hideRadarViewLines

Post by Kolorciuk » Sat Jul 09, 2011 12:53 am

This feature was surely intended by the author of bz, but i think he forgot to add this as option in config file.
To enable it simply add one line in src/bzflag/defaultBZDB.cxx. There's no diff between bzf 2.0.16 and 2.4.0 - there's the same file in the same directory.
Here's output of diff, as you see, only 1 line to add.

$ diff -rc bzflag-2.0.16 bzflag-2.0.16.hideradarviewlines
diff -rc bzflag-2.0.16/src/bzflag/defaultBZDB.cxx bzflag-2.0.16.hideradarviewlines/src/bzflag/defaultBZDB.cxx
*** bzflag-2.0.16/src/bzflag/defaultBZDB.cxx 2010-02-14 15:45:55.000000000 +0100
--- bzflag-2.0.16.hideradarviewlines/src/bzflag/defaultBZDB.cxx 2011-07-09 02:33:09.000000000 +0200
***************
*** 63,68 ****
--- 63,69 ----
{ "displayReloadTimer", "1", true, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
{ "displayRadar", "1", false, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
{ "displayRadarRange", "0.5", false, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
+ { "hideRadarViewLines", "0", true, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
{ "defaultFOV", "60.0", false, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
{ "displayFOV", "60.0", false, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },
{ "roamZoomMax", "120", false, StateDatabase::ReadWrite, NULL },


After compiling and running, bzf should automagically append this line to config.cfg:

$ cat ~/.bzf/2.0/config.cfg | grep hideRadarViewLines
#set hideRadarViewLines 0

Uncomenting this line and setting to 1 will hide two view lines on radar. Now it's way easier to dodge.

It was probably commented out intentionally to encourage more skill.
Be careful not to use this modified client in league matches as it will be considered cheating.

It does not require a client modification. It is already a feature in the game. The above change simply makes it write out the default value in the config file.

Ahh! I see.
I just tried using "/localset hideRadarViewLines 1" to see the effect. I think I prefer it with the lines.
