Playing BZFlag on a multiseat setup

Post by Frydman » Sun Oct 13, 2019 1:40 am

Have any of you tried this before? (Or is this your youtube account? This is a COOL concept!)

This makes me think, how difficult would it be to set up without the need for an internet connection? I saw some of the directions around here for locally playing over a LAN, would that be the same directions if using a single computer setup with multiple seats?

You could certainly run a local server (bzfs) on the same machine.

Wait, someone was actually playing on my server? Anyway that's a really cool concept.
I've been working on a real-time stats site called BZList, please check it out! And if you wouldn't mind taking the survey that would be great! It is still in active development, so some features are missing and watch out for bugs.
