I was poking in /usr/share/bzflag, and came across a picture called frog.png . Could somebody please tell me what this picture is for?

I just tried that on my local server, and it was hilarious! They even have little blood splats when they hit! Thank you. I was wondering what a frog would have to do with BZFlag.

The Frog raintype is used on several maps - most notable, of course, being "Rain 'n' Frogs" (one of my first and favorite maps).
And the lesson for tonight is:

Never underestimate the ability of a newb to expect instant success and cry "cheat!" when they don't get it. Don't hate the newb, just give them plenty of learning opportunities. ;)

I'll just say that it's a bit unexpected. It's also very sick-Monty-Pithon-funny :twisted:
