Re: Our IRC chat channels have moved from Freenode to Libera.Chat

Note that the old freenode servers have been shut down, with the exception of at least one. However, the normal services (nickserv, chanserv, etc) are no longer running, and the server is misconfigured to allow rogue users to take their place. So someone is using the nickserv name with the intent of...

Re: Launch and cursor issues

If you run Gnome on Xorg instead of Wayland the cursor shows up. Not ideal, but it's at least a workaround for now. From the computer's login screen, click on your user name, and then in the bottom right click on the gear and pick Gnome on Xorg. I didn't see the launch problem here. I'm not sure whi...

It is supposed to always show up. Is it not normal for it to be hidden.

Our IRC chat channels have moved from Freenode to Libera.Chat

We have had chat rooms on the Freenode IRC network since at least early 2002. On May 19th, 2021, due to a disagreement/dispute regarding management of the network, about 20 to 30 Freenode volunteer staff members resigned. Some of them went on to create a new IRC network called Libera.Chat. Since the...

You can also leave Jump While Typing turned on and use F2 as the completion key.

Re: player ID in score question

My recommendation is to not use it for kicks/bans as it's easy to kick/ban the wrong person.

Re: player ID in score question

It can be used when issuing bans or kicks, but because the numbers get reused if a player leaves and someone else joins (or simply because they're easy to type wrong), it can lead to kicking/banning the wrong player. It is tied to having either the PLAYERLIST permission or having the admin status (t...

Flatpak does not use dnf or RPMs. It a separate software distribution method that works the same across distributions.

Re: Global login fails and no server list

Try this from a terminal (since we use libcurl to talk to the server list):

Code: Select all

curl https://my.bzflag.org/db/?action=LIST
If that also works, make sure the game is closed and then try renaming your configuration directory and then running the game again:

Code: Select all

mv ~/.bzf ~/.bzf.bak

Re: Global login fails and no server list

If you're not even getting a server list, then your client is having trouble communicating with our main server. Try accessing the server list in a browser to see if that also fails or is unreliable. https://my.bzflag.org/db/?action=LIST

Re: Bots...???

It could be done, but not without some programming. One option would be to write a bzfs plugin that controls the automatic team selection. Another option would be modifying the client to adjust what team it joins the bots to.

Re: Stutter/Jutter

From the second link:
I was able to fix all of my issues by switching to PCI-E Gen 3 inside my BIOS. If anyone else is or has experienced any of these issues try switching to Gen 3.
Worth trying.
