Re: Python script

Hi cj, I think you might be using the wrong version. I posted 2, the first was done poorly, and the second is the one to use. However I have made a small change, now it will log the windows to a file. Use the one with THIS post. You WILL need to make a text file called "Callsign list.TXT" and place ...

Re: Python script

Hey CJ! Glad someone has had a go at it. Sorry to hear you are having trouble though. Unfortunately sound on Python is very OS dependent. I'm not sure how to do it with a Mac unfortunately, but I wou8ld suggest running a search as I'm sure there is an easy way. I ran a quick search and apparently th...

Re: What are U best at?What's your skill that makes you special?

Anyone whos played on MW2.3 with me knows what I'm best at. AGILITY. The map was made for it. Of course I never get points when using it, infact I end up at the bottom of the ladder :(, but pull of some cool moves along the way ;)

Re: Your BZFlag Hero/Master

I think players fall into 2 categories: Admin/cops and regular players. Fav regular player is chickenfarmer, he never accused me of cheating, always said Hi, and keeps askign me to go on his team, (though I think that's because he would rather get an advantage from my Aussie lag, and not be the vict...

Re: Python script

Ok here's the RSS feed version. It was a great idea, and enabled me to remove one of the files needed. No more URL file, it's now 1 URL hardcoded into the constructor of the application's class. You still need to create a file called "Callsign list.TXT" that contains the callsign you are looking for...

Re: Python script

I've tried to post the script but it says the extension pyw is not allowed (and presumably py). However since python files are just text files you can downlaod this text file and perform a simple rename of the file extension to get it working. I use .pyw which tells Python on windows to not display ...

Re: Python script

Yes. Python is like another "virtual machine" sort of like Java. Except Python apps are just plain text files with a .py extension. You just need to install Python 2.6, which is free and open source and can be found at http://www.python.org/ . They call Python executable suedo code because it resemb...

Python script

I have written a short python script that intermittantly reads some webpages of your choice to see if your chosen callsigns are on it. It's meant to be used to monitor the BZ Flag stats web pages for various chosen servers to see if anyone I know is on (reads every 5 mins or so, but you could change...

How do I withdraw from Forums?

Hi,

I was wanting to withdraw from the forums (leave for good), and deactivate my account. I am having trouble finding out how. Can anyone tell me?

Startup bug(?) version 2.0.14

Since I updated BZ to the latest version I have noticed what I think is a bug. Every time I start BZFlag I loose the port setting from the previous session (even after saving settings explicitly), and instead of the port number is "800 X 600". It doesn't seem to be saving or perhaps restoring this v...

Hi, and thanks for the replies. I'm a little confused though. If this was a forum for giving ideas for improvement, then why do people always tell ME to make the plugins? I don't know much about BZFlag's code, or FPS code in general. The best windows game I ever made was one that had sprites of lett...

Hi guys, just some ideas for you to consider or shoot down: The ability to lay a mine (probably visible so you can avoid or die by not paying attention) being notified of when an observer is looking through your eyes. Or even see where roaming observers are, if they want let the player know. use the...

Re: Killing phrase

I see your points, but people get abused anyway, and some people have rude callsigns so it's going to be no different. i just thought it could add another level of fun to the game. Besides when did being shot by someone stop being personal? But you guys are Dev here, your the ones who have to like o...

Sound travelling with jumper from jump spot

Hi All, here's one I have noticed that I think might be a bug with the game, not the map I was playing. When in Missile Wars 2.3 I jump from one of the corner jumpers I have noticed that there is a problem with the sound. As you may know you spend a lot of time in the air when you are jumping on the...

Killing phrase

Currently when you are killed you get a message along the lines of "shot by blah (some address) red team". I would like to see an option for giving the killed person a personalised message instead, such as "you have been squashed by The Hammer" or "you were caught by Mr Fisherman" (if the killers na...

Re: Missile Wars 2

From my extensive experience (I'm saying this with a laugh) in map design, mainly from Doom2, It seems to me like the node where the red's wall meets the edge of the map isn't snapped properly, causing a slight "bump" able to catch, especially since the BZ Flag makeup means that small bumps can have...

Not many peopel have commented on the getting caught in the air while jumping into the red base? Does it only happen to a few people? I use it to my advantage some times, but I'm sure it shouldn't happen.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm taking it all on board. And thanks for the advice on reports. The place where you get caught is above the red bases wall. Far left as a red tanks looks out.

I don't know if this is the best place to talk about this, but didn't know where else to bring it up.
