The same thing happened to me with Ducati once. Just all in a sudden. I did a traceroute, and it turned out that the route hit a dead-end at some point. Didn't make much sense to me ... the problem cleared up after 4-5 days and all was good again. Give it a try and see. In Windoze, run this: tracert...

Problem solved (twice). esd was the problem, as well as my ignorance :) Fix #1: run bzflag via esddsp, like: "esddsp bzflag". esddsp channels the sound device resources to the specified program. Thank you david_v for that suggestion. Fix #2: compile bzflag from source instead of using the rpm binary...

arrrrrgl! :? I take it back, sound is unavailable again. Even doing the same thing (removing the config file) doesn't fix it. And, I guess switching qualiy to medium wasn't the problem either. It's just that when I tried that the first time, that's when I lost sound. But now that it's gone again - i...

Ah ha! I found it. I removed my config file so that all was set back to defaults, and sound was working again. When I swtch the GUI 'quality' option from high to medium, that's when I lose sound. Perhaps this is a bug in 10.4 ---------------------- Thx for the help, orchid. I didn't know about alsa,...

Sound problem on Linux

Arrrg, sound stopped working in my Linux client :x It WAS working, but now sound/volume shows as 'unavailable' under the options menu. AFAIK, there are no other apps using sound, I have even rebooted and gone right into the client, but still no sound. The only thing that I can remember doing recentl...

Thanks, Grumbler. This seems like a good idea that should be discussed. It could be difficult to get teams to be 'fair' about this. A team with bad karma may become vengeful and vote negative to their opponents. Perhaps it could be left to a commitee, or the entire league to vote/assign karmas to te...

Yes, it is still irc.freenode.net. I may not show up on the list of servers, just add it. There is also a new channel #bzleague, which is more suited for league stuff, so as to offload some of the #bzflag traffic for the developers. What irc program are you using ?

He he. Didn't know it was brought up before. Actually, after thinking about it a bit, perhaps it would be better to base it on a week's inactivity, as certainly some teams can't play every day. Perhaps -10 points if no match is played for a week. Meeting? Ya, let's do. We have a new irc channel #bzl...

Just had a thought.

How about if teams lose 2 points for each day of inactivity, up to a limit. Maybe 2 bonus points for each extra match played per day (win or lose). Or something similar.

Could make the league more active.

OK, we have played 9 official matches with HOW and what, 2 or 3 'fun' ones? I see your point with the league in general Carny, but I don't see how it applies to us - we have played more than 1/3 of our total official matches with HOW. And, although I probably caught you at a bad time, you did refer ...

Well, I had to add this: I'm sorry that you are upset about this Carny, the league will miss you.

But, geez, we can't always match everytime you ask - we have already played your team twice as many times as any other team in the league. To say we have no balls seems ridiculous to me.

Ok, I'll post my opinion, since I am involved in this. Last nite, Carny said our team [EEZ] had no balls for not playing an official match with them. Well, we have played HOW 9 times, ProXS 5 times, Tex twice, etc. We have played 21 matches with teams ranked higher or much higher than us, and 3 with...

Another thing that changed is the -mp arg if you specify teams, observers are now included (5 numbers i/o 4):
-mp {rouge,red,green,blue,purp,obs}
