Can't You Feel The Love

Wow, feel the love around here. Remember who we, the BZFlag community are. It certainly isn't the elite group or club that seemed implied by a few posts here and in other threads lately. PAstreettank - We aren't sure exactly at which point you are having problems. Is it when you tell the game to fin...

CBG Implored:
Who decides who is "good"?

Why of course, I do.

I see you when you're sleeping,
I know when you're awake.
I know if you've been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

Hmmm, good list is blank again this year. Note to self - Need more coal.

I asked the last question because curiously enough, I'm the admin of the ISP in question. I can bypass the site in the cache server if I know exactly what it is.

Would it be easier to just have the ISP not cache list.bzflag.bz?

Don't know. I think I cap'd the flag about 12 times in an hour on pillbox once. Don't know what my kills/killed was as the important thing was to cap the flag. I often take the bullet for other teamies to block or cover for them when they have the flags and I also will run in and sacrifice myself to...

This is the kind of discussion I was hoping for here. most threads trying to tackle the topic of bans end up spiralling out of control, but this one has gotten good dev input and has been very informative and best of all, hasn't degenerated into a free for all. I do see this as a plus now, where I w...

Only those who have CVS access ( mostly developers ) can commit to the banlist, so this means they have gone thru some form of trust building in the comunity. And I have no problem trusting the developers at this point. I would question the "mostly" part though if it included some of the often over...

dw, This isn't about Pat, multiple noses, belly buttons or whatever. But given your response, I see that you already decided this person is to be banned from multiple servers without even looking for evidence of proof. So now you are being "Big Brother" for those servers and you are relying on your ...

Tabalman, Here's your issue: using a satellite connection It takes time for the signal to bounce up and back from a satellite. All satellite internets I have seen have a disclaimer for high speed gaming because of the incredible amount of lag induced by the round trip travel time of the signal. Ther...

Zerooooooooooooo..... There should be 4 tall pits with one or two fire through only openings about half way down for lucky pot shots at the falling tank and the base at the bottom. Multiple levels sound intriguing but strategically placed teleporters are the best method for transport on it. Jumps sh...

Need some help

I've been seeing a few different IPs hitting my server just to gather information. I keep taking it up and down while deciding whether to keep it online because of this. I'd like to, but I have a fundamental problem with the possibility that someone is harvesting player information just to see who i...

I'll host it. I'll put it online hopefully yet today. 3 or 4 person teams? I like 3 but with that many ST, I dunno. I'll add 2 observers if it is 3 person.

2 rogues with a couple sides of color coming right up. Please pull around to the second window.

I didn't think this belonged in the Leagues section because it doesn't neccessarilly have to be leagues only but it is related. I was wondering why we don't have a map that is CTF and allows rogues for competition. It would seem to me that a time limit game with two teams of three and two rogues wou...

Probably An Old Idea

Would it be too difficult to add what I call a portal to BZFlag. The portal would transport the tank to another server or game on the same server. Kind of like levels but it could be interesting. Especially in CTF. You could put the bases in different levels and everyone starts out in the lowest lev...

All, I was a little hasty in my decision to remove Rat Lab from the public in another thread. I have been reminded how many people like it and that it is a nice place to play. I got a little torqued by a post and my response was almost a foolish decision. Therefore Rat Lab will be coming back tomorr...
