I'm using osx and was just wondering if there was a way to make bzflag in a window rather than fullscreen...

add -window -geometry 800x600 to the command line.

where 800x600 is the size of the window you want.

fullscreen is the only mode right now

The -window -geometry options do not work on the OS X client right now, even if you run the binary directly from the terminal.

It's only fullscreen only, as far as I know, for the time being.

Hear, hear to that. I have had the same or similar problems on several occasions. Usually, I just want to jump out real quick to perhaps change my music or see who is messenging me..

I'm going to see how tough it is to either get app-switching to work (ala CMD-TAB or something similar) or get windowed mode working at least via the command line args over the next week. Wish me luck.

Cheers!

looked at the source

I looked at the source code last night. The command-line arguments are read and handled properly. Non-fullscreen mode is just entirely not implemented.

Getting windowed-mode code is not "hard" but will be a bit tricky. It's a bit more involved. We'll see.

Cheers!
