Re: New Router and New Lag Issues

Most servers are in the US... the only thing that could possibly help is moving closer to the US. It takes a long time for a packet to travel half way around the world and back. There are some Australian and European servers that likely would perform better for you.

I would guess not... he is pretty protective of those maps. Many have asked him in the past.

If you are playing over wireless make sure that the driver for your PC for your wireless card is up to date. And also make sure you are running the latest version of ios on your router.

Re: Server in port 5300

Trying to figure this out...

I see no bans for your ip address, callsign, or host. Does this only affect bzflag3.norang.ca and 1purplepanzer.com? Or does it affect other servers as well?

Because it was written in 1992... and java first appeared in 1995. And java wasn't what it is today when it first appeared anyway.

You change your username because if you used your other one no one would put up with you... now that the connection is made, they will not put up with you. Your reputation online within a community is important if you want to stick around.

Yes, but it cannot be EXACTLY defined so that it can enforced in all situations for all people. This is where admins earn their keep.

My initial guess with no other evidence would be that it is a video driver issue. Apple is notorious for having poor video drivers when releasing new equipment.

Re: Server name is blank

I am not aware of any residential DSL/cable service that allows you to host game servers. Business class DSL/Cable may let you host servers but it is more expensive. You will need to read their terms of service.

Re: Server name is blank

You will probably also want to use a dynamic DNS service and get a domain name. That way you won't have to get a public key everyday... your key should be attached to your hostname. You also would need to set up port forwarding on your router and open ports in your windows firewall and make sure tha...
