Robot Arena 2 Question?

Q: Robot Arena 2 Question?

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forums but i figured you guys could answer my question. I just purchased Robot Arena 2 online for 20 bucks, and at first Vista wouldn't execute it. But then I downloaded a patch from the RA website. Now the game loads to the first few intro screens that say ... Infogrames...etc. all the title screens. But when it suppose to be on the menu screen its just black with the cursor showing...I've tried to run it in compatiblity mode but it did not work...

Is this game not compatible with Vista or what? I have Vista Ultimate x64, ATI 3200 HD
*I ordered windows 7 and it should be in before Christmas, would it possibly work on it?

Thanks for any help!

Preferred Solution: Robot Arena 2 Question?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I saw a commercial on TV that just said whoismrrobot.com. When I go on the website it shows a CMD style text asking me if it wants me to know a secret. I select yes and a short video appears. Then some gut named Mr Robot kept writing CMD style messages and then asks for my E-Mail address but I did not want to risk going any further because I fear that this is some sort of hacking method. Anyone have any idea what kind of messed up website this is? Please respond with a reasonable answer.

Robot City is an old '95 game. Nevermind why I'm wasting my time with it..

I can load the game just fine and everything works except for a small glitch in the display. When I move the mouse it leaves a large square trail behind it and distorts the screen turning it black.

The help file mentions this and I am running the game in 640x480 and 256 color just as it says I should.

Any ideas?

Here is the section of the help file that mentions it:

7. Video Display Problems
Robot City requires 256-color mode
Robot City is an 8-bit, 256-color application. In order to view
Robot City, you need a video card which supports at least 256
colors in 640x480 resolution. Robot City requires you run in 256
color mode. Other modes will cause colors to appear incorrectly
and may cause streaking or trails on the screen. If you are not
in 256-color mode, a warning dialog will appear when you launch
Robot City telling you to correct the problem, exit and restart

I'm looking for an application which works as follows:

I give it the address of a webpage, and it opens up each link on the webpage, and then opens up each link in each opened up page, etc... and so on.... until a pre-specified number of levels deep.

So, in some sense I'm looking for a web-browsing robot.

This way, I can sit back and view all the web-pages without having to injure myself by repeatedly clicking on the links.

Can anyone point me to anything like this? (freeware please).

Do SSDs have frequencies or data transfer rates that one has to consider before buying?

Please tell me if this is write or wrong and why:
SSD are essentially flash drives, we have had flash drives for some time now and they are not that fast because of their USBB interface which is a bottleneck but SSDs will have a SATA interfaces which are a lot faster.

A:I'm new to the SSD arena so I have a few uestions

Of course you have to look at the read write specs of a ssd before you make a purchase.

#2 is right and you explained it yourself, it`s not a usb interface it`s a sata interface.

I don`t know why you think flash drives aren`t fast, I run Zorin, Ubuntu, and Linux off them and they fly

And if you install Windows off a flash drive it blazes.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio laptop and recently whenever I use YouTube, Spotify, Netflix, stream or play audio/visual content anywhere the sound freezes and makes a robot noise constantly.

I am a dummy with computers and technical stuff but from what I have read on the web regarding this matter it could have been something to do with drivers, too much stuff on the hard drive, flash and/or java needing updating etc..

I have done all of these things (I think) and it still hasn't done anything! Could someone plleeassee advise me what I need to do to sort this out.

Also, my fan is very hot and sounds like a vacuum cleaner (I have tried cleaning it, I think I need a new fan) but could this be affecting anything?

Thanks all

edit: I use latest internet explorer, and sometimes chrome but it is the same on both of the browsers, and besides it happens with spotify which is downloaded?

A:Audio sounds like a robot on everything, please help!!

It does sound like something having to do with your sound card drivers. I would go into the device manager which is in the system tab of the control panel and completely uninstall the sound card and any other related components; reboot; then let windows hopefully re-detect and reinstall the sound card and its associated drivers.If you need more info on anything just ask.

Hi, I have a problem using this SW.
We have just start to studying this program at the university, and I have some trouble to solve this exercise:
"Two-piece suites are processed by a dry cleaner as follows. Suites arrive with exponential time
between arrival times having a mean of 6 minutes, and are all initially served by Server 1. Upon
completion of service at Server 1, one piece of the suite (the jacket) goes to Server 2, and the
other part (the pants) to Server 3. During service at Server 2, the jacket has a probability of 0.05
of being damaged, and while at Server 3 the probability of a pair of pants being damaged is
0.10. Upon leaving Server 2, the jackets go into a queue for Server 4. Server 4 matches and
reassembles suit parts, initiating this when the server is idle, and two parts from the same suit
are available. If both parts of the reassembled suit are undamaged, the suit is returned to the
customer. If either (or both) of the parts is (are) damaged, the suit goes to customer relations
(Server 5). Assume that all service times are exponentially distributed with the mean (in
minutes) as below.
Server 1: Mean service time 6
Server 2: Mean service time 4
Server 3: Mean service time 5
Server 4: Mean service time 5 (if undamaged)
Server 4: Mean service time 8 (if damaged)
Server 5: Mean service time 12

A:Arena Simulation by Rockwell

Hi kinglolloman and welcome to PCHF
I'm afraid I have never heard of the software "Arena Simulation by Rockwell".
As you are probably well aware already, you probably should sketch the system with pencil and paper before attempting to create something with the software package.

The one tip I am capable of giving you at this point is - is this a multi-threaded application?
It is more work for you if it is and perhaps it is out of scope for this particular exercise, or perhaps it will achieve you a higher score for attempting this solution?

Basically I am asking if the services can run simultaneously or if they have to run concurrently?
Does the system have to wait until 'Suit 1' has been processed before it starts on 'Suit 2'?

I suppose it depends on how many machines you have at your disposal, yes?

Let's make this short and to-the-point:
- Purchased XPS15 9550 in April 2016
- Upgraded SSD to Samsung 950 Pro 512GB.  RAM is 32GB Crucial DDR4-2666
- Purchased the WD15 and TB15 docks
- I work at a high-tech company, one that designs and works on PCs, laptops, and desktops.  I have a degree in EE.  So I am very very technical.  
- OS is Win10 Enterprise x64 with my company's standard IT bundle.  
1. TB15 does not work.  USB devices will drop after 5 minutes and DP / HDMI will drop a few minutes later.  Tried all the drivers and BIOS updates.  TBT utility will fail to detect the dock even if connected. Updated TBT FW to NVM16.  It is only good for charging the battery.   
2.  WD15 partially works.  USB and DP work >80% of the time, but highly disruptive during the work day.  Decided to use it just for charging as well.
3.  Called Dell TS multiple times on the TBT problems above, and had MB replaced twice.  Problems remain.  I've just given up because their TS people have no clue about they product they are supporting, or just were not given any alternate path / options after replacing the MB twice.  I can attribute problems above to Dell's faulty TBT implementation.

But researchers at the University of Washington think it's finally time to start paying some serious attention to the question of robot security. Not because they think robots are about to go all Terminator on us, but because the robots can already be used to spy on us and vandalize our homes.

A:Audio Freezing Sounding Like A Robot

Hi there

The problem is definitely a software one, because you said you tried another sound card and the problem persists.
The problem is most likely coming from your codecs/filters.

If you have codecs installed, uninstall them and try playing again.
Still not working, uninstall all media players. Re install VLC and try again.

Last ting I can think of is that you download and install XP codec pack.
Just Google it, you will find it.

Hope this helps

I have recently bought Quake 3 arena and I'd like to play it online with a friend. However I'm having problems.
I can join games with no problem.
I have downloaded the latest patch.
I let my router forward the quake 3 ports 27950-27960 TCP and UDP to my computer (as I'm behind a router)
However when I host a game, it's not appearing on the gamelist. My friend also can't connect to me when typing my IP.
Neiter can I join his game.
We both have switched off Firewalls.

Does somebody maybe have an idea why this is not working?
I'll be very greatfull,

Upon playing Quake 3 Arena my mouse seems to lock up or lag for a second or longer at some points. It seems to happen only when i move my mouse quickly.

The mouse itself isnt the problem, as I've tried three different brands. The problem cannot be duplicated in other games. My machine is far beyond recommended settings so it isnt a graphical lock up, its just the mouse.

If i was firing during the lock up, it will continue to fire until it unlocks, or same with jumping.

Quake 3 Arena has a specific command "M_filter" which I set to 1, then 5, then out of curiosity 2000 lol.... Nothing seemed to change.

One may suggest that I just raise my mouse sensitivity, but that isnt an option as slower sensitivities = better aim for me.

Upon more research, the lock up doesnt occur past mouse sensitivity 12, but I play with 2.7.

Anyone have any ideas on how to increase the mouse buffer size or whatever. Does that even exist?

Comp Specs:

HP Pavilion Elite m9150f
Windows Vista
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor @ 2.40 Ghz
3 Gig RAM
Nvidia 8800 video card.

Current / favorite mouse;
Some cheap Logitech style.

Tested Mice;
Razor Boomslang 2000 ( with updated drivers )
Logitech mentioned above
Some other cheap mouse that the brand name has worn off of

Any Ideas?

If you would like to try to reproduce the problem you can either download a free game based off of the Quake 3 Engine called Open Arena ( Have not tested Open Arena myself ) OR you can download the free stand alone ... Read more

A:Quake 3 Arena Mouse lag/lock up

Have you checked your mouse polling? Normal USB seems to be 125 Hz. Try one of the apps out there and see if you can increase it at least 250 Hz.

I use a PC with the following config:

P4 2.8 Ghz (32-bit)
256 MB GeForce FX 5200 GPU
260 GB Hard Drive
Sound Blaster Audigy 4
Windows XP SP3

I installed Quake 3 Arena which installs fine. Gameplay is perfect but only for the first 5 to 10 minutes. After about 10 minutes my machine automatically SHUTS DOWN!!!

I've installed the demo version of this game previously which doesn't give a problem. This happens only with the full version with maximum installation (about 580 MB). I've tried disabling explorer and playing, but the same problem persists.

The game works perfectly with minimum and maximum graphic configurations. I've tried everything but my machine shuts down. I've installed the same game from the same files on my laptop and everything works fine. My laptop never reboots.

What possibly can be the problem??? Please help me .............

Hi All,

I recently had to reformat my hard drive and have just got around to playing Open Arena again. When I start multi-player there are no servers displayed even though I have allowed the game access through the Windows Firewall.

I have looked around the internet for any answers but I have very little to go on at the moment.

Could someone help please?

A:Solved: OPEN ARENA - no servers

If your game one of over a hundred using GameSpy Master Server Query, it has been down for the past couple of days. Or even if you have found it going up and down this is due to either maintenance (for some) or a different problem for others. This has affected both older and new games across the genres.

You can read this "GameSpy's Master Server Query" Sticky by [WIZ]Falcon's (a moderator there) here.


It has come to our attention that the servers are not showing up in your game's server browser or GameSpy Arcade or on GameSpy Comrade.

There may be an error in the Master Server Query or there is possible maintenance that is taking longer then expected. The GameSpy Admins and Techies have been notified of the problem and are working on fixing it. It should be fixed hopefully soon so please just wait and look for another post confirming the fix or until you see servers in game.

The maintenance or error goes out to ALL games that use our Master Server Query. That means if the game uses GameSpy's server browsing to locate servers, you will not see any. You may how ever still be able to join game's by direct connecting to them through IP address.

Thank you.Click to expand...

In the meantime, you can go register over there to post your game's server not being up here:

At least they will know.

Good Evening,

I have downloaded Open Arena for the first time in a long while. I have tried going into a multiplayer screen but there are no servers visible. I don't believe my firewall is stopping anything and I have adjusted all the settings in the game, so there should be servers present.

Anyone got any clues? Should i have copied a server list to the game when I first downloaded it?
