Re: Windows 7 BZFlag support

Windows XP was dropped because it did not support modern SSL/TLS ciphers (at least, without resorting to using OpenSSL). Windows Vista and up support the ciphers that we are using. I don't have any plans to desupport Windows 7, and the game likely still works in Vista as well.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

That likely refers to what the Windows drivers support. On Linux, you might get support of a slightly higher version of OpenGL, though I suppose Mesa might fill in some of the gaps with software emulation. Going forward, though, that chipset is going to be a problem even for BZFlag. We're aiming for...

Ah, okay, didn't realize it wasn't used for systemd. I rarely use the packaged versions of BZFlag.

Re: Starting server - Failed (exit = 2)

I think there's a file in /etc/default for that, maybe called 'bzflag-server'. It would have some variable you could populate with configuration options.

Or SDL1 setting up the window badly. Generally you can start it windowed, via 'bzflag -window 640x480'. Then you could try hitting the F1 key to toggle to fullscreen, or if that fails, you could try setting a resolution in the Options > Display Settings > Change Video Format menu. If that all still ...

Re: Starting server - Failed (exit = 2)

If you use the packages from Debian and Debian-based distros, I believe it runs a server automatically via systemd (and possibly via older init scripts if you're not using systemd). You'll want to either disable the systemd unit or make use if it to run the server.

Re: Need help with Internet connection

Press the 't' key and wait a second, and you should see a small "FPS: " counter on the screen.

I have a server list that sorts by servers closer to you (based on GeoIP, so not super accurate but close enough in most cases): https://www.bzexcess.com/geolist/

This would not be possible in the current protocol. We only get the shot initial position, but are not able to get it's end position, much less getting it's position at any point in time. If we are able to get enough shot data and player positioning information, it can either be implemented within ...

Re: Auto -re-/set defaults on first player join

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure that BZDB values set at startup are set to be the default value. So a '/reset *', for instance, will reset all settings back to what the server config or world had defined.

Re: Auto -re-/set defaults on first player join

It would probably be the ResetServerAlwaysFile actually, since that would restart the server every time it emptied. ResetServerOnceFile is more when you want to restart a server for maintenance (such as upgrading to a new bzfs binary) after it has emptied.

Re: Access-Control-Allow-Origin

I don't have the energy at the moment to investigate this, and I'm not going to blindly enable such a feature. This is something you can easily pull from your backend, optionally caching it in your backend.

The site is not intended to be consumed directly by browsers. I'm not familiar enough with the edge cases and security implications of that header given that we do use my.bzflag.org for authentication purposes.

Re: Callsign infos on in-game dialog pop-up

The league is not directly affiliated with the BZFlag project.

Having additional information or things like an in-game avatar would be neat, but we'd have to standardize on some dimensions for the avatars and have some sort of moderation system in place.

Re: Discord Plug-in

The bzfs API itself provides "URL jobs" which let you make HTTP requests. Use that instead of directly linking your plugin to libcurl. I have an example of that in an old plugin I wrote. There's also other examples on some Github repos. https://bitbucket.org/blast007/bz_playerdb_plugin/src/default/p...
