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

This game has always been, and should always be the quirky little open source game it has always been. Those who played the original 3-D arcade versions of BattleZone (and Red Baron) understand what and perhaps recall what this game offered, on top of being freely available. When it came out, those ...

Re: Problem playing BZFlag on small screens

I'm glad to see this thread is resulting with players and devs, that are the bzflag community, discussing elements of the game with potential changes. It's great to see people still care and enjoy this game! So now do this: Join Game->Find Server->Connect Then come look for me in bzflag, because I w...

Re: old player thoughts on new players

Sorry for confusion on my comment about "see you in a few years", as I meant that in regards to posting on this forum.

old player thoughts on new players

howdy folks, i'm an old tanker who plays anywhere and everywhere, this includes those weird servers with little to no admin control. this translates to verbal abuse quite often as you imagine. however playing under aliases as often as i do, where i continue to encounter a good handful of players fro...

not sure what the process is for approval by GU admins, but first things first. testing! we should probably test the servers before making it an official one eh? cbg's is pretty low lag for me but my jit was about 5ms, how about you other players? we need input one of the "official" usa servers acco...

excellent Chestal, Thank you. the jitter concerns me more than my lag from such a far distance (i would expect the higher lag). something that i experience on this end is that the bullet seems to arrive quicker than expected. for example; timing of when i jump to avoid oncoming bullets is off and my...

for some reason, packet loss is bad on both servers for most players. they do not get used for a reason birdman :wink:
maybe they need fatter pipe.

cbg's is pretty good but not match setup yet for testing.

are there any usa or canadian (or anything closer) people that can host a GU league style server? we are in desperate need of a GU server.

good discussion :) thanks guys! like bzflaginator, from this end sometimes it does feel like they have thin tanks over there, but its been my thinking that my lag gets those packets back here later as described. when fighting tanks with 30-50 +- 10 ms however, i feel almost cheated in that the bulle...

not hypothetical at all, its more like an every day scenario when playing on servers across the ocean in europe. what i'm trying to get here is the magnitude of the player A variance in lag versus player B lag ping. certain players often say i'm laggy, on my stable line i get 160 +- 2ms (which i thi...

question about lag: causes and effects

hi, i'm hoping the dev's could shed light on this scenario. consider "player A" located physically close to a server, say in the same country, whose lagstats reflect 50 ms +- 10 ms. question: does this mean that the player A's line varies from 40 to 60 ms? does this also mean that "player A" true la...

But I like the Jump-in-and-Go type atmosphere he's talking about. There could easily be 10 or so such tournaments, one for each format, and they could happen pretty often (Like once every month). Then, the winners' names would go up on right of the sign in screen until the next tourney. Granted thi...
