Off-Topic Discussion / No more announcements about leaving GTM.
« on: December 11, 2018, 03:48:37 PM »
I'm tired of members saying "I'm leaving." This is really annoying, and it just makes GTM look bad. If you're actually leaving forever, put that. Otherwise, please stop posting "I'm leaving" statements. This is Drama, you know, and it's a bad impact on your profile.

Existing Games / ReCharge RC
« on: December 11, 2018, 09:18:04 AM »
Here's a good time-killer for the builder fanatic- ReCharge RC.
I play this little game on my Ipad, whenever RA2 isn't available. You build your own race tracks and customize your own RC car! (BattleBots and RC car racing are my two main hobbies.)


These are examples of the game in action. It's compatible on smart devices of all kinds.

Tutorials and Tips / Redalert's guide to building Wandering Spinners
« on: December 03, 2018, 09:12:26 AM »
You're probably wondering what wandering spinners are- the name says it all. Wandering spinners are simple, switch-activated bots that ride around on one wheel or on disks (like drum heads in Ironforge). Wandering Spinners use their spinner weapon to ricochet the bot off walls. Oh, and tear chunks off opponents.

Wandering Spinners differ from One Wheeled HS in the factor that they drive almost perfectly straight. They never drive in tight circles, and they never zigzag.

Another factor, Wandering Spinners are typically slow, and all power is devoted to the weapon motor, so the bot can easily bounce off walls. Wandering Spinners' weapons have to be built super-tough in order to avoid fracturing when bumping a wall.

In this topic, you'll find step-by-step instructions for how to build wandering spinners.

General Support / What's a useful method for developing RA2 stock arenas?
« on: November 19, 2018, 01:36:29 PM »
I always wanted to make my own arenas. The main reason for this topic is because I would like to use a software that works. I also want to know how to code arena txts without the game crashing.

Do you guys have a recommended software for this?

Creativity Showcase / Redalert's CAD BattleBots
« on: November 15, 2018, 12:26:29 PM »
I never posted my CAD designs before, so I thought I'd post a few.

My CAD designer doesn't have a screenshot function, so I just have zip files.
The first is a drum spinner...

...and this one's a hammer.
both designs have moving parts such as spinning wheels and working weapons!

Discussion / RA2 Infrogrames Errors
« on: November 13, 2018, 01:36:17 PM »
Have any of you tried extracting RA2 lately and received the message "extraction failed"?

I invested in what was going on, and I wasn't able to extract "infrogrames support" or other familiar files.

Post your concerns here if you've also been receiving these errors, because maybe we can find a solution to this problem.

Personal Tournaments / R.A.I.T. Stock Tournaments
« on: November 06, 2018, 12:56:19 PM »
Introducing the R.A.I.T. Stock Tournament Series.
These are competitions held just for fun, and They're for stock bots.

Here are the rules for ALL the tournaments...

> stock bots only

> All bots must be built entirely in the bot lab. Bot file editing and cheating is not allowed.

> No cheating components- all bots must consist of components found already in the bot lab- EXEPTION- Snapper IIs, bear claws, samurai swords, EMERGENCY flippers, and mud runner tires are allowed if you don't already have those in your game. You can find them in the components file of RA2 v1.4.

> Flaming of any type will get you disqualified.

> ANY one can participate in these tournaments

> You'e only allowed to use EEFE, trinity, chicken, snapper loading, and stacking glitches. No other glitches are allowed.

> Your bot must be able to be controlled. In other words, your bot must consist of forward, left, and right capabilities. Glitches and "mindless bots" are not allowed.

I started making Hardcore bots after I started seeing how to build them. Soon after that, I built my first hardcore bot- a 500kg. popup named, "Black Dragon." Sorry there's no picture available!

Another early bot I built is shown below- Yuki.
