Re: Font woes

Renaming the config file worked. It must have gone belly-up

Thanks

Font woes

After a crash my fonts went all weird on me. They are really illegible.

Does anybody have a way to reset the font without using the menu.
This is because... I can't read the menu anymore... :|

Help! :(

Here's a suggestion: Why not make SE project all your enemies into your hud as well as on your radar. A bit like the admin in observation mode. That would be a sure advantage.

As a simpler version, could it be possible to have cyclic boudary conditions? So if you move over the border, you re-enter on the other side? Mathmatically: if x > x_max then x = 0; if x < 0 than x = x_m_max; Same for the y (and z?) directions. Mathmatistions use this trick if the space they are sim...

I've been reading up on how to make a plugin, and it looked simple enough so I might just be able to pull it off... only to figure out that the API just doesn't allow for it. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Ok. This would just have to wait until version 2.2 comes out. Sorry all. :(

If you want to see it implemented, head out to IRC to talk about how YOU want to do it, discuss options and the like, code it up, and submit a patch.

Restoring surfaces...

Would not be so hard to achieve when the whole surface comes off (Message from server: Surface XXXX destroyed). This should make the tanks drop who are on it. My question is: How do you restore them? Most servers are continuous, so when you don't restore them 99% of the uptime 99% of the destroyable...

I'm not quite sure that the server admins would like the increased amount of pings on their networks. Transfer speeds are already the limiting factor on these servers.

Related to tratior, a RC(Radar Confusion)flag would be interesting. On radar you appear the same team, not out-of-window. This is a flag that should be introduced. (imho, the "traitor" flag is far too powerful) It's one of the complementory flags that I have been missing (compare QT<->V, CL<->ST, O...

In stead of making some elaborate rules for why not keep things simple? Imo, that's where BZFlag's power lies. So let's not do the Risk style rules, but (just like CTF) make it "Bring the Flag"(BTF). For simplicity let's supose a game with red and blue. - You can capture the "unoccupied bases" by br...

In the old days of gaming, game music vs. performance was a big problem. The solution that many chose, including Screamer (they wrote an entire 3D engine in assembly language, no 3D card necessary!), was to run it off a CD. It would directly bypass the CPU. I think it wouldn't be too hard to make a ...

Two rabbit hunt extenion ideas.

My first idea is to add teams to rabbit hunt. The rabbit is alternately chosen in teams. If the rabbit is in your team, you have to defend your rabbit (hence you are a "bodyguard"). You may even have to "take one for the team". We need to find a balance such that the bodygards are not useless, but n...

Menu Music

It's something I am seriously missing in the game: A thumping soundtrack played when the menu is activated. Something to get you in the mood to kick tank. This should really be added in the next release. Not shure though what kind of style the bzanthem should be: rock(ish), house(ish) or a miltary d...

BZflag does do speed of sound and Doppler shifting of positional sounds as it mixes, using the source of the sound in the computation. So that's the reason that the SW sound sounds goes one octave up when I'm killed. Since my speed is no longer defined, it goes to a preset setting. Also the boom wa...

Explosion delay

When an explosion happens far away, in bzflag, the boom is a little less loud when it happens right besides you. As far as I can tell you can hear explosions that happen far away at the same time as you can see them boom. Yes, this is how Hollywood usually does it, but Hollywood movies usually get i...
