Re: don't let BZFlag die

If BZFlag dies it's because it has lost its way. Instead of focusing on general gameplay and ease-of-play the newer releases have only been on focused on excluding people by voting bans and kicks, global bans, making camping impossible, censorship and registration. In the past BZFlag was easy to jum...

Mouse latency after playing several hours

After playing BZFlag for a couple of hours on Kubuntu 9.04 I get mouse latency especially when firing. There's a delay of about 0.5 to 1 second between pressing the mouse button and the firing action in BZFlag. That makes it almost impossible to play the game. The 'feel' of the mouse also seems affe...

Map time should be local time

Since servers are sometimes located around the world I'd like to see the option where the time of day of the map is equal to that of the player and not of the server. Another option would be to have a fixed time of day (if you always want to play in broad daylight).

Re: Maps I'd like to see hosted again

Zaphod, you put up the WRONG spiralzone map up. You put up 1.9 and the one I wanted is 1.6.

My own map

I'm announcing my own map: "The Three Farms" codenamed: The Punisher's Homeworld.

It's based on a random map from one of Longdon's servers a LONG time ago. The map somehow stuck in my mind and I re-created it from memory.

Re: Closed source BZFlag version

Oh and another thing: you could put in security hashes which wouldn't be part of the source code (i.e. in a seperate config file), so you wouldn't be violating the GPL or anything like that. The hashes would be secret and can't be faked.

Re: Closed source BZFlag version

Nope can't be done. I still see people cheating all the time even with the newest clients and servers. Besides people can put in 'subtle' cheats such as auto-aim, auto-jump (there are some players which I suspect have some of these). If there's no other way, someone should make an entirely new BZFla...

Screenshot with tanks posing

I was thinking about a nice screenshot where about a dozen tanks all look towards the camera, posing as if they were posing for a picture. I wanted to take the picture while roaming and looking downwards from somewhat up high in the 'Castle Warfare - Laser and GM Sniping' map. But I couldn't get peo...

Closed source BZFlag version

How about a special BZFlag server / client pair which have built in security measures (hashes, encryption) and which are incompatible with the current open-source version. This would solve the problem of cheaters once and for all. This would give people a lot more confidence that the game is fair. I...

Map hosting server?

Are the servers / admins which allow you to upload a map or suggest one to be hosted?

I'd like on of the old maps hosted. Also, I'd like one where there are less strict rules on adult language and the like.

Re: Maps I'd like to see hosted again

The old school servers, eh? I've always sat on the idea of bringing back all the old maps. The sad truth is - they just don't get played. Even when they do get hosted, they don't pull the players. The community has changed - for the better or for the worse - and the game has changed considerably wi...

Re: Maps I'd like to see hosted again

Secretplace 1.6 is never being hosted, IIRC, only 1.9, which I think sucks. I haven't seen FreedomLives in quite a while, either. Same holds for PieInTheSky, FairGround and King of the Castle (another great map to camp if wings are disallowed). Like I said, the other maps which are being hosted aren...

Re: Camping should be endorsed

Camping is hindered by shot limits, wings and map topography. Planet Mofo had a nice map mod where you could easily jump on the roof in the corners and use a Laser to kill off anyone and defend your position easily. That was fun. They changed it a couple of weeks later so you couldn't jump on the ro...

It's easy to play but hard to master, infintely varied and those flags are very ADDICTING. You always think 'if I can get that SW/L/GM one more time....'

Re: what flag do you pwn with?

It actually depends on the map.

For example on Freedomlives and Fairground the SB is the weapon I pwn with. In Castle Warfare, Mad City and Mario's Arena it's the GM. In Planet Mofo (the Christmas 2008 edition) it's the laser. In Bloodbath it's the SW with which I wreak havoc. :D

BZFlag website

We all know BZFlag is a great game but I think the BZFlag website simply doesn't invite newbies to try it out. There should be WAY more screenshots (I have a couple that I'd love to be posted) and a high-quality Flash movie (Vimeo HD) would really look great (I'd like to make one but don't know how ...
