Yeah, I don't think you can capture a video using WME. I believe you already have to have a video file for that to work. And no, I don't have access to a Mac. WME9 definitely has the option. I'll find where it is next time I boot Windows. Under Windows I use CamStudio in combination with ffdshow tr...

And he can't work out how to add a -window switch to the bzflag entry in his application menu. I can't help him either, since as a Windows and Linux user, I don't know where stuff is on the iMac (and I'm in a different country). I tried writing a bash script to start bzflag in a window for him, but...

Command+Tab will work in windowed mode

Lately I have been having trouble with lag. I attribute most of this to my ISP, (they see a problem but have yet to find a resolution).

May I ask you, please, did you have to change
anything to get it through compilation? If so, it
would be nice to know what you did.

Thanks,
