I used the paid version of Fraps. (If you look at the post, I said "so I recorded a short clip from BZFlag at 1280x720 (the recommended resolution for HD video in both youtube and vimeo) at 30FPS using fraps")

I found this by googling "Free games for mac."

I can get a positive score; I just choose not to.

Yes, I agree with that. I've installed BZF before, but when I tried to install again (windows user) the download link I followed was not to the installer - some source code package maybe, who knows. Anyway, I considered d/loading from a 3rd party site (but that makes me a little nervous) and eventually found a link to an idiot-proof installer for windows. It would be great to make that very obvious and easy to find. If a windows user searches for "free games", they won't have the patience to persue the idea if it's not immediately successful IMO.
One day, I'll get a positive score....

Yeah, I guess the "Downloads" image takes you to the source instead of the wiki page with a list of downloads.

I am a drupal developer and would love to help with a drupal based website refresh. My biggest wish would be a maps section where users can upload, rate, and comment on maps, with an api backend so when I start bzflag, I can just select a map off of the website and run it. If the devs are interested, I can build and temporary host an example site.

I have also done some design work, but if there is someone in the bzflag community who is a pro designer, I can take the mockups and turn them into websites.

Sounds interesting. You should hang out on the BZFlag IRC channel (#bzflag on irc.freenode.net) and ask around there. IIRC, brlcad was the one who was thinking about using Drupal for the main site.

I built a prototype at http://bzflag.manystrands.com/

You can create accounts, upload maps, comment on maps, rate maps, and users can upload screenshots to other people's maps.

It would not be tremendously difficult to expose a web services api.

The theme is the default drupal theme for now.

Any interest or ideas?

btw, for various reasons I have thus far avoided IRC, so if someone wants to point brlcad at this topic, I would appreciate it.

i agree
that way someone can have ppl on their fav server more often
but they need to b dispersed
i like missle war but there are always too many ppl on it
maybe we should have 2 of those or get more ppl to like the 4 team!

Having a maps section is the least of the worry right now. The main reason we were looking at Drupal was because it had LDAP integration. However, that might be a moot point now that our new authentication daemon has an alternate interface for that sort of thing. A modular authentication system in a web app is probably what we'd need to look at now, which Drupal may or may not satisfy.

There's probably a developer mailing list if you don't want to use IRC ... but I don't really keep track of that - I mainly watch the forum and IRC.
