for me 1-3 jitter is reasonable, certainly not 20-23, that's when the tank starts to appear to jump around the map.

Take a look at there /help files, they have a list of admins and cops


as for when they are on, they can't really plan when they are going to be on BZ, and when they are not...Just hope that jumping jill doesn't come back and mess up your game, as for getting it down, just do a poll for a flagreset

less registered players...

it has come to my attention that most of the bzflag population doesn't know how to register here, Would it be possible to let them know that they can get more powers if they register at the site, most of the time i find out, is during a poll, half the people are going "how do i vote" and then we tel...

And on top of this, it would then be a very simple thing to modify the radar renderer to just stick a barrel on one end of the tank. That's not what i'm saying, instead of a square, could we have a rectangle to represent the tank instead of a square...and you still wouldn't be able to tell which wa...

Tank Size on Radar...

You know how the radar height system makes a box around your tank? instead of it's true size of a rectangle?

Could it somehow be implemented where it shows you the ACTUAL size of your tank? although this had little effect on major servers, on skill servers it would be somewhat useful

Thoughts?

Ummm, are you sure that's supposed to be a pdf?

Anyways, it's just a random bit of code, any reason you wanted us to have it?

Maybe it will turn us into tanks if we eat it :D:D:D

During the evening, Are you able to connect to an IP of the server?

I used to have this problem until i switched my ISP, the only get around was to ping the server hostname and typing in the IP manually, best of luck

You should add a barrier to the bases so they can't shoot inside, it's too easy to spawn kill, make it a non rico barrier

look at your taskmanager, and see if anything OPENS while in BZflag, Of course, when something closes, that might also be an issue, as it can steal the focus as well. You could eliminate the source code that has the windowed version, but that is a i littler more difficult

There is no way to tell if it is a pyramid or not, (IF, you've never played it before and was only looking at radar) I believe you are referring to the "Enhanced" radar.
