GAMMA issue solved Logmein did it

I had gamma problems running BZ flag. Could not get the screen bright enough. I had run a logmein session earlier today, and it turns out that Logmein installs a mirror video driver that you have to uninstall in the device manager to correct the problem.

How about flag rewards on CTF maps?

I wouldn't mind facing the onslaught of Geno in MW2 if I knew I'd be rewarded for passing or capping the flag. Maybe give those people equivalent scores to the geno whores to drive a different incentive.

Missile Wars2 - individual score for Flag work

One thing bothers me about missle wars 2 is that to optimize your personal score, its often best to disregard the flag. Is there some way to give passers and cappers points. I'd say that each of those activities is worth the weight of a Geno (point for every member of the other team). It would add a...

Slightly OT BZflag in real life

Gizmodo.com has an article on a new class of ultralight, unmanned tanks that are being developed. With no need for armor they're cheap to build and deploy.

Wonder if that means that BZ players will be drafted in the future...

Score for flag gets, passes and Caps

When playing missle war, I notice that there are those who kill, and those who play CTF (there is some overlap for some). There is no reward for playing CTF. In fact, you can fry a lot of personal points dealing with the flags. i fried a dozen points the other night trying to retrieve a *run* flag. ...

Same Problem with my box

Another Data Point. Samsung 245BM LCd fed by a 6600GT at 1900x1200 res. Core processor is an Athlon64 X2 3800+ I'll fiddle with other resolutions. Perhaps giving the machine fewer pixels to think about or turing off some of the advanced rendering options will work. I've played the game int he past o...

Tank super fast after processor upgrade

I recently upgraded my Athlon64 3000+ to an X2 3800+. When I first went into a few BZflag games, my tank was running wildly fast. It seems to have stopped now, but does anyone have any ideas as t owhy it did that in case it happens again. I'd rather not get banned for cheating.

TIA
