What are the beta builds at beta.bzflag.bz/builds about? Are they connected with version 2.1.0?

I used trial and error and now have configured it to run from my thumb drive. Thanks, Vicious Muffin for helping.

Somewhat incorrect: you can kill them by squishing them beneath your tank, but it is very hard to do.

I've heard of it (January PC World), but I'm not willing to shell out $20 or was it $50 for that. Anyways, it's probably too big for my drive and probably won't run under my school's limited user accounts.

Me? I get heart attacks :D . Figuratively. It scares me to be chased by two people sitting by my side in the computer lab :roll: .

Configs on a thumb drive

Does anyone know how I can add a command switch to BZFlag so I can play it portably without moving this here and removing that? I frequently change between F: and G: drives and I also use Pegtop's PStart.

P. S. I think I accidentally misplaced this topic. It should be in the support section.

<Shift>-<Up> to do down, <Shift>-<Down> to go down. Look in your help menu on the BZFlag main menu.

You can go slower with <A>, but to make the bullet slower is an interesting idea. I like it. It could also explode for the same time a normal bullet would.

I don't know... The region thing might just be an overkill. I it doesn't really seem to matter where the server is. You usually just play. I know that there are no servers in my region (Sask., CAN). I recommend that instead of listing the regions, list servers according to popularity and then region.

I notice something... When I hover into the box for a forum it lightens a little bit, but then if I click in the box but not the link, nothing happens. Before the upgrade, if I click in the box, I was taken directly to that forum, no matter if I'm clicking the box or the link. I think that might be ...

That reminds me. Wait until you can see the game and then press <i>. If you press it before that, it won't do anything, until the client has connected to the server and is ready. It happens to me sometimes, but I just wait for the game to connect. If you don't get any change for about a minute, forg...

I consider myself good at GMs. I don't consider myself good at BZFlag in general. Hmm... I guess I'm stuck between good beginner and almost intermediate. But since I'm writing a BZFlag book, maybe I am medium... I'll ponder on that for an eternity.

On every server? Specify, please. I'm thinking that it has something to do with the connection, but I've never received a message so frequent unless you count the time with my DSL line.

I think that you have to try to wait a while before you can spawn. Try waiting 30 seconds and see if you can spawn. If you don't spawn, that probably indicates some kind of communication problem. Just wait for it, and let the client receive data about the server.

Missing Quick Reply?

I'm wondering if the quick reply had been removed or changed or something. I tried it to turn it back on in my profile, but then it reports that there's an error because the quick reply table couldn't be found. I have no idea what's going on and I think it was on sometime earlier this day.
