Discussion / BattleBots Toys
« on: June 10, 2009, 04:30:42 AM »
Does anyone else still have the little toy BattleBots that they came out with?
Strangely enough, I still have mine, most are still in tact even! That's not typical of my old toys.

Discussion / Remember Robotica?

Does anyone else remember the show "Robotica" that was on TLC for a while? I believe it was on the air about the same time that BattleBots was so popular. Seems like it came on right after "Junkyard Wars" on Wednesday nights on TLC.

Discussion / Hard Time Positioning Components
« on: June 09, 2009, 12:58:37 AM »
I am having trouble with positioning components. It's anytime I try to position anything outside of the chassis (such as a wheel onto a motor shaft). The mouse has to be positioned just right for it to let me place the component. And its really annoying when you have actually rotate the component.

Does anyone know what the problem is and a solution to it? Or is it just normal?

Discussion / Starting to Get the Hang of This :)
« on: June 08, 2009, 06:48:56 PM »
Hey guys, this is a kind of dumb post, but I'm pretty proud of myself. I finally got it working with the Starcore v3 AI pack. I get what you guys meant that if I wanted a challenge then that was the way to go. My own bot, that whoops up on the stock AI, can't even touch most of the Starcore AI. The farthest I got with it was round 2 (in season mode). So I got into my designs and looked through them and found the stock Coal Miner bot. So I tinkered with it, pretty much stripped it down to nothing but chassis, rebuilt, and tried it. It won the first event it was in. :)

I'll post some images of the design, if i can figure out how to post my screenshots.

I'm starting to get better!  Woohoo!

Discussion / How Much Does a Hard Copy of RA2 Go For These Days?
« on: June 08, 2009, 04:41:08 PM »
Just wondering...

And also has anyone ever played RA1?

General Support / Help Me... Please!

Well, I downloaded about every mod and AI pack I could find today, installed them all, and chose my AI pack that I wanted to play against. But when i try to open RA2 there is an error message box, you know the annoying little "Send error report" dialogue box. So of course I have done something wrong. Anyone have any ideas what I've screwed up how to fix this?

Discussion / Newbie Here!
« on: June 07, 2009, 05:37:46 AM »
Hey, guys I'm kinda new to the whole RA2 Forum, but I'm not new to forums and definitely not new to RA2. But anyway I'm trying to figure out how all this works, with the tournaments and such. I have, in my opinion, a pretty formidable robot design, well at least against the default bots. I want to know what it will do when put against another player's bot. ASAP preferably. Its a fairly simple design, but it seems to work. So any takers?

Oh and if someone could please explain to me if I'm going about this all wrong, and I'm sorry if I am.
