This is the version of Robot Arena 2 distributed through gametechmods.com. The last official patch was version 1.3.
Description of 1.4 patch can be found at http://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=1
Game runs smoothly, all features are present and usable.
No graphical glitches that are not present in the Windows version.
Sound is perfect.
What does not
Running in Windowed mode, cursor will occasionally jump out of window to the MacOS desktop, despite not being near the edge of the window.
Game will hang frequently when quitting an event before completion.
A small dialog box pops up on launch stating that a font could not be found. This prevents the game from starting until the dialog box is closed. It can require multiple command-tabs to find. The font issue affects the post-event repair screen, where no text is visible to see what needs repairs.
Rarely, in the designer, the "hitbox" for attaching parts to other parts (e.g. wheels onto motors) will become incredibly small, making it almost impossible to play. A restart of the program resolves the issue.
What was not tested
Runs remarkably well and required no additional tweaking. Simply opened .exe file from the free download in Wine and it was ready.
