Here's a list of the server variables.
http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/ServerVariables

The two you asked about are _shotSpeed and _tankSpeed

You have to increase their value.

Use

Code: Select all

/set _tankSpeed X
in BZFlag Client or

Code: Select all

-set _tankSpeed X
in the map (in the option - end part)

The wiki page that ATD mentioned has the default values listed. Also, you can always type: /set with no arguments, and you'll get a list of the server's current values.

For example, _tankSpeed is normally 25.

As the wiki page says, it is meant to be a general guide, not the definitive work. And, as the author says, many of the variables are a guess. Experiment with any variables that you want to change before you commit them to a public server. As far as I know, _tankSpeed works as advertised.

a server or a map or both?

i made a server on my G4 mac with minimal posting here, and i'm not the biggest tech nerd that ever lived.

search the frorums for all the information you need.

check out the map wiki http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/MapMaking if you want to make maps learn the simple code and how to use a good trig enabled calculator.

read CBG's brilliant guide on starting a server in mac os x http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=3940.

if you need global groups to administer your server request here: http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2660

read most of the wiki on servers and starting servers http://www.bzflag.org/wiki

the sleepycows guide: http://bzflag.sleepycows.org/how_to_bzfs.html

also read the various man pages for bzflag, bzfs, bzadmin and bzw at http://my.bzflag.org/bzfman.cgi

Ask yourself these questions:
can my computer handle the server? You'll probably be ok with any mac running tiger
can my connection handle the server? you'll need at the very least 2MB/s 'broardband'. have you got the bandwidth limit?
can i handle the administration and organisation of running a server?

all the info is out there, just open your eyes and look for it. i'v ony listed a few of the things to read here. if you need more help, search google, search the forums before you post here - the chances are your question is already answered and you'll get it done quicker.
