contructive cursing Alright. This has completely overloaded my brains. How can cursing be constructive? Well let me translate for you... Say the enemy has my team's flag. Instead of saying "Cherrio mate, they stole our flag. Jolly good day it is!" ... I would say "Hey [insert favorite swear words h...

BZFlag.org being down....

Well I've noticed that "BZflag.org" is down. What's really weird is that now both my standard Win32 2.0.2 clients arent working. It loads but then freezes before it gets to the main menu. All I see is is the chat console. Coincidence? You tell me. I'm gonna give my linux a shot once as I'm done burn...

::Cough:: I think the filters are put in place to remove any socializing that might arise. On some of the more popular servers, I have to keep my trap shut if I dont want to piss off the admins. ::Grumble grumble:: It's because I'm a cop at Planet Mofo and I allow contructive cursing... player haters!

Or if you just use Firefox exclusively and dont download junk (p2p, IM clients, toolbars, etc; open source excluding) you should be fine. I dont run antivirus/spyware because they hog too many resources. I used to remove spyware for a living, it's far more complicated then what I like to call "simpl...

I originally signed up as "The Passion of the Tank." When the filters were still up (I think) it said I wasnt allowed to have this screen name. I first started playing when that Mel Gibson movie came out. I soon started saying "The Passion of [insert word here]" quite often... I still do. When the f...

Re: Language

I also recognize that BZ and respective servers are NOT chat rooms. Well it's not a chatroom but some of us like to be social while playing. If we werent social, I might as play a single player game. I think you guys are taking the whole language thing too seriously. There's more language in an Ele...

That "munchkin" word is becoming quite popular in BZworld. At least I've been hearing it a lot lately.

I'm glad to report that I can now own on secretplace. 8)

Another thing besides the whole graphics issue is that the main servers have too many good players. I remember when I first started... I wou...

Suicide Tanks

A-Delusion, others, and I are currently tinkering with his new server. The question I bring up is, is there a way lower the countdown on the self-destruct? I think making that instant or near instant would be a good check and balance against Geno.

Suggestions please?

I agree with Legolas. There is different skills required on different servers. For example I go to overlord once in a while to brush up on the dodging skills. Planet Mofo is my favorite map by far. It's simplicity is something that shouldnt be overestimated. I love that place. Just gotta learn how t...

A Friend in Need

Dunno if this is the place to ask for this type of help but here it goes: A_Fluffy_Kitten has forgotten his password and need to change it. The problem is that the email account that he used to sign up no longer works. He wants to use his exact screen name. It's not an imposter that wants that name....

Musical Tanks

I dont know about you guys but I love playing BZflag while blasting some good music. I've always wanted a feature in BZflags where it show you what song is playing in your Winamp (or whatever you're using). It could also show you what others are listening to. It would be so cool if someone could dev...
