Re: Bzflag tk bug

I'm not entirely sure but it looks like when you pause it calls the function to select a new rabbit, but it calls it with no parameter (i.e. no one killed the rabbit). This looks like it is usually called when a player leaves the game. When that happens the paused player does fully change teams back...

Re: UPD/UDP??

If you got the message: Your end is not using UDP, turn on udp upgrade your client http://BZFlag.org/ or Try another server, Bye! It means that when you fired a shot it was sent with a TCP/IP packet and the server requires a UDP/IP packet. This is a sign of an older client. Not what that means in la...

Re: How do I compile BZFlag in Visual Studio 2008?

Banning based on the string returned from /clientquery is ridiculous!!! Having the knowledge of compiling (and programming) even on a windows platform DOES NOT constitute a cheater. I compile a windows client. Am I a cheater? JeffM compiles windows clients, is he a cheater? I could go on and on wit...

Re: BZFlag on iPhone and iPod Touch

I can't imagine that it would be hard to program it ( assuming you are an experienced IPhone programmer). The hard part is already done -- Algorthms, graphics, and network interface. Just needs to be ported, with some Iphone specific implementations. I guess the hardest part is finding time to imple...

Re: Callsign Choosing

Fish Pigeon is pretty good. I think the best is being Unique. I've been using "Branton" for a very long time... Very Very long time... Well lets just say since I got my first 80286... I was a young brat back then, so perhaps that was the inspiration :) Truthfully I don't remember how I came up with ...

Re: How do I compile BZFlag in Visual Studio 2008?

I've managed to compile BZ with VC++ 2008 express (aka free) edition. I had to get Libcurl to compile first (Google that one, it's was pretty easy). I also had to download the MS DirectX SDK to get a few header files. I had to make some minor modifications to some of the source (such as changing #in...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

I found the filterEvent which would makes it very easy to auto kick/ban. I got it mostly code (except for a config file reading etc) in less than an hour and this is the first ever plugin I've made. But joevano you've got a good point too. The filterEvent depends upon the BZFS filter system which is...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

I really like the "auto-kick/ban" idea on the bad language. Now I've never made a server side plugin so I can't say with any authority, but couldn't that be accomplished via a plugin? Maybe one of the plugin masters could give inputs. I'll gladly work on it if is possible. I've been wanting to get i...

Also remember if you are using guided missile it doesn't work up close. It will go right through someone sitting just a few units in front of you.

Re: Max Polygons?

Thanks for the great replies. I noticed my FPS dropped to around 15 when looking at my mesh with the most faces. (On a vista laptop with a silly Intel gfx card). I'll look at the Drawinfo & LOD and see what I can do.

Thanks!

Max Polygons?

Ok, so I am making a map, a couple of you have seen it, and suggested I needed more objects in the mid section so I’ve rendered up a few meshes and I’m beginning to wonder, how many faces of a mesh is to many? And how many total polygons/faces for the map is to many and likely to cause performance i...

Re: Has anyone made a Cave?

I've made some Meshs that are similar to small caves. I use the latest freeware Wings 3d, and ModelTool. It seems that you could make a cave using some cylinders arrange them, then combine them, drop a few edges (or intrude them) and you've for a cave system. I'm sure there are other ways, but Wings...

Re: How can I fix my lag?

From my knowledge there are two reasons for lag: 1) bad internet connection (i.e. Dialup) or, 2) Congested internet connection. The first is probably the easiest to fix. Get a new internet connection with a different provider. The second can be caused from activity on your own connection, or in some...

Multiple Server List entries

Hi all... I have been playing around with a server for the first time since version 1.17 and have a question. Question: I notice my server is listed twice in the server listing. Once by it's private local IP address (with no title), and once by the domain name (with title): example: 192.168.1.100 my...
