Map files?

Hey, all. I'm back. And with yet another map problem.

I have a bunch of .map files. Do they work with the current version of BZFlag, or do I need to do something first? Or do they not work at all?

Thanks,
Bippwatt.

Re: Team controled auto guns.

I don't want them to be controlled by a tank. I want them to be automatic. Like a World Weapon. Only it only shoots when it sees a tank that doesn't belong to the team that is belongs to.

Re: Team See Stealth?

I don't know, I'd prolly put SR at #1 most useless flag, you have to be so close to another tank for it to work, and its just not possible to get that close to the other tank, the only people you have a chance to kill with this flag is teammates, I really believe SR should be considered a bad flag....

Re: Team Voice Chat

While I risk making a life time enemy (jk) I have to disagree with Blast on this. The only time you can talk and not garble your message is when your dead, otherwise you risk dying again and again...and shorthand? Everyone will make a new short hand and no one will understand each other. Then what d...

Bubble Shield

Take the shield flag and make it a bubble surrounding the tank. Large enough to fit about 2-4 tanks+flag-toter. Then make the shield impervious to everything but SB, SW and Laser. Then make it so the shield only fails when the host tank dies. All tanks can move in and out of the bubble...it only sto...

Re: Downloaded maps won't work.

Very sorry about that. I should have though of that.

But it does work. So thank you all for helping me...even though you could have given me a link and told me to go play with my dolls. (Not that I have any.)

How do I play on it?

If I don't use the start server, what do I do?

Re: Downloaded maps won't work.

Same thing....But it seems to be working. Note: no acceleration limit has been set. Players using "mouse enhancements" may cause problems on this server due to very high acceleration rates which are not handled well by dead reckoning algorithms. To eliminate this warning, set the -a switch in your c...

Re: Downloaded maps won't work.

The maps are in my home directory.

Does that mean I say:

Code: Select all

/home/nicholas/map.bzw
Or do I do something else?

Health meter.

Have tanks have a set amount of damage they can take and give weapons different damage ratings. That way it takes more to kill a tank than one shot. As a side bonus, I was looking at other threads in here and I found one for making rabbits faster, better, ect... Well, I thought that Rabbits could be...

Team controled auto guns.

Have like a MG turret that is fixed and auto shoots at enemy tanks. You could also use: Laser Super Bullet GM? Or just basic guns. Give them some sort of defense that weakens as it gets hit then it dies. Or they get hit and die. This might be nice for CTF....have to rely less on crap tons of tanks i...

Re: what flag do you pwn with?

I'm a big fan of Stealth. So I hate seer. But I'm a fan of GM(who isn't) and Shockwave. Laser isn't too bad. I use it when I can rico it 500 million times. Geno is nice too. And on a side note...I don't get why wide angle is a bad flag...you can see more at a time...this makes it easier to see a thr...

Downloaded maps won't work.

This might not be the right place for this, but it seemed the best place to put it. I have downloaded 3 maps for BZFlag (duh, I know). I tried using them without doing anything to them. My client knows they are there, because I now have more than "random map" to select from. However, if I try to sta...

Re: Identify Trouble

Thank you very much.
That would have been bad....It's nice to have people who are so kind as to look out for your own information safety.

Again thank you and I will try what said.
