This is a mapside/clientside (correct me if
im wring) issue, mac and windows users can also get stuck, It has to do with the physics of the game. NOT your OS it can also happen on maps other than "The Two Tanks"

As AVM said, best way is to get Above him a good couple units.

2 units or less it is near impossible to kill either of you, if that's the case, drop to the ground and hunt him about 2 minutes later, if you want techniques, learn your own, they will work better than trying out written ones

a recent one would be the pac-man map, try and search for labyrinth as well.

What are you talking about CBG? Have you ever even played that map in question? It is a plug-in that they die when they go to the edge of the map at sea.

Flags in CTF

I know a lot of you like flags and all, but in a CTF, when flags are added, it tends to become more FFA like. Some exceptions are Viper and the two tanks But even then, most people are trying to get the highest score, not the most captured flags Your thoughts? Should we Have more no-flag CTF? Should...

Well Rank doesn't really matter now, does it?

You area more skilled mapmaker than most in the BZFlag community, because most of us don't even make maps

Sometimes I wonder if the 3D aspects of the game even matter , except in a few instances.

I'm pretty sure most of us are going to disagree with you
But it is what makes bzflag good.

Most
of us can't use radar to rico off pyramids, as †hey show up as boxes in the current mode


There are many other factors against and for your argument.

But i think most of us like the radar how it is

Congratulations, [note i even took the time to spell it fully]

Looks VERY Promising considering that its a CTF, if it was FFA, it wouldn't work out, I'm still not sure it would be playable, but if it isn't We [someone] could fix it.
