Sometimes? What map are you on. Maybe the whole map is like that.

Try going to the DownloadAcess.txt and changing it to allow sites other than BZFlag sites.

Edit: Is this on 2.0.x or 2.4?

Ok, its probably that. For me it is is AppData/Local/BZFlag/DownloadAcess.txt Open the DownloadAccess.txt file and delete the last couple lines, or put a # in front of them. Then you should see everything gin normal colors.

Im on windows too. To find it hit the windows key and r at the same time, then type %appdata% and you will end up in USER/appdata/roaming in the search bar click back to just appdata, then go to local then bzflag then downloadaccess.txt

You should get to here, and click on the thing circled in red, then follow the other instructions


EDIT: I gotta go do yardwork. Hopefully you can fix the problem. If not I'm sure someone else can help.

Ohhh, you have a different version of windows than I do, yours probably didn't save in the same place. Go to the My Computertab on the sidebar and then click Local Disk C: . See the button that says search? Click that and type BZFlag. More than one folder should pop up, but not many (There will be a ton of things that aren't folders, ignore them. It might take a while to weed through). Look through them until one has DownloadAccess.txt

Edit: Just tried it, you can also search just for DownloadAccess, and it works great.

Blast thanks for that. I felt like a fish out of water trying to figure out where it would go as I don't have xp anymore.

you can either allow specific sites, or
leave the file blank (this will allow all downloads.

Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Of course, that image is outdated for BZFlag 2.4 on Windows, Optic Delusion. See my previous post. :)
