If you're desperate to use Sketchup free to build BZ maps, you could try this: 1) Export from Sketchup Free to .kmz 2) Use this script to import a .kmz file into Blender http://jmsoler.free.fr/didacticiel/blender/tutor/py_import_kml-kmz_en.htm 3) Export from blender as .obj 4) You are then free to u...

I'm having the same problem - It is definitely an ATI-Specific issue with Vista.

They're last driver update for my card (Radeon X1600 XT 256MB PCI-E) was on Feb. 21, 2007, and I installed it a day after that...

I've had this same problem through at least 2 sets of ATI drivers in Vista.

If I recall correctly, this isn't a problem - all windows BZ servers show this message - did you check in the server list to see if it realy isn't there? Mine says the same thing, and it shows up just fine.

Thanks Jeff - I may mess with the SGI RBG ones some other time - For now I got the 1.10.0 ones - they're almost the same. I stuck them in a zip, in case anyone else wants them without downloading the old BZ builds. Now, if only I could figure out a way to get those old fonts in the 2.x versions... D...

Anyone have the realy old BZ textures?

Yeah, I have a sudden yearning to play BZ with the CLASSIC textures - Just to bring back the memories of the good ol' days....Jeff, would you happen to have these laying around - like, well before version 1.10.8? Or if anyone else has them, I would be ecstatic. Something like this screenshot: http:/...

Serverlist not showing servers, but I can join servers

Recently upgraded to Windows Vista Ultimate. I think something deep in it's security features is blocking the BZ serverlist... I can manualy type out servers and join them, and even play - just fine, but the serverlist never returns the list of servers. Does it use a certain port that needs to be op...

For a week or two, a few centuries ago, I was on a BZ-Addict streak...I would start at about 9:00 PM and play straight through, without getting up, till 2:00 AM, then finally fall into a tank-saturated sleep...until 7 AM...I had school back then.. :shock:

Just a word of caution - most mainstream DSL providers have server-hosting barred in their terms - it usually creates immense amount of traffic, and of course it all goes back to them...Just so you are aware. ;)

The collsion points can stay the same, I ju...
