would it be possible with a plug in to make a completely different flag? Just for a stupid example lets say a flag that allows you to shoot a normal bullet as well as a shock wave. and you call that the shock shot flag. Stupid, but an example none the less. would it be possible to spawn flags like t...

donny_baker and I played on it against each other, IT WAS SO HARD! :P it really was.

Close. f5 takes a screen shot therefore inducing lag. not really "temporarily pausing it."

RAM? mainly just the connection? if i got a 1.66 GHZ mac mini with 512 MB hardwired FI...

i also read in a forum that you can scale the map. is this true?

world
size 200
scale 1 4
end

that would be a world 200 in the x axis and 800 in the y axis.

position not pos secondly flags won't stay in the air if there isn't any thing there for it to land on. or if you don't have fb in your conf. if you want the flag to look like it is floating in the air, make it spawn on a meshbox with transparency. thirdly based on that code it should be 200 units o...

well is shooting yourself with laser an effect you were going for to reduce laser camping? you could make the top mesh drivethrough and shoottrhough. no more getting stuck or shooting yourself and it's the "correct" way.

the new chain link fence is pretty cool and a good idea. props to who did that one. however i'm pretty sure if the idea is that it is keeping us in, it's facing the wrong way. the barbed wire should be facing us and that would also fix the problem at every corner where the barbed wires detach from e...

a tank is 2.08 units high if that helps at all. i don't use wings so i don't know if the units in wings is the same as bz units after you do the bzwtools or what ever. OK so i don't know that much about wings3D :P but in bzunits the tank is 2.08 if that helps ;)

yes it does. however it is a quick way to test if it is a port forwarding problem. basically think of DMZ as a way to forward every port strait to your computer. and yes that means possible attacks too. BUT do if for a second, see if you can get a server going and shut it down. the only reason you w...

cool idea. i like the overhead view. the only thing i can see is to make sure that the walls that you have are thick (which it looks like they already are) so people can't "wall jump" or f5. that would be bad ;) if you are going to have rico and laser then at least put the adlife so that the laser d...

yes! port-forwarding. there was a post on this exact situation a while back. what you can do to test it is enable DMZ to your internal IP. if it works after that then it is a port problem. if it still doesn't work (which i bet it will work) then i have no idea. (but it will work :P)
