Re: Why are there only like 30 people playing BZFLAG at one

Thanks, <JeffM> and <blast>, I'll de-install the one that came with the distribution - and try again - checking the documentation . . . . . I've done this operation before quite ok, but it's been a while, so I've probably overlooked something . . . . I'll keep at it. Thanks for the HU on 2.4.3. I'll...

Re: BZFlag 2.0.14 and 2.0.16 are Breaking!

Re: BZFlag 2.0.14 and 2.0.16 are Breaking!
