I can only get any degree of success on pillbox. I'm too old and confused to deal with flags, jumping and ricochets so I tend to stick it out there. Apparently, I once rose to the heady heights of 73.

Of course, there's always an option to create a server that will only accept connections from a certain client. For example, you could use a challenge/response mechanism from the server when a new player wants to join. The client that knows how to respond is only the one that goes with this version ...

I'll try and find some time after Christmas to take a look at putting together a Windows client that can organise the server list according to various criteria (including ping time). However, my coding talents might need some dusting off!

I think a folder style display would be difficult to implement due to the nature of the menus and the fact that they have to be cross-platform. However, I think it would be reasonably straightforward to implement some options for the server list where you could set some preferences for the list of s...

Why you should protect the flag carrier

The re-spawn code tries to place you away from the enemy and near your team. If you're protecting the flag carrier then you have the advantage of the following: [1] There will be someone to pick up the flag if the carrier gets shot. [2] If a teammate gets shot then they're more likely to spawn near ...

This is assuming you're playing on Windows. Go and find [My Documents\My BZFlag Files\2.0\config.cfg] and open it in a text editor (notepad will do). Scroll down until you see the beginning of the lines which start with "bind". This is where you can configure the keyboard settings. By adding lines: ...

Re: The most important enhancement of all

Umm, that would not be very clever. The gaming logic changes depending on certain things meaning the tanks are not all equal even when there is no cheating involved. I would think that it's logical that the server would take into account any flags being carried at the time. In fact with only checki...

Yep I use it quite a lot, mostly to spot SW, GM or Geno. I also use Hunt when there's a Geno around :D

For pillbox, I use identify so that I can avoid players with high lag or those that seem to be very hard to hit. You know the ones where the bullet goes through and the tank keeps rolling :x
