Re: How prevelant are subtle cheats?

No player should be 100% at avoiding STs after several years of encounters. I do not see/hear these players shooting into every blind corner.

How prevelant are subtle cheats?

I often play on some of the more popular free-style servers. Without naming names, there are a handful of players I sometimes encounter, who have the following properties. 1 They seem to be really good. 2 There is a big gap between their scores and everyone else. 3 If you have ST, it is impossible t...

Oh yeah, and another thing...

The newbs will catch on a *lot* quicker if the non-bunnies are some color other than black (which means "shoot me" in FFA). How about blue, red, purple or green?

The bunny game....

The bunny game is quite fun. Having played it a few days, I offer the following observations. The "bunny" status is generally assigned to the highest scorer who is alive, and typically rotates among the top 2 or 3 scorers. This causes a few basic effects: 1. There is a kind of Reaganomics ...

I've disabled the feature on my local copy (as well as significantly reducing the amount of verbage to the panel).

A workaround & fix

This is a cheesy fix because it doesn't actually restore your original gamma values. However, if you're like most people, you probably have a simple 1.0 gamma ramp, and this fix will make things look relatively normal. The problem is caused by the fact that windows BZ reads the gamma ramp at the beg...

On a related note, I think I've found a work-around for the windows bug in which your screen gramma gets all screwed up when you crash... (its related to the need for the brightness to be all the way to the right in window...).

As a lazy programmer, I generally use 'C' to mean 'C/C++'.

Clearly we're playing #12.

The 12 Games of BzFlag I've often noticed, when disagreements occur on the battlefield, that the participants are each playing a different game. Which game are you playing? 1. BzFlag is a game that involves tanks of different teams. The object is to kill as many of the enemy tanks as you can, while ...
