General Support / Component troubles
« on: August 15, 2019, 06:25:32 AM »
Starting a thread for anyone having trouble with components.
I know I've started a few help threads so why not have one big one for everyone to comment on.

I'm having trouble trying to separate the car steering unit (attached below)
I can't compile/decompile it, even copying the original textures and separating (renaming them then changing the gmf file) still crashes the game

Any help??

General Support / Epic Showdown won't work
« on: August 13, 2019, 03:52:37 PM »
I downloaded the zip file for the Epic Showdown arena from the Beetle Bros website (links here:)

but I can't open the zip, my laptop is saying it's corrupted. So I read up more and found that it's hidden in the BBEANS AI, and I managed to find it. I've separated the files and copied it to the arenas file, however it's hidden in the game.

How do I unhide it?
Or, does anyone have a working copy? If you do please send it to me

I've attached the files I separated below

I'm trying to import a robot however it keeps crashing the game.

General Support / Another problem with component editing
« on: August 03, 2019, 11:05:51 AM »
Hi it's me again

Still stuck on problems like these:
So I'm still trying to separate components. This one is a drum and I can't get it to work.
It will decompile successfully, but when I rename the bmp and try compiling it I get this message:

Any help please?

Modifications / IDEA: Everything mod?
« on: September 22, 2018, 12:24:27 PM »
Just had a small probably stupid idea
Should I combine almost every single modpack released on gtm?
This includes stock, DSL2.1, DSL2.2, Ironforge, Starcore, Gigafrost, Official Robot Wars, other robot wars and roaming robots mods, Live Designs, and any others I can find.

It'll take a long time to be made, but if it is who would be interested?

General Support / Time Texture change
« on: September 11, 2018, 07:32:21 AM »
Hi again,
I want to change the normal timer to this:

How do I do it? And can I change the font of the timer as well?

Modifications / Cursor Textures
« on: September 10, 2018, 05:33:19 PM »
Slight UI mods,
Made a little change and took the cursor from RWED and made it into the cursor for RA2:

Remove any background white to make it transparent, save as a tga, rename & replace with your cursor and it's ready to go

Have any custom cursors you would like to share? Post them here (please!!)

Or, you can download them from here and rename & replace them straight away if you want to:

General Support / "Error Loading To Point"
« on: May 11, 2018, 04:47:14 PM »
I keep trying to swap out the large drum ("lt_hdrum3" in the styles folder) and replace the skins on them.
I can do it with almost all other skins however not with these ones for some reason:

Now, the "trid" one works however not with a different skin for the "drumshine" one. Whenever, and whatever I've tried (including copying a normal version of the bmp and copying the skin over it), when I load it the game crashes and says "Error loading to point".

I have it working now, but that is only because I haven't changed the drumshine file which I copied from a working version. The problem is that it will overwrite all other files while in game.

Has anyone came across this + know a solution?

Me again
When I change the "'nose':math.pi" number, the robot doesn't turn around. I've swapped it with other lines that work but nothing turns it around. Not even changing the orientation of the bot file.
What do I do?

General Support / Arena spawn points problem
« on: March 26, 2018, 11:02:21 AM »
I turned the DSL2 arena into an arena that can be fought in.It loads ok and the robot in the first slot spawns in without a problem, however the second robot... well, not so much:

I've looked around the arena guides and didn't read anything on editing spawn points, so how do I fix it?I'd prefer the opponent to spawn across from the robot in the first position like the original Practice Arena

General Support / RW Live arena crashes the game (fixed)
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:52:08 PM »

Hi, me again with another issueWhenever I try loading the RW Live arena on any mod that isn't the ORW Mod

General Support / Compiler keeps not compiling
« on: February 04, 2018, 06:27:46 AM »

So, I've recently been coming across this:
I've came across this problem a bunch of times and IDK why it keeps happening. It's crashed for components such as a chewblade, lt drums, toro eyes, other things too.
I switched to a different compiler but it kept doing the same thing.
Is there any way to stop it?

General Support / lutze components????
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:41:03 PM »
So, I'm trying to find the old Lu-Tze components pack and there are no links to them
I need these as I'm fixing more of Sonny Resetti's robots and a few include some components that are not on my computer at all
The links on the internet do not work anymore, so is there any other way to access these files or does anyone own them that would PM me them please? I swear they are for good use :)

Off-Topic Discussion / Apologies
« on: January 15, 2018, 05:33:51 PM »
Hi everyone, I posted on the Games of 2017 thread to get a few things off my chest:

but the rest that I didn't say keeps bothering me so I feel as though I need to say this. Now a lot of you won't care, I wouldn't either because I know to a lot of people this is just a message board but it means more than that to me and the way things are looking right now I think I'll be here for a while. Over the past I've done things here that I regret massively so please read this and hopefully I can make some things right. Okay...

Starting out:
So when I got here I was a cringe worthy n00b and didn't know how to build or improve (building skills and behaviour). I used to build sh** and think it was good then take any criticism as an insult. I get now I should've taken it as criticism but I was very immature at the time.

Telling Sage to "shut up"
Yeah, this wasn't supposed to be as serious as it was taken. I didn't mean it to be an insult but then again it was still retarded of me anyway. I can't apologise enough to Sage for this and I was so stupid at the time. From here I just went on a downward spiral on GTM and constantly pestered people for robots, mainly Rob Collins and Mazakari and again I'm so sorry for causing any trouble if you read this, for entries into JD Wars but also because I wanted to mess around with them too.
About JD Wars, if I get the chance which I am working on, it'll be my robots only lol. As well, I seemed to request robots to be put into the RWRA2 Official Mod which was also a waste of time but it only seemed like I was, I really just wanted to see cool robots remade and was giving ideas. People took this the wrong way, and it's easy to see why, but whatever I want to think it's over and done with... Also, massive thank you to Scrap Daddy for being one of the only ones to help me out when you really didn't need to.

In January, life took a dark turn for me when I believe I started getting better at modding RA2 and getting a bit better with my building. It didn't put me off RA2 fully, however I lost some enthusiasm and got bored. I think I was depressed at the time and did whatever I could to be happy but after a while I was happier, but after a few months I lost interest in RA2 and looked towards another interest of mine, Pro Wrestling. Now, I had always loved it but got more involved and got into the behind the scenes side. I still peruse this hobby and I'm currently in training. This doesn't matter except it's my life outside of GTM and from time to time I'll be more interested in that. Another thing that put me off RA2 is how I tried making a Sonny Resetti AI after volunteering. Now I know a DSL version was released and that's cool, but now and again I fix a few bots for the mod I'm working on which involves a lot more of his older robots and some new ones too which after a lot if work will be released with Sonny's permission. As time went by working on it, my laptop started to fail a bit and didn't work too well but hopefully all will be fine now so I'll try getting back to work.
At the same time though, I would drop in to GTM and tried doing stuff which worked until...

Well... sh**. All the credibility I tried building up from my first year instantly was destroyed. I can't remember exactly what happened, but here's my opinion.
I do remember sending my friend a screenshot of something on GTM (note, we live two sides of town but we go to the same school, it's a small town), then he creates a troll account and starts bashing random threads which he found funny and I didn't tbh. I also remember telling him to stop which he ignored. A day or so later, we sit next to each other (we're sat like this in a few lessons where we're on computers) and I think I checked something on GTM that was going on at the time and he sees it, then remembers the meister stupid sh** and starts doing it again. As we're at the same location it looks like I'm doing a Reier, which I promise I wasn't! After that I didn't see the point in coming back to GTM fully and instead turned to wrestling and Idubbbz, and also finishing GCSE's. I barely used GTM until late 2017 where I have recently gained interest again.

So, all in all, I'm sorry for being such a n00b and I realise how much a turd I was. And I know, I'm not a big deal on here but hopefully I begin contributing to the community :)

Public Tournament Discussion / Minibots Challenge Discussion
« on: January 05, 2018, 02:59:25 PM »
[No logo yet lol]

So I've been thinking about an IRL beetleweight challenge tournament based off RW Extreme 2.
Now, I know an IRL rule seems a horrible idea for a beetleweight type root but I don't believe it's been done before.
[If not IRL then realistic design maybe??]
What mod do you guys think should it be done in? I was thinking DSL 2.2 maybe best but is there another that would be preferred?

I want to make an arena that is similar to the video above, I'll need some help doing this but I'm willing to make sure it happens.

It's only an idea for now so building rules will come later, but what does everyone think about it?
