Modifications / Greenscreen DSL Test Arena
« on: November 02, 2018, 02:17:08 PM »
So once I got back into Robot Arena 2 this year I decided after building a bot which was proving to be a bit of an issue with the botlab, and backdrops method of getting angled shots for splash usage I decided to attempt to reskin the DSL practice arena into a sort of greenscreen arena.

A lot of the work here is done, as I modified the .bmp, and .tgf files, however the floor is still gray, and some of the blank textures are not rendering as intended. I do suspect it is the .gmf file, thing is I do not understand that type of file at all. So if anyone else wants to take this project off my hands, feel free to do so.

Here is a screenshot of what I managed to complete before the games file format stumped me:

The file for anyone who wants to pick this project up, and continue it is in the spoiler below.

If anyone manages to get it working the textures are all white, but can easily be changed to a corresponding green color with a photo editor.

Honestly I do not know if anyone else here appreciates racing games, especially one that costs full price, but the game is quite gorgeous, and it (the Forza series) has a full creative suite that while quite awkward to work with can create some stunning art.

But I have been having an insanely fun time with this game, get a good group of friends, go online, and you are pretty much liable to have crazy fun. Anyway here is a little something I whipped up a while back with some Robotics relations. If anyone else plays it would be interesting to see yall's creations too.

Discussion / O1's random thoughts 1: Who invented the IRL style?
« on: August 26, 2018, 05:04:27 PM »
As commonplace as this style is, it is kind of in the dark as to who exactly came up with it. I do realize that I may have played a role with my realistic designs before the style became commonplace but there is no way I was close to the first. Who do you think made the first IRL bot, how far back does this style of building go in DSL?

Personal Tournaments / Alternate BBEANS 1-6
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:14:06 AM »
So I had always wondered what would have happened had the BBEANS  tournament brackets been drawn differently, would there be different champions?, if so how far would the actual champs and runners-up get in the competition?, would the BTRSHDBBDDTBL prove that it deserved the award by getting far in the competition, or would it run into some bad luck again?, will SFTW be the SFTW of BBEANS 3?

I decided the only way to find this out is to go to a bracket randomizer, and create a fresh new bracket. This show tourney is less of a tourney, and more of a what if, and features semi-high production value, and running, unscripted commentary. If this idea proves popular enough I may actually expand to other historic tourneys in RA2 history that would be possible to do (Read: has an AI Pack).

A fair warning on the commentary, I do have a bit of a speech impediment, so you may have more than a few moments where you can't understand my commentary.

Okay the bot lab in Robot Arena 3 is a real  :realmad( to work with, but for this bot I was inspired by Middleweight competitor T-Wrex

May I present Guilt-A-Whirl.

As you can see it has a major problem with the weapon impacting the floor, and it's not a good fighter at all... But heck it's a new game can't expect miracles from a first bot... Anyway it's 7:54 PM and I need to call my friend so peace out.

Existing Games / Never Alone (Kisma Ingitchuma)
« on: May 15, 2016, 10:05:29 PM »
Review incoming

So I just got done playing Never alone today, and I have to say that it is a fantastic but at times frustrating platformer, my only gripe about the gameplay is when an event mid game drastically changes the gameplay by killing off one of the two main characters.

As far as graphics go this title has it down with gorgeous winter, and spring  (for Foxtales) backdrops. It also possesses gorgeous Native American artwork for the cutscenes, which weave together a traditional tale.

The sound on this game is rather minimalist except for the chase scenes where it picks up. However with the way the game was designed around it's environments a hard hitting soundtrack would not work.

Now more in depth on the game-play, this is a game designed for local co-op. However it can be played single player by switching between the fox/boy and the girl. This is best played with a controller as the game seems to rely heavily on rumble feedback to let you know when the blizzard winds blow.

The bosses are really well designed, and act as sort of a puzzle, anytime you die in this title it is your own fault, as the games difficulty is moderate but unfair deaths are non existent. You die in one hit so you have to be careful but you get rewarded by watching an amazing tale unfold.

I have to give this one a B

Systems: Xbox One, Wii U, PS4, PC, Linux.

Has anyone else played this title?

Installation Support / Need help installing the AU Battlebots pack
« on: July 18, 2015, 02:56:59 PM »
I do not know if this is in the right part of the forum so forgive me if it is in the wrong place.
I am having an issue with the AU Battlebots pack, I really want to play with it however I install it and the game reaches the first splash, freezes then crashes. I installed it to a stock RA2 V 1.4, is there a patch to make the AI Pack work? I am using the V 1.1 version of the pack.


This is called Gravitron... Perhaps I should go back to DSL, the wedges are bad, the bot lifts and sometimes flips itself when it goes into reverse... Oh and sometimes the flipper fails to self right it.
Any way to improve this from being the worst Ironforge bot ever created?

Site News and Feedback / Mobile Phone issues
« on: September 05, 2012, 06:25:19 PM »
This is ridiculous. As I type this on my 2009 Smart phone there is a text that says "Warning topic is currently/will be locked! Only admins and moderators can reply" This also showed up when I was posting in the sign ups for Total Annihilation 2 (to notify Thyrus of a possible issue with my entry) and many other threads including my DSL Showcase. Yet I still managed to post in those locations. Now I don't know if it's just my phone, if not, than if a thread isn't locked, that message shouldn't be there. Someone needs to fix this before there is confusion from people posting from their phones.

Now I know GTM owns AU so why not restore AU into an archived form where no one can post but you can look at it and study the AU forums?
