Re: bzexcess:5156

I would cast my vote strongly in favor of this server becoming official. Lag times seem favorable and the server has proven consistent. Blast is also a trusted bzflag developer and server owner, and could provide a good home for an official GU match server. Ya, I can only second that. And on top of...

GU League BZWiki Article

Hey y'all, I was browsing the BZWiki today and saw the http://my.bzflag.org/w/GU_League only had about 5 lines of info on it. I decided to spend the next couple hours writing everything I could think of down. It's my first BZWiki article, so it's pretty messy and so on. Just wanted to know what you ...

Re: bzexcess:5156

The server is located in Ohio, actually. Oh, that's right. Guess MoFo's datacenter is in Florida or something.. Hehe, nope, mofo is in Ohio too. Same datacenter. ;) http://xlhost.com/datacenter.php But anyway, glad to hear the lag is low. Ok..getting embarrassing. It was BZFlagr, right?! :P

bzexcess:5156

heya, wanted to let you all know that blast has been so kind to set up a new US - HiX server for us. I asked him if he could do it, because I noticed that euros had pretty good lag there (120-140ms) and thought it might become a better solution for the US/Euro matches. He's also said that he'd set u...

Re: Very fast shooting

You can't say that the q w e mapping is simply the best. I agree that having three keys assigned to shooting is very practical, but doesn't necessarily have to be the best. A lot of good players mainly use the scroll wheel to shoot. Depending on mouse, you can get great spreads by using the wheel. S...

Re: trouble telling what height the shot coming at you is.

First off, don't camp. :p Now, there is a setting that can help judge the shot height better. It's located in Options -> GUI Settings -> Colored shots on radar -> ON (it's the 8th setting from the top). Home that helps. How would this help determine the height of the shots? Aren't all shots rendere...

Yes, it's a very useful strategy, used on the HiX map.

Well, we have plenty of really cool ideas now.

Re: Official league match server..

Seeing as this would only make matches with australian vs australian easier, I think it's up to, to find a reliable server that can be used. It won't change things lag wise, if you're playing American or European teams, because the lag will just be on their side and you won't be able to kill them an...

You also haven't said if you want it to be Euro vs American or all players put into the Rookie/Veteran groups, I'm assuming the latter. You say that how we are going to determine Rookies and Veterans in undecided. How are you going to divide players? It can't be done by their date of joining, becaus...

Re: Looking for the best mouse for BZflag

To add to what IDO posted. Those kind of mice are pretty popular in the GU-league. It's a whole other way of playing and has an entirely different feel to it compared to your every-day mouse. You really just need to visit a good computer electronics store and ask if you could try some out. Even if m...

Let me remind you, that the RikerCup was just held about two months ago. Which effectively means that most players aren't that interested in another big event.

Re: Lagstats in replays

A great trait our admins have is COMMON SENSE. Honestly you have no chance to know. Most decisions are kept secret and when a ban is issued for example it may not be announced or the exact reasons are not revealed to the public. I have a very different opinion regarding the definition of a cheat. A...
