Re: Not all weapons should do 100% damage

So, if I were fork BZFlag.. #1 I (or someone else) would also have to setup a private list server, that is public REF = https://wiki.bzflag.org/Private_List_Server ? #2 While I get that the protocol would have to be changed, what is the limit on characters?

Re: Not all weapons should do 100% damage

At https://wiki.bzflag.org/Public_Server it talks about the Authentication Key and a link to http://my.bzflag.org/listkeys/ #1 While I get that the protocol will have to changed, would the modified server need the Authentication Key?

Re: Not all weapons should do 100% damage

Why would you even want that? If you want to balance or imbalance flag potency, you can do it already by adjusting server variables respective to the flags in question and keeping the idea of a single shot killing a tank. Because there are games you do not kill the other player's tank with a single...

Re: Not all weapons should do 100% damage

Ok. Before saying yes to the client/server mod and incompatible with other existing and future versions/servers, I have to ask: Would it be worth it to do this/that? Last check with-in BZFlag for 2.4.* there is/are 165 servers with 27 players and 6 obses. Unsure of GCWZ0221 and other versions of bzf...

Not all weapons should do 100% damage

I have this ideas that not all weapons should do 100% damage. If that is possible in native code, perhaps it could be done with a plug-in. Since I am not a programmer, I have no idea of how this would done to the T in the source code / writing my own plug-in. Sure I can follow directions and get cer...

Server List question - Protocol ID not starting with BZFS?

While at http://bzstats.strayer.de/servers/stats/?lang=en I noticed that BZFS is listed as the protocol and most of the servers on the list server ( http://my.bzflag.org/db/ ) start with BZFS, expect that there is/are some servers at rahab.fairserve.net that are listed as GCWZ0221.

Server List question - different version of bzflag

Currently in Bzflag, the list server list only servers that you can connect to.

But in for example OpenTTD, even while you can not connect to the sever - the list shows what version the server will only accept.

Why can't BZflag do the same?

Please and thanks
