Re: 2 tanks- now double the fun! check this out! :)

Hum. What are you planning to do concerning cannons? It's not like you want to only be able to get to one teams tank from yours as I'm sure you've thought of.

Flags and Positions

Howdy. I run private servers at home occasionally to play with family. I save the .bzw while connected to a server with a map i like and then use bzfs (or more recently StartBZFS) to start the server, no problems. But I don't understand how flags are positioned. I want to have the same flags appear ...

Re: A thought on "unfair" capping

Good points, and here are my thoughts again :D : Unfortunately, often this plug-in is set up wrong, so if there is a one person difference, no one can CTF. I don't remember exactly what the policy at least used to be at two castles, but I think it only disables CTF for that minute of a difference if...

Re: A thought on "unfair" capping

Hmm. Honestly I find it a bit annoying that some CTF servers don't even have a policy on this, or a plugin. I highly appreciate The Two Castles for this. I think servers should make CTF rules so it's not left up to any player. Because half the time their judgment is good, half not. Actually in my ex...

Re: Start BZFS (new tool)

It has to do with where the -world line is in the config. http://my.bzflag.org/staff/jeffm/StartBZFS_0.0.5.zip has the world as the very last thing so it should override anything Ahh, so it reads the .cfg top to bottom, whatever is listed last stands. So the map settings will take dominance in this...

Re: Start BZFS (new tool)

Looking good! I'm a little confused about what takes dominance over the other, the .cfg or the .bzw? It seems to me that if the map file says "-ms 6" and I set in the program for it to be below 6, it will still be 6. But if I set it in the program to be anything about 6 then the higher number takes ...

Wow I come back the next day and there's a password and stop button. :D

Yeah rico depended on the map I was running, the check box had no effect. I looked at the .cfg file and there was no difference or +r (IIRC that is rico) whether I had the rico box checked or not.

Too bad I saw this too late, I was preparing a goodbye paragraph in my mind already :D . Guess I'll save it.

Very cool map, I love the chopper and spot light. Funny server messages but one of them I only see part of on the top of the screen because it is so long. :lol-old:

Good work!

Re: Q's. (I want A's)

Which Louman map? Just save the map and look at the code... You don't have to save the map, just type "/set _laserAdLife" while in game and it will give you the value (unless it has been changed on the server, which is unlikely IMO). you don't even need to be admin. (I'm sure you know that though :...

Re: How do I remove the RADAR???

Oh yes sorry if I said it in a confusing manner, i know about "q". I run private servers and have family get on and then I can easily disable radar for the server.

Thanks though!

Re: How do I remove the RADAR???

Yeah, that's how, funny the when I wanted to figure out how to do that I ended up looking through some ancient IRC chat log to find the answer. I actually have that command as a "quick key" or whatever it's called so I can disable easily when testing maps.
