BZFlag running hot with OSX Catalina

Post by optic delusion » Thu Oct 24, 2019 1:49 am

After upgrading to OSX 10.15 Catalina, when playing BZFlag the fan on my late 2013 iMac would shift into overdrive. One sensor reported 191degrees F. A couple guys on IRC gave me the solution.

On the "display settings" panel, set "energy saver" to "vertical sync"
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
