Strange connection behaviour

If I type in server details in the connection screen and choose connect, the connection always fails with a "Global login rejected. Bad token" The same is true if I just connect with the pre-populated values. However, if I "Find Server", the list returns after about 15 seconds and I then have about ...

Re: BZFlag 2.4.8 became unusable on El Capitan

Interesting. It was scaled (but always was), so I set it to "Default for Display" and it worked.
Set it back to "Scaled" and it's still working.

Either way, back in action, so thanks Consti.

See you on the battlefield.

BZFlag 2.4.8 became unusable on El Capitan (Solved)

BZFlag keeps "oscillating" when launching so that the screen never displays. It seems to be constantly trying to display the main screen, failing, and trying again so that if I move my mouse it keeps resetting in the centre of the screen. Screen does go black, but main screen never appears and occas...

Re: Riker’s Winter Cup 2014 North America vs Europe/Asia????

As Admins, we do the best we can to keep the league fun for all. Frankly there are always complaints about every decision and non-decision we make. It seems that in this case though, we may have underestimated the depth of feeling there was for sticking to a rigid format of excluding players outside...

Re: PillHiX Map

I could never see the point of the corner boxes in Ducati. They were too dangerous to enter, since any shots through the gap caused dangerous ricos inside.
I believe it would be enhanced by a short pyramid at the entrance that would force the attacker to enter after their prey.

Press "-" and hold a bit advances time to darkness. Easier to see blue. I achieve this effect by setting latitude. One of these should work for you.

Re: Round Robin (All Teams Play) Team Cup

It will be very difficult to get people available at those specific times for an extended period. People have busy lives and even to get a team together for Rikers, which involves only two teams, can be very difficult. The only way I can see this being possible is that you create and maintain the to...

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

I think such systems have a lot of merit and anything that contributes to the fun should be considered. There are a few issues at stake here though… 1. The Player: Anything that encourages players to be more active should be encouraged. An ELO rating of kills might be useful, since there will be man...

Re: Autohunt laggy players

So I made one more change. rather than blinking the tank as if hunted, just draw a circle around each tank that would represent the area the tank possibly is by adding local and remote lags and giving the circle a radius of the max distance the tank can move in this period. I find this to be very u...

Re: Flag pass on ducati

IIRC, FS wrote the original bzmatchball.

Yes I wrote the original FlagPass plug-in. I...

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

Red-der brought a real concern to the table and proposed a solution.

There will never be complete agreement for any proposal, but there needs to ...

Re: New players

Each map and each flag has their own particular skill-set to master. Don't be disheartened if you can't master everything at once. You might start with the Ducati maps. No Jumping or special flags. It is much simpler and a great way to learn dodging skills and good use of ricochets. If nobody is the...

Re: How does a server recognize me after changing computer/I

Some miscreants are so bad that it is necessary to blanket ban not only them but also anybody in their vicinity.

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

I think the constant random team assignment might become annoying. You work hard to build your team's score only to be kicked off it. There may need to be some reward for achieving wins. I was thinking that individual scores could be kept, but that would mean complicated match-entry, especially if t...
