I think that the flare and dazzle flags (or at least the effect the flag gives) have been suggested in earlier posts.

It may just be the angle of the screenies, but it looks like you only put the 2 and 2 together; you didn't raise the mofo portion so it can be on ground level. From the looks of it, most of the mofo portion is sitting below ground, inaccessible to players. :?

Maybe a known issue?

When I downloaded it and installed it on my PPC iMac G5, it opened, went to a black screen, and immediately closed.

...just to put out yet another bug :P

I like the map (it's soooo taxing on my puny vid card, though :P ), and you could decrease the fogDensity a little. It can still make for good play without fog or at least less fog.

Thanks! What do you mean by "put it up sometime" or "try putting it on a mofo server or on gnurdux"? Don't the owners of those servers have to choose a map and put it up themselves? What I meant was that the server owners of these servers (Optic Delusion and Cruel Dog, respectiv...

I'm sure you could write a plugin for that, but it would probably get annoying after a while... :?

As bzfs exists, though, that is not possible.

It could be that you do not have UDP enabled either... What other internet activities do you do? You could also WHOIS the server addresses to find a general location of those servers.... Finally, the european servers are marked by 1 of 2 descriptions. 1. They say "European server" in the d...

That did that to me with my iMac when I connected to my router and immediately opened bzflag. If you are running mac/linux, you need to see that you have aquired an actual external IP before opening bzflag. I don't know about windows, though....

Even in windowed mode (F1), though, you still can't move your mouse out of the bzflag window, making app-switching impossible. I don't know about F9-11, though.

RemovePerms

How do I utilize the removePerms permission in bzflag? For that matter, how do I use setPerms? I want to remove a single permission, but not remove that user from the whole usergroup. So, how do I do that?

Cupcake, one other idea is to get your display settings off of "low", as made apparent in your screenies. In the client, go to options, display settings, display quality, and try setting that to high or experimental. It makes things look a lot better.

No, unless your using blender wihth Teppic's tools, you would have to add the textures by hand. Before the "end" part of an object, just add this. Example: box name exampleBox position 100 100 100 size 100 100 100 rotation 0 addtexture /path/to/your/texture end As an alternative you can do...

I'm not sure if the DS's come with Wifi already installed inside of them. The DS is ready to connect to any router that supports 802.11g. The DS hosting ability would be small. As for an integrated map editor. That sounds *good*. Something simple (maybe a top-down block editor?) I wouldn't think th...

Really, all you would have to do is raise your map about 100 on the Z axis and have the "zone" world right below.

You spawn in an area full of PZ flags and a tele that doesn't link to anywhere. You can then drive through the walls and go shoot other "zoned" people up, since "zoned" bullets can kill "zoned" people. Also the "zoned" bullets act like Super Bullets, and you c...
