Re: Farewell from Bzbattleground

Wow, a lot has changed since I last checked in here. I always enjoyed your maps ahs3 - esp. That one with the tall mountains...I cant remember thec title asit's been some years.

I hope this game can recover from this stagnation and find some new life, but things are not looking too up.

Re: Global

I am honestly baffled about the popularity of this simple map. Its really nothing special, many have outdone it. -Ok I know why its so popular- No TeamKills possible at all. Noobs flock to it. They don't develop skill, they develop "HURR DUURRRR I CLICK BUTTON". It is sad really. MW was at least a m...

Re: BzFlag is dying

BZFlag is an interesting beast. Its very fun to play, if your experienced and dont ragequit in 5 minutes. Its obsolete yet continues to live on with code going back 10-15 years still running inside of it. To me, the problem is not the dated graphics. Look at Minecraft as an example. The problem is e...

It seems BZ may be going through a slight resurgence if anything. I am seeing more registered people around.

Re: NVIDIA

You should update to the latest drivers for your video card. You will see better performance. If on Windows, right click on the desktop and open Display Properties. This will tell you somewhere the type of card. (Ah yes now I remember, the resolution setting) Then go to nvidia's website, and downloa...

Re: What about your operating system?

I play on my gaming desktop. (AMD Phenom II x4 at 3.6ghz, 4GB DDR3, ATi Radeon 5770, Windows 7) Its a custom build, I hate OEM stuff most of the time.
For working, I use a Late 2007 white macbook with 2GB ram, Core 2 Duo at 2ghz and a 120GB Hard disk. Runs OS X 10.6.4

Re: NVIDIA

nVidia is the manufacturer of your video card. Updating the driver will bring more speed to your graphics in your PC.
ATi/AMD and nVidia are the major designers of video controllers. To get the new driver you will need to know the kind of nVidia video controller you have.

Re: How many fps do you get ??? (Frames Per Second)

My new shiny ATi Radeon 5770 gets up to 400FPS on some maps. My CPU (Phenom II x4 at 3.20ghz) munches through BZFlag also.

Re: Tutorial Video

I like the idea of a tutorial plugin server thing. That is indeed most ideal-and have it accessible from the main menu. I scrapped the video-it was too long, too bulky, and not really that interesting.

tank able to drive on a slope

I realize that this idea has most likely been suggested in the past. With modeled maps becoming common, with 3d terrain, it should be possible to drive up and down sloped surfaces. It is extremely unrealistic that a tank can not drive up or down a non steep incline. :P But, I also understand that ad...

Re: for all wings lovers

Not only the copied map, but I feel it is my duty to inform you that the server suffers from high lag. All players had packet-loss when I was there, and people were pretending to be sever owners when I was asking questions. Please keep in mind, packet-loss makes the game unplayable.

Re: Where did player ethics go?

"The biggest thing, is players have to know when they work as a team" Indeed, on CTF whenever people start coordinating things together, the team score and thus your score goes up. It makes the game enjoyable. I have seen FairCTF before, it should be rolled directly into BZFlag Server stock for CTF....

Observer mode keys

I cant find the keys to change the view anywhere in the BZFlag program. I have asked many people with no response.
What exactly are the control keys for observer mode?

Where did player ethics go?

I find myself asking this more and more. But, I have been forced to write about it now. I must make a point. Today, on a certain map I will not name, the fight was 10 to 4. We were being spawn-killed and camped to the point that the team could not do anything. Most of the red team left. Green player...

Tutorial Video

Well, as many have cited before, BZ can be intimidating to new players who are technically challenged. The new players tend to join the first server on the list, and then team-kill, get frustrated with the controls and leave the game forever. I think that a simple tutorial video, placed in an easy t...

Re: don't let BZFlag die

From what I see, people are put off by the "complexity" of the game. So many people appear to be confused on how to register, how to vote in polls, it is as if the entire game uses Esperanto as a language. I think that is a part of the problem. People dont read the "manual", then they suck at the ga...

Re: Newest ATi Drivers on Windows faulty for BZ

After installing and reinstalling 20 times, I got the drivers to work.
Amazing how bad the driver system for ATI or Nvidia is. Never had a problem with Intels drivers :P
