Re: Ubuntu: service vs command line - where is CONF?

You may want to ask the Ubuntu Games community as I believe they added that to the Ubuntu package. The BZFS server gets the config file location from the command line option -conf and then the path to the config file.

Re: BZFlag for SteamOS?

The open source code that called that steamworks API would be somewhat useless since you could not compile with without steamworks and would make it impossible to build a client outside of the developers that worked for the company that produced the steam version. And the protocol would have to chan...

Re: BZFlag for SteamOS?

The proprietary consoles are not something the project is interested in doing, there are a number things that would make it very hard to work with in the current project structure, mostly the fact that major parts of BZFlag would have to be re-written and would have to be closed source (Microsoft an...

Re: Y11's with modded bzflag connecting to our server at sch

Our authentication is user based not sever based, so each client would have to connect with a global login username and ID, then you could basically ban any user that was not authenticated. This isn't exactly what you want, but it's all we have. There would be nothing to prevent a modded client from...

Re: UDP errors

You would need to read the documentation for net nanny, we are not able to provide support for it since we didn't make the software. They probably have a FAQ or something about how to get various games to work.

Re: Possible to View Flags on Ground?

Yes you talked about changing it's functionality, we will not be doing that. It may not be useful for your personal play style but it is for others. Not all flags are well suited to all people.

Re: Possible to View Flags on Ground?

The human players don't know what the flags are, so the robot players should not know it ether, so I don't see how it's something that you would have to program at all. When a tank drives over a flag it will get a message about what flag it has picked up. This is required to make "bad flags" work. I...

Re: Possible to View Flags on Ground?

The behavior you are seeing is intended. We specifically made the client treat all flags as PZ until pickup. This was done to prevent cheating. The Identify flag is the feature that tells a client what the nearest flag is. If the client knows all the flags anyway then there is no benefit to that fea...

Re: Lag Solutions??

If there are no other programs running while you play on your system, it is most likely your Internet Connection Speed that's an issue, or the Server's. It is possible that the game is laggy because of the weak/slow connection to the server. I wouldn't know if 16 MBit/s CS would be enough, since I ...

Re: Wings3D (un)triangulating every face.

View the obj file in meshlab to see if it has the triangles. If it does then they were made by the sketch-up export. This is my guess as to where that happens. Most programs turn everything into triangles so that they are all planar. My guess is that sketch up also doesn't export UV coordinates and ...

Changes to Developer Agreement

Just so everyone knows, Tim Riker has decided to make a change to the developer agreement, and change to Copyright Assignment. This is not a change to any kind of license and does not affect bzflag's open source status at all. We are still LGPL and fully open source, that ain't ever changing. What t...

you do know we actually have a server side bot API already right? it just doesn't do driving, shooting, and dying. Our goal was to do no networking code for bots at all and just let them update the server state.

Re: Robot player tournament framework

actually bz robots is used in schools to teach AI so this is not a new concept

the files you have posted are somewhat useless ( they include headers you did not provide).

How much work did you do to complete the server side bot API in bzfs?
