this was discussed in one of the other threads, you need to go into your bzflag.bzc in your My Documents or home directory and add a line 'email' then leave some space and then whatever you want to have it say instead.

When you run the executable, add -anonymous to the command.

Ask Spiff, maybe he'll hope you. He did it with Legolas. Legolas irritated him. :-D He he..

Alrighty then..i fixed it and i must say...this G2 looks and works AWESOME!!!!!! I love the way SB looks and the explosions are way cool!!!!!first, i had to remove ALL of the bzflag.exe in my programs..i had 3 versions and i believe they were conflicting each other...once i cleard EVERYTHING bzflag related..i then restarted and installed ONLY the 1.7G2 version...so..in the long run..once you get a newer version..it is probably a good idea to get rid of the older versions? thanx for all the help (SGI & SPIFF) i think i'm a little smarter now... :shock:

Cool, glad you got it fixed.

I normally uninstall any previous version first before I install a new one. Only exception is I'm running 1.7g2 and 1.9 (rabbit hunt) but they are installed in completely seperate directories.

Maybe someone can help me on AIM with this. I opened the file, but there was no email line. I then deleted my other versions and ran g2, but the email line of code was still not there. My AIM name is munkyskater. Leave me a message if I'm not there please.
