Kaspersky antivirus' port monitoring/bzflag clash together

I have just confirmed that when Kaspersky is set to monitor the port that bzflag connects to, the game crashes as soon as I shoot with the error "udp is not enabled. Please enable UDP." This ONLY happens when the port that the game is using is being monitored. bzflag 2.0.10 Windows Vista Ultimate Ka...

sky is flashing different colors, the ground is not affected

When I play the sky will sometimes flash like a strobe light different colors *red/purple/yellow/green and it makes playing to game so distracting it's almost impossible to play. The ground and anything below the "horizon" is fine. I'm running windows Vista and have an ATI X800XL AGP card and Direct...

Garbled screen with Catalyst A.I. enabled

I have a Radeon X800XL with the latest drivers 7.6 installed on Vista Ultimate. I notice that when I have the Catalyst A.I. on "advanced" the menu of Bzflag is all garbled and I can't read it. I have to leave A.I. on standard. A while ago I would also have to leave Antialiasing and antistrophic filt...

Float flag/anti-rust flag

Not sure if this has ever been considered but I always thought a float flag would be nice. To able able to "walk on water" without sinking is good for servers that use water extensively throughout the map. And what about that rusting problem? Tanks rust as soon as they touch water. (Is it water of s...

Error connecting to server, why does this happen????

Sometimes when I'm shot I'll press "i" to respawn but nothing will happen, I can't spawn again. I can leave the game and join another one but I can't get back into the previous map. I will search for servers and see that there's still plenty of people playing in the server that I'm trying to get int...

Fix the very annoying brightness problem

I have a Radeon X800XL and EVERY TIME I load the game I have to adjust the brightness, it's always too low and its so annoying. I have the latest ATI Catalyst drivers. But the game does not "remember" the brightness and always resets. Even when I have the option to save settings on close. Bzflag 2.0.8

Game settings won't save

I have BZflag installed on my virtual network drive Z: which I can access from any of the university computers. Being that BZflag is installed on the virtual drive, whenever I'm at one of these public computers sometimes I want to play Bzflag. But everytime I load the game off the virtual drive I ha...

But bzflag is open source. So go ahead and implement it.

I can't just go and start changing the source code, I wouldn't even know where to begin, I'm not into programming.

An new way to move via mouse, makes mouse box obsolete.

Ok this might sound stupid because it's hard to explain. But, instead of just having the mouse in a stationary position within the mouse box to control speed and direction, it would be neat if you could scroll the mouse upward to gain speed. Like if you moved the mouse to the top of the mouse box, l...

Yes, I was aware of what anisotropic filtering was. I mentioned it just because anisotropic and antialiasing filtering are the two most common performance enhancements. And having anisotropic filtering adjustment, without antialiasing options seems unusual. Adjusting the antialiasing through the gam...

Antialiasing options would be nice

There is an option for anisotropic filtering, but not antialiasing.

Are there plans to release a future version with the antialiasing option?

If everyone had multiple superflags then the combat would be even. It's not like only a couple players are going to have access to the flags. If everyone had access to the flags the game would be fair.

Ok, then maybe a Super flag that would allow you to combine two flags together. Like a SB and an OO combined.

WG with a SW

BU with a MG

And certain flags would be incompatable (CL with ST, any two types of bullets at once.)

And it took me a while to figure this out: Shoot where a tank WILL be-- not where it IS. If a tank is moving perpendicular to you, shoot ahead of the tank in a spray pattern so that if he stops or goes backwards, it will be harder for him to dodge your bullets. But if the tank is LANDING next to you...

Ghost Flag / Imposter Flag

Like a stealth and cloaking flag put together. Total invisibility. Only lasts for about 15 shots though.

Or an Imposter Flag. The tank shows on on both radar and HUD as a teammate.

Progressive damage, restore tank with health flags

Instead of getting killed instantly when shot, how about if the tank slowly looses life and eventually it blows up. After a few shots, the tank would start to smoke and rattle and not be as efficient (momentum, no jumping, jamming, ect.) instead of "bad flags". And if you don't find a health flag ev...

Sometimes after I search for available servers I'll try to join the game but it will just say "Server not found".
