I don't really like the first idea because I feel that a square world is the simplest design, and I like the simplicity of the game. The second idea I agree with, and after asking dozens of times, I still don't see why they can't be made that way. The third idea I strongly disagree with because if t...

I meant to talk about having grace in general, I know you kick/ban people, I meant about other people. I see how that could have been taken in reference to you, but it wasn't.

I feel a good server is one with a nice map, frequent administration, reasonable kicks/bans, doesn't have to have perfect settings but at least a fair amount of shots, and people with a good sense of humor. I run mine pretty much like that, except I ban people forever at the first sense that they ar...

Ahh, I knew about that stuff, just didn't know it made enough of a difference to consider it "new server code", nearly as if a rewrite, as spoken above.

I figured it out (hopefully), and I believe you mean to have a flag to be able to go under _deadUnder texturing. This is a creative idea, but the holder can kill others but cannot be killed in certain situations, as in, they can shoot, and when about to be killed themselves, just dive under.

This does not mean you are banned. If you were, you would get an "Error connection to server" message, as I have been banned many times :) just for silly stuff from polls, even once by accident, nothing serious. Anyway, this error means there is a connection error, and a fix would just be to keep tr...

New network coding? I haven't even heard of that and I am a dev. The only think I could think of that that means is a while back how brlcad and me seemed serious to rewrite the entire thing using Spread network lib, but that was a bust--neither of us brought it up after that, and when either of us d...

BTW, I always felt that a game is most fun and enjoyable if you don't follow a tutorial or do what everyone else is doing. Teaching the basics is fine, but I feel that the most fun is experienced if you just try playing and just mess around with everything, but do what you feel is most fun because t...

I disagree about implementing this idea, and I will explain. I feel that this may make many people think about a server not based on what it has to offer, but based on how people vote on it. It would add an element to the game that may have some people play based on how good one server is ranked com...

Well, all three of us are - you, DTRemenak, and me. But yes, the packages should be compilable. Not the neatest yet, but at the least compilable without and any further changes needed.

And yes, the project files are in CVS. We are still working on it, like patlabor221 said, but it is near perfection.

Well, I am not sure if I should mention this, but MinGW32 (which is what Dev-c++ uses), already has all the definitions for DirectX stuff (at least what bzflag uses), so all you need are the headers it says it can't find. A yahoo search will get you these. Place them in c:/dev-cpp/include and recomp...

I wouldn't suggest that. Dev-C++ has more bugs than a forest after a fresh rain, and they are so blatant, it is nearly as if releases of Dev-C++ are not tested, but it is really the only IDE for free for windows, mingw-studio is a close contender, but it uses a windows 95 style, and isn't very confi...

Ahh, this is a sinch :)

Open up "version.h", and replace "BZ_BUILD_OS" with:

"VC7W32"

exactly like that, even with the quotes around it.

The first error is because you had the wrong version. The second error is because you didn't replace the included common.h in the source package with the one supplied with the project files. That should fix the problem. The readme.txt will tell you about certain errors when compiling and how to fix ...

This map is based on a real island that I seen in person a countless amount of times around the city of Carpinteria, CA, USA (actually, the island is at Mussel Shoals, but Mussel Shoals is less than half a mile wide in each direction, so it doesn't count :) ).

Ahh, it's easy man. But 4.9.5.0 is extinct, get 4.9.8.10. All you do is go up to "File", then "Open", then select "Project file" or something like that title. Then, open one of these project files to compile the respective project, and then just hit F9 to compile. Piece of cake :)
