OpenGL driver says: Radeon 9600 I just noticed that I also get a "Could not set Gamma: Gamma correction not supported on this visual." when I exit the game, which I never had before. Disabling evergy saver doesn't help either. Still extremely low framerates... I don't understand why I should have to...

very, very slow!

I'm currently running Ubuntu Feisty until I get E17 installed in Gentoo. I'm using the fglrx drivers and I get horrible framerates in BZFlag (~15-20 fps) In case it means anything, here is glxgears, fglrxinfo, fgl_glxgears, and glxinfo $ glxgears -display :0.0 4999 frames in 5.0 seconds = 999.631 FP...

That sounds good. Sometimes I get killed the instant I hit 'i', so that would be a big improvement. Any idea on a time-line? (2.2?)

If you notice that a GM has been fired at you, and aren't right next to a long wall parallel to the shooter, GM is quite simple to dodge. Move behind a structure or move perpendicular to the shot and you're safe. One you get the strategy down, you'll find GMs aren't that powerful after all. Lasers o...

Making my client invincible to all shots is fun ... but for some reason that's not allowed. It wouldn't be fun for long... If you're invincible, there's no challenge. No challenge = no fun Swearing at the kiddies on the family friendly server can be fun ... again, people seem to frown upon that. Th...

Met is correct, and the default setting for that is 30 FPS. .Zero showed you how to change the value, but you still need to enable energy saver. Thought that was deault. In that case, /localset saveEnergy 1 or check save energy in the options menu Good luck curing the motion sickness. I've never ha...

Alright! I found a better solution.
In MainWindow.cxx, I simply commented out the warpMouse() function and recompiled. Now my mouse stays where I want it to and I didn't have to mess with another program to do it for me :D

I like it. It's a pretty fun map. I really like being able to jump in the trees with stealth or cloak and wait for the other team to come for the flag :) The only possible suggestion I might have is (if possible) to make the bullets that come out of the axis bunkers go farther out. I take it the sho...

Eh can we safely write this idea off as "Rejected" in the wiki then (Just checking)? Whomever has that power, go ahead (or delete it outright) You can not blame death on anything but the lack of skill in comparison to the other player, assuming you both have no (or the same) superflags. 2+ tanks vs...

On the other hand, I would like to see a Wings fighting server where you can fly and have another flag at the same time. I think that's what the OP meant. Now that would be fun! Not sure how that would work though, since lots of Wings fights keep going up and up and up and flags have to be picked u...

Plus, don't forget that most of the time when you get killed after a jump, it's in the air because the other tank jumped or before you touch the ground. You know what, I never thought of that before and now that I do, I see that you're right! Even without having the other tank jump, you're probably...

your earthquake idea is ALSO a superflag, so that argument is pointless on this topic. you pick where you jump more carefully, it's called "skill". I guess I misunderstand what a superflag is then. I thought superflag meant all those really powerful flags: laser, shockwave, rocket, etc. I guess a s...

sounds more like you just hate getting killed on jumping, but like to play the long shot game, that is the risk of jumping. I just believe that jumping is currently a little lopsided to the point where jump=death much too often. I do do the same thing that I mentioned others do, but everytime I thi...

this seems way to powerful to just be able to kill people without warning Well, it would only happen on landings. There's several ways I can think of to make it so that you do have a warning. You could have a SW-like marker that dissipates rapidly. You could have a visible shockwave similar to the ...

Yes, combos combine more strengths than weaknesses, so if combo flags were to exist, it would be far too hard to kill them. Or if you just look at the wiki, it says in bold that new flags must have limited power and require new skills. Not pure combos but limited ones. As in one example someone men...

We've established that it's already very similar to (or rather a combination of) both SR and SW. Souping up an existing flag is fine, but no mixing flags to make new ones. I like the idea, but I vote no. Fair enough. I notice that a lot of combo type flags are not allowed. Is there a reason for tha...
