Well I dont think there is a single soul on this planet that would have predicted this bracket unfolding.

Isnt Simon Scott involved in machining somehow? (made Concussions drum iirc)

Sooo im going to say that Warhead is still feeling the pain from its encounter with Minotaur in 2016, They look like they are having a truckload of fun though

That's what I was wondering, if the hit from Minotaur created some tiny fracture in the dome they didn't notice.  It's just bizarre to wrap my head around the idea that a fight that happened 2 years ago could still have effects on fights today.

I agree, it sounds weird being 2 years ago... but Warrior Dragon was literally the first opponent they have faced with the disc since Minotaur played pinball with the head.

I enjoyed the Nostalgia trip with Robot Wars returning but THIS is the pinnacle of Robot Combat today..

I love the new presentation and format, it feels like a true sport and the hype is real.

Heres to a long, epic season!

All in all, another good series in the books, would be nice for a longer season to get signed off but I hope the ratings keep rising to the mainstream highs the original series had. Back into hibernation I go...

On another note, I only just noticed Dead Metal has Yellow lights and Yellow illuminated eyes.. nice touch, is that new for this series or have I just been weirdly un-observant?

Found this interesting..

I know Whyachi were selling some SoW bits a while back.. Is this where they ended up? or a full-blown clone?

Joe is pretty much dead.

Savage.

First Blood is no secret game and never has been, the search function on this forum will yield at least a few working download links.

First Blood was an Alpha / Proposal for the Botlab layout, it was a means of dividing robot classes so they could be individually balanced, nerfed, etc but the feedback at the time was generally negative and people proceeded to just mix the tabs anyway so the concept was scrapped (also its how we discovered the power tab was unbreakable)

Now its just a fun little patch if you ever get bored of watching grass grow.

nah joe's still around, if you PM him you might get something back

Like a smaller, less reliable Starcore signal..

Downloaded it today hoping to give it a go but just opens and automatically closes. I'm presuming this is because I'm running Sierra rather than Yosemite? If so, any plans to get it to run on Sierra?

Hmm Ill have to look into it, It should support up to El Capitan at present, I am yet to update any of my Macs to Sierra so I dont have any test subjects at present to work on it

Does it do it at every launch attempt? It may search for some Wine plugin updates on your first ever launch (sometimes the app name above the icon in the dock says "Wine" as opposed to "Robot Arena 2" when its doing its setup related things)

Edit: Also just to double check, needs to be the admin account with full permissions too

Edit 2: Possibly have the app on the harddrive too, not on external usb's etc

oh man i was asking for this years ago thank you you beautiful beast you

Very welcome :)

Fun grand final, I knew it was going to look like a metal blood bath, the true era of spinners is upon Robot Wars.

As I said before Carbide have that thing so well balanced between destruction and stability, doesnt eat itself up as much as some other spinner robots.

as for the format, I dont mind it but Id rather single elimination and the return of the pinball tournament myself  :mrgreen:

Carbide have that robot so well balanced between damage, stability and reliability.. hardly ever flitches when it hits something..

I havent a clue when it comes to xbox, never owned one in my life lol

PS4 has a trackpad on its controllers and support for a usb mouse. but in that same breath you can also buy a wireless adaptor from sony to use a ps4 controller on your PC / Mac.. which is a much simpler task than coding a new port lol

RA2 For Mac
Uses wine, not a mac port

Depends how much you want to split hairs here, it has Wine blended into to run as a stand alone application, meaning the end user doesnt actually have to install or download wine itself.. I just used Wines coding instead of doing it myself  :mrgreen:

But its sure no Xbox port..
