Re: bzfed help 2

One Man Army, Per our in-game chat, I took a look. I got bzfed to compile, had to edit the following files to include missing header files: base.cpp #include <stdlib.h> #include <string.h> box.cpp #include <string.h> link.cpp #include <stdlib.h> model.cpp #include <iostream> pyramid.cpp #include <st...

It depends on the map, of course, but when I get geno I often put the worst player on the opposing team on hunt and try not to get killed before I get to him.

After getting around to play a bit on the new missile war (finally), I've decided to revise my definition. Camping with laser is the worst. It requires absolutely no skill whatsoever except fast reflexes and hand-eye coordination. We have other games (and aspects of BZflag) for that. It's also just...

So, what's up with the in.league server, hardware problems? The problems associated with too few admins/cops is a whole lot worse on the server at If there are long-term problems, I would be willing to host the map on a university network in the USA. Ping times would be excelle...

Eh? I don't think there's any bug (that I've noticed anyway). The trick for MG distance at Badgerking is to *not* hold down the fire button, just tap it once. I think the problem, or trick is that bzflag allows only so many bullets in flight at once (server/map settings). With MG, once the Nth bulle...

I've found that different CTF maps sort of force me into certain strategies. Viper is a good example; it has a few superflags (and I'm happy whenever I get them), but I am usually am out there chasing either the other team's flag or fetching my own team's back to safety. Don't be surprised to see me...

The problems I see with the multi-mate-jump is 1. the sniper (if he sees that you jumped with the flag or gets lucky) can get a 2-fer (the guy he was aiming at and you with the flag). 2. It's really hard to get your mates to cooperate/coordinate. Besides the time and attention spent trying to organi...

Mine also has its origins in gaming as well as my initials (R.A.T.). Where I used to work (from about 1986 to 2004), we started playing Doom on the LAN at break time, lunch and after hours. I probably started by using my initials. One of the guys began referring to me as Ratto. "Good shot, Ratt...

I tried it this morning. The teleporters are interesting. I like a map with tricks/secrets to learn and/or that you can build a useful strategy with. I think the teles there could keep the newbie's head spinning for a bit.

It'd be nice to try it with at least 5 on 5 instead of by myself.
