That contains the raw man file, not the rendered HTML version that bzfman.cgi perl script generated.

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.

Yeah, I have confirmed this is an issue on Windows 10 (even without VB-Audio Virtual Cable). I will look into it further. I added an issue on GitHub to track this: https://github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag/issues/180

I just rebuilt and re-uploaded the Windows installer as I realized I had used an older copy of the dependencies.

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.

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: 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.
