Re: Need help with Internet connection

Are you trying to connect to European or US servers? US servers should have a lower ping for you.

Is your connection wired or wireless?

bztank gone awol?

I've just noticed that the bztank servers have gone and bztank.net no longer exists.

When did this happen?

Re: Screen goes darker at random times

Ditto for me too re screen going dark and same fix. Windows 10 x64, fully up to date. I get it on my Surface Pro 3 (Intel HD Graphics Family). My "fix" was to change the cfg file to read only and that seemed to stop it from happening but since the latest Win 1903 update it's started again, at least...

Re: VR enviroment on galaxy s8* for bzflag play

Given that people are moving away from PC's for tablets and phones for pleasure then maybe the "use case" has to change with the times? 10 years ago it was great, now it's being artificially limited by "use cases"? BZ is haemorrhaging players left, right and centre and sticking to Windows & Mac only...

Re: BZ running with WINE emulator?

Re: BZ running with WINE emulator?

I'll probably be moving away from desktop to Android tablet in the next wee while and was looking for a way to continue playing BZ.

The only solution I've found so far is to run Linux on an x86 emulator but there are no precompiled BZ packages to download.

I was playing on Ziggurat today when Gauss appeared; his usual abusive self. He's boasting that he has access to 200 vpn's with options for more. He was poll banned and reappeared within a matter of seconds. Do any admins ever appear there? I don't think I've ever seen any. The server owner is jnoob...

A message to all server owners

As most of you will know there is an unregistered player, Gauss, who has been doing the round for the last few weeks. He / she uses many random nicks, different IP addresses, vpn's etc to get on to the game, flag run, team kill and hurl abuse at people. I've also heard stories about him making unsav...

Windows 10 Cloud will run Win32 apps, but only from the Windows Store

Think of it as a Microsoft version of the Chrome Book.

So, will we get a Windows 10 UWP version of BZ?

WADS does the same as the arrow keys.

Re: Windows 10 UWP version developed

It runs as one package. All files etc are stored within the .appx file. There is no "setup" to run. Windows 10 treats it as an app rather than as a Win32 application. When I first created it the app was 22MB in size. Now, after playing on different servers it has grown to about 70MB with files being...

Re: Windows 10 UWP version developed

Blast - No changes made to it. It's simply been "wrapped" in an appx wrapper for Windows 10 (and potentially the Windows app store). I've rechecked the link and it works fine.

Windows 10 UWP version developed

I've cobbled together a Windows 10 UWP version that seems to work well.

Some questions though - What, if any, are the command line switches for the installer?

What about licences?

If you want to try it out then have a look at my post here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bzflag/?fref=nf

Expanding "@" but no idea on what servers

I'm an @ on a few servers and seem to be added to more as time goes on. Today I played on Urban Jungle and saw that I was a "+". An hour later I went back and discovered I was now a "@". I'm not complaining about this but I'd like to know just what servers I *am* a "@" on. Is there a list I can look...

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

Almost certainly a stupid question but if the maintainer doesn't want to be involved then why not get another maintainer?

Or am I missing something so bloomin obvious?

Re: Your BZFlag Hero/Master

Without a doubt Manu - never a cross word from him and he is /was always willing to listen and help. RIP viper.pimpi

Who else? Alcatraz, Viking and all the other 'old timers' from Two Castles. I had many years of good, playful banter with them and always enjoyed their company.

Using the keyboard only...

When in observer mode and I press A i get accelaration and decelaration which is good - i could be used to jump up on some towers (ie the cake tower on viper.pimpi) but when playing the game the A key simply slows me right down which is bad....
