I think that with the exceptions noted by SGI (unless it's a different read: better, implementation), that they're great ideas. I would definitely _not_ kick the admin that did the kicking, perhaps they're there simply as an observer -- taking care of the admin duties? I dunno, just seems contrary t...

patlabor221 tried to explain to me once the culling mechanism that bz uses, and iirc, indicated that it is extremely inefficient. I don't know whether that has been modified for the new code base (oc trees and what not), but that should give everyone a boost fps wise (making the larger / more comple...

ah, well then blast, let me add this:
I run at 1600x1200x32 @ 85 hz, and all my quality settings are maxed. I also run the win high-res client for the above measurements.

Specs:
Athlon XP 2100+, 1G ram, GeForce Ti4800 w/ 128M Ram (iirc)

It depends on whether or not I've got vsync limits enabled. For example, if I do limit it, then obviously my fps is limited to the vsync of my monitor. If I unlock vsync limits (in windows), or use my linux client, then it goes anywhere from ~80-199 (depending on the map). If I have time, I'll try i...

Here's a quick thought: if you have such a massive problem with bzflag, or the developers, please grab some source or (GASP!) write your own, free, online 3d tank battle game, and show us your superior coding / project management skills. I.E. put up or shut up. One more negative or derogatory word o...

depends what OS you use. I use the trusty (or crusty, depends who you are) import command from the imagemagick proggy (linux). I think Patlabor uses the Alt+PrintScreen technique for windows.

razz,
can you give a little more specifics about your particular issue? If it's the 'log in 2ce' thing, then really the only way to solve that is with a cookie blowout, since the board has moved.

Please let us know more details on the issue(s) you're having.

There is no conversion involved, just building a .deb specifically for your system.

IIRC, the person who's been doing the debian goodness is either tupone, bzgirl, or perhaps noodleman? Not sure, really, but Patlabor prob. knows.

xine is independent of whatever desktop manager you're using. As was stated before, if you have any sound apps open while you try to run bzflag, bzflag will not be able to open the /dev/dsp device to play audio. You can start bzflag from the command line, and then quit. Then look right below the lin...

As is typical of the BZflag development team -- the Windows version source code does not compile in Microsoft Visual C++ V6. Problems with socklen_t* and stranscmp (which supposedly is only needed for the MacOS). And, the project structure the BZflag development team has established is retarded. Ot...

fluxbox also has weird behavior when doing transparent window moves (at least on my system it does). Flux is a great little WM, if you can deal with it's quirks.

it's a matter of focus, iirc. It seems that fluxboxes' window focus model is odd, and if you don't have the window managed by flux (I always run in windowed, as opposed to fullscreen mode), then the brightness works ok. If you run it out of a terminal, then you'll have to click on the window title b...
