Discussion / Robogames 2 - Discussion
« on: April 07, 2019, 09:35:39 AM »
Hi all. Recently, thanks to Billy, we've been in discussion about the future of Robogames 2.

With Billy uploading the Antweight & Beetleweight Division and Bild looking to continue the SHW division, we've decided it best have Billy continue those divisions. However, with the other weightclass we're looking into restarting them from the signups stage. We're thinking about doing this for various reasons, the two main reasons, being it's such a mess at this point that restarting the event would be cleaner than picking up the pieces of it. On top of this the time between now & then I think people much prefer there current bots.

In regards to members who are no longer active that had entered RG2, we'll be keeping those bots in out of respect for them.

A few members in this discussion have offered to host divisions, these being.
TheOrcCorp - HW
Bildschirm - CW
Myself - MW
Billy - LW


However, if anyone wants to assist or possibly a backup host just in case. Feel free to ask. Whilst this is not set in stone, this is where we're looking to go.

In summary, Billy will continue to host the Antweight & Beetleweight Division, then the reboot of other weightclasses will happen during the summer-ish. Any questions or thoughts on the matter? I'd love to hear.

General Support / Judge.py issues.
« on: March 27, 2019, 12:40:39 PM »
In need of help for 2 axe bots using Judge.py. Assuming it's a StartAngle issue, I just cant get it working.

Here's the ai, along with the bot files

list.append(("Spares","Judge",{'radius':1,'StartAngle':-math.pi/2,'MotorID':1,'reload':5,'nose':math.pi,'range':99,'invertible':False,'topspeed':100,'throttle':100,'turn':60,'turnspeed':3,'weapons':(9,)}))
list.append(("Sillouhete 2 X","Judge",{'radius':1,'MotorID':72,'StartAngle':-math.pi*2,'reload':5,'nose':math.pi,'range':99,'invertible':False,'topspeed':100,'throttle':100,'turn':60,'turnspeed':3,'weapons':(9,)}))

Brackets, Vids, and Awards / Apex: Elite Series
« on: March 24, 2019, 02:55:20 PM »

GENERAL RULES
- DSL 2.2 HW
- IRL Building Style
- 64 Entrants
- Three bots per member.
- I'm willing to AI if you are not able to, but don't complain about it
- Entrants will not be reserved, and I cannot allow reserving spots or placeholder bots for any reason
- You can send your entrant to me through a personal message through GTM or Discord.

BUILDING RULES
- DSL 2.2 Bots only
- Heavyweight bots pls
- Build and enter a design that YOU built yourself.
- I can allow custom AI .py files if you need your entrant to do something specific that would otherwise not be possible with a normal .py file.  However, if it that makes your bot overpowered or is pointless and/or just stupid memes, then the entrant along with the custom AI .py is banned.
- IRL Rules Apply. Don't try to abuse sh** cheers.
- You must have a minimum of powered two wheels attached and must show controlled movement with said wheels.
- Shufflers will get no weight bonus.
- Modular bots are allowed, limited to 3. I will be asking for a list for your group and privately messaging you if it's bracket stage. Failure to respond will mean you'll use your default config for the fight.
- Multibots are allowed, but the total weight limit must have a maximum weight distribution of 75:25 weight difference.
- DSC's IRL Packs, Geice's AP mod for NPC's and batteries will be allowed (Even future releases)
- Weapon spam will not be tolerated.  With that said, I won't limit the number of specific parts for an entrant.  If there is a balance between weapon and it's power, then I can allow it.  (I'll be much more strict about it this time.  Cause last time, and with DSL 2.2 currently, Typhoon Teeth, for example are rather OP, so just be warned: Don't expect to use many Typhoon teeth this time.)
- The Mechavore Disc & Minion Disc, however, are straight up banned.  Mini versions of the parts are limited to one.
- Flamethrower bots are allowed, but using that bot with EternalFlame.py or a similar AI python is NOT.
- You can send your own component re-skins as long as you provide the necessary files to me when you enter and the ONLY change to said component(s) is the skin.
- The only cheatbot2 Components allowed are the Flatmotor, Slow Flatmotor, and the Overkill/TTD Servo Motor.  Everything else is banned (This means the AS balance patch and any components not in vanilla RA2 are banned.  Do NOT try and dance around this rule this time.)
- BFE, AAM, OBJRA2 and Every Sergepatcher Component Freedom tool, except for the weight bonus one, will be allowed for IRL purposes
- Deliberately terrible bots or joke-bots will be rejected instantly.  Please make something with effort for this.  (Inappropriate names also count)
- You can make an update once and only once per player. (The only exception if it's a skin change or anything extremely minor), but I will stop allowing updates when signups close.
- If an updated bot is illegal, then I will use the original bot you sent me.
- If I am feeling mixed opinions towards the legality of your entrant, then I will ask about certain details to make sure, plus conferring with other users for an alternate opinion.

BATTLE RULES:
- 3 minute length matches
- The Robot Wars 2016 Arena (Re-skinned) will be used for this tournament.
- I will try my best to make sure groups are not filled with one users bots, but I can't make any promises.
- If a Multibot has 75% of the total bot eliminated, then the whole entrant is considered eliminated.
- Only minor havoks will be shown in a main heat video (or ones that don't really affect any major outcomes), and bots will not be penalized for havoks.  However if a robot havoks more than enough times, then the robot will be eliminated and it's opponent will win via "Havoc Decision". I will be showing the best fight and be judging up until that point.
-There are 16 groups of four bots. With 2 advancing to a single bracket elimination stage.
-In the event of two bots entering the pit, the first bot to enter will lose.
-If there is no clear winner at the end, then I will be judging every bot fairly on based on Aggression, Style, and Control. The judging will have 3 catergories in which I split 11 points per catergory. Highest points in total wins.

Tutorials and Tips / BFE - A beginner's guide
« on: November 14, 2018, 09:35:33 AM »
BFE - Beginners guide.

BFE (Bot File Editing) is the process of adjusting the parametres of a given component using the .bot file.

To start with I recommend looking at Craig's guide to the bot file, in which he dissects the bot file itself, showing what each part does. https://gametechmods.com/forums/tutorials-and-tips/guide-to-the-bot-file-(re-up)/

Software you'll need.
Notepad++ https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

Changing the chassis height.
Changing the height of the chassis is a rather simple task. It is stored as a decimal point somewhere shortly after "Chassis". (The number of lines depends on the amount of points your chassis has)

To start with you'll want to create a chassis, example below.
 


Then you'll want to export it, this can be done by selecting the bot in the team HQ, then clicking "EXPORT". Navigate to your "Robot Designs" folder, in which you can open the .bot file using Notepad++.
 


Once opened, you'll want to find the word "Chassis". Once located, look for a decimal point number. That is the value of your chassis height, highlight this, then press Ctrl+H. This brings up the Replace function. Adjust the "Replace this" to the number you want it to be, then click "Replace All". Then save!
 

 


Open up your RA2, then import the bot you just saved. Tada!
 


Position Adjustment
Again, this is a super simple process, even more so than the previous one, specifically in building extenderbots.

To start with place the component (for this example I'm using "Extenderstart" to showcase the process better.). Then export the bot once done so.

I tend to think as bot building as a grid, in which components move on an axis. When opening up the bot without moving the camera, the axis will look like so.
 


When opening up the bot file, you should be able to find the components section, located near the end of the file.
 


We are looking to adjust the X, Y & Z values of the component in question. Each component in the bot has their own set of variables found above the name of the components, highlighted below
 


We are looking to adjust the line "0 0 0". This is the position of the component. X Y & Z respectively.
 


Remember that 10cm in the game is 0.1 on the file. Keep this in mind when you're adjusting the value.

Save up, and re-import your bot. If it doesn't move in the direction you intended to, you might have used the wrong column.
 

Here's the example from earlier, with the motor moved +0.4 (40cm) in the X axis.
 



Changing the component
For this, you want to change the .txt name in the bot file of the component you have, to the one you want to change.
 


This can be difficult as you need to know the name of the component in the file name. You can do this easier by attaching the component you want to change it to, to the bot, then copying that .txt name over to the component you need to change.

Hopefully this helps with your BFE. Any questions, just post a reply and I'll certainly try to answer them.
