Custom Components Showcase / Sage's Retooled Showcase
« on: September 10, 2016, 02:50:50 PM »

thought I'd try a giant VS in retooled. it's way more difficult than I thought. this one is OK and was about as far as i'd got before I decided it wasn't worth it. I'll have to come up with something else for the tourney...

Discussion / Bot with best wedge in all of stock?

Can't remember which bot is considered to have the best wedge ever. I want to download it and play against it for testing.

Off-Topic Discussion / Accidentally deleted all of my bots

My backup failed when I upgraded to windows 10.

RIP 8 years of building.

Found this old video.

Voice activation.

Turning all the components invisible, adding the random axle and wheel.

And the best part was the absolutely coincidental sound my hard drive made right after I pretended to voice-activate.

A lot of people are reporting a quick fix to this.

Go to your main RA2 folder. Find the file named "ra2.cfg" (make sure it's not ra2.cfz).
Right-click > edit with notepad.
Find the line "fullscreen = 1" (should be the second one down).
Change it to "fullscreen = 0"

Let me know if that works for you.

Why are there 30 posts per page? I much liked it better when there was 10/15 (can't remember which)

Session timed out error. Inf getting it too

I deleted my cookies and then relogged, but set my session from "Forever" to "1 hour."

Perhaps there's something wrong with the forever setting.

Modifications / RAW 2 Arena released!
« on: August 13, 2012, 06:54:13 PM »

One of the coolest arenas IMO.

I can't even remember all the random hazards!
There's falling boxes, barrels, refrigerators...
Flaming balls of death...
Disappearing walls...

anyway, go watch some of the old RAW2 footage. Someone requested I release this, so...

If something seems like its missing (sound files, etc.) just post. Otherwise, enjoy!

Off-Topic Discussion / SECRET REVEALED.
« on: February 16, 2012, 11:58:12 PM »
I can't hold it in anymore!

Scrap's DSL was broken so he asked me to build his bbeans4 bot. I'm the actual creator of Iron Spaghetti, which led to scrap making Steel Meatball and starting the flail craze.


Off-Topic Discussion / Windows 8 Dual-boot
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:32:02 PM »

check this sh** out! Just dual-booted my Windows 7 with the Windows 8 Preview. Pretty sick stuff :P I'm actually posting this right now from the new OS.

Anyone else tried this? What do you think of the new OS?

Discussion / Is Melty Brain Realistic Or Not ?
« on: August 11, 2011, 02:11:33 PM »
(This whole discussion originally started at page 48 of Urjak's showcase, but it has now a new thread for discussing and keeping offtopic out of the showcase)

In real life, the wheel could be made to a perfect size and there could be a hole cut in the firestorm flipper. What's unrealistic is melty brain AI <- shouldn't be allowed. Flails are not realistic because they don't work in real life but who cares they work in ra2 so they are a legitimate weapon system. This rule is enforced by tournaments, and the tournament host has the right to declare a bot "unrealistic" or not, according to his own opinion. But people can build whatever the heck they want in their showcases. Just as there's people who build "realistic" stock bots, people can build "unrealistic" DSL bots.

I agree the general DSL realism rule is broken, but to be honest that rule should never be "enforced" in the first place.

This showcase is for all bots built with Hax Mode, to test and explain limits, restrictions, and new findings. Please don't post any superstacked bots in your personal showcase, we would like to keep them all in one place for now.

Here's the guide for how to use this glitch:,7468.0.html


DSA, 2 Blacks, HPZ drive, 36 Irons, 3 Maces.

6HPZ motors, 2 Blacks, and a control board all stacked in one spot. Took like 30 minutes to wire it >.>

Any way I can use all my RAM?

Chatterbox / Vacation
« on: December 25, 2010, 03:08:48 PM »
So I'm going on vacation over winter break to a cabin in Colorado, so we can ski in the mountains. Whether or not I'll have internet, I have no idea. So,

Challenge Thread- I'll approve challenges when I get back, just everyone work to finish up the ones that are going so when I get back I can re-tally everything.

BTTB 3- Sorry, I might miss the deadline by a few days. Will have it done when I get back (dec 31 / jan 1).

BOTM- Have my bot done, but would anyone be willing to create a cool splash for it? I was gonna do it tomorrow, but then I realized I would be without internet...

That about covers it! If on the off chance I do have wireless internets in the cabin, I'll still probably be too busy skiing and spending time with my family to do this stuff anyway.
