Re: DON'T LET BZFLAG DIE!! PLEASE READ THIS

... people were coming up with great ideas to keep it running, but no one EXECUTED. Ideas are cheap, anyone can have them but if they (the idea creators) aren't committed enough to implement them themselves they are worthless. The wiki didn't happen because I had the idea, it happened because brlca...

Re: Digital signing for OS X Mountain Lion

Getting passed it is built it to the OS: Even with the most restrictive setting of "Mac App Store Applications only", you can still force an app to run by right-clicking on it and selecting Open. This will display a warning that lets you override the restriction and run the application. Again, you o...

Re: DON'T LET BZFLAG DIE!! PLEASE READ THIS

Yes, I was guitargeek42, my brother littlelep and I have been playing for years. Maybe (in time; no rush) a new game should be made, but BZFlag should still be running. That way people can play the new game if they want. If not, they play the old BZFlag. Their choice. If the new game IS a success, ...

Re: Private server -can't connect more than 4 players

Excuse my ignorance, but if this is a "private" server, why should it connect to the list server? Also, If I am the first player to connect, I do so successfully, but if 4 player are already playing than I cannot connect. Private or not... authentication through the list server is still a possibili...

Re: Please Read

why not mute rather than ban if the issue is language ? Because for team play you kinda need to talk... It's a better punishment if you can't talk in a match than not being able to match at all. Seems to me, that you are complaining because you can't match (at times). That I would say that means th...

So edit the setting that affects the length... the speed is really not all that important, you either are hit or not, how fast is irrelevant.

Re: Server location and name

It seems you want everyone to do a little research for you. Personally, opening up your network to the outside world is probably something you should at least research yourself and ask questions about. If you make a mistake or do not understand what and why you need to do what you are doing, then yo...

Not a BZFlag issue... sounds like you still have spyware on your pc. Try running SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition and MalwareBytes Free Edition on your machine (if it will let you, spyware often will not allow those apps to even start). They can be found here: http://www.superantispyware.com/ http://ww...

Re: Just a question for y'all...

I would suggest you go with a classic style map. LouMan's and Spazzy McGee's maps are very eye catching but often times, they aren't very playable so they don't get much popularity on the server list. Just my thought. I would disagree on the playability aspect. Louman maps ruled the list server for...

Winny is a him, and he left BZFlag for good a couple of years age. I still contact him from time to time be he never plays anymore. Your best bet is to contact the server owner (which may be me). What server is it?
