Bzflag evolved into a game played over the internet, albeit the design remains the way it was prior to it. Just like on the Internet, it was all designed with trusting everyone ( This i...

Re: BZFlag for an experiment

BZFlag was not designed to be played over the internet. Strange/odd. If you what you say is true, then why at https://www.bzflag.org/getting-started/ does it says BZFlag allows players to register their name, also known as their callsign. Some servers provide additional benefits for registered user...

Re: The current usage of BZAdmin

As to what the main thing(s) it is used for, points to a page at the bzflag wiki.

Bzflag wiki -> Client -> BZAdmin

I do not if anything could be added/removed to it as you requested.

As to why there is no link from Documentation or Help from the main site, I do not know for sure.

Re: F12 abuse, revisited

Hmm interesting.

Ok.

The plug-in should be fixed.

In the meantime while waiting for a fix I suggest either not using the plugin or telling users to make sure that they are dead before leaving the server if they intend to rejoin.

Please and thank you.

Why does need to use f12 to quit in the first place?

Likewise why does one need to use F5 to take a screenshot?

At Settings -> Audio Settings, it reports back for sound volume Unavailable.

Any ideas?
