I'm just plainly saying that the button should serve some actual purpose, not to just a dummy page.

I still don't really get this. But it would be useful to newbies to learn not to teamkill. Perhaps it could be like the Shield flag which tells you that you've just got shot by someone; instead, it should say Don't Kill Teammates like it is now. Drawback: some people don't learn.

Average... It doesn't protect you as much. If the person you was trying to shoot you was facing you, you'd get shot as normal. Also, I think the name for the flag is wrong. I would consider Narrow to be named Paper Bag. I don't really care for this idea. It just make it complicated. One thing it'd b...

Yes... Most of the time you can either blame it on your Internet equipment or you config. :roll: My additional advice is to make a backup of your config if you've edited it a lot of times. It's a big hassel to go back and edit everything.

I do agree with Sky's first post. Too many newbies gets into Boxy, TKs, get angry messages, never come back. I guess experienced players just don't like newbies messing up their play. It would be a good idea to have practice servers. And here's my idea: how about implementing catagories and display ...

True. You can do that with a bit of tweaking, and it's pointless putting another flag just to annoy people. :twisted:

Err... Download time: takes time to download 3 kb of images, plus the processing time needed to display the image. Not a big deal, but it's just annoying, plus it takes up server space (5 kb?).

I agree with Spazzy. Maybe this flag could be a 3- or 4-shot flag and will automatically drop. Or perhaps if you drive over any other good flags your current flag will auto-drop. And no, I don't care for those other little flags, since they don't appear in Boxy and I mainly play in Boxy.

If you're going to use the view angle as a shot guide, that won't work because then the view angle can be changed.

Umm... Would you rewrite it so I can understand you? From what you wrote it seems that you want a flag that lets the tank shoot both frontwards and backwards when the trigger is pressed. It counts as two shots, and if you don't have another two shots left, you can't shoot, not even forwards. I'd thi...
