Stars and J F R on servers list

Post by Papy » Mon Oct 30, 2006 7:16 pm

I am pretty sure the answers are already inside the faks but where ?
So please be kind to xcuse the new comer. :oops:

In front of the server list are :

- Stars : red or yellow or white. What does that means ?

Also letters :

J F R : And that stand for what...

and sometime, nothing, just black before the name of the server. Not available, I presume.
Could someone explain me that. Thanks a lot.
Be Happy...

Red * = CTF
Yellow * = FFA
White * = Rabbit
Cyan * = Replay

Server Title Colours
Red = More Shots
Orange 5-10 Shots
Yellow = 3/4ish Shots
Green = 2 Shots
Blue = 1 Shot

JFR means what features are enabled:
J (if colored) means that you can jump
F (if colored) means that there are Super Flags (the white power-up flags)
R (if colored) means Rebound is on (bullets will bounce off the walls)

Colored stars...perhaps the team colors? Not real sure what you mean, but if you mean the big shiny star buttons, that's what team you've selected.

Wow, nice, Spazzy. Now I'll know more about selecting a server. What does cyan really mean?
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.
