EDIT: do you have to use root mode? cause there's nothing going wrong in root.
EDIT 2: GOOD GOD!!! Root couldn't create some directories. AND ROOT IS THE SYSTEM MANAGER.

where is the new 2.0.9 BZflag located?

First of all i dont even know why you would want 2.0.9 since there probably is not many new features.

the directory to grab the compile is always the same no matter what the latest version is. Please read about compiling on the other forums for help there.
