ASAI - Version 1.0 Release
« on: February 09, 2015, 07:35:54 PM »

After nearly a year and a half in limbo, ASAI 1.0 is finally complete! Download link is below.

NOTE: The robots in this AI pack are intended to be fought with robots made in the VANILLA (Read: WITHOUT USING CHEAT/CUSTOM COMPONENTS) version of RA2. I stress this VERY HEAVILY because I don't want people downloading custom cheat components off the internet and then bragging that they can kill every robot in 1 hit.

Info (copied from the readme):
ASAI is a difficult mod for the vanilla (meaning you don't have any component mods installed) version of Robot Arena 2.
These robots utilize flaws in the game to their advantage to enhance their performance. Think of roiding but legal, or perhaps think of Son of Whyachi with 4 spinners instead of one, and the spinners could spin through each other without ripping itself apart.
If you do not own Robot Arena 2, it's available for download here: https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=4
Some of the robots in this pack are marked as "AW-" and "BW-", meaning "Antweight" and "Beetleweight" respectively. AW is 125kg maximum and BW is 175kg maximum.
The mod is balanced around single fights in exhibition mode and not toward tournament mode. If you can win an in-game tournament with ASAI installed I'll be impressed.
[Contents of this AI pack include] 96 AI robots to take on either one-on-one, two-on-two, or in a 4 way free-for-all, objectives include destruction of your opponent, a king of the hill competition and a tabletop sumo contest.
New, competitively balanced arenas.*
New, competitively unbalanced arenas.*
Patch to include Double Strength Aluminum in the armor tab.
New UI background.
*not really new, they're mostly taken out of DSL to fill the "obstacle course" section

How to install:
Delete or rename your current "AI" folder in your RA2 directory (same folder that has the "Robot Arena 2.exe" executable), delete RA2.cfz as well.
Then copy+paste all of the folders and files from ASAI.rar into your directory. Select "copy and replace" when prompted.
Delete your corrupted copy of the game and attempt to repeat the installation process on a new copy.
If problems persist, gametechmods has a technical support section on the forum, or you can post in this thread and I (or someone else) will be likely be willing to help.

Aw man, thanks so much for this. I've been waiting a long time for this. I'm downloading it now, so once that's done, I'll check for anything needing fixed.

Also, in a future release, did you want the Deadly Sin team all set and ready to go in the AI pack?

You mean this? https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?topic=4978.msg658047#msg658047

Yeah send it my way and it'll go in the pack, you will be credited for making a team. I accept any team that I get (unless you purposely don't try and the theme of the entire team is just KEK LEL MEM garbage). You don't need to worry about that as long as you put forth your best effort.

I would love to try this out, but Norton won't let me download the installer file from solidfiles. If it isn't too much trouble, could you please put the RAR directly on GTM?

Have you tried the "Direct Download Link" option?

Also small review so far: I am really liking what is offered in this pack. It gives some sort of creativity and variety in the teams by giving the player at least one bot type in each team. The pack, like AS said, is extremely difficult. It's harder than any Stock AI pack I've downloaded in a long time. It's like the 123AI of Stock if that makes sense.

Nope, go crazy. You can make an all AW team or all GHW team if you really want.
