Re: BZList is returning

I like it. One thing though, are notifications supposed to work? I granted permissions in browser and tried testing by adding favorite server and a friend, but I get no notifications for either.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

I like it eti, Hey, thanks for your feedback! My only thing would be that movement box. Being in the bottom right will take getting used to, but feels bad when I dont know where my mouse is cause I cant see it. I would prefer it a lil closer to mid screen, even if its transparency is down so it isn...

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

So I made some changes including relocating the motion box. I'd appreciate if you would test it and tell me if it's playable like that. I have not yet pushed a release, waiting for this change to be tested, but the code can be updated using a script. I outlined the update process in an earlier post....

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

No, conventional FPS controls wouldn't do because motion depends on the absolute position of the mouse cursor. I personally think this is one of the best aspects of BZFlag controls, so I'm replicating it.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

For instance, the movement of the UI and crosshair, which both BZ and quite a few FPS players will probably tend to find odd. For BZ players, the movement will be considered "odd" due to moving independently of the crosshair/target sight. The field of view in a great deal of FPS games is completely...

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Thanks for providing that info.

From what I could find, your graphics card can support OpenGL up to version 1.3, so the game may not run on it.

Couldn't Godot just run natively on Linux?
Yes it could. The problem is I'm working with an old version of Godot, and it expects old versions of system libs installed, so it didn't work on some newer distros. Wine on the other hand just works where I tested.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

trpted, what graphics card do you have installed on your computer?

It appears that your card or the installed drivers do not support OpenGL 2

Try this command as root to find the card model:

lspci | grep -i --color 'vga\|3d\|2d'

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Although the game concept is alright/okay, the handling/interface of it at this point in time is not intuitive. Is it the game menu, the ui, the controls or something else that you find not intuitive ? There seems to be an uncertain game design, as in much of the "apparent" effort going towards the...

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Most games just hash out the files and replace the ones that have changed. You just need a manifest and a web server. Then I don't see the advantage over using rsync. Seems like more work and using a tool not designed for the task. Also for something that says it's open source... where is the sourc...

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Umm why the heck does a video game need rsync? Just for updates? That seems like a huge security hole. I needed a method to quickly update game files without resorting to download the game every time something changes. rsync works very well for this. I couldn't find examples of how other games do i...

Hello again! Here we go with a first public release! That's not to say game is ready for public consumption, it's far from that. I'm releasing the game in the hope of receiving feedback from wider audience on the core game concept. My immediate plan is to gather feedback and push for making a full m...

Oh, that's quite awesome, I'll make sure to give it a try! Do you think you could put the video on youtube, or would you rather keep it "semi-confidential" so far?
Thanks! I'm just keeping it simple. Perhaps when the game gets some polish I'll start thinking about more exposure.

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Small update. I have recently redone the code for bots to be more adaptable. It is still far from finished, but the new code should be much more flexible. Here is a short video demonstrating playing vs bots. http://45.32.180.51/what/#/1/7 http://45.32.180.51/assets/2019-09-26%2017-44-57.m4v Both lin...

Another long delay and little to show for it, but bear with me as I change gears :D

I have changed the site a little and added a short video.

Re: Thoughts on competitive/league play

Re: BZFlag inspired game under development

Making a website for the game is taking longer than I would have liked, so I will publish what I came up with so I can turn back to actually making that game :-p

I want to add a few videos on that site shortly, and give it a proper domain:

Re: Sniping League

I think Space Invaders map by ahs would be a good candidate for addition to the league. I like the way superflags are used in this particular map, as they serve tactical purpose, and encourages team cooperation (unlike other maps which play mostly like FFA). It might be worth a try in a full match.
