You have to be able to compile your own BZFlag. I remember seeing that patch on sf.net and I couldn't get it to apply. Patches, when released, only work with the code it was patched for. If the file it patches changes (which happens often) it will fail miserably.

This thread might help http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=182

I don't patch (I support the development of plugins), so I can't really help much.

Matt, do you realize this patch probably isn't going to help you? If you used this at lasermania it would quite possibly block your view of other players at really far distances.
