Re: Can't connect to local server

When I connect to the server I don't get the usual server messages, such as version info. The last message is Global Login Approved, but I cant spawn. A few comments on your server config file: You're showing your local admin password in that config file - better change it now, and hide it before po...

Re: Please Read

It's proven by the fact people have been banned maybe 3 or 4 times one after the other that bans don't work. Nonsense. All that shows is that there are a number of recidivists in the league. While managing them is a waste of everyones time and energy, it is the decent thing to do to let them learn ...

Re: Please Read

The proponents of allowing foul language and associated obnoxious behaviour in the league claim this is about the occasional 'wtf' when it most certainly is not. While I'm not a GU admin, I do host one of the offi servers for the league (pay the bills for it) and so the GU Admins kindly allow me to ...

Re: An Appeal to Server Admins -- and the Players

I understand your concern, and you can be sure that many server owners prohibit profanity on their servers. Likewise in the leagues, admins are vigorous in banning players (from the league) for profanity, but even then there are a number of "repeat offenders" who earn increasingly longer bans. Perso...

Re: Compiling 2.4.0 on Debian 6 Squeeze 64-bit amd64

I assume there isn't a suitable package in the repositories? Did you try "apt-get install bzflag" or something before resorting to compiling the source code? During the configure step, it usually tells you if it is going to build a client, server, admin tool etc or not (and why not). In step 7 its u...

Re: How to get terminal to run BZFS from 2.4, not 2.0?

I assumed that you installed v2.0 from source and not using your package manager. If you did build v2.0 from source then using your package manager to uninstall may not work well (or at all). I'm not sure about Ubuntu but SuSe sometimes puts things in weird places :)

Re: How to get terminal to run BZFS from 2.4, not 2.0?

Uninstalll is best, but its not essential. It also depends on how (where) you installed v2.4. Either will work though.

Re: How to get terminal to run BZFS from 2.4, not 2.0?

Yes, that is possible - the last of the three options above does that. The first step is to find out where the binary files are in v2.0. So, type which bzfs into a command line. The path that is returned is where your system is "looking" for bzflag and bzfs. Make a note of it (write it down). Now ma...

Re: How to get terminal to run BZFS from 2.4, not 2.0?

Do you want to keep both? One way would be to CD into the directory containing v2.4 and run bzfs from there. Or create a shell script which runs v2.4 bzfs and put it in your path Alternatively you could find out where v2.0 is: which bzfs rename that and put a symbolic link through to your v2.4 bzfs ...

Re: bz crashes with Segmentation fault

Then install the openGL dev files (eg glew...

Ahh ok, I suggest then that the configure script be amended to remove the now invalid options. The first thing I did was configure --help to check if those options were still valid.

Re: Rule change for planned substitutions

the resulting spawn position is randomly chosen by the server. I don't see really how this can be considered "unfair" or could possibly benefit the substituting team. Sometimes those random positions help one team while disadvantaging the other, and that's all we meant by that. For example spawning...
