Trovaner Chassis Glitch (Trov. Glitch)
« on: February 10, 2010, 06:12:20 PM »
Yo, I made a tutorial on this amazing glitch. A video should help you immensely, because the main reason this glitch didn't get popular is because it was a little hard to understand with just text.









My WMM was messed up, so the output is a little weird (sounds a little off, etc.) but you can still get the just of it I hope.


RULES:

  • Lines may NOT cross or overlap.
  • Angles cant be too small (don't know the ratio, but it's near 2:1)
  • Game must be in LOW quality, or the bot will NOT work in your test garage or exhibition matches. There is a simple fix to this, however, which I included in my tutorial, that will keep your game looking it's best while still being technically on the low setting.
Enjoy!

Excellent! Well that certainly opens up some neat possibilities for creativity among us.

I feel some questions coming on... but the first one I have is: If you adjust your quality settings on your game, build the bot and test it and everything works ok, but then send it to somebody for a tournament.  Will it likely cause their game to crash if they try to use it for a match?  Or does the tourney host have to change the quality settings to accommodate the bot?

The tournament will have to change the quality settings, but if they use the little trick I showed the game will still look exactly the same, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm glad that someone got around to making a video of it... Thanks Sage. I also didn't know about the low graphic fix so thanks again.

The original tutorial was written on the old forums which was the reason why nobody seemed to remember it until I reposted the instructions.

I'll admit that the glitch is not very useful but if you want to tighten the chassis or make donut bots, this might help. Just remember the RA2 calculates weight by surface area (not volume).

I like your pronunciation of Chassis at 0:36.
Better than GK since 2009.
I think SM is a pretty cool guy, eh builds unicycle-bots and doesn't afraid of anything

I believe both are acceptable

does anyone know that English is the hardest language in the world ? becasue we have so many variations, pronouncement and words that are the same but pronounced differently like Live (Lyve or Liv)

Sorry about that.
 
Anyway, I was kicked out of french along with about 70% of the people who took it for failing it.

BOT, please!

TROV GLITCH LUURRRRVVVVVVV <3

...... Come to think of it, I haven't been able to replicate Donut bot's chassis yet. XD
Though some cool and unique designs are made possible via the Trov Glitch, I wouldn't know how to do the 'donut chassis' using it.  BFE required.
To my knowledge, there are three ways of making donut shaped chassis using my glitch. When I originally posted the glitch, I challenged people to try to figure out how to make a donut chassis (and Firebeetle posted two that I hadn't known about prior to posting the question). I still have Firebeetle's post explaining how to do it in a word document but I'm too lazy to upload the pictures; not to mention, I want to see if anyone else can figure it out.

A genuine cube 'donut chassis' with the TG?
This is interesting Trov.  I'm waiting to hear how...
Input is appreciated. :)
-Arrogance is a quantity devoid of quality...
-As a client once told me "This is my story, and it's sticking to me!"
-Relationships these days are like the 'Arrival' section of the airport: a lot of baggage is being revealed in one place, and not a lot of it is being correlated to its real owners...
