Would the EMP and the FlashBang be able to "block" GM shots? If so, it would be an extremely useful anti-GM flag other than ST.

Percentages on rabbit hunt

Does anyone out there have any idea as to what the percentages mean on an htr server?

Yeah, the BU settings concerning speed and turn radius make BU unstoppable except for TH or V (or GM if your unlucky). You can easily avoid the tanks with these flags, and blow up all the rest. BU is the only way I can make any kills on Mofo... :P

If you want to play with just your friends, you can download a map from any server and start your own private server.

To download the map: Connect to the server, push esc, options, save world.

I realize that its the owner's decision. I also realize that someone's IP can tell you something about them. However, it would take a really good hacker's skills to be able to use that IP for something other than BZFlag use. Granted, there are hackers that play BZFlag, but they are in the extremely ...

GM Tower

Here's a map that I made largely using iBZEdit and hand coding. I'm working on getting it hosted, but I would like to see what you all think about it. Since I'm not on my computer at home right now, I can't post screenies, but here is the map file:

I believe that all admins, be it cops or even minicops, should have the adminMessageReceive perm. I mean, who's it going to harm? It would allow them to see the IPs as well as talk on the admin channel. It wouldn't really give them any more power, so it wouldn't be dangerous. So what is wrong with g...

There is another server that is up occassionally during the American evenings, "Speed Skate by Tedius," which has similar settings concerning friction, but is not a random map.

It would make a lot more sense than turning off the shootthrough function o...

Tadd would have to add his special side texture to the map that lists the server administrator and host with every map that you have, but other than that, tadd would be a great place to host. He has plenty of bandwidth to spare.

List server outages

Is there a way in which we can know when a scheduled outage is to take place? I mean, the list server has reportedly been undergoing some upgrades, but right now, you never know when it is scheduled to be turned off.

Is this a server password? Or is it your own callsign password? If its the server, then you have the "-passwd" command wrong. Its "-password." Also, is this a part of a map file? It doesn't look like a conf file. Please give us some more information.

I think that rolling_blunder has it right. GM is very hard to use in Boxy because there really is no easily accessible high platform to use it from, and it is very easy to get lasered from on the ground. Creating a GM tower would solve this by creating a high platform but making it vunerable. I like...

Macs seem to have their own firewall. Mine issues crazy Denial of Service attacks on even internal requests. Currently, my Terminal cannot connect to the Internet on its own. Macs seem to be the hardest kind of computer to connect to.
