execution! The name of the acting program is required.")
&& checkIsNot(getProgramInfo(actingProgram),undefined,"Illegal execution! the name of the acting program does not match an legal program")


You can’t win the energy war this way, but you can sure get close! you also give a random program access to you.

You can win this way, with a 1-in-7 chance: if randomPlayer() selects the player executing the program, they’re 2 Energy ahead of everyone else.

Oh, yes you can. Unfortunately, the two hour window is up, so I will be unable to modify this. I should have defaulted everyone’s energy to 1.

against I think the default-to-1 proposal is a good idea anyway.
