Macrosoft, please read his post before posting stuff that has no relevance. He uses a Slackware variant, not Ubuntu. Yeah, we don't poll keypad keys for menu movement. We could do so, I suppose; I'll see if anyone has any objections first. "nv" is not 3d accelerated, so your performance will suck wh...

Are you using SDL or X for your platform (if you're using SDL, it will say so at the end of your version output...i.e. "BZFlag 2.0.8.20070907-RELEASE-dragonfly1.6.1-SDL")? The codepaths for handling input are very different between them. For what it's worth, building with SDL has more features and i...

BZFlag worlds should be named .bzw, not .map. Some old ones are named .map; we changed bzfs to warn in this case to make things more consistent.

QA is a Good Thing. You'll never find all the problems in your own map by yourself; having someone else look over it can be helpful.

And hey, it's free. If you don't like it, don't use it, but there's no reason to bash the idea.

The default config directory under windows is "My Documents\My BZFlag Files". If your "My Documents" folder is on a network drive it will not work. You can use the -configdir option to change this to any FOLDER (not file) you want, provided said folder is not on a network drive, that you have write ...

You need to use the zlib that matches curl, not the one distributed by zlib.org. If you have an official copy of bzflag installed, use the libcurl.dll and zlib1.dll (if applicable) from it.

Yours is slightly larger because you used VS2005; official builds are usually built in VS2003.

First: Make sure you have sufficient memory allocated to your graphics controller. A lot of old 815's only allocate 8mb by default. This setting can usually be changed in your BIOS; consult your motherboard or system manual for details. Set it to 32mb or so. That should fix your problem. Second: If ...

Random idea: it'd also be cool to record who ended the person's streak. There are some pretty dedicated anti-campers who would love to have that kind of recognition.

donny_baker is mostly correct. High spawns are normally caused by having no safe place to spawn. Spawn safeties can be modified with bzdb.

Can a plugin "ask" a yes or no question? Kinda like in some command line programs, yuo have to give either a "y" or N" responce in order to proceed... can we force the same answers out of players? We could integrate a confirmation if so. At the moment, the only way to do this is the way polls do it...

Cloaked tanks cannot be hit by laser (think about it for a minute - a laser is a beam of light; a cloaked tank is invisible, meaning light passes straight through it).

Unless you have a good reason not to, you should build with SDL. Install whatever package libsdl is shipped in (likely libsdl1.2debian), and re-run ./configure. There's a possibility that our raw X support is broken for modern versions of X; it hasn't been actively maintained in a long time. SDL is ...
