It's all of them.
You either didn't install the the game correctly or you're trying to install another mod over DSL that breaks the game

Discussion / never before seen pre-release version of emergency
« on: July 28, 2021, 02:02:24 AM »
Thanks to someone called spahgetticoconut in RA2 Central for posting this

recently a dude in discord joined and posted about having an odd version of emergency that doesn't match with the version that we all know and love.
His proclaimed version of EMERGENCY looked like this

most of us were skeptical at first. in almost 18 years of this game being out, i can't recall a single post on any forum or website talking about there being a different version of emergency, and as someone who owns an original v1 RA2 CD, I can say that i have never seen it either in my copy of the game. our main two guesses at the time were either:
- A: he had some weird bootleg copy of the game where emergency was changed
- B: he was making it up.

But lo and behold, he later posted both the botfile of this version of emergency, and also the entire directory of his ra2 game install, and his claims about having a weird pre-release version of emergency were very much true

internals + a better shot

if you dig a little deeper, it all actually starts to add up and starts to make sense on how this version fits in

- There's actually two binding lines for emergency in the bindings file for the stock ai.  The unused line that is # out is exactly the same as the line that is in the gamefiles that he posted. It also has the binding setting correctly set for the nose heading, the required setting for car steering drive that this version uses, and also the weapon line is properly set for the flipper extender
- EMERGENCY in the final release is the only HW bot that doesn't have double strength armor, this version has double strength armor (ti) like the rest of the stock ai robots
- going by the last edited dates for the original AI in V1 of the game, the final release version of EMERGENCY was last edited almost 2 weeks later than all of the other robots. this version lines up date wise with the rest of team spark (keep in mind that emergency's skin was updated in 1.2, so the date is different in later versions)

pretty cool that were still learning new things about the base vanilla versions of this game after all these years huh

also if anyone was wondering, i haven't found anything else that's too different form the later releases of ra2 yet. i do however believe that the V1/pre-V1 exe has slightly different physics compared to later releases like v.1.2 and 1.3. (1.4 was a fan patch that didn't edit the exe in any capacity), but that's for another day

For those who still care about the ai replicas, patch 7.3 is out, and it fixes the reps

Behold : angry naryar post. Don't want to read it ? Just skip it.

So just about 15 minutes ago, I was getting back from getting groceries. I see a car with two girls inside, one of them points me to the portal I went through to enter mylodging. I first don't get it, then realize she wants me to open the door so the car can go through.

I then move to open the door, automatically. I didn't even choose to act.

Then the car moves past me and before I can open the portal, the same girl exits the car and open the doors, and then thanks me for being kind and that she'll open it and it was fine and stuff. Result : Nothing accomplished.

I therefore go back, having wasted ten seconds of my life being used for absolutely nothing because the girl couldn't plan ten seconds in advance and didn't knew clearly what she wanted. Yet again... neither did I, because I acted on automatic behavior, so I am probably to blame as much as her for this waste.

Can't I bloody choose what I desire to be ? Can't I be lawful neutral and master of my choices ? Can't I reforge what I am and my education as I desire, for only MY purpose and desires ? Can people think before doing moral acts ?

But no, because of my education "hurr help girls becuz it's da rite thing to do durr lawful good", visibly I can't.

Odin damn it, as if this day hasn't started poorly enough.

Maybe I should seek a worthy battle to raise my morale in conflict.

actually the best thing on this site

Tutorials and Tips / Simulation Geometry for gmfs
« on: March 12, 2021, 06:05:55 AM »
nobody really wrote this down in an easy to find place, and the wiki has incorrect information (like always)

*SIMULATION_GEOMETRY   2 = Objects with no concavities and no separate collision mesh
*SIMULATION_GEOMETRY   3 = Objects with no concavities, but with a separate collision mesh
If you're using one of these two options, any concavities in your mesh will be automatically filled in with an invisible collision mesh (it doesn't show up with f12)

Obviously, this probably isn't what you want, so:
*SIMULATION_GEOMETRY   5 = Objects with concavities and no separate collision mesh
*SIMULATION_GEOMETRY   6 = Objects with concavities and a separate collision mesh
Concavities will not be filled in with if you're using these two simgeo settings

here's an example object with very noticeable concavities

left is with simgeo 2, right is with simgeo 5. notice how on the incorrect simulation geometry the inside part of the mesh is filled in, even though the mesh itself still fits with the visible U shape.

These settings apply to both components and arenas

do note that overly complicated collision meshes are still going be an issue regardless of simgeo used

What "Recent Events" are you talking about? Is there I place where I can find discussion about this taboo incident?
all of the vets and top builders aside from like robo are massive cheaters

Nice work with scanner, Silverfish. Definite a welcome release

before anyone says anything, i'm not a cheater, i'm an innovator who brought retooled to DSL, stock, and ironforge

y'all are filthy cheaters (unlike me, who DEFINITELY DID NOT put invisible razer damage zones on a bot that went on to win a tournament)
