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

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

Thanks

Re: Official match with teams info

The motto is the text after peoples' names on the scoreboard. #1 Which let me guess, is client side settings. #2 Has it or could be ever been wrong? My concern would be that the join message would be providing incorrect data, but I have not been able to confirm this yet. bz_sendTextMessagef(BZ_SERV...

Anyway to hide "outdated" from list of servers?

When using the filter feature searching for servers with players or obs on them ( /op>0/p>0 ) I see that outdated is listed with 200 users on it.

The client never receives the actual world file. Only the server has all of the map file information. The client's save world feature recreates a BZW file from the binary object data that the client receives from the server, so it will not match the original map file. Additionally, it won't know ab...

1. The tutorial is for 2.x, so it would not work for 2.4.x, but some things can still be referenced from it. 2. I'm assuming it would be four and is likely hard coded. 3.

Re: Not all weapons should do 100% damage

Why would you even want that? If you want to balance or imbalance flag potency, you can do it already by adjusting server variables respective to the flags in question and keeping the idea of a single shot killing a tank.
