Is there a particular reason why opening links in new window in the background (Ctrl+Shift+Click) will also open them in the same window as well? (Opera 7.6tp2, worked fine with previous board, works fine in all other boards).

Did the sun set? Not really ...

If the sun sets but not completely, it can still be seen under the farscape scenery or the wall.

See attached screenshots.

Depth buffer is on.

A vampire flag could work as a thief flag+kill (steals flag and kills opponent) or a thief+shield. The vampire would die not only if he gets hit by laser (no shield effect: player simply blows up), but also if he sees a laser shot (is this codable?), in which case he'd just lose the vampire flag.

Yes, it needs some thoughts. IMO you should be immune to the SW of the Linked tank.

I don't see why collisions should be a problem. If the Link cannot happen, the tanks will explode (or not Link). If the tanks are linked already, then they won't be able to get under low places (just like now there are maps with places that can only be reached by burrowed tanks. Scorch: I think you ...

Flag Ideas: TankLink and Reverse TankLink

This is a very stupid idea but with some interesting aspects. These flags allows tanks to "link" to each other. Linked tanks appear one on top of the others, attached by the turret. They will be the "base" tank and the "air" tank. Either tank can break the link whenever they want, by "dropping": eve...

Like workaphobia, I think that not seeing where the tank is heading can be an important part in the strategy, in some cases. It should stay this way.

LOL.

What does a Zoned shot hit? Other Zoned tanks, or anything, like a Superbul...

I've been thinking about 2. rather frequently. The only thing I could come up with was awarding the flag-carrier with the "deaths" of all the enemies ... this would be like him making a one-time effective use of Genocide. Sure, it doesn't reward assists, but then assists aren't rewarded even in othe...

toaster, not always the latest nVidia is the best; you can have a look at www.laptopvideo2go.com for more info and many drivers. This is true for the laptops, but I think it might help for the desktops too. Patlabor: what about the "no servers/wrong version" problem? Is 1.11.16 really 1.11.16? Why d...

Duh. I have better luck :)

Try moving your My BZFlag Files folder to a My old BZFlag Files folder, so that on launch bzflag doesn't find any old config file. This might reset it.

Also, what video card and driver version do you have?

Is there some more recent public version? When I try using .16 it finds no servers and if I try to connect to the last server I used for 1.11.16, it complains incompatible version (BZFS0006). BTW, this 1.11.16 build reports on GUI as 1.11.15 and uses the 0005 server version ... do I need to re-downl...

Learner: tried that, didn't work.
OTOH, I'm noticing no servers found in 1.10 too now. If I know the server name, it goes in correctly, but lists no servers ...
