All that hype

I know that there have been wild rumors going around about how there is something truly great being created in the Tedius labs, people have been speculating about the kind of map I must have been working on with my time. People have been saying, It'll be more fun than "Quidditch, Tanks on Brooms!" a...

Louman's Pandemonium, and yes, it is cool.

Someday I'll get around to adding music to the video for you PETER. Some video effects and variety in the cuts would be even better.

Nice collection.

Are you trying to run BZFlag on XServe for some reason, if so, what model? What version OSX Server are you using? Do you mean "bzflag" or "bzfs"? Have you run bzflag from normal OS X?

OS X Server is basically OS X with a boatload of serving tools thrown in. I would guess that there is no better and more secure platform to run bzflag on than on OS X Server. (cue OS flamewar.. here) To answer the question definitively, I just copied the binary to a PPC XServe running OS 10.4 Server...

blast speaks the truth. Get rid of the commas and you'll probably be all set. I was testing something else when I was messing with the safety option.

It seems like it would work, and it sounds like a good idea to me. I think a simpler solution than deducting points for a bank deposit would be to deposit all the points accumulated when a tank leaves. That way you would not have to subtract points from the score, and I don't see why you couldn't do...

The problem is in line 509.

Code: Select all

pyramid
name Pyramid
	position 0 0 400
	rotation 0
	size 3 3 8e+007

That would make a pyramid that is 80 million units tall, which may be a tad excessive.
