Re: What was attractive about this game?

I agree and disagree with you, Const, on the mesh/meshbox/box thing. I think it does need to be fixed so there's only one type of geometry/physics, but it should probably be the mesh instead. Yeah, a lot of the maps now days are more eye candy than functional, but that's the fault of the map makers,...

Re: BZFlag 2.4.4 Release Candidate 1

I have marked servers as favorites, but have not used the favorites feature. The obs search is a good idea, currently, I only use searches when looking for a specific empty server. I will give these suggestions a try once 2.4.4 is officially released. Another idea for you: A lot of games have an opt...

Re: BZFlag 2.4.4 Release Candidate 1

Not a fan of the observers not counting in 2.4.4 server list, league players chat and hang out in obs quite a bit, and having the league servers get bumped in visibility helps other league players know there's people online to chat/match with. Furthermore it does nothing to solve the problem of peop...

Glitch when connecting to server

If you start to connect to one server, but immediately go into the server list and select another server and then try to connect to that 2nd server as well while the 1st server is still loading, the game will load the map from the 1st server and the player list from the 2nd server, then about a seco...

Re: 1vs1 contest for 2014

Lets see if I understand this correctly, you start in groups of 4, then 2 are eliminated. Two groups are then merged to make a new group of 4, then two more get eliminated. This continues till 1 group of 4 is left. Then 2 more get eliminated, the final 2 have a face-off, and the eliminated 2 fight f...

Re: Rikers

One considers why the topic of outsiders playing for NA is specifically avoided throughout your posts It's because it makes the most sense. Let's say the 'outsider' you're referring to is from Australia/New Zealand. When playing on the NA server, their lag (300) would be closer to that of a Europea...

Re: Can't play BZFlag?

Sounds like he's still running the 2.0 version of the game. If he upgrades to the 2.4 version of the game, he will see more servers. To explain a little bit on why this helps, 2.4 broke protocol with 2.0, so 2.0 clients can only talk to 2.0 servers and 2.4 clients can only talk to 2.4 servers. Afte...

Re: Some fun/weird gameplay ideas

Melee would not be complicated at all, actually you wouldn't even need a plugin. All you have to do is set the reload speed of the tank to reload super quick (reload speed also affects bullet life). You should have the bullet move at regular speed since the bullet would need to move from the spawn p...

Re: Not Able To Connect To Brad

I had the same issue a long time ago w/ Blast's server, it was an IP range ban and Blast had to whitelist me, you need to pm Brad and tell him about the problem, chances are you are in the middle of a range ban.

Re: Why are there only like 30 people playing BZFLAG at one

Geno I seriously doubt played a big role in the decline, it got annoying to be on the losing team at a geno map, but it wasn't ever uninstall the game annoying. Now what made me quit when I was first introduced to the game was the controls. They flat out suck if you're not used to them. Nothing is w...

Re: ChesVal Cup: winter 2014

Just a thought, but why do we always match up the ChesVal and Riker Cups so close together instead of having one Spring/Fall and the other Summer/Winter? That way it's not a 6 month wait between all the big events.

Re: First Time 0-0

IIRC, Ducati gets 0-0 matches occasionally, but its not as spectacular due to the shorter rounds and Ducati just seems to be a lower scoring map than HiX in general.

Re: something wierd on apocolypse in action

you got 1 shot only, so you had to make it count, it kicked the person it hit off the server, almost impossible to hit people with one shot at mofo though, lag act funny there compared to other servers it seems like, and the flag was impossible to find, so it was fairly balanced.

Re: Issues.

you're trying to blame the game for the actions of a server, that's like accusing the gun company for a murder cause their gun was used in the shooting. This is an issue between you and PlanetMofo that needs to be handled between you and PlanetMofo, not you and BZflag.

Re: Theme Suggestion

If the game could support music, it would only be useful on the startup screen and mainmenu imo. However, there aren't any startup screens for the game and so many better things that could be done with the mainmenu than adding sound, stuff like mouse functionality, just my .02 on the theme suggestion.

If I'm lucky enough to make it on the Riker Cup team again, I'd even be willing to do in-tank broadcasting, IDK how well it would work though, Rikers takes a ton of concentration, the broadcasting would come second.
