Re: Why are there only like 30 people playing BZFLAG at one

hix and ducati are the best places to learn jumping and dodging respectively, no doubt. the gameplay however is incredibly boring for many bz players.. using and defending against flags sharpens your bz skills too, those are just additional skills non-existent in a ducati or hix game. you can get be...

Re: On Master-Ban-List?!

sounds like it would be pretty handy. we can always use a plugin like that against other nuisance when the need arises. I was nearly going to write a plugin just for Swiss boy. After a delay (due to URL job) It would kick a joiner if they were found in one of multiple DNSBLs (as none of them alone g...

so it's even easy to do. server owners reading this: please prevent rogues from getting geno'ed and alter rogues' shot flag to nothing if the type is geno. rogue fairness ftw..

Re: New Gun-Games at Planet-MoFo Passion

it should be enough to say that this plugin makes me play the passion of the ffa map, which i have avoided since 9 years (something against symmetric ffa maps). bz development is actually realized thanks to great plugins like this.

Re: overly broad hostbans on servers?

There currently is nothing in place to let server owners see who their bans turn away. I personally think that admins need to be more careful with host bans and not simple ban *.com hosts to make sure they catch them all (Exaggeration). PM me your IP/Host and I'll see what bans I can narrow down. A...

Re: Grassroots by Babel

that happens to me when i go nr during a game (connection to the server lost). when i leave normally, (or f12 when about to get shot :twisted: ) the old score is retrieved. it may be that being kicked/banned by admin or poll may reset your score too but i don't know about that.

another solution is obvious as well, and quite simple.
