I thought at least some of you would like to know I solved this problem. It turns out the i810 driver mentioned above lacks support for something called XGL, which is used to run 3D apps. However, there is an alternative called AIGLX, a sort of open-source XGL. Sort of. Point is, after I installed A...

Thanks for the replies! I tried Shift+Fx: F2 was probably chat, seemed nothing useful (as no one was chatting perhaps?); F3 was server messages; F1 and F4 was the ongoing actions messages, but I think F1 just added players signing on/off and pausing to what F4 already had – dropping/picking up flag...

I turned off the firewall and tried a few small tweaks with the router, but the problem persists(some of the suggestions above make me nervous, as I dont have much of an idea about what I'm doing when it comes to routers, etc.). Strangely, I tried the game on the same computer in the Winows partitio...

Just out of curiosity, do you have a second computer in the house that you can test bzflag on? Preferably a different OS, even if it's a different flavor of Linux.
Good idea. I'll try it on my Windows partition.

The source compiled beautifully, but alas, it did not solve the problem. I'm convinced the problem must lie with the router. Of course, if anyone else has a last-ditch idea I am open to suggestions. Luckily, although the problem is frustrating, it does not render the game unplayable.

I did not know firmware even existed, thank you. However, after I updated the firmware, the problem persists. But now after a minute or two of the "symptoms", I get kicked from servers for NR. Considering the slight change after updating the firmware leads me to believe it is a problem with the rout...

Sounds like you are becoming NR very often, why this is, I can't say. Please provide more information: OS, BZ version, Internet Connection, etc. And if you have a router, if so what model/type - this is probably the most important part. :) I didn't even think about the router, I'm using Dapper Ubun...

Periodically cannot interact unless rejoin

Okay, I've really fallen in love with Bzflag, but I have a minor issue. Regardless of the server, about every 10 minutes or so, I lose the ability to pick up flags or interact with any of the other players or send messages. I can still see everybody and I still recieve all the messages (who killed w...

I tried blast's suggestion last night and it worked great. What a fun game! I got carried away and played for several hours. I did try upping the resolution to 1024x768, but half the screen freaked out and the system froze. Same result when I tried F1 to fullscreen. However, 800x600 worked fine. I w...

Okay, here's a couple screen shots. The area that looks 'wonky' appear here as simply blank areas. The area inside the box refreshes normally.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Graphics issues: super-wonky screen

I'm using Ubuntu 6.06 (dapper) on a Dell with an intel 845G 64MB video card using i810 driver. When I enter a game, only about half the screen renders correctly. The other half looks like a blank map and the top sometimes creates a series of overlapping "tiles" rather than rendering correctly. I wil...
