how do i load a plugin on windows

Post by DeltaFlame » Sat Jun 30, 2012 8:26 pm

ok ive got a plugin with custom flags that i want to load on a public server but i dont know how to compile it
i know that i have to type in on the map file -loadplugin CustomFlags (the name of the plugin i wish to load) but when i attempt to open the server a pop up message comes up saying somthing about the plugin either not working or not compatable for windows
please also note that my bzflag is saved in program files x86 just in case this is important

thanks

Wait, you're trying to run a public server from Windows? Don't even both with that. It will not work well as there are known issues with hosting servers on Windows.

With Visual C++ 2008, for 2.4.0. The latest SVN trunk uses Visual C++ 2010.
