Yeah, I did read it. I just think that almost anything would be better than editing code by hand. Also, I hate compiling source code (unless I could do it using KDevelop).

BZWorkbench RPM for Fedora 8

I was wondering if there was an RPM of BZWorkbench for Fedora 8. If there is, could somebody point me to it? If not, could somebody please make one? I would greatly appreciate any help.

No, it isn't weird. Linux is just far superior to Windows in all ways. Especially Fedora. Fedora is great! Linux is not superior in all ways. While stability and the 'free' price tag is really nice, it's not prefect for everything. No operating system is perfect, and they all have things they do be...

I have the mouse box huge, the radar big and not transparent, and lines trailing the shots. I guess I didn't need to say that, because the picture is right here. Also, in case you're wondering, the map is the one I'm making now.

I don't know any of those languages you listed. Also, I have some nice books on Python already. I will probably just start from scratch and make a program that can do all the functions of the current BZAdmin, but make it have a nice GUI. As I said before, it will be a long time until I can start, so...

The problem is that I already know some Python and don't really want to learn C++. Plus, if they could make a BZFlag client with Python that allows you to play the game, then it shouldn't be too hard to make one that just allows you to change server variables and chat. I might even try using C++, bu...

GUI for BZAdmin

In 2005, RPG said that they should make a GUI for BZAdmin. I agree with him, and once I learn enough Python, I will try to make this improved GUI. I know it will take a lot of work, and I probably won't even know enough Python for about a year or so to even try to start. However, when I know enough,...

I have a tip:

Stealth is quite useful. It stops people with Guided Missile from locking on to you. Use it when people are GM-ing you over and over again.

PZ as a flag is pretty specialized, and its "special" properties aren't generally that useful. To be honest, I'd rather it be dropped from the game. Agreed. The only thing I've ever seen it properly used for is the zombie mode, and to be honest that was too complicated to really catch on. I know so...

So basically they can make somebody an admin without having to give him the password and risking having him tell the password to his friends.

I use a really, really old Logitech cordless mouse. It often malfunctions, but I still like it more than corded mice. For some reason, the cord always caught on stuff and made it hard for the mouse to stay still.
