I've just tried Fire -> Axle, and Axle -> Fire on one of my test bots, and neither of them seemed to work. And that got me wondering, are there any components which don't effectively lose the collision mesh if they've already been attached before Hax Mode is activated?

From what I can tell, there seems to be a limit of components you can have on for hax mode to work fully, when I built my haxmode pop up, I found I had to delete some things before it would let me stack all the DDTs into each other like I wanted.

Also, random thing which i've just remembered, hax mode doesn't work if you've attatched the piston to another motor.

But it does work if you attach the piston to a SmartZone. =D Which really helps with the tiny chassis's and such.

Yeah, I think it's just when it's on a moving component, it must mess up the....thing....that happens....I really don't get why hax mode works XD
One other thing, I'm not 100% sure, but I think you also need to have the axle itself inside the chassis

Nope. Axle can be attached to the SmartZone too. =) But make sure you don't attach it to the central point, because you can't actually select it if you do.

Fair enough, never tried it in a smartzone TBH

I've never attached an axle while using hax mode and it always works for me

About that necro glitch, I have fell on it while piston loading.

It can be fixed if you remove the piston by BFE and not screw up the whole bot file.

Dunno if this hasn't been said before...

Of course it can be fixed with BFE. It can also be fixed with the pause button... O: I BEAT THE NECRO GLITCH

So you have decided to specialize, wizard ?

You'll have to remove that beard, lurk in graveyards, wear a black cloak with hood, and whiten your skin tone. Also your magic staff needs a skull on top of it.

...I assumed it necro'd when paused as well. I always use Pause when I leave the Test Lab when Haxing.

So yeah, thought it was about time I sat down and tried this glitch

Followed all of R0B0's directions and pictures and it doesn't work for me.. AAM it is then..

Try firing before adding axle mount.

Done that..

Fired before, after before and after, everything but it wont ever enter Hax Mode.. (obviously starting from scratch every-time I tried)

Hax Mode really hasn't killed building as some thought it would, has it... XD

Well no tournaments have really come to light that it could be exploited in

There is no rulings still so when one come around expect a big Hax mode discussion then..

Presumably, there's something that prevents Hax Mode from working when attached. My guess is some sort of burst motor, maybe a SnapperII...

Try snapper loading the rad until the pitch of the motor changes from a a high whine to a low roar. That's when it works the best. Also, try stacking some things like a motor into a battery. See if it works then.

Maybe I should try a different game.. Its "Doomed Bots" AI so I take that name alone as a bad starting place :P
