NEAT C++ for Microsoft Windows
Released 2002
The Windows NEAT package contains C++ source code for the NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies method (see the original NEAT package above). It includes an animated demo task and a precompiled executable that runs under Windows. The included task is a minesweeper problem in which sweepers have to cover as much area as possible in a finite amount of time (see screenshot ).

For answers to common questions, refer to our FAQ .

Windows NEAT was written by Mat Buckland, based on the NEAT method by Kenneth Stanley. Please direct bug reports to fup@btinternet.com. Please contact kstanley@cs.utexas.edu for other comments, including ideas or plans for expanding the open source software.
