Weekly user-submitted mapchange server

I've been thinking about a server where anyone could submit a map and have it put up on a decent server for a week. As of now, I am not aware if such a server exists. I know that there are many talented map-makers for bzflag, but not all of them have a chance to get their maps hosted. Basically, you...

GUI Admin System

I'm proposing an in-game GUI administrative system similar to the one implemented in Counter-Strike: Source and HL2 (via a plugin). Basically, there is an admin menu, which is brought up by a command (or a bind) that allows a player to do a variety of things. There could be sections for kicking/bann...

Re: Looking for the best mouse for BZflag

I'll put in another recommendation for Razer. I bought a Copperhead used off my friend for around $30 and so far it's a great mouse. It's 2000dpi, but if that's too much you can always scale it back to 1600 or 800. Although I never really liked using BZFlag with a mouse (I still use the keyboard) it...

BZFlag starts windowed instead of full screen and flickers. It doesn't do this when I turn off compiz/advanced effects. Is there a way to make BZFLAG work properly without having to manually disable desktop effects each time I want to run it? I think turning off "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" in C...

I can get around 60-90 on a crowded map like MissileWar2. During a GU match I usually have around 200. Anything below 30 gets a little tough to play on. A television set runs at about 60hz and is usually about 30fps. And movies play at 25fps. So 30 fps shouldn't be a problem :) True, but most monit...

I keep my FPS at a steady 60 (1680x1050). I apparently am forcing my 8600GTS to 8x anisotropic and 16x anti-aliasing on all OpenGL apps, so the FPS doesn't go above or below 60 usually. The lowest playable fps for me is 25ish.

I've had similar problems, however, not just with BZFlag, but with other games. It seems as if the whole system is going down, because the sound stays on for about 30 seconds after there is no response, then that goes off too. Usually, trying to switch to another console (CTRL+ALT+Fx) doesn't work, ...

Have you tried installing the drivers for your graphics card? If the laptop isn't really that old, there should be at least some drivers, and nVidia and ATI both have graphics drivers for Linux. They may be proprietary, but they tend to work.

Depends on my mood. I have 4 choices.
1. None (yay keyboard!)
2. Standard 1-button Mac mouse
3. Razer Diamondback
4. Razer Copperhead
However, the copperhead gets a bit hard when you put the dpi up more than 1600dpi, so I generally keep it at 1600.

I like it. However, I think that the bank account should be reset after a certain amount of time, say 24 hours of no use. This could prevent a situation such as what too much loving stated. Also, there could be two different accounts, checking and savings. Savings could exist on 1 server only, but c...

Oh, and by the way, I hope you're running a 64bit version of vista, because I dont think it can address more than 3.5ishGB of RAM in the 32bit version.

I'd suggest more RAM if you're going to play other games, since the HyperMemory cards seem to eat up RAM after they've used up the dedicated VRAM. Other than that, for BZFlag, it should be more than adequate.
