The Wacky Glitch Screenshots

Post by SkillDude » Mon Aug 30, 2010 4:31 am

This is what happens when under unusual (and unknown by me) circumstances occur when you minimize and re-focus BZFlag. Sometimes, usually under higher CPU loads from what I have found you will become basically stuck, unspawned and just able to see things happening in a sort of slow-motion sense. You still see everyone's positions, but in less frame updates, and bullets tend to not move. Everything moves at almost 0 velocity for the most part.

Well, the result of this mishap, is some interesting screenshots (Not to mention the 2000+ jitter that will make you nr to everyone except yourself. You will be able to see players updating, but they don't see anything from you for what I can understand with this strange glitch.)

Anyways, enjoy the wacky screenshots. Note that I'm not able to move, everything moves real slowly and I am nr during this time. (As in a second is probably almost an hour of real time.)

Initial Spawn + 1 Bullet: http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic1.PNG

Another Bullet + Slightly rising above base + My Jitter warning(Even if I'm nr): http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic2.PNG

My Bullets now farther below as I spawn upward: http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic3.PNG

After I get kicked for being nr: http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic5.PNG

Lots of people shooting: http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic6.png

Still lots shooting: http://sigonasr2.servegame.org/uploader ... s/pic7.png

Is blurring the photos really necessary?

Due to the blur that was inserted into the screenshots, I'm refusing to try debunking this one; too few evidence is provided.

How do you get the bullets to look like that? Mine just look like coloured spheres :|

if you have the newest bzflag (2.16 i believe)
go into options
then go into effects settings
there should be an option called bullet length... turn it up

you should now have happy bullets
For all of you who have asked what a hutty is, there is one as my avatar.

instant map... just add water
