I'm going to be reviewing the server, and you can write a little description of the server that I'm gonna put under "Description".

Working on it...

I'm still working on Beginner Tips #2. Writing all these things are back-breaking. Hopefully it'll be easier with Windows Live Writer. Meanwhile, keep yourself occupied with my Secrets!! #2 . I'll try to get the second tip finished tomorrow if I have time. *Ow.... back still hurts* Man I'm occupied....

Just write up about what's special about Boxy War, like the game play, the awsome flags, and things like that.

Server Reviews

I'm going to start reviewing servers and post the reviews on BZJournal. Anyone who wishes to get your server reviewed please post here. Also, please type a brief description of your server and what's special about it. Thank you.

Do you mind to be reviewed first?

This plugin would probably drive me nuts trying to dodge it (if possible!) Though still, this is a great idea. It might work for a map I'm thinking of making.

HTR isn't much fun, but you wouldn't get hit as much unless you're the rabbit or the server allows "teamkilling" as what the game calls it.

I killed quite a few genos and to-be genos on the map version before the current one (I call it 2.1.0) It was easy then, but these days trying to GM someone has been way harder. I must ask, what in this version makes GM harder? I'm guessing that it's because the 4 walls in the center are a lot bigg...

I have this problem if I use Ubuntu (any version with BZFlag 2.0.4) Live CD. I pop the disk in, use Synnaptics to install BZFlag 2.0.4 (the only available), and it does that.

My story...

I just like to go into Boxy War and just GM people on a ledge. That's why I'm called GMMan. Simple as that. Found GMs the best tool to hit people.

Umm.. yes it has to do with it...

I would like to differ about the point on video card does not affect network. If you have a intergrated graphics or a card without a GPU, all the work of graphics gets diverted to the CPU. If the CPU is working on graphics as well as network data, it's gonna develop lag because it can't process the ...

Here's a great all-in-one mouse keybind I've come up with. Note: To use this binding you must have a scroll wheel. Left mouse button/Right mouse button: Fire Up scroll: Jump Middle click: Identify/lock GM Down scroll: Drop flag Note 2: Don't scroll up too much or you will jump, land, and jump again....

I know, but...

I know my methord is overkill, but what I don't want is people joining when it's not their time to. I don't want to manually kick people when I log on while other people are waiting to get on to the server.

P. S. What isn't feasible? Server, map, registration or all three?

Try BZManager

BZManager can keep track of your buddies. It's on the second tab. You just have to setup the program, add buddies by rightclicking, Add, and typing in your buddy's callsign. The bad thing about it is that it relies on the listserver. If the LS is down, BZManager's buddie list wouldn't work.

That's not what I meant

Coming back to this topic I posted about 15 days back. What I mean isn't that I want to join a league (I don't play all day and probably will miss tournaments), what I mean is people fight each other around the world together. You just have to join the game at a specific time without belonging to a ...

BZFlag World Cup (or whatever you like to call it)

I had an idea about a week ago that there should be an annual tournament for all BZFlag players to compete with each other in a super big and fast server. There could be a FFA competition and a CTF competition. I'm wondering if this kind of thing had been discussed before, so before I write a whole ...

Lag, kick, processing power, and intergrated graphics

I was playing BZFlag this noon and experienced unexpected kicks. I recently installed Google Web Accelerator. I think it's its problem. When I got on a server (Boxy War Laser Snippings) in a few ms I get a "Your lag is too high (354ms)" warning. After a few times the server kicked me. I noticed if m...
