On head (not on 2.0) you can use the "A" key (or another key of your choice) to slow movement from all input devices (in 2.0 it only works against keyboard input...try it out if you want). Of course if you have extra axes lying around doing nothing anyway....

The list server is recieving your ADD request from a different address than torborg.com redirects to. Requesting address is 72.51.12.20 while server is at 72.51.12.130. CannonBallGuy is probably on the right track for the fix; your host is probably using some kind of http proxy, unless you have mult...

Actually he was programmed to drop the flag if he didn't have a base, but the function continued executing assuming the flag was not dropped and that he did have a base. Just a wee little missing "else" statement.

I can't duplicate that bug at all. Joined green team on a ctf server, turned on autopilot right next to the red flag, Roger picked it up and drove off towards the green base with no problems at all.

If it has a Free os and x86 cpu arch, just drop a copy of the os on your desktop and build bzflag from it there (even if it doesn't, you can cross-compile, it's just a bit more work). You'll also need a libcurl binary if you don't have that installed.

Default dependencies should not be added to the project's "additional dependencies". They are defaults, we just use them. If your compiler is not set up with the correct defaults, set it up properly. You won't be able to compile *anything* nontrivial (not just bzflag) without them.

As the page you linked to says:
Please give feedback to AKAQuinn AT hotmail.com if it doesn't (or does) work.
We do not maintain the Obelisk packages, the Obelisk maintainer does. Note that the download link links to /suparun/ (obelisk used to be called suparun) not /bzflag/.

The shattering effect used to be hardcoded. As of about version 1.7g0 or so it became dynamic. That was what, three years ago? Four? So it's changed relatively recently.

L4m3r: that was tried in a dev version before 2.0. It made people sick ;)

You need curl-dev, SDL-dev, and the dev package for whatever opengl you're using (mesa usually). If you want to use bzadmin you'll want ncurses-dev also.

Silverfox: You can run bzfscron commands in the crontab. So do something like: 0 0 * * * /cron reload and at midnight it will reload the crontab and update from any changes you've made.

There are certainly problems with this plugin. It's kind of a bad hack to begin with. It will only load in player slot 0, as I_Died_Once discovered. It doesn't have to be loaded first, but slot 0 needs to be unoccupied, and loading it at startup is the easiest way to guarantee that. (If you have Pla...

To clarify a couple things: These are listed in order from general to specific. 1. A number of the developers value Free software VERY highly. We would instantly lose at least two, probably more active developers if BZFlag incorporated even one line of non-Free code. Considering that there are only ...

Now that's odd. Texturing is screwed up. It's not just the fonts, look at the title also. Make sure your video drivers are up to date and that your video card is not overheating. What sort of video card are you using?

Personally I'm not a big fan of it. On the main project page, the project details pane (which is where all the good information is) is crammed into the smallest column and at the bottom of the page.
