I'm sorry, I still don't understand. Is users.txt a blank file? Yes, it would be. As well as the password database. You do need stuff in your group database, that define the permissions for each group. EDIT: I should add that a password database is not required . It just allows you to use the /regi...

You need to specify a group database, user database, and password database, with the -groupdb, -userdb, and -passdb options, respectively. Though, local groups are not recommended anymore. The developers and server owners generally recommend that you request global groups and add people via the "Use...

Just /setgroup the particular permission with a minus sign in front of it. Ie, -say , which will remove the say permission from that user. Group files do not have any problem with interchanging permissions and groups, so that is why this works. Just tested it, and it doesn't seem to work. /setgroup...

I'm not sure how to remove a certain permissions on a player-to-player basis (although I've heard it can be done), but you can create another group that denies the perm, and use /setgroup to add the user to that group (effectively removing that permission) when desired. Just /setgroup the particula...

Either way, you'll have to download it. This means either downloading the binary distribution (which includes BZFlag, BZAdmin, and BZFS) or the source (which you have to compile). If you download the source, you can use the configure flags --disable-client and --disable-bzadmin to only build BZFS an...

Can you tell me how two team HTF is any different than two team CTF?

Both teams will still be concentrating on capturing a flag, regardless of it's color.

Though, if you want, use the HTF plugin distributed in the source as an example.

2.1.13 is not the current development version. There was a recent protocol break, bringing it up to 2.1.14. No, it's not likely many more will be hosting on these development versions. That is because you must build it yourself or specifically ask a developer to build you one. Once beta builds start...

I guess if you could, you would use the computer's MAC address. Well, the client would have to tell the server it's MAC address, so it could be spoofed to whatever the person wants. If someone didn't want to mod BZFlag to manually spoof their MAC, most routers allow people to change their MAC addre...

The Start Server menu within BZFlag is not recommended for servers. It's buggy more of the time than it's not.

I've been using two images there for at least a year. Never had a problem. That doesn't mean it's legal .
