Basically, what we're hearing is that you aren't interested in doing any work whatsoever, but want us to do it for you instead. That's fine, but don't get upset if nobody does! If you were on the Linux side of your hard drive, you could probably find someone with a compiled shared object, but only a...

Hate to tell you, but yes, if you're going to compile a plugin from source code, you will need to get a basic understanding about how libraries and compilation work. Source code is human readable instructions that is written by a programmer. Compiling source code means that you run the source code t...

You're spanking the stats on my laptop which sorta plays the game, so I imagine that you can. (16mb ATI M6 LY with open source drivers) Just make sure you have the right drivers installed.

Most of the time, you can not talk on a Hepcat server if you are not registered. Mostly because of problems with spammers.

As I've said previously, setting up a bzflag server is a non-trivial task. It's not that hard, but it isn't something as easy as a few mouse clicks and you're in business, either. To anyone thinking of setting up a server: You REALLY REALLY REALLY need to read through the wiki! If you don't understa...

The config files can be put anywhere, so long as you specify the path to them when you run bzfs. Personally, I have a directory called bzconf where I put all my config files, group files, and user files. That way, you can use a ./ relative path to refer to your other files from your conf file. For e...

Sharing group moderator responsibilities

I'm working on getting a Pillbox League group set up, and am wondering if there is a way to share moderator duties with another league admin. I check this forum regularly, and can add people to the group as requests come in, but just in case I have to go away for a while, or mouth off the the wrong ...

Thanks, anomaly that looks more like the commands I remember from my Windows days.

Do be careful though, if you are running a version of BZFlag that isn't 2.0.8, the directory won't be the same. (on the other hand, if you're not running 2.0.8, why the heck not?)

This is one of the nice things about the fair CTF plugin. You immediately drop the flag if the other team has too small a number of players.

Now, if there was only an auto kill for those guys who sit there and repeatedly try to pick up the flag.

Hey, not a bad start. Some suggestions: First, you might want to proofread the page as you add things, as there are a number of spelling errors, etc. I'm not a Windows guy, but I'm pretty sure that you can save worlds with a .bzw file extension and still edit them in notepad or wordpad. You might wa...

Especially that command line bit. From your posts, I think you are a bit confused about how maps work. ALL maps come in the form of plain text. I don't care what you made it in. They might import images, but the base map is a big text file. To start a server, you need to be opening a command prompt....

Huh, I'm on Ubuntu 64 Feisty too. I just installed bzflag from Apt. Zero problems here. (AMD 4400+ X2 processor) If you're installing from source, check which version of GCC you're using.

Not to bash bzedit, because it does what it was built for at the time, but it's pretty much useless for making anything beyond squares and pyramids.

I'm using BZEdit, and I have no clue what syntax is. I mean open up the resulting map in a text editor like notepad, and have a look at it. And what do you mean "elsewhere" on my localhost.

Have you checked - with a fine tooth comb - the syntax of your maps? Try commenting out any code that might be questionable.

Also, have you tried using a map that you KNOW works elsewhere on your localhost?
