Scrolling in the ControlPanel with scrollwheel doesn't work

It doesn't scroll downwards, only upwards it seem. I always have to use the PageDown to scroll to the end.

I'd like the scrollwheel to work correctly on the ControlPanel messages

Local time

I'm in the European time zone and when I connect to a server in the North American timezone (where it's evening or night) the game time is evening (and therefore dark).

I'd like the gametime to be my local time. I can adjust the time with the plus and minus keys but I want this to be automatic.

Re: One of the best games of the Net?

I've been playing BZFlag for almost 20 years, so it must be one of the best games on the net!

It's the only game that I never tire of.

It's just too bad the number of players is dwindling. Are they all moving over to Fortnite?

Re: Servers Classification (Protected Mode #2)

Why don't you just prohibit messaging on Kid-friendly servers?

Also I don't understand the distinction between mild and bad words.

Re: Apocalypse Is The Greatest Map of All Time

I hate it when they keep altering things, mostly not for the better. Just keep the original map.

Also they're adding stupid flags like 7-1 which add nothing except irritation.

Re: BZ Client, force registration before being allowed to play

You cannot stop cheaters as long as the game is open-source.

Even closed source games can be modified, although that would be beyond most peoples' abilities.

Forced registration would add nothing, except irritate new players who just want to jump in and play immediately.

Stupid flags

I recently noticed a stupid and in my opinion superfluous negative flag: 7-1.

I find this flag detrimental to the gameplay as it adds nothing, it's merely irritating.

I find negative flags in general to be detrimental to the gameplay, and as far as I'm concerned they should all be scrapped.

Re: bzflag graphics improvements?

I personally think there's been too much emphasis on the graphics already by way of the "effects."

The gameplay is much more important to me than the graphics. That's why I'm still playing BZFlag and not Crysis or those other impressive console games.

Re: Possibility of BZFlag on a console

It should be relatively easy to get it to work on the XBox One

PS4 is probably a lot more work.

Re: Possibility of BZFlag on a console

The XBox One version is a lot easier and cheaper then since you simply need to target UWP. But I'm sure the BZFlag foundation could acquire a PS4 DevKit as an Indie Developer. Why do you need to rewrite it from scratch? No matter what graphics backend they use, if the codebase is properly archtectur...

The Tower map

I'm looking for a map that I saw a long time ago: I believe it was called The Tower, with a large rectangular map and in the middle a high tower with portals at both the bottom and the top at all four sides. I believe the game was Rabbit Hunt You could snipe from a distance in the corners or you cou...

Re: Possibility of BZFlag on a console

Who says it has to be free? You can charge a token amount (%1) to cover the costs. Since there are bound to be thousands of players on the console version, the cost of producing could be low. You can also collect funds using Kickstarter or some similar crowdfunding site. If BZFlag is to survive, it ...

Possibility of BZFlag on a console

Moderator Note: Split this topic from BZFlag inspired game under development

-allejo
What I find exciting is that this project has the prospect of a producing a BZFlag-type game console version (PS4, XBox One). The XBox One version should be pretty easy to make actually, by way of UWP.

Could you post a couple of screenshots? I'm not running a binary of which I don't know the origin and since you're not converting to the newer version I''ll just wait for the project to be along a little further.

I've been playing BZFlag since the turn of the century and I'm noticing that attendance has dropped off markedly the last couple of years. I've been asking myself why this is. Some of the reasons I came up with The maps are less fun, the older, simple but fun maps are not being hosted anymore, maps ...
