Regarding starting servers, read everything you can at:

http://bzflag.org/wiki

I've almost always started servers from the command prompt. The wiki will have a bunch of information on how to do that. When you try to join the server, what address and port are you specifying. You'll need to have 5154 as a port, and usually, people use "localhost" (without quotes) in the address field. I think that your computer's name will also work, as well as your local ip address. You can find your ip address by opening a command prompt and typing:

Code: Select all

ipconfig

At least, I think that's right, been a while since I used Windows. (open a command prompt by clicking on Start, Run... , and type in cmd)

Good luck
