Welcome the strange trip of hosting a BZFlag server

Here's the sticky post on How to Run a BZFlag Server on Mac OS X

There won't be any problems if you have done everything correctly, which almost no one does :) So when you have an issue just ask.

The radar will be on unless you turn it off with a specific server setting.

You can get it onto the listserver and set the specific map file by reading the referenced post above.

You can definitely do it on your mac.



When you have -fb to add flags on buildings, you must have -j also to allow jumping up to the buildings.

I see you have -c to make a CTF map, make sure your map has bases defined. Once you decide which teams you are going to use, you must change -mp 0,0,0,0,0,0 to allow players on those teams. IE red vs blue would be -mp 0,5,0,5,0,0 for five players per team.

There is no application called Terminial

3. The bzfs.txt file contains the command to make the server run.

Now I will explain what to do:

a) Find and open the application called "Terminal" in /Applications/Utilities/ .
b) It should say "Welcome to Darwin! Your-Computer:~ YourName$" Or something similar...
c) Type this "./bzfs.txt" and press return. It should say "-bash: ./bzfs.txt: Permission denied". If it does not, it might print out loads of stuff like:


There is no application called Terminial on my mac!

Code: Select all

chmod o+x bzfs.txt
./bzfs.txt
you might need to add a "#!/bin/bash" to the top line of the command file, though.

It should certainly be under /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/
If not, try a search for it, with spotlight, Command+F in Finder, whatever.
If you really cannot find it, maybe it was deleted..? :/

Hmm, if he has no terminal, then where did the "-bash: ./bzfs.txt: permission denied" come from? :-\

He was quoting the "How to Run a BZFlag Server on Mac OS X" tutorial a temporal distraction linked to. It is one of the steps.

It would be useful if you gave us the type of mac you were using.
