Re: Server List question - different version of bzflag

Sorry, I don't understand the complaint then. Strayer's BZStats site does list the servers for all versions of BZFlag. (It just incorrectly lists 2.5 servers as 2.4.x)

Re: Server List question - different version of bzflag

What would be the point in showing servers that you cannot connect to?

Re: question on different Downloads

Because we have a Flatpak (which isn't linked on our current site but will be on our new site).

Re: I got bored

I'd assume it would use the same texture index, just for a different color. Regardless, it's not a possible feature in 2.4.x.

Re: Wiki about BZAuthd

It's not clear what you're pointing out as issues. We're not going to be using a BZAuthd and will continue to use web-based tech. And since 2.4.4 we've been using HTTPS communication to the list server and forums.

Re: stagedSceneGenerator

It's not going to be any kind of automatic system. I just mean that I'll be able to set up various scenarios and scenes and then take screenshots (mainly for some of the page banners). For instance, I can mess around with different settings to change the visual look while scene the same. bzfi0014.pn...

stagedSceneGenerator

I've been working on a plugin that would help with creating screenshots for the BZFlag website redesign. This plugin allows setting up a stage of tanks and shots at fixed locations. So, for example, I can get something like this: by_our_powers_combined_thumb.png by_our_powers_combined.png A configur...

Re: Quick keys issue

I think you could literally just change AltKey to ShiftKey in the highlighted code I linked to in playing.cxx.

Re: Quick keys issue

Yes, those seem to be hard coded. You can change the behavior if you'd be okay with modifying the code and compiling. The actual handling of quick keys is in the doKeyPlaying function in playing.cxx and the menu text is defined in QuickKeysMenu.cxx . A simple change might just be changing the code t...

Re: New Release: 2.4.16 "Reduce, Reuse, Replay"

To be fair, there's really not much of a difference between 2.4.14 and 2.4.16, especially if you're just running the client. The majority of the changes only apply to the server.

Re: No sound on Windows 10

I found a temporary workaround. If you start the game windowed (using the windowed shortcut in the start menu, for instance) then the sound works. You can then switch it to fullscreen with the F1 key.

Re: Missing some config into

It's a binary file, not a text file, so it isn't something you'd want to open with a text editor. I don't know the details of how it works, but it's not designed to be hand-edited if that's what you're after.

Re: Missing some config into

The last server is stored in your config. The favorites are stored in one of the cache files, if I recall correctly, maybe BZFS0221_1-Servers.bzs.
