More Server list categories

Hi, I've been told this isn't a priority, but eventually it would be a great addition. BZflag needs a more modern server list. It should filter by play style, server lag times, and maybe even beginner/moderate/expert categories. Some of this metadata would have to be policed for accuracy, but if don...

Re: Problem playing BZFlag on small screens

Dear Dev's, All these sarcastic/snarky comments by devs are of no help. They just make you look weak. If its not something you're interested in implementing back in, just say so. For the record though, this game has stagnated partly from a lack of creative map-making and stable administrating, and p...

More opinion

I too have noticed a decline, but its more of a decline in massive amounts of players staying on one server for a long game session. Silvercat was a great place to go, a place where I could get a kick out of killing tons of newbies for hours (never boring). BZflag seems less chaotic than it has been...

I haven't posted in a while, but this definately deserves it. Yes, there are more American players than you realize, who play at different times than euros (except snick). It'd be really cool if there was a reliable one closer to home, that functioned well (unlike shellshock, silvercat, and recently...

No multi hunt on this beta build?

Good job on all aspects of this build (I especially like the shot reload meter). One thing I dont' understand is why the multi hunt feature was removed. Was this a feature in the first place, or just an error that allowed it. Either way, I don't think it should have been removed.

My Callsign

I have had ebert as my callsign for as long as I have played bzflag, because my uncle has called me that instead of my real name for an even longer time. It has ended up being a pretty solid one, and I added the strange capitalization EbErT just to make sure it was unique. And there it is. Good idea...

frog, i talked to thumper and he asked me what preferences you want on the map, so he seems interested. You can talk to him furthur, because I don't remember all the specs on it, since i last played it some three years ago.

Laptop keymapping for the Function keys

I recently bought a laptop and have discovered some limitations to its keyboard. It is missing some of the keys that are on a standard keyboard, and these keys have been moved over to the function keys:F1-F11. Controls like brightness and volume have been put on the them. I looked on the "change key...

Server list refreshing

Whenever I first bring up the server list or go back to it from a match, the server names do not match up with the number of players that it says on the right side of the list. Ex) When the secretplace server is highlighted on the list, it says on the side that there are only green and red spots ava...

mac resolution problems

Try different resolutions if you are getting a black screen and then it crashes, but as others have said, if you have mac 10.2, make sure you are not using version 1.10.8 of bzflag. I recommend downloading 2.0 and giving that a try, especially if you have a higher-end mac that can handle the graphic...

whoa, i had no idea you could move the cursor in and out of the window by going into options, so thanks for that info, sean. also, I believe sean and i had corresponded a while back about the freezing that was going on with my mac and the game. As the versions were updated, the freezing appeared les...

windowed f1 button

I greatly appreciate the indroduction of the windowed option that I had suggested to the developers a while ago. although it is a good start, there are many ways to improve it. Problems with it are: the fonts seem a little small, and driving is a problem because the cursor jumps from the top to the ...

wings

i for one am impartial to the wings flag. It IS fun to fly around with it for a while and slowly pick off the people on the ground, but trying to get away from another person who has the wings flag while you are stuck trying to jump at them is really lame. I think it is correct that this flag will n...
