Look in C:/Program Files/BZFlag(version)/ and the maps should be right there for Windows. I don't know bout Linux.

The root level of your hard drive. Just open it, and you should see it somewhere around that window.

Well, if he's running Panther (10.3) you can search in hidden folders (not sure about earlier versions though). If it's not in your home folder or the root of your hard drive, a search would definitely be good.

i'm running 10.2.8 and the hidden files & folders thing is a pain.

glad to know 10.3 has hidden files & folders implemented... :)

btw, what's the difference between .bzw files and .map files? my bzflag only recognized .bzw files so i renamed the .map files to *.bzw, and they seem to work...
