Alternative Server List???

Silly question. This probably has been asked before... Is there an alternative list of servers currently online aside from the one you get by default? I know when hosting, you can manually enter a public list to be on... I'm wondering... 1) where said list would be 2) How would one go about configur...

How busy was it?

I turned it on and played a bit but had to go to work. When I got home, my bot was the only one on and it had a score of -500. I must've had some serious traffic in nine hours.

Now I'm on the master ban list...

Grrr!!!

I sent you a PM, learner. I said this in the PM - I wanna say it here for anyone to see. If people are not supposed to list their server as anything vulgar, it should be noted. All I saw re: the public list server when setting up my server was "Keep it short" Of course, people like me will always tr...

Can't resolve server list or browse forums from home

I could be wrong about this - but I think my IP from home may be banned from the server list/these forums. Thing is, I don't know why, or what I have done. When trying to browse the server list from home, the operation times out, and I cannot access these forums either. Gives me the "Forbidden" erro...

Land Mines (Flag/World Weapon)

How about a flag that drops land mines behind you as you drive forward? Or the flag could be a type of World Weapon, where once you roll over the flag, you hear three beeps, or see a quick 3 second countdown - then where ever the flag is destructs taking out whoever is near. I'm thinking a SW about ...

Invasion of the Body Snatchers!!! (Flag Idea)

Flag idea - can go about it two ways... First off, the flag switches places with you and another player. This could be done in the spirit of Thief - where a little beam touches you... Or similiar to GM, where you have to right click to lock on to someone THEN switch. Flag drops after one use - or at...

Yeah!

Also...

Instead of silver bullet, how about a wooden stake? Silver kills werewolves... It's flexible

This would come into play - add parameters to the vampire can only play at night! Making the -synchtime option come into play. The exacts of that would have to be worked out.

Alright - here's an update... If you are a part of a LAN, and you wanna run a server for other people to connect on over the internet - you are going to have to forward the port. Log into your router/gateway device (refer to owner's manual) and forward UDP ports to the local IP of your server box. W...

OK, here's a lil more about my setup: All my systems are running SuSE 9.1 Pro, save for one hard wired client that can be windows 2000 pro or Suse 9.1 personal. I'll probably run the server on a old Dell dimension 8100, with a 1.2 (or so) Pentium 4, 256 megs of ram. Suse 9.1 pro, with whatever the d...

Icon question

So BZ Flag came preinstalled on my SuSE 9.1 distro, and it had a little icon. It was grey, with a BZ at the top and FLAG on the bottom in a smaller font. When I upgraded to 2.0, I haven't found that same icon, and I was hoping someone could tell me where to find it. Now, it just has the blank generi...

Well, I upgraded to BZ 2.0. Yay, great game, what everyone else said. I use Linux (Suse to be specific) and I'm still relatively new to Linux, but I've been a regular on viper's TWO CASTLES server for the past month or so now, (I'm Darth Vader) and they are not 2.0 compatible. What I'd LIKE to do is...

Your problem lies not within the OS itself, but likely a setting somewhere or another.

Thanks!
