The names are a bit unclear to me as well. For example in this code: # or, to link between known teleporters examp_tele1(front) and examp_tele2(back) link name example_realLink from examp_tele1:f to examp_tele2:b end are f and b 0 and 1? or are they dependent on what order the teleporters are specif...

Teleporter help

Actually it does, wraps right around a cube.

Sometimes.

It depends.

Couldn't get startside and endside to work I think instead I'm just going to make a long texture and stretch it out over the whole cube.

Making Textures on just one surface

I'm wondering how one applies a texture to just one face of a meshbox.

Ideally I'd like to put a different texture on each face.

Oops got it

Done and done.

Actually, I just found out about -mp in the bzfs settings...

How do I use it? -mp 0,4,4,0,0 doesn't work

nor does -mp {0,4,4,0,0}

2 teams instead of 4?

Is there any way to force the game to put players onto 2 teams instead of 4? I'm setting up a game vs bots using the -solo option and I would like to have it be me & 3 bots vs 4 enemy bots. Right now I can't figure out a way to do that. The best I can get is me & 1 bot vs 4 enemy bots (6 players cau...

Ah ha, Q and W are exactly the answer. They're not listed in the help menu, but I figured they existed. I should have just tried every letter really.

Thanks again.

Bingo! _tankAngVel is the one. Thanks.

Now, how about taking off the chat window and radar, can this be done in the client?

I don't see such an option in the command line flags for bzflag.

I'm aware of this. Yes I'm running my own server (otherwise fiddling with bzw files would be pretty silly).

What I don't know is the name of the setting commands to put into a conf file. I've figured out that tankSpeed is tankspeed, but what about turning rate?

Edit tank properties: speed/ turning rate

Where can we modify thank turning rate, speed and shot velocity defaults? I tried fiddling with the properties in the physics object of bzw but had no luck. And that seems to apply to other objects in the game, which I don't quite understand. Any help? I'm hoping to avoid recompiling if necessary bu...
