Re: New functionality/plug-in request: dynMotto

Alpha1, maybe I am wrong, sorry if this is the case, but reading the latests threads that you started recently it seems to me that you are posting PMs, private chats, screenshots, etc from private conversations with players and admins with no permission whatsoever from them. It is a rule of courtesy...

Re: Open Letter to the LU community regarding rule changes

I agree players must have a say in league functioning and rules, and they actually do. Players may get a new idea through and implemented if presented in a constructive way. We have had many examples of that in the past. Actually the league we have now is the product of this continuous constructive ...

Re: Ducati Mini Map

Is this meant as another official map? Or a try-out for FMs? It is meant to be official for those who want to make the choice. It is specially relevant for small 2 vs 2 matches. Large maps full of blocks can become boring and frustrating once you are one flag down, you spawn so far away from flags ...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

I propose this: Let us put this discussion in the fridge by now (in all senses of the term ;) ) and let us all concentrate in getting LU started and fix the issues that we already might have before messing the field with more complications. The plan was to merge actual DUC and GU not to change the p...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

I think sox is making good points, specially in his first post. I never liked mouse accel. over-clocking so to speak in ducati maps because tanks are more prone to glitch and show apparent shoots through. For 10 years DUC style has become more about anticipating moves than accelerating your mouse an...

Re: GU League Rules

Hello all, 1st: It will limit the bans like "Janis, Snake!, Fear, Dazzling4 " and I am sure many others, (https://www.guleague.org/Bans/) Which in results allows increase activity. 2: More freedom upon players that feel like they can voice what they wish in a mature manner.

Re: Mouse

I am using an old Logitech G5 always in linux and using acceleration as "xset mouse 10 1" which means accel: 10 and threshold 1, I don't know if this is the best config but it is the one I got used to over the years of using it. This mouse is able to give 2000dpi max and I use about 1000 dpi to play.

Re: Ruling admins

I have always been quite involved with GU, actually I was here when menotume, dax and me built this thing, I was also a member of Ducati Council for many years, but perhaps to be a member of the new league board as ducati representative is a bit of an excess. I am sure most players identify me more ...

Re: New League Name

I concur the new name should be broad and inclusive, using a name too similar to one already in place, like Open or GU, is a bad start. I support "BZFlag League".

Re: Medals.

Has anyone ever considered some sorta medal system for teams? admins could award medals to teams for certain achievements such as 100th match, 500th match, 1000th match, or 5.0 activity or reaching 1500 points. Medals would appear in a certain section of a teams profile page. Specific players could...

I was shocked to know about Murielle's life came to an end. She was a clever, energetic, and courageous girl, from what I could grasp from my interactions with her online. She was not always understood, liked to push for things to be done the way she liked. She was a well-known character in the bz c...

And there are good reasons to think so. We already have faster-t...

On the new version I was dissaponted that there wasn't any BZF GU servers since there are only brads servers which seem more jitty. Will the BZF's servers be on the 2.4 soon? since I would have to go back to the old version to play gu where there are still so many people playing on the bzf GU serve...

Important announcement: UPGRADE to 2.4

Just a brief note to remind you to upgrade to the new 2.4 Bzflag client version as soon as possible. As you probably know the new version 2.4 is not compatible with the previous 2.0.x. So you cannot join a 2.4 server with a 2.0.x client and viceversa. Please check http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.p...
