I like green because it has better camo. On many maps, it is the most difficult for me to see, radar or hud. Consequently, I prefer to be green rather than play against green.

On hix, I like purple.

I have tk'd with geno on two occasions, once killing twelve of my team mates, and I tend to drop the flag unless I am a rogue or am the only player on my team. :oops: Obviously, my team mates were displeased, although a few players stated "nice going" and "thanks." :wink: Always when I'm getting Gen...

I still use a Razer DeathAdder and a Razer Diamondback, but I recently purchased an a4techx7 that was recommended by tankzilla. It is a very good mouse, and it only costs $25.00. It's highly programmable and moves very smoothly on a Razer exactmat.

Homer was connected to a gu league server yesterday, but there was a "-" in front of his name, indicating the the password was incorrect or missing. On gu league servers, Homer needs to be added to a list to log on or talk. I haven't seen Homer on other maps and don't know if that is the problem.

Some players actually are kids that need adult supervision. Other players are adults that need adult supervision. Many, IME, are the salt of the earth.

Beenz: It takes a while (longer than that for me!) to get the hang of it. You can let an admin know that you are new. There are some players that will help you out and give you pointers. You can also practice alone or with another player on an unpopulated map to develop your skills. After a few mont...

And it's sponsored by the U.S. Army? Do they play BZ? Maybe they'll start a GU League team.

If you have a copy of Windows, use Boot Camp to create a Windows partition, install Windows, boot up your iMac in Windows, and run the BZ Windows client. It's faster than the Mac client.

I'm using RC2, and it works very well. Is there a way to control the size of the window after minimizing it? Also, when I unconfine the mouse, wierd things happen, and when I revert to full screen mode, the mouse is confined to the windowed area. I am using RC2 on Windows XP on a Intel-based Mac, so...

Great intro music! Loved listening to you guys speaking. You were all great. I can't decide if CBG should play a young James Bond in the next movie or anchor the BBC news.

Razer DeathAdder

Razer DeathAdder (when playing the Windows version, since there isn't a Mac driver; otherwise, a Razer Pro or Razer Diamondback).

It is a great mouse. It is very comfortable and fast.

Microsoft also sells a version of the DeathAdder with some different features, IIRC.

Comcast and Verizon charge more for a business account than a residential account of comparable bandwidth. There's a difference.

Generous offer, notwithstanding.

I don't know why, but the Windows version under Windows seems to run faster on my MacIntel than the Mac version under OS X.

I boot into Windows solely to play BZ.
