V faster than V?

How can it be that someone chasing me and having a V-flag can be faster than I am having a V-flag too?

I don't know where it is located, but usually it should help to make every directory world readable & executable and every file world readable. Also any executable should have execute rights for the world. I think this will help: find /Applications/BZFlag-2.0.8.app/ -perm +0100 -print0 | xargs -0 ch...

So it looks like you're using the second stick to scale the output of the first one,
Nope. If the second one is used, the first one is ignored. If the second one is moved all the way up, the tanks travels at half it's maximum speed.

Simple, encrypt the password per computer hardware information. It would require you to have the exact same computer hardware to do it... I mean how many people know how to get that information? 1. If you use the Hardware as a key you have to a) be able to generate such a key on *any* Platform (Win...

Re: Newbie controls question

I don't use the keyboard for the "important" tasks. I bought a Gamepad. (See attached Picture) As you can see there are "Shoulder" buttons (2 on each side) which can be pressed with the index finger. So I can reach with my right index finger: Lock & Drop Left: Jump & Restart Below the gamepad are 2 ...

Yesterday I tried "progressive" and I, as a bad player, didn't like it very much. I need good flags to be able to hit others. The best I could reach was level 2 and that was even more frustrating than playing on a standard, crowded server.

I disagree: Abstain can also be: didn't notice a vote is going on.

OTOH: If the message persists, you can dismiss it with a "don't care" vote.

Why not make _gmTurnAngle "killer dependent"? Someone with a higher kill ration gets a value nearer to 1.2, someone (like me) with a negative value ;) get a value nearer to 0.75

Hi! I already posted it as source but I'm thinking about creating a patch with configurable options. The idea is the following: If you have a joystick or gamepad with more than 2 axes, you currently ca't really use the other 2 axes. But if you're playing with such a gamepad, you might have the same ...
