Re: Keyboard/Mouse Not Working Mint 21

The flatpak version is sandboxed and stores the .bzf directory at $HOME/.var/app/org.bzflag.BZFlag/.bzf/

Re: Keyboard/Mouse Not Working Mint 21

Use our snapcraft or flatpak version of the game instead, or compile from source. The version of SDL2 in the latest Ubuntu (and therefore Mint) breaks BZFlag versions older than 2.4.24. There is a bug report for Ubuntu, but it hasn't seen any activity since August 10th. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ub...

Re: BZ Flag stopped working

Could you explain a bit more about how it glitched out? Did you have to forcefully close the game?

Re: BZ Flag stopped working

I guess my other questions would be:
What operating system are you using?
Which version of BZFlag are you running?

Re: BZ Flag stopped working

Weird, it seems to be a 7334 byte file that contains just null bytes (so, not empty, but unprintable characters). Just deleting the config file was enough to fix it. Was there anything about the last time you played that might have been different than normal? A crash? Running multiple clients at onc...

Re: BZ Flag stopped working

Could you check the contents of your configuration file by using a text editor (such as Notepad on Windows)? If it contains a bunch of readable text, could you remove the password line and send me a copy via a private message ? Otherwise, if it's just blank or otherwise unreadable, could you also se...

Re: Check if valid spawn point

Well that's not how the API works. Another suggestion would be to define a custom map object that defines a valid spawn point and then pick one of those locations. Then the map would have a list of known good locations coded into it.

Re: Check if valid spawn point

Use the bz_getStandardSpawn function to get a valid spawn location for a player somewhere in the world, or bz_getSpawnPointWithin to get a valid spawn location within a custom zone object.

Re: Force a spawn

While the design of the game allows for the server to tell a player to spawn, I don't believe the bzfs API exposes a way to do that.

Re: Removing certain type of flag not working

The -f option only affects randomized flag generation (which is controlled with the -s or +s option). The +f option adds a flag even if -f matches a flag. If your goal is to always have 150 flags at random, except for the OO flag, then just leave the "+f good" out of your configuration. If...

Re: Plugin include custom header file

bztoolkit is archived and was last updated in 2017. It also bypasses the API, which may be why you're having problems. The reason we have an API is to expose a (somewhat) stable interface. When you bypass the API, there's almost a guarantee we'll break something on you eventually.

Re: Cannot see servers. Cannot join servers. Cannot even chat via IRC.

Dunno. It all worked fine for me when I built 2.4.24 on Devuan 4.0, 3.1, and 3.1 w/ curl from backports. Maybe just use our flatpak version of the game for now.

Re: Cannot see servers. Cannot join servers. Cannot even chat via IRC.

Hmm, are you saying the system is partially upgraded to 4.0? I do notice that curl in Devuan 3.1 is only 7.64.0, but you have 7.74.0 which is from Devuan 4.0. That partial upgrade is likely the source of your problems.

Re: Cannot see servers. Cannot join servers. Cannot even chat via IRC.

I tried with Devuan 4.0 (with the default Xfce environment) and compiled 2.4.24 from a git clone. It worked fine with all three of the libcurl4-*-dev packages. Try running the game client with debug level 4. That will write out detailed information about the curl connections being made. Just the MOT...

Re: my account is not accepted but i am registered

See if it works now. I noticed there was some code in our central server that restricted which symbols were allowed in a password, so that might have been the issue.

Re: Shot location

We'll likely fix the issue that allows a plugin to bypass the API in a future release. We just need to work out how GCC's visibility support works.

It's also no longer possible to pick a specific shot ID when firing a world weapon.

Re: Shot location

The server doesn't really know where the shots are at, so you would have to calculate that yourself in the plugin, though I can't recall if PZ shots ignore teleporters. Another thing you can't do is override the shot the client fires, so theirs would still be a normal shot that might ricochet.

Re: HOWTO compile bzflag from github source on XUbuntu 22.04

I don't know if Ubuntu really cares about Flatpak since they are pushing Snaps. We (the dev team) should look into why the snap is failing since that's something we maintain.
