A pastebin for /savemsgs

So a few months ago, I started working on a pastebin-like website for /savemsgs log files. Introducing Project Roconut ! http://roconut.projects.allejo.io/ The BZFlag client has the ability to save your console log through the /savemsgs command. However, by default, this saved log will keep the ANSI...

Re: Attention Tanks: All Hands On Deck! - We'd like your feedback

Any other support for or against this map? Judging from last season's stats, it's tough for new maps to get any traction so I'd hate to add yet another map into the rotation for it to receive little to no attention.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Alright, let me explain how and why things were implemented as they were. The specification that was followed was the one posted here and was "frozen" when I started working on the feature (meaning any future updates here would be moot as I had already started following the spec). The ability for th...

Attention Tanks: All Hands On Deck! - We'd like your feedback

Over the past few months, we've been secretly working to implement the All Hands On Deck game mode on HiX and now, we would like your feedback. Before I continue, I'd just like to warn all of you: even though this is HiX, all of your current strategies and tactics will be practically useless. All Ha...

Re: bzflag.allejo.io servers

Downtime for all my servers is scheduled for Saturday, December 2nd 2017 from approximately 12:00AM-2:00AM PST. A good number of BZFlag servers will be affected so that's why I'm doing it at a time with less activity.

Thank you for tanking with bzflag!

Why don't you use services such as Google Forms or SurveyMonkey? Would probably make things easier for people to fill out the survey without having to publicly respond or send you a PM.

It's not a bad idea and is feasible to make. I take it that this data would only be tracked for registered players? Tied directly to their BZIDs?

Re: Create Random world weapons

As for world size, it's a BZDB variable; there's a function for that too. There's also the API header file which is the authoritative source until the official documentati...

As blast said, we don't distribute Linux binaries. What most Linux users do is build it from source following the instructions in the dedicated Linux README.

Are you referring to sending messages? Are you talking about not being able to bind the key to actions?

Does this mean you're doing Shift + ß and the question mark doesn't appear in the chat?

Re: Editor Highlight Codes

If you use Sublime Text 3, I've submitted a more up to date syntax definition than my original attempt. If you use ST3, chances are you have Package Control installed so just look for "BZW" and you'll be set.

Could you elaborate more on the game mode? Is it similar to Counter Strike's bomb defusal? etc. It's likely possible to create something with a plug-in.
