king.bzflag.org is still running 1.8, but I am unaware of anywhere you can download a working client for windows (CVS does not compile on Win, it might on linux). Besides, it is very buggy. Like you, I'd just as soon wait for the next protocol-breaking release.

Spiff: The Seer flag and the other 5 flags added to 1.8 were, well, part of BZFlag 1.8, which has been discontinued. I believe there are plans to reimplement them in the 1.7 branch, when protocol is broken. The (semi)official definition of Seer was "See CL, ST, MQ [that's masquerade, one of the othe...

There are already several feature requests for more basic shapes and curves on SourceForge. I don't know if anything is being done about them or not, but there were some concerns about collision detection

Error with missing GLU.h

If you're having problems... Some distros (e.g. Mandrake) ship with a rather limited version of mesa, and will generate errors about a missing GLU.h file when you follow the above steps. If this is the case, go download the newest version of mesa from http://3dmesa.sourceforge.net and install it, th...

Rather than having the GUI display the output, couldn't you make the program output a basic world file with just that shape in it (or have the option to do so)? The user could then open the resulting map file and manipulate the shape and build the rest of the world around it, or copy the shape into ...

Rather than having built-in shapes, it might be more flexible to let it create a "hollow box with x sides" and a "solid box with x sides" (that's the other suggestion: make it able to fill in the middle; might require some weird math or lots of boxes tho). Then instead of having to hard-code all of ...

If you download 1.7g0, you can set the transparency of the control panel all the way down, to make it fully opaque. This will speed up old video cards quite a bit. Unfortunately, this option is not available in the version that came with Mandrake (1.7e6).

For dev types who want to know what needs to change (in very general terms), look at [url=http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=658074&group_id=3248&atid=353248]feature request 658074[/url] on SF.net.

Linux et al compatibility

Well, here's what happened... When I first wrote the BZFlag Server GUI, it was just to test some options out and run custom maps and so on, not intended to be a really distributable product. So I did something really foolish and wrote it in Visual Basic. Too late, I realized that *nix users wouldn't...
