Re: Autoreload for a hit?

Wow, excellent idea. Although it doesn't sound like a totally game-breaking feature, it could add a subtle boost to gameplay. And since the shot counter already reloads when the shot leaves the field, why not turn it into a sort of reward? And the only exception where this could be problematic would...

Re: Wacky Wings Server?

The more I think about it, the more interesting it would be. It might not be exactly fair for the people on the ground, and the tactics are pretty much inverted from standard WG fights, and you'd have to have near-infinite WG jumps, but it would be interesting to see how it turns out. On another han...

Agreed. We really only need to know who is able to put the sm1te on us. Anything else should be relegated to a /help file.

Re: How do you pronounce callsigns?

I'm pretty sure "gnu-sense" is supposed to be a pun on "new-sense" which is supposed to be a pun on "nuisance."

Kinda like how GNOME expands itself to "GNU is Not Unix is Not Unix is Not Unix Image Manipulation Program Tool Kit Networking Object Model Environment". ;-)

Re: BZAnywhere, revisited and different direction

Here's an idea: How about you get all your friends/relatives addicted to BZ! Then, when you're over there, you can use their computer without having to boot from a CD! Either that, or just install the program on their computer. Not every BIOS has it set to boot from the CD drive first, so the LiveCD...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

Alright, here's my !@#$%ing two cents. ;-) Obviously, the language problem is up to the server owners, all 150 of them, since they're the ones running the servers. They're free to run their server however they want, implement as many or as few rules as they want, and basically get away with whatever...

Re: LAN connection

See " Creating a Server ". The only difference is that you should not make it public. It won't appear on the list server (you'll have to type in the server/port), but it will be private to everyone unless you give them the server address. Another (more complicated) option is to publicly host it, but...

Launch BZFlag, and go to Options -> GUI Settings -> Mouse Box Size , and increase it until you have fine enough mouse control to suit your taste.

Here's a map I've been rapidly developing over the past couple of days, inspired by Gamma Star and containing some elements of Missile Wars.
