Learn from World of Tanks

Currently the most popular tank MMO (according to GuinnessWorldRecords.com) is World of Tanks. I got the chance to test it and must say it had notable things which could be included in BZFlag. Most notably - Game engine synchronizes all players at game start, optimizes performance for low lag even o...

Re: 2.4.0 - "OpenBroadcast" error 10013

Comodo Internet Security Firewall and AVG Free Antivirus. I have tested disabling the firewall but it makes no difference.
(It is of-course remotely possible Comodo isn't obeying me and/or conflicting. This was the case with Hedgewars recently)

Re: 2.4.0 - "OpenBroadcast" error 10013

After testing this more myself I have finally determined it to be a UAC issue. Older versions of BZFlag didn't require to be administrator... for some odd reason this one does. o_O So right click, Run As Administrator, and it works. Of course if a buffer overflow hits me now it's fair game for a vir...

Igloo Snow Fight - A 2 Team CTF (My First Map)

Hello All, This will be my first map in BZFlag, I've made tracks and stuff before for other games but never BZ. So I'm looking for advice and suggestions. It will be composed entirely in Blender using BZWTools and feature my own custom textures/UV Mapping. My initial idea is that there are two igloo...

Re: Team Voice Chat

I was just getting ready to suggest Mumble but it looks as if Strakowski beat me to it. Although I think Voice Chat should be turned off by default, it could be useful to have P2P voice chat with specific users in a game or room via integrated Mumble or a similar service. One major issue is lag as A...

Re: 2 tanks- now double the fun! check this out! :)

:D The idea sounds good, although I could see several improvements besides just the number of tanks. For example a pyramid area to spawn inside the tanks without fear of getting spawn killed -- at least until you leave the pyramided area. :tired: Perhaps some turrets would add a nice touch too.. :id...
