I want to jump in! Please tell me how!

Okay! I found on sourceforge that I just should make my changes. But before I apply everything to some tarball I found, I'd love to be sure to use the proper one. I want to add the hatswitch of joysticks/gamepads to the possible keys. Can someone please contact me or reply here what I should do in o...

I like that one! I also made an enhancement to use both analog joysticks my gamepad has. The one that is configured works with your enhancements. The other one gets precedence when it's used but is reduced to half the speed. in SDLJoystick.cxx: void SDLJoystick::getJoy(int& x, int& y) x = y = 0; if ...

Thanks! That helped me a lot!

Now all I'm missing is the "Hatswitch". I bought a Thrustmaster FireStorm Dual Analog 3 just yesterday and it has a nice D-Pad which is identified by "Joystick Tester" as a "Hatswitch".

Wouldn't it be greate one could use these 4-8 additional buttons too?

Re: Compiling - OSX

I've just compiled BZ 2.0.8 on Mac OSX 10.4(.7) using the xCode project file. (it's pretty easy btw. but the documentation is sparse!) Yes? I didn't find that easy. I found it impossible. I failed with an error in info.plist. Did you simply start the XCODE file? I did so and it complained about it ...

I like your ideas, Sky King, except for the kill ratio. No wonder as my score is always below Zero ;) So I made the propsal for the time played since last TK. If you're unable to kill anyone like I am, and I think most newbies are, you are not punished too hard if you play several minutes without TK...

I'd count that as one TK.

Can we do something about TK... More & More TK each day

Hi! Today was the worst TK day ever... Some were simply plain stupid noobs who didn't read what they were told, some were simply plain stupid guys on a rage, cursing in foreign (German) languge etc. I thought it might be a good idea to double the respawn times of TKs each time they TK. Each minute t...

Might be he cheated. Is someone willing to test? Is someone able to test? We need a world with solid ground and just BU and Laser flags.

BU on solid ground - bug or feature

I was holding a Laser facing a Burrow both of us standing on a bridge. So he wasn't burrowed. My Laser went right through didn't hurt him at all. Bug or Feature?

That was just 2 hours ago... I had a stealth and hided right below a GM camper's favourite place just behind a fake wall. I did not have to wait long and the first GM arrived heading for his camping place. I shot him right in the eye ;-)

How do you like this idea? Black Peter Flag

A Black Peter flag is a really bad flag, but maybe fun to have nevertheless. It's a flag you can't dropp. It's even not timed. You have to either die or pass it on to someone else in order to get rid of it. While you're Black Peter you are as fast as a Thief. You can't be shot except by Super Bullet...

kool, and Im just wondering is your avatar from South Park by any chance? This is me after playing BZ-Flag for several hours in South Park ;) To be honest: It's a Skeeve-Look-Alike created with South Park Studio . I tried to make it look as much like me as possible. It's a bit too much hair though....

Not really a story

There is not much of a story behind my callsign. I simply like Rober Lynn Asprin's books about Myth Inc. where Skeeve is the main Character. And then there is the coincidence that my real name, in english, is just one letter shorter and swaps k for t. I also use my callsign as a Nickk in several oth...

So you're one of those putting me always to the bottom of the score list with values of -30 and less?
