To add a small thing; I cannot see the lowercase 'j' in the chat box. I can see every other letter, including uppercase 'J'.

Your map is a great map, but IMHO is not a map that could support a league or a tournament. It's way too easy to camp on the blocks by the bases, or simply camp on the base. If the flag is put behind the pyramid bottom of the base, a team or player could easily continuously stop the other team/playe...

Yeah, I managed to find that option. However, all I get is a black screen in place of the bzflag screen when I try to record with it. It's the same effect as when I tried Hypercam, Camstudio, etc.

Here's mine. Out of the config's I've tried so far, yours is most like mine. The fact that you have one shot key next to your jump key is just like I have it, only in a different place. I as well have left click and wheel as alternate shot keys. Your radar and such is the same as mine as well. Coup...

When I use fraps, it lowers my fps in-game to around 20 whenever I try to take a video. This is when I choose half-size resolution, and is the same for all the fps outputs. My video card is pretty decent, NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS. So, I'm not sure what the problem is.. how big is your ram? What's yo...

Yeah, I don't think you can capture a video using WME. I believe you already have to have a video file for that to work.

And no, I don't have access to a Mac.

Video Capture Program

Hey all, does anyone know of a good video capture program for Windows Vista, that actually works on bz? I've tried some (most notably Fraps and Hypercam 2) but they don't seem to work. Most of the programs such as Fraps lowered my fps drastically while taking the video. This resulted in high lag and...

Yeah, if you're going to make a 1vs1 tournament, we'll need to know a little bit more information about it first. Once I know a little more, I'll consider joining.

1000

I managed to get 1000 without bots or cheats or anything. I played for 3 and a half hours on ahs3's 5v5 dodge trainer server. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon :) Sorry if it's big on your screen, I had trouble trying to resize it.

Why I made this post, and what I'm hoping to accomplish can be two different things :) I made the thread because I see too many times the best players aren't focusing on capturing the flag. What I hope to accomplish is for EVERYONE to focus more on capturing the flag. Kind of confusing, sorry. Eithe...

From the looks of your last post, I'd say what you really want is for the players with the highest scores to start capturing the flag. Fine. You're still not encouraging a team effort. In this case, you're not changing anything: The player capturing will just be spending time acquiring one type of ...

How would someone like me benefit from this? I play misslewars and pass the flag all the time. It is my teammates that usually cap, although I get some coast-to-coasters from time to time. Where is my counter for passing? I think it is even more critical to the cap than the actual landing on the ba...

If capturing the flag doesn't happen as often as it should, rewarding individuals will not make any difference. Beg your pardon, but I think it would. You can't make people want to work as a team. How is my idea 'making' people work as a team? That being said, if you do have individual scores displ...

What's the point? The reason for having a CTF game is to employ a team effort. Rewarding individuals for team accomplishments doesn't make sense. In a roundabout way, you could conceivably be providing an added incentive for team killing. If a player who isn't good enough to kill those on the oppos...

I think I wrote about this a long time ago in someone elses thread, but I want it brought back up in case other people think this is a good idea.

Just a note, the Message of the Day that comes up as you join bzf, it says the 1vs1 tourney is a "1vs1 BZFlag CTF Tourney. Since most of us know 1vs1 isn't CTF, it's not a huge problem. It may cause some confusion, so I just thought I'd bring it to people's attentions. I'm not sure who to talk to to...

At first everything was going all right, but after about 10 minutes of playing it started the freezing again. Could it still be heat related?

Thanks for all your ideas about this. I just turned on Energy Saver, so I'll see if this stops the freezing. I will let you know once I have tested it for a while.
