Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

My only thing would be that movement box. Being in the bottom right will take getting used to, but feels bad when I dont know where my mouse is cause I cant see it.

Re: Feedback on a game design document

In the meantime as I (and others will) review your file, I have to ask.

This is part of your future plans for BZFlag, should work?

OR a BZFlag inspired game under development?

Thank you

Mottos are shown by default when the scoreboard is shown. You can adjust the maximum display length of mottos in the options.

How long should I make the Motto shown in options? Currently set to 0 (lowest possible setting).

Thanks
