Re: Rejected Flags

Lasers can be dodged using some common sense. See where they are aiming, if they're not aiming at you, shoot and pray. If they face you, jump, hopefully onto a block. Sometimes lag can help you survive and get an extra shot in. This can't be done if there is someone camping across the map and you d...

Re: Rejected Flags

When you get hit by a special shot, there should have been some way for you to dodge it and you should say "Ok.. you got me". Sorry I didn't post this earlier, but it just caught my eye: this isn't right. Laser and Guided Missiles are impossible to dodge at most maps. It recently started bugging me...

Re: "Trainer" map suggestion box

I think this would all be great; I love all the new ideas. But dont drift too far! We starred off with possible ideas, but we have to make sure this is all feasible.

This is the time where JeffM comes in and crashes the party!

Re: Question, Suggestion & Issue.

What he's saying is true; a lot of people (especially high ranked people) are very rude and inconsiderate on these forums. This is definitely a serious problem (it is also one that annoys me A LOT). As for the original question, etc.: I don't think there is a very good reason to do any this. You sai...

Loading a .BZW file

I use BZEdit to make my own maps (they dont go to the server list; they are just for my amusement). The file is saved as a .bzw file, but how do you load that file into BZFlag itself? My brother used to do it, but I dont know how... Help? :?

Then you "ain't" posting it here if it doesn't have an "open" license and we can't use it so just keep it for yourself! "Well" then he could have "just" said that I coul...

Wait a second; I could. I already upload videos to YouTube and I have a professional Music Studio... Honestly, it would be a piece of cake... Doesn't have to be long, I would just get like a 10-20 second clip and loop it. I'll start (with permission, of course) and send it to an admin. Thoughts, any...

Re: DON'T LET BZFLAG DIE!! PLEASE READ THIS

I know someone is going to go against me on this, but I highly recommend using W to jump, E and R to shoot (for a rapid shot spread), and F to drop the flag. My brother discovered this control set on a GU map, and it greatly helped him. I recently adopted this, and it is very helpful for quick react...

Re: DON'T LET BZFLAG DIE!! PLEASE READ THIS

All of these features and ideas would make BZFlag a lot better, but with the production of a new game (I dont even know if this new game is being worked on), it could be near pointless... These ideas would have been very helpful when the game was popular, but no one carries out these ideas. Also,wit...

Re: DON'T LET BZFLAG DIE!! PLEASE READ THIS

So hurry up and get thinking, because if you want to help bzflag become a huge success, then you all have to help!! Thinking isn't the problem... executing is! Not executing has been the problem from the start (in my opinion). Once BZFlag started going downhill, people were coming up with great ide...

Re: "Trainer" map suggestion box

It's great to hear from you again, Agent West. This is my new callsign; I was guitargeek42... A trainer map is a great idea, but now that BZFlag is getting old and retiring, this might be near pointless. This seems like a very harsh word to me, but no other word was coming to me.

Re: Rejected Flags

True. This is exactly what I thought when I read through the list. Most of them were unrealistic and rejected for good reason, but some did kind of go against existing flags. That is the reason I started this topic.

Thanks, I understand what you are saying. It is completely natural for such an old, free game to be overpowered by new, professional game with many game modes. I created this thread before I fully understood how hard it would be to bring BZFlag back. Now that you have all explained this to me, I can...

Yes, I was guitargeek42, my brother littlelep and I have been playing for years. Maybe (in time; no rush) a new game should be made, but BZFlag should still be running. That way people can play the new game if they want. If not, they play the old BZFlag. Their choice. If the new game IS a success, t...
