|Sam Hill: Software Archive Downloads|
[Back to Home]
I have been writing commercial computer software for PC's since 1994. Available below are a selection of programs from my various years of programming right upto the present day.
You'll probably notice the common these to most of these programs - Computer AI - as most programs use various elements of Computer AI to make up the program, from Computer Opponents for games, to AI mapping of the human brain to demonstrate learning and puzzle solving.
Most of these programs have been published before (on various software licences), but are now (several years later) available for use as a free download. Due to this - all programs are supplied as is - no warranty, fitness for purpose or otherwise is supplied or implied regarding these programs your use of these is entirely at your own risk. By downloading the program you agree to this condition and that Sam Hill and anyone or anybody assoicated with the software cannot be and will not be held liable for any loss or damage that may occur from the use of the software. Please also note that no support is supplied for any of these programs.

Some Recent Software - from 1999 to 2001.
Whois - client for Windows (32kb)
In association with Ision Internet plc.
This is a Whois client - which allows you to interact with Whois servers on the Internet to find out who owns various domain names.
Kohonen Network Simulation - simulates a human brain (20.9 kb - used online)
This is a Java Applet written to demonstrate the techniques of a Kohonen network - which is a simulation method for the human brain - to demonstrate how neurons learn and remember information. Quite a fascinating program.
Atomix - Atom based puzzle game (153kb - played online)
AtomiX is a simple Java Applet game for 0 to 4 players... (The computer assumes the role of any missing players) and the basic aim in AtomiX is to conquer the board and obliterate all your opponents atoms. Each player starts of with just two atoms on the board and then takes turns to try to take over the board...
Bacchus - a card game (311kb)
A one player card game to play against a computer opponent...
This is by no means my complete software portfolio, just a selection of the various programs I have written over the years (and that can be redistributed here) which I hope people will find useful or enjoyable (maybe even both).
