custom graphics and sounds

Post by Tegan » Sat Aug 14, 2004 8:21 am

I wonder if other players use any custom sounds or graphics they'd like to share? It could be as simple as a special super-bullet, or a fully customized theme with sounds and textures.

I'll start this off with my amateur rendering of smiley-faced bullets, regular bullets with smiley faces painted on using the GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Data files and screenshots are here

Hehe, great job! :)
Does the walker choose the path or does the path choose the walker?

Tegan,

Gerbil posted some Star Wars theme sounds here.

Toaster: cool! thanks :)

Memnarch: short answer: see the bzflag manpage for -directory usage.

long answer:
Make a copy of your system's bz data directory, wherever that is installed, to somewhere in your home directory.

E.g.: "cp -via /usr/local/share/bzflag ~/altbzdata"

Modify or replace files in this alternate directory as desired. Then invoke bzflag with the -directory switch, e.g. "bzflag -directory ~/altbzdata". Enjoy!
