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: The Tower map

The design is basically very simple, a large playing area with a square high tower in the middle with portals on each side at ground level and at the top of the tower on each side. And lots of flags, including laser and ST

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.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

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.

Is BZFlag dying?

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 ...

Re: BZFlag for SteamOS?

If you use SteamWorks the code calling it can still be open-source can it not?

Preventing cheats is probably the biggest problem and would most likely require altering the protocol.

BZFlag for SteamOS?

Wouldn't it be pretty straightforward to port BZFlag to SteamOS? It's Linux, after all. This would be great to get some new blood on board since BZFlag activity has been gradually declining from 100 players to 30 players active during peak hours. And what about PS4 or XBox One? Would that be possibl...

Re: Censored and uncensored servers

Well, I don't want to, because for me taunting my opponents is an integral part of the game. Secondly, many people don't mind bad language or spamming and the ones that do are smart enough to find the 'K' button anyways. What really gets me mad is that when a cheater appears there's ussually no admi...

Censored and uncensored servers

I hate it that most of the servers have censorship on them because some people are complaining how there little kid brother is playing on it and their little ears can't cope with the bad language (like they never hear it in school).

Old servers

Are there still old servers being hosted? I just installed 1.10.8 but I can't find any. IIRC someone noted that there are still some older servers being hosted.
