I got the flickering solved on Win 7 - 64 AMD 64 ATI HD 4800, the problem isn't the card but that the compatibility install for BZFlag on 7 seems to default at video at 16 or 8 bits or some such so just change video settings in BZFlag under options to 32 bit and Voila!

Hope that helps.

i couldnt change any setting because the bzflag.exe process disappeared after 1 second. In windowed mode too.
I have in the meantime Win XP again.
The game runs now but the performance is terrible.
The fps is fluctuating between 50 and 200 fps.
Seems to be a driver problem.
