Not to worry guys, Nothing has been deleted, all boards that have been removed are simply hidden while we dig through them and migrate any worthwhile topics into the updated sections :)

Thanks guys ill keep you posted when its safe to explore them again lol :)

Thanks, Ill look into it.. I had a poke around earlier and couldnt generate any crashing.

Just out of interest, which browser(s) are you using too? Explorer, Firfox, Chrome, etc? its probably not that relevant but doesnt hurt to investigate that also

Can you please provide a link or two?.. or even the name of the thread(s) so we can investigate? :)

If parts end up in cheatbot2 they are no longer legal as most tournaments state "no cheatbot2" Likewise Its very confusing to tell someone you cant use a 2.2 robot in 2.2.1

model numbers are not a big deal to use.. its strictly just to divide/ clarify legal robots.

When the 140cm extender was voted on for legal use in stock we made the jump to 1.4 to clarify the rule change.

But First priority is to get into contact with Clickbeetle in regards to correcting the errors in the components and then we at least have a balanced game.. content changes can come later.

Another solid popup. Really enjoy the skin. Looks to not have many razors total, though.

Camo made from skulls FTW

Its not the most weaponed popup ever (3-4 Razors from memory) but it is packed with a couple of extra surprises... untested surprises lol but hopfully it gets the chance to shine in at least one match

Speaking of DSL 2.2.1, it would be a good time to include a patch that fixes some general things, like the broken arenas/Freestyle not working at all and possibly some component AP's like Beta Bursts or NPC Rights(or was it Lefts?) by making new components and having the old ones in a cheatbot 2 menu, just like Click did with the hinges?

I agree with the addition of patching the Compressor and Ocean Platform Arenas permanently in the patch but if you are editing components it will outlaw some past robots.

Again, not outside the relm of possibility but if you are editing the actual content id jump to a 2.3 version number just to clarify the differences in the robots.. Then players can have the option of playing 2.2 just like they can play 2.1 standalone if they choose

Wait... so how often are they going to air the series? I assumed once a year but that would make filming in December very much in advance..

I was planning on dropping all the AI robots into the robot designs folder too so you can play replica v replica

If you did want to use the AI parts, just use Cheatbot2 but (if I recall correctly) a lot of the AU parts were BFE'd on and dont actually have proper attachment points.

well thats a shortcut I guess.. yes? but thats a band-aid fix no different to rolling back to 2.1

I never said we shouldnt do it but I feel the correct means of achieving the result is to first touch base with Clickbeetle

Then migrate the community over to a 2.2.1 version.

Then everyone is on the same playing field and DSL is balanced again, No confusion :)

It's not fair taking someone's baby and patch it?  Talking bout a mod for a game no one in this forum has made  :gawe:

Clickbeetle spent hours making the 2.2 content for free..

It wouldnt be fair to take his project, rebalance everything and call it offical without at least consulting him on the idea.

can you not just release a DSL 2.21 patch that nerfs them
as long as people agree on the stats and whatever i cant see a downside

This ^

Far to much hours spent to just throw away over some numbers in a text file.

a DSL 2.2.1 release would fix the issue then we still have 4 versions of the game to play..

I guess the only issue is who would conduct the patch seeing as it is still Clickbeetles baby.. its not really fair to just takeover someone elses project and patch it.

That said with 2 versions building with the "standard" ruleset perhaps DSL could migrate to IRL to maintain it as an alternative. it would though, technically make a lot of 2.2 robots no longer legal as such.. 

On a side note ill wrap up the AI for my stock robot and get that over to you a little later today too :)

It seems a lot of GTM has been updated.  Such as the entire RA3 section being removed.

Just combined with the Robot Arena 2 section to form 1 single, convenient "Robot Arena" board.

It still has independent showcases, the remaining sections were not popular enough to warrant the space they took up.

Its cleaner this way and you only have to go into each section once to read all the RA2 and RA3 topics :)

So if I understand it right from the splash.. #2 has the skull inside the pumpkin.. then the skull pops out of the pumpkin via piston?

If so thats some really cool attention to detail.. id imagine the pumpkin itself was challenging enough..

Props to whoever did it.
