In my opinion, shockwave is bad for a maze, cause when you get trapped, well. It's just annoying to get killed across a wall and you have to navigate through a complicated set of walls to escape. It's like a time bomb with no hope of escape.

Here's a screenie. Looking at it from close up, I was hoping for some bigger and more noticeable lights, but still getting it all together takes hard work. Good job Optic.

I have had this problem when there is a meshbox under you and it's very thin. You can modify the plugin so that you spawn slightly above where you died. (Like by 1 unit).

Line 33:

Code: Select all

	  pos.z = data->pos[2];
Change to :

Code: Select all

	  pos.z = data->pos[2]+1;

Did you try changing around the quality settings. One of my similar desktop computers does do this until I change around the quality. Find it in Options > Display Settings (Or GUI Settings, forgot which) > Quality : ???

Try seeing if that helps.

Well, I've decided that we're gonna hold off the Soccer Tournament for most of this week and next week. I may decide to make a Soccer League, and ask Menotume for his BZFlag League system he has created. Hope to see you all soon, and maybe we'll be doing things this way.

The map file includes +r and -j, so both jumping and ricochet are within the map. Personally, I like it although it would be nice if the map was shrunken down slightly (about 0.85 if you group and scale the map).

Other than that, it has decent gameplay.

I have come up with the conclusion that most players are busy during the weekdays, so all matches will be held on Fridays-Sundays . This will provide a better convenience to all. So, Team A vs. Team D will be on Friday, 12/14/07. Team B vs. Team E will be on Saturday, 12/15/07. Team C vs. Team F wil...

Yesterday, all of team A was online, and only the sub, Fusilier appeared from Team D. Because at least one of your players from your team came, we have rescheduled Team A vs. Team D to Thursday (12/13/07) 5:00 PM PST 6:00 PM MST 7:00 PM CST 8:00 PM EST. If not enough show up this time from one team ...

We were waiting and waiting for awhile, and then it came time when *shadow* had to play, because of time limitations by himself. http://my.bzflag.org/bb/images/smiles/icon_exclaim.gif It was going to be tough for him, b...

So, last time we met Team A and B, they started their match and stopped at 4-2 with 15 minutes on the clock. Then we had to delay it until today, when their official match will continue. Today, Team A struggled to hold their lead, but Team B caught up and took the lead with 6-5! But then, Team A had...

Great game today! Team C took on Team D and practically eliminated them. It was only a 2vs2 match though because not enough players came on time, and then later on, we had the full teams for both! We ended up finishing our match with Team C: 15 caps, Team D: 2 caps. Thanks for playing! Try to come o...

With only 6 players, it's hard to tk (unless intentional). I've trained my teammates to not tk, so we're good. :wink:

(Sorry for the double post btw, but this'll help players and is important for the tournament) OK, so today we grouped up almost enough players for a game, and then everyone started leaving, losing interest in waiting for the grouping of players, so we've decided to set up an actual schedule.

If you do not get a full team by tonight, you'll just have to be a sub. Also, if a Team F forms , then Team E will vs. Team F instead of v...
