Re: mouse on a Mac

Just a little side comment here - I tried a joystick about 6 months ago for the first time... it was definitely interesting ;) Only having an hour to play with it, I didn't really get the full "feel" for playing with a joystick. The joystick I used had buttons placed so you could ever so easily perf...

Re: should BZWC become a league?

There's an option built into the plugin to not pass the flag on death.

The team flag will not reset after four drops. To do this, you will need a plugin.

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

That way works too. Didn't really think about the "density" calculations.

Glad this is working out. Now we just need to patch it for 3.0 and maybe it will make it in :)

Re: should BZWC become a league?

Hi again- Just thinking about this league and I had an ... interesting idea. What if, (using the PTF plugin) you can "kick" the flag, not carry it. As soon as you grab the flag the server takes it and it flies in the direction you were going? Maybe call it something like KickTheFlag? :P This could e...

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Wow... great work!! Looks incredible! I only found one "bug" which is exhaust still "generates" when a tank has stealth. Fixed that. I also added that the color of tank exhaust is their team color. Only exception is that rabbits are rainbow. Tanks that have stealth/cloaking will ONLY generate exhaus...

Re: Link to main page on top of forum

I think what a lot of people don't realize is the handy move-me-to-the-top button at the bottom right of every post (Here's what I'm talking about -> http://cl.ly/aa9377dd97d298c20681)

Re: Rouges in CTF style game

On the topic of this, there is a plugin that disallows rogues to move the team flag.

They can still shoot, kill, and distract but they are unable to interfere with the team flags.

Can't remember the name off the top of my head but it sounds like a very very simple plugin to write.

if you don't like those, try something else there are OVER 50 maps out there waiting to be discovered Uhm, how about more like over 200? Most maps on the list server people never even get played on.

Re: Always kill?

U kill for points not the strongest player Is that what you do? Hunt the lowest person on the scoreboard and then just kill them until they leave? That's really childish and shows how weak you are at BZ. If you wanted to get better and try to improve your skill set, you would hunt the strongest pla...

Re: Google SketchUp

Here's what I do. I design everything in normal SketchUp then I open up Google SketchupPro (Download here http://sketchup.google.com/download/gsup.html - You get eight hours of 'modeling', which is really exporting in this case) and export it to a .obj.

Hope this works

SkinMechanix: Sadly enough, you found one of the servers that is a spawn-killing frenzy. If you go onto "more fun" maps (in my opinion) you can actually do some stuff without getting killed.

Re: should BZWC become a league?

As far as match servers go, I'm sure zaph will host a euro one. I would be willing to host a US server if the BZWC League actually gets established.
