For I have won Blood Brothers with two severely outdated bots and that obviously makes me a god amongst men at DSL Standard.

Or maybe all the rest of the bots in the tournament were sh**-tier. Let's go with the former.

Other Tutorials / How to not lose all your files in a crash.
« on: May 05, 2014, 11:10:52 AM »
Here's a tip for all of you that seem to be prone to having your computer crash and lose all your files. This seems to happen a lot, especially to tournament hosts in the middle of tournament.

To me, the solution is very simple. Just drag and drop your game folder or folders, depending on how many mods or AI packs you have, onto a flash drive. Then just install a standalone on any PC you you will use it on. Create shortcuts to each different mod on the flash drive itself to access each individual mod.

 I've been using this method for probably 3 years now. It works well. I have 5 different copies of RA2 on a 16 GB flash drive and there's still plenty of room to spare.

Another plus side is that it doesn't matter what PC you are using, you will always have all your RA2 files anywhere you need them as long as you have your flash drive.

Hopefully this will help you guys and now we won't have so many failed tournaments due to computer crashes.

The members in the new usergroups can't see the chatbox, post in showcases, or post in Forum Feedback, which is why I am posting this in Forum News.

Edit: Can't post in the Challenge Board either.

Edit 2: Or Real Robotics.

I don't think we have a thread for this and I don't feel like looking at each individual member's profile.

Existing Games / Half Life 3 Confirmed (For real)

It's finally happening. Valve just filed a trademark for Half-Life 3. This is the moment we've all been waiting for. It's here. How does this make you feel?

Yes, I know that the name is already used by a robot. Suck it.

Anyway, I recently acquired a 3-wheeler or All-Terrain Cycle. (No, they aren't illegal to own. Just to sell at a dealer.) A Honda 185S ATC, to be exact. Unsure what year it is, but they were only made from 1981 to 1984, I believe. It doesn't run, but I hope to have it running fairly soon.

This is what we are working with... This isn't mine, just an example.

Judging by this picture, the fenders on mine have been swapped from another ATC, because they are different and have clearly been modified to fit this one. Not a big deal, since they are broken and I am going to modify them even further since they are broken. I have already cut off the bottom half off of the fenders just above where it was broken. Apparently this is common practice in racing, anyway. (Yes, they actually race these things.)

The current plan is to get it running, obviously, but then I want to do a nice paint job on it. Apparently, restoration can be expensive.
So customization seems like the only logical course of action. The paint will be black on silver. The red and chrome parts will be satin or flat black and the currently black parts will be silver or a light grey.

As I've mentioned, I've already began work on the fenders. Pictures to come tomorrow, hopefully.

Discussion / Mod and AI Packs for safe keeping
« on: August 11, 2013, 05:19:40 PM »
I need links to all the different mods and AI packs that we can find for RA2.

I am putting all of them onto a jump drive so in the event of a hosting site going down, I can reupload to GTM, etc.

I have everything on the Downloads tab. I still need anything else.

Off-Topic Discussion / Adware Removal Program?
« on: March 29, 2013, 11:10:13 AM »
I am in need of an adware removal program and since I have never had to deal with adware, I need to know what's good.

Edit: Here is what I am dealing with.

Chatterbox / How do you get money?
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:18:49 AM »
Where do you work or how do you acquire money in other ways?

I work at a little sh**hole refractories plant. I work from 7AM to noon Monday through Friday. The pay isn't great, but the health insurance is awesome.

I also gather scrap metal occasionally for a few extra bucks here and there. You can make a good amount of cash if you sort it first instead of just selling it all as shredder scrap.

Oh, and the occasional sexual favor.

Chatterbox / Uh, I think I found the source code...
« on: November 15, 2012, 09:02:54 PM »
I was browsing and typed in "Robot Arena" for sh**s and giggles and found something claiming to be the source code for RA2. I downloaded it and reuploaded it here for ease of navigation.[].zip

I highly doubt it is what it claims to be, but I need confirmation that this isn't really the source code.

Edit: sh**. This was supposed to be in General Discussion.
