making servers

Post by Deactivated User 2920 » Sat Apr 30, 2005 7:45 pm

when you are on a server and you are starting one how do you speed up the shots so that they go faster than usual :?

Log onto your server as admin, then send this global message:
/set

That will give you a HUGE list of stuff you can set.
You should be something like _shotSpeed
To change it send this gloablly:
/set _shotSpeed 5
where 5 is the shot speed you want!!

Hope this helps.

Also check Here. I actually printed this as a reference.

I think _shotSpeed is the variable you're looking for. ;)

Short answer

Post by sbgodin » Sun May 01, 2005 9:53 am

when you start the server, specify the "-password" option. Example :

Code: Select all

bzfs -password mypissword
Log on.

When connected, take the admin privs typing, even the slashes :

Code: Select all

/password mypissword
Then, you have all the privs and you can do :

Code: Select all

/set _shotSpeed 200
Last advices :
- never give the password to anyone, prefer doing accounts and groups
- do not use mypissword as password ;-)

You need to put -password YOURSUPERSECRETPASSWORD in your command line. Then you log on to the server and type in /password YOURSUPERSECRETPASSWORD....

You seem to not even know how to run bzfs.
Try reading the following:
http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/CreatingAServer
and:
http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2915

Then come back here to ask any questions you still are unsure about.
