I removed the firewall blocking rules that were preventing you from reaching the server.

You were probably caught by a firewall block rule. Does it work better now?

localhost vs 127.0.0.1

Try using 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost.

I vaguely remember some systems have problems resolving 'localhost' but it works with the IP.

Banlist handling functions

It would be really helpful to have a way to reload the banlist and masterban lists (separately) from a plugin.

This would allow a plugin to reload a shared banlist efficiently instead of having to resort to using a bzadmin process or bzfscron to periodically do banlist reloads.

Debug output

It's just extra text output from the server. When you run the server it reports things on standard output. There are at least 4 debugging levels which gives you more and more output (more than you probably want). Each -d gives you the next level so bzfs -d ... is level 1 bzfs -d -d is level 2 (you c...

Flag zones

Here's a code snippet for a flag zone

Code: Select all

zone
  size 10 10 10
  position 0 -100 25
  zoneflag GM 5
end
You need to add -fb to the server options to allow flags on buildings if you want flags off the floor.

Re: norang servers

All the servers on bzflag.norang.ca are basically an "unrolled rotation server." I used to run a rotation server for LouMan maps but that seemed to always have the wrong map running and the duration of the game is always inconvenient (the game ends too early or it takes too long to change to a more ...

I'm glad it'll have an option for disabling it... I played with it for about a week and felt like I was going to lose my lunch everytime I died :)
