No sound if from source code

I downloaded and Compiled the source code but one issue. No sound at all.

At Settings -> Audio Settings, it reports back for sound volume Unavailable.

Any ideas?

Also please tell me if you need the output from the commands that is/are used to make from source code.

Please and thank you.

FYI, trpted, there are keys to turn off the display of flags on radar (h) and in the 3D view (j). You don't have to remove them from the map.
While that is true, for me it was easier for testing reasons to remove/disable them vs pressing keys within bzflag.

I see exactly what you mean on my Windows 10 computer. :( Step 1 of 2. #1 With-in Windows 10, find BZFlag. #2 In it, select the bzfs (server) Manual pages HTML . #3 Read it. Stated reason(s) include but not limited to: #1 because bzfs, is the exact server #2 and will gives to you a lot more options/...

Re: [Top Secret: Classified] CTF/FFA

While we see the map and can download it our selves, it help that you describe the map so that people know more info about it before downloading it.

Like for example: It is a map of the CIA building.

However when after I pressed O: /lagstats worked

Re: servers list publicaton

Based upon your post(s) and the post of others (like tainn's last post in this thread) I suspect it issue is with the public key. It is a good idea to request a new key for that new host.

Regardless if that does or does not solve the issue, please post.

Thank you
