Rough can also mean a small or vague outline of, ie: not providing too many specific details.

For example, you make a "rough draft" or something. It may have perfect spelling and grammar, but it just covers the outline of your final idea or solution.

You cannot make the texture from a image you found on Google.

That would be stealing the image without consent from the author.

The only way you can use an image from "Google" is if:
a) It's licensed under a license to allow that.
b) You contact the author and get permission.

piet Jeff already mentioned that Saturos used Inkscape. As a side note, asking what program someone uses to make something is sort of pointless.

Yeah, there are a few known issues with BZFlag on 10.5.5. For one, Macbooks with GMA X3100 Intel integrated cards experience a extremely substantial drop in FPS, which can be fixed by turning off smoothing. Apple states that 10.5.5 includes "significant graphical enhancements", which generally means...

I'd recommend not putting all this information onto a separate site.

Instead, start putting it all on the wiki, which is more or less the "home base" for all BZFlag information.

Your ISP is probably having some routing issues, or is configuring some hardware.

Give it a week or so, and if you still have no UDP, try contacting them to see if they're having issues.

A "hacker" in this context is someone who downloads the code, makes a couple mods, then joins a server.

Just ban him/her and be done with it.

That's not "renaming" the picture.

That is exporting it in a new format. Of course it works.

Because it was created while the program was still in active development.

As well, it was built by a developer, so it's more "official".

Which clutters up your desktop with images... versus BZFlag filing them away neatly to a folder.
