Due to some... recent events... in the discord and as a response to Geese's guide for tourney hosts, I've written a tool for hosts that checks for most illegal BFE modifications.
The link:
Some notes:

2: This isn't a substitute for actually looking at the bots that enter your tournaments. In particular, THIS TOOL DOESN'T CHECK IRL VIOLATIONS LIKE CLIPPING.
3: If you don't care about downloading the code, you can just download the executable at: (Direct)

Tournament Archives / The Battle Arcade 3: SBV
« on: January 15, 2021, 11:54:26 PM »

Hello, and once again welcome to The Battle Arcade! It’s been a while since the last one of these, and I’d say it’s about time for another. The gimmick, as always, is that the arena for a fight is selected randomly. One havok restart is allowed per bot, used on the condition that the havok obviously caused the loss. Entries will be allowed one major modification (defined as a modification large enough to cause me to change the AI line of the bot), and unlimited minor modifications until signups close. Match ruleset:
- 3 minute matches
 -hazards on
- best of 3
Beginning with the winner’s ro4 (and the second loser’s ro4)
-best of 5
-hazards off

Stock SBV:


The pool for arena selection is currently at a size of 55. This may be added to by me before signups end, and user suggestions are welcome until then as well! See “criteria for accepting an arena” below.

Let's get this show on the road!

Well, let's try this for a fourth run (hopefully this time with a lot fewer screw-ups).


Meta: Stock-Unrealistic LW
RA2CF: Banned
HAX mode: Banned
SnS, Multibots: Banned
BFE, AAM, other external modification: Banned
cheatbot2: Banned except flamethrower
Fight length: 3 min
Arena: RA Reborn Arena (skinned)
Entry slots: 6
One major modification (defined as an upgrade where I have to change the AI line of the bot) is allowed, with unlimited minor modifications, no modifications allowed after SBV goes up. I also reserve the right to reject a bot if I feel it is trying to exploit loopholes/an sftw.
I personally will not enter due to the small slot count.

And here's how the fights will work: the tourney will be run in 5 rounds, in which each entrant will fight every other entrant. At the end of the round, the competitor with the fewest wins will be eliminated. At the end, the last man standing wins. One havok restart per bot per match.

Signup Slots (Red - Error, Blue - Accepted, Green - AIed)

1: Phillipa

2: NeonCalypso

3: Dark-Al

4: 090901

5: Badger

6: Dreamcast

Tournament Archives / [DSL MW IRL] The Battle Arcade 2: Sign-ups FULL
« on: September 09, 2017, 08:46:28 PM »
Well, since the first Battle Arcade was to celebrate my first year of GTM, how about a second for year 2?
Rules are similar to the first Battle Arcade:

DSL DSL-IRL Middleweight
16 Entrants
cheatbot2 banned
NO outside modification (e.g AAM) OTHER THAN BFE, HAX Mode banned, RA2CF NO LONGER BANNED.
Clusterbots banned (I'd rather not have a repeat of the first one, thanks).
Tourney will be double elimination.
One havok restart will be allowed (if it was obvious that the havok directly caused the loss) before forfeit.
You have one major update (defined here as an update that requires me to change AI), and unlimited minor updates. No updates may be submitted after signups.
Fights will be 1v1 bo3, hazards on, until winners top 4, when it will become bo5, hazards off (including for the remainder of losers).
I reserve the right to refuse a bot if I feel it is trying to break rules/abuse loopholes.

Now for the gimmick: If you weren't there for the first Battle Arcade, the gimmick was that the arena was randomly selected from a list that could be contributed to before the tourney entered signups. This will carry over. Feel free to suggest arenas if they are reasonably balanced/skinned! (Tabletop is banned, for example, due to the arena wobbling.)

Current arena list:

If stock is selected, I will be entering Nightshade 3vo:

Signups: (Red: Error, Blue: Accepted, Green: AI'd)
1: kaiser112183
2: Badger
3: Hoppin
4: TheRoboteer
5: Guldenflame
6: Dadddjent
7: NeonCalypso
8: pokebro14
9: TGM
10: DemonOfTomorrow
11: SagarisRA2
12: Asbestosstar
13: WenXiangLee
14: TheOrcCorp
15: dragonsteincole
16: Virus Bomb

Deadline is (signups end on) DECEMBER 1ST, 2017

Off-Topic Discussion / Two Years...
« on: September 09, 2017, 02:58:33 PM »
Two years ago today, some kid joined Gametechmods. Two years later, that kid's been on hiatus for like 6 months and is getting sick of it. I'm going to try to get a revival together. Anyway, it's been two years! And I don't regret coming here. It's been wacky, and though I only have one tourney win (ironically enough, because I LOST), I do enjoy bot building. GTM was somewhere I originally went to see S_R's robot wars replicas, but, eventually, it became a place to see how to really play RA2. See you guys around soon!

Existing Games / Need for Speed: Rivals
« on: February 04, 2017, 10:24:56 PM »
It's an old game by now, but I still wonder if anyone plays this?
Origin (if you care to join me): CalKyanite
Also, what cars do you play?
For me, it would be the Enforcer Koenigsegg One:1 and the Lamborghini Veneno.

General Support / AI crashing my game
« on: February 04, 2017, 09:35:35 AM »
Ok, I've gotten sick of this. I'm working on AIing bots for the Zone, but some are crashing my game for no reason. I tried literally just changing (on ronin's base AI) the name and AI type, but it gives me the "abnormal runtime error!" message and crashes. I'm running stock 1.4. Any ideas what it is?

I'd like to give hosting another shot. Here's a concept:
16 entrants

Stock LW
HAX Mode Banned
No modifications outside of the game
Meltybrain and crawlers banned
One havok restart per match, after that, it's a forfeit.
Upgrades: You may make unlimited upgrades that DO NOT CHANGE THE AI. YOU MAY ONLY CHANGE YOUR AI ONCE. MAKE IT COUNT.
The gimmick: This will be run KotH style (BO1, winner keeps fighting, most wins, well... wins).
5 rounds will be run, with everyone fighting once per round.
Seed will be determined by how fast you can kill some kind of SFTW. The current king will go first after round 1, followed in order of the least kills to the most.
Arena: Starts as combat zone, no hazards. after 1 round, it's the king's choice, of any arena they want (as long as it works and is skinned appropriately).
I will NOT be entering unless there are less than 8 people who enter at the end of the deadline.

1: botomatic1000 (Major edit used)
2: jamied666
3: dragonsteincole
4: Rob Collins
5: botomatic1000 (2)
6: Rob Collins (2)
7: Tashic
8: Dreamcast
9: Asbestosstar
10: 090901
11: Mechadino

Red: Something's wrong
Blue: Accepted
Green: AI'd

Tournament Archives / The Battle Arcade: Awards
« on: October 11, 2016, 07:07:33 PM »

Ok, the main tourney is finished, and congrats to
time to give some awards!

Based on what actually happened:
Kill count SO FAR (yes, the bonus matches are actually going to count towards the mvp stat(otherwise it'd just be the top 4)):

The game's favorite arena: RA2T#2 Arena, with 4 appearances.
Most out of nowhere victory: Mechadino vs RedAce
The game's LEAST favorite arena: Robot Wars Arena. Fun Fact: In every game crash, every glitch restart or re-record, never once did this arena get rolled.

Okay, now for the voted stuff:
The community's favorite arena
The community's LEAST favorite arena
The community's favorite moment
Best overall bot
And, finally, the best of memes.

My votes:

Off-Topic Discussion / One year ago today (and a little more)...
« on: September 13, 2016, 04:53:53 PM »
Well, I don't know exactly what this goes under, but I'll assume off-topic just to be save.

One year ago today (and 4 days to be specific), I managed to make an account (why I lurked the replica section for ~5 years before actually joining is another story that I don't want to tell right now) on a forum called Gametechmods. I was a really eager kid who sincerely wanted to play the game and get better (although I overestimated myself). And that worked. Advice was helpful, people (with the exception of HurricaneAndrew lol) were friendly, and I overall have loved it. So I'll cut to the chase. Thanks. Thanks for being helpful and an overall fun, if not slightly awkward, community. It's been one year, and hopefully there'll be many more. :)

EDIT: And yep, that was really sappy.

Challenge Board / WenXiangLee vs Silverfish (Silverfish Wins)
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:55:52 AM »
Ok, I need to fight somebody, so why not wen?
Anyway, here are the rules:

Stock-S HW
Wen can use RA2CF if he wants, but I personally will not.
Combat arena, no hazards
No BFE/AAM/HAX, but since wen may use RA2CF, it probably won't matter, since you can replicate the effects.
Best of 3

Anybody want to host?

When I try to open the game, it starts loading like normal, but before any screens appear, the process ends... This happened in Stock 1.4, download version, and DSL 2.2... any advice?

General Support / Having issues with ASAS

I'm trying to use asas (Mr. AS Advanced stacking) but it's having issues: the axle breaks correctly(and i AM in pause mode) but it never flies away. any ideas on what's wrong?

Discussion / GTM AI?
« on: November 28, 2015, 04:47:31 PM »
I was thinking(and have been since before I actually joined) that maybe a Gametechmods AI pack would be interesting. I don't know if anyone else has had this thought, and I probably would do it stock(for now). Any feedback/ideas?

Welp, a 2 in 1 day. This is my first IF bot, done with no research whatsoever.

bot cropping will be fixed soon.
