If you a really serious about programming, then you also need someone to help you out when you run into trouble. This forum is not the right place to ask newbie programming questions, so you need another forum where you can ask for help when your code does not work. Usenet is the best place that I ...

Anyways, I downloaded the compiler, and I need to find the template for a plug-in.

EDIT: I'm having trouble finding it. Search is getting useless for downloading it.

What sort of scale were you thinking of?
For example, how big would the tank be in comparison to a can of baked beans? or compared to a human..?

My post was entirely genuine. I have no clue what he is doing.
It's not possible to download a programming language.

Why the hell would you not rather just KILL THE ENEMY ?!?! ERROR! The idea is that you can keep enemies at bay so you can maneuver around without a tank chasing you. I.E.: There's a large box with a small exit. You can plaster it with bullets on a non-ricochet server, and trap them. And why the hel...

An Interview with LouMan!

LouMan is one of the greatest mappers for bzflag and, as a member of MDG, was kind enough to answer my questions about his experience in mapping, and bzflag in general.

Ok, blast, then no, flight, you do not have explicit permission to use the images. Contact the owner and ask.
However, in my opinion, trepan will have no problems with you using them (even without permission), as this is what delusion has discovered.

I find it hard to believe that Trepan would ever have a problem with anybody using his images, as long as the use was BZFlag. Sure, I agree, but we can't read exactly what Trepan's mind is, and saying it's alright when we haven't heard anything officially from him could be in err. He didn't say it ...

The idea is you can keep enemies off a certain area. Either that, or to blow up tanks who think its a graphics glitch :twisted: . ;p

You are confusing bzfs and bzflag config files. They are totally different.
