Re: BzFlag is dying

One thing that might help a newb not commit humilicide would be a rating system based on who is on the map at join time. It might help if a newb understands they are about to jump into a shark tank.

Re: my.bzflag.org DNS change

It seems that some versions of libcurl (version 7.18.2, and maybe others around there) have a caching bug. Servers using these buggy versions of libcurl will need to restart bzfs in order to pick up the new list server IP address. These servers are affected: 0.linuxceptional.com Seems like Debian L...

Player name make s poll ban impossible

I'm no server side software guru, but there was a player cheating on mofo and we could not poll ban him due to his name.

/poll ban memor<| cheating

returned something like

There is no info on poll ban

Re: Inserting servers at the top of the list

I wonder how many people install, come into Boxy or Mofo when they're busy... get slaughtered, kicked for TKing... and just quit and never come back. It happens a lot. I've seen it in our linux user group where we show people the game, they drop onto an active map and get repeatedly blown up. It's ...

Bladlanders' Eria Ziel map is back

0.bladica.com:5156 is once again hosting the Eria Ziel map by w00t! If you'll remember, I got whacked with a $300 bandwidth overcharge a year ago April which forced me to shut down the Bladlander Eria Ziel map. Well, I moved my colo server this week to a new colo using a new server. Server specs: Co...

Sticky Surface

As a feature request, I was thinking of a surface that you can roll or jump onto, but you can't jump once you are on it. You can only drive off of it.

Enjoy!

(btw, this map sucked 90 gigabytes of bandwidth in a single month)

It was running on a dual processor Compaq rackmount server running Linux with 1G ram. It seldom used more than 1 or 2% of CPU, but it was obviously eating network...

0.bladica.com permanently down.

Unfortunately, excessive bandwidth charges ($173.73 in just a single month) has caused me to stop hosting the Bladlander map on my server. :cry: If anyone knows of a server that would benevolently host this map, please let me know. It's been quite popular lately. Sorry for the abrupt suspension, but...

Yes, bzadmin is just a program that allows you to chat in game without playing. Anyone can use it to connect to any server. It's like the chat function ripped out of BZFlag and set alone by itself. To become the server admin, you either have to be set in an admin group (the complex way) or do what ...

When I start bzadmin, it always starts in observer mode. How do I get it to start with me as the admin?
