somewhere that will be easy to find, like in "My Documents", or the folder bzflag was installed in, or maybe just the root of your hard drive

I'd suggest making a folder inside of My Documents that is strictly for bzflag. If you ever get around to making player groups, logs, report files, help files, etc. they would all go here too.

start it like this:

<your_path_to_bzflag>\bzfs.exe -conf <the_entire_path_to_the_config_file_you_made>

that should start the server using the config file you made

Maximum acceleration won't effect anything from what i've noticed. Simply putting:

Code: Select all

-a 38 50 
OR

Code: Select all

-a 50 38
Dont remember in which order, but simply adding that will get rid of that msg.

I can't see any errors in that other than your spelling errors ;)
Evanejk wrote:-world map.bzw
-world C:\Documents and Settings\Evan\Desktop\my_1st_map.bzw
You shouldn't have 2 'world' :)
Also, when specifying a world make sure you put " both at the start and end of the path.

Code: Select all

-world "C:\Documents and Settings\Evan\Desktop\my_1st_map.bzw"
Evanejk wrote:-help
From what I know (which isn't much) that won't add anything.

I think maybe your looking for this:

Code: Select all

## Player Controlled Functions ##

# This option specifies a help file that will be displayed when the player
# types /help name  
# Maximum length is 50 lines and 120 characters per line
#-helpmsg shock /path/to/shockwavehelp.txt 
#-helpmsg noob /path/to/noobhelp.txt
Hope I helped

This worked on my machine except without your world setting. If it doesn't work, your path to your world is problematic.

the switches in the config have to be in alphabetical order, like
-a
-b
-c
etc.

so you cant have -dd before -admsg
it will not start a server
thats why it wont start

ill put it in alphabetical order for you

That stuff is good stuff. It is what you get when you turn on debugging with the "-dd" in the config. I don't see an error, I suppose it may be time to look at router configuration issues. Google for "port forwarding" and look up the manual for your router model to configure it to allow udp traffic on port 5154 to your machine.

Has it worked locally? get rid of the -publicaddr and -public lines in the config, start up bzfs, open bzflag,
for the server, put: localhost
for the port, put: 5154

in the picture of the window above, i think its closing before you have a chance to see all the error messages,
try opening a command prompt window, then change directory to the folder with bzfs.exe and run it with the prompt window

that should make the window stay open after bzfs.exe exits, and you should be able to see all the error messages that you might have missed

He hasn't posted in over 12 hours, it's safe to assume he has terminated the process one way or another.
