You can press the Ctrl-C key combo to stop it within the Terminal.

I would wait to use more advance ways of starting/stopping/restarting servers until you learn the basics.

Keep pressing F8 until you are in that mode (it says at the top of the screen what your current mode is).

As for A Meteorite, I don't quite know why you are telling people if they are allowed to use the map and not Winny, who is after all the map author. Because Winny and I have already discussed this. We have been eye-to-eye on this map for months. To be honest, it's disappointing to see people releas...

No offense, but do you think you can model and texture like that?

OK. Didn't think so.

You said you compiled BZFlag, so I will assume you are on a *nix system. If you did make install , and left it at the defaults, $PREFIX is usually /usr/local . Specify this when starting BZFlag from the command prompt: -directory $PREFIX/share/bzflag For instance, if left at the defaults ( $PREFIX =...

You may have too many flags. Windows chokes on too many flags and will refuse connections.

Please post your config/map area that deals with flags.

Maybe you could even simply add a line that says "capture" to the code of an object, that line would automatically make the object translucent and passable in addition to "capturable". That would severely limit the complexity of a map if you only have one option to do something. These types of thin...

You must port forward it to your computer if you have a router, see portforward.com for more details and how-tos.

No, that's not the problem, Joe-Schmoe.

This is not an issue of BZFlag supporting the program. Google Sketchup Pro can be used fine as a map editor, since it can export to OBJ, but the free one can not.

If you export to OBJ, you can use BZFlag's included modeltool program to transform the OBJ into a BZW.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! It is, if you want a BZFlag as we currently know it, on a PDA. PDAs simply don't have enough horsepower to play BZFlag remotely like on a PC. Even then if you did have enough horsepower, you'd need to find a PDA with hardware that has 3D acceleration (not happening). The on...

You probably accidentally silenced everyone. Try pressing "k" and type in "*", without the quotes. It wasn't corrupt, though. I just hit some button ingame and got a "All Messages Disabled" message, or something similar. Also, I could still get server messages. And no, I don't have it. Sorry. Ahem,...

Hmmm, that's very weird indeed. Have you tried deleting or moving your config.cfg? BZFlag will auto-generate a new one if it's not there and maybe your config became corrupt. You can find where config.cfg is located, depending on your OS, via the wiki . Ok, that worked. Although, on the chance that...

Perhaps you turned off messages in the console. There should be four tabs, iirc, right above the console, and the selected one shows what kind of chat is set to come through. Try pressing Shift-F1, Shift-F2, etc. to see if you can bring them back. That's not the problem, though. The console and rad...
