Re: New Windows Laptop

Have you verified that you have the latest graphics drivers? If it's hybrid graphics, you might also have control over which GPU specific software runs on.

Re: Server Filtering (version 2)

ServerAccess.txt is already a niche feature that I'm sure very few people even know exists. You're welcome to add that feature to your client though, or run the server list through a local web script that filters out servers you don't want (the latter is really quite easy, the former is probably fai...

Re: Possibility of BZFlag on a console

I don't understand why people think an open-source project can just make a console port of the game. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-07-30-id-xbox-dev-reveals-costs-of-launching-xbox-one-game The total cost of launching the title on Xbox One was around $5143 (just over £3k), with the amount ...

Re: MyPosition

Zehra, you're missing the point. In 2.5, bypassing the API for the two or so things in bzToolkit won't be necessary, so it would work on Windows. So your contribution could be upgrading bzToolkit and (possibly that plugin) to work on 2.5's API. And 2.6 isn't really that far off. I'd say we're about ...

Re: hard linking banfile for multi-server bans?

You don't even need to hard link. You can use symlinks to a shared file. I believe when you ban/unban someone it reloads the banlist from disk prior to that. Additionally, the serverControl plugin can be used to automatically reload the ban file when the file changes, so a ban on one server will qui...

Re: plugin troubleshooting - can't load?

For what it's worth, I didn't seem to have a problem loading the plugins with the 2.4.8 bzfs that Debian 9 ships. Regardless, I don't suggest using the packaged server anyway because it's generally going to be outdated and it automatically runs a copy of bzfs.

This is roughly what I use for my servers. I start with taking away all rights and then adding back specific rights. I also include the rights of other groups by prefixing another group name with an asterisk. Though now that I'm looking at it, I wonder if including another group calls "-ALL" again. ...

Re: NoSelfCaptures

There is no need to get the capping player's team because it's already part of the event data, stored as teamCapping.

capData->allow = (capData->teamCapping != capData->teamCapped);

(That will set the 'allow' value to the boolean result of the inequality comparison of teamCapping and teamCapped)

Re: MoFo server thinks I'm using a VPN

Looking at the list server logs, the couple times I saw you have issues this month was when your client didn't send a token at all, meaning you weren't getting authenticated correctly (or at all).

I also noticed I had messed up the source archives slightly, so I have re-posted those. The only difference was that the originals had outdated title.png/title.psd and BZFlag.nsi (the Windows NSIS installer script) files showing version 2.4.13.

Re: f5kicker 1.1

Honestly not even sure this one does anything anymore. The screenshot code was redone to use a thread years ago so it wouldn't cause the issue with the tank passing through solid objects. I'm thinking we also don't trigger a pause when we screenshot anymore.

Re: timed match procedure

You don't need the --enable-shared option as that's the default. Also, TimeLimit is an included plugin, so you don't need to pass that one to --enable-custom-plugins. You only pass extra plugins to --enable-custom-plugins. The bundled ones are always built.
