And after that, we tried a couple of other songs and had a whole conversation over the mac and pc ads and schitzophrenia and how linux = god, and long words that I can't say. the four of us (and a few joined in later and diing left) were probably talking more than playing :lol-old: .

2. When I don't use a joystick, I sometimes combine mouse and keyboard for games with look-around (e.g. A and D to look, and mouse to move, or WASD to move and mouse to look). Dude, I only have two hands, I can't control an infinite number of keys. 3. It would allow you to see around corners withou...

Isn't that the Othello slogan or something? I saw it on a box once I think...

EDIT: The Othello slogan is "A minute to learn, a lifetime to master."

Same concept though...

well if the people who can do dont think its a good Idea (and the maker of the game says NO!) it doesnt look like its gonna happen.

Three reasons this is a bad idea: 1. Complexity. Adds another layer to the game, and the people in charge don't want that. 2. Control. How the hell are players supposed to be able to do this without a joystick? Mouse players in particular... 3. Lack of usefulness. This really doesn't give you anyth...

Thats - to my mind - not what Tech Supports meant :?! The turret should definitely not rotate, because that would change the whole gameplay. I think it would be great to rotate the viewviewview . If so, one could probably get a better idea of whats around one, without looking on the radar all the t...

I think that it would be really nice to have a portable version, so you could stick just BZFlag on a USB flash drive. I don't want the linux or anything, but I saw some other neat portable apps and I thought that a portable BZFlag would be nice too.

I personally would love it, except for the fact that most of the servers are using 2.0.8 and it probably would cause a few problems. What are the new features?

Re: Funniest Moment Ever

One time when I was playing at viper2.pimpi.org, I got the thief flag and there happened to be a tank with Oscillation Overthruster protruding partially from the middle wall. I stole his flag, and then laughed, for he was now sealed inside the wall, and helpless to do anything to stop me from killi...

I should be removing that geno flag - I despise it myself even (and many others do). What would be a good replacement? Maybe SB mixed in with one or two bad flags (SB would rock in the center at Boxy War)... Definitley remove the geno flag. I think that WG would be a useful replacement. I hate it w...

I know that the brightness settings are in Options>Display Settings. You could try reinstalling BZFlag. Or maybe it's a mod that was put on the server that doesn't work, if it's only on one server. Have you done /report?

Oh. I can't do that. I installed BZFlag from the binary and if I tried to compile, it probably would mess something up. Is there any app (or person) that I could go to that could compile it for me? Sorry, I'm a total NOOB at this kind of thing.

Look-around

I think that there should be a look-around option, so that by holding a certain key you could glance to either side. This would be useful especially if joystick-twisting is enabled, so that by twisting your joystick you could have a glance at who is next to you.

If someone could, it would be nice to have something for the POV hat (the little mini-joystick on top of the actual joystick), like just treating it as arrow keys and allowing you to assign things for it to do, and maybe making the joystick twist (on certain joysticks, you can twist the handle) do s...
