Better chat system

I suggest these features: - adding a shadow, similar to the console one, under the text, then it is more visible. But only when you type, not always. - if possible (maybe it's an old implementation/development), improving the speed of the general input system of the keyboard. I note the reaction lik...

Re: Game Networking Improvement

I have in general 200 or 300 ms of lag, depending if I am playing in NA or EU (I am from SA). As BZFlag is a complex game, IMO, adding still more info would make it more complex to manage, remembering that it is also an arcade game, which requires speed for reactions/thoughts (it is like a simulator...

Re: Ducati Mini Map

I am not against, tho I don't like minis in general; they are too demanding: action all the time, you can't think, etc. Seems a good idea for 2vs2 matches; but, also, depending on tastes. I would try it this way. jadespacy (Pie servers) answered me once that if we had a 4s match, then, that would be...

Re: Setting up a game server on a headless FreeBSD machine

I did a quick search but FreeBSD seemed too complex to understand easily (I am user of GNU/Linux mostly). But, what I suppose, is that together with the 'graphical version', as you say, comes the entire directory tree (all the files) which are into every BZFlag release (bzflag, bzfs, bzadmin, plugin...

Re: Rules: review and maybe revise/update

The players of a league should especially be mindful of their sportsmanship. If you're unable to control your use of foul language, then perhaps it's best to unbind the chat keys from your game. For instance, I would assume most sporting leagues have rules or guidelines against using profanity. Why...

Re: Outbox

More specifically, if you send a message to several recipients, as soon as one of them reads it, the message goes to "Sent messages", no matter if the others do it or not. Also, you can still edit it until this happens (just don't take much time because they can read it just before you send the modi...

Re: Rikers

They are different *continents*, and North America is a *subcontinent* of the whole America one, according to my point of view (see note #1). As there are big distances between them, there will be, inevitably, big differences of lags too. If the intention is to include *another* continents/subconti...

Re: Quoted messages issue into user's posts searchs

Well, as far as I could see, it is a BBCode (quotes, links, etc.) parser fault when you do a search and the found messages are longer than the maximum value set per result. Smilies are affected too. References: It was reported around 7 years ago (!) and it seems still not fixed (it is happening in t...

Is it possible to add the feature that shows quoted messages identifications into the searchs of user's posts? (I am talking of the "Search user’s posts" option inside his user profile).
