    A cool and informative blog post about how the artificial intelligence behind Street Fighter II.


    It was back in 1991 when Campcom brought Street Fighter II: The World Warrior into the arcades. And even now, over 25 years later, game developers are fascinated by the game’s artificial intelligence.

    One of them has picked the game’s source code apart and presented his results in a short, but informative blog post. The blog is not about machine learning but rather about answering questinons how the titles’s code worked. It covers the basics, like the opponents behaviour, as well as the “cheats” of the AI. So, if you are interested in video game history, this blog post might be an interesting read for you.
