Localization is done via the .po files in bzflag/data/l10n. The bzflag_xx.po has basic instructions at the top; if you need more information, feel free to ask someone who's done it before (translators should be listed at the top of each .po), or some dev who knows more than I do. You'll need to copy...

You're welcome to implement iterators for the API parameter classes. Such a patch would likely be accepted. You may not, however, use the STL to do so ;) (so no typedef'ing to std::vector<int>::iterator, for instance). There was a reason we didn't use the STL in the API itself (not that I remember w...

bz_getPlayerIndexList already provides a list of valid id's. In your original code, try changing: bz_PlayerRecord *player = bz_getPlayerByIndex(i); to: bz_PlayerRecord *player = bz_getPlayerByIndex(playerList[i]); Alternatively, use iterators to step through playerList directly. i ranges from 0 to n...

If the problem is specific to a particular profile, it frequently is caused by a problem with the config file. Move your ~/.bzf directory away and see if the problem persists.

There has been an exploit involving sending bzfs messages from a partially-completed connection for quite some time. It has been fixed in cvs. If it continues to be a problem there is potential for a 2.0.10 release to encourage server owners to upgrade.

.org is an international generic top level domain. Anyone can register to use one, and there's no correlation to countries. Furthermore, as far as bzflag goes, most servers are hosted on subdomains, so the TLD will tell you just about nothing (i.e. ducati.bzflag.org was in germany, while one.bzflag....

If you don't know what you're talking about, you really shouldn't try to be pedantic. "Lag" in general means a slowness or retardation (e.g. "lag time" was used in the '50s to describe the time between dependent tasks; "jet lag" is another example from the same era). You're right that there's no suc...

If everyone says it, perhaps you can point me to where someone has said it? :)

There are a number of things which have been specifically prohibited. I don't recall this as being one of them. It's just really, really hard, for a very small benefit.

A simple bzfs mod would force the thief flag to be "sticky" (like bad flags), and therefore undroppable. That plus a very long reload time should do what you want. Alternatively, another simple bzfs mod would drop all shots which were not thief. A plugin could probably be made with that capability.

Possibly your callsign is locally registered at some servers. Try using /identify (with your old password that you /register-ed with), then /deregister.
