looks pretty good! Nice pooper. I see a few clips that look sped up (correct me if I’m wrong), are there any clips showing the real cycle speed?

None of the clips were sped up. Some of the clips did use software stabilization to fix shaky camera which may have caused it to look a little weird.

Did those line trackers work effectively at differentiating between colour (I’m assuming that’s what they were doing)? Btw, great job with the reveal!

At the moment we’re only using the line trackers for ball detection. In our experience the values for red and blue are too close together, and given how much the line sensor value fluctuates because of factors like distance from the ball and lighting conditions, it’s not reliable at all. We’re waiting for the new optical sensor for reliable color differentiation .

The 7 stages of grief

  • Shock and denial. This is a state of disbelief and numbed feelings.

No! Only DRow is allowed to be on the GDC!!!

  • Pain and guilt.

Please… DRow is the chosen one…

  • Anger and bargaining .

I WILL NOT ALLOW OSCAR TO REPLACE DRow!!! Please, I will give you a 1x2x1x35 aluminum c-channel!

  • Depression .

Only… DRow… :sob:

  • The upward turn.

It’s fine… we can allow Oscar for now…

  • Reconstruction and working through.

Although I still mildly support DRow being on the GDC, my support now goes to Oscar.

  • Acceptance and hope.

Oscar for GDC!!!
