Re: BZFlag IRC ~bzfrag command

It's just a bot that ~larts people? That's correct. It's pretty much exclusively for fun. I do, however, have an entirely separate system I've been working on that can send notifications to IRC channels when events happen on a BZFlag server. Once I get it together as its own plugin, I'll post a dow...

BZFlag IRC ~bzfrag command

I'm working on adding a "~bzfrag" command to my IRC bot. I've pulled some responses for the command from ibot, and added a few of my own (and some that others contributed). Does anyone have any suggestions for more responses? I'm ok with them being specific to a particular map or league. For those o...

I'm sure this has been asked before, but why, exactly, does the trunk protocol change so often?

Re: Overlord back up...again

And the server is running on a VPS. I've heard plenty of people (well, actually, one in particular, and I think you know who you are, but I'm not saying nuthin) say that a VPS would lag at least 500ms. I think I just cleanly proved these people wrong.

Re: Overlord back up...again

Adding to #2, most people know how conservative I am. I'm holding the server to that same standard. I won't kick you if you didn't know that lang wasn't allowed, but if you continue to use lang, then I will ban.

Re: Poll Ban Reason

1. Add this feature to 2.99.x and trust the ones who make the polls Why trust them? I don't trust anyone's reason for a poll, even when they say it in a normal chat message. The main reason I can see for using a reason in a poll is so that people don't have to ask "why". If someone starts a pollban...

Re: Poll Ban Reason

In fact, I would be worried that people might start trying to rush bans through by putting 'cheating' or similar for the reason. People would be unreasonably swayed to vote yes, even if the banee did nothing wrong, and it was just another player being an arsehole and starting a poll for no reason. ...

Re: Poll Ban Reason

I think this is an excellent idea. I get so tired of having to explain to people why I'm pollbanning someone. And then invariably, someone opposes it before I can say a reason because "they didn't know the reason when I started the poll".

That would be the problem. I'm building against BZFlag version 3.0, and if I remember correctly a lot has changed in the API. I'll try building for 2.0.

Now I'm getting different errors, that look like they are syntax errors within the files. I changed the cpppath and libpath to point to where I have bzfsAPI.h, v8.h, and v8.lib, but it didn't help. I also changed jsbzflag.so to jsbzflag.dll. Here's a portion (roughly one-third) of the errors that ar...

I think it's a great map overall, and yes, it will be playable. Another suggestion for sometime in the future would be to put a bunch of WWs that branch out from the team base that shoot with genocide when the flag is capped, so you're going to have one mad team if you're sitting on there! :) This p...

Compiling BZFlag in MS VC++ creates nonfunctional large file

I am using Microsoft Visual C++ to compile BZFLag. After a number of adjustments, I got it to compile without errors, using the Debug target. I disable libcurl because it was giving me multiple errors, and when I disable it every other project compiles OK. I then get a resulting bzflag.exe executabl...

In this case, the computer won't be connected to the internet. It will be 3 people using laptops connected together via an Ethernet hub. But anyway, i checked and it doesn't appear to use the cache if it's not the original server, but thanks anyway

Thanks. The cache thing works great. I'm going to write a program that converts the URLs in a world to point to the cache. I'll post it here once I get it done incase anyone else would find it useful.

Problem when saving world, textures not downloaded

I read somewhere that there are supposed to be 2 folders under your My BZFlag files folder after you save a world with textures, worlds and textures. I have saved around 15 worlds, most of which have textures, but the textures are not getting saved. I searched my entire hard disk without any results...
