JFR means what features are enabled: J (if colored) means that you can jump F (if colored) means that there are Super Flags (the white power-up flags) R (if colored) means Rebound is on (bullets will bounce off the walls) Colored stars...perhaps the team colors? Not real sure what you mean, but if y...

Shockwave is a sphere, not a dome - important when someone jumps over you with it. ;p
Also, for flags, you may want to put the abbreviations (SW), I know those confused me as a n00b.

The only setting I can find is this one:
#set laserTexture laser
and is the # a comment, or something else?
Either way, it would require messing with those files that I mentioned.

Even if you're 100% sure it's with settings, try this (this is what he was saying) - it won't mess up anything if this isn't the problem: 1. Go to your BZFlag directory (Probably C:\Program Files\BZFlag2.0.8 ) Assuming you are using Windows, go Start->Run and type "C:\Program Files\BZFlag2.0.8" 2. O...

The other day I was playing scrabble, and there was a q with three blank spaces after it, the last being a triple word score. I had "UIZ", and then the person right before me put "QUID".

Sweet, I'm glad to hear all this - I love blender, and that's how I was going to make maps anyway. @CabbageMan: If BZFlag was a game about making environments, it would be like RCT.

Just downloaded it, works great - some small issues, but I like it. Perhaps in the distant future, allow the user to choose from several user-defined flag sets from a dropdown (like one would be -view stacked -geometry 1200x1600, another -view normal, etc)

Personally, if I get kicked for teamkilling > x% (happened once so far), it's just mistakes - the guy getting in my way, being too close, forgetting what color I am, I just figure my bad and get back on. Banning for TK, I agree - bad idea to do it automatically.

If I were making maps...I'd probably use notepad++ ('cause I'm a control freak and perfectionist when it comes to this kind of stuff, and a math geek more than artist), and Blender3D (because it rocks). But then again, I'm not an artist, so making maps might not be a good idea. ;)

Well, I'm short for my age, and as a freshman, I was 4'10". For one of my friends, that was close enough to 5'0" to call me cinco de nada (what's supposed to be five foot nothing in Spanish).
