Re: BZFlag 2.4.4 Release Candidate 1

[*] CIDR ban support (Uses the format x.x.x.x/y, which lets you ban specific blocks of IP addresses, which can assist with blocking large amounts of addresses with a single ban, or can allow more specific ban ranges than were previously possible) This part made me wonder: how is IPv6 support in BZF...

Re: SourceForge is now bundling adware without dev permissio

Also, Sourceforge is not wrapping our installers with their crapware bundle at this point. That may be true for now, but there's nothing stopping them. Also, there are people who refuse to download any software from SourceForge whatsoever— and I think that's a good idea. I've seen several comments ...

Re: SourceForge is now bundling adware without dev permissio

Okay, I did. Blast007 told me he's aware of the situation and plans to have BZFlag stop using SourceForge ASAP. They're talking about using GitHub releases or just hosting it themselves.

Re: SourceForge is now bundling adware without dev permissio

Can you put the current release on GitHub and then link to that on your Bzflag.org download page, instead of linking to SourceForge?

Re: Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Crash

I then I relaunched and did the same thing, and again there were no crashes. No crashes at all, but I didn't do anything with this build ot...

Hey Constitution. I see that we're both online here right now and I had an idea. If you want, I can let you connect to my computer's screen via TeamViewer so that you can see happen in real time. If another time would work better, let me know and we can schedule it. Send me a PM.

OS X 10.9 BZFlag crashes right after launching

BZFlag has worked fine for me on this machine in the past, but once I upgraded to OS X 10.9 Mavericks, it has been crashing almost immediately after it starts. I'm use a mid-2009 15" 2.53GHz MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. Oddly, it worked just fine maybe two or three times ...

Re: Bullet rhythm

My drum set is electronic, so it might be fun to get a MIDI-to-USB cable and set my drum heads to trigger various BZFlag sound effects. Then I could make real BZFlag rhythms and post them somewhere. Maybe over the summer.

Bullet rhythm

I found a map with unlimited shots (Fancy Mudzone on mudpit.servegame.com:5154). I'm a drummer and the map wasn't busy (1 opponent), so I grabbed super bullet and started making rhythms with my shots. It was fun. :)

I still fought my opponent, but I was making rhythm while doing it.

Digital signing for OS X Mountain Lion

OS X Mountain Lion, due out this summer, will change the type of apps allowed to run. The default will be to only allow (1) apps from the Mac App Store and (2) apps from outside the app store that have been digitally signed by the developer with a certificate issued by Apple. The two other choices f...

No, this thread is about the plugin that's SW only. You type /mine and that's it. No other options.

Re: UselessMine - Create Mines with the Useless Flag Once Ag

The problem with any of these mine plugins is that if a user lays a lot of mines, he or she will get warned and eventually kicked for spamming. That's because /mine is treated like any other chat message. I've run into that several times on maps with mine plugins. Is there a way to have the BZflag s...

Activating hunt sometimes makes me keep going backwards

I play with nothing but the keyboard. At seemingly random times, when I start hunting someone (press U, select with up/down arrows, press enter) my tank immediately starts moving backwards- without me touching any of the controls. When that happens, the client does not respond to the up or down arro...
