BZFlag doesn't recognize my forum SN and password

Post by dartman » Sat Jul 24, 2010 3:45 am

Hi, I haven't really posted on here in a while. I've had a problem with BZFlag for a while. At least a year ago, BZFlag suddenly stopped recognizing my callsign and password for the global login. I used the same info from my forum account, so that's not the issue. i even tried changing my forum password, and using the new password in BZFlag, but that didn't work either. I got the same error message about a bad token (whatever that is). I looked at another topic here where a guy had a similar problem, and someone linked him to a troubleshooting part of the BZFlag wiki, and it said something about changing a line in the config file. The only problem? I can't find the config file! Can someone please help me with this issue? It's been really annoying, and I would love to be able to use the global login again, instead of just sticking a hypen in my callsign and going unregistered.
