Multi-Character Fighting Simulation

By Sukoco Retantyo Wardoyo Agus Harjoko Mochamad Hariadi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2018

In the development of and research into multi-character fighting computer games, Non-Player Characters (NPCs) frequently seem less intelligent owing to them having a single focus. As such, multi-character fighting becomes one-on-one fighting; one character will encounter another character only once the previous opponent is defeated. This study develops a new model in multi-character fighting, in which each NPC can simultaneously fight against many characters. Following this model, each character becomes an agent that makes his own decisions. The first advantage of this model is the integration of multi-character behaviors in fights. Each character can seek out enemies/opponents, select one target opponent, avoid obstacles, approach the target opponent, change the target opponent, and then defeat the opponent or be defeated by the opponent; in other words, each character can thus fight against many opponents. All of the behaviors in the fight take place automatically. The second advantage of this model is that each character does not only focus on the opponent being targeted, but also on the other opponents surrounding him. Each character can move from one opponent to another, even when the target opponent is not yet defeated. The third advantage of this model is that each character can move to another fight cluster, thus ensuring that fights seem more dynamic. This research has experimented with the model using a 3D application that can run on personal computers or smart phones.

A Method of Weight Update in Group Decision-Making to Accommodate the Interests of All the Decision Makers

By Hamdani Hamdani Retantyo Wardoyo Khabib Mustofa

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2017

The weight updates are required for group decision-making which has similar parameters used by the decision maker (DM). Each DM as the stakeholder may have similar or different parameters in selecting parameters. Therefore, we have to accommodate the interests of all decision makers (DMs) to obtain alternative decisions. DM who has selected the parameters inputs the initial weight (W_Pi) based on the classical methods, and then recalculates to obtain the updated weights (W_j) until the final weight (W_j^i) is obtained for the alternative of group decision-making (GDM). The initial weight uses a weighting directly or multi criteria decision-making (MCDM). This method aims to provide the fairness for all DMs who have different knowledge in determining the value of the weights and the selection parameters. In order to obtain alternative decisions, we used technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) method to update weight. In this paper, the alternative output of the decisions is applied in two stages: the decisions of each DM and the group, where this output consists of four types of alternatives. Based on the proposed method, the result of GDM shows that the third alternative is recommended in decision-making. This method is effectively performed in decision-making which has different parameters and weights of each DM to support group decision.

Batik Classification with Artificial Neural Network Based on Texture-Shape Feature of Main Ornament

By Anita Ahmad Kasim Retantyo Wardoyo Agus Harjoko

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2017

Batik is a textile with motifs of Indonesian culture which has been recognized by UNESCO as world cultural heritage. Batik has many motifs which are classified in various classes of batik. This study aims to combine the features of texture and the feature of shapes’ ornament in batik to classify images using artificial neural networks. The value of texture features of images in batik is extracted using a gray level co-occurrence matrices (GLCM) which include Angular Second Moment (ASM) / energy), contrast, correlation, and inverse different moment (IDM). The value of shape features is extracted using a binary morphological operation which includes compactness, eccentricity, rectangularity and solidity. At this phase of the training and testing, we compare the value of a classification accuracy of neural networks in each class in batik with their texture features, their shape, and the combination of texture and shape features. From the three features used in the classification of batik image with artificial neural networks, it was obtained that shape feature has the lowest accuracy rate of 80.95% and the combination of texture and shape features produces a greater value of accuracy by 90.48%. The results obtained in this study indicate that there is an increase in accuracy of batik image classification using the artificial neural network with the combination of texture and shape features in batik image.

The Feature Extraction to Determine the Wave’s Peaks in the Electrocardiogram Graphic Image

By Darwan Sri Hartati Retantyo Wardoyo Budi Yuli Setianto

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2017

The electrocardiogram (ECG) will create the characteristic in the form of the wave’s peak pattern. The first peak and the next one in one ECG wave have their own value and names, namely PQRST peaks. The process of feature extraction is very significant to determine the certain pattern. The use of feature extraction will be useful to help to detect certain case, including the determination of PQRST peaks according to the ECG print-out. This study makes a method to determine the ECG peaks (PQRST), the heart rate, and ST-deviation according to the ECG graphic image. The input data is in the form of ECG graphic image which is derived from the ECG 12 lead record. This study employs segmentation method (grayscale and binary), morphology (dilation and erosion), and produce the graphic image which is read as the ECG signal in the pre-processing stage, and use the Pan-Tompkins algorithm for the feature extraction method. The result of the peak determination is validated by cardiologists. The validation shows that the result of up and down deflection computation from the isoelectric of each P, Q, R, S, and T wave has represented the ECG calculation clinically; including the calculation to determine the R-R interval, heart rate, and ST-deviation.
