Ever heard of Google? It's this amazing thing you can use to search the internet.

Gee, look what the first result was for "python": http://www.python.org/

It's called python. It's a scripting language. You don't "install" the scripts, you run it from the python interpreter.

Try clearing out your cache, since nothing in the way of server configuration has changed.

I'll look through the banfile and see if there are any outstanding hostbans, as well.

If you don't know the password, then chances are your parents don't want you running a server, or touching the router's settings.

Running a server is not trivial, it is best to get someone with a suitable connection to host it for you.

On Leopard it is simply called the "Airport Utility".

Applications -> Utilities -> Airport Utility

From there, wait for it to find your router, and then you can administer it from there.

You need to unblock the correct ports on your router.

Look up your router and follow the instructions.

If you "don't know", then don't reply to the post, simple as that.

I havent had any issues, but I'll keep trying to replicate it.

Try starting BZFlag from the terminal, and see if it prints any errors into it after the crash.

You replace the .tga image with a .png image that you create in some photo editing software.

Check it out... don't know if it helps but here :P Then why don't you use your brain and figure out if it's helpful or not? That "article" only contains information about what was fixed or updated in 10.5.3, nothing about any problems arising from the update. So, in the future, think before posting.

If someone wants to host a map they will do so.

Just release them in the map releases section, under a viable license.

Then add them in a text editor, it really isn't hard to open up a text editor and type a few lines out. In most situations, it's faster to type it then adding flags with a GUI.

You need to use mono ( http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page ) to compile the program on OS X, since it's a Windows-based application.

You can have one picture that scrolls.

Make one (or two) 1024x64 images and have the numbers 1 to 60 on them (or across both in the case of using two).

Then you can use the same texture for the minutes and seconds column.

That texture is in your data folder.

They're named as red_tank.png, blue_tank.png, etc.

New leagues rarely last. It's not meant to discourage you, that's just how it is. Over the past 3-4 years I've seen about 5-6 leagues started, and they all died within 2 months.

That is a problem with your video card drivers. You need to get the newer/correct drivers.

It's not coding. It's compiling.

It's taking the human-readable sourcecode and turning it into machine language for the computer to run.

You need to replace "/path/to/" with the actual location of the file, or program.
