well, as always, it depends on who your playing. but if you jump, it's nice to land with the advantage.

When I'm facing off with someone, and we both miss each other and end up jumping without wings, I like to turn--just before the jump, so that when I land, I'm facing them, if that makes sense. Usually they just go straigtht and that way, I'm chasing them now.

but what's the password option when you try to connect? is there no way to use a password to limit use? sometimes alot of people play, and it's easier to send around a password than IP address.

could you give me an example? because I can't find any links. the only broken links would be in the map right? since it got to the point of loading the map... and the map is looking okay... the thing is, I don't see how it could be the maps since the maps have been the same for the last 3 monthes wh...

error loading server in public

It's been a while since I've tried to set up a server, like maybe last year sometime, but I decided to try one today, and this is what loads: C:\Documents and Settings\Isaac\My Documents\programs\games\BZFlag2.0.4-rc3>bzfs -conf "madcity.txt" -t is meaningless when using a custom world, ig...

I would have to agree with showing the score at the end of the mactch. I think that the score, except for the team score, should be removed, and then at the end, like when you log out of the game, the full stats: hit accuracy people killed flags captured and then all the things that Brick majors sai...

when i use: -public "yourserver description" where does the description show? I haven't seen it there. I've just left it because. also, how do you edit the ports in the config file? I'm guessing that I should run the server on a different computer. one that's set up only to run servers or ...

ok. well what if i want it advertized but with a password. that seems simplier to me. because the problem is that it isn't being advertised to any of the right people.

I'm living in a Dorm on a College Campus right now, so their is a router/switch for internet, but I've heard that that wouldn't cause anyproblems. I think I'll look into that. --I started the servers using:...

I've gone through the discussion about creating servers, so I know how to run servers on my computer with the various maps that I downloa...

the problem with that version is that you have to edit the config file to change the map that the server will load.
I think i figured something that will work, but what i'd like to know is if there is anyway to edit the maximum players in the config file.
