Cannot See Full Server List

Post by MikeEller » Tue Sep 04, 2012 12:31 am

I am running Linux Mint. I have installed BZFlag from the software manager. Everything installs ok and bzflag runs. However, when I select to Join a Game and the select find server, I only see 7 servers....not seven pages.....seven servers total to pick from. How come I cannot see the full list of servers? How do I get the entire list?

Regards,
Mike

What bzflag client version do you have? You may have installed an older one. The newest one I believe is v2.4.3, that one currently has over 200 servers online.

Yeah...I think that is the problem. Linux Mint 13 came with BZFlag version 2.0.16.
Tried building from source....got soooo many errors. Will take a will to work through all the "missing" requirements...unless somebody has an easy way to get it loaded.

Reading the README file is always a good way to get started and by making sure you have all the dependencies needed to build correctly. Double check you have everything you need.

You could probably follow the Debian/Ubuntu instructions in README.Linux.
