yeah...try 1.7d or older and feel the charm of the old HUD, an option menu which is shorter than the weekly shopping list, guided missiles that sound like ordinay bullets, worlds that consist of cuboids and pyramids only ... and so on ... ;o)

Ralph Sorry for the late reply..but here is a short explanation of the different strength indices. While I'm using all cumulated session scores to calculate the current shown "strength index" (since October 2006), my.bzflag.org shows the highest and lowest strength indices measured (since 2003!).

Hi Ralph, thank you for your post. I hoped all field names would explain thereself. But you are right that I should had made clear what "strength index" means...seems I forgot this in the FAQs...sorry. The "strength index" is a rather simple way to show a player's strength. It's calculated with the ...

Well, the email field is really old.

When so many people are so confused...simply remove it from the menu. :o) No..seriously..renaming i...

From time to time (even when I don't have the time ^^) I feel I should add something new to the section " BZinfo ". In most cases it's some kind of information that comes out of the source code files. Therefore I'm writing a code snippet that extracts the needed stuff out of the source files and ins...

Wouldn't it had been better to ask Zongo if he would add this map/style to the existing 1vs1 League? Except the rating system it seems to be very similar/equal.

I mean...it's a nice site and so on, but isn't starting a new league kind of overkill? ;o)

There exists no older Windows client as far as I know. For IRIX: - IRIX_5.3-6.4---bzflag1.5a.tardist - IRIX_5.3-6.4---bzflag1.6a.tardist - IRIX_5.3-6.5---bzflag1.7b.tardist For Linux: - LINUXi386---bzflag1.7b.tgz Note, that I didn't test these releases. I just found them on my hd in my old BZ folder.

Re: my.bzflag.org - Player Stats is a joke now

My question is why do they have this list : http://my.bzflag.org/playerstats.php As you noticed this is not a site/list which can represent the player's real strength. In this case it's (I think so) more an interesting and funny ranking list. Futhermore, in the time this stats site was written, the...

Hiho, as written before, bzstats.strayer.de was a proof of concept only. During the last months I worked on the "real" BZstats which reached a point where it's useable now.

Well...IP and callsign are kinda equal. The only way to be sure about a player's identity is getting her/his bzID from the BZFlag server. This hasn't been implemented into the query message so far.
